The stay at this hotel was excellent. The desk agent was especially helpful in obtaining a handicap room. Shelly Dutkiewicz was the agent and she was courteous and professional. She helped us locate our next days travel plans and recommended a very good restaurant for the night.

We stayed at this Holiday Inn Express with Priority Club points for 3 days. We were able to get the Presidential Suite, which was large and had plenty of room for a family. The staff were all friendly and helpful. The breakfast was complete and good, it varied each day. They offered hot beverages all day, and sometimes had fresh... More

Spent two nights here while visiting South Haven. Not much to add after having read the other reviews. The location was good, a hot breakfast was included, and everyone was very nice. The room was what I would expect for a Holiday Inn, not large but certainly adequate, and it was very clean. A small refrigerator and microwave were included.... More

We stayed on the third floor, to avoid having people above us. The room was nice and clean. There was good curtains that kept the room nice and dark. The front desk called shortly after checking in to make sure everything was good with the room. That was a nice touch. The pool was great. Perfect temp, but no hot... More

I'm usually a solo business traveler, but for this go round I was accompanied by the wife and two young kids (3 & 5), on a family vacation. We arrived on a very rainy Sunday night to an obviously packed hotel. The front desk staff was great - even gave me bottled water and my pick from a "goodie basket"... More

Great location, friendly staff, great breakfast offerings, not hot tub but the pool is awesome, staff always ready and able to answer questions. Town and beach only a short distance away. Room was spacious and very clean.

South Haven in the winter isn't the most pleasant of places as it is bitter cold, but we wound up there and this hotel was warm and inviting. The rooms were modern and clean and the front desk staff was pleasant. There was fruit in the lobby 24 hours a day and the warm complimentary breakfast was just what we... More
