“Worst hotel ever”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

I recently visited this hotel with my family they claim to be family-friendly close to downtown and clean. While it may be close to downtown it definitely is not family-friendly or clean. This is the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. I will never visit this place again. It's very dirty it had bugs and the room smelled of mold. Dear continental breakfast consists of cold cereal and coffee. Upon entry into my bathroom I saw four little cockroaches run across the floor I took my family and left immediately. I went to the front desk and they would not give me a refund. What ever you do, do not stay at this hotel you would be better off sleeping in your car

Save yourself the embarrassment. Don't be seen here. Dirty overall and employees live on site and hang on the balconies. Broken towel bars, mildew & mold in bathroom, phones have limited service, the breakfast area is dirty and the garbage can in this area hasn't been cleaned since it was purchased.

Room Tip: Find a better hotel than this one. I can't believe that they are allowed to continue operation...

Hey, if crazy staff, beer cap littered sidewalks and half way house type guests are your thing this place is PERFECT for you! Not only are there NO locks on the doors you"ll be sure to leave with a communicable disease from the floors,bedding,toilets. And all you low self esteemers are gonna feel great about yourself after being sexually harassed by the "guests" hanging from the balconies. And just for added fun bring your kids! they're sure to be safe. I know i felt great about staying there with my 13 yr old daughter! Seriously the only thing I felt great about was pulling out of the drive!! This place is SCARY AS HELL! Don't walk, RUN!!!!!

Room Tip: sleep in your car. Its safer.

We stayed at this property one night only because the town had no other nights available. It was dirty, noisy, smelly. Their all sorts of undesirables hanging over railings and shouting out to one another, Try to contact this property or the parent company Choice HOtels proved fruitless. DO NOT STAY HERE.

We choose this hotel because it was one of the cheaper places to stay in Holland that allowed dogs. The woman who checked us in seemed a little disheveled and appeared to be living there with a child and dog. I was a little surprised when they charged us at checked in (no pet deposit or anything) and not after we checked out the next day. Our room had two double beds and other than a dirty towel left on the bathroom door it seemed to be clean. However the room did smell like cigarette smoke. The location of the hotel is convenient to Holland and Saugatuck attractions. The restaurant in the attached parking lot, The Wooden Shoe, has great breakfast. At first, I was a little concerned about our staying there, but no one bothered us and for an overnight stay it was not too bad. However if I was staying more than a few days I would probably want to stay somewhere a little more nice and welcoming.
