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...

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. Our room has a mini fridge and microwave. We have stayed in the kitchen rooms and those have everything you need....

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. The owners, Mike and Linda, and staff are terrific too so no reason for us to look anywhere else. Chelsea and Sophie helped us...

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.

This is the only hotel in Grand Haven that is right across from the water. The state beach is directly across the street. We had a beautiful view of the lake and the lighthouse from our room. The hotel has wrap around decks on the upper level with plenty of room for everyone to get outside and enjoy the sunset...

My cousins and I stay at the Blue Water Inn twice a year, off season. The service is friendly, the view tremendous, the atmosphere casual, and the experience always great. It feels like a home away from home. We love having a kitchen so we can relax "at home" when we don't feel like leaving the lake or getting out...

Bluewater was nice. Nothing sparkly and upscale about it but the affordable off season rates made staying right across from the State Park Beach a reality. Staff was friendly and helpful. We had the smallest room with the smallest bath and it was "cozy" but it worked for us. What should be a super view is intruded on by the...

If you want to pay a premium to stay in what feels like a college-age kid's first apartment then reserve a room at Bluewater's off-site property near downtown. First off, the apartments are sparsely appointed with second-hand hotel furniture so you don't want to spend time there. Secondly, the bathroom and kitchen are in desperate need of an update. The...

They charge alot for a few square feet -- but the location, friendliness and cute factor can't be beat! Once you have stayed here you are spoiled for anywhere else in Grand Haven. Each room is comfortable clean unique and well equipped for such a small space. Always a nice group of fellow guests in the shared space of picnic...

“Room 9B was the perfect location. It is the last room on in the front so it is more private. The deck is a shared space.”

“Second-floor south-side rooms have the best deck areas -- and likely the best views.”
