“We Love This Hotel”
Reviewed January 9, 2013

This was our second year staying at the Budget Host Inn. We Stayed June 8 thru 10, 2012 we booked 2 rooms this year and brought our son, daughter in law and grandbaby. we love this Hotel. The staff here are very friendly and give you a coupon for $3.00 off the ferry to Mackinaw Island. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The breakfast is plentyful and hot. We really enjoyed the pool and hot tub after walking all day on the Island. We always try to stay here at The Budget Host Inn when we vacation in the U.P

Well worth every penny, Stay here and you won't be disappointed!

Stayed at the Budget Inn the first week of October 2012. Spent several days visiting with our son, who lives in Frankenmuth, and took us to the UP to see Makinaw Island. This hotel is very well run. Every good thing you read in the reviews is true. It is really nice to see a hotel thriving in this crazy economy. The hotel is really dated. But is this situation it's not a bad thing, because everything is so well maintained. And clean, clean, clean. We ate at a fantastic diner on the main drag, can't think of what the name is, but just ask the lady at the front desk. She also works at the diner, and her friendliness at both the hotel and the diner made us love the hotel even more. We would definitely stay at this place again. There is one thing that I hate to mention about this hotel, that I didn't like. Our room smelled of cigarette smoke when we arrived. Fortunately we were able to open the balcony door and air it out. Every time we stepped out of our room we smelled cigarettes, and saw more than one person smoking on their balcony. There was so much cigarette smoke I feel it needs to be mentioned in this review. We are not smokers, so are not used to smoke. This a very nice hotel in a great location. If the smoking issue were resolved it would be a perfect place to stay for a visit in beautiful St Ignace.

Room Tip: Get a second floor room with a view of the water.

I visited St. Ignace to attend Ice Hockey tournaments at the Little Bear arena several times in the past few years. I always try and get the team to book at the Budget Host, it's the closest to the arena being only a couple of hundred yards away, it's clean, friendly, has a pool, good price, hot breakfast and very accommadating.
New this trip was brand new looking fitness room, a couple of treadmills, an elliptical and a weights machine.
The room I stayed in was spotless, and looked like it had just been refurbished.

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.

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
