when one hears only bad things about a place, one really shouldn't be surprised to be disappointed. Good location - check. Good room - uh no Good service - uh no Cleanliness - uh no Unfortunate to have such a great location wasted by people who care so little about making your stay and experience pleasant. Obviously they're not too... More

LUCKILY I have not had the misfortune to stay at this place. With the total disregard for tact and diplomacy and utter rudeness that my son received of which I personally heard, I would never recommend this hotel to anyone. If they can behave so abominably to potential customers I can't imagine what they do face to face if you... More

One of the worst places I've stayed in, a family trip turned into a disaster as the room above us erupted with noise at 3 a.m. and the owners were able to do little to control it. We had asked to leave but were told a $50 deposit would be kept for just one night! Only consolation was one night... More

You wouldn't expect much of a place called Raccoon Inn, and you shouldn't because the rooms are dark, dated, musty smelling. Beds are super springy, carpet is super old and dirty. Typical small town motel. Right across from the beach, which is it's only redeeming quality.

Grotesque. Shame these lazy people bought up the best location on Lake Shore drive. The room smells like black mold and the staff is horrible. For $160 you should not have to worry about the air you breathe while you sleep. Honestly if u cant find another room in town just sleep in car... it will be a far better... More

We did not get the room I reserved ahead of time on the phone. We did get a kitchenette. In it none of the 4 glasses matched. I pulled back the covers to tuck in my 9 yr old daughter and saw a ribbed condom - luckily still in its wrapper!!! No plug for the bathtub. Overall revolting!!
