“Wouldn't come back”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2012

We had a block of rooms set aside for a family wedding. We arrived, expecting five rooms and only two were being held. It appeared that either the hotel booked 'over' three of us siblings with the same last name, or chose to sell our rooms to a much higher paying group as the Osh Kosh air show was also in town. Our reservation slip at check-in had my wife's name, my brother's address and my sister-in-laws phone number. All other hotel rooms in town were sold out. The front desk worker, who was very apologetic, shared that he only worked a day or two a week and didn't have any knowledge of the reservation issues. Upon checkout, the same front desk worker told us that he spoke with the manager and that she would not make any accommodation to our rate, to compensate for the disastrous outcome. I would try another hotel in the area before coming back to the Harbor Winds.

We were very pleased with the hotel. It is an older, smaller hotel but they more than made up for that with their excellent service. The staff was incredibly accommodating. The room was nice and the location was great. We will definitely stay there again!

Great value with beautiful view of river right outside of hotel. Schwartz fish market right across the street for easy access to some nice take out for Friday evening. Generous sized refrigerator in room. Only cons were it was hard to close drapes completely and I wish it would have had a little more of a blanket on the bed, but will definitely stay there again at the price I paid.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for you comments in regards to your recent stay with us. I assure you that I will be inspecting the drapes in all rooms to make sure that they are working properly. There is an extra blanket and pillow in the armoire in each room so I will make sure that my staff is making each guest aware of this fact. Thank you for bringing these issues to my attention and I apologize for any inconvenience you might have experienced. We look forward to your next visit.

My first time in Sheboygan. I stayed here a few weekends ago. The front desk clerk was very kind, patient and informative. Check-in was a breeze. Each time my travel party and I left and returned, we were politely greeted. The hotel is small and quiet. We found our room to be clean and beds adequately comfortable. There is a continental breakfast that was fine as far as continental breakfasts go. The hotel is right on the river with nice river views. Restaurants and bars are close by. Overall, it was a great place to stay at.

Its a great place to stay! The staff is super nice, and helpful in recommending what to see and where to dine. The location is excellent, close to everything. The boardwalk is right outside the door,literally, which has some very unique restaurants and shops. I would recommend the Harbor Winds to anyone and everyone!

Room Tip: River side rooms have 2 double beds, Parking lot side has king size beds.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2011

I can't imagine staying anywhere else in Sheboygan. I had a VERY CLEAN Hanicapped room with a river view for $71. a Night. Boaters can dock at a Pier right in front of the Hotel. VERY easy walking distance to Fishing Boar Charters. 3 Nice Restaurants, again wthin easy walking distance. SUPER Friendly staff. I noticed some ANCIENT Reviews that complained about the staff. Those reviews should probably be removed. Staff has certainly turned over in the last 6/8 years.
I only give it 4 stars, because the HW Hotel is not as good as it used to be. Buffet Breakfast no longer has those great Pastires. And Cable no longer has HBO. Hotel a short ride from the interesting Kohler Art Museum.

Room Tip: When you book use the comments slot. They DO Read them.

I am very glad that you enjoyed your stay with us. I apologize about the HBO, until I read your review I was not aware that it was not working properly. We did solve the issue and you will be able to enjoy that amenity on your next visit. The pastries for the breakfast will be returning as we go into our busier season. When you return, please ask to speak to me and I will make sure that all of your needs are being met. We hope to see you soon.
