The thing to have now in the hotels in Mac City is a 25' deluxe hot breakfast buffet w/ waffles. This hotel is no exception. The buffet is quite good. The rooms are large and very comfortable. You don't have to sit on the bed to watch t.v. Having a balcony and the waterfront is great. We started out w/... More

Free breakfast with room so so not the best I've had. We had to dodge bats loading our car this morning, I called front desk ask them to turn on lights they replied they did not have a key to turn them on..I think they should be left on all night. We were on the first floor facing the beach.

We stayed here after a two day trip to the Island. The room was clean and comfortable. My husband was thrilled with the big screen TV. Wifi only worked reliably if I was close to the window. The beach was wide and there were nice lounge chairs for use by guests. Staff was friendly and efficient. The breakfast bar was... More

We stayed in a non water view suite. The room was huge. 4 poster beds, comfortable living room, 2 flat screen TVs. The room was immaculate. The hot breakfast was great. The location was perfect- walk to everything. Best room I've had in a long time.

We stayed here one night when traveling through MI when we decided not to stay on Mackinac Island. We hadn't stayed at a Best Western before, but will definitely in the future. This was the nicest hotel we stayed in on a week long trip to MI. Location was outstanding, checked in on the spur and they negotiated price based... More

Let me preface this review by saying that I am extremely OCD and quite claustrophobic. I spent HOURS perusing Mackinaw City hotel reviews, having nightmares about cleanliness, bedbugs, germs, clean linens, space, etc -- I am VERY picky about cleanliness and, since I am claustrophobic, we never rent just one room -- we always stay in larger suites. Because of... More

This hotel is new but poorly designed, especially for people with mobility issues. There should have been an elevator near the front desk for the breakfast area located above the lobby. Having been told when making reservations that I had mobility limitations, particularly with handling stairs, the hotel gave us a room that required either using the stairs or walking... More
