The staff at this location was very personable and friendly. The hotel and rooms were clean. There is a nice view of Lake Michigan but no beach access due to erosion protection I am told. I will definitely stay her next time we are in the area!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mutti0508 Friendly staff and clean!
My family and I have stayed here several times. We really enjoy staying at the HIExp. The staff is very friendly. The breakfast lady gave my girls buckets filled with things they could use at the beach and all the cleaning and maintenance staff always say hello when passing in the hallways. Breakfast is convenient and offers some variety, rooms are clean, pool is nice, and the fitness center is located near the pool so I was able to run on the treadmill and watch my husband having fun playing with our girls at the pool. We will definitely be back!

We had a wonderful mini-vaca. The hotel was clean, room was large, and the staff was amazing at this location. I highly recommend visiting a couple of wineries, as they were beautiful. We hope to stay again soon!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Kristina2344 Overall Great Exprience, Despite the Spider/Cobbweb-Infested Balcony
We stayed in a suite over Labor Day weekend and were overall very happy with our stay. Our room was a good size for our family of five and the bed was very comfortable. The only drawback was the balcony. Although we did have a very nice view of the lake, unfortunately we weren't able to enjoy it. Our balcony was full of huge spiders and cobbwebs! We instead enjoyed the view from inside the room, as it seemed safer for our children as well as ourselves. The pool was nice and the kids were given free beachballs to play with. Unfortunately, they were not able to receive a sand bucket that the other kids received since they ran out. However, I do think this is a wonderful idea for hotels to give children these types of things. Great idea!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Ania05 room service
Our room service was a bare minimum.
They did not leave enough bath towels nor they leave any fresh hand and wash towels.They did not made one of the bed and did not leave coffee sets for next day.I had to call a room service to bring enough towels for my family and the person helping with it was not polite or apologetic for what has happened.I felt that I was making unreasonable request by asking to provide towels for each member of my family.
If there would be a better hotel in this area I would book my stay in St.Joseph somewhere else.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Pataa5 Just Awesome!
Our stay was absolutely amazing. We loved the hotel, the room, the views, the spa pool, the cookies, and the breakfast. We were pleasantly surprised by all the hotel offered. Room was clean and comfortable, loved the shower, extra long counter and beds. We had a room overlooking the courtyard and also a view of Lake Michigan. Everything was A-1. Would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone wishing to stay in the area.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Alto Yes, I'd stay here again, but . . .
True, the motel is across the road from the Lake, but don't be mislead that you can walk down to the beach. The road and the motel sit on a high, steep bluff with no access to the water from here. There is a nice park about 1/2 mile down the road with benches and picnic tables to allow you to look out at the water.
The accommodations were just fine and the breakfast was ample. The front desk staff weren't particularly helpful and were not able to tell me what my final bill would be. I had been led to believe my first night's lodging would be charged to my card shortly after I made the reservation, but that was not the case. The full bill was due upon checkout, which was fine, but I thought I had been double billed for the first night and the clerk couldn't tell me one way or another. I don't think he was trying to be unhelpful, he just was clueless. Lack of training?

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Jackie1224 Ok hotel
Ten years ago we boycotted Holiday Inn because the staff of the HI in Marshall, MI stole our camera; however, this was a last minute trip and the hotel we wanted was booked so we settled on HI. It has a good location close to Silver Beach and St. Joe. The girls at the front desk were totally bored and put out of their way to help us when we got there. We booked a lakeside room - view was ok but between us and the lake was Redarrow Highway - a very busy and noisy road! The bed was aweful - for me very uncomfortable and the pillows were terrible - the firm were very squishy. We used the pool and hot tub which was nice. The ladies in the breakfast room were very friendly and kept everything stocked and clean.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 Feels old
I stayed at this hotel about 10 years ago, and I wonder whether it's been updated since. Flakes of dust and dirt floating in the uncleaned coffee maker; an old easy chair with mismatched cushion; no plastic cups for cold drinks.
Plus, a relatively high room rate for an unremarkable hotel on a weeknight.
The unprofessional hotel guide details how much guests -- who apparently are assumed to be thieves -- will be charged for taking a towel or the completely unappealing coffee maker.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nat500 Great hotel!
Great family friendly hotel. We have been to this Holiday Inn Express several times now, and I can honestly say we have never been disappointed! The staff is always friendly, the rooms and lobby are always very clean and the free breakfast has a good selection of food. Something for everyone. I also liked the fact that the hotel was close to the beach and only a couple of minutes away from down town St. Joe. I highly recommend this place :)

