great, clean hotel well located to downtown and other amenities. I would recommend this hotel. It is close to the ferries and downtown. The rooms are clean and the front desk is well staffed. The beach view is great with morning coffee.

My husband and I were lucky enough to book last room available. It was on the fourth floor with a balcony overlooking the water. The best nights sleep, we were able to leave patio door open all night with a cool breeze off the lake and the sounds of waves. Staff was very friendly and helpful. The only thing that could be improved upon is the breakfast choices. I would have liked to see some more healthy choices. When we come back for a vacation experience we will definitely book this same hotel and hope to get the same exact room. Wonderful!

Great place to stay. Good location. Within walking distance to shops and restaurants. Very clean room. Friendly staff. Hotel appearance was good and lobby was clean. Coffee 24 hours in the lobby is a plus for us. Reasonable price. Great view of the lake and sunrise. Will visit again.

We enjoyed the Best Western Dockside in Mackinaw City. The location was close to the boats going to Mackinaw Island. The hotel was right on the beach and the spa in the room was wonderful. The breakfast area is unusual as it overlooks the area on a second story level. This hotel is close to everything.

Stopped by the Travel Center/Welcome Center on the way into Mackinaw City, where we found a coupon booklet that listed coupons for some of the hotels in Mackinaw City, and saved quite a bit of money on our stay here, though it was still ten dollars more than was listed on the coupon.
I was afraid that I would be "stuck" in a less than desirable room since I was using the coupon, but was pleased to find a large room with two queen sized poster beds, a sofa, and a table with two chairs! We were very happy with the room, and with the breakfast buffet that had a good number of choices of food to eat, and the eating area was much larger than what we normally find in a chain hotel. It helps to go in the off season, if you are looking for lower rates.

Room Tip: Even though it was on the third floor, room 330B was a great room with easy access to the breakfast...

Stayed here one night while passing through town - was here literally less than 12 hours! Skipped breakfast - didn't want to deal with trying to find it on the third floor. Stay AWAY from the buffet restaurant across the street - horrible food doesn't begin to cover it! My room was on the water - I'm sure it would be lovely to have that balcony to sit and watch the boats in the summertime. It was a bit too cold and rainy to do that on my stay. Rooms are very large, the furniture looks to be recently redone. Good water pressure in the shower! I'd stay here again.

Room Tip: Waterside if possible - great views.

The front dest staff was very condensating and made me feel like they were doing me a favor to let me stay ther. The hotel lacl pf a maintnence person 24/7 left a lot to be desired. The best part of our stay was the breakfast, it was as usual above expectations. The food was hot and well presented. It was the best part of our stay.
