While the hotel is nice and the staff is courteous, the breakfast could be better. The rooms could have been updated but were still nice. The hairdryer was outdated, but the location was awesome. I probably would not stay again however.

I guess this should be expected in a tourist destination, but I found the price of the room to be rather expensive (over $200 per night) for a very average room. I was particularly disappointed with the moldy smell of the room. Breakfast was fine, nothing special. I would be inclined to shop around for a better quality room for... More

Probably one of the better locations in Mackinac City. Clean rooms and walking distance to everything. Ferry boats are very close. Nice indoor pool and easy parking. Has a beach but nothing much just a couple chairs but very close to the hotel.

The hotel location is very good and the staff is very curtious. The breakfast is fine as it comes with the stay. Highly recommend visiting this hotel for vacations. Hotel is within walking distance of most everything in town and to various ferries to Mackinac Island.

Everything was clean and fairly new looking. Had a good beach, which is a challenge around there. Great view of the bridge and boats. Breakfast was good and fresh. Closest to downtown area. Walking distance to everything.

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
