I would stay here again. Close to ferry. We could have walked to the ferry or taken their shuttle. Hotel check in staff very helpful. Breakfast was very good. Clean room and bathroom. You can walk to the fort from the hotel.

Very tired-looking hotel, inside and out. Was not worth the price paid during Lilac Festival weekend. Should have stayed on Mackinac Island for similar cost. Breakfast just average, canned fruit, tough scrambled eggs, salty sausages. Room decor right out of the 80's or ?? On...More

Very nice place to stay: clean, right on the water, courteous staff, and well stocked breakfast bar. We booked our room through Mackinac city chamber of tourism and got a great rate as well. Close to everything.

There are many hotels to choose from in this area. We're glad we chose the Best Western plus Dockside Waterfront Inn. The swimming pool was warm unlike others. And hot tub clean. The family enjoyed both. The room was inviting and very clean(even the corners)....More

Not pleased. Some things were broke. Some of the staff was rude. Breakfast got cold quick. Little things but they add up. It rained and there was a big puddle of water in front of our door. No paper in the lobby.

I agree with Sandy D. I, too, do not understand why you think you might be redirected to another hotel. I went directly to the Best Western web-site and specifically chose the BW Plus Dockside Waterfront in Mackinaw City... More
