We had a very good weekend stay at the Old Harbor Inn. First and foremost, the location of the hotel is fantastic. The hotel sits right on the harbor, is in the heart of downtown, and is a 10-15 minute walk from the beach. You really can't ask for more than that on location. We had a grand harbor view... More

We are here just before peak vacation season and it has been wonderful (and affordable)! The location is perfect, close to the downtown fun and just a walk down to the beach. Room is clean and spacious, along with a mini balcony that has been enjoyable. My favorite part is that there are windows on both sides of the room... More

Stayed the weekend at Old Harbor Inn. The room was definitely in need of updating. The balcony was barely large enough for two chairs. The part of the blinds to swivel to close was missing from two windows. The screen was ripped in the sliding door leading to the balcony. The internet connection was sporadic at best and as another... More

We stayed here during the Blueberry Festival, and I am so glad we did. It was such a blast! Not only is York's Landing in the hotel but The Idler river boat and a new dock type bar are right there in Old Harbor Village. There is a movie theater with in less than a block. Walking to either beach... More

We stopped into South Haven when visiting friends in a nearby town and booked a room for one night without a reservation. They were very accommodating, the price was reasonable (Thursday night in August), and it is quite convenient to local attractions. On Thursdays (maybe every Thursday in the summer?) there is a local venue/open music festival in the evening... More

My wife and I stayed during the Blueberry festival and had a great time. Room was clean and bed was comfortable. Late night noise not really a problem. Easy walking distance to everything. South Haven is such a nice little town, everyone is so friendly. We had a harbor landing room and loved the view.

Thanks! South Haven is a great beach town. We are a friendly bunch here, laid back and unpretentious, yet our compact downtown is packed full of great shops and restaurants. Our white sugar sand beaches are amazing. Our historic red light shines bright in all seasons. And everything is within walking distance of Old Harbor Inn. Great views and great... More

We stayed in room 6 with our two young children the weekend of the blueberry festival in August. My kids jumped up and down when they first entered the room. This room has high ceilings, a giant tub in front of a bay window, and giant windows on three sides. We have a stunning view of the harbor, the pirate... More

Leah S, Guest Relations Manager at Old Harbor Inn, responded to this review

Our fantastic location, downtown, on the water, means we are also in the heart of the nightlife. Most of our guests like it, and accept that there can be some music and crowd din on summer weekends. This was reserved online, so I personally emailed this guest: "Room 6 is a great room, but it may be noisy if the... More
