“Clean, affordable, great location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2012

I was in a pinch to get a quick one night hotel in upper Michigan. After seeing the reviews on TA about this hotel, I booked it quickly and hoped for the best. I was pleasantly suprised. Although some areas looked a bit outdated, the rooms were clean and stocked with the basics. Our room, room 220 had a private balcony with chairs that had a view of the water. The location was great, within walking distance to the shops and resturants along the waterfront. It was quite and very affordable. Would stay again if in the area.

Room Tip: Rooms on the second story have a balcony, request on facing the water. We stayed in room 220, it was...

I was surprised that a Budget Host would be top-rated in St. Ignace, but after taking a chance and staying there, I see why. It has most of the amenities of a big-name hotel that's close by--pool, hot breakfast--at half the price. It might not be right on the lake, but has a beautiful lake view.

Room Tip: The low 200 rooms have a shared balcony overlooking the lake.

Up top says it all- we stayed here for one night a week or so ago. Everything, and I do mean everything, is cleaned till it sparkles. However, if you demand a marble foyer and pillow top mattresses, keep looking, I'd probably look outside the UP in fact. The breakfast bar is also worth mentioning, as is the fact that both staff and guests are very friendly. Overall, we'll definately stay here again.

Stayed 1 night enroute to Minnesota and place was very good. The room was clean, staff were friendly & helpful and breakfast was adequate - typical of a what they now call breakfast and much better than a continental breakfast. My only complaint was that I was woken up by a dog barking at 2:30 AM and again at 6:30 AM - sounded like the same dog and it seemed to be coming from the house right beside the property. Would definitely stay again if in the area and would recommend this hotel to others.

We loved this hotel. We stayed here two nights at the end of May and had a nice room with a private balcony where we could watch the activity on the lake. Comfortable clean room with cozy beds and pillows. The ferry is only a block away and we spend the day on Mackinac while coming back to the hotel for the second night. The staff was great! We did book online and received a nice discount for seniors. We would only stay here if we came back to this area. Very reasonable prices for the wonderful location. Highly recommend.

Room Tip: Ask for a room to the left with a balcony.

We stayed here a Fri & Sat night in late May 2012 & found the spot ideal for our trip to Mackinac Island....a block from the ferry...view of the lake..walkable to downtown...reasonable AARP rates...decent breakfast...nice pool..but did not have time to use....great WIFI access.
Very helpful hostess...told us of the viewing area below the bridge !!!

Room Tip: Get second floor room for better view...

We stayed at this hotel from 5/29/2012 to 5/31/2012. It was great! Clean, comfortable, and the price was right. Staff was very helpful and we are going to always stay here when we travel to this area of Michigan.
