Hotel Overview

TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence Badge

Going off the grid doesn't mean you have to be miles away from civilization when you select this incredible Mackinaw City hotel.

Show More / Less

Best Western Mackinaw City redefined what a "resort beach property" really means. We're close to Pellston Airport but also right on the beach. Sashay from your perfect spot on the beach to the airport in time to catch that early flight. We're also close to downtown shopping and dining if you're up for painting the town red or you need to pick up some souvenirs.

This Mackinaw City hotel has everything travelers need to feel right at home. We're close to I-75 and Mackinaw Bridge, so zipping around town or checking out other local beaches is a breeze. We're also close to the ferry docks if a romantic cruise is on the agenda.

Best Western Plus Dockside Waterfront Inn blends comfort and quality with a great low price. Mackinaw Island is an oasis near the city. Car shows, beer and wine festivals, and other festivals of all types are just a few of the events that draw crowds from around the country. You'll feel right at home at this Mackinaw City hotel no matter what you're in town for.

We're right on the beach of Lake Huron, so it's just a few steps to the water from your Mackinaw City hotel. Business meetings happen here, but even those guests here on business are in the mood to check out the sights. Access to waterparks make this region particularly popular for families. Pirates Adventure, Castaway, Emerald Cove, and Thunder Falls are calling your name.

Best Western Mackinaw City also dishes up a delicious, complimentary breakfast. Dig into platefuls of piping hot waffles and eggs, stacks of sweet pastries, fresh fruits, hot and cold cereals and yogurt. Complete your meal with 100% Arabica coffee and chilled juices.

Reserve your next stay with Best Western Plus Dockside Waterfront Inn for a perfect trip!
