I was terribly disappointed in my accommodations and I have to say I'm not someone looking for perfection or think I'm special and need to be pampered but I was really looking forward to my stay in what I thought was going to be the fabulous Blue Water Inn while my condo was being redone. A nice clean room would be all I need. I live on the river with a great view so it wasn't so much the view and the freighters for me (although I never get tired of it) but just looking forward to a relaxing week. It just looks to me like there's no real cleaning or maintenance being done. I know hotels are struggling and they were closed for a couple months but to me, this has nothing to do with Covid and everything to do with no one's keeping an eye on things. When I reported that my shower wasn't draining and I was showering in water up past my ankles it only got fixed when I saw the plumber in the parking lot myself and asked him if he was there to fix my shower. He said no, it wasn't on his list. And I can't help it - I just want to paint that dark brown wall white or light blue to put some light in the room and add some white sheers between the dark oppressive drapes so you can get some light in there. On the upside, my room was nice and quiet, everybody's friendly, the view is great and the restaurant is absolutely FABULOUS!! ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS!!

My hubby and I traveling during the time of Covid-19 and I will rate accordingly. Please note this hotel does not have an elevator. There are three floors and the steps are high and steep. The rooms are kitschy and retro. The rooms have been recently been remodeled. I noticed a musty smell as we entered. The room is large and well maintained. The rooms have a view of the St. Claire River; however, the windows are covered in a large thick curtain. Therefore; you either have them shut, missing the view or have them open and anyone walking by, can see you . I recommend room #301 as you are on the end and no one can walk by. You also have a set of chairs and table outside your window, if you want to sit outside. The seats are not comfortable and are arms length to the rooms next door front door. All in all, we were satisfied with the room, a little oddball but retro and fun. (The restaurant attached to the building is amazing and expensive. However, the food is fabulous and they have a great Happy Hour.)

Room Tip: Choose an end room like #301 so you can leave curtains open to see the view and not have people...

This wasn’t our first stay here and it won’t be our last. Had booked the room but got there quite early and was so pleased they could accommodate us within 1/2 hour. Rooms are spacious and well equipped. There is a beautiful view of the St. Clair River and a refreshing pool. Love this place.

As others have said the staff is very accommodating. The room was ok . Bed comfortable. Coffee maker leaked all over . I guess our biggest disappointment was the non working Wifi. And the pool was completely non useable . The view from our room was beautiful! The restaurant on the property the Blue Crab was amazing . I would give it *****.
