Great Lakes Inn & Suites
Ranked #10 of 11 Hotels in South Haven
Reviewed 22 August 2012

Very basic motel that is in need of updating. Curtains do not keep the light out (Car lot next door), shower drips, beds are old etc. Room does have a fridge and microwave. Brought my own pillow which is a must as the motel pillows ran out of life a few years ago. No breakfast available but room has a small coffee maker.

Room Tip: Do not stay on the side near the car lot. Room is so light you could almost read a book.

I stayed here for two days several years ago. Only rooms I could find during a visit for a class reunion. Outside doors did not fit (at least 1/2 opening at bottom of door — allowing bugs to enter. Bugs on walls, especially bathroom which was not clean. Did not notice poor door clearance until middle of night in rainstorm and was not able to locate help to change rooms at that hour. Tried to get refund but was not able to.

Room Tip: Stay away!

Horrible - that is the only word to describe it. Expedia should NOT have this available on their site. Bathroom horrible - rust on fixtures, part of wallpaper missing, floor filthy, no hair dryer, etc. etc. I have a bunch of pictures showing how bad this place is. We were afraid to leave because in July everything around there was booked up, and did not want to sleep in the car. The "breakfast" was pitiful, but if the room had been clean and decent, I could have dealt with that. DO NOT STAY AT GREAT LAKES INN AND SUITES.

They still advertise the Health club, but it is closed up tight and looks deserted. The pool looked "OK", and the laundry is a joke.

I cannot stress enough how bad this place is. Dirty, smelly, dark, and scary. Bathroom door does not open completely as it gets stuck on the floor. The door was covered in dirty hand prints. The smoke detector was removed from the room probably so people could smoke in a non-smoking room since it smells of second hand smoke. Wish i could give less than one star. Stay away!

If you want a smoking room you got it!!! All rooms in Michigan are non smoking now HA. At this motel you can smoke any time or any where. It looks like they are trying to fix it up but they have a long way to go. They could start by cleaning the floor entrence to pool. Pool was dirty and cold.

Room Tip: Don't stay here!!!

This is by far the worse hotel I have ever stayed at!! It was so dirty! There was food by the fridge that was covered in ants that were coming in from the big crack at the bottom of the door. There were 2 electrical sockets that weren't coverd completly open. There was black mold by the tub and sink in the bathroom. The air conditioner in the main room didn't work. The shower had no hot water. There was spots of stuff all over the room and in the bedroom on the back of the curtain there was stains that looked like blood. And the 1 fire alarm in the 2 bedroom "suite" didn't work. When I addressed these thing with the manager he wouldn't do Anything!! Said that was a nice room. Room 59. Than when we spoke with a sheriff at the parade he said that's the first place they go when they get a missing persons report. Enough said!! STAY AWAY!!!!
