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.

This is a pretty nice boutique hotel in downtown St. Joseph. It's probably not quite like something you would find in New York, Chicago or LA, but it is a really nice surprise for a smaller town and the best hotel anywhere in the area. The hotel is situated close to Lake Michigan. You can see the lake from the... More

We really enjoyed a great 3 night stay at the Boulevard. We were checked in quickly and even offered a sugar cookie upon checkin. The room was clean, could be updated, but the decor is probably only 10 years old. The room was spacious. The bathroom was small, but I prefer a larger room to a larger bathroom. The fridge... More

I grew up in the Benton Harbor/St Joe area and lived here when this hotel was built, but never set foot in till last month. For a private hotel (non chain) it was aged well and they have taken the upmost care in updating the rooms along the way. We enjoyed the suite rooms that gave us the extra room... More

We've stayed at this hotel many times (over 2 dozen nights over past two years). The rooms are clean and comfortable; beds comfortable, coffee maker (Keurig) in room). Refrigerator, microwave in room. Large, separate seating area is great if you have visitors or spend a lot of time in your room. Rooms are quiet and lake view rooms are great!... More

I was out here for work and it was probably one of the better options for the area. It's a nice location - no designated parking for the hotel which is fine in the winter but is difficult during the nice months. The entrance is annoying as there are double doors or a revolving door and with suitcases... Not good.... More

The Boulevard Inn is an older hotel in St. Joseph, Michigan, that sits on the lake. It's an all suite hotel, with plenty of room for business travelers and small families. It's cozy and quaint, with great food in the restaurant and some really good beers on tap if you're into that sort of thing (try the Chubby Squirrel!). The... More

Was there on business and was underwhelmed by the property and guest service. My flight was delayed and I asked for a late checkout. Even after talking to a manager, they gave me 12:00 which was pretty shocking. While they say they were sold out, one guest will certainly not stop housekeeping from turning over the rooms before 3:00. Indeed,... More

I will keep this review short, if you are ever staying in the area, go ahead and try out this hotel. It is very charming and located a block away from Lake Michigan. The rooms are clean and the staff was very attentive. The group I traveled with all would like to return and visit when the weather is better... More

This place is awesome! Cozy but Classic. I have bad allergies and I usually have issues with hotel rooms being dusty/moldy. This place was clean top to bottom. Beds and rooms were super comfy. Would recommend to anyway in the area.
