I attempted to stay at this hotel. We tried to check in at 2:55 and they said they could not check us in until 3:00 or there would be a $15 charge....Really? Then we get to our first room #509 and it has MOLD, dirt, gnats and hair EVERYWHERE!! Plus the ppl next door (I think reside there permanently) were... More

When we pulled up, we thought it didn't look like this on the Internet. We walked in and it didn't get any better. The best thing about the hotel - the water pressure was good. It looked like the sink was going to come off the wall. Bedding was hard, it was like sleeping on a box spring. Carpet dirty.... More

Yes. It's old. But that is NO excuse for the bad customer service. Horrible customer service. Employees are less than helpful regarding basic customer service - like getting ice (from the machine in the office) or calling maintenance regarding a leaky drain in the room upstairs. I had low expectations and I was still disappointed.

I gave this hotel at 4 because I think for the $60 it's well worth the value. I had car trouble and have been stranded in Benton Harbor. Last night I stayed in the Baymont by Cracker Barrel and it was nice too. Smaller bars of soap but nice. My car was towed six miles to a fantastic auto repair... More

Ok I have seen nothing but bad reviews of how dirty, how old, blah blah blah. Is it a brand new hotel? No. Is it a $150 night hotel? No. This is an older hotel that is conveniently located right off I-94. The hotel lobby was very clean, the pool area was older yes but it also was clean. The... More

trust me....spend a few more dollars. go somewhere else. this property is a disaster. most of the amenities listed on the site are no longer offered (breakfast, restaurant, etc) or don't work well (wifi, everything else). It's an old hotel with some nice fresh paint on the outside. It's intriguing...you can tell that this place USED to be quite cool.... More

Only stayed because it was late and we were tired....clerk was not knowledgable about the area and said he couldn't match on line prices...the room and hallways had an odor and we parked under a lamp pole because the area was so dark and unlit and seemed unsafe....definitely in need of some upgrades..Never again!!!

I have stayed here a handful of times over the years with my wife and children. A couple stays have been good with great room, great bed, clean bathroom, etc. This year, the room was a bit dirty, especially the bathroom walks, grout and corners. Some cobwebs in the bedroom. The beds were D+ quality/comfortable this time around. Only two... More
