Our room was at one end of the resort and everything else...lobby, pool ,restaurant, was at the other end of the building. If anyone in your group has trouble walking, request a room close to the lobby.

My husband and I stayed at the Marina Grand resort over 4th of July weekend and loved every minute of it. We chose this hotel over the sister hotel because we liked the more modern aesthetic. They let us check in early (awesome for a holiday weekend), the rooms were nice and clean (loved the fireplace), and all the amenities... More

Even though there were negative reviews, we decided to give it a try. (it was one of the few resorts on the water) Unfortunately, the reviews were spot on. Although we could see boats outside of our window, it really wasn't worth it. We should have stayed at a chain hotel and saved several hundred dollars. Three of us stayed... More

A group of friends and I rented a 2 BR suite at this hotel for the weekend for $1100. We expected a luxurious weekend for the cost - but it was far from luxurious. Our room was not ready at the time they told us it would be. The room was also not cleaned properly - still crumbs on the... More

My daughers and I (4 in total) reserved a room overlooking the marina, with two beds. The view was great. However, I was surprised and rather disappointed in the size of the room, which was much smaller than pictured and expected. There was very little room to move around and no place to put luggage (l piece each). The beds... More

As previous reviewed, the walls are pretty thin and you can hear a lot. The hallways could use paint and were very warm. The elevator carpet was stained. Our room was very clean however. We had a king room with a marina view which was nice. Bathroom was large and well appointed. The bed was comfortable. However there were a... More

This is our second time here this year, we love it for our family outings, the place has everything, the front desk is so nice and always there with a smile and will assist in anything, Inga, Keenan, Will, and everyone who welcomes you with a warm smile. We also like the free items they provide, ice, laundry, use of... More

Being from the Metro Detroit area, before booking this trip, I had never even heard of New Buffalo. After doing some research on the internet for places on the west side of the state, we found the Marina Grand Resort. This place was everything shown in the pictures on their website and more. If you want a nice, reasonably prices,... More

Went over 4th of July weekend with my boyfriend (ages 25-33) and had a great time. We usually travel to Wisconsin Dells for the 4th but decided to try New Buffalo. The service at the hotel was great, including front desk, cafe, and even housekeeping. Hotel provides free beach crusier rentals and unlimited free coffee- which tastes better than Starbucks....

First time here. We had a suite. Great bed. Nice balcony with good view and comfortable chairs. Kitchen with all appliances but missing some expected basics like a full coffee machine and disposal. Nice Televisions. Good service. Rooftop deck too low to see good sunset. Very small pool so don't go for that reason. Walking to town and beach. A... More
