This is a great place to stay in South Haven.....its a short trip to the beach. The room I stayed in was very clean and updated. The owner was very informative and served an excellent breakfast every day of the stay. The Sunset Inn is a close walk to downtown and it will definitely be the place I stay when... More

Wonderful room, huge bathroom, great location. It's not directly on the lake, but that's ok. A quick walk across the street. South Haven is a walking town, so no matter where you stay, you'll park the car and walk. Be sure to check out Tello Italian Bistro for a delicious Meal. We'll be back for sure!

We stayed at the Sunset Inn- Harbor lights cottage for the weekend. Great location! We almost didn't stay here because of some of the reviews-so glad we decided to go. The cottage is much bigger than it appears on the pictures. We had 8 adults-(one person slept on a air mattress) It has a nice wrap round deck over looking... More

It is clean! Water pressure was great and not once did we blow a fuse-even using my 1875 watt hair dryer! Charlie takes pride in running a laid-back atmosphere Inn. Not to say he is not paying attention to details, he is there to help you enjoy your stay, not orchestrate it. He was more then willing to help us... More

Anyone looking at reviews on tripadvisor, yelp, or google can see that this is a very polarizing property. Seems it's kind of a love-it or hate-it place for most people. I'll try to provide a balanced and candid review, although my own travelling strengths and hang-ups will obviously color my review. On one hand, I'm low maintenance; I don't feel... More

Trust the bad reviews listed before mine....sadly only room in town during our last minute weekend. Definitely not the place to be without reservations. We paid sadly for this mistake. Worst place we ever stayed...filthy carpet, 1970 decor...garage sale at best bedding, super small room and bathroom.... Oh, and the breakfast...literally, ding dongs, twinkies, hostess cupcakes displayed in front of... More

We stayed at the harbor lights cottage and it was wonderful. The views from the deck are amazing. The beach is a 2 minute walk across the street and very close walk to down town shops and restraunts. Charlie is great too. He will make sure your stay is everything you ever wanted it to be...

If you like ho-hos for breakfast, you'll love this place. Otherwise, there is not much for you here. Start to finish, it was an akward experience. It's worth staying at a surrounding town, if this was the last option in south haven. Promise I am not a negative person, even writing this review I'm uneasy. However, for your possible future...

Pulled into South Haven towards the end of a Lake Michigan Circle Tour. Saw the vacancy. Looked at the room. The price was right for a B & B. Charlie was a great host. Anything you needed, Charle would get. Great source of information. Great talker. Room and bathroom was comfortable and up to date. Place had a nice charm... More

It was a busy weekend in South Haven, the visitors bureau said there were only 3 rooms left, and this was the largest to accommodate 2 couples, it was last minute so I took it. I paid $450 for the 2 br suite that was hideous. The ancient carpet was muddy and ruined, the decor was made up of random... More
