We held our family reunion at our home but becasue we had so many people coming from all over the country, I worked with Main Street Inn to get our extended family set up with lodging here. I couldn't have asked for a better experience! My uncle is handicapped and because there is no designated handicapped parking near the building... More

As you enter the lobby you think you're coming into the historic hotel until you see the rooms which are very modern, like visiting somebody's home. We stayed in the upstairs number seven which is the largest room in the hotel. Spectacular view of the river as well as skylights in a huge comfy bed. Right off the bedroom is... More

My husband and I loved the suite - amazing view of the river, comfortable bed and roomy shower. The staff was very friendly and told us about great local restaurants and things to do. Very quiet at night...no noise from anywhere in the inn. Nice nearby river walk.

I came into town on business for the week (Ionia) and noticed the lack of larger or nicer hotels in the area. I decided to extend my search from Ionia to East Grand Rapids and somehow was lucky enough to find this little gem on the river. The staff is super nice and very helpful. My room (#4) Was roomy...

Easy to find location, downtown Lowell, on the river. We stayed in room 4, which was a smaller room, but very similar in size to other historic hotels where we've stayed. While this looks like a historic hotel, its really very new with modern conveniences, like large showers, flat screen televisions and Keurig coffee makers. Our room opened up to... More

What a beautiful location on the Grand River in a really town. A great place to go to get away from it all. The staff was great, the room was beautiful and clean. It was easy to get around the Lowell and to get into Grand Rapids if needed.

Our hotel stay was wonderful. The owners of this lovely Inn have thought of everything. The rooms are well appointed with very nice furnishings. The bathrooms were better than some of the better hotels I have stayed at. The quaintness of this Inn overlooking the Flat River gives a wonderful ambiance experience.
