We have visited the Blue Water Inn twice now and both times the owners went out of their way to make our stay a great one. While it might not be luxurious in that sense, it cannot be beat for location and comfort. As I said as well, the owners are great as well and we will be back for... More

Our visit to Grand Haven was for the purpose of visiting our Michigan “snow bird” friends before their southern trek and our timing was “out of season” for most purposes. The weather wasn’t great and the Michigan colors were not yet in full bloom. But knowing we would be re-visiting upon their return next summer, I was interested in checking... More

How can a hotel be shabby AND awesome? When it is sprawling, aging hotel with a fabulous, beachside location. I am a professional photographer and wanted to take night photos of the lighthouses, so lodging within walking distance of the pier was important to me. The Bluewater is straight across the street from the Grand Haven State Park Beach (and... More

We stayed at the downtown units. Four very nice one bedroom apartments. An older, but nicely maintained place. Great for a pair of empty nesters, or for a family with smaller kids that wouldn't mind an air mattress or crib. Large kitchen, fully equipped saves you lots of money on the meal, yet walking distance to downtown and two blocks... More

We just returned from a weekend stay at Bluewater Inn & Suites. We were in town for the Salmon and Wine Tasting Festival and it did not disappoint. The rooms were clean and well kept . Our view off the deck overlooking the beach across the street was as spectacular as the service. Mike and his family went out of... More

We stayed here over the weekend. This place for sure is nothing fancy. If you are looking for something close to the beach, this is the place. The rooms are very small. The place is very dated. Not convenient for downtown- very long walk. Nice shared upper deck for lounging.

I was not impressed with this place. Two friends and I booked for a getaway. We booked the room with a lake view. We didn't realize the deck is shared by all guests, so no privacy, though the view was wonderful. The air conditioner was not working at all, and it was hot and very humid the first two days,...

My partner and I stayed in one of the four units at BWI's "Downtown" location while visiting my parents, who live nearby. While the 50's curb appeal was interesting, our unit was in desperate need of a renovation. The faucet in the tub leaked from where it met the wall, and the two window A/C units didn't keep up with... More

This was our third time staying at the Inn. We were very surprised at the run down condition of the place. We had a suite for four overlooking the lake. A bedroom with a queen size bed and a hide a bed in the living room. The hide a bed was impossible to sleep on. We asked for a roll... More

We had been here two times previously. This time we reserved two rooms, traveling with anther couple. The location is Wonderful and they are great at customer service. The place is not for everyone, rooms are small and there are narrow halls and stairs. Only problem we had was a noisy air conditioner. Really like this place, will be back.
