So, I read the mixed reviews. The positives of this charming boutique hotel definetly outweigh any perceived negatives. First, the location is perfect for the things you will want to explore in new buffalo. There is A very short, scenic walk to the public beach and downtown. The hotel provides FREE beach equipment such as super comfortable and sturdy chairs,... More

We stayed at this hotel for one night. We had the village view suite and I must say, there is nothing GRAND about this hotel. The hotel is outdated beyond belief. Nasty wallpaper, nasty dirty couches. I just couldn't believe what my eyes were seeing. On top of it, the AC is really loud. For over $220 a night, the... More

We should qualify our assesment with the simple fact we would stay here again but the reasons you stay here have very little to do with the actual hotel. The Harbour Grand is about the only game in town so you have to just grin and bear it. Yes, it's simply overpriced in every way imaginable. The most annoying thing... More

Two days at the Harbor Grand, over the last weekend in September, cost about the same as a good hotel in downtown Chicago--but the value wasn't quite comparable. And considering this was New Buffalo, Michigan and not the Magnificent Mile, I guess I thought I would be getting "more." My first floor room overlooked the marina, and had a walk-in... More

The Harbor Grand is a great little hotel with a great setting along the marina with close restaurants and entertainment. The wine vineyards in the area are amazing and easy to get to. The rooms themselves are cozy and well kept.

We had yet another enjoyable stay at the Harbor Grand this August. The location is perfect and within walking distance to the marina, shops and restaurants, as well as the beach on Lake Michigan. While relatively expensive, the hotel is clean, the views are great, the staff is friendly and very helpful. It was most relaxing to sit by the... More

The Harbor Grand takes me back to economics 101 my freshman year of college...it's all about supply and demand. The location of the hotel is excellent if you're in New Buffalo to relax on the beach or go boating. You're a short walk to everything. So the demand is there and The Harbor Grand knows it. Honestly, I've never paid... More

We arrived to the hotel and we were graciously greeted by the hotel staff. Our room was not ready at the time, as we were several hours early, but the staff called us on our cell phone as soon as the room was ready. The room was spacious and elegantly appointed in neutral tones with a fireplace. We had a... More

A pleasant stay. After the summer rush. Staff were friendly and helpful. Room was quiet, bed was comfortable. Landscaping attractive. View from my room was Marina. Could hear sounds of train easily-I was in a room on opposite side of train station. Had an hour massage, which was ok. May find more experienced massage people in the local spa(s). Room... More

I thought this hotel was delightful in a lot of way - plus side is location!! Close to the main street with shops and restaurants nearby. The rooms are very nice and the pool area is lovely with the indoor pool and hottub that opens up to a lovely deck with lounge chairs and tables. The view of the marina... More
