If you've read other reviews, you have seen comments about the construction going on. I paid for the "Harbor View" despite some of the reviews (although, some said you could overlook the construction). I wish I hadn't. It's definitely over-priced at this point in time. Perhaps when the construction is complete, it may have more of a resort feel, but... More

My family and I just ate here for lunch the other day. We were very pleased by the food, service and view. My mom said the pasta she had ordered was one of the best she has ever had. We all would recommend!

The view is a bit odd, part yacht basin and part industrial aggregate quarry. Not sure what the story is with that. However, the hotel is modern, clean and well run. the restaurant has great food and a good wine selection as well. There are outdoor areas for drinks and dining on the water, a good gym and a neat...

We stayed here with family and our kids. We were rather impressed with how neat and clean the rooms were along with the pool areas. Always had towels for the pool. The housekeeping staff were amazing and extremely nice! The manager was also extremely hospitable. Don't get your hopes up about the spa. They aren't open often and at horrible... More

Thank you for your review! Our guestroom heating and cooling is too smart sometimes. It senses when you are in the room and then adjusts to your settings. When guests are out for any length of time, the system equalizes but fights to get back to your low setting when you return. This may have been the case in your... More

Here now. Sitting at the pool listening to a loud crane dredging the harbor. Had to walk up and ask for a menu, then go back and place my order. When drinks were ready they sat on the bar until I once again walked over to retrieve them. I am sure I will have to fetch our food as well.... More

Thank you for choosing to stay at The Inn at Harbor Shores. We do have one of the oldest working harbors in Michigan. We apologize if the crane disturbed your stay. It is mandated by the federal government, so it's out of our control when they arrive. It only happens about once every summer. We currently do not offer pool... More

The building is newer and decorated very nicely. We stayed on the 6th floor, our room was very clean. Both mornings we were woke up by the noise of doors closing up and down the hallway, I assume it was other guests. The walls could use some soundproofing. Overall we had a great stay here, we walked to the downtown... More

The hotel was very clean (new hotel). Glad we did not ask for golf course view as the view does not really exist (golf course appears to be across street). We had the marina view which was nice, but there appears to be development in the marina area which will last quite awhile. In a few years the view will... More

Thank you for your visit and review, Dena! We're glad you got to experience Rise & Vine, our coffee shop & wine bar in one. Open starting at 6am-11pm, we felt it was a nice way to provide what a vending machine normally would in an upscale environment. As with most hotels, the higher the floor, the better the view...

Our second stay to this hotel. We had 2 rooms and they never cleaned either room during our stay that's unacceptable at 300 per night each. Then we were approached by the bar manager Jasmine on our way to the pool with a plastic cup of beer and she stopped us and said we do not allow outside beverages at... More

Lovely. Beautiful lobby. Nice bar and patio/yard to enjoy drinks overlooking the river. The service was friendly. Love the location just across from the Harbor Shores Golf course. Even though I don'r golf, Enjoyed a beautiful walk through the surrounding neighborhood and down to the beach of lake Michigan.

We stayed at the hotel for my boyfriends birthday. I couldn't have asked for a more perfect experience. The room was clean and beautiful. I loved the books about st.
