“Don't judge a book by it's cover!”
Reviewed 26 August 2010

This place is very cute, on the outside. We stayed there because it always seemed like a cute, Mom and Pop place- and they accept pets. We opened the door and at first it seemed very northwoods like. After further inspection, the carpet was worn, dirty and overall- we did'nt let our small dog sleep on it. When we got out of the shower- which was equally disgusting with tiles falling off the wall and the caulking moldy- we put our shoes on before stepping off the bathmat, YUCK! We would have went elsewhere but we did not get there til the wee hours of the morning. After check out- we found much more delightful accomadations at a more reasonable price. Oh- the property is for sale, at a price of $315,000 ...it would cost another $100,000 to renovate this place. STAY AWAY!

Reviewed 3 August 2008

We needed a real cheap bed for a couple of nights to go to Mackinac Island. The property was just that. It is an old building, but it has been well maintained for its age. Beds are basic and decor is northwoods with some odd touches, but it is clean. The shower was a little scary, I felt like I was camping rather then being at a motel. It has that bare cabin feel. But there is expanded cable and a nice little breakfast. The owners were very sweet. The property is "cute". It has a private beach, but don't go there. I think all the "beaches" in the area are long overgrown these days and this particular spot was surrounded by scary looking cabins. Saint Ignace in general seems run down and tired. This was a nice launching spot to get out of town on the ferry and it was super cheap ($53). The owners take pride in the place, they had little pansies outside each room. There is a gas station/general store next door that sells beer, wine, pizza. The location is far out past the main area of town, but again, stay for the price and cleanliness, nothing else.
