“Best Value for the Money”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

We called the Budget Host when we arrived at our orignial destination, which was less than desirable. The front desk staff took the time to offer me several choices of rooms, offered to show me the rooms before we made a commitment to reserve, and assisted me in making the reservations. We travel with our dogs, and they had no problems with them. Our two-room suite was spacious, clean, quiet, and had all the comforts of home. Each time we called the front desk or had any questions, staff were just as friendly as they had been during the initial phone call. For the difference in the cost of the rooms, between our first motel and Budget Host, I would definitely call the Budget Host! Will be staying with them each time we travel to St. Ignace!

Great view, great rooms.

Had the same amenities of a Hampton Inn or holiday inn express.

Can't rate the breakfast because we didn't partake.
Comfortable bed and clean. A little odd to have an actual room key, but that was kinda a charming. Would stay again.

We have stayed here a number of times as stop when traveling the entire state of Michigan. The rooms are always spacious compared many hotels. It is clean. The kids really enjoy that there is a pool. Breakfast is pretty good, the breakfast area was expanded over the last year sometime giving more room for eating. Many of the rooms have nice balconys allowing for a view of the lake (looking over parking lots and highway first), but it's still nice to have the extra space and a view.

Stayed here for one night when we arrived in St. Ignace without a hotel reservation and pretty much everything in town was booked. We got the last room when stopping by at 7:30PM which was a 2 room suite in an annex building. The room was a nice suprise with 2 very comfortable beds, lots of pillows, sofa bed, updated bath, and mini fridge and microwave. There were no window screens and the windows were screwed shut so we couldn't have fresh air in the room, which is a major downfall for me. Luckily, we were only here for 14 hours before moving on to Mackinac Island. It looks like the rooms in the main portion of the hotel have slider doors with screens and a small balcony. The pool house looked nice, but we didn't have time to swim and didn't use it. The breakfast wasn't as good as the Best Western across the street though.

Room Tip: Get the main building, not the annex. Windows in the annex don't open.

We were so surprised when we went to the little town of Saint Ignace to find such a gem of a hotel! The staff was very friendly, the FREE breakfast was very good, and the the room was spacious and very clean. The location is absolutely awesome. It is right down the street from many restaurants and shopping centers, along with being right across the street from the ferry boats to Mackinaw Island. We were so excited when we saw that this hotel was pet friendly.We will definitely stay here again!

The rooms are very clean, the decor is dated but in good shape. They have a power problem, when the A/C comes on the lights dim. The staff is very friendly. This is a pet friendly Hotel. We had a two room suite which was nice. Room 251

Room Tip: Stay in front of the Hotel if possible, the back building is a bit dated.

My wife and I were on vacation last week and stayed at this hotel on a Fri. night without reservations and we got a better room for less money than we did when we stayed at the Fairview In in Mackinaw City. We ended up with a two room suite that was as neat and clean as you could get. The front desk had very friendly helpful people and the allowed our dog to stay at no charge. If I would have know how nice the hotel was we would have stay here for our whole vacation.

Room Tip: Well sometimes it's just good luck that you stumble on a nice place, so don't always go on l...
