“Clean with a good view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2014

Our room was very clean & well kept. Everything was in line with what you should expect from a motel is this price range. Nice view of Lake Huron & lots of friendly Gulls. Would recommend to all except the 1-2% who expect the "Ritz".

The room was spacious, clean and comfortable, with an elevator to the 3rd floor and a beautiful view of the lake. About 3AM a strong wind, rain and thunderstorm moved thru the area and when we woke up in the morning, the electricity was off in the hotel and half of the city of St Ignace. Needless to say our anticipated scrumptious breakfast was abbreviated to cold items and no coffee. Fortunately going down 3 stories without a working elevator and suitcases was a lot easier than going up 3 stories via stairs with suitcases.

We honeymooned at this location when it was the Heritage Inn 30 years ago! This is not a 5-star hotel just because it's on the lakefront...Keep in mind it is pretty basic, but nice! When making the reservation, they made every attempt to get us in the same honeymoon room or close to it. We got the room next door to the end, ground floor, with a king bed jacuzzi suite. Check-in was quick. Thanks to desk clerk Paula :) Happy Anniversary to you as well in August Paula!
The room was clean, but a bit cramped, with the jacuzzi being so close to the bed, but we made the best of it! Our bed was very comfortable. Nice little covered patio with side privacy walls, which looks out onto the lake, with 2 chairs with end table. Nice to go out & relax after a day of fun. You can walk out onto the sandy/grassy area from the patio, but beware of seagull droppings. The shrubs past the sandy area in front of the patio need to be cut down, especially for those that are on ground level, so you have a nice clear view of the lakefront.
They offer a continental breakfast attached to the front desk lobby, which is up by the main road on top of a hill, and the hotel rooms sit down by the lake. Didn't feel like hiking up the hill first thing in the mornings, so I have no reviews on the free breakfast.
They have a pool & hot tub building separate from the hotel, but close by.
Housekeeping did an outstanding job, and made our room up each day as it was our first night there. So kudos to you! Thanks for a pleasant stay.

Bugs, bugs, and more bugs. Wow, we didn't expect the millions of bugs on the patio, in the hallway, and in the elevator, and trying to get into our room. I know you shouldn't blame management for bugs, but yikes, that's a lot of bugs. Time to get some chemicals and spray, then spray some more.

We frequently travel to the UP of Michigan and this was our first stay at this hotel, and it was not ok. Even the breakfast area is interesting, as it isn't located in the actual hotel, it is about a hundred yards up the hill at the check in building, and it only seats about 20, so be prepared to take your breakfast back with you to your room, or stand while eating. It was a good breakfast, and the walk is good for me, or so I tell myself.

We had a king bed with an in-room Jacuzzi tub. The room was dated, but overall ok. We couldn't use the patio overlooking the lake, as we would have been swarmed by the bugs, and we couldn't really see outside either as the screen was covered with bugs too. But the wife enjoyed the jacuzzi after a long day of motorcycling. Maybe June is 'bug time', but then the room cost should reflect a better rate, but it didn't. After a lengthy talk with management (we're platinum Choice Hotel members), all they had to say was "sorry". We won't be back.

Good size room which was clean and modern. Great view of lake but had to view from inside as balcony was a mozzie haven. Comfy bed. Good selection at breakfast. Only negative comment would be the amount of noise heard from room above and rooms both sides. I don't think they were particularly making a lot of noise but that the insulation was useless.

The day before we were going to stay, I called to ask if we could do an early check-in so my 6 month old would have a place to nap. I was told to call in the morning, and they could try. When I called at 11am, they said it wasn't ready, and the lady said she had no idea when it would be. So, we went to explore St. Ignace and stopped by the hotel at 1:15. Heather at the front told us it still wasn't ready, but all rooms had to be cleaned by 3 (check in time) so she would call if it was done early. So, after no phone call and no early check in (and with a very cranky 6 month old), we went to check in at 3:10. We were told they still needed 20 minutes to finish. She called the woman and asked her to go clean our room next. So, this was after check in time, the parking lot had 5 cars in it, and she couldn't have called the lady to ask her to clean it at 1:15? We then watched the cleaning person stand and chat with a co-worker, take laundry up, etc. and not even get to our room for another 15 minutes. By the time she was done, it was 4pm...a full hour after check-in time. They claimed to be short staffed, but they had vacancy, were not busy and just seemed unorganized. Also, 2 of the 4 ice machines were broken, lots of bugs on the balcony, and decor/amenities from the early 90s. We will never stay here again. Also, don't even think about taking your continental breakfast out of the lobby. There is a rule against it, and they will say something to you.
