“Perfect in every way”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2010

My husband and me drove up for a Memorial weekend getaway and had an unfortunate Friday trying to find a place to stay and ending up in an overpriced old resort. Woke up and arrived early not expecting to be given our room. We were greeted kindly, told we could store our bikes if needed and then we were told our room was actually ready. The service here is very good and for the price and location there is no better place to stay in this area.

.We stayed here for one night on a trip to the lake shore and really liked the hotel. It’s very clean, the rooms are a good size and the beds are comfortable. The property is very well kept up and nothing looks worn or faded. The pool and exercise area was very nice too. Hampton Inns are not luxury properties (breakfast is served on styrofoam plates with plastic cutlery), but when they are as well run and in good condition as this one they offer good value for money.

Stayed for a Fri and Sat night in Feb. Hotel was not busy. Check in and check out was uneventful. Booked a double room which were full-size beds. No complaints about cleanliness of room or bathroom. Everything was in working order. Beds were comfortable. Our room faced Wendys and it was quiet at night. Hotel is just off interstate. It is less than a 5 minute drive to downtown South Haven. Room was on 2nd floor. If you need to use a microwave, you have to go to the breakfast area and use the one there. There are no mini fridges in standard rooms only in the suites - if you need one in your room you need to ask at the front desk which they offer for free. They did have a coffee make in the room, however.

Breakfast was good. The hotel is remodeling their breakfast area for the busy summer season so not sure if offerings were less due to space - it didn't seem like it. Hot item changed daily - Sat morning offered real sausage patties and french-toast sticks and Sunday morning was a cheesy-scramble egg with chopped ham, if I remember correctly. Cut up fresh fruit bowl was my favorite. Typical continental items also offered.

Pool was awesome Fri and Sat. Hot tub was working well. We took advantage of it both days. However, Sunday morning maintenance man treated it and there was just too much chlorine. One father's toddler vomited in the hot-tub area - he told me there was a strong chlorine presence as he saw we were going for a Sunday morning swim before heading home. I had a cold so couldn't really smell it but just walking around on the deck was burning my eyes. Maintenance man opened one window for fresh air and we eventually left after 10-15mins swimming cause my 2 young kids and myself were relentlessy coughing. Maintenance man was trying to resolve the problem in the hot tub - not sure if that was the location of all the chlorine.

Likes: Everyone was friendly, HOT TUB in pool area, good break fast, close to downtown South Haven

Dislikes: No recirculating fan on in-room thermostat, no mini fridges and no microwave in standard room, ice-machine was broken on the 2nd floor, in-room movies run $15.

Went for an Anniversary get away. The Staff was GREAT. The hotel was as expected. The room was clean, comfortable and quite. Not much of a view, but the location was fantastic. The beach was just a minute away. I am sure we will go back the next time we go to South Haven.

Checked in at around 3pm and felt the floor in the room vibrating. We went out and came back a couple of hours later and it was still vibrating (a very odd feeling) however, when I asked the front desk to sort it out they immediately moved us to another room only a few doors down the corridor which was vibration free and we enjoyed the rest of our stay. I'm not sure what would have happened if they had been full though!
As this didn't make any difference to the stay I haven't marked it down as the problem was dealt with very quickly and satisfactorily.

We stayed here for a couple nights in July. This hotel is awesome. The location to the beaches is so easy that we were glad we hadn't spent the extra money to stay closer. The room was very clean and the staff was very helpful. The breakfast in the morning was one of the best that we've had and the hostess was very friendly. The location for getting to nearby towns was easy and convenient. If you stay here, visit the ice cream shop across the street! We would definitely stay here again and would definitely recommend it to anybody staying in this area.

A great choice for a quiet stay. It's only a 5 minute drive from downtown and the beaches. Staff are friendly and the rooms are comfortable. It's certainly nothing fancy, but is a solid place to stay without any real faults.
