I gave an "Excellent" rating due to the value. It is not a 4-star hotel and very shouldn't be rated against such. It is an older, family run business. I have a feeling the negative reviews by others judged this hotel based on expectations of what you'd expect with more expensive chains. We paid UNDER $60. The mattresses were new... More

I was pleasantly surprised with the hotel. It was clean, friendly staff and conveinently located. The free breakfast that was served was also good- way better than just cold cereal. Will stay there again

If this place is your only option find a box and stay on the beach, you will be much happier. Our room was dirty, the bed linen had hair on it, there was a funky odor throughout the building, our room had brackets screwed into the ceiling and wall for smoke detectors but the detectors were not there, there were...

We stayed for one night during the week. It was an ok place to stay for a night. It's an older motel so it won't look as clean as newer places but it was as clean as it could be. The shower worked, toilet flushed, tv worked, lights worked and doors locked. It was convenient to the downtown area and... More

Booked room for 1 night during South Havens Blueberry fest, unfortunately since I waited so long to plan this trip we had no other choice but to book this room despite the terrible reviews already posted on Trip Advisor. I had hoped for better, but we were SEVERLY let down. Over all exterior appearance is very poor, upon checking in... More

We stayed here one night after attending a wedding in the area. Every other hotel/motel was booked so we had no other options. It seemed like it was built and furnished in the 80's and that probably goes for when it was last cleaned properly. We found someones old socks in our room and the air conditioning in the bedroom...

I was extremely apprehensive after seeing other reviews posted. Check-in was easy and we noticed dead bugs in the window between the curtain of what appeared to be the hotels living quarters. We inspected the room for bedbugs prior to bringing our items in and did not see any. Room was definitely dated and cleanliness was poor. Lots of activity... More

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
