Great hotel, very friendly staff. Quick survey is turning out to be not so quick. Hotel still excellent.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by IndyLittleGiant Great option in St. Joseph
The Cliff's Notes: Have stayed here before and will do so again. Pretty much enough said.
The full story: Having been to St. Joseph several times for long weekend family vacations, my family feels this is one of your safest and best bets for couples and families (not for party animals... no bars nearby).
With this location and the necessity to drive to the beach and downtown, the price tag is high as there are one or two similar quality options downtown (thus walking distance to everything) for the same price, but they fill up extremely fast.
So, if you're set on St. Joseph, pony up and pay a little extra to stay at the Holiday Inn Express. It really is a great hotel. You also know exactly what you're getting - a clean facility, good sized rooms and bathrooms, professional staff, and the backing of a national brand should anything ever go wrong
There are some real horror stories out there of the other places in town, and I've heard several of them firsthand. With all the money you'll spend on vacation or a business trip, spend the extra few bucks to stay here. There's something to be said about the comfort of a good home base (especially in case weather is bad).

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Ostara192 A pretty Good Place to Stay in St. Joseph
Returning to the south from Mackinac Island, we heard St. Joseph was " The Riviera of the Midwest" , so we wanted to stop here. This is a fine place to stay in St. Joseph, but it is a little far from the "action" of the beach and downtown. The reception staff was efficient and gave us a good recommendation for dinner. The room was ok. Breakfast was a mixed bag: The juice machine didn't work, so that was a disappointment, however the new pancake machine was both fun AND produced a very good, albeit very flat, pancake. They somehow managed to ruin hardboiled eggs, which are normally a favorite. They almost tasted fake. Don't know what that was all about. The sausage was horrible. The folks taking care of the buffet were very friendly and helpful. Basically, it's a pretty good place to say in St. Joseph, but it isn't cheap.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by traveller8 clean and spacious room; nice view of Lake Michigan
Don't expect to use the Wi-Fi there; it only worked about 10% of the time that I tried to use it.
Room with kid's suite is great if you have kids with you.
Pool is teeny.
Housekeeping staff is nice and room was clean.
Not near the beach or downtown St. Joseph; you can't walk anywhere so a car is a MUST.
Bed was rather hard.
Front desk staff was never friendly; seemed like they wished all the guests would go away so they could get back to their web-surfing.

Staff seem to make an effort to be friendly. Stop staying their after the staff would not find the fan that was removed from the fitness center. The fitness center is next to the pool and is always warm.
