This hotel is in a wonderful location and has a great staff. The room was large and nice but the entire place was shop worn and needed to be redone. The hotel was expensive for the lack of care that was shown in the maintenance. The rugs are dirty and worn. The elevators really filthy if you are charging exorbitant... More

A fairly pleasant hotel, but could definitely use freshening up. Nice outdoor sitting area, but indoor public areas are fairly dark. Rooms are okay but not special for the price. Service was good. The restaurant is pretty good with a very nice outdoor area for lunch or dinner on a sunny day overlooking the lake.

My family of 5 (3 small children) stayed here for one night in late August for an end of the summer trip. The weather was iffy for the full weekend so we chose to stay just on Friday night. The hotel is in a great location but the rooms are a bit dated. We had a 1 bedroom suite with... More

I spent a lot of time in my youth in St. Joe. The property where the hotel sits used to be a bank. (My Grandparents lived in the Apt building just East of the hotel) The hotel is somewhat over priced but so are all the other hotels in the area and none of them sit on top of the... More

We recently booked a stay for 3 nights here with a family of 5. My wife and I are always willing to pay a premium for location which is what you truly pay for here. We parked our car on Sunday and did not touch it until we left on Wednesday. Very easy walk to the beach, restaurants, shops, etc.... More

I visit Saint Joseph once or twice a year, and this was my first stay at the Boulevard Inn. I was able to book my stay here in late-August on TripAdvisor 2 weeks ahead of my arrival date, and I had no problems checking in. The staff was courteous—though a bit curt, I might add. I do travel a lot... More

We have stayed here in the past, so I knew what to expect. The only reason we chose this hotel is for the location. It's a short walk across the street and down some stairs to the beach and you're right in the middle of shopping and food stops. The service is nothing to write home about. No one goes... More

Spent two nights at the Boulevard Inn because of a family wedding. Made three reservations for three rooms over nine months in advance and requested we have adjoining rooms. When we arrived, one room was on the 7th floor, another on the 4th, and we were on the 3rd! Is that adjoining?? When I questioned the various locations...not even being... More

Great location overlooking the lake, just steps to Silver Beach and all downtown attractions. The hotel was clean but is showing it’s wear and tear. The lighting in the bathroom was abysmal. It was incredibly humid in the hallways / common areas, but room was comfortable. Not worth the high prices in my opinion.

Without a doubt this place was very enjoyable to stay at, a little dated, but was simply relaxing, loved the rustic woodwork and flooring in the Main Lobby and Restaurant. Plus foot steps away from anything you would want to do in St. Joe's
