We stayed here for one night as we were arriving in town in the evening and heading to the island for the rest of our trip the following day. My husband picked this hotel due to its high rating. While on our 6+ drive we kept getting phone calls from the hotel wanting to know if we were still coming....

While traveling over the U.S. we stay at Best Western, I know what to expect, which is good. Mackinaw City Best Western Plus is no exception. Check in was effortless the room was comfortable and check out was easy. People went out of their way to help.

Very happy with the hotel and staff. The only downside was our room on the second floor opened out to the pool, on the main floor, which made it very dark in the room. Breakfast was great, and I would highly recommend this hotel.

The staff was great. The rooms were very nice and a good value for the money. However, the hotel has 2 wings and they are not at the same level. They only have on elevator and there are ramps that need to be used to access offset levels. We were in the wing facing the lake and that meant ramps...

Great breakfast and pool / hot tub room. Rooms are well setup, clean and comfortable. We have stayed at the Best Western Dockside several years in a row for the Zoo-de-mack bike ride and have never been disappointed.

I would rate this hotel higher had I not been treated rather rudely by one of the housekeeping employees. Only one, I must emphasize! Most were kind and very accommodating. The day we checked out, I was returning to my room after breakfast when I ran into the housekeeper. She commented to me "Oh, you're still here." It was 9:30...

We stay here twice a year, spring and fall. We always enjoy our stay here, close to the crossings and the Breakfast buffet never lets us down. The pool is always clean and the staff is very friendly. Our best deals have always been over the intrnet.

This is a very nice inn.Our room was on the lower floor steps away from the water. The room was very clean and tidy. The beds were comfortable. I will stay here again if I come this way. We were given coupons to use at nearby resturants and stores. This inn is only a few blocks from main street Mackinaw...

This is a beautiful hotel. The location is perfect and it's easy to get to the ferry to Mackinaw Island. The staff was very friendly and helpful with directions and places to eat. Janet and Marie made our room clean and provided everything we needed. Breakfast was excellent, with several choices and the hostess was very friendly. The weather was...

Great location for choice of ferries. Nice to see the lake from our 2nd story sliding glass door. Staff was helpful and polite. We can always depend on Best Western for top quality and comfortable beds.
