I do not understand why this place isn't packed every night. This is a beautiful spot for a get away. I have stayed here many times over the past 20 years. The staff have always been friendly, the room are clean and nicely furnished. The setting, however, is what makes this place a gem. It is just minutes off I-94,... More

I've been staying at the Spring House Inn for over 10 years. It used to feel like a classic, fresh, warm and inviting Inn, but unfortunately has deteriorated to the quality of an abandoned antique shop (nothing appears to have been renovated, including the carpeting, doors, bedding, bathrooms, etc.) - all in all felt a bit unsanitary, musty and outdated,...

Thank you to those who reviewed this beautiful hotel earlier, and made this an obvious choice for my visit to the Sand Dunes to celebrate my fourth anniversary with my fella. The wallpaper, wood flooring/molding, and light fixtures were beautifully restored and made this economical hotel seem very regal and full of charm. The location was excellent and only three...

This was my second stay at this pleasant independent hotel. The first stay was probably 12 years ago and while there has been some upgrades such as flat screen TV, microwave and refrigerators in the room and a new breakfast area, not much else has changed. Yes, the hotel is a bit dated but the rates are reasonable making this... More

I've stayed here in the past, but this last experience will be the end. It's not the facility, but the lack of courtesy of the staff -- and that is an understatement. I arrived around 9 pm for a one-night stay, only to be told that the system could not process my credit card because it was "busy". I was... More

We stayed at the hotel this past weekend for a family get-together, and I have to say the condition of the rooms and cleanliness of the overall property are much improved from our past stays there. We were told by the front desk staff that the property had a new owner and that was a reason for the improvements. In... More

I needed to run away from home for a night & ended up here. I'd been here before about ten years ago. It's tucked away off the main road & you'll miss the drive way if you're not careful. Jackie at the front desk was very sweet & helpful in finding a restaurant nearby. The room was very clean ,... More

A wonderful old property that has not been maintained. We had for rooms as part of a wedding party. One was unusable due to a smell like a dead animal. Two were very moldy but the hotel was full so we had to keep them. Bring, towels, bath amenities were poor tirp pitiful. Carpets were worn and dirty. The property... More
