The Inn at Harbor Shores opened in May 2014 and is Southwest Michigan's most exciting venue to stay, play, retreat, and eat. Situated on a harbor just 1/4 mile to Lake Michigan, The Inn at Harbor Shores features a marina, waterfront restaurant called Plank's Tavern, dockside bar, full service spa, Rise & Vine- a coffee shop & wine bar, area shuttle, meeting & special event space, a line up of entertainment and events, 12 miles of walking trails, water sports rentals with launch, bicycle rental, beaches and shops within a 5 minute drive, and championship Jack Nicklaus golf course (hosting The KitchenAid Sr PGA Championship on even years 2012 through 2024). All guestrooms at The Inn feature a sliding glass door leading to a private balcony, undercounter refrigerator, Keurig coffee maker, all Michigan art, and more. Complimentary wi-fi, fitness center, outdoor pool, indoor pool, indoor/outdoor whirlpool, complimentary (seasonal) s'mores and drip coffee for guests, and well-lit parking round out the guest's experience. The Inn emulates an over-scaled lakeside cottage influenced by the classic coastal architecture of late 19th and early 20th century Lake Michigan hotels yet features all the conveniences of modern day.

Hotel was clean, modern and in a very convenient location. So much to see and do in St Joseph as well as the surrounding areas. Room was very quiet. Harbor view was really nice. Breakfast at Planks was outstanding, both food and service. We travel to SW MI twice

This is not crooked, it is too small. Never knew there was such an issue.

Visit during the Ice Festival in downtown St Joseph! It's spectacular. This year it was in February and likely will be again. Visit St Joseph Today's website for all great area events. Wish I could send you a link but it's prohibited here.

"Harbor-view is very nice"
"Don't stay there for the view but a higher floor will allow you to see water."
"There is nothing else within walking distance of this hotel. The main part of St. Joe is across the river."
"We personally wanted a harbor-view room, and got it. Not sure how the other view is defined but there is a golf course there as well."
"Lake views available for a little extra"
