We have stayed here two different times this summer while visiting Silver Beach. We LOVE the beach and this hotel makes our stay complete. The location is convenient, we enjoy the pool and hot tub, and appreciate the quality and variety of breakfast foods. Our number 1 pick when staying in this area!

Overall my wife and I were happy with our stay at the Holiday Inn Express in St. Joesph. It had been a long while since we had been back in this city and we were happy to stay at a place that was close to the beaches and shopping. Additionally, the room we stayed in was very spacious and clean.

However, there were a couple of problems with our room. First, we had a lake front room on the west end of the hotel and the traffic noise from the Red Arrow Highway was a bit loud. Second, our sliding glass door to our patio did not have a working lock. It was missing the portion of the lock attached to the frame that the door latched to when locked. The only way we were able to secure the door was the pole on the other side of the door. Third, the placement of the television was a bit awkward. It was in front of the bed, while the couch was on the other side of the room. We ended up pulling the dresser out so we could turn the television so we could watch it from the couch. Finally, the two closets in our room were extremely small.

As I said before, my wife and I had a decent stay in this hotel, and would be willing to stay in it again. However, the hotel should be inclined to make sure that each room is in good condition before other guests have more serious issues.

There were 3 adults in our party and we chose this hotel for the location and the fact that there were 2 queen beds in the room.

We loved the location. The hotel has a view of the lake but most of the rooms did not (ours didn't). This was not a problem for us. The hotel was located in a great spot that was easy to get in and out of.

The swimming pool was actually warm and quite refreshing. The hot tub was great. We all enjoyed the breakfast bar and the breakfast area was cozy.

We only had two complaints, but they were not deal breakers and would not prevent us from staying again. The room was a little stuffy, but we changing the temperature in the room solved most of that problem. I think this is probably true of most older hotels. The second complaint was that the mattresses were a little soft and uncomfortable. this might only be an issue for you if you are overweight, like me.

I would not hesitate to stay at this hotel again. We really enjoyed our stay and the staff were very nice and accommodating.

Noisy due to kids, family place - not for a romantic getaway. Room very plain, furniture very ugly. But on Lake Michigan - great sunsets. Over priced for a budget Hotel

This hotel is in a good location you do have to drive to the beach and to the downtown area but only 2 - 3 miles. The lobby was very nice but the room was lacking a little dated and it could have been cleaner but all in all a nice room I asked for a balacany room but the front desk clerk was not very friendly or helpful she refused any upgrades eventhough they were not booked in full. A little on the expensive side but it is summer time and you are on the beach soooooo.

Nice place to stay . Only a 5 minute drive to Silver Beach and downtown. Stayed here based on a previous review and it panned out perfectly. Once we got back home I ravved about our stay and the cute little beach town and now one of my friends are going to visit St. Joseph with her family and some other friends. We will definitely be back.
