    « Awesome Hotel »

    Stayed in the Ontario Building with a jacuzzi suite. Very roomy, awesome view, balcony and friendly staff. I will be returning to this property again. Close to restaurants, ferry access and Macinaw Island.

    « Wonderfully consistent »

    My sister and I stay at this motel every year the first or second week in October. As a matter of fact, we have already made reservations for 2017---that's how much we enjoy our time there. The facilities are modern and well cared for, and the staff is always friendly and efficient. But most importantly, the rooms in the Ontario building all have private balconies less than 20 yards from Lake Huron!

    « Great hotel and great customer service! »

    We booked this hotel through a 3rd party, and we booked a lake view king room. We didn't know what building we were in until we checked in. We were assigned room 346 in the Ontario building. First, I need to give a big shout out to Ronn. I sent several questions via email before our trip, and Ronn was so awesome at getting back to me quickly. We had back and forth correspondence several times before our trip, and he was very patient with this worrier :) Seriously, he was amazing! I didn't get to meet him until our last morning, and it was only briefly. But he was as friendly in person as he was through email. I also spoke with another person once we were already in the room. I had sent Ronn an email after we checked in, asking about lake view vs. partial lake view rooms. Ronn was off site when I sent the email, but within 15 minutes of me sending it, another employee called me in our room to ensure everything was ok. He genuinely felt bad that we didn't get the full lake view that I thought we requested. He said he could switch us to another room, but it would be a queen instead of a king, and that would only be for 2 nights. They would have to move us again for the 3rd and 4th night. I explained to him that I wasn't upset about our room, just confused about the description. I didn't want to move, but I was super impressed with the speed that Ronn and the other associate tried to take care of the situation. I've really never had such good customer service at a hotel before. I can't remember the other employee's name; I think it started with an R, maybe Raleigh? I'm bad with names, but I remember how friendly he was. The room we were in was on the top floor of the Ontario building, room 346. It had very high ceilings, which makes the room seem bigger. It was right off the elevator (which was nice for us and not noisy at all). It was a very spacious room with a king bed, dresser, mini fridge, big flat screen tv, several chairs, and tables, and a balcony. We had plenty of room for our pack and play (see pictures). The vanity was separate from the bathroom, which we prefer. Opposite the vanity was a good sized closet. The mini fridge was under the counter in the vanity. The bathroom had one of those curved shower rods, which makes the shower feel bigger. Everything was very clean, and housekeeping was great everyday; we were there for 4 nights (don't forget to tip your housekeeping!). There is not as much parking as I thought there would be. We were fine, but we also visited in October. I can't imagine how crowded it gets in the summer time. There is only 1 luggage cart, so make sure to snag it! We didn't know about it when we were taking everything up to the room, and we had a ton of stuff! My husband had to make 3 trips. But we saw someone using it while we were unloading, so that's when we knew it existed. We made sure to use it when we checked out. They have a great beach and lawn area. Yes, there is goose poop. But there is goose poop anywhere there are a lot of geese. It wasn't a big deal for us, though I know some other reviewers complained. We tried to avoid stepping in it when visiting the beach, but we just washed the bottom of our shoes when we went back into the hotel. There is a play area for children that we didn't use, but it looked like a nice play ground. There is a bonfire area that is very nice. They have nightly bonfires and smores at 7:30pm (weather dependent of course). We checked in on a very rainy day, so they didn't have the bonfire that night. The other nights we never made it back to the hotel in time. On our last night, they did have it, but we were so tired and needed to pack that we didn't go. We did see it from our balcony though, and it looked like fun. A hot breakfast was included in the room price. It was excellent, but beware, it can get pretty busy, especially with the tour buses rolling through. There are 2 seating areas, but one of them is on an enclosed porch, so it is not really used on a cold October morning. We tried to get to breakfast by 8am every morning, and even then it was sometimes packed. On the menu: eggs, sausage patties, waffles, bagels, toast, cereal, sausage and gravy (every other day), biscuits, breakfast potatoes (every other day, opposite the sausage and gravy), milk, juice, water, coffee, tea, and pastries. I really enjoyed our breakfast every day, and the employees are always present replenishing. Please be nice to them; they are trying to keep up with high traffic. Overall, I would stay here again in a heartbeat!

    Very nice place to stay,good breakfast included. We stayed in family suite, had three bedrooms and two bathrooms. Good for family with kids One of the bedroom did not have a window. The rooms have TV's,two small fridges. Nice view from the balcony.

    « Mackinac Island Trip »

    Stayed for a night at the hotel while my trip on 22nd Oct. it was a good hotel with all basic amenities and on the bank of the lake. It has very nice view and would recommend. I have reached St. Ignace in the morning. Hotel had arranged ferry tickets at discounted rates. You have option to park at hotel or in ferry parking. Both options are free. I chose to park at hotel. Ferry Co. has free pickup and drop option. There are so many restaurants serving food if you are going in season. I went in 3rd week of Oct which was almost end of the season so limited food options. Overall it was very good experience.

    « Beautiful and fun! »

    GET THE LAKEVIEW. you have no choice. It was absolutely beautiful and worth it. Rooms were clean and had a mini fridge. Another plus... Breakfast. One of the few hotels that I know (I travel a lot too) who offer complimentary HOT breakfast. First day was sausage, eggs, potatoes and other stuff too. It wasn't far at all from the bridge. Parking was sufficient. Have to park on the grass for check in though (it's easier). Friendly and great staff! Would highly recommend.

    « Mixed feelings »

    The room had one of the best TVs and cable channel selection of any hotel I have every stayed in. In addition, they had one of the best free breakfasts I've ever had. That being said. At breakfast it seemed like the entire town was there, so I was curious whether they open their meals to the community for $. Also, no microwave in the room, which is very bizarre. Not just in our room, in no rooms. Also, parking was very tight - very tough to get in and out. I'm assuming this hotel is rated #1 in trip adviser because the other choice are even less average. If you need anything in Mackinac City it will cost you $8 round trip to cross the bridge. So if we went back, we'd likely stay on the Mackinaw City side of the bridge.

    « Great room and rate »

    This hotel was top notch. The room (Jacuzzi suite) and view (lake) were fabulous. We both thought the breakfast was outstanding with a lot of different options. I booked this at Best Westerns website and it was also easy to use. I recommend this hotel to all.

    We stayed at this hotel once before and decided we wanted to go back for our 40th anniversary. The buildings and grounds are extremely well kept (beautiful) and the staff is very pleasant and helpful. I would recommend this hotel to anyone and plan to return for another visit in the future. I give it the most, five stars!

    « Anniversary Get Away »

    This is a large complex with separate buildings. My husband and I stayed in the Ontario Building which is closest to Lake Huron. We had a great view of the Lake to watch the sunrise in the morning, or watch the ferry come and go from Mackinaw Island. The room was spacious, clean and updated. It is a walk uphill to breakfast or the pool if that is a concern. Breakfast had a great variety of hot and cold items. Good coffee as well. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Dinner options are not within walking distance, but only a short drive. Loved our stay.

    « Fantastic Fall Getaway... »

    From the moment we checked in, we were pleased with the property. Room was clean, well maintained, and very nicely decorated. Million dollar view, welcomed by geese and swans. Bonfire at night, fantastic breakfast in the mornings. Dining area very welcoming and accessible. Outdoor and indoor pools. Thanks for such a nice place to stay. Great Location! Highly recommend!!!??

    Shower water temp. not regulated. If you have kids be careful of the water temp. WiFi not secured. Exercise room not convient location. I would stay here again. When booking/checkin ask for the "Lake Superior" building; it is the most convient location.

    « Can't miss when you book at the Harbor Pointe Best Western »

    My husband and I stayed in St. Ignace as our jumping off point for all the northern Michigan sight seeing. Having a room that was just a few feet from Lake Huron made it feel like it was one of our destinations. Some might think the rooms are a tad bit dated but ours was clean and very comfortable. We had a couple of recommendations from the staff for places to eat and they were awesome. If I am ever in that area again I won't hesitate to go back there to stay.

    « Would stay here again »

    The room was spacious and the queen beds comfortable. It is easy to get to and for the money was really nice. Room was quiet. Breakfast was quite a nice surprise. We would stay here with the family anytime we were in the area.

    « Best in area »

    We've stayed twice now at Harbour Pointe. It is in pristine condition. The staff is friendly, welcoming and efficient. The location is unequaled. Right on Lake Huron, you can see the sunrise or the moonrise. They have balcony rooms 35feet from the water. You have nothing between you. It feels like the balcony of a cruise ship. We'd like to come every month for the full moon. They, however, close for the winter and won't reopen until April.

    « This is really the Best Western »

    This hotel has large rooms with great balconies. Try to get an East facing balcony and you can see the sun rise over beautiful Lake Huron. Amenities include both indoor and outdoor swimming pools and nightly fires in the fire pit with marshmallow roasting and s'mores during the warmer months. The free breakfast has both hot and cold options with extensive choices. You can sit inside or on a tented outdoor patio to enjoy your breakfast. I would definitely stay here again.

    « Clean, great view, breakfast, great people »

    Very nice. Way better than expected. This is a fairly new property. We got a room overlooking the lake. It was very large with refrigerator. No microwave. Ice machine by front entrance. We would definitely stay here again.

    « Amazing hotel with a beautiful view. »

    We stayed at this hotel for our vacation and it was amazing. We were welcomed by a very friendly staff and the view of the lake from our room was breathtaking. I would recommend this hotel to everyone who wanted a perfect fall getaway.

    « Great location! »

    We stayed in the Ontario building and our location couldn't have been better! We really enjoyed the sunrise from our patio. Our room was clean and the staff very friendly. My only concern with this property is security. Very poor lighting in the parking lot, no lock on main exterior door (a must in my mind as the staff is located in another building), and no functioning locks on the screen doors. The last would have been nice as we wanted to enjoy the sound of the water from our room but had to utilize the lock on inner glass door instead.

    « Nice place to stay. I'd go back »

    Right off the bat the front desk people were very nice. Our room was clean with good furniture and bedding. We also had a great view of the lake. The breakfast was complimentary and had a decent selection of items to choose from. The nightly fire and s'mores in the large fire pit by the lake is a nice touch also. That is weather permitting though.

    « Very Nice Place to Stay! »

    We stayed in 200 in the Huron section. It had a balcony with a good view of the lake. It was a hotel type room and was very clean. Breakfast was good and the staff was exceptionally nice. The only negative,and reason for a four rating, instead of a five; was the beds were small and not real comfortable. Otherwise everything was good!

    « great hotel »

    « One of the finest places to stay in Michigan Upper Peninsula »

    We found the hotel to be very clean and a staff that wanted you to be fully satisfied. They expressed their interest in you by maintaining an exceptionally clean place. The room was very clean, bathroom was clean, the breakfast eating area was very clean with the help of two and sometime 3 people wiping the food counter and tables and making sure the food containers were at least half full with food. Their presence at the check- in counter, and breakfast area assured me that they wanted a hotel with high standards to meet the needs of the people.

