We stayed on 9/15-9/18 which is near the end of the tourist season for the city.
Plus's: Rooms were clean and well appointed (fridge, TV, nice overall). Breakfast was excellent, and pool/jacuzzi was a nice amenity. Were allowed to use the breakfast room for a get together one evening.
I know weddings are a pain in the rear, but my new wife and I booked multiple rooms for multiple nights and were paying for it ourselves for out of town guests. The front desk was continuously confused about what to do when people arrived (give them their room key?????). We couldn't get the room keys to distribute before they arrived. The hotel was somewhat empty, but rooms weren't ready at 2PM (granted check in was at 3PM) even though ample information/requests were given. NUMEROUS phone calls to verify reservations were fouled up and panic inducing. The end of the tourist season seemed to coincide with the lackadaisical service.
Also, all of the chain hotels are run by the same management group in the off-season. We booked in May (just before the tourist season started), and learned that negotiating (needed 10 rooms for 2 nights, plus a few more for a 3rd night) was somewhat fruitless. These hoteliers seem to know that they have a monopoly, and the independents around there have to overcharge to keep up, it seems.
Would strongly recommend St. Ignace for staying at. Nice town, good food, hotels seem more organized and more flexible. We would have done this but for a semi-truck show that takes over the town in late September every year.
