"The staff was friendly and service was great. The room was clean and ours provided an excellent view." We chose a lake view in winter and our beachfront, lake view room provided the view we looked for plus great sunsets and sunrises glistening off the ice and water.

The hotel was not up to usual Best Western standards, kind of plain, breakfast was awful. It was clean and relatively quiet. The location, however, is great. This is one of the most beautiful areas in the country, and I have traveled constantly the last several years. The weather is perfect in the summer if you don't like extreme heat,... More

Because of my Diamond status, I received an upgrade to Jacuzzi room, which was very clean (and it is not that easy for it in Mackinaw City hotels, believe me!) and had good quality furniture. Staff was OK, but they tried to have me pay higher price than what I reserved - so have your reservation with you in print,... More

We had a lakefront room on the main floor. It was quiet even tough the hotel seemed to be sold out. Beds & pillows were great! The breakfast the next morning was just okay. The coffee was horrible. I should have just made toast. Staff was friendly even with being very busy upon check in.

I've read many Trip Advisor reviews throughout the years and depend on ratings and traveller reviews to plan my vacations, like many do. My spouse and I were excited to visit Mackinaw City for a week and enjoy our end of summer vacation. We booked our reservation with the Best Western Dockside Inn back in May of 2015, anticipating our... More

This is the third year in a row that we have chosen this hotel for our Fall trip, and once again we were VERY pleased with our accommodations! The room we were given was clean and comforting. The breakfast bar had many choices, and the hours were such that even my wife, who likes to sleep in, was able to... More

Some of the motels in Mackinaw City are closed in October, but the BW is open and is CHEAP for a 4+ star motel. Room rates are about $59-$79 and full hot breakfast is included. Motel is within walking distance to all boats and downtown.

My husband and I highly recommend this hotel. The room was great - large with a beautiful view of Lake Huron. Bed and pillows were very comfortable, housekeeping very detailed. Good internet reception in room. Front desk was friendly and informative. We will stay here again on our next trip to Mackinaw City.

So many excellent features at a great price! Our first fall trip there as we usually go in the summer. Room was amazing with a spectacular view. Never had to notify the office of any concerns. Breakfast bar had something for everyone and was always stocked. Staff keep breakfast room clean and organized. Pool and hot tub very clean and... More
