Always clean and comfortable. Nice front desk people. Average breakfast. Very crowded on weekends but good rates after normal tourist season. Close to a lot of places including the night park, shops and food. Have stayed here 2 times previously. Someone had a fight with their wife and went pounding on doors after 10pm but not the fault of the... More

We stayed at Best Western for 3 nights. The location is spectacular. We had a first-floor room that opened right up to the lakeshore. The Mackinac Island ferries sail by & dock at a port that is walking distance from the hotel. Our room was clean, though the wall that separated the closet from the sink was covered in sticky...

This is an average Best Western Plus property with a few special features. It is on the waterfront of Lake Huron with half the rooms facing the water. Half of the remaining rooms which face the parking lot have a view of Mackinac Bridge. Rooms are nice and well appointed with fridge and coffeemaker. Front desk staff were friendly and... More

Hotel was really nice. We were lucky enough to have a room facing Lake Huron. Rooms were clean. Beds were comfortable. Very close to all the action & ferries. We were there to ride the Tunnel of Trees which is always beautiful, even in the rain! The indoor pool/hot tub area was great, very large and relaxing. The only caveat... More

We have stayed at many Best Western Plus properties and this one doesn't even come close. When we checked in there were several big laundry carts heaped with soiled linens parked in the parking lot and when we checked out they were still there. The rooms we were given were big but very dark and depressing. All of the windows... More

Only stayed for overnight stop. Rooms were clean and nicely furnished. Breakfast was good with plenty of options to please everyone. The only downfall I have is the open layout of the entrance for most of the roams. They are all outside. Even the entrance for the dinning room is outside on the third floor. Better hope it isn't raining... More

The rooms were very nice. The beds were comfortable. We had our own refrigerator. The staff was very helpful and courteous. The hotel is within walking distance to many stores, restaurants and other points of interest.

The room was very clean and well kept. Very nice pine furniture. The view was terrific! The breakfast was the standard buffet offered by most hotels in the area; adequate enough, but excellent for the price (it's free). The staff was polite enough, but I've stayed at hotels where they were more friendly (maybe just a bad day?). All in... More

Rooms were very nice, the bed comfortable, the water side balcony room very nice and great. We were able to walk to a local restaurant for dinner and then relax after traveling all day, the rain the next morning prevented us from traveling to Mackinac Island the next morning for sight seeing but a relaxing view.

Best Western Dockside is a great place to see. We have a room overlooking Lake Huron. Most of the rooms have views. Our room is very clean with nice furnishings. The breakfast has something for everybody from fresh fruit and yogurt, my preference, to eggs, sausage, cereals, waffles,etc. The staff has been very friendly and helpful.
