Silver Beach Hotel
Ranked #6 of 6 Hotels in Saint Joseph
Reviewed 19 March 2012

My friend & I took a spontaneous overnite trip to St. Joseph with the unseasonably beautiful weather in March. We didn't make any reservations ahead of time, and didn't arrive until late, around 11pm, We had no trouble getting a double queen room, and was very impressed with how comfortable the beds were, and our room even had a small fridge and microwave, which was also really nice! The room was clean and comfortable, and they even serve breakfast in the banquet room, which was also very good, considering it was complimentary. Staff was very friendly and hosptitable, and for the more than reasonable price for our stay, I felt we got more than our money's worth. I also love the fact that the hotel is in walking distance of shopping, and Silver Beach. I highly recommend this hotel, and will stay there again, next time I'm visiting St. Joseph.

This is not only a beautiful but very clean hotel. Although the outside looks shabby and outdated the inner decor was quite elegant. But we were really impressed with the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff. Here's just one example: We had to be on a fishing charter at 6:30 am. The clerk opened breakfast for us fifteen minutes early. The rates were very reasonable. The town and lakefront are lovely. We will definitely go back to this hotel!

My husband and I took my 86 year old father with us for an event in St Joe and so reserved a king suite at the hotel so he could swim and enjoy the hot tub. They told me the pool was accessable for handicapped elderly but it was not. There were verticle ladders into the pool and no other mode of entry. The door to the pool was too narrow for a wheelchair to fit through, and the hot tub was small and not easy to access either. It was a fiasco! On our arrival to the room we found that the toilet didn't flushand the heater in the living area was broken. We thought they had fixed the heater, but found out after we went to bed that it was not fixed.It was loud and cycled on and off all night and it was very cold in the room. The bed in the living area was so old ( I bet it was 15 years ol) and junky that I had to give my father pain medication to get through the night on it. He was up and down all night long and we got no sleep. In addition, there were trains going by and people yelling in the parking lot at night.
In the morning, we left my father in the room and went out the living room door of the suite only to find out that the key doesn't work in that door. Since the deadbolt was on the bedroom door we had no way back inot our room. My father was locked in the room and with his handicaps was not able to open the door The maintenence man had to awaken the people inthe next room and climb on their blacony and jump to ours to get us back in.
Every time we complained they made no comment. There were no apologies, no attempt for improvement for the future and no monetary adjustments to our bill. I do not recommend this hotel! It is in serious need of upgrades and not the palce for persons with disabilities..

Room Tip: Don't expect anyone to sleep on the bed in the living room no matter what the age.

We're so sorry if we gave the impression that our swimming pool was handicapped accessible. We're a 43 year old building and we're struggling to make our facility more handicapped friendly. We did apologize profusely, and we take great pride in our jobs, and in our hotel, and we look forward to being even more accessible than we are at the moment.

I have stayed at this hotel twice now. The rooms are large and super clean, updated beds although carpet and furniture can show wear. It is an old building but comfortable and inviting. The chirp of a caged bird announces your arrival. The entry foyer is modern and spacious. The pool is huge even though this hotel is close to the beach. There is a larger than usual workout room as well. Breakfast is adequate with hot offering of eggs and sausage and waffle maker along with the usual cold cereals. What stands out and puts this hotel a notch above in my estimation is the kindness, consideration, and friendliness of all staff. Tip: Hotel automatically charges a room safe fee. Ask to have it deducted from your bill on the way out if you didn't use it

We recently had the joy of having our wedding in St. Joseph and we could not be happier! With St. Joseph being centrally located between our families in MI and IL it provided a beautiful setting. We reserved our entire guest list at Silver Beach Hotel. The rooms were updated and very comfortable. They offered a wonderful atmosphere and it was perfectly located near our reception site – The Shadowland Ballroom. From our names in lights on the hotel sign out front, the bar inquiring drink preferences to be sure to have them in stock, to the staff going above and beyond our expectations. We even were able to book a Limo through Silver Beach Hotel last minute, which ended up being one of our favorite pictures. We would definitely recommend the Silver Beach Hotel for your stay in beautiful St. Joseph, MI.

Room Tip: You can't go wrong, balcony off each room. Lake view is nicer.
