“Great Hotel!”
Reviewed 14 July 2014

Wonderful view. Great indoor pool and hot tub. Wonderful breakfast. Perfect location. Only fyi...staff has to tell you to eat at the Dogpatch in town if you ask for a recommendation...same owner. Way overpriced and food not good. Drive 15 miles out of town to the Haywire...much better...great food, service, and price!!

Stayed on 6/28 & 6/29/14. Hotel is on a hilltop overlooking Lake Superior - make sure to get a balcony room with a view. Rooms were very clean, beds comfortable, staff friendly and breakfast was average.

Our family of five is tough to get a room that accommodates us. But HIX's presidential Suite has 2 bedrooms with king size beds, 2 bathrooms, and a couch or rollaway. For a reasonable price. And the views out the windows of Lake Superior: Amazing!

I enjoyed my recent one-night stay at the Holiday Inn Express in Munising, MI. Its location on Lake Superior is just beautiful! It is also about 1 mile west of the city of Munising, so it was nice and quiet. I arrived to check in at about 6:45 in the evening. The desk clerk was quick and efficient with my check in, but she did not seem overly friendly or personable. She did not make any small talk with me like other staff at different hotels have. But, I was quickly taking luggage to my room. I had a standard king-bed room on the 3rd floor facing the highway. Unfortunately when I made my reservation (less than a week before), the only lake side room left was a handicap accessible room on the 1st floor. I did not feel right about taking a handicap room in case someone really needed it (and there was a family with a child in a wheelchair staying when I did). I settled for the highway side room. I thought $199 for a weeknight was very expensive considering I didn't even have a lake view. I am staying on the lake in St. Ignace later on my trip for about $20 less than that per night--how does that work?! Anyway, the room was clean and comfortable. It was obviously cleaned well. I enjoyed the various amenities the hotel offered--fitness room, indoor pool/whirlpool, continental breakfast. The pool area was very spacious, and that is always nice. Even with 4 or 5 other families in the pool area when I was, it did not feel crowded at all. The hot tub is one of the largest I have seen in a chain hotel! I really enjoyed spending time in the pool and whirlpool. The breakfast was incredible, as it always is at HI Express locations--love the cinnamon rolls and pancake machine! I definitely got a hearty breakfast! I like the showerheads at HI Express, too! My stay was really nice, and I wish I could have spent more time in the Munising area.

I did have a case of insomnia during my stay here for some reason--not the fault of the hotel, but I did not sleep well for some reason. I very rarely have trouble sleeping at home or in hotels, so I am not sure what happened. I was using the Internet computer in the lobby when a family asked the desk clerk for directions to the hospital because their daughter was throwing up and she walked through the area getting sick into a bag, so I am thinking that I was kind of freaked out by that. In any case, I wish my sleep quality had been better here. This really is not the hotel's fault, though.

I really enjoyed my stay. The only reason I dropped to 4 stars is the high rate I was charged for a weeknight, which I found somewhat out of line. Would definitely recommend this hotel in Munising!!

The Holiday Inn Express - Munising is a beautiful hotel. The staff is friendly and the lake view rooms have a magnificent view. The breakfast was delicious (esp. the cinnamon rolls) and it was wonderful to eat outside on the patio overlooking the lake and Grand Island. The rooms are nice and clean.The pool was a huge hit with our children - very big with a mushroom and in a very pretty vaulted room. The location is perfect if you're looking for a boat ride (we recommend the Riptide Ride) or to hike, visit waterfalls or to see the Pictured Rocks Natl. Lakeshore (Miner's Castle area is lovely).

Room Tip: Definitely pay the extra cost for a balcony lake view room!

Hotel was very clean and well taken care of. Beds were ok..not the best. Breakfast buffet was good as well.
The only negative thing about our stay was the people directly above us let their kids run around and jump all over the place at 11pm which kept us up. Seriously people..how rude can you be?

I stayed at this spot June 19 & 20, 2014.
The rooms are spacious - the breakfast plentiful and the hotel clean. The pool area was super nice and even included a shower & sauna. It's a great location for day trips throughout the Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore. Be sure to stop at the visitors center to get a map as there is super spotty cell/GPS service.
