We had a great view of the lake, you can't beat that. Beach is good, but not well maintained and is subject to the type of people staying there. Some upgrades to the hotel, but many more needed for an average $225 per night. We had leaky faucets and the chrome finish on fixtures was just about gone. Looks like... More

Just want to say thanks to Dave the Manager and his very friendly staff. We stayed this past Friday & Saturday nights. Dave made sure we had safe parking for our Pick-Up Truck and Trailer along with Harley's. They were full both nights but everything was clean and quite. This will be the first place I call for next years... More

I stayed at Best Western Plus Dockside in Mackinaw City, Michigan on August 6th 2016. We have stayed here many times before and always come back! The room décor is great and the room and bathroom are always clean. The staff is friendly and helpful! The view from my room is an amazing view of Lake Huron! There is a... More

The motel and staff were first class and their location was within walking distance of most local attractions. You are a short walk(or a shuttle pickup at the front door) to the various ferry operators to Mackinac Island too! They have a nice continental breakfast with one of the bigger dining areas I've seen.

Can't beat the private beach which the kids loved. Steps from ferry line to Mack Island as well as downtown Mack City. So great location. Room was nicely furnished but not great, with comfortable beds and pretty up to date styling although some wear marks. One room suite was kind of cramped. Top floor so our beach side balcony was...

What an amazing experience! Although this hotel is older, our room was beautiful. Clean, view of the water, pier and beach. Staff (especially reception area) were welcoming and so helpful. Breakfast is continental but had so much variety. Walking distance to the ferry and downtown area. Great vacation spot for all ages. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

This was a family vacation and we booked 4 rooms months in advance. Our room and another overlooked the courtyard parking lot. There was nothing wrong with this view. We could see the lake and downtown. The other two rooms upgraded to a lake view. We were very happy with our room. It had two queen beds and was roomy.... More

This hotel has a lovely location, However, our patio was covered in spiderweb, sand and bird feathers. The room was very dated with the exception of the large flat screen....but the worst was the small square bed pillows and hard as a rock foam mattresses. Not at all what I would have expected in a $350.00 room.

Best Western Hotel is a very beautiful looking hotel right in the heart of a very busy Tourist Area. The rooms are very nicely decorated, clean and comfortable bed. The breakfast was very extensive and included everything you could possibly want. Right across the street starts shopping, mini-golf, and a very short walk to the Crosswinds Village which has many...
