Some of the motels in Mackinaw City are closed in October, but the BW is open and is CHEAP for a 4+ star motel. Room rates are about $59-$79 and full hot breakfast is included. Motel is within walking distance to all boats and downtown.

My husband and I highly recommend this hotel. The room was great - large with a beautiful view of Lake Huron. Bed and pillows were very comfortable, housekeeping very detailed. Good internet reception in room. Front desk was friendly and informative. We will stay here again on our next trip to Mackinaw City.

So many excellent features at a great price! Our first fall trip there as we usually go in the summer. Room was amazing with a spectacular view. Never had to notify the office of any concerns. Breakfast bar had something for everyone and was always stocked. Staff keep breakfast room clean and organized. Pool and hot tub very clean and...

My wife and I were very impressed with the room and the beds that we had at the price we were able to get it for. I would stay here again but I would do it in the summer instead of the fall as the breakfast room was too cold. Other than that the breakfast was good.

We have been going to Mackinaw for a few days at a time for about ten years and now primarily go in the fall. Cannot beat the price, location and cleanliness of the Best Western Dockside in Mackinaw. We switched to the Best Western about 3 years ago. The heater was awesome as the temperature dropped to below 40 degrees....

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...
