We've stayed here several times over the last few years and it is always an enjoyable experience. The location is great - on a bluff over Lake Superior with a view of Pictured Rocks and Grand Island. The rooms are good size and comfortable. The pool area is wonderful with a walk-in pool, hot tub and sauna. They have a... More

I have to give a shout out to Gayle at the front desk. We arrived during a snow storm without reservations, and completely unfamiliar with the area. She helped with lodging arrangements, and during our stay gave us advice about restaurants as well as going to the ice caves at Eben and at Grand Island. The facility was very clean.... More

Clean and comfortable room at a reasonable winter rate - nice to have a choice of firm or soft pillows. Good wi-fi, plenty of breakfast choices. The only downside is the parking. We unloaded our bags near the door, then had to park in the lower lot and walk up the snow-covered and very slippery wooden steps, which was not... More

Well worth it! Clean room and friendly staff. If traveling in winter, pack your boot grippers, they did not have the parking lot or steps to the front entrance shoveled or free from ice. Other than that, rooms were clean and very comfortable. Spectacular views of Grand Island.

Given that we are two downstaters and this hotel is currently making the majority of its winter time profits from snow mobile enthusiasts, its no wonder they cater to them, I mean, who could blame them, the economy isn't exactly booming in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. We pulled in close to 1am last night and the lady told us... More

Took a quick trip after Christmas up to snowshoe at Pictured Rocks and choose the Holiday Inn Express as the place to stay. They have big rooms that include a mini refigerator and microwave which was nice to have since we brought leftovers from Christmas dinner to heat up and eat. The room was spacious and warm when we got... More

I stayed at this hotel during an autumn roadtrip vacation with my son to do some photography. The decor is lodge-like and homey. They have huge photographs from local photographers of the Pictured Rocks...breathtakingly beautiful. The staff was polite, but busy, as we checked in for our one night stay. We didn't get much "personal" attention. The room was clean... More

We stayed here while doing a trip all around Lake Superior. The view is just fantastic. Be aware that the restaurant is just a breakfast bar, so not open in the evenings. We ate at the DogPatch (bizarre name!) in town which was very good. Top grade filet mignon on special @ $19.95 - unbelievable quality and value. Downsides? Well... More

Dear ToodleooCaribou, Thank you for taking the time to share your stay experiences as all feedback is very much appreciated. The Dogpatch got it's name from the 'Li'l Abner' comic strip from the mid 1900's so it is pretty unique for a Restaurant theme. We do have an elevator in the middle of our hotel and steps on each end... More
