Mid-week vacation stayed 3 nights. Jim & Kayla very welcoming and let us check out rooms before purchase. Light continental breakfast every morning with coffee early. Very affordable for off the island experience. Nice to come back to a quieter area after a day of sightseeing on Mackinac. 1 short set of stairs to first floor rooms, 1 full set... More

We stayed here for a long weekend because we were attending a friends wedding. It was listed as a Bed and Breakfast, but all we had was a breakfast of toast, bagels, cereal, lots of carbs and no protein or fruit. They were accommodating of our group of 7, by letting us hang out in the breakfast area or entry... More

We stayed at the Boardwalk Inn about ten years ago and really enjoyed our stay. We chose to repeat. This stay was a bit disappointing. The room was clean. But it was the little things that were missing. One hand towel in the bathroom. No tissues. That chair cushions were completely broken down. The inn is tired...

I wanted to like this place, really! But TVs from 1980 with bad reception, horrible cold Walmart bagels, cereal, and English muffins for breakfast I must say it needs to try harder. Maybe paint the place too? I'll spend more but stay elsewhere next time.

I've been bringing my tour groups to Boardwalk Inn for 3 years now, and have had excellent service from owners Kayla and Jim. The Inn is charming and the attractions close by are good for my guests. Kayla and Jim put their best effort into keeping the property up, and they've always been ready to help with our special requests.... More

We've been staying at the Boardwalk Inn for years and always enjoy going back. Comfy, adorable rooms. The owners are so friendly and inviting. We never want to leave. It's in a great location as well.

Great customer service, great cost, so clean and a great fireworks show over the water from our hotel room! We will definitely be coming back! Thanks for contributing to our great memories of our stay in St. Ignace and the Island!!!

This was our second visit to this St. Ignace B&B overlooking Lake Huron and Mackinac Island. This stay did not measure up to our first. The breakfasts are very basic: cereal, instant oatmeal and a little fruit. Rooms are a bit tired. It's cleanliness merits an addiitonal half rating: overall 3.5. It's also well priced, but market condition have resulted... More

We were looking for a hotel that was a different your regular big chain hotel. This Inn meet all our expectations and exceeding them! The building is beautifully decorated and well-maintained. The owners/staff are very friendly. The accommodations were clean, and beautiful. Great experience! Would definitely recommend to friends and will return on our next trip through St. Ignace.

We spent 2 nights here, before and after the Mackinac Bridge Walk on Labor Day. The owners were very nice. I loved that they left an old book at our door on our first night. The rooms are on the 3rd floor, so be prepared to take a few flights up. Our room was too close to the road, so... More
