We stopped here on a roadtrip, it was probably the best price in the area, and I'd agree with everything every other review has said. It's an OK place to stay, it's got parking, it's a shame the pool is out of order and covered but that's not a deal breaker.
The place was a low price and was a basic level of accommodation with aircon that worked. The place was clean, rooms basic, free breakfast. It's close to lots of places to eat too. Don't expect the Hilton at this price!

We just stayed 2 days at the Econo Lodge in Saint Joseph, MI. Honestly I didn't want to stay in a motel originally but after seeing the prices of the other hotels in the area and reading these reviews we thought we'd take a shot at this place.
Yes easy to find, parking spaces, & close to town all true. You can tell they've attempted to update although still pretty rough and didn't feel super clean to me. It was average for a motel. The room was dark and I didn't feel super comfortable. Within the first 5 minutes in the room I did smell urine. I went to the front desk and a nice young man did come to room, admitted it smelled he thought it was musty. He sprayed some room scent spray at my request. But as you walk towards the bathroom the urine smell was super strong. I know I have a strong sniffer so taking this under consideration thought it could just be me. BUT I am staying here and paying for this too. After the first night not sleeping well I went and bought 2 room deoderizers, that seemed to help some. I just didn't want the fuss of dealing with moving to a new hotel so we stayed. But honestly I wouldn't stay again. Maybe the other rooms are better this one however just needs a deep cleaning.
The staff was nice and the breakfast decent with a waffle maker.
I did let the woman at the counter know of the problem and that was that. I will probably next time pay more money to stay at a different place.
Disclaimer I am not super snobby or a germ fobe and I have stayed at plenty of places I want to be fair.

Outside looks a little rough, but it is a motel afterall. Our room was very clean and the bed was very comfortable. Everything in the room worked. They provide a free breakfast which is always a nice perk. Pool was drained and covered, so not sure if they are doing maintenance or eliminating it, but beach is very close by. Staff was very friendly!! We would recommend this motel and we would stay here again.

We arrived ready to meet friends, have dinner and rest up after a long drive. After checking into our hotel, although the room and furnishings were very worn, I was pleased that it was very clean. This is my number 1 requirement before I stay. No bugs and a comfy bed awaited us.

The staff all were very friendly and accommodating, even in the small breakfast area. It was a good restful stay.

All that matters to me when picking a hotel is clean accommodations and this place certainly is clean. The staff are extremely friendly! Only about a 5 minute drive from the beach and cute downtown area.
