Our room was very clean and the bed was comfortable. We stayed in the Jacuzzi lakeside and enjoyed the patio in the morning and evening. The only problem was that the breakfast area was very hot and humid. The eggs were instant and had no flavor. The biscuits and gravy was very bland and the fruit came from a can.... More

Breakfast room is always crowded - be prepared to stand in line! Room was clean, but nothing special. This location is convenient - shopping and entertainment within walking distance. Close to ferries, also.

Nice place to stay. Conveniently located. Short on parking spaces. breakfast was well presented and staffed. Swimming area clean and Hot Tub was great. Some of the counter staff do not speak good English and are difficult to understand.

The location is the best part of the hotel! Beach was clean and sandy. Pool was clean and family friendly. Lots to do within Walking. You can bike/walk to ferry. Breakfast was free and decent. Coffee/Waffles. Rooms were stuffy and dated. But clean. But your not in the room anyway!!

The rooms are plain and small. The location next to the ferry is perfect. The pool is nice and the breakfast is free and beats McDonalds. The beach is sandy out about 50 yards. Overall we would stay here again if we were returning to Mackinac island.

We really enjoyed our visit here. We had a room right on the water! The ferries are close by, all the eateries and shopping are within walking distance. Breakfast was nice, including scrambled eggs, sausage, biscuits and gravy and of course cereals and breads. Truly enjoyable visit.

We always stay at the Best Western. The 1st floor rooms were great. We got to walk right out to the lake. Met some nice people in the other rooms. My 5 year old son liked the beach and sand and the swimming pool.

Our room was very clean, and the staff was very nice. We stayed for 2 nights with four of us in the room. It was very clean and comfortable. The pool was spacious and warm and the kids loved it. We had large TV and credenza for storing luggage was a nice bonus. The alarm clock radio had a night... More

Once again, we found ourselves surrounded by a very knowledgeable, pleasant, and helpful staff at a Best Western hotel. Rooms offer lake views, mini refrigerators, free wi-Fi, indoor swimming pool, and a complimentary breakfast, which lacks imagination and variety. Nothing can beat its location in Mackinaw City. All local restaurants, attractions, & shopping are within walking distance. The ferry to... More

The room amenities were great. The bed was super comfortable. The staff....well, not so much. I felt like I was bothering them when I asked a question, they were just cold and non inviting. Breakfast was unorganized and most of the selections were empty and waiting to be refilled. Not what I expected for the cost of the hotel and... More
