We had planned a trip to Michigan with a list of destinations we had hoped to visit. We were booking hotels as we went and on the morning of October 23, we booked this hotel for that night with no issues. We got a phone call hours later that they were going ahead and closing the hotel for the season...

"Nice clean and wonderful breakfast included in our stay. Close to local areas to eat. Rooms nice big and clean. My granddaughter enjoyed the indoor pool as it was getting colder outside for our stay. Highly recommended.

We arrived rather late so missed the view of the lake in the daylight until the next morning. The staff were very friendly and greeted us with enthusiasm. There is only one elevator and it is centrally located so if your room is at either end, it is a bit of a walk if you need the elevator (there are...

Recently stayed here on the last night of the season. It was just as nice as the last time we stayed. You would have never know it was the last night. The room (105) was clean, neat and in good repair. The screen slider stuck, but that was to be expected with the sand from the summer season in the...

My wife and I had a very good experience when we visited Best Western Dockside. I was greeted by the ladies at the front desk when I walked in and they gave me the room cards and directions to a 4th floor room with a great view of Lake Huron. The room was very clean and seemed to be newly...

Very mixed experience. Loved the town and location of this hotel. However, physical lay out of this old hotel is a bit of a challenge for all but the most athletic. Asked for a ground level room and it was a flight of stairs down from the parking lot. Ramp for the luggage cart was at the opposite end of...

We enjoyed our visit here, very nice staff. Clean rooms and the pool was kept up nicely. Very close to all the shops and we were able to walk to eat at nearby restaurants and we found ice cream right across the road

Had a very good stay here while in Mackinaw City. Lobby is a bit small but is nicely done up and front desk staff pleasant and accommodating...ie: providing us with Star Line Ferry tickets to Mackinac Island and arranging for the ferry shuttle to pick us up at the hotel. Our king bed room on the 4th floor facing the...

We had room 103. Down a couple of steps and the sliding glass doors opened up on the beach. Great room, great view, convenient to the ferry. Shepler's ferry will pick you and return you to your hotel. One of the best hotels we have ever stayed in. We got a rate of $89 plus 9.79 tax. Great rate out...
