This was our 1st trip to South Haven and only an overnight trip for my husband, dad, & I. Many of the other accomodations required a 2 night stay because it was Memorial weekend. I was able to book one night here. We had our day planned out in south haven, so we just needed a room to stay the... More

I was very apprehensive about checking in after reading other reviews. This is an older independent hotel that is in the midst of an upgrade. New management will be upgrading rooms this spring. This is not a 5 star resort. It does have some wear and age but clean and livable. I was able to stream movies over the hotel... More

First I would like to say to the persons that wrote mediocre reviews about this quaint area and inn have got it all wrong. I couldn't have had a better weekend. At first I was hesitant about staying there based on the reviews that I read, but then I thought this must be like the movies when you read a... More

I can't put into words how awful this hotel is. I'm laid back and normally not really picky about where I stay as long as its clean. This place had bugs, bullet holes, mold, blood, and urine in it. Good thing we brought our own sheets because everywhere else was booked! Seriously, don't do it. It's worth the extra money.

Very basic motel that is in need of updating. Curtains do not keep the light out (Car lot next door), shower drips, beds are old etc. Room does have a fridge and microwave. Brought my own pillow which is a must as the motel pillows ran out of life a few years ago. No breakfast available but room has a... More

I stayed here for two days several years ago. Only rooms I could find during a visit for a class reunion. Outside doors did not fit (at least 1/2 opening at bottom of door — allowing bugs to enter. Bugs on walls, especially bathroom which was not clean. Did not notice poor door clearance until middle of night in rainstorm... More

Horrible - that is the only word to describe it. Expedia should NOT have this available on their site. Bathroom horrible - rust on fixtures, part of wallpaper missing, floor filthy, no hair dryer, etc. etc. I have a bunch of pictures showing how bad this place is. We were afraid to leave because in July everything around there was... More

I cannot stress enough how bad this place is. Dirty, smelly, dark, and scary. Bathroom door does not open completely as it gets stuck on the floor. The door was covered in dirty hand prints. The smoke detector was removed from the room probably so people could smoke in a non-smoking room since it smells of second hand smoke. Wish... More