    « Wonderful View, Right on Lake Huron! »

    Our room was in a building close to the water. Our day had been a long one with lots of miles, so we wanted to retreat to our room instead of go out for dinner. The lobby staff recommended a great pizza joint about a mile away, we were not disappointed! We had a great view of boats on the water, and in the evening the staff built a bonfire in a fire pit in the park-like grass area between our room and the shore. Guests were treated to Smores and some great conversations. Traveling with a disabled family member was made slightly difficult by our "first floor" room, which was slightly below grade and meant dealing with stairs (our building had no elevator). On the plus side, our room included a separate bedroom for the disabled party, so we could continue to visit with other guests and not worry about waking our relative. The breakfast was fairly typical but well-stocked and plentiful. We would stay again!

    « Wonderful Views »

    From the time we checked in and until we checked out things at this motel could not have been better. From the check in staff to the house keeping staff it was outstanding. The cleanlyness of our room Could not have been better. The grounds are keept immaculate. If you want a place to kick back and enjoy the bonfire every night at 7:30 and great amenities. We will definitely be coming back. That is the best review I can give any place.

    « whinning, humming, grinding turbo pump overhead »

    I can't believe it but about 30 minutes ago we heard water running and then a pump came on. The noise is unbelievably loud to the point we checked to see what type of equipment was running outside only to find nothing. When I called the desk the clerk said it was probably a jacuzzi running in the room above us and if it didn't stop later tonight he would take a walk past the room and see if that is what happening and if it went on too long he would give the room a call. This is mid October and town is dead. There are 3 cars in the parking lot and this is a very large complex. 1. Why would we be placed under a room with a jacuzzi (which they have apparently received other complaints about) when there are many available rooms, 2. Why would the designer put an extremely noisy piece of equipment above another room? 3. Why doesn't management give a hoot?

    5
    « Excellent Experience »

    We stayed here one night after returning from Mackinac Island. The room was very clean and comfy, including a fabulous picture on the TV. The front desk employees were very nice at check in. Explained everything regarding the facility including the bonfire which is located on the property, it's a nice perk as the hotel is located right on the water. A restaurant suggestion was also given. The complimentary breakfast was pretty good, had a nice selection, the only drawback is the amount of tables is not enough to accommodate all of it's guests. Check out was hassle free, again the front desk girls were very personable. Overall, if we visit Mackinac Island again we will return to St. Ignace since it's not as crowded at Mackinaw City.

    « An enjoyable 2 nights »

    Hotel was easy to find and we had no problems with Check-in, room allocation and cleanliness, car parking, room size and facilities, wifi. Breakfast had reasonable choice of hot and cold items, in fact all was good apart from the paper plates and cheap plastic cutlery. The only concern we had was the noise of the plumbing in adjacent room and the one above us. Overtime someone ran a tap and shower or flushed the toilet we could hear it. The room above us ran a bath at 5:30 a.m. each morning which woke us. In addition there was an intermittent hum from possibly an electric motor, not our a/c unit, that could be heard day and night. Not sure whether a/c would have been needed during our stay as the temperature was neither Hot or Cold. The reception staff had never had these queries mentioned before. Apart from this is was a very good place to stay. Convenient for the ferries to Mackinac Island

    « Awesome place, everything was great! »

    This place is very nice! It's almost like a small campus, which is great as long as the weather is decent. We stayed in the Huron building, on the bottom floor, which is one level lower in the front of the building, but opens up to a great view of the lake with sliding doors and easy shoreline and bonfire access. The sunrises were phenomenal! The indoor pool is very nice, as well as the hot tub. The breakfast was awesome, pretty much everything you could ask for, with plenty of seating. The staff was very friendly. This is definitely THE place to stay in St. Ignace.

    « Great stay again »

    We stayed here in May 2015 and found it very nice then. We decided to come back and again they are very accommodating. Our room is very nice with a view of the lake. The poor staff here have a hard time keeping the Canadian gueese off the property and they make such a mess! We would definitely recommend staying here if you are in the area.

    « Clean & Friendly »

    Great hotel to stay at. The view from the lakefront rooms is absolutely spectacular. The only reason I'm not rating this hotel as Excellent is because the breakfast is located in another building. If you want the lakefront, you are furthest from the breakfast and it is a bit of a walk to get there.

    « Nice place but »

    Nice new hotel on the lake, lovely view. The layout was all exterior entrances with stairway access. Not a problem on this trip but in bad weather or on a longer trip with more baggage it would have been inconvenient. Having to leave the room and walk outside in order to use the pool or have breakfast was unpleasant.

    5
    « Beautiful Setting »

    This hotel has a building named after each of the great lakes and was full due to two seniors bus tours, however, we were in the rooms (more like cottages) right near the shore of Lake Superior...a great view and you could walk down to the water. There was also a fire pit with benches that you could sit on. Very clean and comfortable. Only thing that was required was a microwave in the room. Staff was very pleasant and will come get you in a golf cart to transport you to the breakfast room.

    « Great Place To Stay »

    Everything good thing said in the description about this place is true. Nice clean rooms with friendly staff. The breakfast was excellent and we had a balcony view of the lake to add to it. We stayed in the 200 section of the Huron building for a night while we visited Mackinaw Island. Very close to everything! The reason for the four, instead of a five rating, was the beds. They are the smaller beds and were a little lumpy.... otherwise we lived it!

    « Very accommodating »

    We recently stayed here overnight. We spent the day on Mackinac island then spent the night here. They were so accommodating. We stopped here first thing in the morning. It was our 40th Anniversary, so we asked for a room with a view. The room was amazing! In the Ontario building, right on the lake! Beautiful view, very quiet, very clean. They also offered us a package deal discount which saved us money on all the things we wanted to do on Mackinac Island ( the ferry ride, the carriage ride, and lunch at the Grand Hotel). We didn't swim in the pool, but it looked very nice. Breakfast in the morning was awesome. Scrambled eggs, with salsa and cheese and onion to top it off, sausage, waffles , cereal, fruit,muffins, toast, juice, etc etc. Would definitely stay here again. Maybe on our 45th??

    The hotel is very clean, well maintained, and has excellent staff. They serve a lovely breakfast manned by smiling ladies. The morning view from the Ontario building (overlooking Mackinac Island) is amazing, as is the lake breeze. St. Ignace is a quiet community that offers access to both the upper and lower peninsula activities and attractions.

    Nice variety of rooms w/ lake view. Very clean and comfortable. Nice, friendly staff. Great breakfast. Fair pricing. There are many places to stay in St. Ignace along the water, this place is quite large w/ several buildings on the property. Most rooms have either a full or partial view of Lake Huron. Out door built in pool and a fire pit. Family friendly, group friendly, couples friendly or for business...I/We are repeat customers.

    The room was wonderful (the bed was very comfortable), the staff was helpful and pleasant, loved siting in the hot tub outside and watching the stars.

The morning breakfast was tasty and staff was cleaning and refreshing constantly.

    We love the beautiful campus with the spacious, clean, and well-appointed rooms at the lakeshore. The slosh of waves on the shore is a fine lullaby. The breakfast is far above average motel fare and the eating area is spacious and handles many people. On previous visit we enjoyed the outdoor pool. The service is friendly and welcoming and helpful. Our daughter found and recommended it. We've been here twice and will be back.

    « Nice lodging facility but ask for first floor room »

    We stayed at this hotel for one night before taking the ferry over to Mackinac Island. It is a nice facility, spread out among 3 or 4 buildings on the property. Complimentary breakfast was very nice with a variety of options. In addition, there were three employees re-filling food and cleaning up, so things were always readily available. Main problem areas we experienced was that the rooms were in a building down a hill from the main building so one had to walk up the hill in the rain (the day we were there) to go to breakfast. Also, we had a second floor room and they did not have an elevator so we had to carry heavy luggage up the stairs. Consider asking for a first floor room if you decide to make reservations here

    This was our 3rd stay at this hotel in the last two years. 3 different rooms, all clean, well appointed and comfortable. Check in was a breeze, and the desk clerk had good recommendations for places to eat. We stayed in the Ontario building, which is in the back and very quiet no road noise at all. My wife liked the floors with the attractive carpet pattern. She has long hair and the shower head made it easy to wash her hair. We will definitely stay here on our next trip to the UP.

    « Nice Place All Around!! »

    Except for the higher place (worth it) we would have stayed every night during our time up north. Loved being right on the beach and the grounds was very well taken care of. The hot tub wasn't working and we weren't sure if it affected the pool too, but signs telling us this and apologizing were posted. All areas were very clean. Beds were comfy and nice to have a fridge in the room! Stayed in the 2 dbl beds "motel" down near the shore, separate from the main hotel and it was great!

    « Nice hotel, exceptional staff »

    Stayed here for a short weekend and the hotel met all of our expectations. The hotel is set up in a resort like fashion with multiple buildings around the property. It is about a quarter mile away from the ferry docks and this made for an easy walk. We stayed in the Superior building which had three floors. The rooms faced the pool and had angled porches to give a lake view. The room was clean, comfortable beds and pillows. The room had a small refrigerator which was nice for drinks and left over meals. The only issue with the rooms was they were a little noisy as you could hear the neighbors shower and movement in the halls. Breakfast was served each morning in the main lobby and had plenty of food including cereal, breads, eggs, waffles and fruit. This was the middle of September and it was nice that they still had the outdoor pool and hot tub open, along with the indoor pool and hot tub. There was a fire pit near the lake and the hotel provided fire wood. What really made this hotel special was the staff. All were friendly, helpful and provided great service. Miranda at the front desk was especially helpful during our stay.

    « Wonderful »

    This was a cozy, clean, friendly, reasonably priced hotel with easy access to the ferries to Mackinaw Island. We were right on the shores of Lake Huron and enjoyed free breakfast each morning and a cozy bonfire with roasting marshmallows each evening. We met many interesting fellow travelers around that fire and shared tips and ideas for sightseeing in this area as well as future trips. Indoor and outdoor pools were available. Well done, Best Western. We are never disappointed whenever stay with you. St. Ignace is a very welcoming community.

    This hotel has 4 large buildings and motel style units. It is right on Lake Huron with many grassy areas and a beach which must be shared with the Canadian Geese and Gulls. Weather permitting they have bon fires at night with marshmellow roasts. A plentiful breakfast in the main building. The outdoor pool is heated. Very clean and spacious rooms.

    « Exceptional »

    Everything about this hotel was exceptional. I highly recommend staying here. Our room was super clean, had a great view of the lake, and the staff was well organized, knowledgable, and professional. This was the best hotel on our two week vacation to Quebec and Maine.

    Beautiful lake views from all rooms. Amazing well kept grounds. Informative, helpful staff. I would recommend people staying at this property and going to Mackinac Island for the day instead of staying on the pricey island properties.

