Reviewed 30 May 2014

My wife and I stayed here for 4 nights and really enjoyed ourselves. Upon checking in we were informed out room was on the first floor. We asked if we could get a floor up higher and the hotel concierge Sonia (Sonja?) went above and beyond to accommodate us. The hotel was booked to capacity so she could have easily just told us no, but instead she worked some magic and was able to arrange us with a room on the 3rd (top) floor. From our room we could see the lake. The room was clean, had a foldout sofa sleeper, mini-fridge, sink, etc. The breakfast was very good. There was a pancake machine, sausage, eggs, biscuits, gravy, usual bagel/bread assortment, cereal. All very good.

The hotel was quiet and the staff was very nice and courteous. The pillows on the beds were not the best, but I'm picky about all hotel pillows (they are never near firm enough). The bed mattress was also fairly soft. The indoor swimming pool was a little cold but it was relaxing after spending a day on the beach. It was nice to have ample parking and the hotel is just a few minutes from downtown. I would definitely recommend people stay at the Holiday Inn.

We stayed here for one night during a motorcycle trip. Fantastic views from our lakeside balcony. Very spacious and clean room. Didn't get to try out the new restaurant next door, but it seemed very busy. Only complaint would be that the railing on our balcony had lots of spiderwebs accompanied by spiders. Overall a very nice hotel and staff.

Room Tip: Lake view rooms are worth the small price difference.

I stayed here overnight due to nearby business meeting.
As a platinum member would have preferred an upgrade to a room with a balcony overlooking Lake Michigan, however was informed at check-in that the hotel was booked. The room that I got was clean and spacious, equipped with a microwave and fridge-and best of all was quiet with a comfortable bed, to ensure a good night's sleep. Next door is a very good steak/seafood restaurant with outdoor seating-so convenient when I didn't want to get back in my car and drive. The breakfast offered both hot and cold choices, and breakfast attendant was helpful and friendly. The overall facility appeared clean and well maintained. I didn't get a chance to use the pool or workout room. This hotel had everything I needed for this trip and of course is nearby DT and the beach and other attractions. I would definitely stay here again when I return to the area.

Dear chickie-b,

Thank you for reviewing our hotel. We are sorry that we didn't have a suite to upgrade you to. We do try to do this when we have availability. We hope that when you come again next time that we get the chance to meet that request. Also, if you would like to call ahead to request a certain upgrade if available, we will try to meet that request. We hope to have you back again very soon!

Stayed at this hotel for our one year anniversary. Really enjoyed our room with a jacuzzi! Very spacious, comfortable bed, tub worked great, micro/fridge/sink also included. Hotel is a little drive from downtown but has a beautiful view! Breakfast was good and checkout was 12:30 for members! Definitely recommend!

This hotel is in a great spot and I am sure that the rooms overlooking lake Michigan would be cool. We traveled with 3 small kids so we got the Kid Suites room and our kids love the bunk beds and having their own TV in their room. The pool was as expected and breakfast was great. It is close to everything. I am sure it is crazy in the summer.

Great location and nice rooms. Family friendly. Pool was a bit small but kids still had a great time. Breakfast attendant extremely friendly. Nice to have a fridge and microwave in every room. So close to Lake Michigan and DT St Joe with great restaurants and shopping.

Room Tip: They do have some rooms with balconies and views of Lake Michigan.
