Filthy! Mattresses look like they were from dumpsters! Hairs on bedsheets, cigarette burn hole in mattress cover, dim light in bath, bath/shower both spray at same time, no stopper in sink, no remote for tv, stained walls, stained curtains,etc, etc..... Gave it one star because the room AC WORKED, (one speed)

We were in a pinch trying to find something last minute and I booked this hotel. We stayed in room 320. It is semi-functional at best. The sheets were clean and beds were comfy. The A/C unit was working & the little bar fridge came in handy. When we requested 2 more towels, we were told that they were in... More

... until I compared it to other motels I have rated as average and it didn't compare to those. It is a truck-stop motel. … measuring it by those standards it is an OK place. Did find a couple of maintenance issues. 1) There isn’t a door stop on the door so the handle and security lock have put holes... More

We were late booking a hotel for the Benton Harbor Steelhead 1/2 Triathlon and this was the only hotel left. The room was dirty and falling apart. Not only were there possible health issues related to lack of cleanliness; there were safety issues related to electrical outlets and extension cords. DISGUSTING!

Myself and a friend stayed at this location while working in the area doing phone book distribution. We both broke out with some kind of rash after coming home, staying only 2 nights in the room. My co-worker had a much more severe rash situation than did I. We ended up having to go to the doctor because of the... More

We were in Benton harbour for labour day weekend. We are from the UK and were on a road trip so we were only booking motels a few day in advance which was fine but we clearly over looked this holiday weekend!! We didn't expect much as this was the cheapest place we have ever booked. However it was much... More

My boyfriend and I TRIED staying here. We were a little cautious because we had just left a crappy motel with dead bugs on the floor and besides that, Knights Inns aren't known for their cleanliness. But we were staying the weekend and wanted a cheap room! I asked to see the room first and the guy at the front... More

This place is a total truck stop place. The bedding appeared clean and the bathroom too, but the carpet was old and dirty looking. There was a dirty looking recliner and such, but we survived it. Just a place to sleep and go. The bed was rather old too...you kind of sink in. Should have camped in south haven like... More

Very low quality facilities. Try to plan and avoid having very little choices. It needs an overhaul, specially the beding. I is in truck stop, therefore noisy. People are nice.... There is not a lot to say to get to 200 words. No muy bueno, pretty bad, it is a aceap place, but it was also expensive. It could
