I expected so much more. Average rooms, dirty bathroom and a lovely view of a crane and gravel. Our room was never cleaned nor did we receive clean towels. Plenty of other hotels to choose from, lesson learned. However the outdoor bar staff is friendly and couldn't have been more fun. Try one of Kevin's Dirty Martini's, they will make... More

Nice room and friendly, accommodating staff. Clean and comfortable. So far so good. Okay that was the first hour I was there. Now that I have been here for three days I can give a much more informed review. The room decorh is nice and the staff is nice. So the initial walk-in review, above, remains the same. Now for...

A full service spa, indoor outdoor pools and hot tubs, fitness center, free wifi... It goes on and on!! A must try if your in the area. The only negative is that the rooms are a... More

All the staff and management we encountered were friendly, helpful and work for you to have a pleasant... More

This was my first time staying at this newer property with my team. After a long day of travel from Calgary to Chicago and then the roadtrip here, I began to unwind immediately after an easy, fast check in at the desk. My room was large with a water view which, if it wasn't March, I would have spent more... More

Don't go,there. Not what you expect. Go to the Harbor Grand or Marina Grand in New Buffalo for a much better experience, at the same price point. The room was clean. but some upkeep as in painting, knicks, and decor needed to be addressed. THIS SET THE ENTIRE TONE. It had an overall "beat up" and "cheap" appearance as if... More

Please disregard all previous negative reviews. We stayed for two nights and had the most pleasant stay. All reception staff, grounds staff and wait staff in the bar and restaurant were extremely accommodating, friendly and professional. Room was perfect, clean and quiet. Check in was quick and easy. Food was quickly and excellently prepared. Location is great and convenient. So... More

So glad we chose to stay at this hotel. We were greeted by a friendly front desk; seamless check in and up to a room with a view of the lake. Rooms were very clean and roomy, for our family of four. We enjoyed on-site pools, tiki bars, exercise facilities and much more. We didn't get a chance to use... More

We stayed over the Fourth of July weekend. When I booked the room I was told I could see the sunset from my balcony and the fireworks on the 4th. Neither of of these we true. You cannot see the sunset at this time of the year from the balcony facing the harbor. The elevator was very slow and creaky.... More
