I should have known when this was the only available Inn within a 20 mile radius! This place needs a LOT of TLC. The room was small and musty with windows locked shut. The 13" TV - yes that's right, 13" - was probably manufactured in the 70's. There was exactly one bar of soap in the bathroom - no... More

Had a wonderful 2 night get away for our anniversary. Didnt plan on eating at Timothys resturant, but the smell was so intoxicating we did the first night and had such a devine meal, dined there the next evening. Rom 3 is great. Whirlpool and small deck. Can't wait to go back!

This is a okay hotel for what it is. It is an historic hotel so it does not have the amenities of other hotels or bed and breakfast hotel. So if you are looking for amenities this is not the place for you. But most places in Union Pier require more than a two day stay - especially for rentals.... More

Stayed in room 2. Large, comfortable, clean.......it's a room, nothing fancy. But I came for the beach. And only a short walk away and a pleasant walk at that. It was pleasing to see all the homes and lovely trees and landscaping. The beach is spectacular.....beautiful sand, clear water, rocks and pebbles........as for putting out your little flag on the...

We had a clean, comfortable room with a good bed, good bathroom, fresh paint and carpeting. The restaurant does take over the lower floor at dinnertime, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. I don't see what the complaints are about. We have stayed at the sibling, Lakeside Inn, and our experience here was better. Friendly staff, good coffee in... More

We have been going to Gordon Beach Inn for several years and have seen the inn go down hill over the years. The lovely common area with fireplace and cozy seating has been taken over by Timothy's restaurant, which leaves only your room to sit and enjoy an evening drink or read. They did provide coffee in the morning, around... More

All in all things were nice, clean, and room was big enough. Bathroom had new towels, sink and tub clean. It's not a 5 star hotel and it doesn't claim to be one. Bed was very comfortable, firm with new linens. We would stay here again and recently stayed at there sister property Lakeside Inn, that also was a perfectly... More

Like its sister Inn, The Lakeside Inn, just down the road less than a couple of miles in Lakeside, MI, this place has sadly lost its charm. I can refer you to 50john1234 who best sums it up. The rate for the rooms/suites??(hardly) is out of touch with reality, but they get the rates from uninformed guests who have been... More

What a find this area is and especially this inn. It offers a very quaint setting, comfortable rooms and great dining - the close proximity to the Lake Michigan beach is a plus! You won't be disappointed with time spent here!!!
