Best Western River Terrace
Ranked #1 of 5 Hotels in Cheboygan
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 27, 2011

We cruised the Inland Waterway and docked overnight at the Best Western. The manager is super friendly and arranged for a van (taxi) to pick us up and take us to the Hack Ma Tack for dinner. Only suggestion I would give others is to make sure your "balcony" on the water IS on the river and not opening to the indoor pool, like ours was. While this might be a plus in the winter months, we were disappointed not to be directly on the river. Walked next door to Big Boy for breakfast - very convenient.

We had a great stay at this hotel. The woman who checked us in was friendly and chatty. I felt very welcome and safe, even alone with my kids hundreds of miles from home. The room was neat and clean featuring a balcony overlooking the river with a screen door, and the fridge was a huge help for storing snacks and milk for our toddler. We stayed on a rainy night and we kept our balcony door open to hear the drops hit the river. When the rain cleared, the river view was lovely. The hotel is near several restaurants and stores, so we had everything at our disposal. We only stopped briefly for breakfast and found more than enough for our needs. We're planning another trip to Cheboygan this summer and we'll be sure to book the Best Western River Terrace again.

My boyfriend and I were on our way to the Upper Peninsula with a friend of ours who was staying in Cheboygan, and we needed a place to crash for the night. We looked at a couple other hotels in Cheboygan, but the Best Western was truly incredible for what we paid. We arrived around 10 p.m., so unfortunately we didn't have lots of time to soak it all in or use the pool. However, the front desk attendant checking us in was very courteous, efficient, and pleasant to work with.

Our room was one that overlooks the river, and so we had a nice balcony. The overall look of the room was very nice, although the entire hotel is a tad bit dated. Before all public Michigan buildings were required to be smoke-free, our room was probably a smoking room because we could smell a tiny bit of the lingering odor from that. But it wasn't a nuisance in any way ... just a minor observation. The bed was very comfortable, and so we got a good night's sleep.

The next morning we had breakfast at the hotel, and it had your typical (decent) hotel breakfast fare: make-your-own Belgian waffles, English muffins, cereal, fruit, etc. No complaints about breakfast; it was completely adequate. The checkout process was very quick and easy, and we were on our way in no time.

Overall, we loved this hotel and would be very happy to stay there again. We'll just have to remember to request a riverside room because that was part of the allure.

Hotel was clean and comfortable. It was very close to road and room door opened to parking lot. Fleetwood Inn and Suites next door looked comparable and was $30.00 less a night. Best Western wouldn't let us cancel room so we stayed there.

The room was HUGE!!! It's so hard to find queen beds these days - this room had two and room to spare. It was at least two feet wider and 8 feet longer than the average motel room. Our room had a river view and balcony. Guests with boats could dock right there at the motel. Watching the river traffic was so relaxing after a day of driving of 3 teenagers. This room and its balcony were the perfect refuge. Dinner was at the Arby's right across the street and a Wal-Mart and other eating places were within a short walk. Made me wish I was staying longer than just one night.

Very large, spotless room with a balcony and riverview. Beautiful indoor pool and hottub. Exerciseroom. Friendly, helpful staff. The only thing that could be better is the quite small breakfastroom, but we loved the waffles.
