Had enough corporate cookie-cutter hotel stays for a while? The Boulevard offers a refreshing change that grows on you rather than boring you like many (perfectly good) chains. Set right on beautiful Lake Michigan, the hotel features unusually spacious rooms. The furnishings, while not at all lavish, are pleasant. Rooms are quiet (you don't have to listen to every word...

My husband and I came to St. Joe for a few days and brought our 17-month-old daughter. I booked the Boulevard Inn even though it’s a little pricey because it was directly across the street from the public beach and park. The location is AWESOME! Just a short walk down the stairs/ramp to the park with a big fountain/splash pad,... More

Originally from St. Joseph and stayed at the Boulevard 8 years ago the first few nights I lived there. The hotel has changed....and for the better! The rooms include two TVs (in the bedroom and sitting room)...modern furniture and clean bathrooms. Also, a great program to get dining credit in lieu of new towels/cleaning. Nothing could be better about this... More

Right in the downtown area with a great view of the lake. The breakfast which consisted of eggs, waffles, yogurt, and breakfast potatoes was included each day and the room had a great view of the lighthouse. There was a craft sale right across from hotel on the Saturday when we stayed there. The beach was just across the street.... More

While this is a beautiful hotel with an excellent location, it was not worth the price that we paid for our daughter's wedding weekend. The air conditioner did not work and no one came to look at it until we were all in the suite, trying to get ready. There was no hairdryer! Thank goodness I tossed mine in at... More

An incredible view of Lake Michigan and the lighthouse from rooms on the west side. Best location in the area. There are a few nicer hotels - not in downtown St. Joseph but within a ten minute drive (e.g., Hilton Garden Inn, The Inn at Harbor Shores) but they can't compete with the Boulevard's location - steps from the beach,...

We were on our way to visit my son, who lives in Grand Rapids and stopped at the visitor center. We had a day to enjoy before we were expected, and it happened to be my birthday. We were looking for a restaurant on the lake to have a nice dinner and watch the sunset on lake Michigan. The Bistro... More

My son and I stayed at the Boulevard Inn for a 1 night get-away from the Chicago area. We usually only stay at Marriotts and Sheratons but I picked this hotel because of its location. The room and the hotel itself was very clean. The breakfast was pretty straightforward. Service was good. The hotel in in the downtown area, so... More

The Boulevard Inn was a pretty nice surprise at St Joe's downtown area. Rooms were clean, spacious, and quiet. If you are lucky to stay in the front rooms you will have a beautiful view of the lake, specially in summer time! The hotel is close to a number of restaurants and local attractions. I stayed there for around 3... More

Stayed here while attending Ice Magic. Rooms are very clean, spacious, and quiet. Beautiful view of frozen lake from west side of hotel. Within walking distance of many small restaurants, shops, and beach. Have never written a hotel review before but we had such a great experience here, would recommend to anyone needing a hotel while in St. Joe.
