It is an old, charming building with creaky floors and thin walls. It has a home-like feeling. It is definitely a B&B. Not a modern hotel. There is no spa. No phones in rooms. No fitness room, no business center, etc. Old tvs. It did have WiFi, though. There was only soap and shampoo. No hairdryers or tissues or lotion... More

This is a charming older property located in the heart of South Haven's quaint downtown. The harbor is across the street. The beach is several blocks away. We did not use our car at all once we checked in. There is no parking lot dedicated to the hotel and we luckily found a spot in the public parking lot behind... More

Stayed one night for my birthday. Location is the best. We parked the car and walked everywhere. First time in South Haven and really enjoyed the town. Hotel is nice and the fact that you can book one night instead of the other hotels in the area required two nights is a huge plus. The hotel is for sale, which... More

When reviewing this hotel, I have given a lot of consideration to the fact that it is a older property. First, the location: South Haven is an adorable little town, and Hotel Nichols is located right in the middle of it, so, for the most part, it's a plus; your room is within walking distance of just about everything the...

This place has so much history and is in a perfect location. We loved the area because everything is a short walk away. Shopping, entertainment, and restaurants. The owner was so kind and the young man at the front desk very helpful when she wasn't available. The rooms were spotless and we loved that they are all different. This is... More

No surprises here. The reviews gave us an accurate picture of what to expect. Good service, clean rooms and a great location. Rooms do vary so talk to Anna or Trent at the front desk and match your preferences to what is available. We chose the Riverfront Room (15) with a Queen and small bath. It worked great for us...

The hotel was such a nice surprise. It is like an old-fashioned Inn/B&B with lots of personal touches. Our room (The Blue Room - I highly recommend it!) was bright and cheery. Everything was very well maintained and the staff was awesome. It was our first trip to South Haven but will not be the last. And we will stay... More

The Hotel Nichols was a very happy surprise. First, the hotel couldn't be situated in a better location. We were always able to find parking spots fairly nearby even though its right downtown. Upon checking in, the wonderful front desk people informed us that the hotel is 140 years old & it had a lot of its original fixtures still... More

This is one of the few hotels right in town which we loved! It was clean and well maintained. The staff was friendly and helpful. It is a beautiful, historic hotel that is more like a bed and breakfast place. The breakfast was nothing special.....pastries, fruit, cereal. The wi-if never worked well for us. Our room had an old TV,... More

This antique hotel is a mix between a hotel and a B&B. It has a wonderful antique hotel feel. They add a few touches that you expect from a B&B like local books/information to leaving fruits, tea, and some sweats out for the guests. Though antique, the place is very clean. The rooms were on the larger side for what... More
