Saint Ignace sits at the southern tip of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, the first town visitors reach after traveling over the fames Mackinac Bridge. It is also the gateway to the time capsule natural wonder of Mackinac Island at the intersection of two Great Lakes. This older family owned motel is open May to October and is just minutes away from the downtown Saint Ignace boardwalk. Enjoy S’mores nightly around a bonfire, free shuttle to the ferry and rooms with free Wi-Fi, coffee, refrigerators, microwave and air conditioning units. The very clean rooms are basic, although some come with fireplaces, ideal for short stays, and come with complimentary breakfast every morning of your stay.

More for your money at this quaint place. It is like staying with friends. Very clean and friendly owners. Nice beds and you get two! One of the best experiences we had on our trip. Give them your business, you will not be disappointed.
we checked into this motel with our car club for an event in the area. When we checked in we told them that my wife had a service animal. The clerk immediately got agitated and said the dog could not get on his furniture and that we did not let them know in advance, I apologized., They informe me they would charge us a 50 dollar cleaning fee. I told them that if it was a problem I would go to another hotel, They told me no problem but the dog would have to leave the property to do his business. I told them no problem and that we would pay the fee, even though they cannot charge a fee for a service animal unless there is damages. The next day after returning from a day out we noticed that our room hand not been cleaned. We asked other club members if there rooms had been cleaned, and they were. The room we had was already filthy, with stains on sheets and filthy carpet. The next day I went to the office for another issue and the clerk asked if I was the gentlemen with the Dog? I said yes I was. He asked the dog would be with me in the common area? I said yes he would, He asked if he would be on a leash? Again I said yes. He then told me that he was not happy with this whole situation with the Dog. I told him that he needs to stop mentioning the dog or I would report him the the ADA. He then said "all of you people are the same". Another member of our club showed up with her small pet, not a service animal, she was told no problem having the pet even though they have a strict no pet policy. We were told we were lucky because other hotels in the area charge 200 dollars for service animals. The next day we left the hotel. what a nightmare.
