The rooms were clean and nice. Great room service. I lost my boat tickets in the windy night of check in and had to purchase another set of five at the boat dock but one of the room attendents found them in the parking lot. Could not get reimbursed but they are good for next year. Hopefully we will use... More

Staff were extremely helpful. I had forgotten my cell phone charger, and they charged my phone for me in the office! They also let us keep our car there for two days while we were to Mackinac Island. I would definitely recommend Best Western Dockside to anyone traveling to this area.

We stayed in October and had a great view from our room. The heated pool and spa were very relaxing. The Hotel was also close to the ferries. Our room was clean with reasonable rates that also came with a nice breakfast. We would deffinately return again.

Very enjoyable location on the water. The views from the room were fantastic. Beautiful facility. The breakfast room & recreational facilities were extensive and well maintained. Great things to do in the area.

We stayed at this hotel and we were very happy with our choice. I had looked at several reviews for different hotels and also for this one in Mackinaw city. I wasn't sure which one to choose as I saw good and bad reviews for all of them. I am glad we chose this hotel though. It was clean and... More

Stayed here in the off-season of October and two of the three nights were packed but you’d never know it due to how quiet it was. When we were in our room it was like we were the only guests - we were on the 4th floor. The rooms and the the hotel in general was well kept and clean.... More

I have stayed here a few times and it is always good in comparision to the others. Lets face it, there are no "high end" hotels on the strip, however this place is clean, friendly, and a great location. I always stay by the water and the suites are nice. The only thing I wish was better, are the balconies......they... More

Very clean, very roomy and clean rooms, great pool and hottub. Very friendly staff. Amazing hotel for the price! Perfect location, easy to get to, right on the beach. Very good breakfast, has a nice eating room and a nice weight room. It has a very nice common room with a fireplace

Arrived late in the evening with little info on how to get to Mackinac Island. The hotel staff was welcoming and informative. Upgraded us to a lake side room with direct access to the beach. Breakfast buffet was excellent. They offered ferry boat information for transport over to the island. Suggested we leave our vehicle in their lot while we... More

Very good, I would stay there again. Although I would check the bed earlier, as I found hairs in the bed, including pubic hairs. The pool area was very nice and the view would have been amazing had it not been for the non-stop rain. The room was beautiful.
