The room and bathroom was very clean, and we had fresh towels every day. Very well kept pool. It's minutes from the beach, Lighthouse Place and not far from New Buffalo, MI either. You can catch the South Shore right there at Beverly Shores and spend the day in Chicago. We stayed 3 nights and had a great time.

The room's were surprisingly clean and spacious. The bathroom was very clean as well. The room got a little hot at times, and the fan that was in the room was pretty loud, but other than that the motel was a perfect place to stay for 2 nights. It is very close to the beach and a nice strip of... More

The service is okay, it's hard to reach a live person, ended up leaving many messages and no one return the call, I ended up calling them back to reserve a room. I had to settle for two rooms instead of three and ended up with less than average service. Let this be a last minute resort, if you can... More

As we have mention before we are family owned and operated so when it comes to choice of answering a phone or calm down our child we have to choose what is right by us. However we do call back, everybody that does leave a message. Our office is open from 9;00am until 11;00 pm. Often we have to close... More

I called to make a reservation for 1 night at the beginning of June for the return portion of our road trip and was immediately told 'i no take reservation for 1 night!' Must be nice to be doing that well that you can turn down reservations. I guess I'll spend my money elsewhere... :( It's too bad because the... More

I'd stay here again. My wife and I broke away from our kids for a motorcycle ride along US12 and overnight rendezvous. We had dinner at Bartlett's down the road and an evening swim here (well maintained pool). It's just the basics, but the bed and pillows were comfortable and the service was friendly.

Recently my wife and took a mini vacation to the Indiana Dunes National Forest. We stayed at a mom and pop motel built in the 60's. Or room was very clean equipped with a mini fridge and coffee pop. Central air as well. The owners were very accommodating and friendly. While it was a little outdated and electrical outlets at... More

Had fridge/freezer and coffee maker to boot. Outside was well manicured & had nice BBQ area with 3 Weber Kettles, horseshoe pits, picnic tables... More

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights and absolutely LOVE it! I'm a bit of a weirdo when it comes to cleanliness and this place not only smelled clean and fresh, it was! Loved this retro motel! We also took another reviewers tip and drove down to Beverly Shores, hopped on the train into Chicago for the day!... More

Our stay there was very pleasant. Our room was very clean and smelled good. Nice sized room and bath with shower. Very comfortable bed! Our room had a flatscreen TV , and a fridge. I would recommend it to anyone who don't want to spend a fortune on a fancy hotel. I love a good, clean Mom & Pop motel!!

From time to time I stay in vintage motels from the 1940s. They’re usually shabby but cheap, and provide basic amenities. When I reserved a room at Al and Sally’s Motel on Dunes Highway in Michigan City, Indiana and learned the rate was $45 per night, I hoped it was clean and safe. Anything beyond that would be a bonus.... More
