This hotel is in a great location for the business my husband was in town for and the Stonehouse restaurant ( a local favorite ) is within walking distance. Less then a 10 minute drive is the Stone Cup Coffee House where I enjoyed a delicious raspberry white chocolate scone and medium Chai tea for under $5.00. So good. The...

While a little dated, this hotel makes up for it with great staff, from check in to the attached restaurant everyone was very attentive and had great attitudes. The breakfast is and sit down order type, with ample portions.

We are quite pleased with the Best Western Pioneer Inn & Suites. There is no such thing as a perfect hotel, but this one comes close because of the facilities, but mostly because of the excellent caring staff. We requested several additional items for our room that the staff quickly and happily accommodated. We like that there is a very...

The hotel was clean and quiet, however it needs some updating. Staff was friendly. The breakfast was good but under staffed. The waitresses did a good job staying calm under pressure. No toiletries in bathroom.

I found this Best Western to be in need of an upgrade, but it was clean and comfortable. The set-up is a bit odd and confusing, so the front desk has to hand out maps--not exactly an ideal situation for what should be a simple, 2 floor hotel. There was a panel of siding missing from the front with no...

Staff was very helpful, rooms clean and comfy and a hot served complimentary breakfast in the morning. We've never stayed at a place with the breakfast area that feels and serves like a restaurant- very nice. Wonderful stay!

I had a couple minor things I left some feedback about when I got an email after my departure. Nothing I would say I could "complain" about, but just a couple minor issues. Anyhow, it was super impressive that the general manager got back to me immediately and apologize profusely. I would return. For sure. These things were not that...

Decided to stay at the Best Western because it had a bar and restaurant on our way to Mackinac Island. We choose the room with a hot tub in the room because there is no hot tub in the pool area. What a wonderful way to enjoy the evening. The hot tub was a wonderful way to relax. The room...

My wife and I were doing a circle tour around Lake Superior and booked this place for one stop. Our room decor was a step above some of our other stops and was very quiet overnight although there were many cars in the parking lot. The only downside was a lack of complementary free choice breakfast that we enjoy very...

What a disappointment for a chain. There was not enough staff in the two restaurants and the ones who were there were unfriendly. There was no hot water for showers and the pop machines were not working. The worst (for a group of seniors on tour), was that the toilets were so low to the ground. It made it very...
