This 'place is lacking in everything a hotel should have. the carpets throughout the hotel are old and stained. The service I had at the front counter went from friendly to rude depending on who was taking care of me. The rooms are out dated the tv's are from the 90's. the carpet was so filthy in my room I...

We did arrive on a Friday night and hadnt realised there was a state fair. So the Super-8 motel did send us to the Saw Mill Inn. We were happy that they still had rooms left. Booked for 2 nights so we could do some trails around Grand Rapids. We got a room on the 2nd floor with pool view.... More

There were 7 of us here for the night. The rooms were cold, the thermostats had no effect on the temp, the beds were old and lumpy, there were cigarette burns in the sheets, the halls smelled of ancient cigarette smoke, the reception was surly. On the other hand, the restaurant was very good. The service was friendly, the food... More

We checked in late with 2 dogs and there was no problem. Though the staff member checking us in was not overly friendly they were efficient and the clean comfortable room made up for it. The pool was warm and quiet. The breakfast was included and fantastic. I would defiantly stay again.

After reading all of the reviews I was expecting a dump to be honest. It is in fact an outdated hotel, but my room was spotless, and the rates were reasonable. A lot less then the fancier hotels. Frankly, we were there only to sleep, and let the kids swim.The rest of the time was spent with family outside of... More

We didn't stay here, but went for dinner as it was next door to our beautiful hotel, i.e. convenience. As we like a more relaxed atmosphere we like to eat in the bar. The food was marginal at best. Over coated deep-fried veggies and bagged greens on our dinner salad. Pretty sure bottled dressing as well. The other patrons were... More

Very dated hotel. The air conditioning/ ventilation system was very noisy and annoying making it hard to sleep. The TVs are the old fashioned giants. They give you a set of keys -keys- exterior and interior for your room. The bedspreads and carpet were gross. I was glad we only stayed for one evening. We did have breakfast there and... More

Unfortunately we weren't the only ones in Grand Rapids that night...the first hotel we stopped at was full and they checked with 3 others before finding Sawmill Inn had rooms open. I'm glad i couldn't check the tripadvisor reports for this hotel or I... More

Horrible, horrible service. We came to eat, we cleaned our own table and took our own order to give to the waiter. Won't ever be coming back again. Ever. Didn't stay in the rooms but the restaurant was rotten.
