Nice hotel right on whe water. All rooms have balconies or patios. About a 4 block walk to the central tourist area of Mackinaw City full of restaurants, shops, and bars. All rooms open to an outside corridor not an indoor hallway. This can make the walk to the indoor pool interesting when the temperature drops into the 30's as...

We were lucky enough to stay here before they raised the prices for end of season and weekend. We paid $99 (tax included) for a jacuzzi king Courtside room and the room was great. The decor and TV were nice and the jacuzzi was awesome! The room was very clean and quiet and the bed (memory foam) was quite comfortable....

I stayed for one night in October 2015 with a group. The property appeared well-run, although the lobby staff seemed to have some communication challenges. The price was fair, and the hotel is well-located. Rooms were just basic, but ours had an unpleasant smell. The bedding particularly had a strong and irritating odor, perhaps some disinfectant? Sleeping was difficult due...

We enjoyed the Best Western for a one night stay. We didn't use any of the amenities except the breakfast that was part of the price. The breakfast was nice. The rooms were very nicely decorated and pleasant. We didn't do much other than sleep because we had come in late and had to leave early. But everything looked very...

Great Hotel. Walking distance to everything. Ferry to Mackinac Island is located right next door to the hotel. You can purchase tickets to the ferry which includes a discount, right at the hotel. There is a large beach front with lounge chairs. The Staff were very professional. Full hot breakfast is included.Loved our stay. We will definitely stay here again.

The price was right and staff was very helpful and pleasant. The room was clean and well kept and the bed was amazingly comfortable! The location was perfect for walking to area attractions and great choice of restaurants. The breakfast included an excellent variety of hot AND cold foods, some healthy for health conscious people. Will definitely stay here again.

Spent one night in Mackinaw on the way home from northern Wisconsin. Enjoyed walking around Mackinaw City before dinner. The location of the hotel is perfect. The staff is friendly and helpful When we had a problem with the door of a wardrobe the maintenance man was in our room within 10 minutes to fix it. Would like to come...
