We stayed overnight while looking for property in South Haven. The Inn has a most amazing location such that you can park your car and walk everywhere. The hotel staff was wonderful - sharing information about the town and telling us about a great cafe for breakfast. It's basic - and completely suited our needs. An upgrade to bedding and... More

My wife and I and numerous members of her family recently spent the weekend at the Old Harbor Inn. I personally was shocked over the lack of effort put in to shoveling the walk(s) in front of and on the walkways between rooms. I don't understand why staff weren't tasked to even clear the sidewalks in front of the Inn?... More

Thank you for giving us 5 stars on value, location, sleep quality, rooms, cleanliness and service! This winter has been epic. With over 110 inches of snow and little thaw, we have been snow challenged a bit, it's true. We have been living life inside a giant snow globe here in South Haven! Occasionally it has been difficult for us... More

Upon finding a vacancy at the Old Harbor Inn I was excited immediately because of the preceeding reputation the Inn has. Lea was very informative when she contacted me about my weekend and offered suggestions that were absolutely 100% spot on. The room was clean, spacious and well appointed with Bath and Body Works products which instantly impressed my better... More

We chose this Inn for the location, and were NOT disappointed. We were up in Michigan to see the fall colors, and just happen to hit a rainy week. The Inn was our "home" for three nights, and we enjoyed our stay. This is the "off-season" for this area, so not a lot of activity during the week. I can... More

This is the 2nd annual girlfriend's trip to South Haven. We stayed at the Old Harbor Inn last year and wanted to return to the same charming hotel for this trip. We were so disappointed when we discovered there were no harbor view rooms left in the Inn. We were told we could stay in the Pomeroy, an off-property room.... More

Fall is a popular time in South Haven, and we do fill up. The Pomeroy does have a charm all its own, and as you discovered a great deck on the river, just down the street from Old Harbor Inn. We will make sure to replenish hangers and organize the utensils before we welcome you back! More

Last month 7 of my forever friends spent 2 days in South Haven at the Old Harbor Inn. What a great time! We got two suites so that we had plenty of sleeping areas. The rooms were wonderful, we stepped out of our rooms to a small deck area where we could sit and watch the boats come in. The... More

We stayed here for a weekend in June and were rather disappointed. The hotel location is excellent but that does not make up for the incredibly dated and worn out rooms. Our room had dirty carpets, scuffed up walls, and many other "blemishes" you would not expect in a hotel in this price range. To top it off the hotel... More
