We were looking for a nice, clean and inexpensive place to stay so we could visit Mackinac Island. We sure found it here. Carol, the owner couldn't have been nicer. The room was clean and comfortable with a nice view of the lake. We have recommended The Tradewinds to lots of our friends. We will definitely be back..

hard to find this kind of host these days. Carol and Mike are just what the doctor ordered when he said get some rest and let go of that stress. Stayed three days and that was not enough. Very clean and spacious rooms. They must have many repeat customers because there is a good group of folks sharing the events... More

After dealing with very unpleasant staffers at a chain hotel, we saw the reviews for the Tradewinds. Loved the room styling. Loved the comfortable beds. Loved Carol, the proprietor. Loved the convenient location. Do yourselves a favor and stay at this shining gem in St. Ignace. We are returning next month!

Do yourself a favor and drive right past all of the chain motels in downtown St Ignace. Just beyond the hospital and Bessie's Pasties is the Tradewinds. You will be greeted by Carol who is the friendliest person you will ever meet. She will give you recommendations for dinner- let you play with her dog Maggie and then give you... More

Our plans were to stay two nights in the area, and we spent the first night across the bridge in the lower peninsula at the Comfort Inn in Mackinaw City. I was very highly unimpressed and annoyed by the Comfort Inn and their lack of advertised amenities. We decided on the next day to look across the Straits in St.... More

This is a real throw back to the late 60's motel. It no doubt needs updating but it has that Up north charm that I kind of enjoyed. The beds are small double beds...from the 60's and so is everything else. A large picture window with high beam ceilings and that "up north" smell makes up for the lack of... More

Three couples in three rooms stayed at the Tradewinds Motel on the start of our two-week vacation in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Carol, the owner, greeted us warmly and accommodated our desires regarding room choices. She was a constant presence whenever we needed anything from extra pillows to shuttle to the casino. Because she was ever vigilant, we were... More
