We sure enjoyed our stay at The Harrington Inn. From the moment we checked in we felt welcomed. Our room was perfect for a getaway for two. One of the owners came out to meet us and share some of his local favorites and even gave us a gift certificate to his favorite restaurant place, which was delicious! We will... More

This was an unexpected stay, not to mention, unusual circumstances (checking in just after FIVE A.M.). However, once again, the Harrington Inn did NOT disappoint! To say the front desk staff is 'friendly' would be a gross understatement; they have always been polite and extremely helpful. The bed (though a bit too firm for our preference ) was an OH-SO...

Thank you for informing others about never being disappointed with you stay at the Harrington Inn and for mentioning our wonderful staff. It is the goal of all to provide pleasant, clean and wonderful accommodations. However, arriving at 5AM did not leave you much "sleep time."

Our first trip to Michigan, unfortunately for a family member funeral. The staff at the Harrington Inn was friendly, accommodating, and very helpful. The Inn was immaculate, the complimentary cookies were delicious, and the gathering area off of the lobby was very inviting! I used to work for a large hotel chain and am seldom overly impressed by hotel accommodations,... More

This was my first stay at this hotel and I was very impressed. We stayed in suite 39. The room was very big and clean. Love the new accent wall color! Service was excellent. Breakfast was very good. We will stay again!

Thank you, Terri, for taking the time to tell others about the Harrington Inn hotel. Being an independent hotel, the best judges for our clean rooms, comfortable beds and other amenities are comments from our guests. Although you stayed in one of our "State Rooms" with approximately 550 square feet, our regular rooms have approximately 360 sq. ft. with the... More

I reviewed your hotel a little over 3 years ago and would like to do so again. We have been staying at The Harrington for many years as my Mom lives in Fremont. Since the new ownership in 2010, the hotel has vastly improved! If you are expecting The Ritz, search elsewhere, but for a small town, this place is... More

Thank you, Brenda, for again choosing to select the Harrington Inn for lodging in the Newaygo County area. Your observation regarding changes since 2010 are very correct. All 39 rooms have had every item replaced for both beauty and comfort. FYI, guests are frequently upgraded to one of the 6 large "State Rooms" when available at check-in or as a... More

Doing business in the area, there were not many places to stay other thank motels or b&b's Took a chance on a non-chain and was pleasantly surprised, continental breakfast was good. Was in a good area for restaurants, movies, bars, etc. If going back to that area for business, I would definitely stay there again.

As our family has grown over the years, our home (in Muskegon, MI) has become to small for our kids & grandkids to celebrate Christmas (the tree and gifts take up much needed space).

I was very welcomed to be staying there. At least I knew that it was in a safe area and the lights were not going to bother me because they would only turn on when they sensed motion. Thankfully that was very nice because I hate it when you have lights blaring into your room under your door.
