It is right down town across from the water. Beautiful view and the staff was incredible. The only down fall was a small one and that was their breakfast. They could add a but more selection to breakfast instead of just coffee, yogurt, mini muffins, and toast with jelly. We met some 9f the friendliest and most kind people there.

The air conditioner rattled so bad we could not use it. All else was usable.

the website and desk said there was wifi, however even with the passcode and connection identifier, I could not connect to the internet from the room. Hotel staff also could not find my reservation without extended time to look for it on their computer and the confirmation number, I was told x2 I did not have a reservation, good thing I printed out my confirmation!

Avoid at all costs

Pros: Nothing.
Cons: Everything.
Location: Great location within walking distance to everything in downtown St.Ignace.
Where do I begin. The room I was given had water issues so I was switched to another room. It was dirty, stains on the bedding, hair on the pillows. Wallpaper was peeling off the wall in the bathroom, smelled musty and dirty. The bed is hard as a rock, pillows were flat. Awoke at 2am to a couple (who previously were naked with the curtains open) fighting and sounded light throwing things against the wall. The morning we left it was pouring and there are no gutters on the hotel so every way to the parking lot is a waterfall you have to walk through to get to your car. The location is second to none in St.Ignace but the hotel itself is a place I will avoid. I stayed for the price and will be more than willing to pay more to be elsewhere when we travel north again.