    « Wonderful Hotel, Beautiful Views. »

    Stayed here for 2 nights in September, for my 30th birthday. It was a very nice hotel, the rooms were very clean. Beds were very comfortable. And we had a view of the lake and Mackinac Island which was amazing. I loved the room with two double beds, and king size bed in a little adjoining room. The free breakfast was also good, and staff was helpful and really nice. Would definitely stay here again.

    « BEST HOTEL IN MacKinac Island area »

    From what I saw in Mackinac City and in St Ignace this was the best hotel in the area. It has a number of different bldgs. We ended up in the older building but the staff had it shining like new. Kudos to the housekeeping staff. It looks out on the lake. At night they have a smores party and bonefire. Breakfast had lots of choices. This hotel is used by tour buses so things can get crowded at times. Staff was friendly. I would stay here again if I was in the area. Close to the ferries for Mackinac Island.

    « Nice enjoyable stay »

    Stayed here for 2 nights to visit Mackinac Island. Perfect spot overlooking Lake Huron. Very close to the ferries and lots of restaurants nearby. Service was great, everyone on the staff was super friendly and helpful. Hot breakfast was included with eggs, sausages, waffles and the usual fare. Just a quick note: we had a "2 room suite" which based on the description, I assumed to be 2 separate bedrooms with 2 full baths, but the room arrangement is a bit unusual. When you enter, it is a large room with 2 queen beds (and a full bath). To the side is a smaller room (with a sliding door) with another queen bed and full bath. There is no door to separate the main room from the smaller room (other than the sliding door to the smaller room). It's perfect for families but a bit awkward for couples.

    « Relaxing Stay »

    This hotel offered quite a few amenities. Our room was direct lakefront, large and spacious. The breakfast was the usual hot breakfast fare. The front office staff was very helpful in getting us reservations for the ferry to Mackinac Island and the carriage tour on the island. They called the ferry service to arrange for free pick up at the hotel. The hotel is actually walking distance to the docks.

    « OK for 1 night. »

    The motel was fine - stayed one night going over to Mackinac Island. Being in a heavy tourist area it was slightly overpriced, but it met our needs. It was very close to all 3 ferry locations and a number of fairly good restaurants.

    « Brand new, spotlessly clean, friendly staff. »

    We booked a water-view room and got a second-floor room in the Ontario building, with our balcony directly facing Lake Superior only yards away - beautiful! The property is new and nice, and nicely kept. Staff started a bonfire and provided marshmallows for roasting. (Note to management: you need longer roasting sticks to prevent scorched hands!) Front desk staff gave us a dinner recommendation that turned out to be excellent. Standard breakfast fare including some hot items. The only disappointing thing was the thin walls and floors. We could hear our upstairs neighbors walking around and opening and closing their sliding door. We could hear our next-door neighbors talking well into the evening, and then we could hear one of them snoring All.Night.Long. It's a shame it wasn't built for better privacy.

    « Great location!! »

    Because we booked close to our travel date we ended up in St Ignace instead of Mackinaw City. What a stroke of luck. We were able to walk to Star Ferry to go to Mackinac Island and also to dinners. Staff helpful and bonfire looked great from our lakeside room but we were way too tired after walking and biking the island. Breakfast plentiful although we did not care for the eggs or coffee. Because St Ignace is smaller the ferries weren't jammed up and lines shorter. We loved our location and when we go back it will be to this hotel.

    Very nicely appointed hotel on the water of Lake Huron. Short walk to downtown and ferry. We could see the fireworks from our small balcony.

The room was clean and had enough outlets for charging technology.

    « Ideal place to relax and enjoy the lake »

    Very nice place to stay (we've been here several times). It's a little pricey, but worth it. In general, the staff is excellent. The rooms are nice (though the faucet in the bathroom needs updating). My only complaint ... in spite of the hotel's "no smoking on the property" policy, I repeatedly ran into STAFF who were smoking by the laundry room. With our allergies, that is an issue. The management was good about the problem, but the staff who smoked there were not so nice about it.

    We stayed here on on way to Mackinac Island. Our tour group had bbq pork and chicken buffet for dinner. All was very good. We went to the marshmallow roast and 8:00 pm and sat around the nice fire by the lake. The room had a good view of Lake Huron, nice size room. The breakfast buffet had scrambled eggs, sausage, toppings for the eggs, waffle irons, yogurt, fruits, etc. we sat in the covered deck area which had clear vinyl on the sides to protect us from the cool breeze. They even had a golf cart shuttle for those that needed assistance getting to the breakfast area. The staff was very friendly and helpful.

    « Viewing was Excellent »

    Our stay was uneventful - which is good, this meant that everything was as it should be. The view was beautiful and the amenities were excellent. The area around St. Ignace has many attractions and there was no way to see everything available. It is incredible to me that my husband and I take a vacation each year in Michigan (since 1998) and we have not come to an end of the available amazing places Michigan has to offer.

    Very clean room, ammenities are awesome, the staff was great. The comfort was great, the breakfast spread was great. Great view of the lake and Mackinac Island. The grounds were well kept , the lawn was mowed, the parking area and driveways were well kept up. The buildings exteriors were clean, the dining area was very clean and the staff kept the food stocked for the people staying there. I would recommend this place. The only challenging aspect was the price of the room. I thought it could be a little less expensive than what we paid.

    « Really, a Best Western Resort »

    There is no finer place to stay in Saint Ignace than Harbour Pointe. Due to the layout of the grounds and the excellent staff, you feel more as though you are at a resort, not a hotel. The down side of your stay will be when you have to leave this northern gem in the UP. For anyone interested in astronomy, or just being able to look at the stars, Harbor Pointe is a great choice! The lighting of the lots is not overbearing and the lamps have covers to point the light down, not allowing it to pollute the beautiful night sky. You can sit by the pool on a clear night and look up at the heavens!!

    « More of a resort than hotel... »

    Stayed one night at a hefty price while in the Mack area. This place is huge with multiple buildings and amenities. Unfortunately we did not have time to use amenities as much as we would've wanted. Things that we found positive during our stay -- clean grounds and room, nice pool & hot tub area, fire pit near lake, shuttle to casino and discount tickets for ferry to island. Not so positive...you're on the northern end of a lot of the town so walking back to dinner or retail shops would've been a hike, the lake view was nice but our room hardly was lake view as we looked out over the grounds down to the lake. It was an expensive, in season one night stay. I'd consider going back but maybe off season and staying for a few nights.

    This was a lovely resort, although the rooms are a bit dated. Lovely outdoor pool and huge hot tub overlook Lake Huron. Great views of the lake from our room. There are several different buildings at this resort. All have great views of Lake Huron. The breakfast was the usual; they made sure coffee was fresh.

    « Once Again...Our Favorite St. Ignace Hotel »

    After having issues at several other hotels in the area, we tried the Best Western a few years back and won't stay anywhere else. This year, we knew what to expect, and still we were wowed by the small details. Our room for Labor Day Weekend was beautiful- clean, wonderfully located, and was a perfect spot for viewing Sat night fireworks from our front door. The outdoor pool and hot tub made for a a relaxing afternoon...we didn't want to travel through the rest of the UP...so we decided to just hang back and enjoy the hotel. Despite being at capacity, it wasn't crowded feeling or noisy and still had the family, friendly feel. At night we enjoyed the indoor pool/hot tub and it was great as well. The next morning at breakfast, I was wowed again. The breakfast options were plentiful, there was ample seating, and despite being a packed hotel, there were several staff attending to the food and needs. Personally, I am a recent gluten free convert, and while many of their normal options are gluten free (eggs, potatoes, sausage, yogurt, fruit) they had signs displayed that they had special gluten free options. I asked one of the attendants about it, and she came out with special gluten free bars (expensive ones) and gladly offered me 2 of them saying "you gotta have one for later!" (They also had special cereal too). She was genuinely happy to serve her guests- she didn't seem overworked or snippy because they had a packed hotel and she had been clearly working for several hours. She was overly happy and energetic, and offered suggestions of fun things to do and see in the area....and it was refreshingly wonderful to see someone genuinely pleased to help people in their job. Yes, it was just a gluten free granola bar....among all the other full breakfast options (waffles, Danishes, muffins, cereal, etc as well), but to me it showed that this hotel goes above and beyond to please their guests...and their staff is happy to work there. The front desk staff works well as a concierge of the area- they can book discount ferry tickets, buffet lunches on the island, and other trips and tours in the area. Definitely not a service to be overlooked. As we were checking out, we heard the front desk staff helping obvious newbies to the area get the most out of their trip- I felt like she went above and beyond...again, on a super busy weekend. This couple in front of us had her book a full day of festivities going to the island, lunch, a carriage ride, and tours of the Fort, and she organized it all for them so they easily knew what to expect and plan for. I will say my only complaint of this hotel isn't a complaint against them...it's against all of the hotels in the area in Labor Day weekend. It's the prices. $300+ for a room per night is steep...but $300 is the going rate at any of the name brand chain motels. Someone in our group decided to "save some money" and opted to pay $200/night to stay at the Aurora Borealis...and she sent us pics of the room...the floors were dirty, it was old, smelled of smoke despite being a non-smoking room, and had no amenities or breakfast. Clearly, you get what you pay for....and we'll gladly return to this hotel! Thanks Best Western for making our last weekend of the summer one of the best yet!

    « Overpriced and poor bed »

    I was very disappointed in this hotel. When you read a description of a hotel you visualize what you are going to get. Usually close, but this hotel was not even close. The hotel/motel is old and not convent to the lobby for breakfast unless you want to drive to the "free" breakfast.

    « Great hotel, great view »

    We stayed 2 nights and had a corner room in the Ontario building. The views were amazing. Two windows, both looking out on Lake Huron and Mackinac Island. The room was very large and clean. We need extra floor space for our special needs daughter and we got it. Breakfast was OK, but the walk up the hill was tough in the morning. The only issue, and it was not controllable by the hotel, we're the tiny gnats. Hotel left a note in our room not to open windows. At least they were aware and told us! Overall, great stay.

    We are Hilton Honors members and were worried because St. Ignace did not have a Hilton property, so we used the AAA Guidebook and found the Harborpointe listing. We were delighted with our experience at this Best Western. The grounds and buildings were beautiful, the staff was friendly, and the location was perfect for visiting several places in the Upper Peninsula. This hotel was superior to many of the Hilton properties we have stayed in over the years. I'll be checking the Best Western website before our next trip!

    Right on Lake Michigan and you can see Mackinac Island from most of the property. Has an indoor and outdoor pool and hot tubs. They were great. Massive fire pit with chairs and every night they start the fire around 8:30 pm and supply marsh mellows and large forks to have roasted marsh mellows. It was a great place to meet and talk with other guests. The one night we saw the northern lights which was fantastic. I have no complaints at this property. Staff was awesome as well. You even get some discount on tickets.

Only a 45 second drive to the docks for ferry to Mackinac. Really a nice facility!

