The room was large and clean. It was ready when we arrived. We had easy checkout after the large free breakfast. We also had discounted ferry tickets to the island and the motel is very close to the ferry dock. The motel had a ferry schedule ready for us.

Room Tip: Our room was poolside.

The Dockside Waterfront Inn in Mackinaw MI is exceptional. The entire staff and the hotel are pleasant and helpful. The Inn has everything I needed I enjoyed the pool and the breakfast was great. The breakfast area had a splendid view of the area, being on the third floor.

This is a good clean hotel with great continental breakfast and very friendly staff. The only downfall is the mosquito looking black flies. We killed at least 4 dozen in our room and aboit a dozen more the following morning. This is not the hotels fault but keeping the doors closed while cleaning rooms would help. We declined any room service to keep the bugs out for our 3 night stay. There was a mini fridge in the room, beds were super comfy and we had a lakeside view. In the evenings and morning bugs were worst so we enjoyed playing on the beach in the warmth or breeze so they didn't bother us. There were piles of them under the outdoor lighting everyday. You can catch a shuttle to the ferry parking to Mackinac Island from the hotel and also buy your tickets in advance with a discount. If you buy dvance ferry tickets be sure to wait in line at the docks to get the boarding tickets! We didn't know this and even though we were super early ended up being last to board since I had to run back and get tickets then return to the boat. We really enjoyed this hotel but would probably not spend extra to stay lakeside in future since we were not able to fully enjoy it.

Stayed: May 2018

This is a very nice hotel. They have a good breakfast. Clean and comfortable room but the pillows could be a little firmer. It is within walking distance of local restaurants and ferry to Mackinaw Island.

Great location, Great views, very friendly and polite staff at check-in/out, updated and very clean rooms, kids had fun in the pool and they appreciated how warm the water was, decent selection of food at breakfast, but the food quality was so-so.
