When we arrived our room was not able to acccomodate our family. The staff was extremely helpful and called other hotels for availability. They continued until they found one that meant our needs. They were crazy busy at the time and couldn't be nicer and more helpful, we so appreciate it!

We were in town for a friend's destination wedding and this was one of their hotel recommendations. After hearing about wedding guests' awful experiences at other local hotels that they paid the same rate for, we were SO glad we chose to stay here. This hotel is nice, clean and comfortable. All of the staff was very friendly and helpful.... More

Very pretty house, cute rooms, decorated nicely. Great homemade breakfast in a beautiful park. We arrived late but the owner was friendly and still waiting for us. Will definitely go back if I'm in the area. The location was great, between Death Valley and Yosemite.

This was our second stay at this hotel and I think we actually ended up in the same room we had 3 years ago. Room 235 is near the back of the hotel with a nice balcony overlooking the courtyard and a small view of the lake. This hotel is actually across the street from the lake, but a quick... More

We had a great 4th of July weekend at this hotel. The views were great but the interior of the rooms needed updating. The views to lake Michigan were amazing. The rooms were pricey and the photos did not show that there is a 90 foot drop off before Lake Michigan so you have to drive a mile to the... More

The hotel is located only about a mile from downtown, very convenient. The hotel is clean, and the family suite is HUGE! I think it was the biggest hotel room I've ever stayed in. Two double beds (comfortable), a pull out couch and bunk beds. The hotel isn't fancy, but certainly good for a family get away. Typical buffet breakfast... More

The staff at holiday inn express at St Joseph was wonderful. The rooms were clean. The pool was nice (one day it had too much chlorine), but the kids loved it because the lake was way too cold to swim in. It is close to chain restaurants if that is your style on vacation. However it is not within walking... More

If you are looking for hotel to get a break from a long and exhausting drive, or simply visiting St. Joseph, this Holiday Inn Express is an absolute must to stay in. Excellent, new property with spacious rooms and very comfortable beds. Fast internet. No freeway noise and good breakfast. Plenty of restaurants nearby. A+
