“A great place to stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

We have stayed at the Harbor Grand several times and have always enjoyed it. We like the rooms with the marina view and the fireplace. It is close to many restaurants in New Buffalo. The breakfast that is delivered to your room is good. The price is high, but we enjoy the convenient location.

We stayed at Harbor Grand for 2 nights after the town's busy week end Fall Festival. We were loved the hospitality and our comfortable fireplace room overlooking the harbor. We enjoyed the in-room breakfast, pool and dinner at The Terrace. The massage room (extra charge) was a special treat for both of us to enjoy together. Living north of Chicago, we look forward to returning.

Room Tip: 3rd floor facing overlooking both the harbor and the restaurant fire pit for outdoor dining.

This is an old hotel, but updated and well maintained--very clean. The shower has 2 shower heads and is spectacular! Very nice continental breakfast delivered to the room. You can walk a block to a public beach on Lake Michigan. New Buffalo is a very cute town with nice restaurants and shops.

We stayed at The Harbor Grand for one night before the busy Labor Day weekend (we were told by many that New Buffalo gets very busy over the holidays). The hotel is at a great location in New Buffalo. We ate dinner at The Terrace Room for dinner and sat outside. It is right on the harbor, so views of boats, but nice location. Food and service were good, maybe a little pricey. The room had a nice view of the harbor and Lake Michigan in the distance. Room was a nice size, updated bathroom and very clean. It had a tv, dvd player, mini refrigerator, fireplace, spa tub but no balcony. The hotel is within walking distance of bars, restaurants, the beach, etc. We did a couples massage at this hotel. It was set up in what used to be a bedroom. So not very fancy but it was a nice massage and I would do it again. I was very pleased with the service and our overall hotel stay. We plan on staying her again next year.

I visit New Buffalo at least once every summer, but usually rent a house. This time my boyfriend and I stayed at the Harbor Grand. We arrived early and did get early check in which was great. Although, we opened up our door to find an old small outdated room. We stayed in the king harbor view on the 2nd floor. There are NO balconies which was so disappointing only a sliding door. The view was very poor a huge tree took up most of the harbor view. The tv was old and you could tell the room and hotel need updating. For almost $400/night I expect more.

The only positive was the location- walking distance to the lake and downtown area. The staff was also very courteous.

Room Tip: Rooms on the 3rd floor harbor may have a better view but still no balcony.

We stayed for a couple of days to celebrate the return of our kids to college--and peace!. The rooms are well appointed and the staff is very friendly and helpful. The location is excellent---you can walk to fun shops and bars and restaurants. The hotel restaurant is excellent, with both inside and outside seating. They have adirondack chairs on the lawn looking over the harbor--great place for a martini! Breakfast is delivered in a picnic basket---a fun change! Not inexpensive, but worth it. We will be back.
