Bathroom I couldn't see to put in my contacts. We were tired and desperate for a good bed....you'd think you go to a motel to get some rest...you'd think you could actually get a functional bed...go elsewhere.

This place is filthy. Staff was fairly pleasant while checking in. I asked about my AAA discount and the lady snippily replied you already have a lower price than we would give you, because you booked online. The front lobby appeared clean. When I got to the room it smelled and upon inspection found mold in the bathroom, and the... More

As the title says it's worth pretty much 0 stars so my family are on a vacation and we decide to go to this place and first thing right off the bat it is RIGHT next to a truck stop so you'll constantly hear the announcing and trucks passing by, then once we got our room the smell was horrid...

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
