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.

Reviewed 28 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...

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...

"Nice clean and wonderful breakfast included in our stay. Close to local areas to eat. Rooms nice big and clean. My granddaughter enjoyed the indoor pool as it was getting colder outside for our stay. Highly recommended.

We arrived rather late so missed the view of the lake in the daylight until the next morning. The staff were very friendly and greeted us with enthusiasm. There is only one elevator and it is centrally located so if your room is at either end, it is a bit of a walk if you need the elevator (there are...

Recently stayed here on the last night of the season. It was just as nice as the last time we stayed. You would have never know it was the last night. The room (105) was clean, neat and in good repair. The screen slider stuck, but that was to be expected with the sand from the summer season in the...
