I spent a few nights here in June while visiting family and I was not particularly impressed with this property. The location is excellent for the beach, the waterfront, and the main drag of Grand Haven, but that's really the only standout element. What I was most disappointed with was the breakfast. If you're a bed and breakfast and advertise... More

Everything was A+. We've stayed here many times and the ambiance, quality, comfort & friendliness always please. Weather was so pleasant for May that we were able to enjoy the lovely screened porch and the river view. Home-made cookies treat and tasty breakfast items added to the stay.

I stayed here during a business trip, usually I stay at the Holiday Inn but decided to try here as it is close to the town centre. The room I had was a good size, with a large Jacuzzi and balcony with lake views. There is no hot food for breakfast only a continental choice. Overall I was satisfied with... More

Love this place, it was built with age built in. Although built in 1989 it has the look and feel of something much older. We had a premium room which included whirlpool bath and fireplace. It was very relaxing and surprisingly quiet. Had a nice little buffet breakfast in the morning.

Very relaxing weekend for my wife and I. The front desk at check in, and at breakfast, were a little off - not much interaction (if at all). Then again, I didn't go to bond with the staff :). Room is very nice, and breakfast is enough to get the day started. Lots to do around Grand Haven, and Spring... More

Well decorated with a homey feel. Everything is new, and clean. Breakfast consisted of brioche bread, and apple bread (we visited in the fall), several varieties of yogurt and the usual cream cheese and fruits. Coffee and tea. Nice property with the beach close by. Great for a romantic getaway. Maybe better to visit during the summer or when there... More

I absolutely loved my stay at the Harbor House Inn. It felt like home and the staff/ inn keepers could not have been sweeter. The location was fantastic as my boyfriend and I like to walk home from the bars. The breakfast in the morning was good, it wasn't your normal breakfast, it was sweeter which satisfied me. The suite... More

Location is perfect. Across the street from the harbor and the harbor walk. Continental breakfast was filling and included fresh baked items. Clean rooms in a Victorian look alike facility built in late 80s, I believe.

Harbor House Inn is located a few steps from Downtown Grand Haven. Easy access to shops and restaurants. As well as the Waterfront Trail which goes out to the Grand Haven Lighthouse pier.