    « One Of The Best In St. Ignace »

    We stayed one night and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The room was very large and impeccably clean. Hotel size fridge, large screen TV and our room had a balcony that overlooked the pool and had a partially obstructed (trees) view of the lake. A simple breakfast bar was available with all of the staples expected. Everything was hot and fresh. There are two large rooms for seating and the entire area is clean. At night there was a fire pit near the water with wood provided along with everything needed to make a killer Smore. Plenty of seating around the pit. Centrally located and very near one of the boat docks, Shepler's I believe. The room was economically priced and quite likely under priced given we were there at the height of tourist season. Worth a visit if you are looking to pamper yourself a bit when in town.

    We needed a stop over place because we have kids. Trip advisor #1 rated, oh really. I would agree 100%. The front desk staff was very nice and helpful. The lobby was very clean with a view of the indoor pool. There are 2 pools and 2 hot tubs. The pool area was very clean and stocked full with towels. The outdoor pool was lite up at night with led lights. The pool water color was fun and the kids had a blast. The grounds are well kept and the rooms are extremely clean. The buildings are not connected and the pools are a walk. It is a mini campus layout with lots of build choices. The beds we had were doubles, but I didn't want to pay for queens. My choice. We will return. Thank you best western.

    « Clean, quiet motel »

    Standard breakfast but you have to walk to office building since this has several motel buildings. Office will give you a golf cart ride to breakfast if you can't walk to office building. Good coffee. Breakfast items should be spread apart more so there isn't so much congestion in one area. No microwave in room but a very small refrigerator. AC kept turning off by itself after a few hours so no air circulation in room in the middle of the night. Room had tiny bottles of shampoo and conditioner which they added new bottles second day. Didn't give us any new bars of soap the entire 4 days we were there, however. Bonfire each night by the lake. Didn't see a swimming beach but didn't actually go down to water. Too many geese and sea gulls for that. Not too many restaurant or shopping choices close by. Ferry to Mackinac Island a few blocks away. Not sure any of the buildings have elevators so choose ground floor if you can't take the stairs. Michigan building looked really old with only one floor. Superior building was the farthest from water but closest to office/breakfast. We had a wonderful view of Lake Huron from the Huron building. I would stay here again. Book early for summer stays.

    « Good except for HVAC »

    It appears that this place has been recently renovated and is very attractive especially with the lake views and frontage. The breakfast is one of the best buffet breakfasts at a motel that we've had recently. The room was clean & comfortable, except the HVAC unit was a little noisy when we first set it in our room. We had a late arrival and just needed a good night sleep to finish our trip the next day. Well, none of us got that good night sleep at the a/c compressor got louder and louder as the night went on. At about 2 AM I got up to set it on fan only, but, because I had trouble reading the settings at that hour, I accidentally set it on heat. Now we've smelled electric coil heaters before the 1st time they are used for a season, but this one smelled like it was going to start a fire! I got back up and found the fan only setting, but the room already smelled bad. To pack up & move to another room at that hour (assuming there was another room available) would have taken too much time and been even more disruptive to our sleep. Either the smell went away, or we got used to it and probably got 3-4 hours of sleep before we got up. I told the desk clerk about it as we were checking out. All I got was "Oh, I am so sorry. Are you going to leave this charge on the same credit card?" She did make a note of it, so I assume someone will check it out.

    « Wonderful Hotel »

    We arranged our stay over the phone and were told that the building we would be in had no elevator. However, the parking lot for our building, was immediately outside the door of our second floor room and with the ramped sidewalk we had no problems with entry.They have several buildings on this property. The walk to the main desk area, and that is building with the indoor pool and breakfast buffet is uphill. You could drive your car but parking is at a premium in that area. The view of lake Huron from our room, every room in this hotel has a view of the lake, was wonderful and the balcony had 2 chairs. Clean, beds very nice, breakfast was standard fare as in most hotels. No noise at all, large grassy area at lakeside for families with children and a very nice outdoor pool. We asked for a restaurant suggestion and did eat at a local restaurant, The Galley. Food and service were excellent. 3 of us had the excellent local whitefish with fries and one had a local dish, a pastie/pasty, just okay but very large portion. Highly recommend both these places. The hotel was very economical with our AAA discount, $106.00 per night,$118.00 with taxes.

    We were just staying one night because we decided to stay on the Island longer. What a mistake. This property and the staff rocked! Everything was great except the free breakfast (I am gluten-free vegetarian, but my traveling companions ate well.) The rooms were large, had acces to the beach, a great pool, a place for kids to run and play, good location, no paper thin walls, free parking, balcony to sit and watch the sunrise. The staff was the best! We could get tickets to all attractions on the Island (saving money and time). They were helpful and knowledgeable and so pleasant to deal with. I travel a lot but my first time to the UP area. Stay here, save your money, take a boat to the island.

    « Great location to travel to Mackinac Island »

    If you are planning a trip to Mackinac island, it is worth giving over the bridge to St Ignace to stay. We found the village less busy than Mackinaw City and the Best Western was a great place to stay. Booking on line, we were able to get a good price and the motel was very clean and comfortable. The breakfast was very good but the breakfast room was very busy because a couple of bus tours were staying there also. Another positive is that the boats to the Island were near by.

    « Most likely the nicest accommodation in town »

    Stayed two nights here while visiting in Mackinac Island. Much less expensive than staying on the island. They have several multi story buildings but our room was in the motel style building, ground level. The room was a little stuffy and musty smelling when we arrived but disappeared by the second day. Updated bathtub/showers, refrigerator, comfortable beds. Complimentary breakfasts had hot choices and cold. Outdoor pool and jacuzzi as well as an indoor pool and jacuzzi. A laundry is available for guests to use. A bonus were the fireworks that take place each Saturday night during the summer from the nearby harbor after sundown. One downside is that we were awakened at 3:30 in the morning by rowdy guests 2 doors down that were having a domestic dispute. We found out they had been evicted afterward. I highly recommend this hotel in this small town.

We had two rooms in two different buildings for 6 nights. Like they say, every room has a lake view. Both rooms were spacious and clean. The grounds were immaculate and very open to walking around! The nightly bonfires (real not gas), complete with marshmallows to roast, was a plus and a great way to meet folks from other areas over a glass of wine! (The staff brought more wood for us late nighters!) The hotel is in close proximity to the ferries to Mackinac Island and could be walked if desired. The staff was friendly and very accommodating!

    « A nice place with a variety of room types »

    My review is somewhat mixed because we stayed here twice in the same vacation and had different experiences. My husband and I have stayed here before and liked it very much so when we decided to take a trip to the Upper Peninsula with our teen-aged son, we decided to stay here again. This property has 5 buildings, one being the main office with breakfast area and indoor pool area. The other 4 buildings are where the rooms are and are named for Great Lakes--Michigan, Superior, Huron, and Ontario. We had previously stayed in "Ontario" and loved our view of Lake Huron and Mackinac Island from our balcony. We learned on this trip that there are differences between the buildings. At the beginning of our trip we had a room in "Ontario". It turned out to be a large room on the end of the building, bigger than we'd had in the past, with a lovely view. "Ontario" is furthest away from the continental breakfast in the morning up at the main building, but we didn't mind that. The weather was lovely and walking is good for us. The room was spacious, clean and nicely furnished. It did cost more than the room we had later, and perhaps this was due to its size I realized later. After being there a few days we checked out. At check out we happened to mention that we'd be back in a few days and the desk clerk asked if we liked our room and we said yes. So he said he'd arrange for us to have that room again when we came back. So when we came back a few days later we were expecting we'd probably get the same room back. However, that was not the case. This time we were in "Superior". The "Superior" building has very little lake view. However, it does overlook a very nice outdoor pool and hot tub. The "Superior" rooms are entered from the outdoors, which is different than "Ontario". We got there after dark and the bugs were in full force so we had to be careful going into our room and minimize lights so as not to get bugs into our room. However, the outside surface of the room door was painted with shiny red paint which did seem to inhibit insects from congregating on the door, so that helped. The room was not as big as our previous room but it was still clean and nice and I did like the fact that the sink was outside the bathroom so it made it easier for multiple people to get ready in the morning. There were fewer outlets though, which made it trickier for plugging in all our phones, computer, etc. The parking lot for the "Superior" building was almost full and the parking lot itself was tight space-wise for parking our full-size pickup truck. Another guest with a full size truck arrived just after us and had trouble parking also. In the morning, the "Superior" building seemed a lot noisier with thinner walls/floors compared to "Ontario". I don't really know anything about the other two buildings, "Michigan" and "Huron" since I've never stayed in them. It did look like the rooms for the "Michigan" building are entered from the outside, like "Superior". I would say that the "Ontario" building is best for when you want a more distant, quieter location with a lake view and don't mind a longer walk. "Superior" seems to be best for families who plan to spend time at the outdoor pool since it directly overlooks it. Plus the flooring outside the rooms at "Superior" is very much geared for swimmers since it is made of rough, rubbery material that would tolerate water dripping on it from water-logged swimmers. We really liked the continental breakfast in the morning, which is very popular. This hotel seemed quite popular in general with a variety of people ranging from young couples, families with young children, families with teens, and seniors. I would stay here again but personally I would ask for the "Ontario" building since it is quieter, has a lake view, and rooms are entered from inside the building.

    We stayed here Friday night 8/12. The room was large and spotless; the windows could be opened to let in the breeze. Our room did not face the water, but the parking lot was quiet. In fact, we both slept well and did not hear a thing. The bed was very comfortable. Check in was easy and efficient. Parking spots are big enough to accommodate vehicles with bike racks without sticking out into traffic.

    « Expensive for the cumbersome layout of the property »

    Stayed one night with my wife and 13 year old daughter on 8/12. We stayed here capping a few days in Mackinaw City and Mackinac Island running with my daughter and her cross country team. Certainly, part of the reason this property may seem a little bit of downgrade was our travels to Mackinaw...nothing against St Ignace, but its just not as nice of an area as Mackinac Island (few in Michigan are). That being said, as first blush this property seemed very nice, although nearly $75 more a night than what we had paid to stay in Mackinaw City! However, except for the view of the straits right outside our door, the rooms are pretty plain. They are clean and the beds are comfortable, but I guess for nearly $300 a night, you expect things to be a little higher end. Worse, the property is very spread out...there are 4 different buildings that have guests! Meaning, every time you want to use the pool, you need to walk 500 yards to the front building, generally to find it crammed with people. We had a similar experience for the breakfast buffet...it was good, but you had to walk (or drive!) to get there from our room and then is was overrun with other guests! It appears that this entire complex was once apartments (or something) and has been incorporated into one vacation rental. Each building seems to be fine in and of itself, but it just had too many guests for the overall property. Assuming the front building was maybe the clubhouse (originally) that would explain why it could not handle the capacity of having 4 separate buildings arriving for breakfast at once. We never did get into the hot tub or poos (two of them) as they were constantly crammed with people. For the price and the clean but ho hum rooms, I would just as soon stay somewhere else with a little more ability to book the appropriate number of guests for its facility.

    « Expensive but comfortable »

    I had stayed here previously and the room was clean, nothing fancy with no view of the water. There was a lot of walking between buildings. The included breakfast was good, nice dining area and a good pool for the kids. Price for the room was almost $200 which for the room and community with many hotels/motels was high.

