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.

Closest motel to Shepler's ferry.. A little outdated, but clean and nice. Comfortable beds. Breakfast bar was varied and food ok. Front desk could be a bit more helpful with information and directions.

It was nice to have a sandy beach right on the water. Great view from our 3rd floor room! Rooms were nicely decorated and clean. Wifi didn't work all the time so that was disappointing. Huge breakfast buffet but the same everyday. Within walking distance to all the shops which is what we wanted.

Stayed here to participate in the bridge walk. Very clean and comfortable. Loved being right on the beach. Very close to activities. The room was great! Price was higher due to the holiday weekend but I guess that's business.

We were so impressed with the beautiful furniture in the room as well as the amazing view off of our balcony! Our beds were so comfortable I had the best sleep I had all week! Get a 4th floor room so you could have the vaulted ceiling. I will definitely stay here again! Very clean as well.

Room was clean, rate was right. Wifi just did not work. You could log on, but internet speed was so slow most sites timed out (I've never had TripAdvisor time out on me until I was at this hotel). I guess I've come to take free wireless internet connection so for granted that when this hotel's connection took me back... More

Reserved a king room with spa lakeside in June for Labor day weekend. Requested lake side higher floor. When we checked in, desk staff said "not what we reserved and asked if we had reservation printout showing that we reserved Lake front room". Obviously they have played the scam before. Show lakeside room online, charge for lakeside room, then ask... More
