We stayed in a nice, updated room, though the bathroom could have been a bit cleaner. There is just no comparison to the view. Watching the newest naval ship, the US Detroit glide past on its way to be commissioned... priceless. It was 40 degrees at night, and my husband was on the balcony, taking videos. We'll be back.

This is our second stay here and will definitely not be our last. The rooms are huge and comfortable. The view is breathtaking and the staff are very helpful. It is close to shopping and restaurants and a great place to unwind.

The Blue Water Inn has been in St. Clair since I was just a little girl, but being from the area, I never had reason to stay there. Recently my husband and I took a nostalgic drive along the water, and we spent the night here. I have traveled all over the world, and stayed in all of the big...

My husband and I got to the room and opened the door and immediately noticed a musty smell. As always, I checked the bed and room for cleanliness. Well, this room was filthy. The table tops were covered in dust, as well as the window sills. The pillow shams on the bed were visibly stained as some pictures in other...

When we first arrived and we checked in to our room, not a king size bed or a queen, it was two full size. Not what we booked at all, the rooms have very noisy portable air conditioning units in them. There is only three floor all with outside doors, 24 rooms I think, the pool has a sign about...

Just stopped in for one night. Great view of the St. Clair River. Rooms are nicely updated and looked nice. Pool was refreshing. Bathroom could of used a little more cleaning (mirror and door were dirty, hair on shower wall) and the tray next to the wet sink had water damage and didn't look good.

Was rather surprised to see this comment by a traveler who had arrived early and had to wait for the room to be cleaned. There is an excellent restaurant (River Crab) *attached* to the motel property and just a hop and a skip away. Since the motel issues a complimentary $15 appetizer to be used in the restaurant, I am...

Love it here. Probably stayed in every single room including the business suite. Always feels like a mini vacation. Love the River Crab Restaurant. Food has not been the greatest lately. However, it tastes marvellous. Its the quality of the food that is questionable these days. However, we will continue to go here as we have more positive reasons for...

I stayed at this hotel for a week for work. The hotel was very accommodating as my flight got delayed and I didn't get to the hotel until around 1:30 am to check in. It looks as if the hotel was undergoing renovations while I was there but they never affected me as I was gone during the day. The...

Check in is at 3:00 and if you arrive early the is no public restroom in the lobby. The rooms are dirty. The bed sheet had a spot and the pillow case looked like someone had drooled on it. There was a cherry tomato on the floor when we checked in. We left it there to see if the housekeeper...
