“Very nice and quiet place to stay!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

I would highly recommend the hotel for anyone! Very clean and well maintained! The owners Tim and Debbie are very nice and helpful! We stayed in one of there cabins that had one Queen size bed, small tv with Directv and all movie channels. Cabin was very clean. They also provide a nice picnic area with a grill and picnic table, but recommend bringing lawn chairs. We will defiantly be staying here again in the future.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

We stayed at this small motel for 5 nights during the 4th of July holiday. Several other family members joining us for a family reunion in Long Beach stayed here as well. We had one of the small motel rooms. Our room was well decorated including a small table, chairs, comfortable bed with clean colorful bedspread, clean carpets and fresh towels and linens. Again, the room was small but it did include a TV, frig and microwave oven as well.The bathroom was a bit of a squeeze due to its size and layout but it had a full sized tub with shower, plenty of hot water nice sink area and we made the best of it. The motel room windows face Hwy 12 and you will hear some traffic noise. I am pretty picky about noise at night, but honestly, I barely noticed it. Tim, the owner, was great. Stayed up for us when we arrived very late on the first night and was helpful with suggestions for restaurants and other attractions in the area. He had coffee available in the lobby each morning and was always ready for a friendly chat. This is not a luxury motel but more like a throwback to the old family run road motels of days gone by. So, if you are looking for a no frills value motel that is a clean and comfortable place to stay, you can't beat Tim & Debbie's little place.

Room Tip: Cabins are bigger and have larger bathrooms.

Our family was having a reunion in Long Beach, Indiana. My daughter discovered this secret GEM the previous month, so we booked 2 cabins and 1 motel room.
The place is immaculate and the owners, Tim and Debbie were more than accommodating. If your looking for a 5 star place, go ahead and spend the big bucks, but if you are looking for a just a really nice place to stay, book this place!

Room Tip: The cabins are really sweet.

We stayed two nights in one of the cabins as a surprise to my girlfriend, whom i proposed to on Washington park beach that night. what a perfect location between Michigan city IN. and New Buffalo Mi. many delicious places to eat and beaches in both towns. The cabins were wonderful and just what I was looking for. Comfy cabins that were very clean an well decorated. The owners Tim and Debbie were very inviting and made us feel very welcomed, you can tell they have put a lot of work and Heart into there inn. We will defiantly be coming back!

We stumbled upon the hidden inn motel about 9 months ago. They were closed . We really liked it and knew we would be back. We decided spur of the moment over Memorial Day weekend to give it a go and lucky for us they had one room left. What a great time, what nice people, very clean, very quaint. Tim and Debbie were excellent hosts. Highly recommend this affordable, low key high service stop along the way. Thanks - David and Michele.

Trying to squeak out a last weekend of summer, we found the Hidden Inn by accident on the internet. Tim and Deb were great on the phone and thoughout our stay. We loved our little cabin and the woodsy surroundings. Perfect for getting to the beach or New Buffalo and Michigan City. We WILL be coming back!

Room Tip: We had trouble with the water heater in our cabin. Tim not only temporarily fixed it (actually it w...

My mom and I stayed here for one night in late August this year. We arrived late and the owners were so helpful getting us settled. They also helped with directions to McDonald's and recommended a good breakfast place to go the next day; Memos. The room (our cabin) smelled great, it was clean, and very comfortable. Also, the inn is located right off the main road in a small wooded area with huge trees. It gives off that friendly summer camp vibe.
