We enjoyed our stay at the Best Western Plus Dockside Waterfront Inn! Our room was nice, and very clean. The pool and jacuzzi were very nice, and breakfast was very good. The beach is right outside,and very conveniently located near all Mackinaw City has to offer! The only downside was that the hotel wanted $20 more for a king sized... More

It's an older hotel, but it was clean. Hot breakfast is always welcome. TV was out for hours, but evidently an area wide outage, beyond BW's control. But WiFi access was awful, at least in my room. I had to go to the lobby or "business center" to connect. I told the front desk, but that just told me to... More

We visit Mackinaw City every year for the past 8-10 years. We always stay at the Dockside Waterfront because of the pleasant staff, great location, and nice accommodations. We stay here in the summer and fall, and their quality is always consistent.

While the facility itself was just fine, the front desk staff was incompetent. They were rude and misbilled my card before I even checked in. When I made my reservation, I made it very clear that I would give them my card # to hold the room, but I would pay cash when I got there. When I checked in,... More

This was a great hotel. Beautiful room, beach access on 1st floor, close to restaurants and ferries to Mackinac Island, nice bed and good pillows.The breakfast was very good and included in the price. A lot of drawer space and probably the largest TV we have had in a room. You couldn't hear the folks in the room next to... More

After driving 7 hours with a one year old, we were pleasantly surprised by our lake view suite with an additional living room. The room actually had an additional room with a door. Perfect for a pack n play and the younger sleepers. It's a no frills hotel, but it's clean, comfortable and perfect for families. The staff was helpful... More

My husband and I visited Best Western in Mackinaw City in June 2014. We had a suite and it was located on the 4th floor with a lakeside view and balcony over looking Lake Michigan just beautiful! Our room was spacious and very clean and inviting. We heard no noise from anyone outside or in the next room we slept... More

This property has very clean rooms and is located in the heart of all the action. Very quiet room, comfortable bed and the black out shades made the room the darkest we've ever had at a hotel. We slept a long time! The only reason they didn't get a 5 rating is because the beach area was disappointing. Very dirty... More

This hotel canceled our reservation for the 4th of July and said that they had no availability due to a waiting list. When we arrived in town, to our dismay, this hotel and others around it did have availability. When I went in to get a room the same type of room that was cancelled on us was available for... More

Went to check in late in the afternoon and was sent to a room that wasn't cleaned yet. We asked the maid how much longer she thought it would be and she said, "a long time." She called the front desk and told us there were no other rooms ready for us now. We walked all the way back to... More
