My wife and 6-month old son stayed at the Lilac Tree primarily due to the reviews written on Tripadvisor. I was expecting a lot more having stayed at hotels and resorts around the world and I must say, we were disappointed.
Good central location
Outdated rooms in disrepair
Hard beds and pillows
Expensive given the many available options
Limited and cold lobby area
No in-hotel dining options
I have been to Mackinac Island many times over the past 35 years and there are a great many options. We walked the island, looked at hotels and rooms and concluded that unless there are some fairly major changes/updates and they also update their computer system to allow room charges at their sister property, The Chippewa, we will likely opt to stay elsewhere on our next trip, currently scheduled for June 2007.
