Holiday Inn Express Munising - Lakeview
Ranked #2 of 11 Hotels in Munising
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 13 August 2014 via mobile

There weren't many choices on hotels in this area and although the price seems a little high for a non lake view room we still stayed here for 2 nights. The entire stay was good, the rooms are pretty basic, however the rest of the hotel is decorated very nice. The staff was some of the most friendly hotel staff I've come across, then genuinely seemed to enjoy it there. The breakfast was decent but nothing great. Although we didn't use it but the pool area was very nice even had a very shallow area for small children. This would be great for a rainy day, probably worth the price of the stay if you got stuck with a rainy day or two since there aren't many indoor actives around. If we make our way back to munising then this is where I'll be staying!

We loved this hotel and I hope to come back with other family members. It's like a Colorado ski resort in design and is super clean and comfortable. We loved our balcony with the scrumptious sunrise and sunset. I'm puzzled by the reviews….it's a Holiday Inn….it's not a Ritz Carlton so what are you expecting?
The staff was wonderful!

Like others have said in their reviews the walls are thin. Plus we were on the second floor and it sounded like a marching band was above us. Book the third floor if you have to stay. Otherwise the beds were comfy and the breakfast typical of HI expresses. We actually shortened our stay due to the noise level.

Just returned from a 3 night stay at this Holiday Inn Express, and really enjoyed our visit! We traveled with our Golden Retriever, so we needed a pet-friendly room and we chose a lakeside view (well worth the $$) with an easily accessible patio, so we could walk our dog right outside the room. There was a marathon that weekend, so it was crowded at first, but I love the area, and the staff is very friendly & helpful. We stayed here last year, and both of our visits were top-notch!

Room Tip: Although you need a ground floor room for pets, the only drawback is that we could hear other guests...

You will find that this is a very nice hotel. The breakfast is a very attractive place to eat with a wonderful view. .Staff was very helpful and cheerful. I need extra shampoo and they were so gracious and quickly gave it to me and asked if I was in need of anything more. Rooms were very comfortable with microwave and fridge. Nice deck attached to room with wonderful view of the lake.

Room Tip: Be sure to get a lakeview room, really worth it!!

Holiday Inn Express is not our 1st choice of hotel when we go on vacation due to prior experiences at other Holiday Inn Express hotels, BUT this hotel is exceptional. The desk staff was helpful. The room was great! It was quiet and we didn’t hear our neighbors as we have at other Holiday Inn Expresses. Our room had all of the amenities you would expect. It was on the 3rd floor and we had a great view of the lake and a section Pictured Rocks. The breakfast offered many options. There was a helpful woman who would see the supply diminish and refill. We would highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: A great choice! Higher floor have better lake views

Stayed during 4th of July and came from one of the best Holiday Inn experiences (Sault St. Marie). Not too many choices in this area (Typical rural UP town), so had to go with it. Way over priced for what it is. However, it was clean (hot) and had good breakfast. The breakfast buffet server was kicking tail and making sure all ran well. She was perhaps the best thing next to the view that this hotel has to offer. Had 2 bed/2bath room with kitchenette in Sault St. Marie, and paid a fraction of what they gouged me for here. It was a once in a lifetime thing to do with Pictured Rocks, but won't stay again.

Room Tip: Since you are going to pay through the nose anyway, get a patio room with a Lake Superior view. Oth...
