Recent guest reviews

Stayed at Breaker's Resort for three nights. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was spacious and clean. There was a great view of the lake from the balcony! Would stay here again and recommend to others.

Very pleasant experience. Would definitely come back to this hotel.

Great room with great views. We stayed in early fall so we could leave the balcony door open and listen the the waves at night, very relaxing.

The hotel is a bit dated however the view never gets old! Coffee on the balcony, watching the sunrise was awe inspiring. We'd stay there again for sure.

Great Hotel, Great Staff, really good breakfast included & room amenities more then I expected, Had a walk out balcony to Lake Huron. Location just perfect for the activities we planned. Real nice indoor pool along with a nice sized hot tub. Everything was clean & well maintained. Staff friendly & well informed to answer our questions. They are also pet friendly a must for us.

The hotel was clean and well maintained. Breakfast was provided and was great. The pool and hot tub were clear and centrally located. They also had an elevator for easier transportation of luggage.

Nice location with great lakefront view. Ground level gives you private beach like access to beach with no outsiders. Awesome! Best during summer for lake swimming.

We stayed for one night on our drive from the lower to upper peninsula. Located minutes from the bridge with a pretty view of the island. Staff was very friendly and informative upon check in. Our room had a great view. The fireplace was very cozy, the beds comfy, and the room itself was clean. House keeping did forget to empty the mini fridge from the previous guest's stay.. luckily there wasn't anything yucky in there so it really wasn't a big deal. We didn't have time to go in the pool, but it looked nice. Breakfast was satisfactory and was just what we needed to start the day, plus bring some fruit & coffee for our drive. This hotel was the perfect location for us, and we plan on returning in the next several weeks for a trip up to the Soo Locks.

Family vacation to Mackinac Island and staying in St Ignes. Hotel was OK. We were on the 4th floor, had a balcony overlooking the beach. Elevator took us up to the 4th floor but then we still had to go down about 5 steps with our luggage. Could only use the luggage cart to those steps. Went into room and the door hit the sink. Had a refrigerator but no microwave. You had to go back up to the office if you wanted to use the microwave. The faucet on sink was loose, and very hard to turn on, the grandkids had a hard time with that. Small bathroom. Bed was very bouncy, which the kids liked, every time you turned over it was just like a waterbed. Breakfast was OK. Beach was nice. Watched the Fireworks right from our balcony.

Very nice place to stay. Quiet and reasonable rates..

We were definitely happy in Breakers. May be because of short stay, just 2 days. Things which were really worth to mention: beatiful lakeside view from our room, king size bed with very comfortable matress, hot jakuzzi in the pool area. It's absolutely normal hotel which goal is to have a rest and enjoy St. Ignace walling around, make a trip to Mackinac island. I absolutely reccomend this hotel for short staying purpose.

We stayed only one night but it was good.Nice area.

Great hotel on beach side. Stayed for overnight. Got extra comforters as needed.

Easy check-in. As a "senior citizen", I appreciated being given a first-floor room near an entrance. However, getting to my room involved going down about seven steps. This complicated my ability to drag a heavy suitcase to the room.

Nice but needs updating . Hallway walls need to be painted. Lots of chipped paint . Bed , not so comfy

We were upgraded to a spacious lake-view room, which was a pleasant surprise. You can walk to a few good eating places, etc.

Hands down the best value for my money. The place was sparkling clean the room was beautiful. The hotel staff that I encountered were friendly, and helpfull. I would not hesitate to return And would not hesitate to recommend the Breakers to anyone who asks.

Very nice hotel with nice continental breakfast. Very clean and nice pool and hot tub area.

Overall a nice stay. I'd stay there again and recommend to other people. Pros: Friendly staff - all of them lobby, housekeeping, maintenance Check in/out was quick Clean rooms Comfortable beds Flat screen TV's in room Fireplace in room Refrigerator in room Pool and hot tub Wifi (free) Cons: Parking - parking is shared with the HI express so there may not be a space near your room, but it's also not a terrible walk (it could be if you have mobility issues) Pool - the pool is nice but it's **not heated** so the water is very cold. The kids though will like it because kids don't care. The hot tub is nice though. Pool 2 - the area outside the pool is tile flooring and very slippery (because it's wet) and you have to walk by it to get to the elevator if you're coming in from the south end. Elevator - there's only 1 and it's more towards the north end so if you have walking/mobility issues, I'd suggest getting a room in the center of the hotel otherwise both the south and north ends there's stairs you'll have to walk up/down stairs. It's not a lot of stairs but people who have issues with stairs would have issues Lobby - the lobby itself is nice but it's in a separate building and a walking distance from the hotel to the building the lobby is in. Wifi - I was in the south end of the hotel and the wifi signal was kind of weak and slow and streaming media seems to be filtered (things like Netflix, Hulu, etc don't work). Vending - they could use more ice machines (on each floor rather than every other) and as for actual vending there seemed to only be one which was next to the pool. There is refrigerators in the room so I'd suggest taking beverages and snacks with you. Overall the pros outweigh the cons, the things I mention in the cons are things people would likely want to know. I'd stay there again and will be booking again in the next month or so. I've stayed at many hotels in St Ignace and this is a very nice one that's affordable.

Stayed for 2 nights, day tripped to Mackinac Island with family. Clean, comfortable rooms with balcony overlooking lake & island. Very close to ferry docks. Great price for rooms. Decent breakfast bar. Kids loved the pool. Would definitely stay here again.
