We stayed a couple of nights on our vacation. From the call that I made to make reservations to the check out process everything was fantastic. The staff is very friendly and helpful. This is a pet friendly hotel that treated our four legged family member as a part of our family. The rooms were clean and comfortable. We were up during the tractor show so the hotel was a little noisy the first night but that is to be expected on a very busy weekend. The next night was really quiet. This Inn is on the North side of town so it gets you away from the very busy town. You can walk across the street and enjoy the water, so you do not have to pay waterfront rates to enjoy the waterfront. We definitely will stay again because of the reasonable rates at a fantastic Inn. Staff definitely deserves a thumbs up for making this property the great property that it is. Keep up the great service-from front desk to housekeeping and breakfast bar attendant(everyone).

We stayed at the inn over labor day weekend because we were doing the "Walk the Bridge" and were very pleased with the hotel. The room was clean, the beds were a little too hard but that can be expected. The breakfast was good and diverse, however the breakfast room was very small. I guess everyone came down at once when it opened at 7. The breakfast hours could have been a little earlier, because the walk started at 7, but the breakfast lady told us we could come earlier that they didn't want her to start until 6:30 at the earliest. However the room was opened earlier, but we had to heat everything ourselves. The front desk lady was super nice and even let me call home on her cellphone because our service provider didn't work up there. All and all, when we come back next year I would stay there again, unless I find an earlier breakfast room offering. The pool and hot tub very clean. The Ac did act a little funky
and the other hotel guests kind of partied outside our room, but definitely not the hotels fault.

We stayed at America's Best Value Inn in St. Ignace MI on a holiday weekend. The rooms were very clean. The kids and my husband & I liked the pool and hot tub. It is a very family oriented hotel. Breakfast in the morning; picnic tables outside to eat on. Nice!! I was impressed because it was all of the above and at a reasonable price. We will stay here again!!

This Inn was perfect for our vacation to Mackinac Island! Very clean and comfortable rooms and offers a nice continental breakfast . Not far from town and ferries, quiet and right across the street from the lake with a beautiful view. We liked the location. Staff was very friendly and accomadating. Did I mention the indoor pool with hot tub? Was never too crowded either!! St Ignace offers a lot with less traffic!!

The A/C in the room would stop working sometimes,the bathtub was dirty and not clean.As soon as we walked in,we noticed a "funk" smell in the room and the spiders going around in the bathroom was a turn off as well.We could have spent the same amount of money at a SUPER 8 but it wasn't pet friendly in st. ignace.The beds were super hard and the old school blurry TV needed to be thrown in the trash.We gave up on the room at 3am and left to go home and we will not be coming back here again.

I am very sorry you were dissatisfied with your stay. Our property is serviced monthly to manage insects and spiders. They are attracted to light and really isn't much that can be done about nature's little pests swarming around outside lights. I'm sorry that your room was not as clean as you would have liked. We've taken care of that problem. I hope you can try us again sometime. Thank you.

After reading all the positive reviews of this property my wife booked us a room atthe America's Best Value Inn in St. Ignace for $126.00 (that included taxes and fees. It's summertime in Northern Michagan, so I was ok with the price. There are way more expensive places to stay in St. Ignace, but we were hoping our choice would be amazing. I'm pretty sure we could've made a better choice.

Like one of the other reviewers noted, it's average at best...older decor, smallish rooms. I have a tendency to write only positive reviews, but at my social coordinator's behest, I submit another laundry list of downsides to this particular property. Read all the way to the bottom for what I thought worked out ok here....

1. Carpet was a but older, and the floor in our unit (229) had a divot just off the bathroom side bed (under the carpet) that lead for a bit of speculation as to whether or not we might visit the guests below at some in-oppornute moment.

2. Hair on the shower drain. According to the bathroom inspector, not hers. She doesn't make this kind of thing up.

3. Hard bed. I have to concur with her on this one. For $126 I'm hoping for a pretty awesome bed. This did not bode well for a great night of sleep.

4.. AlC not so great at night. Complaints included not cool enough when set at high.

Nothing enough to complain to the owners/management about, though. If you're in the business you know what keeps 'em coming back, and it seems like this place appeals to a lot of folks. Probably just not a good fit for us.

Ok, on a happier note - (now we'll see who reads all the way to the end) The hot tub at this place is one of the hottest hot tubs I've ever been in - had to be running 115+ The front desk lady said she's turn it down - good service at the front desk, for sure (as many others have mentioned)
Check inn was a breeze...young man who took care of us made sure we were informed that after 11pm any service calls would be handled by the staff who are across the street (they own that property too)
The social atmosphere at this place was cool. There were a lot of bikers there and everyone seemed to be having a good time sitting outside their rooms and generally enjoying the awesome summer weather and themselves.
I'm not sure what happened with the Air Conditioner...it was cool outside and I managed to not freeze...just wanted to get my two cents in here. Everyone's got their own level of comfort when it comes to A/C.... I like it very cold.

Everyone has their own standard for the price paid....that being said, I didn't feel like I got what I paid for here. The sign at the front desk clearly stated that they charge 10-15 dollars more than competing properties and that the extra amenities are worth it.

Harleys are loud when they start up. Sleeping through that can be arduous, but it's summer time in northern michigan, so se la vie!! It's a good sound...:-)

Thank you for staying with us. I wish you had a more pleasant stay . Our air conditioners are controlled with a thermostat and come on and off to stay at a controlled temperature. Everyone has a different preference when it comes to bed comfort, that is why sleep number beds are so popular. I'm glad our staff was friendly and helpful to you. Thanks again for staying with us. I hope you can try us again sometime.
