We stay here twice a year, spring and fall. We always enjoy our stay here, close to the crossings and the Breakfast buffet never lets us down. The pool is always clean and the staff is very friendly. Our best deals have always been over the intrnet.

This is a very nice inn.Our room was on the lower floor steps away from the water. The room was very clean and tidy. The beds were comfortable. I will stay here again if I come this way. We were given coupons to use at nearby resturants and stores. This inn is only a few blocks from main street Mackinaw...

This is a beautiful hotel. The location is perfect and it's easy to get to the ferry to Mackinaw Island. The staff was very friendly and helpful with directions and places to eat. Janet and Marie made our room clean and provided everything we needed. Breakfast was excellent, with several choices and the hostess was very friendly. The weather was...

Great location for choice of ferries. Nice to see the lake from our 2nd story sliding glass door. Staff was helpful and polite. We can always depend on Best Western for top quality and comfortable beds.

If you're going to visit the island, or maybe the fudge shops in the city as you're getting ready to travel over the great Mackinaw Bridge and explore St. Ignace or Pictured Rocks...this is a nice place to plant your feet for a night or two. It's on the southern end of town and there's no view of the bridge...

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,...
