I agree with everything in the review written on October 16, 2016. We were in the same unit they described. This place could perhaps serve a purpose -- as the previous reviewer suggested it might work for a family with small kids. The rooms were quite spacious (except the bathroom which was super tiny -- now that I think of... More

We chose this for location: closest to beach, and close to town and Lakeshore bike trail. From what I can gather, each room is unique, so I can only comment on ours: room 1 (first floor). little "patio" just outside door is adjacent to central entry walkway, so not very private, as well as room: large windows on 2 sides...

My friend and I stayed here last weekend in Apartment #3 a block away from the main hotel. It was my first time in an apartment vs a hotel room. I liked it. The cost was reasonable and all of the rooms were large. My friend slept on the new sofa bed and said it was comfortable (she didn't expect... More

Blue Water Inn & Suites caught our eye, simply because of its location right on the beach. After looking at two different "big box" hotels right on Rt 31 (heavy traffic) we decided the somewhat dated hotel on the beach was a better deal and thought it'd be nice to watch the sunset from our room AND hear the surf...

This Inn is very quaint and homey. The location can not be beat. It is right on the water, across from the state park. This is a great place for a family because you can stay in one little apartment and have a kitchen. It does need some updating. My biggest complaint was that there were not blankets on the... More

This is a fabulous, clean location for visitors wanting a beach front location on a budget. While nothing fancy, it is clean, smells good, and is cute in a cottagey way. Do not come looking for high end anything but for a beach location, this is a gem.

Just returned from beautiful Grand Haven, Michigan. Friday and Saturday night Aug.26 and 27. Six adults. 8k and 7k. This Inn is very charming directly across from Lake Michigan beach. Excellent Staff, great gathering decks and good parking. Location could not have been better. Certainly not luxurious but just perfect for us and our family time. Be back next summer... More

We have stayed here the past 4 years. As usual, the rooms are very clean. The owners and staff are very friendly and make you feel welcome. You have a view of the Lake right in front of you.

We love this place! This year we booked a longer stay during 4th of July week so we could see the awesome harbor front fireworks. We come here 2-3x per year because of location, location, location.

My husband and I stayed at the downtown location this weekend. Perfect location...could walk to downtown shopping and waterfront. Easy to reach bike trails. Short ride to State Park/beach. Nothing fancy but everything was clean and worked. Very roomy for just two of us and very friendly staff over phone.
