Saltillo, Mexico
Reviewed 23 August 2016 via mobile

These rooms are small. The extra large corner is probably the smallest room I have stayed in, though it does have a good view. The architecture allows for maximum tourist stuffing, maximizing capacities during peak travel times. Keep this in mind; this is not going to be a room for relaxation. Restaurants are within walking distance, and our experience was...

They never clean the fitness room and it's about 95 degrees in there with no ventilation. There are no towels or any way to clean the equipment. The TV doesn't work. When called to ask for towels they said they'd send some but never came. There was a used cup in the bike for multiple days. We picked this hotel...

Reviewed 20 August 2016 via mobile

I would say this hotel is just OK. Nothing terrible, but for a holiday inn express it was probably on the low end of Holiday Inn Expresses. Maintenance is not fantastic, but it was just little things really. I had to re-hang our shower curtain because it was hung incorrectly allowing water to spill out onto the bathroom floor. Our...

It's actually easier to visit Mackinaw Island from St. Ignace, Michigan vs. Mackinaw City as it's closer to the the docks of the three (3) ferry companies (Star, Arnold's & Shepler's) It's about a 20 minute trip and considerably less expensive than staying on the Island. Typical Holiday Inn Express with fantastic views and a very nice beach in front....

Courteous, quick check in. Upgraded to large Jacuzzi room from regular, nice view of Mackinaw Island from the 4th floor. Strong Wi-Fi. Minor complaint: Hallways very warm, not air conditioned. Above average I would say from the normal Holiday Inn and much improved over the Mackinaw City location.

Reviewed 14 August 2016

The hotel is a bit worn - carpets are stained and the bathroom door was swollen, probably from the heat and moisture. The biggest criticism was not related to management but to the architects layout of the breakfast area. Having tables so close to the buffet line was a bit awkward. It was hard to regulate the air and the...

Was put in basement level, or beach walkout. Got jacuzzi room, which was quite big. Breakfast bar was pretty crowded, and cleanups of tables were pretty slow. Staff was very nice. Beach area, a little to be desired. Comforters on bed were stained, and killed about 3 spiders in 2 nights stay. Parking seems tight but manageable. Yes I would...

During the summer, you will pay quite a bit for this hotel room. Our basic room for a Monday night in August came to almost $200 including the taxes. Since this is just like any other Holiday Inn Express that is quite a bit. However, there are so few decent hotels in the UP that this price is kind of...
