The rooms have a nice view of the water which has many freighter and boat traffic. Very relaxing, you can sit outside your room and have a smoke if you like and watch the freighters go by. There is a restaurant right there that sometimes has good door. BUT spotty. It could be a nice way to spend a romantic... More

We recently staying in one of the renovated King rooms and it was just great. It was quiet but there was some road noise where we were located. The rooms have a refrigerator but no microwave. The pool is small and not heated. The continental breakfast is adequate and available every day as well as there is coffee service in... More

My husband and I stayed at the Blue Water Inn for a date night. This hotel is located on the St. Clair River and has great views from all the rooms. We first stayed here 17 years ago a few nights after we got married and have gone back several times since. They have just recently renovated the rooms and... More

This was our first stay (5 nights) at this riverfront motel after years of staying at the St Clair Inn. Even with its faults the St Clair Inn had the charm, history, and location that the Blue Water does not have. However, it suited our purpose of being on the river and the entertainment that that provides (watching the passing... More

Back in April, I booked two rooms for a stay in August. The person staying in the other room called to ask a question concerning our rooms. They did not have a reservation for us :(. The hotel promptly called to tell me they showed my reservation for the following week. They then put the manager on the line who... More

Great place to stay but watch the lady who checks you in. Make sure you are aware of your rates. She might overcharge you. Check your rates online for CAA and also Landry Club. She charged us substantially more than than the CAA rate. $90.00 per night instead of the $81.00. Not only that, we did not get the room... More

I stayed here for two nights with my wife in July to celebrate her birthday. The idea was to enjoy the FANTASTIC FOOD available on-site at THE RIVER CRAB and stay in the "attached" hotel for ease of convenience. The RIVER CRAB was GREAT...the inn rather disappointing. Having visited THE RIVER CRAB restaurant numerous times in the past and thoroughly... More

Had not been to St Clair in a number of years but always loved this place. In town for a party, we booked a king size room. I'd read reviews that the rooms had been remodeled but was unprepared for the first class furnishings and decor, very spacious, 2 comfy reading chairs, table and chairs if you wanted to eat,... More

Took my husband on a surprise mystery trip for his B'Day. We have eaten at their fine restaurant several times in the past but never stayed there. When last there, in 2012 December, they explained about the remodel and how great it turned out. So I read all the reviews here and tips etc so I knew what type of... More

The rooms are all quite modern, beds are sooo comfy, bathroom is very chic. You can spend hours on the balcony just staring at the water. Mostly just toast and coffee for breakfast, but the dinner at the adjoining River Crab Restaurant - awesome!! If you are planning ahead, get the Landry's Select card - it costs $25.00, but that...
