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.

We're right on the beach of Lake Huron, so it's just a few steps to the water from your Mackinaw City hotel.
