“Great hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2012

Great place to stay for a family. Excellent service, good free continental breakfast. Free Internet was very fast. Would highly recommend if staying in the Fremont area. Room was very spacious with plenty of room for a pack n play. Small refrigerator and microwave in the room worked well. Room and bathroom very clean although tub was showing signs of aging. Very good experience overall and we would be happy to stay there again of visiting in the area.

We stay at the Harrington often when visiting Fremont. It is clean, quiet and comfortable. The staff are always courteous and helpful. They have recently remodeled with new carpet, mattresses and appliances. We have always enjoyed our stay. If you are looking for nice, no-frills accommodations, I would certainly recommend it.

Thank you for being a regular guest when in the area and for taking the time to write a review of your positive experiences at the Harrington Inn. Guest comfort and cleanliness are most important to our entire hotel staff. Thank you also for bringing a smile to our staff by mentioning their courteous and friendly attitude. The walls between the rooms are of sand-filled concrete block making sound transfer between rooms nearly impossible. We look forward to seeing you again.

Great place to stay!! Very clean and comfortable! The staff is friendly and extremely eager to meet all of your needs. The owner even went out to get me a beverage that I wanted that they didn't have at the Inn...amazing!!! I also facilitated a 3 day training program in their meeting room. It went so well, we cancelled the site for our next program to have it at the Inn. I look forward to going back.

Thank you Shelley for your comments. We certainly look forward to having you back at the Harrington Inn for your next training session. To exceed your expectations is just meeting our goal of treating every guest as someone special. If you had a guest in your home with certain preferences, you will try hard to provide them. This is you home when you stay with us and the rest is up to us. However, the staff always appreciates recognition for their efforts and it is my pleasure to share your wonderful comments.

I have stayed at the Harrington Inn several times over the last couple years while visiting my mother who was in a nursing home in Fremont. This hotel is a wonderful find in a small town atmosphere. They have taken a variety of things you like at the chain hotels and put them together. Very clean, great matresses with nice bedding, good continental breakfast, and a personal favorite....warm cookies at check-in!! The staff is welcoming and helpful. Over time the Harrington is being completely remodeled. Each visit I have found something new has been changed and updated. My mother passed away in September while I was staying at the Harrington. It is impossible to express adequately my appreciation for how kindly I was treated during that difficult time. I hope to be back again sometime. Definitely my first choice when in the area!

Thank you for your comments regarding the Harrington Inn. It has been our pleasure seeing you and in providing you with quality lodging over the past two years while you visited your mother. It is always a difficult time for guests when they gather during a time of the passing of a loved one. For our staff, it is very meaniful to see family and friends as they show mutual respect and sympathy to each other while honoring a life that has now ended. We are very pleased to provide special rates and other amenities for our guests during those times. As to your other wonderful comments, we trust they are part of the normal comfort standards given to every guest. We look forward to seeing you again when your travels bring you back to the Fremont area.

Inn is usually code for small, tacky, and outdated. This inn was none of those things. I was in Fremont on business in this rural county and had planned to stay a chain motel in a bigger city an hour away- -so glad I didn't. The king-bed jacuzzi suite was the size of a small NY apartment and featured a separate sitting room with french doors (large enough for a roll-away bed), a flat screen TV, jacuzzi tub, and electric fireplace. The room was super clean, especially the bathroom which had a deep, long tub and nice toiletry basket. An extra bonus was the wet bar with fridge and microwave. Large bedroom with flat screen, desk, and reading chair. Don't expect high-end furnishings or decor, just simple pine and upholstered furniture and a hodge podge of framed water color prints . Literally situated on Main Street, the hotel is in walking distance of drug stores, bank, and small shops. All of this was under $100 a night.

Thank you for decision to stay at the Harrington and for your comments. We are pleased that you found the inn to "super clean" and at a great rate. Since our recent purchase, we have invested a large sum for the comfort of our guests. All of our rooms have a refrigerator, microwave, 32" flat-screen tv, etc. Most of our 39 rooms already have very comfortable leather seating and new individually-selected art (some originals, some signed prints and other unique pieces). These renovations will continue. Should your future travels bring you to Fremont, we hope that you will again choose to stay at the Harrington and that the experience will be even more impressive.

Thank you for your review of the Harrington Inn. We are pleased that you chose to stay with us. As the Harrington Inn serves as your home during your stay, you deserve not only a clean room, but also one that is quiet with comfortable seating, great mattress quality and other "home" comforts. More guest improvements are planned. Hopefully, future travel (for more pleasant reasons) will bring you back to the Fremont area. We look forward to seeing you again.

Thank you for choosing lodging at the Harrington Inn for your Michigan Adventure excursion. Your kind and generous comments are shared with my staff and serve to reinforce our policy of viewing all aspects of the inn's operation through the eyes of our guests and being CLEAN tops our list. However, without a polite and friendly staff you would not know just how clean and comfortable the rooms would be. Your comments will bring a smile to my staff and brighten their day (mine, too). Thank you!!!!
