    Very happy with the hotel and staff. The only downside was our room on the second floor opened out to the pool, on the main floor, which made it very dark in the room. Breakfast was great, and I would highly recommend this hotel.

    Great breakfast and pool / hot tub room. Rooms are well setup, clean and comfortable. We have stayed at the Best Western Dockside several years in a row for the Zoo-de-mack bike ride and have never been disappointed.

    Hi, Lisa. What would you like to know about this accommodation? How can I be assured that I will get this hotel and not be redirected to another hotel?

    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

    As far as checking in under 21, I don't know. A simple call via there 800# would get you the answer.

    So let me get this story straight! Your reservations we cancelled because of a problem with Your credit card and Was Not Their Fault! They tried to contact you to correct this and you didn't give them a phone number they could reach you at and Was Not Their Fault again! Then when you finally arrived they didn't have a room for you but found your accommodations at another hotel and You Gave Them One Star through no fault of theirs. You seem to be a difficult person to please, I know one thing though and that's you owe them an apology for your bad review rating and a correction of that review if possible. It seems to me that if I were rating you as a reviewer I might give you only One Star.
