Great location, within walking distance of shops and right on the beach. People at the front desk were friendly and accommodating. I needed a screw driver, and Dave the manager provided one. Rooms are clean and neat. Great pool and hot tub area.

Mackinaw City is well worth a visit and this is an excellent place to stay while doing so. The rooms are very well appointed though the coffee machine, fridge and jacuzzi timer are a bit hidden away. There is a very spacious feel, helped by the original spaciousness of the village when originally planned, close to various attractions. The breakfast...

"The staff was friendly and service was great. The room was clean and ours provided an excellent view." We chose a lake view in winter and our beachfront, lake view room provided the view we looked for plus great sunsets and sunrises glistening off the ice and water.

The hotel was not up to usual Best Western standards, kind of plain, breakfast was awful. It was clean and relatively quiet. The location, however, is great. This is one of the most beautiful areas in the country, and I have traveled constantly the last several years. The weather is perfect in the summer if you don't like extreme heat,...

Because of my Diamond status, I received an upgrade to Jacuzzi room, which was very clean (and it is not that easy for it in Mackinaw City hotels, believe me!) and had good quality furniture. Staff was OK, but they tried to have me pay higher price than what I reserved - so have your reservation with you in print,...

We had a lakefront room on the main floor. It was quiet even tough the hotel seemed to be sold out. Beds & pillows were great! The breakfast the next morning was just okay. The coffee was horrible. I should have just made toast. Staff was friendly even with being very busy upon check in.

I've read many Trip Advisor reviews throughout the years and depend on ratings and traveller reviews to plan my vacations, like many do. My spouse and I were excited to visit Mackinaw City for a week and enjoy our end of summer vacation. We booked our reservation with the Best Western Dockside Inn back in May of 2015, anticipating our...

This is the third year in a row that we have chosen this hotel for our Fall trip, and once again we were VERY pleased with our accommodations! The room we were given was clean and comforting. The breakfast bar had many choices, and the hours were such that even my wife, who likes to sleep in, was able to...
