Great views, nice staff and good continental breakfast. We had a double queen room with whirlpool hot tub in room. Filled the hot tub only to find an absolutely filthy, don’t even want to touch tub. When we told the front desk about it. She simply replied, “yeah I don’t think our staff cleans them real well.” We payed good money on a family vacation for this little treat for the kids. Extremely disappointed.

We had a wonderful view of Mackinac island from our room and the small lanai. We didn’t go to the beach, but they had nice lounge chairs all laid out the beach is colorful, smooth rocks and we did some scavenging. The breakfast looked good. We ended up meeting at Java Joes in the parking lot. Amazing place.

right on the beach of lake Michigan.

Pros: The location!!! and Staff.
Cons: The hotel seems a little out dated. We stayed in a Holiday inn Ann Arbor and the pillows were fluffy and soft.
Location: shopping, lake Michigan, restaurants. Shuttle to Macinac Island near as well.
The breakfast was hot, the hotel staff were so friendly. Ask for a lake view so you can truly enjoy the scenery. We had a bottom floor so we could walk right out to the beach. But the other ocean front views had balconies to sit on.

Nice hotel. A little dated.

Front desk was very friendly and helpful. Check in and check out was quick and easy. The rooms were clean but a little dated. Breakfast was ok, typical hotel breakfast.

We reserved a room with a double bed. It had a beautiful view of the lake that let us enjoy the sunrise. The staff was prompt to help us with anything we needed. Overall, this place was great!

The stay over all was ok. For the price, I've been in nicer hotels. However, I've never been disappointed with holiday Inn express hotels. The front desk staff was not as welcoming as I'm used to and the room was not cleaned thoroughly. They didn't bother to remove the trash from the night before.

Would not stay here to many spiders.

Pros: Free breakfast
Cons: No free Internet
Room was nice, then spiders moved in to balcony. Ask to change rooms, but they all had spiders.

Wonderful View

My finacee and I stayed at the holiday inn Express in St Ignace just as a weekend get away. We were very happy with the Location, and most importantly the view. We had a perfect view of the lake, and Mackinac Island. Room was very clean, and comfortable. Front desk staff was very friendly, and helpful on resturant suggestions. Over all, i would recomend this hotel to anyone looking to stay in the area, and the price was reasonable compared to other hotels in the area.

Worst Holiday Inn EVER!!!!!!!

Likes: Bought a lakefront room, and LOVED the view. Bonus: got a corner room, so it had an additional window. Room was ok-sized. ""Beach"" was quiet. Really liked the pool. It was small, but the spa was attached, so you could sit in it and watch your kids swim. And the water in both were comfortable. Dislikes: Not even close to the usual Holiday Inn standards. Bed was cheap and springy, not the comfortable mattresses I've experienced elsewhere. Bed and shower had hair (lots) when we arrived. Headboard showed lots of smears (of who knows what) when the light shined on it. Room was rather dilapidated--sprinkler hanging out of the wall, some wallpaper peeling, screen on patio door was half off, etc. And the breakfast was horrible. I stayed at a HI in Indiana that seemed fresh enough to be from a restaurant. This was NOT comparable. Eggs were watery mush, gravy cold, biscuits rock-hard, bacon limp and greasy. And that was when they weren't out of items. But the worst part was the bugs. SPIDERS EVERYWHERE!!! I read that from some other reviews, and thought they were just picky. Nope. Everywhere. Couldn't even use the patio. Talked to the front desk about it, and she said that St. Ignace just had a lot of spiders this year. After I got tired of killing them in our room, front desk had someone spray twice during our stay. Hubby still went to the patio and killed 10 in about 2 minutes. My kids spent all their time playing ""kill the spiders with a shoe"" on the patio--no joke. Internet never worked. WAYYYYYYY overpriced. Would have been acceptable as a cheap hotel--NOT a Holiday Inn. And definitely not for over $100 a night!

Anniversary trip

We took our 1 year anniversary trip to Mackinac Island & stayed at the Holiday Inn Express. It was extremely safe and comfortable. The breakfast was bountiful although the eggs were clearly powder. The pool & hot tub were wonderful! The beds felt like springs were poking us through the mattress. We slept ok anyway because we were so exhausted from our day. The view was magnificent! They do not have a bike rack but the overnight shift does do routine parking lot checks and assured us that they would be safe tied to our car as there had not been a bike theft there in years. We were thankful to have such nice staff. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone.
