Just got back from a wonderful weekend trip to Union Pier/Gordman Inn. I disagree with the negative comments. The inn was built in the 1920's and has been maintained with that decor in mind. Plain and simple without all the pamperings of today's typical lodging. Refreshing! I found it very quaint and relaxing in this day of cell phones, laptops... More

It all started with check in. The young woman behind the counter, obviously more interested in her computer screen than me, asked, without actually looking at me, "Checking in?" Not, "Welcome to the Gordon Beach Inn" or even "Hi, can I help you?" Just a somewhat dismissive question that sounded more like "What the hell do you want?" Meanwhile, an... More

For $100 a night, this place is just not worth it. The rooms are incredibly tiny. There is barely any space to walk/stand or put your suitcase down. The walls at this inn and so thin that I can hear the person using the toilet above us. I awoke in the morning to the shower being run above us. You... More

One of the biggest problems with Gordon Beach Inn is that its sister property, Lakeside Inn, is just so darn perfect. We were traveling Labor Day weekend and Lakeside was booked, so we decided to stay at Gordon Beach Inn instead. To be fair, Gordon Beach Inn's website is really upfront that if you are looking for something more quiet,... More

The lobby has been taken over with extra tables for the restaurant which is open to the public. Inn guests do not get preferred parking during restaurant operating hrs nor is there any space given to guests to lounge by the fireplace or anywhere much in the lobby area besides 2 old sofas set haphazardly where there is some space....

Although this hidden treasure can be a little noisy on a busy summer weekend, Sunday through Thursday can make up for it. It's a step back to a time when life was at a slower pace. Stepping into the lobby you feel as if the the year was 1925. the stone fireplace and woodwork look like the set from a... More

I wish the sign had said that! I was in town for my Son's wedding, and what should have been a wonderful quaint experience, quickly turned into the vacation from Hell. On my recommendation the entire Bridal Party, relatives from out of town, and the Parents of the Groom, all booked rooms here. The first impression was very disappointing, but... More

No in-room coffee and lobby coffee is at 8:30. No breakfast or lunch foods available without driving into town. We were there for a family wedding... More

We just got back from a 3 night stay there. We were in town for a wedding that weekend and decided to stay at the Inn… I never write reviews like this, but this place was so bad, I had to warn anyone I can not to stay here. When you walk in, you will feel a cold breeze…. That... More

If you want to sit in a cramped, cold, noisy room, with a 9 inch TV with bad reception and broken remote, old ratty linens, wallpaper peeling from walls, paint peeling off floors and no control of temperature, curtains looked like they were hand sewn from old sheets, this is the place for you. My husband surprised me (and how)... More
