The hotel is easy access and overlooking Lake Michigan. I had one of the rooms facing the lake. Beautiful view even in the winter. Short easy drive to St. Joe. Clean facility and friendly staff. Cons: the rooms could be better soundproofed. The noise was more like an inexpensive motel, and for the price it should be better soundproofed. There were some challenges. They were renovating rooms strong unpleasant paint smell. One elevator was not reliable (there are two) but they didn't mention the second one at the other end, learned that from fellow traveler. Key card kept failing. These may be isolated instances, but if others experience similar situations and don't mention it, they could be on going.
The hotel is close to family in the area. We booked a family suite that has a separate room to place the baby (we had to supply the Pack-n-Play as we could no reserve one; first come basis). The set-up is perfect. There are also twin bunks for older children. A Play station in the room for older kids. There is a decent breakfast included, although seating limited if slightly busy. Free parking.
If you want to minimize noise, get a room on the third floor. Second straight year (Christmas) with kids running around on the floor above. The floors seem to amplify the noise. The last day was miserable weather with wind and sleet. The power went out and they had no back up plan. No generator, just flashlights to wander the darkness to pack up and leave. You cannot predict weather, but they could have a back up plan. The staff was friendly, but had no options to offer. Just refund the last night and take the baby back into the weather to find another place to stay.
Facilities were nice. Close to shopping & restaurants.
Price was excessive for a Holiday Inn Express.
