    Great hotel, price and best breakfast anywhere. Even for people eating plant base diets. Something for everyone. Pool and hot tub are clean and enjoyable. Large area for talking inside atrium with fireplace if needed.

    We love Dockside! Each time we have vacationed in Mackinaw City over the past 20 years, we have chosen Dockside. It is within walking distance to most everything. The staff is always friendly and helpful. The rooms are always super clean!
