“Disappointed”
Reviewed 14 July 2014

I read pretty good reviews so I went ahead and booked an overnight here. Let me start with the good things. It's in a pretty good location just off the interstate a little ways, so it's very easy to find. It's not in the downtown area of St. Ignace so you are away from the hustle and bustle. They have a nice fire pit (although it was not used/lit the night we were there which I found strange as it was a gorgeous cool night) Nice patio area. Nice lobby that is very welcoming. Decent breakfast. Friendly staff. Did not check out the pool area as we didn't have time, but you do have to walk outside to get to the indoor pool. Depending where you are this could be a bit of a walk. The place is set up in sections named after trees. We stayed in the "Cedars". This is where things go down hill. Needless to say the room was run down. Stains on the walls, carpet is older, one old cheap picture hanging on the wall. Uncomfortable chairs and small table. Bath Sink was bright yellow counter-top that matched nothing in the room and pretty small. Very small bathroom. I did not shower there as the people with me did and were both scorched by hot water and freezing water as they showered. Guessing this is due to people flushing the toilet in the next room over. A couple good things, the room was clean considering animals are apparently allowed to stay in these rooms. (We had dogs all around us, and the one next door barked quite a bit) No bad smell in the room. The bedding was decent and clean. The pillows were cheap and had no support at all. The beds were the worst beds we've ever slept in. HARD AS A ROCK. If I had booked 2 nights here, I would have moved to another hotel for sure. Basically this place needs some updating. If they update, it would be a nice place to stay over all, but at this point it's not my suggestion.

A larger/older establishment that must be under new management/ownership. Staff could not do enough to cater to us, extremely helpful! The room was outstandingly clean, and appears to have been updated recently.
Breakfast was a pleasant surprise of hot items!
Wireless signal was strong,,, too bad it did not connect to the internet. Staff were able to get us connected through another server, thanks.
A clock of some kind in the room would have been a nice touch ;)
Restauraunt across the road was very worth the walk.
All in all, a great stop over in Sty. Ignace !

Drove over400 miles our yearly family
family vacation. made it two days at the camp sight. it rained both days, and we were getting gamers by the mosquitos. came into town to find a room only to find out it was the weekend of the car show. not only did they work there magic and get us in a room but they found us another room at another motel for the next night, then they had a cancellation and worked us into the cancellation shot. Awesome accommodations, great service, very friendly and efficient staff. indoor pool and spa. This place rocks. thanks for the great memories..
God bless,
Mike

Stayed here for 1 night in April 2014 the outside was kept up. Terrific View. Very Comfortable Mattresses. Great Hot Breakfast. Friendly Staff. Pool was excellent. Very warm which isn't the norm. I really like that.

Room Tip: all rooms have great views

This hotel had a good location, close to the business district, with a spacious lobby. It was a slower time of year for business, so there were not a lot of other guests in town. The staff were cordial and friendly, and the rooms were comfortable. Noise was not an issue.

Room Tip: A great place to stay north of the Mackinac Bridge

Awesome place to bring the family! We had an amazing weekend. Price was great for our family and the owners were incredibly friendly and made us feel right at home.The pool was amazing and warm and the hot tub felt so nice. We can't wait to go back in the summer to use the fire pit and volleyball net. I highly recommend this place for a family vacay!

Room Tip: Patio rooms are amazing during the summer, but the suites worked perfectly for our family of four!

Thanks for the great hospitality during our recent stay! We stayed midweek, my teenage grandkids and my pug, and couldn't have been treated better. We were alone in the hotel due to the odd time we picked to travel but we were given every comfort we could have asked for. The hotel is very clean and has undergone some really nice upgrades. Couldn't really enjoy the outdoor amenities due to the weather but it looked lovely. Beds were comfortable with nice bedding.
