We stayed at this hotel when it was the only place we could get at the last minute. It was clean and had a great breakfast buffet. It is close to downtown St Joe and all the sights it has to offer...restaurants, shops and beach. It was pricey but comparable to the other hotels in the area. We would feel...

Really enjoyed our stay at this holiday Inn, staff was very friendly, the hotel was very clean and the rooms were comfortable. The kids enjoyed the pool and was very clean.

Very well maintained and clean hotel with many views overlooking Lake Michigan. Pool of the lobby is great for the kids. Centrally located, friendly staff, strong wifi and breakfast included. Very convenient to have the Lakehouse restaurant right next door as well. If you're staying at the hotel they offer some discounts to the restaurant too.