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Johnd46 Nice Hotel
Nice place. Friendly staff. Convenient to downtown.My only disappointment was I requested a balcony when I made my reservation some weeks in advance, but wasn't informed that I couldn't have a balcony until I arrived. I would have appreciated knowing that earlier, so I could have considered options.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TriFan A wonderful stay
I want to thank the staff for making our stay an extremely pleasant one. Everyone, especially the front desk staff , is professional, friendly and all went out of their way to accommodate us. I am looking forward to a return stay next year when we once again attend the ironman 70.3 that take place in the benton harbor/ st. Joseph area.

The gentleman that checked us in was very unpleasant and did not make us feel welcome at all!!! We have stayed here every summer for many years and have never had that experience. Also there were never cookies available and the kids look forward to them.

This hotel was extremely clean! Thoroughly enjoyed our stay!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Granny74 Clean comfortable room with great service
We have visited the St. Joe's area every year, for the past 30 years, but have never stayed in the Holiday Inn Express. We were pleasantly surprised, and enjoyed the comfort and cleanliness of the room, the indoor pool, the delicious breakfast with the very accommodating staff. Overall, it was a great experience, especially, and considering it was mid-July and the height of the summer tourist season.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AdventureMomof4 Loved St Joe & room was huge
The size of the room was amazing and met all our needs with four small kids and two adults. We really liked the microwave/ refrigerator/ sink area too. Breakfast was great and the workers were very helpful and sweet. We spent a morning at the pool and had a really good time. It was a little far from the beach, but parking was adequate an easy location. The room was a little dated, but we loved the kid room, tables, and extra seating. Next time will ask if we could have a room with lake view. We biked down to the beach every day and had a fantastic time. We will be back!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by nurseandmomof4 Loved the family suite
We had a very pleasant stay. Nice and close to the beach. We were pleasantly surprised with the family suite. Very spacious! The kids loved the bunk beds and loved having "their own separate room". They were also thrilled that there was a PlayStation even though we weren't in the room much to play it. Breakfast was a plus. Linda in the breakfast area was very sweet and helpful. Would definitely stay here again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by michimimi Just a very pleasent stay
A very pleasent stay ! We were in St Joseph for the 4th of July Fireworks at Silver Beach and this was the closest available room to pre book. Prices were about $30.00 more than usual, for this holiday weekend however.
The staff was nice, hotel room was spotless and fresh. No deodorizer smell like other hotel rooms we have had.
The desk clerk was right about leaving early for the firework show, as there were no parking places anywhere in town. Most of the fireworks were not at the "end" of the pier out into the water. Most of them were at the shoreline by the "ticketholders only" seating. We did see a small amount of fireworks at a small outlook near the hotel but the show was very late, very short and disappointing.
Hotel wise , I would recommend staying here anytime though. One question? Why no bacon , english muffins or wafflemaker like a competitive hotel has. Breakfast was a bummer.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Frank521 Stay Just OK
I booked this hotel because of the good location but there’s nothing differentiating it from other Holiday Inn hotels. Front desk staff was courteous but not particularly friendly. When asked if early check in was available we were told that check in was at 3:30 and to come back then. No effort was taken to see if there were rooms available even though I thought this was one of the benefits of being a platinum member. In addition, I didn’t get recognized as one either upon check in. This is the third location where this happens. It’s starting to seem to me that the Priority Club program doesn’t mean anything other than getting points for free stays.
