“You did again Kristen”
Reviewed September 30, 2013

This is our 10 year on the island and our 4th stay at the inn. We will never stay anywhere else Kristen makes us feel at home and we love her company. We always stay four days so we can get in as much as we can but we still do not see everything. Paula the housekeeper is great she takes very good care of us the rooms our always very clean. The outdoor patio is so nice we had breakfast there on our last day. Kristen is what keeps us coming back like my husband says a room is a room we could stay anywhere but Kristen keeps us coming back. It is like being at home only you are on vacation. We will be there next year our 35 wedding anniversary is the first day we are on the island and I cannot wait to see the island and Kristen again. See you next year

We were scheduled to stay at the Chippewa Inn but we arrived early to Mackinac Island and they did not have an opening for the first unscheduled night. I checked Trip Advisor for preferred locations and started calling. We were able to find an open night at the Market Street Inn and it was the best experience we had on a 35 day road trip. Kristen as noted in the earlier reviews was amazing. She made us feel very welcome and we felt like we lived there. She gave us multiple options and suggestions regarding places to visit and eat which were all spot on. Even though she was not always at the front desk there was a phone in the lobby to call her and she immediately responded to the call in a matter of minutes. The room was immaculately clean and very homey. As I noted we stayed at the Chippewa the next night and it was a very nice hotel but we felt like we were just another guest. At the Market Street Inn we felt like part of the family. We were able to interact with the other guests and Kristen at an excellent breakfast which only added to the feeling of being more than just another paying guest. In addition, the cost of the lodging was about half the cost of the Chippewa which made it a great value. We have stayed at several bed and breakfast locations and this is by far the best yet. Thanks Kristen for a wonderful experience

Kristen's warm greeting set the tone for our stay at her lovely bed and breakfast. She took care to find out what we wanted to do while on the island and gave us good guidance. The Inn was well-located (near the fort) but far enough away from the center of town to be more peaceful. We felt as if we were in the lap of luxury in our room with its wonderfully comfortable king-size bed and Jacuzzi. I liked the approach to breakfast; we made our selections the night before and it was served wherever we wanted it -- in the garden, in the sitting room or in our room. It was not fussy, just a simple, cold breakfast. All in all, a perfect stay in a beautiful place.

My husband and I spent four nights at the Market Street Inn and cannot think of anything that would have made our stay better. Kristen was very knowledgeable about the island and all of the information and suggestions she made were exactly as she said. We were very pleased with the location of the Inn and felt we could not have picked a better location. We enjoyed people watching from the porch and eating on the patio. We will recommend the Inn to everyone we know and will definitely stay here any time we have a chance.

My wife and I spent two days at the Market Street Inn, our first visit to Mackinac Island. The inn exceeded our expectations. Kristen was so friendly and helpful, we felt like we were visiting a friend, flexible to our needs. The inn is centrally located, and close to many of the restaurants and attractions we tried. Very quiet, clean, comfortable, and well decorated. Our room was a standard queen with TV/free internet/ and large bath. Little things like the hair dryer, and soft robes are included. Breakfast on the patio was pleasant with plenty of really good coffee. We valued the inn because it is smaller and more personal than some of the larger hotels, yet with lots of quality.

Room Tip: Standard 1st floor room with queen bed. I did not see an elevator to the 2nd floor.

Nice B&B close to many attractions. Our host Kristen was very friendly, knowledgable and accessible. Her restaurant tips were very helpful. The rooms were comfortable and the back patio was great for breakfast. Our group had 4 rooms and no complaints. We enjoyed meeting Kristen and she made our Mackinac Island experience a great memory.

Room Tip: Room 4 and the garden room are a good choice. All rooms we saw were nicely decorated.

The Market Street Inn has a lot going for it: Kristen and her amazing staff, relatively inexpensive rooms for the island, great location, great amenities, tasty snacks, and again did I mention how incredibly helpful Kristen is (the best!).

Unfortunately, we would not stay here again if we returned because of the terrible noise that woke us up multiple times from others at the Inn. There was a family of about 6-8 folks also staying at the inn (all adults, no kids) who seemed to think that they could have the run of the place and were yelling in the halls at midnight and talking loudly outside at all hours. My husband and I mentioned this to Kristen in the morning and she was very apologetic and said she herself and asked them to be quiet as well. She said the family was wanting to come back again next year but that they would have to understand that that sort of behavior wasn't allowed at the inn. I do know that Kristen took the issue very seriously and I appreciate that. But for us, we just wouldn't be able to take the risk again that other noisy guests (and the thin walls of the inn) would spoil our stay and so, I'm sad to say, we would not stay at Market Street Inn if back again.

Room Tip: Room 205 has a good view but lots of street noise.

It is so hard to even know what to say except the guests who were noisy will not be returning. My deepest apologies for what should have been a wonderful stay. Sincerely, Kristen B. Innkeeper
