Had a very good stay here while in Mackinaw City. Lobby is a bit small but is nicely done up and front desk staff pleasant and accommodating...ie: providing us with Star Line Ferry tickets to Mackinac Island and arranging for the ferry shuttle to pick us up at the hotel. Our king bed room on the 4th floor facing the...

We had room 103. Down a couple of steps and the sliding glass doors opened up on the beach. Great room, great view, convenient to the ferry. Shepler's ferry will pick you and return you to your hotel. One of the best hotels we have ever stayed in. We got a rate of $89 plus 9.79 tax. Great rate out...

We arrived to a friendly and helpful staff. The rooms were great and location can't be beat. It is located in the middle of the main street running through town. We were very pleased and would visit again.

I don't appreciate walking into a business and there are five women speaking a different language to each other....then they continue to do it while we stand there! Up North Jamaica? Needless to say we won't be staying there again.

Conveniently located, friendly atmosphere, no hassle check-in and out, immaculate and very large rooms. A very pleasant and surprisingly affordable place to spend a night or a week! We were a party of 7 so were given 2 contiguous rooms, with 2 double beds that were very comfortable and smelled like brand new. The front desk personnel very laid back...

I would recommend staying here for the convenience to local attractions, shops and ferry boats to Mackinac Island. We had rooms with lake views and the sunrise each morning is beautiful over the lake. I would stay here again.

The room was right on the lake with a small patio and only a few steps to the beach. They had lounge chairs on the beach and the view was gorgeous. The room was modern and newer with a great Jacuzzi. The room was spacious and the tv was large.

We needed a hotel after a color tour and came across this Best Western. At the price we paid - VERY reasonable - we were expecting a normal Best Western. Wrong. This is right on Lake Michigan with a tremendous view. We checked the price for the weekend and it was in excess of $300! A VERY nice room overlooking...
