My wife and I stayed at this little gem of a hotel recently. It is truly excellent, and unexpectedly so given the price and the fact that it is in such a small town. Rooms - very large and nicely appointed, with terrific mattresses for the King bed and nice linens. Lobby - very clean and warm. The bottle of... More

Every year we have a family reunion in Newaygo. Our children stayed at the Harrington Inn. It is a wonderful place, very clean and cozy. Staff is very pleasant. Continental breakfast served. There also is a nice outdoor pool.

I stay here every year on a weekend trip with a friend. And I'm never disappointed. Always quiet and quiet. The cookies are always welcome, too! As someone who likes strong coffee, I can also recommend the quality of the coffee at breakfast. Cereal, yogurt, pastries, etc, too!

Thank you for choosing lodging at the Harrington Inn during your annual visits to the Fremont area and for posting your review. As one who also enjoys great coffee, it is always a plus to have confirmation from guests in this regard. The main reasons for the very quiet rooms is due to the sand-filled, block-wall construction and having no... More

My husband and I had a gift certificate for a jacuzzi room. I had looked at the rooms online and was excited for a pleasant relaxing stay. However when we got to our room the jacuzzi was tiny, outdated pink color, and the caulking around the tub was peeling off and you could see the grime imbedded in it. When... More

Kristin, we are very disappointed and apologize that you did not enjoy your stay in one of our "State Rooms" while using a local charity gift certificate. I agree that pink would not have been my choice in color for a Jacuzzi, had it not been that color when purchased four years ago. Since our purchase, Room 37, which has... More

After a 4 hour drive to Fremont where my children and I had never visited, the Harrington Inn was a nice surprise! It was in perfect proximity to our destinations for the evening, and the staff made us feel very welcome. This was our second stay, and the kids loved the heated pool and fresh baked cookies. There was also... More

The Harrington is a lovely, well-appointed Inn with warm reception, spacious accommodations, and pleasant staff. The rooms are very quiet and the beds very comfortable. We enjoyed our time there, as well as the delicious, hot-from-the-oven cookies!

Thank you for your review and giving special credit to my staff. It is always our intent to provide all guests with friendly service and a clean, comfortable room. The walls dividing our rooms are concrete block walls filled with sand and then covered with drywall which makes them especially quiet. We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay and... More

Having lived in Fremont for a few years 2 decades ago, I suspect Fremont is no one's idea of a tourist destination, though there are winter and summer sports options nearby. It may be a frequent business destination with Gerber Baby Food having a major corporate HQ and manufacturing plant just down the street. Whatever brings you to the Harrington,... More

Harrington Inn in Fremont is a small hotel, but very nice! Rooms are large, so are beds, and very confortable. Everything is very clean. The main difference with the regular hotels is the personnalized feeling you have by entering this place : you do not feel like 'a number', and that makes it very special.

You are correct, our guests are special to every person on our staff and, as such, there is no substitute for providing personalized service. Beyond this service, providing clean, comfortable and well-appointed rooms drive out activity today and the hotel plans for the future. We look forward to providing you with lodging in the future.