    Highly recommend staying here! The rooms were clean and up to date. Continental breakfast was excellent! A lot of choices and they kept everything stocked, even during busy time. Two pools, one indoor and one outdoor. Bon fire in the evening with marshmallows for roasting, a playground and beautiful view of the lake from our room!

    « Our nicest stay yet in the straits area »

    My wife has wanted to try this hotel for quite a while. We have stayed in both Mackinaw City and St Ignace. This trip we choose the BW. It is the best we have stayed at by far in the area. Check in was the fasted I have ever encountered in any of my traveling. I was in and out in less then 2 minutes. The room appeared to be pretty clean. Lots of activity outside, pool was hopping. Pool area was very clean. The grounds overall were clean with the exception of goose poop everywhere near the water and campfire pit. Hard to keep up with the stupid geese droppings but could have been better still. Breakfast was way above average for a typical hotel included free breakfast. We only stayed one night but would gladly go back. Only drawback is if you wanted to walk to downtown, not the best place to do that from.

    Clean rooms, beautiful view of the lake on the balcony. Clean restroom. Clean bedsheets. No dust and vacuumed carpet. Bathtub was spotless as well as sinks and toilet. The Hotel had 2 pools, one outside that was lit up toward the evening time and indoor pool that was very clean and seemed to be well ventilated to avoid heavy chlorine fumes. Staff was courteous and accommodating. Not one complaint.

    « Wonderful hotel »

    My children and I stayed here during the first night of our road trip around the UP. This hotel is beautiful! The room was spacious, extremely clean, and comfortable. We used the outdoor pool and hot tub. The hot tub was one of the nicest hotel hot tubs we had been in. Our room had a balcony overlooking the outdoor pool. The breakfast was extremely good. The biscuits and gravy were the best that we have had in a hotel. The staff is very helpful and friendly. Upon check in I had an issue with my credit card. I was a bit upset, worried about being stranded with my kids. Both the young man (Zach?) and Ron the manager were kind and helpful, and helped me get everything worked out.

    « Great last minute find! »

    I think it might be safe to say we were lucky to get a room booking online from the car enroute to visit the Fort and next day take ferry to Mackinaw Island, etc, because the place was hopping with guests, pool very busy, and the next morning sign posted"no Vacancy"! It was a great stay with extra surprise bonuses, including he views and the large lit outdoor pool. It helps that it was a perfect summer night, and vacation, so everyone we met seemed in a holiday mood. The handsome young desk clerk was at first a bit condescending suggesting that I shouldn't be looking for fried fish, intimidating that this was somehow ignorant/unhealthy on my part, but his co-worker bailed him out by sharing his favorite local fish n chips choice, and same snobbish clerk later redeemed himself by being gracious about me locking us out of our room. Smile. The breakfast room was spacious and well stocked and boasted outdoor seating as well as indoor. The grounds are pretty and well kept by a seemingly large busy staff.

    « Pit Stop »

    Upon arrival we were pleasantly greeted by the staff. When I advised the young men behind the counter that I was pulling a trailer and needed a good place to park it, they were extremely helpful in picking out the best spot closes to our room. The property was very clean and exceeded my expectations for a chain hotel in this price range. As a Platinum Marriott member I stay in a lot of hotels and would not hesitate to stay at this Best Western when visiting the UP.

    « Best hotel in St. Ignace for sure »

    I can repeat everything others have said, but I will address things I didn't see from other reviewers. They have a marshmallow roast/ bon fire at 9:00. Bring your own chocolate and graham crackers if you want to make s'mores. They offer discounted tickets to the ferry. It is within walking distance. You can really hear people walking above you and their running water. Request the top floor if that bothers you. Great breakfast included. My kids spent more time in the indoor pool, had it to themselves as everyone else was in the outdoor one. Stay here if coming for vacation.

    « Another great stay! »

    There are many reasons for this hotel's consistent positive reviews- great location on the water, spotless, comfortable rooms, great pool areas, nice breakfast area with indoor/semi-outdoor seating with a decent selection of breakfast items, and most importantly, staff who are friendly, efficient, and care about guest satisfaction. Don't forget to stop down by the lake at dusk for a bonfire! They even provide the marshmallows! On Saturday nights in the summer, there are fireworks and a great view from the hotel. The only thing in my opinion that would make it perfect is some seating and new sod by the lake shore. It's hard to find a place to sit right by the lake because it's weedy and full of goose droppings.

    We usually stay at the Holiday Inn but decided to try this hotel and we were pleasantly surprised as it was very well run very clean professional and friendly helpful staff. I am very picky about cleanliness and our room and the entire property were kept very tidy. The breakfast was a very busy place but staff was right on top of replacing items that ran low and their was plenty of seating. The housekeeping services we ran into our second day there asked us several times if we wanted our room serviced and made sure that we had we had what we needed and we're very polite.

    The staff was amazing from the moment we arrived. Everyone went out of their way to make you feel comfortable. They set up a pack and play with blanket and toddler pillow in our room at no charge. The cleaning staff tucked in my son's teddy the first night and put a light saber we left on the floor in the teddy's hand the next. My son loved coming back to the room to see how teddy would be set up. The shore is rocky but clean and nice. The play scape was really nice and both pools were very clean. The outdoor pool has a pool house with bathrooms and drinking fountain. The breakfast was really good. They had waffle machines, eggs, sausage, biscuits n gravy, and potatoes plus cereal, muffins, yogurt, juices and coffee. Very crowded and hectic at times but they had a ton of staff bussing tables and refilling all the food / drinks. The fireworks were great and we watched them from the balcony. I never went down to the fire pit but my family said they provided smores supplies at no charge. My only complaint was the distance between the pool and breakfast and our rooms in the farthest building. It was hard to get the kids to make the long trek between buildings.

    « Great View of Lake Huron »

    We have always stayed in Mackinaw City previously when coming to this area; however, we decided to stay here since we were going to travel the UP. We made a great decision. There is less crowd in St. Ignace than in MC, and you have a closer view of Mackinaw Island. The ferry ride to the island is also shorter. This hotel is composed of several buildings so you have to walk to the breakfast building. Wonderful breakfast. We had a lakeside room with a balcony and thoroughly enjoyed the view of Lake Huron and Mackinaw Island. It was just a nice place to relax and enjoy the setting. The only drawback was the issue they were having with bugs in early June. It was just that time of year for them. You definitely will not be disappointed when staying at this wonderful hotel. I would like to have given a 4.5 rating for it. Give this location a try.

From our room we had a beautiful view of Lake Huron, which was easily accessed through an adorable balcony and there was even an outdoor fire pit with chairs arranged in a circle around it that you could build a fire at night. In that same area was also a kid's play area. Our only regret was that we weren't staying longer.

    « Wonderful room, great breakfast, ideal location - an outstanding 10! »

    A dream came true for me this year when I visited Mackinac Island and staying here helped make it a perfect trip. The hotel is ideally situated and our balcony overlooked the lake, across to the island. The room itself was enormous, with two queen size beds and a nice sitting area. It was a corner room so it had large windows on two sides, giving us lots of light. The included buffet breakfast offered lots of choice, hot and cold. I loved the waffle makers, nice to be able to make your own, fresh and hot! The reception staff were very helpful, we bought tickets there for the ferry across to the island, also booked for the buffet luncheon and The Grand Hotel on the island. The hotel is a short distance from the ferries. We were there a few days before the tourist season really gets started (were there May 24 - 27), we were told that if we had been there a week later it would have been much busier. The hotel does have evening bonfires, but they had not started those when we were there. I would definitely recommend this hotel and look forward to returning.

It's not as crowded as Mackinaw City. Shorter boat ride to the island and very relaxing place to stay at. Next time you visit St. Ignace, stay at the Best Western, you'll see why Trip Advisor rank them as #1 hotel in St. Ignace.

Decent breakfast buffet with hot options like waffles, sausage, and fake eggs included in the room rate. Also, it opened at 6:00 AM which was great for us because we wanted to catch the early ferry to Mackinac Island and get our laps around the Island on our bikes in before it got too crowded. Good wifi and a very nice, comfortable, and firm mattress. Wish we had more than two nights here so we could enjoy the property more. Fridge and coffee maker in room, but no microwave.

    When we previously stayed in Saint Ignace, we stayed at the Holiday Inn up the road. We like Saint Ignace because it is quieter than Mackinaw City. While that hotel was nice enough and slightly cheaper, this was was much nicer. My room was in the Lake Superior Building, which is a concept I like because travelers are spread out among the different buildings. The room was spacious, with a small balcony overlooking the property. I liked that the sink was outside from the toilet and shower. I liked how my hotel room exited outside instead of inside a hallway. The entire time I was there, I heard one loud group once. We stayed on a Sunday, Monday Tuesday and they were booked, so reserve early. The staff was friendly and helpful. We loved the hot free breakfast and the indoor AND outdoor pool options. The only reasons I didn't rate a 5 are minor ones: 1. The outdoor pool's stone decking was sensitive on the bottoms of our feet 2. The goose poop down by the fire pit was annoying.

Basic breakfast. Staff were disinterested in their guests, all very young. When I asked the manager about different room to hotel photo, he said that we should have booked direct & the following night we could have room with balcony at extra cost. $4 toll each way on bridge & shortage of restaurants in St Ignace.

    « Best Western Harbour Pointe - Room Tips, Proximity to Ferries & Things to Know »

    The Best Western Harbour Pointe Lakefront in Saint Ignace is a wonderful property as many reviews point out & we agree with other reviewers regarding the cleanliness of the property. We give it four stars because the hotel is located in 4 separate buildings and below we detail the buildings' locations & info to know in picking a building. Each of the four buildings has differing views of either the hotel property or Lake Huron. Also, most important to those with mobility issues is the proximity of the 4 buildings varies to the main building where breakfast is located, which means that guests must go outside to get to the area breakfast is served or to get to the indoor pool area. We stayed in the Ontario Building, which had three floors and was the closest to Lake Huron, and our room's small private balcony faced east with a spot-on view of the lake and Mackinac Island. It was private and was an absolutely wonderful view. We recommend any of the rooms with the balconies facing the lake in this building. Note, though, the rooms cost more with lake views than other rooms in other buildings on the property. This building is also the farthest away from the outdoor and indoor pools as well as the breakfast dining area. It was a four/five minute walk, up a slight incline near the parking lot, which may be an issue for older patrons or physically impaired guests. The Huron Building has balconies that also face east so rooms can see the lake straight on, but the building itself is set back from the lake with the bonfire grassy area in front of it, and the parking lot for the Huron is also the pass-thru lot to get to the Ontario building. It is probably a 3 minute walk to the breakfast area. The Michigan Building is a one story building in which the guest room front doors face north, and guests can see Lake Huron by looking to their right upon stepping out of the hotel room. The bonfire pit for roasting marshmallows in the evening is close to the Michigan Building. The Superior Building is closest to the outdoor pool and initially we were given a room in this building. The entrance doors for this building are Exterior Entry, which we do not prefer. Most of the balconies in the Superior also face north, with views of the outdoor pool, but not with a straight-on view of Lake Huron as the Huron building semi-blocks the lake views. The room we initially had appeared to be much older than the room we ended up in at the Ontario. The hotel's location is about a 10 minute walk to Shepler's Ferry dock, and 12 minutes to Star Line Jet Ferry. Arnold's Ferry is probably an 18-20 minute walk. We liked being able to leave our vehicle at the Best Western and then walking to Shepler's dock area. The main breakfast/dining area had about 12-14 tables with 4 seats each, and then there was a tented exterior patio area that had additional seating. We got breakfast at 6:30 am one day and there was only a handful of guests, but on the second day had breakfast about 8:30 and it was full. Final note, we thought the staff at the Best Western were very accommodating and friendly. We want to send a shout-out to Shannon at the check-in area who helped us with our room booking and getting us a lake view room. She was extremely kind. As a final note, the laundry is located in it's own little separate building area near the parking lot area of the Huron Building across from the outdoor pool. Overall, a very good property to stay at for couples or families.

