Based on positive reviews here, we recently stayed at the Main Street Inn for our first trip to Mackinac Island. We were not let down. The location is perfect, right off the ferry dock and in the heart of the downtown area. We stayed in a deluxe standard room that faced out the back of the hotel, and though it did not feature a great view it was probably much quieter than rooms facing Main Street. The room was large, very clean, and cheerfully decorated. And turndown service each night included some of the Island’s fabled fudge, as well as a coupon at checkout for a free half pound on our way out!
While we would have loved to have stayed at the Grand Hotel, we figured we saved close to a thousand dollars staying at the Main Street Inn, and spending the afternoon at the Grand eating lunch and having drinks. Plus the Main Street Inn is much more convenient for taking a carriage tour, renting bikes, or trying one of the local restaurants.
Many of our friends on the east coast have sadly never been to Mackinac Island, or even heard of it. But we’ve sang the praises of the Island, and the Main Street Inn as the place to stay, since our return.
