Bavarian Haus Lakefront Inn
Ranked #5 of 29 Hotels in Saint Ignace
Reviewed July 12, 2010

Great and awesome view of Lake Huron and Mackinac Island from our room. The hotel itself was clean, but the hallways were really musty smelling. We were on the bottom floor, which smelled worse than the main floor. Breakfast was fine. My husband enjoyed the biscuits and gravy. Other options included cereal, toaster waffles, toast, bagels, hard boiled eggs, coffee/juice/milk. Price was very reasonable. Pool was nice and warm, although the chlorine levels seemed really high. Overall, our stay was nice. It would have been a lot better if the damp/musty smell in the hallway wasn't there.

This is an older hotel and has the tendency to smell just a little musty in the hallways but the room was clean, the beds were very comfortable and we could walk out from the outside door of our room right to the lake. We sat up until midnight just watching the lake and enjoying the lights from Mackinac Island. The Cost was well below everyone else in the area and all of this included a heated pool, two hot tubs and breakfast.

The bed was worse than a camp cot. The bathroom light fixture was full of dead bugs inside and out. The room smelled as if it hadn't been used all summer. Couldn't open the screen door to go on the balcony to see Lake Huron or Macinac Island. Shower curtain didn't fit the tub and water sprayed all over. At 8:00 AM all that was left of breakfast was oatmeal in a rusty crockpot. Parking was difficult. The pool wall was crumbling into the pool. The rooms needed updating. I was glad I brought my own linens to use.

The bed was worse than a camp cot. I heard every step the people above us took. There were 20 people in the breakfast room at 8:30 AM and all the food was gone except for oatmeal in a rusty crockpot. The shower curtain didn't fit the shower rod and water sprayed all over the room. The light fixture was full of dead bugs inside and out. The screen door to the balcony was full of holes and I couldn't open it because of all the bugs wanting to pay their respects to the dead bugs inside.The pool wall was crumbling into the pool and kept stepping on it. Spend the extra $20 and stay at Best Western.

This is the first time we stayed in St.Ignace, chose Days Inn via the internet.
When we got to our room, it was very clean & homey.
