“Another good stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 October 2011

The Budget Host is our favorite lodging business in St Ignace. We normally stay in one of the suites but this trip we reserved a regular 2 queen room. We were given a room on the second floor overlooking the town and bay. The room was large and comfortable. We noticed right away that the TV had been updated to a flat screen. It seemed that some of the TV stations came in with HD reception. The mattress in this room also seemed to sleep much more comfortable that the previous beds we have used in the suites. I appreciated the pillows which seemed to be nicer than in previous visits. The only very minor thing I noticed is that there is not a lot of vanity space located around the bathroom sink which is seperate from the shower & commode. The inroom coffee pot & supplies sit on the counter space next to the sink & take up room. I would not hesitate to continue to recommend the Budget Host to anyone travelling to the U.P.

Room Tip: Suites are located to the back of the hotel overlooking parking and residential houses, they have a...

We love this place. We stay here every year when we are passing through to and from Wisconsin and are never disappointed. The rooms are clean and spacious and do not have that "stale smell" that we've often experienced in other motels. The bed was comfortable and the view from the balcony rooms is spectacular. The free continental breakfast starts early and saves us having to look for a place on the way out of town which we really appreciate. JudiB

Room Tip: Second floor balcony rooms are superb, especially the ones with the private balcony.

We had stopped at the Michigan Visitors Center for information regarding hotels in St. Ignace. While there we picked up a Room Saver's magazine and a recommendation for the Budget Host Inn from one of the visitors. We were told it was clean and the staff was helpful. We found this to be an accurate description. The hotel was well maintained, our room was clean with plenty of towels and a flat screen tv. We were on the second floor and our room opened onto a large shared balcony overlooking the lake. We used our room saver coupon, which entitled us to a room with one queen bed, and our bill was $59.94. There was a continental breakfast available.
It was adequate for our needs and better than some we've had.

This is one of the nicest motels with reasonable prices in which I have had the privilege to stay. It is American owned, quiet, clean, the people were helpful and courteous, and it is close to local attractions. The free breakfast was adequate, better than most.

This is a great CLEAN place to stay. The people are so helpful, kind and we are not just a room number. The pool and hot tub area is very clean. The breakfast is really quite yummy. My husband and I stay here always when we go to St. Ignace.

Room Tip: have stay in a few different rooms (on the main floor). But the front of the building you get a bea...

Thank you for that. Cleanliness is of utmost importance and our staff does an outstanding job. You brought up another good point: that you are not JUST a room number. We have some incredible guests and they become like friends to us.

We have stayed at the Budget Host in St. Ignace many times, and have never been disappointed. It is not a luxury hotel, but it is comfortable and quiet, with friendly, helpful staff. The breakfast provided is tasty: egg disks, sausage, bisquits and gravy, toast, english muffins, cereal, etc. The hotel is close to all of the ferries to the Island, and within walking distance of downtown, with several restaurants; we prefer the Driftwood.

Reservations are easy. If you are a "regular" (two or three times a year), the contact information is kept from visit to visit. Either patio rooms overlooking the lake or suites on the back side are generally available.

I had read the reviews for Budget Host so after camping for a few days, my husband and I were ready for a hot shower and a soft bed. The staff was very friendly and the place was spotless. We were traveling with our two small dogs and so we requested a room with a private balcony as we wanted to sit outside our room to enjoy the views and not disturb anyone else. The view of Lake Huron and the ferrys traveling to Mackinac Island was great. There was a large selection for breakfast the next morning. The price for the room with two queen beds and the private balcony was very reasonable. The beds were comfortable and the room as well as the lobby was very clean. The staff was helpful for suggestions for dinner. We will definately stay here each time we return to the area.

Thank you for the great review. We are happy that you enjoyed the Lake Huron view from your balcony, such a nice way to unwind at the end of the day, relaxing on your balcony with your pets. It is nice to know that you will be a return guest.
