Way over priced. Extremely out dated and not kept up. Room was dirty and service was sub-par at best.

Nicely situated, not well keptPosted Aug 21, 2014
I didn't do much research on the area before booking my hotel, but I should have. The silver beach hotel is located just blocks from the beach, one of the few with such close proximity. Which is what led me to making my reservation. However, compared to the other hotels in the vicinity, it is of the lowest quality. The price is obviously the lowest, and for good reason. The hotel is not terrible, but for the price I paid, I expected better service, a cleaner room and quite honestly, a better breakfast. If you want a hotel near the water, consider spending the extra dollar on one of the nicer lodgings nearby. Otherwise, it may be in your best interest to choose a hotel farther from the lake.

Very close to the beachPosted Aug 16, 2014
Old hotel,old rooms, so-so gym , nice staff! I would say that I actually liked my stay even though hotel feels like from the early 90s. If you want a fancy room go to the Boulevard Inn Saint Joseph, for 60$ more per night. However The Silver Beach Hotel is great for a weekend getaway on the beach

Not worth the moneyPosted Aug 11, 2014
I went there for the steelhead ironman event and paid about 339.00 for the night (369.00) with tax, the staff was not friendly at all and being a big event like this I would have expected some special race accommodations (for the price) but there was nothing. I had a two queen bed room with only 1 towel (had to go downstairs to get extra as the service was not prompt), and lastly the bar (which was located couple floors below our room) noise kept me up all night right before the race day! Not a good experience at all. In the future going to this event I will make other arrangements.

Nice hotel, close to the beach and downtownPosted Aug 5, 2014
Pros: It's location. It is extremely close to downtown St. Joseph and to Silver Beach! The lobby is beautiful, the pool is clean!
Location: You are in walking distance to the restaurants and shopping in downtown St. Joseph. It would be a 5-10 minute walk to Silver Beach
The staff was very welcoming! The hotel offers iced tea, lemon water, cucumber water (it was excellent!!), and lemonade to guests in the lobby. The pool and hot tub were clean. Our room was comfortable. It served its purpose. The rooms are slightly outdated, but we were able to look past it. Breakfast was delicious. The woman in charge of breakfast and the water/lemonade bar in the lobby has excellent customer service!! She always made sure we were taken care of. Two thumbs up!

Would never stay here again!Posted Jul 30, 2014
Room was dated, old carpet, banged up furniture. Bathroom missing parts of faucet, toilet seat was round for elongated toilet, shower was poor, very low height for shower head. Given note on 2nd day that water would be shut off @ 12:30 am hope to back on by 6, was not. Very difficult to get ready for work. Bed hard as a rock. The costly was ridiculous for the accommodations

Left when we saw the place.Posted Jul 29, 2014
We checked in and were shocked at how terrible the rooms were. We were paying $350 a night so I was expecting a nice place. I don't understand how this place can get away with charging $350 per night when the rooms were dirty and smelly. After getting to our room, we realized the water was shut off due to a "burst pipe in the basement". Between the lack of water, dirty rooms, dingy accomodations and no roll away bed available (which we paid for), we got a refund and left the place. This place would be acceptable if they were charging $79 a night. They deserve 1 star. I wouldn't even take my shoes off in this place.

Great location and view for an overly priced roomPosted Jul 20, 2014
The location was perfect, close to downtown and from the balcony you can see Lake Michigan. But the staff didn't seem to know what was going on or where to find things. The room was nothing like the pictures shown and they asked way to much for what you got.

Great location!Posted Jun 27, 2014
Nice place, a bit dated though. Room was clean and comfortable, great bed! Staff was all very nice, hotel was clean, pool and hot tub was nice as well. Not fancy by any means but perfect for what we were looking for. Only real down side was the breakfast, just tasted terrible. Best part is the location, walking distance to all shopping and 5 minutes at most driving to the beach. We stay here every time we come.

Fine place to stayPosted Jun 24, 2014
Pros: clean and comfortable - affordable
Cons: water pressure in shower was not the best
Location: Wonderful location - so close to so many things!
The hotel was more than sufficient - important to us was a clean, comfortable room. The amount of time spent there is minimal, to say the least, so we were not looking for any more than that. I cannot speak on the pool area as we did not have time to utilize it.
