My mom and I went to Mackinac Island for a 3-day vacation in August 2013, but it was too expensive to stay on the island so we stayed in St. Ignace at the Best Western Harbour Pointe. I was super duper impressed with the Best Western Harbour Pointe. It's divided into several buildings, and my mom and I lucked out by getting the one-level building. Nobody above us to stomp around late at night. Outside of each room were patio chairs so you could sit outside of your room and just enjoy the weather and the water. Oh yes, we were on the water! Lake Huron to be exact.
The hotel also had free warm continental breakfast every morning, the staff was friendly, AND there were nightly bonfires with marshmallow roasting (marshmallows and sticks provided by the hotel).
The hotel was also within driving or walking (we walked) distance of the Mackinac Island ferries (I liked Star Line) and the main street of town. There are some cute little restaurants and gift shops and a nice boardwalk along the water. The town also seemed to have something going on every night, including outdoor movies and fireworks. We saw fireworks for free, and we didn't even have to leave the hotel! We just sat outside on the patio chairs and watched the fireworks by the water!