    We loved staying here. We opened the door to our room and there was a fabulous view of Lake Huron. The room was clean and large and the beds were very comfortable. Breakfast provided a range of choices of the usual foods, but there is a lovely enclosed patio to eat on. We also enjoyed walking the manicured grounds down to the lake shore. Yes, you do have to watch for the goose and gull droppings, but that comes with a natural setting. There is a lovely firepit area as well as a playground and outdoor pool. We were in the Huron building and it was quiet except for the sound of the waves slapping the shore. Great stay!

    « Another Great Stay at The Best Western! »

    This was our 2nd time staying here in the past couple of years. We stayed for 3 nights at the end of June 2016. We had a ground floor lakefront room which had sliders to a private deck area that walked right out to Lake Huron. We were traveling with our 7 and 8 year olds. The room consisted of 2 queen beds with a small sitting area. The room was clean, beds were comfortable, and plenty spacious for our family of four. It was wonderful to put the kids to bed and sit out on the deck or lay in bed listening to the waves while feeling the lake breeze. I would definitely recommend the lakefront ground level rooms. It made it very easy for the kids to walk out to the lake and hunt for stones while we watched from the deck/porch. It was also convenient to go to the playground, pool, or head out to the nightly bonfire right from our room. The hotel has two pools (indoor and outdoor) with hot tubs, a playground and large field area, work out room, laundry, and an awesome free breakfast complete with waffle makers. We made this our home base while we took a few days to explore others sights within about an hour from St. Ignace. Our kids loved it here and we will be back again! My daughter is sitting next to me right now and asked if we can go back next week!!!

    « Solid choice with great lake view »

    This is our second visit to this hotel. I recommend it. Staff has always been friendly and helpful. Both times we stayed in the Ontario building and had beautiful lake views. The pillows and bed were great. Not too soft. The hotel was full and I don't recall hearing much if anything from neighboring rooms. It's not fancy and a bit too dark but clean and functional. The mini frig was perfect and there was a little kitchen area. The pool always looks great - it's big - but didn't get to test it out. The shower water temperature was inconsistent in the morning ranging from chilly to too hot and not at the desirable level but pressure was good. For a place like this and its location (lots of outdoor activities) I'm a little surprised they don't have 2 washers and dryers. There is only one set. They have a nice breakfast but not terribly friendly to dietary restrictions such as gluten free. Hard boiled eggs and Udi's bread upon request could easily fix it.

    « Nice Hotel......get a 3rd floor room »

    This is a lovely hotel. Our room easily fit a roll away with room to spare. We had a balcony overlooking the outdoor pool. The outdoor pool looked fabulous, however, it was raining when we visited....great news....there is an indoor pool too! My only tip when staying here is to request a top floor at the end of the building as you can easily hear footsteps above and people walking on the walkway next to the rooms.

    « Disappointed »

    I booked a king bed with a lake view and a private balcony; I got a king room with a Jacuzzi and a partial view, barely a view at all from a ground level room. I did not ask for or want a Jacuzzi; I wanted a view and balcony. When I complained and asked why I didn't get the room I had reserved, the desk clerk couldn't explain why and tried to blame a third party booking site. I made my reservation through the Best Western site so then she blamed that site and said they don't know the rooms they actually have. No apology or compensation was offered. The refrigerator was located under the bathroom sink. You had to kneel on the floor to access it and you couldn't stand near the counter because the frig was in the way. The room came with a table and chairs but the chairs were so low the table was almost a chin height. The room was clean and the breakfast was good, but overall the experience at this hotel was disappointing.

We had a huge patio that faced the lake and Mackinac Island. It was so relaxing and beautiful. I usually don't spend much time at a hotel while vacationing but I did here. The free breakfast had a nice variety but I suggest going as early as possible or it gets super crowded. There is an outdoor pool/spa and an outdoor one too. There is a nice walking area down by the beach. Each night there was a campfire. I would totally stay here again.

They have a large playground area, offered a fire pit by the lake with marshmallow roasting, have a nice outdoor pool as well as an indoor pool for bad weather days. Our room had a king sized bed, a private balcony and a view of the lake. The room was spacious. The breakfast was one of the better ones around and there was ample room for many people to eat. FYI: The Michigan building is right next to the playground close to the beach and bonfire area. The Superior building is next to the outdoor pool area. Ontario building is on water.

    This place is amazing. Went way beyond what I'd expected. My husband and two toddlers( ages 3 and 4) stayed for two nights. First off, the room we had was the cleanest hotel room I've ever stayed in. The beds are very comfortable. We had a ground level room facing the pool which was awesome because my two kids swim like fish. I could sit on the porch and watch them swim with my husband. The pool is huge and walks in like a beach. There is also an indoor pool. And hot tub. The grounds are beautiful, overlooking the lake and Mackinac Island. My kids played on the playground and had a blast. Continental breakfast was great, waffles, biscuits, gravy, eggs, potatoes, cereal, all kinds of beverages. The hotel is in a good location and close to downtown. I will recommend to everyone I know that's heading to St. Ignace.

However, if you're there for the wifi you might need to reevaluate your lifestyle. I am the Email admin for a fortune 100, and the wifi was very very minor because I am on vacation. Once my wifi reminded me, the wifi was no issue at all. The staff was more helpful and everything that any Hilton brand I've stayed at.

    « Close to the Island Ferries »

    Stayed at the Best Western with a tour group...actually many, many tour groups were there on the weekend of the Mackinac Island Lilac Festival. The management and staff were courteous and approachable, especially on such a busy weekend. My room was in the Huron building, not what I would consider the best of the 4 buildings on site but that is what my group was allocated. Don't know if it was my travel agent, the tour company or the hotel, but unfortunately none of my room requests were met. I would have preferred to deal with the hotel directly but didn't have that choice this time. If you can, get a lake front room in the Ontario building for great views. I would have paid extra for that. There is a shuttle cart that will pick you up and take you up the hill to the office / breakfast room / indoor pool (and back of course). Room A/C was good and I like the fact there was a Fan Only setting - good for sleeping if you like air circulation and a bit of "white noise". Beds were comfortable. Wasn't able to sit outside on the balcony because of the gnats - hundreds of them. Not much that can be done about them. Only problem is, when the room doors are left open by the cleaning staff, many of the gnats take up residence in your room. Take a fly (gnat) swatter ! The breakfast room was, of course, wall to wall people, even though the bus group times were staggered. Not too bad Saturday, but Sunday and Monday were extremely busy. The staff did very well keeping everything refilled as fast as possible. The breakfast itself was the same each day while we were there - lots to choose from to start your day off right. The coffee was good and loved the waffle makers. There is a covered outdoor patio to eat in where it is less noisy but still busy so grab a table when you see it. Didn't try either pool but they both looked clean. Too cold for the outdoor pool except for the very hardy but nice to sit out there and gaze out to the lake (my room didn't have much of a view - it was a corner room). There isn't anything around the hotel as far as getting groceries and not too many (if any) restaurants within walking distance. One of the staff was kind enough to take me on a run he was doing to the local grocery store. Purchased a salad and ate it at one of the property picnic benches down near the lake, surrounded by newly born goslings and their parents. Very peaceful. The pier for the ferries over to Mackinac Island is very short walking distance. The BBQ on our last night was well organized and had a good selection, although the veggies could have been a little less "al dente" - just my preference though.

    We decided to stay in St. Ignace during our Lake Michigan Circle Tour and called the Best Western at the last minute. We got the last room with a king bed which happened to be a lake view Jacuzzi suite. It was a huge room and would be great for a family except that the Jacuzzi was in the living room! Not very convenient, private, or romantic. We had a balcony but could not use it because of the bugs the resort was dealing with. This facility is very large with five separate buildings. There were five tour buses full of tourists staying at the hotel. The room was clean and the bed and pillows were very comfortable which I did not expect from a Best Western. The only real disappointment was the breakfast. They hype the waffles and hot breakfast items but if you are looking for good quality and healthy options, you should find a nice café. They had sausage and scrambled eggs that were from a mix, cheap muffins and breads, sugar cereal, and instant oatmeal. The orange juice was good but the coffee was not. We stayed in three Best Western facilities during this trip and each one had the same breakfast so it is a corporate thing.

    « Great spot on the water »

    Could not have been happier. Checkin was quick and easy and we had a 2 bedroom suite with a patio overlooking the water. We were even able to get ferry tickets to Mackinac Island at the front desk. It was a little bit of a walk to breakfast, but that was a small price to pay for a large room. We also enjoyed the smores at the fire pit in the evening. Nice thing for the resort to do, and great way to meet people.

    We only spent one night at this hotel/resort but would have loved to stayed longer. Staff was courteous and attentive, everywhere shone and sparkled, and breakfast was delicious. The lakefront setting is beautiful. Highly recommend this hotel for a get-away with young children because of their play area, indoor and outdoor pools and excellent TV reception. :)

    Hotel was very clean, front desk friendly. Disappointed that the pool was in a different building than our room. Had to walk outside to get to pool ( temps are cool, low 50s). Also, i booked a room with a balcony facing the lake. Great room but could not open the sliding glass door due to gnats (giant ones). They are all over the place.

    Our kids sent us on an anniversary trip and chose Best Western Harbour Pointe Lakefront and we couldn't have been happier! We enjoyed our time here very much. The employees are very friendly and helpful. The property and rooms are very clean. The breakfast was really good and we were happy that it was available until 10 am. There were gnats and we were informed of that. We get them where we live as well. It's just that time of year. It is beyond their control and all the hotels seemed to be having an issue with them. We didn't let it ruin our trip and we coexisted with them quite well. We will stay here again.

