We have stayed at the Budget Host Inn as a couple and with family and business associates many times over the past 2 years and have been in a variety of room styles both upstairs and down. Using the elevator as needed, we have stayed in rooms from a handicap 2-room suite, or a 3-room suite, to 2 double beds, 2 queens or one king bed single rooms. The beds are nicely dressed with a variety of pillows for individual needs. We usually have our best night's sleep here! Every room has been very clean with well-appointed bathrooms having soaps, shampoo, and lotion, plenty of linens and enjoyable shower heads, also, coffee maker, coffee and water cups and related items. The TV's are large and have full cable service. Internet is easily available, but may require a password, which the staff cheerfully offers. There are also room phones. The FREE continental breakfast which ends at 10 a.m., includes eggs, fruit, cereals (hot and cold), biscuits, sausage gravy, sausage, potatoes, toast, cinnamon toast, milk, juices, teas, and excellent coffee (regular and decaf). Donuts and muffins round out the whole offering. The coffee is available 24-7. The breakfast area is recently enlarged, and with the pool and hot tub adjoining it, breakfast can be taken pool-side as well. The indoor pool is kept at a comfortably warm temperature, and the hot-tub is a huge double-heart shaped relaxing environment with TV viewing in that area. Extra towels in the area help those of us who might forget them. There is an exercise room, a game room, and vending machines available. We enjoy the balcony or exterior rooms, but the interior rooms have plenty of light from large windows. There is an upstairs (or use the elevator) large outdoor balcony overlooking the bay. The views across the street are lovely! Several good restaurants are within walking distance, and several take-out establishments will deliver. The ferry boats for Mackinac Island dock within walking distance. Casino shuttles service the Budget Host Inn with a simple request at the front desk. The Budget Host Inn is on the best side of town for it is a short distance if you wish to drive yourself to Kewadin Odawa Casino. The Inn's staff is absolutely delightful, and some of the most helpful we have experienced. The owners continually keep a schedule of updating and upgrading the Inn such that it never is left in need of repairs or cosmetic attention. If any problem arises, the staff and management do all that they can to remedy the difficulty as quickly as possible. One of the best things for us is the pet-friendly accommodations, both inside and out. A small fee may be charged for the pet, but it is certainly reasonable. Overall, the Budget Host Inn has quality and friendliness beyond what the room costs would suggest, we feel we receive more value for our money when staying here compared to any other. We appreciate having this quality when we are away from home!
Easier access to the Casino since you do not have to go through town. All balcony rooms offer a nic...
