This is the absolute worst place I have ever stayed in. I honestly don't know how they are in business. I would think they would fix the place up a bit, but it smells, it's old, dirty....... Beds are old, dirty...... Water from the sinks smell so bad you need to buy bottled water at $2 apiece, and they don't... More

We were on a road trip and just needed a place to sleep for the night, so we spent only about 12 hours in the room. The room wasn't very clean (but it wasn't filthy, either), the floor/padding underneath the carpet was mushy (and it felt like the carpet was damp), and there was a residual stink from when the...

We held a function in New Buffalo on Oct 29th. We were looking for an affordable and flexible location to suggest to our guests to stay. (Since the Casino openned prices have at more than doubled in hotels we use to use). the hotel manager really came through for us! He kept adding rooms as the size of our group... More

This place almost ruined our wedding weekend. We love the New Buffalo area and were excited to have our wedding at a vineyard there, but the high hotel prices in the area had us worried that friends and family might not be able to make the trip (seriously New Buffalo, I love you but you are NOT Napa Valley). When... More

DO NOT RESERVE A BLOCK HERE FOR YOUR WEDDING GUESTS! It is a dump! Staples sticking out of hallway carpet injured kids' feet. Pool area disgusting -- even grade schoolers refused to swim there. Rooms hot and dank. Outlet covers pulling off. Despite a phone call assuring us that all rooms had refrigerators, NOT SO! Only the king rooms.

Omg! Are you serious? We came here for a long weekend and wanted to leave the second we checked in. Check-in was extremely long. The halls of the hotel stank like as#! AND IT WAS VERY HOT IN HALLS! The room when we walked in smelled like a dirty toilet and was hotter than hell. The water smelled like disgusting... More

My best friend and I decided to take a girl's weekend trip to New Buffalo, Michigan for some sun, antiques, and good food. We booked two nights at the O'Brien Inn & Resort, before I got around to reading all of these reviews. It was the cheapest hotel in the area that we could find. We weren't quite sure what... More

Stayed for 2 nights, the reason for 2 nights was that I was unable to go elsewhere. The staff was overworked. The front desk employee was unable to keep up with the checking in, helping others get rooms changed around due to the smell of smoke in a non-smoked rooms and the sight of mice running underneath doors. The rooms... More
