Not too shabby

As the title says-not TOO shabby, but a little. Pool and hot tub were good, room was clean, bed comfy. Is like the other reviewers said in that it needs a bit of a make over but not awful. 1/2 to 1/4 the price of other hotels in the area. Awsome balcony if you're inclined to smoke. Staff was undertrained but nice and helped us when asked. We liked it~quiet!

Nah

You can spend $20 more to get a good and clean hotel. This hotel is very old. Not recommended.

Needs to be updated. It was pretty decent. The pool and hot tub was great. Hotel was empty so we took full advantage of the pool. My kids loved it

America's Best Value Inn / Benton Harbor

This was really not good. We left a day early and will be requesting a refund. In short, this place is a "dump". I wouldn't recommend it to my ex-wife.... that's how bad it is. Not only are the rooms dingy and thread-bare, but it's located on a busy freeway w semis rolling by all night long. Again, bad experience. Depressing place.

Stuck in the 80s

This hotel was very dated and tired looking. Solidly built - did not hear any noise from other rooms or areas but needed a facelift. The TV in our room was going bad - and the shower was terrible - tub did not drain properly and when water switched from faucet to the shower the temperature changed dramatically. It was cold!

Amenities not as stated

We reserved a room at this hotel for my husbands business trip because it stated there was an onsite restuarant open from 7am - 10pm. It is no longer open. This needs to be removed from the hotel description. The room was average and old.

Over night family getaway

Staff was very friendly at this motel. Great location for exploring St. Joe and Benton Harbor. Motel itself is badly in need of some updates. Décor reeks of the 1980s and so some wear with age. Pool is warm and good sized. Would recommend seeking our La Perla Mexican market for killer dining at an awesome price.

La Perla on Pipestone doesn't look like much from the outside but the market has authentic Mexican food. Also, try the baked conchas in the bakery case.

Not what we expected

We picked this hotel because it had a 3 star rating, however we were worried when we pulled into the lot and viewed the exterior. It looked shabby and in need of work. The interior was not as bad, however it had also seen better days.

The hotel restaurant was "open" however no one came to seat us and no other patrons were sighted. We did enjoy a nice dinner at Henry's Burgers down the road.

Good business trip value

The hotel was a little hard to find; it is located back away from the main road and has a small sign. This was a great hotel in it's day but is now a little shopworn. Best feature: large heated pool and whirlpool spa. The staff was very friendly and helpful in locating restaurants. The room and bathroom were clean and appropriately supplied with towels, soap, ice bucket, etc. Once the Ritz, but now a good value.

La Perla is a very basic Mexican restaurant located in a Mexican grocery store. No glamor but really great authentic and inexpensive food. Very popular with the locals.
