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!!

Even though it isn't a luxury hotel or anything the Best Western Dockside has been our choice in Mackinaw for multiple trips up now. The rooms are cozy and have just been renovated and the new bedding was very comfortable and the main bonus of the place versus the other beachfront hotels is the location. Great location we walked to... More

This hotel's best feature is it's location. The rooms are clean, beds comfy. We had a room right off the beach and the view was fabulous. We enjoyed free breakfast each morning. The staff isn't overly friendly, but i wasn't there to make friends - simply relax and enjoy and believe me I did enjoy every minute I spent at... More

We had a clean neat room with a comfortable bed. But the decorating is dated with dark wood work and beige walls. The room had a large flat screen TV, mini frig, and Jacuzzi but no microwave. The WiFi was so slow as to be non-existent, probably due to high usage. The room had a nice view to the east... More

My husband and I were here in September for our honeymoon. The room was beautiful. We had a jacuzzi room on the lowest level where we could walk out onto the beach. At night, you can see the lights from the Mackinaw Bridge lit up. We loved it. Right in town, we walked to restaurants, to get fudge and hot... More
