This is the only hotel in Grand Haven that is right across from the water. The state beach is directly across the street. We had a beautiful view of the lake and the lighthouse from our room. The hotel has wrap around decks on the upper level with plenty of room for everyone to get outside and enjoy the sunset... More

My cousins and I stay at the Blue Water Inn twice a year, off season. The service is friendly, the view tremendous, the atmosphere casual, and the experience always great. It feels like a home away from home. We love having a kitchen so we can relax "at home" when we don't feel like leaving the lake or getting out... More

Bluewater was nice. Nothing sparkly and upscale about it but the affordable off season rates made staying right across from the State Park Beach a reality. Staff was friendly and helpful. We had the smallest room with the smallest bath and it was "cozy" but it worked for us. What should be a super view is intruded on by the... More

If you want to pay a premium to stay in what feels like a college-age kid's first apartment then reserve a room at Bluewater's off-site property near downtown. First off, the apartments are sparsely appointed with second-hand hotel furniture so you don't want to spend time there. Secondly, the bathroom and kitchen are in desperate need of an update. The...

They charge alot for a few square feet -- but the location, friendliness and cute factor can't be beat! Once you have stayed here you are spoiled for anywhere else in Grand Haven. Each room is comfortable clean unique and well equipped for such a small space. Always a nice group of fellow guests in the shared space of picnic... More

I rate it excellent because it is an excellent value. Our room #4 was upstairs but the young woman working there carried our two large bags up the steps and was so sweet. The room was small but very clean with a little table and chairs. They provided wine glasses which we used to enjoy a bottle of wine on... More

Another great trip to the Bluewater Inn and Suites! These nice comfy clean rooms have everything one needs to have a great stay at the beach. Even the most basic room includes a decent size fridge and microwave. Located right across the street from the state park, we come back each year at least a couple of times and we... More

The out side of the hotel looks fun and inviting. It sits across the street from lake Michigan and there is a view of the park as well. Room/Suite #3 has the best view on the second floor. I found it to be a bit pricy for the value. This one had a kitchenette that was well equipped. But the... More

super view, no phone, no tv, just you and Lake Michigan. We will stay there again this year. Only down side is wi-fi leaves much to be desired, which would have been fine except when the days of rain limits activities.
