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. The breakfast provided at... More

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.

Only disappointing thing was no microwave & refrigerator. Everything else was great and would stay there again. Breakfast was great and room was excellent. Beautiful exterior. 200 characters minimum is rude and will not fill out another TripAdvisor survey again.

Stayed in a ground level, waterside room, with direct access to the beach. The room we stayed in looked to be updated recently. Nice comfortable king bed, large Jacuzzi tub with black marble tile in room. The bathroom was recently updated as well with the same black marble tile on floor - very nice. Nice flat screen TV in room.... More

Our room was very spacious, clean and the beds were very comfortable. The breakfast was fantastic and the dining room was huge. The location is great, because you could walk to the main strip, boats and restaurants.

Rooms need updating. Our room had a strong musty smell. There was a portable dehumidifier in the room, but it didn't help. The breakfast was standard, but the room it was served in also needed updating. The location was good, but I'd give that up for a better room.

This hotel was within walking distance to downtown. It was on the water side and was close to the boats that went back and forth to Mackinac Island. If you like a big hotel/motel this is the place for you. It was a little bigger than I like. The jacuzzi was very nice. The air temperature was warm enough. Pool... More

Very easy check in and out. Staff very friendly and helpful. Close to the docks for ease of access to the island ferry. Although the hotel was very full, and a wine and hopps festival right down the street, with live music there was very little noise.

I love this Best Western. The staff were so helpful when I had a problem with strong odor in big beautiful room near the pool, because of allergies/asthma. We were quickly and easily moved to another even Nicer room. I would highly recommend this place.
