“Get a Lake View- Beautiful”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2012

The hotel has a great location and good, friendly staff. The hotel has a free continental breakfast which looked good, but Java Joe's is a must try and is located adjacent to the parking lot. There is also a chocolate store on the other side of the parking lot. Be sure to get your fudge!! St Ignace is a quieter option than Mackinac City. There is some fun stuff to do on this side of the bridge as well. The only down side to the hotel was the noise above our heads. We were on the first floor, and there were young children staying in the room above us. Not really the hotel's fault but the insulation from floor to floor could be improved. There is no fridge or microwave. The room size was cozy. The view was awesome!

Room Tip: Pick a room on lake side for the view and make sure there are no small children above you for better...

My wife and I stayed here for one night while on vacation in the Upper Penninsula. While we didn't enjoy the town of St. Ignace as much as its main competition on the other side of the bridge (Mackinaw City), we enjoyed our stay at the Holiday Inn Express. We arrived earlier than anticipated and before their posted check-in but the front desk was extremely friendly and let us check in early. The property is one of the nicest in St. Ignace and we had a nice view of the lake. It is also just a couple minutes drive from the center of town and the docks for all the transportation ferrys to Mackinac Island. Both my wife and I slept very well and didn't hear any sounds from any of the rooms above or below us. In the morning if you opened up the balcony door you could hear the sea gulls but if you closed the door you did not hear anything. The breakfast was also very good and they had at least two employees working it to make sure everything was filled and running smoothly. They have man signs around the property stating to the guests that their goal for every guest is to rate them a '10'; I honestly felt that is the grade they deserved and would not hesitate staying there again if I was every in St. Ignace. All in all an excellent stay.

I chose to stay in St. Ignace thinking the hotels were newer but that is not the case. Holiday Inn Express is my fav and they had rooms overlooking the water. Lobby is nice but when you walk to the elevators, you notice carpet has been here a while. My room is handicapable but dated. I can feel the mattress springs but bed is comfortable. Hotel is ok but am paying less than $70 for lake view so it works for me.

A lake front hotel with a view of Mackinaw island. The hotel was clean. The front desk was helpful and friendly. I would stay there again when in the area. We also had a small balcony that over looked the lake.

Room Tip: I believe most rooms have a lake view.

We spent a night here recently on our return from the UP. We rented a lakeview room, which came with a hot tub. The tub was in the living room, and evidently the carpet had gotten wet on a regular basis, because the smell of mold and mildew was overpowering. We were given a standard room after complaining, which at least didn't smell.
The whole facility is dated and dirty, I wouldn't recommend it to anyone.

Room Tip: Avoid the hot tub rooms at all cost

Staying in St. Ignace for our trip to Mackinac Island reduced our cost at least 30 percent over staying in Mackinaw City! And it was so much more relaxed, with a beautiful view. They also offer a combo package including ferry fix that can mean even more savings. Laid back, walkable history at your doorstep. Free parking at the ferry too! The hotel shows signs of updates and improvements coming, but it's certainly fine given that we were there to be out and about, not lounging around a hotel room! Oh, and it's pronounced IG-niss.

I was a little skeptical when I read some of the hotel reviews on another website (not named) as some people gave this hotel 2 stars or 2 1/2 stars. Those people must be used to staying at $400-$500 a night hotels. For $120 we got a room with a view of Lake Huron, 2 queen beds and a walk out to a sandy beach where the kids can play. If you wanna go in the water, that's fine, just being old tennis shoes or water shoes cause it's really rocky. The sand box area is right before the rocky shores. Staff was nice and the pool and jacuzzi were great as well. Nice holiday inn express and we will be definitely coming back.
