I arrived not impressed with the inn. I told the woman right off I wanted to cancel. I couldn't do it. Why? Because I set the reservation through Expedia. (I didn't know which I site I had used, I just made the reservation online as I was in a hurry. Actually, I had used Travelocity.) So I asked what did... More

Horribly disgusting!!! Smoking is allowed at this hotel (supposedly nonsmoking) so our room had the worst stench of smoke along with some Awful spray to attempt to cover the smell, which gave me a headache & made my eyes water. Our clothes and belongings had a strong cigarette smoke smell when we left, after one night. I'd rather sleep in... More

Three nights, four days at a very reasonable price; indoor pool clean and well-maintained. The facilities are not fancy; this is a motel within a short drive of downtown South Haven (few can afford downtown South Haven without driving there, it's very expensive to hire a room there!). This is an unpretentious place run by what appears to be one... More

The 1st room we walked into smelled nasty. Went & bought a candle. Did not help. The room felt dirty. Changed our room smell was better but taking a shower was a challenge. Water did not drain. Wiped floor (bathroom) white towel turned black. Walking around room bottom of feet turned black! Do NOT stay at this hotel!!!

We decided last minute to join family for the annual Blueberry Festival in South Haven, and of course there were no available rooms for miles around, except for this place. That should have been our first clue. Yes, we knew it was old, and our expectations were low, but old and dated is no excuse for filthy. The shower walls... More

This is the only room we could get near Saugatuck over the 4th of July. The 25 minute drive back and forth to Saugatuck was a good deal, as the rooms in Saugatuck were 1) all booked up and 2) at least double the price. However the room was in poor shape and in need of repair with holes in... More

Nice little motel without the huge price of South Haven . It is located just outside town and easy to find . They have a friendly and helpful staff as well . I didn't wake up early enough to get breakfast. Nice size rooms too .

My wife and I had a hard time finding a hotel to accommodate our black lab during our trip from The quad cities in Illinois to the Upper Peninsula. Great Lakes Inn had a very reasonable pet fee of $10. The room wasn't fancy, but it was clean! The bathroom was recently remodeled. We had a great nights sleep. Staff... More

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
