If you're not planning to spend time in the room this is the place to stay. The rooms are clean and no frills. Don't expect the Hyatt but this is far from dumpy. Most everything in downtown is within walking distance. Directly across from the locks. You can even hear the bells on the gates at night and the boat... More

We enjoyed the cottage style room right in the heart of St. Ignace! The room is very clean and the staff are very friendly and accommodating. You can watch the boats go through the locks right out your door and there is a great restaurant/bar next door.

This was our first trip to the Soo and we had a great experience. The room was comfortable and clean. We loved the location, so easy to walk everywhere. Very friendly staff and liked the relaxed atmosphere of sitting outside enjoying the weather, meeting our neighbors, and watching the ships. Would definitely recommend it to anyone wanting to enjoy the... More

Have stayed here about 20 times over the last 35 years and we just keep coming back. Booked a 2nd floor room over July 4th weekend a few years back and watched the parade from up there. It could not be beat. Breakfast is just the right amount of variety to make everyone happy.

So close to the locks it's unbelivealble. Great little place, not your big chain / franchise. This was our second time back and we still feel the same as before. We would reccomend this motel to anyone.

It is an old place but its been well maintained. The room was small but clean, fresh paint, fairly new carpet and the beds were comfortable. The parking is pretty tight, let them know if you have a large vehicle so they can put you in a place that will work. It is right across the street from the locks.... More

Perfect location. Perfect sized room and honestly you can't best the price. I highly recommend this jewel. The only complaint is the shower head is low.. Perfect for someone who is four foot tall. But the water pressure was great.. Free breakfast!!!

This hotel has the best location for the Soo Locks. You can hear the ships horn blow and make it to the observation deck in minutes. The complimentary breakfast is nice easy way to start your day of adventure.

Looking for a quiet but friendly motel. Then this is the place. You will not find a pool nor exercise room.

Great price at $99 literally feet away from shopping, restaurants and park overlooking river and locks. Stayed in a queen single room on ground floor. Air Conditioning did not work and window did not lock. Was concerned about noise leaving window open but it was surprisingly quiet through the night. Old hotel so when people are up and around in...
