Oh my god I don't know where to begin. We read the reviews and was a little nervous but sometimes people can over do it and expect too much but let me tell you we paid 90 bucks and we expected the room to at least be clean. So to begin when we pulled up it had every sign of... More

This was the last hotel with any vacancies in the St.Joe/Benton Harbor area. We were travelling without reservations (our normal style) and were at the mercy of room availability. Just before we got to Benton Harbor, we booked our reservation on Priceline.com. The booking was for a room with 2 King beds. (we were travelling with 2 children). When we... More

Easy freeway access. Rooms have usable balconies. Friendly staff, albeit not fully seasoned. Nice pool and spa. Hotel is dated and showing its age but adequate. Since there is no neighborhood to speak of, I'm confused about safety concerns mentioned in oth er reviews. Would stay again for the price.

The ladies working the desk the day I came to check-in were very polite and helpful, Kelly who worked that night was amazing. I work at a hotel in Chicago and would love to have her on my staff. I asked so many questions and she never acted like I was annoying. GREAT JOB KELLY! The hotel does need a... More

We stayed at this hotel as a last resort. We had failed to make reservations for Labor Day weekend, and literally every hotel in St. Joseph, Stevensville and Benton Harbor were booked up except for this one. I now understand why. The hotel was probably very nice when it was first built but it has not be maintained well. It... More

When the hotel first came into view we thought it might be run down due to the area looking that way. We were pleasantly surprised. The hallways smelled a litttle however, even though the room could use some attention, it was clean and had clean towels and what you would expect in a room. The pool and spa was very... More

They claim to be recently renovated, that is a lie. When we arrived there was no one at the front desk, we waited at least 15 min. before someone showed up. By the way the front doors to the hotel are locked after 11pm, and you must use the intercom to be let in, how safe can this area really... More

My dad and step-mom were competing in the triathlon that takes place in Benton Harbor every year. We went to this hotel for a while to hang out with them after the race, they stayed there, I did not (I had a reservation, but cancelled). The room was okay, nothing special, but what do you expect at the price? The... More

Grossly Dirty, False Advertising, Nightmare Galore! The internet ad read “A total renovation of this property was completed in April 2012.” This is not true!...unless you mean the outside of the building was painted. To our dismay, we found everything disgustingly filthy. Upon entering their so-called suite (which is merely two adjoining rooms), we were in a state of horror!... More
