The Gordon Beach Inn is a nice little gem tucked away in the woods just a couple of blocks from the shore of Lake Michigan, where my girlfriend and I were fortunate to take in a gorgeous sunset. It's far from luxurious, and yet our room (3) had a jacuzzi & king size bed plus a small refrigerator and sink....

We stayed here for the first time for the Apple Cider biking weekend. It is a charming building and great location, but smells really musty and dank. Room was fine and pretty clean, but a good swipe with a vacum in the window wells would have gone a long way... Beds were comfortable; peeling wall paper and very dated bath...

My wife, two daughters, ages 10 and 13, and I stayed Friday and Saturday nights, August 19 and 20, 2011. The place seemed quaint at first but upon entering our room (#10) on the second floor it was down hill from there. The two queen beds were crammed in a small, narrow room. The only "closet" was half of an...

We stopped here as our original plans changed. Friend desk staff-Ellen and Devin were so helpful and accomodating. We were the only guests in the hotel-tourist season had not officially started. Had no idea why we had keys to front and side doors but realized later that we were actually the only people on the property overnight and actually were...

I realize the reviews of this place are startlingly varied, so here's my take on the Gordon Beach Inn. We stayed during a weekend in November for a weekend of wine tasting, so there were less tourists around and the place was quiet (although you'll read differently in other reviews and I could see how this old building with creaky...

Well, after reading all the awful reviews, I have to admit I was sceptical about staying at the Gordon Beach Inn. But the description of the historic Inn on the website, the great restaurant and the art gallery lured me in. We were so pleasantly surprised when we got there. The rooms were not fancy, but we didn't come to...

The room was so dated and smelled. Even my husband wanted out. We spent $135 for the night and there was nothing redeeming about the inn except its location. Mattress was V-shaped, the television didn't work, the staff was so NOT accommodating and for breakfast recommendations in this cute little community, they suggested the buffett at a casino! NEVER will...

This was the worst hotel stay I every had. Not at all what they said it was on the website, or the phone. Small, cramped room, no one at front desk if you need anything. Plumbing is as old as the building. In the middle of the shower the water suddenly changed to scalding hot water, and I burned my...

Just got back from a wonderful weekend trip to Union Pier/Gordman Inn. I disagree with the negative comments. The inn was built in the 1920's and has been maintained with that decor in mind. Plain and simple without all the pamperings of today's typical lodging. Refreshing! I found it very quaint and relaxing in this day of cell phones, laptops...

It all started with check in. The young woman behind the counter, obviously more interested in her computer screen than me, asked, without actually looking at me, "Checking in?" Not, "Welcome to the Gordon Beach Inn" or even "Hi, can I help you?" Just a somewhat dismissive question that sounded more like "What the hell do you want?" Meanwhile, an...
