I can not say enough about this hotel. The staff was first class. I felt like I was at home. Everyone was friendly and helpful. Smiles all around. I have stayed at 5 star hotels and your staff was friendlier and more welcoming. What ever you are doing it is right. The room was clean and very spacious. The view was beautiful of the lake. Thank you for everything. I would stay here again in a heartbeat.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MamaPapa lovely weekend
I just spent the past weekend in St Joseph MI. at the Holiday Inn Express. IN addition to the lovely weather the staff at the hotel made our weekend quite enjoyable! The front desk staff gave us some wonderful recommendations for bike trails, apple orchards and wineries. And the housekeeping staff was very friendly and cheerful whenever you encountered them.
We will definitely stay at this property again!

I would like to see a power strip installed on the night stand so we can plug in a cell phone. The maid took our 2 used towels that were hanging to dry. She did not need to do that. The pool towels should be full size not minis.

I found the staff very friendly and helpful. The ladies in the breakfast area went above and beyond. The room was clean and spacious. We were greeted with a "hello" by all of the housekeepers as we walked by. The kids enjoyed the pool and the cool art in the lobby. An overall great experience.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Travels2Much Great for Business Trip
I was in town for business, and stayed for 3 nights. The room was on the first floor with a nice porch/sitting area outside. Room was clean and everything was in working order. I requested to be in a quiet area of the hotel, and I was. It was great because I was able to sleep without noise from other guests, the elevator or the lobby noise. I really was happy to see a mini fridge and microwave in the room also.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Duff3 Wonderful staff definitely went the extra mile!
I want to apologize it has taken me a month to write this review. I want to say our stay at St Joes HIE was awesome. We were greeted warmly when we checked in. When we realized one of us forgot our phone charger we went to the desk to see if there was one in the lost and found we could borrow. Ashley was working that night and she was more than happy to let us borrow her own charger for the night which we returned the next day. The staff also let us keep all the wine we purchased at the hotel after we checked out until we were ready to leave later that day. I really have to say they went above and beyond and made our stay fantastic!

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.

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.

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 :)
