“Our Go-To Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

We love Budget Host! This is the hotel that we always stay at in St. Ignace. We love to stay in the 2 room suites. When our friends meet us there we try and reserve the adjoining two room suites! Great hot breakfast buffet the next morning. It is right across from Starline Ferry service. The front desk staff is helpful. We have always been given loyalty discount coupons for our next stay when we check out. Housekeeping is good! They also provide discount coupons for area attractions. One time the front desk staff even went online and found us discount ferry coupons and printed them off for us. Nice small town atmosphere and hospitality!!!

Although there are lots of places to stay in this town, this hotel seems to be the most popular spot and there are lots of reasons why.

- rooms are quiet, clean and spacious.
- ground floor have small attached balconies.
- an elevator is available to get to the second floor.
- lovely pool area
- ample but limited breakfast.

There are only about 6 rooms on the front with direct pull up access so book ahead if possible.

Had to stay in Saint Ignace for the first time ever due to being stranded by the closure of the Mackinac Bridge, the rooms were nice and clean and the staff was helpful and best of all it is pet friendly. I really appreciated the outdoor access and view of the lake from the balcony as did my pet he enjoyed seeing the birds and the fresh air blowing in from the lake. It was an overall good distraction from the annoyance of being unable to complete the trip home.

We're pleased that you found us after being stranded in St. Ignace due to the bridge closure. The winds were incredibly high that evening and we're happy that you and your pet had an enjoyable stay with us. Thank you for that review and we hope you will return.

Our stay at this hotel was fantastic, super clean, beautiful rooms. When booking I chose to get connecting rooms, one for the "moms" and one for us "daughters" worked out perfect-and the view from the balcony couldn't have been better. Location was good also, close to town and all things we did during our stay, already planning our return trip next year. The staff were great too. I can't say enough good things. See you next September!!

Room Tip: Ask for the lake view

Hard to get connecting rooms nowadays, but this inn offered a better arrangement: a LARGE 2BR suite with the bedrooms separated by a door, rather than an alcove or archway. So, the privacy of two units, but not the cost! This inn has expanded significantly over the years; unfortunately, the size of the parking lot has not kept pace. The Breakfast Room is small, but well equipped. Luggage carts are a nice touch. Our third visit since it was THE BELLE ISLE; will return.

Room Tip: Suites do not face main street; quieter than standard rooms.

We stayed in four motels during our Lake Superior Circle Tour and this was the most clean, best breakfast, and great price of them all. Nice room and you could see Lake Superior out the balcony side of the motel. You can walk down the street to great restaurants and shops. We will definitely come back again.

Room Tip: I think this was recently renovated. Everything was so clean, new and the continental breakfast was...

Pet Friendly!!!!! This is the most important for me. There is grassy areas all around the hotel with poop bags available. The hotel's view is awesome, ask for a room with a balcony. You can walk down the main street with your dog. Lots of places to eat. The woman at the front desk (do not remember her name) was very helpful as I was interested in a "Pastie" and was directed to a diner on the main street, was it good... I was also given ideas on things to see and do with my dog. There was a good breakfast in the am. Check in and out was easy. They actually had someone check the room at check out to make sure my dog did not destroy anything. This was a first for me. I would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: ask for a balcony!
