All rooms have an outstanding view of the lake. Beds were very firm, I slept like a baby! It was pretty hot during our stay, but the room air conditioning worked great. Other reviewers complained about the WiFi, but I think those complaints were overblown. Worked great for me, even extended down to the shore. Good continental breakfast.

Positives: Clean room, great view. When the toilet was plugged, they came to fix it within 5 minutes. Negatives: Walls are very thin( whenever the room next to us flushed their toilet we could hear it in our room) Breakfast area was very congested.The wall between the two rooms should be taken down to make more room for people to...

Wonderful place to stay. The front desk staff was very friendly and the hotel was very calm and quiet. A 5 minute drive from the marina and the ferries to Mackinac Island. Very close to many restaurants. The continental breakfast has good variety.

Bavarian Haus is very nice motel and provided very clean rooms and comfortable bed. View of Lake Huron and mackinaw island was excellent. There is limited beachfront but it seems to be fairly standard for this area of the lake. Indoor pool was adequate but nothing special.....kids seemed to enjoy it. Several area restaurants were excellent.

Nice feature was being on the water. View was outstanding. It is in a very quiet area of the strip. Outdoor lawn with firepits, swingset and chairs was nice. Balcony and a window that opened was great. Breakfast wasn't what we liked but would but it was ok for the basics. There are plenty of restaurants nearby.

Stayed here July 20th and 21st. This motel is a good value for the money. Rooms were clean and beds were comfortable. Breakfast was what you usually get at motels. Had sausage and biscuits and gravy. They didn't have eggs. Front desk was very helpful. I could not find the elevator. They need to provide maps.

This hotel is a bit further from the rest of the stuff in St. Ignace, but it has a great view and giant lawn with a playset and volleyball court. The hotel is very long and on several different levels, so it's a bit confusing at first, but we found our way. The rooms are pretty old. Ours was clean... More

The hotel is very clean, the beds are hard as a rock and the walls are paper thin. Our first night we listened to a gentleman snore all night. And every time some leaves their rooms the doors slam so loud. The people next floor up flush their toilet and it sounds like it's in your room. Beautiful views... Housekeeping... More

I can't say enough wonderful things about this hotel. The staff was wonderful, accommodating and kind. The mackinac island facing rooms are a little dated but cozy, clean and affordable. The lawn is clean and free of birds! Amazing. We didn't swim but had a look at the pool/hot tub & sauna and it all looked really clean and we'll... More

Sorry about the Wi-Fi, it can get tricky to establish a good connection around this area. But I'm glad that didn't stop you from enjoying your stay, though. It sounds like you felt quite comfortable at our cozy spot, and I look forward to welcoming you back! All the best, Howard Cole, Owner More

We stayed here on our way to pictured rocks. The hotel was clean. I had to leave my room for internet WiFi. The view was excellent. The bed was comfortable. Breakfast was standard fare for what I expect from a "hot" breakfast at most hotels that serve breakfast of this variety.
