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

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
