Booked a room at the Best Western in January for a 2 night stay in early April. Got a call 10 hours before we were leaving for Mackinaw City that our room was cancelled but we were rebooked at a Hamilton. Say what? We picked the Best Western because of tripadvisor reviews (#3 of 39), we have a Best Western...

Reviewed 29 September 2016

We were traveling with another couple and had booked this Best Western, or so we thought. My friend and I booked them from my computer. I booked the Best Western room and when she did her reservation, unknown to us, the sight had jumped to Hamilton Inn Select, just down the street. Imagine our surprise when I had a room...

We stayed 2 nights in early October 2016, while on a Fall trip. I've read a few reviews that considered the rooms dated or old fashioned but I did not find that to be the case at all. The rooms are decorated more in a "traditional" décor, rather than modern, which I found refreshing, lending to a more warm and...

Service and the rooms/view were awesome. Breakfast was great. Looking forward to staying there again. We had a room with a balcony on the beach the view and beach were wonderful. Everything we wanted to do was within walking distance, great restaurants within walking distance.

This is a wonderful hotel - be careful using the Mackinaw hotel booking site, they can change you to a different hotel. The area has a lot to offer and the hotel is in a perfect place to enjoy many attractions.

This is an average hotel. We stayed here with our 5 and 6 year olds. Those with children may like the idea that they have access to other water parks other than the pool! We loved doing that :) The breakfast is the normal complementary breakfast with eggs, sausage, biscuits, gravy, waffles, cereal, donuts, bagels, etc. Take some fresh fruit...

Had a lakeside room, eastern exposure 4th floor, nice view on to sunrise on lake. Wonderful layout for breakfast in large spacious room. Rooms were nicely furnished, comfortable bed and sitting area. Had a small balcony so could leave door open and hear the waves overnight

A lovely and friendly staff. This place met all of our needs and it was in the heart of town. Very quaint and comfortable. We actually stayed there at the end of September in 2015. the weather was frightfully cold, but Mackinaw was absolutely gorgeous. People are super helpful and friendly.

The hotel was very clean and the room appeared to be recently updated. View of the lake was great. Renovations appeared to be ongoing. Staff was very friendly and helpful. The breakfast buffet had a nice variety.

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...
