DO NOT stay across the street in one of the two overflow buildings!! I know Washington Island is rustic, and we made last minute reservations but decided to give it a try. Our building was old, dated, dirty and actually scary looking. The room smelled stale and musty, all night. No air. Spider living happily in a web in the... More

We stayed at Findlay's Holiday Inn at the main lodge in late July 2015, and were very pleased with our decision. There are limited lodging options on Washington Island, and you don't come here to stay in a luxury 5 star hotel so it doesn't seem fair for other reviewers to rate this establishment poorly. Our room was on the... More

We were stuck in Holiday Too for three nights. We left after two nights and don't care if we get our money back for the third night or not. Rustic is not the word. It was flthy. We are currently washing everything we had in the room in hot water. The room was dirty. Green/blue mold on the sink faucets.... More

Their website wasn't up and running when I booked, but was under the impression is was an actual Holiday Inn. It was not. Our room was wide open when we came in, there was brown stains on the sheets, water dripping from the faucet in the shower, dead spiders on the bathroom floor, and we couldn't even open the window...

It was not bad, but a bit pricey for what you get. The moldy shower curtain should have been changed. :( It was quiet and the owners were friendly. The Holiday too building looks like an old general store. A bit creepy. We stayed in a water view room and bargained on the price.

My wife and I made the trip to Washington Island for a long weekend via motorcycle . After a long day on the bike and the ferry we arrived to a warm welcome by the owner. We stayed at the Holiday Inn Rm 12 . A very aromatic room . Crisp clean . As we left to take a tour... More

Stayed in the Holiday Too across from the Inn. I'd rather had a tent and a sleeping bag as I was sure we would need to find a cream the next day to stop the itching. Besides being outdated the room smelled of mildew, carpet was dirty, sink had a rust spot, the door did not close correctly and my... More

as a washington island tourist, "outdated' or "rustic" accommodations will be typical. businesses have 3 summer months to generate revenue... considering this, findlay's delivers a decent room (only $70!) and delicious breakfast (not complimentary) with friendly service. like the island residents, the owners are generous and hospitable.

Stayed in the Holiday Too across from the "Holiday Inn." The building takes rustic to a new level...the side entrance door is rotting off the hinges, not only doesn't lock, but doesn't come close to shutting. It looked like they quit in the middle of outside spring cleanup. The rake was left laying in a pile of leaves and it... More

I had read previous reviews, but thought that at this point in time, the owners would have made positive steps. The good news: very good food in their lovely dining room; yard and view were pleasing to the eye; the water from the tap tasted very good. But....the bad news: the musty, moldy smell almost had us cancel and go... More
