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

The Harbor House Inn is quaint, relaxing and private. This was my second stay, the first time was about 5 years ago and I was happy to see things have remained the same. The Harbor House Inn seems more like a boutique or bed and breakfast rather than an Inn. The place is filled with nick knacks and charm. I... More

I had stayed at the Harbor House Inn a few weeks ago, and it was a great stay. The hotel itself is beautiful, clean, and just wonderful. The perks of the stay is the beautiful beach right across the Inn. The Harbor House Inn is the only hotel i will be staying at for future trips. Overall, Service is excellent,... More

We recently had a great stay at the Harbor House. We stayed in the front of the cottage and had a wonderful stay. Lots of privacy. There were three of us and we managed with the sofa bed and a queen. Great screened front porch in front and a yummy light breakfast every morning. Folks were so nice and accommodating.... More
