We had stayed in St. Ignace a few years ago at the Best Western. Very unfortunately, I couldn't remember its name so we booked here. It was a big disappointment. To say the least, we wish we had not stayed at the Bavarian. The room was terribly worn down. Decor was awful--very tacky. We couldn't use the 'balcony' since there... More

We stopped by this hotel after our first choice was full. ( duh, I thought how could they be full, major car show was answer..lol) This hotel was a great value at just about about a hundred dollars a night. Rooms were very clean, and very, very big, I really was shocked at how big, lots of extra room for... More

I had reserved a room with two beds for two adults. A third person came with us at the last minute. During check-in I asked to change the reservation to three and requested a roll away bed. The extra charge was to be $11.50 which was acceptable to us, but the person at the front desk asked us if we... More

I'm so glad that we could upgrade you to a bigger room and get you all settled in! We always want our guests to have a truly memorable experience, so it was our pleasure. You can't beat that lake view either, right? I'm sorry to hear that the continental breakfast didn't hit he spot, though. If you have any additional... More

The young men at the front desk were very helpful and check in was quite easy even though they were training a new person. Nice view of the lake and Mackinaw Island. Spacious room and very clean. Would stay here again.

A bit rundown. Playground equipment unsafe. Pool so murky that a child could be on the bottom and never be seen. Overall the place worked but we don't need to stay here again. We will try another hotel with a higher rating.

Our room was spacious. Very clean without the chemical smell. Amazing view of Lake Huron with a patio out back. Huge bathtub/jacuzzi tub big enough for two! Nice TV. Very comfortable bed. Continental breakfast was sort of odd but suitable. Biscuits were not quite thawed but warm enough. Sausage gravy in a croxkpot. There was a mother/daughter? team serving/bickering and... More

Our first time staying anywhere in the state of Michigan and it was a very good experience. I had considered staying in Mackinaw City but am very glad we went to Bavarian Haus in Saint Ignace instead. This hotel was very nice and up close to the lake with a wonderful view. There was breakfast every morning and they have... More

Let's start by saying that, when we checked in, the young man at the front desk was so helpful and nice! We asked about a local restaurant and not only did he tell us where to find it, he searched for a menu as well. He told us where to find our room and how breakfast worked. Our room was... More

We stayed here several years back when it was a Days Inn. It was an excellent place to stay then and just as nice now! The rooms are big, clean and the view is fantastic! Very quiet. Enjoyed watching the owners dog play in the lake for hours on end. Black Lab Rosie. Staff is very attentive to our needs.... More
