Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mike_and_family Great location, friendly staff, clean hoteal
The hotel is clean and the location is great, but the staff really makes this place a 10 out of 10. Super friendly, willing to bend over backwards for you, understanding, knowledgeable, fast, all describe the nice people who work at this hotel. From the front desk to the cleaning crew to the dining room person, everyone made us feel special and at home. The location is good too. The hotel sits on top of a hill overlooking the bay, with a great view of Grand Island. Just five minutes from downtown Munising and a short drive to Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore. This is our second stay at this hotel and we will definitely be back again.

Nice location, newer facility, some rooms overlook Lake Superior. Front desk staff was very courteous & helpful. We had a room on the 3rd floor with a balcony facing the lake. The view was exceptional. Probably the best hotel in Munising.

This is our favorite Holiday Inn anywhere. The atmosphere is perfect for a north woods getaway. Get the view of Lake Superior if at all possible. The pool and hot tub area is a great place to relax. The breakfast area has a great view of the lake and is a good place to bring take out food in the evening. We have been here 4 times so far and plan to keep coming back.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GMcH Charming and Friendly
We had a very pleasant stay, extending our stay from 1 night to 2 with a little juggling from the very friendly desk staff.
The room was on the small side but comfortable. Main complaint is that the ceiling was thin so we could hear the guests upstairs walking around. The balcony and the view of the lake from the room were wonderful. The swimming pool was splendid - big, clean and well appointed.
Breakfast was adequate but with a limited selection of bread products for toasting.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by May Visitor Excellent Holiday Inn
I would highly recommend this hotel. The room was very clean and comfortable. The staff was very friendly and efficient. The pool, spa and sauna were very nice.
My only small complaint would be the pool floor tiles were a little slippery.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LB71 Well Worth the Money
With a student attending Michigan Tech, I've driven by this hotel a number of times, and the timing of my trip made a stay in Munising a perfect point to spend the night. The hotel met and exceeded my expectations. I travel a lot for business, and Holiday Inn Express is more or less my first choice for personal travel. This hotel is certainly at the high end of an already fine chain. It's also at the higher end of the scale for cost, but that is probably based on location and seasonal demand. A night there during the winter months is more than competitive.
After about 20 nights a year in Holiday Inn Express hotels across the country, I am tired of the national chain breakfast selection. At least it is consistent, and there is enough variety for about five visits, but the corporation needs to change it up more.
Rooms were very large, quiet, comfortable, and a great selection of TV channels. Typical bathroom amenities, above average quality. I appreciated the Refrigerator and Microwave. If you are staying in the area, this is truly the best place to stay.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sparkler8666 Fun Lodge-y Atmosphere
It's a Holiday Inn but it also has a lodge feel... I really liked it and will go back again when I'm in the UP. I went to pick up a college student at the end of the term (in Marquette the hotels are outrageous at the end of the term.) So I will stay here and drive the 40 minutes the next day to pick up.
The pool area was huge and awesome and late at night I had it all to myself (no doubt due to the off season.)
I'm glad I didn't pay for a lake view room ($30 more) because it was rainy and foggy and you couldn't see the lake at all. I'm sure it would be totally worth it on a nice day but the fog was so thick you couldn't see a thing. So I was glad to save the $.
The staff were great, the breakfast had plenty of protein options.
I'm not really thrilled with the new pancake idea that hotels are doing instead of waffles. The pancakes aren't nearly as good for one thing, and the waffles made the whole room smell yummy. The cinnamon rolls were really good. But second rate apples and bananas are not my idea of fruit for breakfast, maybe with some orange wedges??
Good experience overall, including the reservations I made directly with the hotel. (I had my sister with me and her arthritis makes it difficult for her to walk a distance and they located us in a very easy to access room per my request.)

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by albert1914 Great place when staying in UP
This is a great place to stay when in Munising area. Overall, I feel this is one of the better hotels in UP, just make sure you get a lakeside room so that you can enjoy the sunrise over Pictured Rocks.

This is one of our favorite places to stay. We get here at least twice a year. Great place and they welcome our Chocolate Lab. A great view of the Pictured Rocks and Grand Island. The staff are wonderful and go out of the way to make sure you enjoy the stay.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by bambiliz Great stay - Great place!!!
My second stay, and yet again the staff proved to be super helpful!!! First of all I failed to mention that I was bringing my dog, but after an upgrade in room (not in price ;) ) I was able to bring him and after coming up short with some locals on directions to Grand Island ice caves the hostess gave us detailed directions and a map. The staff are all friendly and very attentive. After a long day of hiking through knee-high deep snow and below zero temps it was nice to come back to the pool, hot tub and sauna. Thanks for making my birthday weekend getaway so enjoyable!

I've stayed here several times. Price is a little high for the area, but amenities are great. Only downside is the sauna, which has flooring mats that make it smell like a tire shop. Other than this, everything is great.

Hotel far exceeded my expectations. Staff were more than helpful. BIG hot tub, pool, and dry sauna was a huge plus. Even though I was not traveling with animals, I appreciate that pets were allowed in the hotel. Only slightly negative comment is that there were 2 dogs left unattended in an adjacent room that were howling. Staff contacted the owners to return to hotel and upon there arrival, there was no further disturbance from the pets. I would certainly recommend this hotel and will stay there again when traveling to this area.

We had an amazing time staying at the Holiday Inn and will be back for years to come. The staff was amazing, grounds were spectacular, easy access for snowmobiles, and we were able to relax when we wanted to. Will be back for sure.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Overworked Individual A Munising Get Away
I wanted to go to Munising for a few days to get away from everything. The Holiday Inn Express was a great place to go to do that. The only issue we had was the walls are kind of thin so we could hear people snoring at night time. To go along with that, if you're not a morning person, you can hear the cleaning staff talking loudly and shutting doors loudly.
Overall, however, this is a place that I would like to return to in the future. The view is beautiful, right on the water and the decore is perfect for that woods U.P kind of a feel.

As an IHG Rewards Club member, I stay at a lot of Holiday Inn Express's. Of all the ones I stay at, this is the best. From the moment you walk in the door, the staff is eager to serve. The view of Lake Superior is spectacular and the whirlpool and pool are awesome. I don't know how you could make this site any better. Oh yeah, the cleaning service is pretty awesome too.

Stopped en route for the night at the Munising Holiday Inn Express and was blown away by the beautiful views! I could see all of Munising Harbor, most of Grand Island and all the way to Sand Point and the old lighthouse. Room was quiet with a balcony. Resort quality accomodations!
Great breakfast! I am gluten-free and there were plenty of choices for breakfast.
Front desk staff were warm and welcoming and provided me with a free play voucher at the casino that paid off sufficient to more than cover the cost of the room! What a great stay!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cline Wonderful room and a warm welcome
It was great to be greeted warmly by the front desk person after I had driven nearly 500 miles. When we had a problem with the TV remote, she cheerfully came to our room and discovered there was a dead battery in the control, so she replaced it and then had to reprogram the TV. Breakfast in the morning was a nice treat.
We also appreciated having access to the Internet.

This was an amazing room. The hotel looks new and the room was amazing. We had a two bedroom suite the overlooked the lake and the view was amazing at sunrise. Room very comfortable. The only negative was the price but after staying, it was well worth it.
