I am writing a review because I had read reviews before visiting and I was a little worried but its not that bad. I stayed 2 nights with my 2 kids and the room was clean but outdated, no biggie. Had a good laugh at the very old TV and microwave but they both worked. Bed was comfortable and clean,... More

Our room with kingsize bed was spacious and clean. The bed was comfortable. It is not a high end hotel/motel but is was acceptable. I have had bad nights at other 'better' places where I have paid more so that stuff just happens. The nights (3) we were there during the week were quiet and we heard no noises up... More

Good price.. Not worth it though, the hotel is incredibly dirty. Stains on carpet and furniture and walls. Only reason we slept there was because bed seemed clean. It was a very dark and creepy hotel.. Wouldn't stay there again. I'd pay more somewhere ekse

The place had a Creapy factor to it. Everything was dimly lit and outdated. The restaurant was extra dark for breakfast. The food was very sub-par. It was clean, so that's nice. We ended up wanting to leave early. Cancellation was easy.

Stayed here a few years back for the Berrien County Youth Fair...when it was the Howard Johnsons. It was a dive. Horrible. Now it is better, but still could use some work. One bed was okay, the other was very soft...felt very used. Room overall was average. AC worked well. Room and overall appearance/cleanliness could be cleaned up more. Personnel... More

We were looking for a good price in a hotel on our way to Chicago. I wasnt sure if our kids were coming so I reserved the room for 1 adult. Exiting the freeway we noticed it was a scary neighborhood. We arrived around 11 pm. When I checked in I was asked if I was alone. When I said... More

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.
