“Probably the best choice in Munising”
Reviewed June 23, 2014

Munising is a remote and small town. Not a lot of options - but this Holiday Inn Express was quite nice. Indoor pool and sauna, and lakeviews available. We also liked that it was a bit out of town, so it was more scenic. Breakfast was good, with delicious warm cinnamon rolls. Rooms are fairly typical of this hotel chain, if not a touch nicer. Balcony was nice to have. We stayed here after the Pictured Rocks cruise, which is a lovely experience! This hotel is very convenient to that activity. Free parking and wireless Internet.

Room Tip: Waterfront rooms are worth the extra cost - so pretty, with a gorgeous sunrise!

The staff at the Munising, Michigan, Holiday Inn is very friendly and helpful, and the rooms are clean and spacious. My wife and I really enjoyed the choices of breakfast foods, along with convenient access to Munising. (Annie at the front desk was especially pleasant to deal with.)

Room Tip: Many times upgrades are available, for rooms with views of the lake -- at least during the off-seaso...

Our room was clean and pleasant, and it's furnishings and finishes looked pretty new. We had a very quiet night's sleep. Our room was on third floor with a balcony overlooking the lake and Grand Island - gorgeous. The breakfast room is quite large so there is adequate room, and the food selections were a nice variety in a clean presentation. There is a large patio area off the dining room with several tables and chairs to enjoy the fresh air and sunshine.

The room was fine, the hotel was clean, the breakfast was good, the views of lake were a plus BUT the fitness room was ridiculous with some strange equipment that we have never seen, despite being regular fitness equipment users around the world and in many gyms. Although we exercise daily, this time we opted NOT to use these low end devices that are quite unusual for a chain name brand hotel.

If you are allergic to animals do not consider staying here because the hotel is pet friendly but does not limit pets to one or even two floors, giving pet owners rooms anywhere. Normal vacuuming cannot sufficiently clean out pet dander and although most pet friendly hotels usually limit where they will put animals, specifically in case of allergies, this hotel even permitted dog owners to have extremely long reins on dogs who were annoying to people on the back patio of the hotel.

I was surprised to have these two issues since this chain has been on the rise in my opinion and unless you are a traveler who is looking for an unusually pet friendly hotel above and beyond others, be wary if you have allergies or plan to exercise in their fitness room. Otherwise, the bed is comfy and the breakfast typical of this chain.

Room Tip: Be wary if you have allergies and be sure to ask for a room not recently occupied by pets.

Clean, comfortable, North-Woodsy décor. Staff friendly and helpful. Beautiful view of Lake Superior. Get a room on the lake side, if you can. Nice little balconies on the upper floors, lake side. Very nice pool and hot tub. Good breakfast.

Stayed here for a girls weekend kayaking trip. Hotel is clean and the staff is very friendly. The free breakfast offered nice options, and the coffee was hot and fresh. Beautiful lakefront view from the breakfast room. Staff is friendly. Very comfortable beds, thick pillows, fridge and microwave in room. The hotel is right on the main road and close to many restaurants and sights. Only thing keeping this from being a 5 star review was the fact that they don't have adjoining rooms, which we thought we had booked. Would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Definitely spring for a lake view room-the balcony view is worth it.

Clean hotel in a nice lodge like setting in Upper Michigan on the shore of Lake Superior. Had room with a breath-taking view of Lake Superior on the third floor with a balcony in the room. Room was very large and well appointed with a mini fridge and microwave oven, and several nice amenities for a chain hotel. Bedding was comfortable, however the sheets were thinning and the pillow cases were starting to rip. Hallways were unusually warm for late May. Room had air conditioning and very comfortable. Thin walls were evident, but not a problem on this two day stay. Would definitely stay at this property again in the future if in Munising again. Very small town near Pictured Rocks, not much else to do but visit the state park and nearby Marquette. Would probably stay in Marquette on any future trip. Hotel would rate as a 8 out of 10 in my opinion.

Dear 4JohnnyD,
We want to thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay at our hotel. We are so pleased to hear that everything met your expectations, and want to formally apologize for the condition of the bedding. I've made sure housekeeping is more vigilant about the thinning sheets and want to thank you for bringing this to our attention so that we can address the issue as quickly as possible.
We are unfortunately a small town and don't have many attractions or shopping opportunities like Marquette does, but we are glad you were willing to stay with us while visiting the Pictured Rocks!
