I have been going to Harbor House for 12+ years....Love how beautiful the rooms are decorated as well as the other part of the establishment. Very comfortable. Staff is friendly and helpful. It is within walking distance of the shops and so many cute and good restaurants. It's located across the street from the dancing waters. Something everyone should see... More

My Fiance and I stayed at the Harbor House in November 2013. It was a weekend getaway for a late sweetes day celebration. The staff was very friendly and helpful. They showed us around the main floor pointing out differnt features. They also had a fire going in the main area. It was nice to warm up in front of... More

The Harbor House Inn was an unexpected gem in Grand Haven. The inn was beautiful inside and outside. My mother and I stayed in room 26 . The king bed was split into 2 twins which were very comfortable. The room also had 2 chairs for reading or relaxing. The inn was exceptionally clean and well cared for. Just fyi... More

I grew up in Grand Haven, and ever since I moved, I've wanted to stay at a hotel on the water or downtown so that I was within walking distance of almost everything. The Harbor House satisfies on both counts - the location was amazing: right downtown, the Grand River was across the street, and Lake Michigan was a short... More

We visited for a weekend getaway with friends over Labor Day. Easy walking distance to the beach, restaurants and shopping. Staff is friendly and helpful. The breakfast was the perfect start for lazy vacation days!

We spent two days here. Location is perfect for access to shopping, sailing, and walking the boardwalk. Right on the water so good views. Breakfast was very nice. Service excellent. Would definitely stay here again.

Just spent 2 nights at The Harbor House Inn and had a wonderful stay! Our room was generously sized and tastefully decorated. In fact, the carpet was such great quality I asked if it had been recently replaced. The bathroom could have used a bit more space for setting toiletries, and a wastebasket in the bedroom area would have been... More

Disappointed in HHI. We booked on Expedia for two nights. I called to confirm the booking and didn't get a call back by 24 hours later. Called again the next night and the front desk told me they were fully booked and couldn't give me a room. This despite my confirmation from Expedia that I was booked. My resolution: I... More

This was our first visit to Michigan & it didn't disappoint. We loved the Harbor House Inn and our room was great. The service was friendly and breakfast was good. The inn was quiet and perfect for a few days away from our kids. We would most definitely stay here again if we are ever in the area.

I have been staying at the Harbor House for years and have never been disappointed. I have stayed in all the various rooms and the adjacent cottage. My favorite room is #25. Beautiful views of the harbor from a huge wrap around balcony ( more like a deck ). Absolutely love the continental breakfast from the screened in, wrap around... More
