Hotel was clean and fully adequate. As other reviews state, price might make one expect luxury accommodations. Rate is reflective of waterfront at Michigan beachtowns. The key to this hotel is the charm of the different rooms and the location. Walk to restaurants and bars. Parking can be tricky but rarely impossible. We loved sitting on our private balcony (plenty... More

We have stayed many times & seasons. Summer is peak but winter can be fun too. Rooms have jacuzzi tub, fireplaces and views of the river lot's of different choices. Indoor pool but we like the beach in summer, walking distance as with most everything you'll want to do here. Shops, restaurants, wine tasting, live music lighthouse all on the... More

Service at this hotel was excellent from reservation to check-out. We went with friends and shared a two room suite. We had plenty of room with a kitchen, living room and two bathrooms. It was nicely furnished. We had a great view of the harbor and really enjoyed sitting on the small deck watching the boats go by. I know... More

Like some other reviews here, you can't help but feel sorry for the staff who must get so many comments about the noise from the local bars and can do little about it. Yes, we were told in our on line booking about the proximity to the bars however in our case it was louder than expected - or maybe... More

We spent two days at this Inn. We chose it because of the location and this was a good decision. We could easily walk the area for shopping, food, the beach. Our room was fine, but seemed to need some attention....carpet was older and needed cleaning, jetted tub dripped all night, and a few holes in the wall. It appeared... More

A little gem we found with a great view of the river with privacy on the back deck. We are right in town next to the draw bridge with in walking distance to all the shops and restaurants. We will come back again!

Thank you for your review of the Pomeroy, a unit we manage along with the Caboose off site of Old Harbor Inn. The Pom, as we refer to it, is a little gem, as you described, and has many devotees that return over and over. The location is literally at the foot of our drawbridge, so guests are treated to...

The best thing about this hotel is its location. It is on the river and within a short walking distance from many of the attractions and restaurants that you could hope to visit in South Haven, and surrounded by numerous charming little stores. For the price the rooms are no better than decent between two adults and two children the... More

Location is the #1 reason to stay with us! Our views of the sparkling harbor and unbeatable walking distance location give our guests a great value, which is very competitive with the chains along the highway. Prime time summer rates are higher than the rest of the year, but our slice of heaven summers are not to miss! We have... More

Great view of harbor from my room. I checked into the hotel on May 19, 2015 and checked out on May 20, 2015. I was in room 43 downstairs. I was solo but it seems like a great place to spend a romantic weekend or holiday. Clean rooms, lots of kitchen furnishings supplied like silverware and glasses for wine. Had... More

I have stayed in 2 different rooms here. Both were very nice. The second time was to celebrate our anniversary and we stayed in a jacuzzi room on the lower level behind the pool. Early in the evening the voices from the pool carried into the room but it was quiet after the children hours ended. The room was very... More
