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

I have stayed in every hotel in America, including Best Western. I've never had an issue where the manager calls me a liar and threatens to call police if I don't leave the hotel immediately for reporting an issue with the bathroom. The breakfast bar had uncooked food, orange juice that looked and tasted like water, and the hotel was... More

The room we were given was part of a set up with rooms "A & B", which was a little weird, but not a major problem. The room was spacious and the beds were OK - not pillow-top mattresses, but comfortable enough, but the walls are paper thin and we could hear both sides of rooms and all the conversations,... More

awesome location. You can easily walk into the city and super close to the ferry. In room wifi was trash, it was completely unusable so if you need to check in on work like me be prepared to walk to starbucks. Overall very clean and nice.

Hotel was very clean and very nice. Hotel front desk could have been a little nicer. Definitely would stay there again. Breakfast was very nice and so was the beach. I recommend a first floor beach side room. We has our own entryway the beach. LOVED THAT!!
