“Perfect stay!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

We were driving home from Mackinac Island and looking for a good place to spend the night when we drove into South Haven. The Hampton was pricey, but there was a huge festival going on so it made sense. Hotel is beautiful, clean, quiet, comfortable and provides a large breakfast menu. Staff is very friendly and helpful. We were given suggestions for dinner and chose a new restaurant, "Taste", which was excellent.

Our stay was really nice beginning with the friendly staff. We had ridden the Kal Haven bike trail from Kalamazoo so we asked where we could put our bikes, and she wasn't at all put out and instructed us to take them through the lobby out onto the fenced patio where they would be safe. The room was very nice, clean, large and comfortable. The cookies in the evening were a nice perk and the breakfast was great. We walked into town and there were nice sidewalks the entire way. If I had to pick something that wasn't excellent, it would be that it was a bit noisy from the outside traffic and the elevator, however, we were there on a week night, the hotel wasn't full and by bedtime both the traffic and elevator noise had stopped. We would definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: Choose one away from both the elevator and the road

Check your confirmation since they will make your reservation for the wrong days. If you say checking in this Sunday and checking out Saturday, even if it's Thursday the day you make it, make sure you check the dates and give them the actual days. If not, when you show up, they'll let you know it's your fault the reservation is wrong and if they are full, well, unless the 3rd shift guy Terence is there, you're out of luck.

We were welcomed by a very friendly lady at the reception. Rooms are spacious and clean. Breakfast buffet with sausage and potatoes, bagels, toast, muffins, fresh fruit, waffles, ...
Coffee and tea all day long at reception.
A baby crib is available + chair at breakfast.

Despite positive reviews on tripadvisor, I was disappointed in my recent stay at the Hampton Inn South Haven.


The bathroom was dirty, including grimy grout and finish peeling from the bottom of the door. So much so that my husband and I did not use the bath! Additionally, the dirty carpeting contained pieces of unpopped popcorn.


Outdoor and pool spaces included dusty fake plants and unattractive, deadreal plants for a very poor aesthetic.


The breakfast area was much too small to accommodate all the guests, as was the pool area. Overcrowded to the point of total annoynace. Further, the pool was cold and the "hot tub" could not even be described as lukewarm. As a longtime HHonors member, have higher expectations of Hampton and the Hilton family.

The hotel is clean, a good value and in a great location. We were able to walk from the hotel into the downtown area for shopping and dining, which was a big plus to not have to drive around looking for parking spots. I'm glad we chose The Hampton Inn instead of another hotel.

The hotel is clean and the staff is extremely helpful. Although the hotel is smoke free, we did have a problem with our first room smelling like cigarettes. The woman at the front desk immediately moved us to another room and handled the situation in a professional manner.
