Crossed the Mighty Mac (The Macinaw Bridge) from Macinac City into St, Ignace on the U.P side. Macinac city was just toooo touristy and I found St. Ignace to be a good bit more authentic. There were plenty of tourist stores but just a much nicer feel. We saw a number of modest hotels offering $59 for two specials on their signs, but they were looking a bit rundown and/or did not have internet which I wanted. In the middle of downtown we saw an unusual looking Big Yellow Building called the Colonial Inn. They advertised $59 also and looked a lot more interesting with gardens, a big old porch etc. After checking into the standard Comfort, Holiday Inn Express, Best Western, which are all nice, but a bit out of town, we came back in to check out the Colonial. It is an unusual combination of a motel and a Bed and Breakfast. The B&B rooms were cute, antique etc and about $140 a night. But the motel rooms were all $59 a night and had the same garden, and two rocking adirondack chairs on the porch. The rooms have an OK view of the lake across the street and are set back 30 yards from the street. When we stopped in (without reservations) they only had a suite left which was usually $79 but the wonderful innkeeper said that since the sign said $59 she would give me the room for $59. I did get to see another room as we passed and it looked clean, and attractive. Our "suite" consisted of a nice bedroom and a daybed and desk in the other room. All was fairly up to date and the room was very clean, and the carpet new. I especially like that they provided Neutrogena products. There were more than a few restaurants nearby and a small breakfast cafe right next door. AND they have wireless access. You might have to sit on the porch for good reception, but at this price the stay was an interesting, amazing value. I would highly recommend this hotel to those of you who like something different than the same old chains.