    A vey clean hotel with exceptionally friendly staff. Stayed in a King room (which doesn't have a porch or balcony as some literature would suggest). The room was a good size and it came with normal ameneties however there is no microwave. The hotel comprises a number of buildings but only one breakfast area which gets very busy and must be turmoil in the busy season. The only real downside was the WC in the room, it was made for three feet high people without any sort of knee complaint. I would suggest that if you are either above average in size or have any sort of knee complaint you will find it problematic to use..

    This Best Western is a little gem in St. Ignace. Friendly staff, comfortable rooms, good breakfast. Beautiful views of Lake Huron, bon fires at night. Rooms are generous, comfortable beds. Large enough to roam, but small enough to feel like you're at home. A number of buildings spread out over beautiful yard.

    « I'd give it five stars except.... »

    For the past 25 years we have traveled about 100 - 150 nights a year and where we travel to the Hilton Brand is predominant. So this hotel is clearly no Hilton but then nether is the price. If this were a Hilton I'd give it three stars and not four. We were in the Ontario building. The good is the view, being right on the water, and nice large size clean room. The great is the staff is super friendly, the breakfast was great and you can buy your horse drawn carriage tickets and ferry tickets at a slightly discounted price right at the front desk. Ok now for the not so great and remember the price is great compared to a typical Hilton. The walls are thin and I could hear people walking in the room above and next door. I am almost 70 and lost one ear drum to cancer so I'm very hard of hearing; therefore, the walls must really be thin. The TV has a governor to only allow the volume to a level that I can barely here. Not good for me but probably a good idea with the thin walls. Lastly and this is not the hotel's fault but I was here in early June and there are flying gnats, all over the place. They are NOT aggressive and don't bite, but a patio doesn't do much good when there are hundreds all over the patio wall, the patio chairs, the sliding glass door, etc. So we couldn't have our sliding glass door open because the majority of the pests are between the screen and the glass! Mackinac island has the same problem so this is not just a problem with this hotel. I suspect the further you stay from the water the better chance of less gnats. Perhaps it is better later in the summer, I'm not sure. I have posted pics of the gnats on my patio and the paper the hotel leaves in the room explaining the situation. My advice is to not have a room near the water because your balcony is useless. So 4 stars for lots of good things but not 5 stars because of some small things one of which is not the hotel's fault.

    « Cross the bridge!! »

    My new wife and I stayed here right after memorial day 2016. Found it on a search engine and figured "lake front view" was overrated and if you had binoculars...nope! Check in took two minutes, indoor pool and the property is definetly one that doesn't disappoint. The quality of our room was done to a standard not seen in a while. Screws on light switches, tub drains, and outlets were all matched up. Wallpaper was aligned dead on. The only thing that wasn't out of a travel guide was the sea gulls gathering around because the kids and adults are throwing bread right behind the fire pit causing a whole gang to show up for dinner. The view of the island is fantastic, it's almost totally private and feels like your personal resort. This is definetly a goto vacation spot for us.

    I would recommend this hotel if you are looking for a place to stay in St. Ignace. It is very close to the ferry docks and near by Native American Museum. Our room had a great view of the water. There is a playground, beach area and common are with large fire pit. Next year I plan on bringing the necessities to make smores. The breakfast was great with eggs sausage and waffle makers that worked very well.

    « Nice stay at Best Western Harbour Pointe »

    The sign in the front of the office read "Voted #1 by TripAdvisor" - not quite sure if I would agree but have not tried any of the others as this was a first visit. We found the hotel room to be very clean but the stairway to our room was not so much - probably because of children staying in the building. I would say that it was adequate and the breakfast was good for us as we were just wanting something quick so that we could board the Ferry to Mackinac Island. When I return I will check out other locations but I would return to the Best Western unless I found something better.

    « Noisy and Buggy »

    Noises all night from children and people on the beach directly across from our rooms balcony, well past 2 am. Front desk staff did nothing about it. The "common" area of the beach is well marked out and after a certain time should be adhered to. Little black bugs akin to gnats infested the area and room.

    Best place we have stayed at yet. Everyone was friendly and helpful. I bought ferry and carriage ride tickets at the front desk at a discount. Our room was not ready so we spent the day at Mackinac Island and had a great time and checked in when we got back. If we were to go back again we would stay here. We heard no exterior noise at all. We awoke to see a family of Canadian geese out our sliding door to our private patio. Very peaceful. Every convenience was close.

    « Beautiful Resort »

    This stay was one of the best hotels we have ever been in. The suite in the Ontario Building was outstanding with full bedroom, living room and Jacuzzi. The entire resort was spotlessly clean. The breakfast had ample food but staying there five nights, it had no changes or options and was repetitive each day. That would be my only criticism. While there, the resort accommodated a rather large highschool group which had no effect on the remaining guests. Obviously, great planning went into hosting teenagers and providing them lots of space to vent that youthful energy. There was also a paving project which also never interfered with their guests. I highly recommend this beautiful Best Western to everyone planning a trip to St. Ignce and Mackinac Island. The walk to the ferry is short and it gives you much needed exercise.

    Very nice hotel. Reasonable prices and employees go out their way to help you. Rooms are clean and comfortable. I would stay there again.

    We had a lovely room with an incredible view overlooking Lake Huron. There are several different buildings: we were in the Ontario building. The lake was perhaps 20 feet from our building. Our room was very clean, the bed comfortable and there were 2 very comfortable chairs. The front desk staff is extremely friendly and helpful. If you want to purchase tickets for the Star Line ferry to Mackinac Island and to a carriage ride on the island - at a saving get them from the front desk folks.

    This is a very nice hotel property with a very friendly staff.

    « Detroiter in Area. »

    Researched several areas for a weekend getaway to Mackinac and St Ignace was suggested from family who use to live in The Soo as I was trying to not break the bank. This was the #1 rater hotel for St Ignace and the price point was perfect. Below you'll find a few pros, cons and need to know to help you plan your vacay at the hotel and surrounding area. HOTEL. Location: You drive by several shady looking motels as you approach the Best Western. Outside of the Holiday Inn there isn't a better looking exterior. There's also a boardwalk if you drive past the ferry launch. Would be a good family activity with some great views. Customer Service: Check in was quick and smooth. A younger guy named Ryan I think was the best employee I dealt with. Purchasing the slightly discounted ferry tickers were easy too. Room: We had a lake view King. Room was very spacious and the bed was amazing. Freaking faucet water pressure could strip the stain off a deck. Wish the shower head had even half of that. Was still not bad. Private patio was a good benefit. The fire is in the bathroom, which is weird. Pool: Outside was closed as we were a bit early for the season but we did go in the indoor. The jacuzzi was okay but the jets were mediocre. Was a good luxury after a long day on the Island. FYI: If you have kids, the playscape is cool, but there's a TON of goose poop there so be mindful of you send them off. Be leary of the flying gnats. They're upfront about it as its a issue all around the water. Can ruin a walk to the water though. The fire pit looked okay but it was just a bit too windy and cold to partake. The ferry docks are NOT within walking distance of the hotel. I'm healthy in my mid 30's and it would of been a 10-15 min walk. Not bad but the few blocks is deceiving. They do have a shuttle and parking is free if u want to drive. It's less than a 5 min drive. Could be a long walk back to the hotel after a long day on the Island. Sunset/Sunrise. Unless you're in the Ontario building and facing the water (I assume these are the $$$ rooms) that building will block your view but you could wake up and walk down if you want. Sunset can't be scene from hotel but there's several areas you can drive to see it. AROUND TOWN FYI We ordered BCs Pizza at 11:30 at night and received a good medium pizza for $14. Java Joe's looked cool and the service was super friendly. Wasn't too impressed on the coffee or some of the food. The local casino. I can't think of the Indian owned casino but we did check it out one night. I was highly impressed and it exceeded my expectations for a small casino. It was clean with a great deck area over looking the water. Some beers were 2.50-4.00 which isn't bad for a casino. Very few table games and the wait for that and the poker room was lengthy. Poker room played very loose with some good credit if you sign up for their rewards card. Tons of slots, mostly penny. We didn't hit but I did see a lady hit for 1,400 on a penny one. We did check out Driftwood Bar for a few drinks after the Island and found it okay. At the time alot of locals getting tipsy. Fun ppl watching and cheap pool. Food was okay. We also went to Castle Rock climb. For $1.00 per person you can't go wrong as it is a great expertise to climb with a okay view too. Good for kids and able parents. We also ate at Weinerlicious before the Bridge at Mackinac City. It was okay too. Chicago dog was good. Cool interior. OVERALL Depending on price and what you're looking to do, I'd easily stay here if I'd visit again. Might limit it to a couple nights and maybe one on the Island on the next time.

    « There for us! »

    When we arrived, we were upgraded to a room in the Ontario building because ours was being renovated. This is a new building with all of the rooms facing the lake. The balconies are only a few feet from the shoreline, facing the sunrise. We were to be there for 2 nights, but my husband had a biking accident on Mackinac Island and we had to leave the next morning. The staff could not have been more accommodating! They didn't blink when they knew he was still bleeding or when we had to cancel the next night's stay. They provided all we needed. The hotel is beautiful. There is a lovely brunch and a very nice glass-enclosed area to eat in.. The pool also looked inviting, but we had to be on our way. We appreciate all they did for us!

    « Got a lemon, they made us lemonade! »

    My husband and I spent a long weekend in the UP for our 35th anniversary. I requested a king size bed with a jacuzzi. We got a very nice room in the Superior Building with a lovely view. When we got back from dinner our first night, we heard water dripping. The shower in the room above us was leaking into our bathroom. We called the front desk and they came up right away. They moved us to another room in the Ontario building. I was afraid it would not be as nice as the room we were leaving behind, but it was a definite upgrade. We were now the proud residents of a two room suite. My husband and I felt like this was an unexpected anniversary gift. We almost didn't want to leave our room that weekend. The complimentary breakfast was very nice. It included some hot dishes such as eggs, hash browns, waffles, and biscuits. The staff at the breakfast was very friendly and helpful. The cleaning staff was also friendly, remembering us when we moved into the other building and wishing us well. We really enjoyed our stay there.

    We rented a room at this hotel for the Memorial Day Weekend. The location is just perfect, about 2 minutes away from boat station going to Mackinaw Island. We rented a big condo with two queen beds in the main area and one large bed in the next room. There was one bathroom. The free breakfast was good. The view is great, the rooms overlook the lake and if you wake up early enough, you can experience a beautiful sunrise. There was a fire pit that we shared with others. There was also a little playground for our daughter. We were very satisfied with customer service, ladies at the front desk were very polite and helpful. Overall it was the best option we had in the area.

Any time I had to talk to someone on the phone at the hotel they were pleasant and very accommodating. Check-in and check-out was smooth. They were able to split the cost between 2 cards quickly. The continental breakfast was outstanding and helped fuel our race later that morning. We will definitely be booking again next year!

