“Mackinaw Island Getaway”
Reviewed October 12, 2013

We visited Mackinaw Island for the first time and decided to stay in St Ignace instead of Mackinaw City because it was a quieter town. Also, we wanted to be in the actual Upper Peninsula of Michigan. We loved our stay. The hotel was clean, welcoming and met all of our needs. The clerks at the front desk were helpful and courteous, the pool was inviting and warm, and the continental breakfast was a great way to start the day. The location was perfect. All we had to do was cross the street and we had two choices for ferries to the island. Will definitely recommend this stay and we hope to be back soon in the near future. Thanks for everything!

Room Tip: We liked the higher floor. Stay on the front side of the hotel facing the water. You can watch the...

Wonderful staff, very clean and love the pool & the hot tub is shaped like a heart! The staff suggested to go too the falls. It was amazing! Good continental breakfast. Great location! Clean rooms. Great bathroom tube. Great view and loved it! Thanks for the hard work and dedication to your staff and hotel.

We stayed at the Budget Host for two nights to visit Mackinaw Island, about a block away from Star Line and Shepler ferry services. Perfect location, 500 feet from shoreline. We had the corner/handicapped room on the lower floor right near the rear entry door with easy, direct access straight to parking lot. Room was very clean, beds were comfortable, had a little refrigerator and coffee pot, AC worked correctly. Bathroom was well supplied. Staff was very courteous and helpful with local info for activities. The pool was especially nice having large sliding windows that allowed the humidity to circulate away from the room. They had the usual sauna/hot tub options with a TV over the hot tub. Normal hotel breakfast including eggs and sausage was complimentary. Our room did have some noise from a neighbor's morning shower, the shower must be against the bedroom wall. The parking lot had just enough spaces for everyone's vehicle, but not an issue.

Room Tip: The handicapped room we were in had a neighbor's shower stall right next to our wall, you will k...

We chose the Budget Host due to the very favorable reviews on TripAdvisor. We were not disappointed. For the price it would be hard to beat! We were given a huge upstairs room that had a nice balcony (with table) overlooking the harbor (the hotel is not directly on the water but across the street). Would recommend asking for the front of the building to have the view.

The room had wifi, small refrigerator and coffee pot. The bed was comfortable. Bathroom was large and had everything we needed.

Breakfast was the usual fare of waffles, bagels, cereals but also eggs and sausage. It was one of the best breakfast we had on our two week trip.

Room Tip: Ask for the front of the building for the view.

We have been to this area many times in the past. Many new and different hotels available now. This was recommended by a family member. We had a suite of rooms and it worked out fine for us. We were impressed with the tv over the hot tub in the pool area. Things were clean and orderly and that made us feel good. Our beds were comfortable and tidy. We were thrilled with the breakfast that had many choices hot and cold.

The front desk was very accommodating to our needs. We had family coming from all over the country and they met all of our needs. We had adjoining suites and it couldn't have been better!!
The only thing that could be better would be 3 bedroom adjoining suites. We will DEFINATELY stay here again and check into using this hotel on our travels! Great place to stay.
