“Very nice!”
Reviewed June 15, 2014

We stayed here for a weekend during the Lilac Festival on Mackinac Island. Great location within short walk to all touristy stores, restaurants, and ferry to the island. Hotel was very nice, clean, comfortable and friendly, helpful staff. Breakfast was decent. Only negative was that the Wi Fi kept losing connection. Would definitely stay there again.

Room was really nice. Nice wood furniture & bed. Nice choose of pillow. Bed was comfortable. Very clean. Very close to ferry You can walk to it,or take there free shuttle. My only complaint would be the breakfast. It was ok,just lacked some things,like oatmeal & yogert. They had oatmeal in packs. But I like when they have it made. But it wasn't to bad. Still a nice hotel

This hotel is located within walking distance of all the ferry services, downtown area, and many good restaurants. Hotel has beach access facing Mackinac Island. Good breakfast included adds to the value of the place. WiFi however, was a BIG disappointment!!! Usually didn't work, when it did it wa spotty at best.

Do not stay here, as this place has awful customer service. My boyfriend and I were excited to stay here, but the hotel cancelled our reservations due to a glitch with Expedia. After we had already booked our vacation plans, travel, ect., Best Western refused to honor our reservation despite us getting a confirmation email. After a long phone conversation with several staff and a manager, they're only option for us was to find another hotel, they refused to help us out in any way, despite the internet glitch being their fault, not ours. I have never heard of a hotel refusing to honor a confirmed reservation, this was extremely disappointing. I completely do NOT recommend this hotel seeing as they clearly have no care for their customers. So disrespectful and ridiculous.

Fantastic Location and Great View of the Lake. Our Room had 2 Queen Beds with Balcony View that faced the Beach and Water. Loved the Room Décor and the Beds were very Comfortable. Was Wonderful to Open up the Balcony Doors at Night and Listen to the Water and the Birds to help you go to Sleep. The room is a little small but very clean and you don’t spend much time in the Room. Very close to the Ferry and the Downtown Restaurants. Breakfast was Average and the only down side was the Midge Flies but the hotel had no control over them. I guess they come every year around this time for a couple of weeks. Staff was very friendly. Would stay at this hotel again. Need to know that the rooms are outside Entrance Rooms, and they only have one Elevator.

Room Tip: Rooms are Outside Entrance Rooms and only 1 Elevator. Traveled with my Husband and his Parents and...
