Three nights, four days at a very reasonable price; indoor pool clean and well-maintained. The facilities are not fancy; this is a motel within a short drive of downtown South Haven (few can afford downtown South Haven without driving there, it's very expensive to hire a room there!). This is an unpretentious place run by what appears to be one...

The 1st room we walked into smelled nasty. Went & bought a candle. Did not help. The room felt dirty. Changed our room smell was better but taking a shower was a challenge. Water did not drain. Wiped floor (bathroom) white towel turned black. Walking around room bottom of feet turned black! Do NOT stay at this hotel!!!

We decided last minute to join family for the annual Blueberry Festival in South Haven, and of course there were no available rooms for miles around, except for this place. That should have been our first clue. Yes, we knew it was old, and our expectations were low, but old and dated is no excuse for filthy. The shower walls...

This is the only room we could get near Saugatuck over the 4th of July. The 25 minute drive back and forth to Saugatuck was a good deal, as the rooms in Saugatuck were 1) all booked up and 2) at least double the price. However the room was in poor shape and in need of repair with holes in...

Nice little motel without the huge price of South Haven . It is located just outside town and easy to find . They have a friendly and helpful staff as well . I didn't wake up early enough to get breakfast. Nice size rooms too .

My wife and I had a hard time finding a hotel to accommodate our black lab during our trip from The quad cities in Illinois to the Upper Peninsula. Great Lakes Inn had a very reasonable pet fee of $10. The room wasn't fancy, but it was clean! The bathroom was recently remodeled. We had a great nights sleep. Staff...

I gave an "Excellent" rating due to the value. It is not a 4-star hotel and very shouldn't be rated against such. It is an older, family run business. I have a feeling the negative reviews by others judged this hotel based on expectations of what you'd expect with more expensive chains. We paid UNDER $60. The mattresses were new...

I was pleasantly surprised with the hotel. It was clean, friendly staff and conveinently located. The free breakfast that was served was also good- way better than just cold cereal. Will stay there again

If this place is your only option find a box and stay on the beach, you will be much happier. Our room was dirty, the bed linen had hair on it, there was a funky odor throughout the building, our room had brackets screwed into the ceiling and wall for smoke detectors but the detectors were not there, there were...

We stayed for one night during the week. It was an ok place to stay for a night. It's an older motel so it won't look as clean as newer places but it was as clean as it could be. The shower worked, toilet flushed, tv worked, lights worked and doors locked. It was convenient to the downtown area and...