    « Top option in Small tourist town »

    Given there are a limited amount of lodging choices in Saint Ignace, Best Western Harbour Pointe Lakefront is a great option. We were fortunate to have booked a room, the night before we arrived, right before they were closing for the fall/winter season, third week in October. We were able to get a private balcony room facing the lake directly. We enjoyed seeing the geese and hearing the sound of the waves. There were few people in the building which made it even nicer. The bed was comfortable and the shower was good. During the evening, we noticed some people were enjoying a bonfire on the grounds. Seemed homey. The complimentary breakfast was a plus. Was it restaurant quality? No. But, there were several options including cereal, waffles, powdered eggs, sausage, oatmeal, muffins, etc. which were good enough and filled the belly until it was time to eat again. Coffee was just okay and the Styrofoam cups small in size. By the way,there were no "to go" cups. Finally, the staff was helpful and patient with our requests and questions. Bigger plus. If we came back to the area, we would stay here again.

    The property is comprised of several buildings, independently accessible but not connected. The handicapped room we were assigned was clean and well maintained on the second floor. Ice was available only on the first floor of the Ontario Building where our room was located. The queen mattress was not very comfortable which led to a back ache for my wife. My opinion is that the mattress selection for the property is a basic mattress which is not firm or pillow type. The breakfast was well done and filling.

    Location is great for visiting Mackinac Island. Ferries are close by and the front desk even sells tickets. The hotel itself is nice. The room was clean - the decor was outdated.

    « Pleasant stay »

    We stayed in a King bed room with a balcony on the lake. The view was absolutely beautiful! I will quick break down pros/cons of our stay: PROs: - CLEAN room! Bathroom was spotless, carpet clean, and it was very appealing. -fantastic view from our balcony! I could hear waves through the door at times if the fan was off and I was listening. Very calming and relaxing. We slept with the door open the following night because it was so peaceful. -Breakfast was pretty good. It had more limited options, but still options nonetheless. -TWO pools. We stayed when outdoor pool was closed, but it looked very nice (glass fence), and had a connecting hot tub. -Indoor pool was also nice. Wish they had another bathroom connected or shower on deck to rinse off after. -They door campfires each night by the lake. Beautiful and very camping-esq when it isn't really camping season anymore. -nice park with volleyball net. -have a fitness center, but wasn't able to go in and look because it was already locked on night. CONS -some staff was very abrupt and not very helpful at check in -ran out of TP the second night, and asked to have some brought up. Said they would see what they could do, and never got any. They have golf carts for employees, so it wouldn't have been very much to run some to us, especially toilet paper. It IS a necessity, and we had to get some the following morning after breakfast. -no rooms are connected to the main lobby area. You have to walk or drive (if lazy/rain/super cold) to get to the indoor pool or main lobby. It's not bad, but bad weather quickly changes that. Winter staying will not be fun if walking from pool-room or room-breakfast. Overall, not bad and would go back. Was a nice getaway for a weekend!

    « I would have given 5 stars but safety was a concern »

    Nothing wrong with the room - everything was what we expected from a Best Western. However, we just noticed that there was no hotel phone in our room - this was a safety concern because if something had happen to one of us - there was no lobby to run to for help (there are 5 buildings in this complex). At least they should had posted the direct phone # of the lobby, housekeeping, etc. Most people have cells, but in an emergency we probably had difficulty reaching a local staff; we would just have to call 911. Our room was clean and spacious and we love the view. If management gets regular hotel keys (credit card type), they would expedite check out. And it bothers me that I had reserved a room at this hotel via their website and few days later I found it $30 less on Booking.com - BW price never went down - so much for loyalty appreciation!, of course I cancelled it with BW and book it with Booking.com which was a pleasant transaction.

    Pros: Beautiful, CLEAN and accommodating rooms! Staff was super friendly and helpful. Great breakfast. Close to Kewadin Casino, ferries to Mackinac Island and the bridge. Cons: Not the greatest views of the water and no view of the bridge. They do have a bonfire, but you have to walk across goose poop covered grass to get to it, distance depending on what building you are staying in. In ideal weather, a great place to stay, but if it's raining or snowing, not so much. Buildings are all separate from the main building were the front desk, indoor pool and breakfast is located, so almost like a campground were you have to walk or drive for breakfast, pool, etc. Outdoor pool was sort of centrally located, but again a walk or drive to use.

    We took a break from a pretty stressful situation and drove to the bridge. Had no reservations and just happened to call to see if there was a room available at this Best Western. How lucky we're we? The room we got is literally 35' from the water. In the Ontario building. White swans feeding with their little butts up in the air. A beautiful view of Mackinac Island. We are getting ready to check out and my wife is in the spotlessly clean shower. I'm relaxing and waiting in the vaulted ceiling room on a very comfortable bed. There is a small fridge in the room. A good size TV. The room appears to be recently remodeled. New and quiet A/C unit. A very nice balcony with two, clean, chairs. Breakfast is a very pleasant short walk up the hill. The breakfast was up to par, or, a little better than most. Sausage, eggs, potatoes, bagels, cereal, etc. Pretty good coffee. All in all, this is a very, very comfortable and pleasant place to stay. Highly recommend it.

    « Kindness Brings Us Back »

    The kindest staff of any hotel we have stayed in. Also they are very knowledgeable and helpful. We did not see Tim, the manager but spoke to him on the phone prior to our arrival and he also expressed thanks for our staying at this Best Western. We really appreciate their warm attitudes!.

    After a long tiring day on the motorcycles we found this hotel. The front desk staff were extremely helpful and caring. Our room was very clean. The Bed was extremely comfortable. Very relaxing and quiet location. If we had more time we would have extended our stay. We would go out of our way to return here.

    Front desk staff was incredible. Room was in the Ontario building and was exceptionally clean. Walls are thin, but what can you do? Breakfast was delicious and overall, we were very happy with our stay! Would absolutely visit again.

    I was hesitant, as we normally use the Hilton brand of hotels, but this hotel was awesome. We had a lakefront room on the top floor, and it was worth every penny. The breakfast had a lot of options, and a nice patio on which to enjoy the food. We would definitely come back to this hotel again.

    « Hotel and Ferry »

    We had an enjoyable stay at this Best Western and would not hesitate to stay again. It wasn't necessary to request any help but staff was helpful when needed. The location of this hotel was very good as we were able to purchase a package to get on the ferry to visit Makinac Island which included a carriage ride as well as the ferry and taxi to the ferry terminal.

    The people are wonderful, the rooms are spotless and the amenities are very good. Rates are competitive.There is a great view of Lake Huron & the Ferry Boats to Mackinau Island. I highly recommend the Best Western Harbour Point Lakefront in Saint Ignace, Michigan U.S.A.

    « Fall color tour »

    Went up north for the fall colors but we were alittle early for colors. Visited Tahquamenon waterfalls and they are a must see. The Kewadin casino was also near the hotel. St Iganace is a quaint town. Hotel grounds were very nice and the hotel is on the lakefront. We had a beautiful view of the water from our balcony. We will definitely stay here again.

    « Nice rooms »

    The layout is more of a resort with the office, pool and breakfast area up on the hill. There are 4-5 separate large building with rooms. Our room was perfect in every way except for plumbing noise of other rooms- showers, toilets. Staff are great people. The "resort" is big and you must walk outside to get to the office area up hills. This may be difficult for some people but we enjoyed the property and getting outside. Our room had a fantastic view and was very clean. We stayed a couple of nights and housekeeping had our room well cleaned the next day.

    « One of the best in the area »

    My wife and I booked this property for a six day stay in early October. Best things about the resort: 1) the price was very reasonable, and only about 75% what you might expect 2) the rooms are clean and housekeeping comes in daily 3) the staff is friendly and helpful 4) the wifi is easy to connect to, has good signal strength, and actually features two networks 5) the breakfast is hands down one of the best I've experienced lately, and includes scrambled eggs, sausage links, bagels, muffins, Danish, toast, hot and cold cereals, yogurt, fruit, a waffle iron, coffee, milk and juice 6) the hotel is a two minute drive from all the ferry docks 7) the room TVs are newer flat screens and there is a good variety of channels 8) the pool and hot tub are well maintained. Things that may or may not matter to you, but that you should be aware of: 1) as noted, the hotel caters to a LOT of bus tours; the seniors on these tours are noisy, boisterous and early risers (before sunrise most days). If you intend to sleep in later than 6:30AM, that may be difficult, as the walls are thin and you'll be able to hear every word of every conversation of the people in the room next to you, who seem to change daily (because of the tours), but are invariably hard of hearing and talk loudly to compensate 2) the breakfast area is crawling with tour members from its opening at 6:00AM to about 9:00AM. If you envision a quiet relaxing breakfast and coffee, that ain't happening 3) the hotel does not feature DVDs players or pay-per-view. The cable selections are all you get 4) you will have to walk outside to get to the indoor pool. Depending on your room location and how late in the season you visit, this can be bracing. I can't fault the hotel for the bus tours. after all, you have to take your business where you can get it. Had we known about this though, we might have booked elsewhere. Your mileage may vary.

    This hotel and the grounds are very nice and clean. Would stay here again. We stayed here for the ATV trek over the Mighty Mac. The views from this hotel is breathtaking and it is close to everything, casino, great places to eat. My only complaint was the weather but that is not the hotel's fault. :)

    « Pleasant surprise! »

    A one night stopover in St. Ignace provided a very pleasant surprise in the Best Western Harbour Pointe Lakefront. Our room was HUGE with a very comfortable bed, desk, two easy chairs and table, excellent TV, and a fantastic view of Lake Huron from our private patio with two chairs and a table........all for a very reasonable price! The bathroom was adequate with a small shower; however, everything else more than made up for that! Good breakfast in the morning, again with a view! Very nice folks! I won't even search for other properties the next time we're passing through! (Although we were not there to go to Mackinac Island, this hotel provides transportation to the docks for the quick trip over!)

    A most enjoyable overnight stay. Staff was most pleasant and accommodating. Room was spotlessly clean, spacious and very comfortable. Will definitely book this hotel again if/when we are traveling through this area.

    Agree with other posters that this a nice place. We had no complaints with our room. One thing to be aware of is that there are no elevators. We were first assigned a room on the 3rd floor but after finding that out we were reassigned a ground level room. The hotel was full on an October weekend. Be aware that many bus tours use this hotel. Breakfast was available in the main building, a big negative is the need to walk outside to get there. Depending on what building you are in, it can be quite a hike all uphill going there to eat. The breakfast room is very crowded, bright and hot. With bus traffic it can be packed if you arrive at the wrong time. There is a big overflow room but it was not in use. Looks like it was only used during warm weather. The food was usual breakfast fare, no oatmeal is offered, not even pre packaged. The eggs are powdered, but there is salsa, cheese, and vegetables to spice things up a bit. The grounds are beautiful, but no bon fire was offered the 2 nights we were there. The TV's are large with high quality HD, which isn't always available in the U.P. Beds were very comfortable. Wifi was quick and easy to connect to.

    What a beautiful property! We had a room 30' from Lake Huron and enjoyed the full view with a balcony and sliding glass doors. The room's decor was very nice. The property had two pools, one in and one out, both looked very inviting. Unfortunately we didn't have time to use either one. We will stay here again!
