We have stayed at this hotel on past vacations, it is supurb in every way. That is why we choose to stay there again on this trip. Everything is great right down to the animals made from hand towels, the staff was very hospitable and attended to our needs, the breakfast was delish, our three grandchildren enjoyed the beach and pool. We will return again soon.

Nice facilities and good view of Lake Huron. I know you had no control of this, but we were disappointed in the town not having more services available to visitors and a lack of concern about it. I needed some medicine for my wife and had to drive across the long bridge to seek it only to find the drug store closed. I then went 25 miles south to fine no place open there. Finally getting some medicine form a convenience store in another town. Wayne Cooksey Auburn, Alabama

I stayed at this property in early May, 2014 with my wife and my elderly parents. I ended up booking this particular property over the phone on the day of our stay. Although I had seen a price of $159 for each night for the XL Suite with 1 king bed, 2 queen beds, and a lakefront view using my AAA membership, as I was booking this hotel on the day of travels and they were empty, I negotiated the rate to $109 for the night (the so-called manager's special :)). My guess is that it may have been possible to negotiate the price down even a bit further. I would characterize our stay at the hotel as very good. My parents were quite happy with the room the moment we walked in because of the amount of space and the picture frames on the walls. I had requested a microwave when making my reservation and the hotel staff were nice to have provided two microwaves - one in each of the rooms. Although we came in too late to see the sunset from our room (one of my regrets), I still enjoyed the view of the lake the next morning and wished I had a chance to stay there for longer. All of us also tried out the hot breakfast option. Although there were a reasonably large number of items available on the menu which left us quite full, I would not describe the items as being of the highest quality. The sausage patties were typical of frozen patties and my wife did not end up finishing the two she had taken on her plate. The breakfast bar also had a waffle maker and so in addition to scrambled eggs, biscuits and gravy, and sausage patties, one could also make waffles. Last but not the least, all the receptionists that we encountered at the property were quite friendly. On our way out, I ended up booking Shepler's Ferry tickets to Mackinac Island through the hotel front desk. The prices were the best of all I could find ($19.95 per adult + tax) and trust me, I had looked into how to get the best prices for the ferries a fair bit. This was the first year that the hotel had started selling the ferry tickets for the benefit of their customers, and although there was some learning along the way for them, they were quite helpful and when faced with some issues, they called up the ferry for us and resolved it. There are no real downsides to this property other than the fact that this place still seems quite a bit like a motel and not a fancy hotel. The carpets in the hallway are quite old and the ramp area that leads up to the elevators looks quite sad and in need of perhaps a fresh coat of paint. The bathroom also did not have a sink / wash basin within it and so if one had to wash one's hands, then one would have to step out of the bathroom and use the wash basin outside of the bathroom. All in all, I found this to be a great value for the money which I would not hesitate booking again if I were in the area. And if it were a low season, I might again try booking the hotel by phone and seeing if I could get a lower price than one available online or through my AAA membership.

The rooms were clean and nice. Great room service. I lost my boat tickets in the windy night of check in and had to purchase another set of five at the boat dock but one of the room attendents found them in the parking lot. Could not get reimbursed but they are good for next year. Hopefully we will use them next year. Did not feel like they were closing that weekend. Good trip. Thanks

Nice room, but very cold when we arrived, late in the evening. Did warm up after we turned on the heat - but chilly beginning for a stay that was basically a sleeping place. Would have liked some body lotion as room amenity. Good breakfast. Good value hotel.

enjoyed our stay in MacKinaw. Just wished it did'nt rain on the day we went to the island. The room was great! However,we would have rather had a room on one of the upper floors to enjoy the view better. Also, some of the places we wanted to visit were closed due to being late in the season. Maybe next time. We enjoyed the MacKinaw Bridge,especially going over it. What a marvel. Enjoyed the fall foilage of your state also. Forgot to get a postcard of our hotel.

The room was great and the view of the lake was even better,but we had to go outside across a parking lot to swim in the pool or eat breakfast(which also involved a long outdoor flight of stairs as well). Small parking lot made it so you couldn't park near your room. The breakfast was included and adequate. No other meals are available. Room service was very good. The hot water handle came off of the jacuzzi.The highlight was the fireworks display on the lake that we could see from our balcony.

It was actually better than good. The Best Western Dockside was very clean and comfortable. Quiet as well. The reason I couldn't give it an Outstanding is because to use the pool you had to go outside to get to it. Not the best option in cooler weather. Other than that, excellent!
