The Harrington Inn is a great place to stay if you are in the Fremont area. Very nice rooms and a friendly, helpful staff. I enjoyed my large room with its whirlpool tub and comfy bed and pillows. I appreciated the coffee in the lobby and the restaurant recommendations. The Moondance Cafe is a great place to eat along with the Koffee Kup downtown. So nice to promote locally grown businesses over chains! Keep up the good work.

Room Tip: Rooms with whirlpools are great after a long day of training!

My husband and I had our first visit in the Fremont area on business this week. After reading the reviews we decided to stay at The Harrington Inn. We had a warm welcome the minute we walked in the door. The girls at the desk offered excellent service and the Owner Lou was very informative and welcoming.
The cookies and coffee were good in the afternoon, popcorn in the evening and a nice little breakfast before we headed to work in the morning. Very clean and comfortable rooms. We will make this our first choice every time we travel to the area. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

Room Tip: All Rooms would be good at this location. Nice layout.

I have stayed here many times for work and highly recommend for the area. Service is excellent and allows a nice location so I do not have to commmute from Grand Rapids and avoid the traffic. The breakfast included is a quick on-the-go type breakfast. If you are looking for a bigger breakfast, I would recommend the Moondance Cafe down the street.

The facilities and staff at the Harrington made our stay a wonderful experience! The room we had was clean, quiet, and very comfortable. The bed was so comfortable that it was one of the few times I remember waking up and having to remind myself that I was in a hotel. Another feature that made a difference was the coffee and tea station stocked with quality products. Cookies at the reception desk were a great touch, too. It is a locally owned hotel with updated features. A thoroughly enjoyable weekend!

Room Tip: Rooms at the back are very quiet

Thank you Melody. The entire staff is pleased that you had a "clean, quiet, and very comfortable" room. That is exactly the experience we desire for every guest. Sleep quality was the most important criteria for the mattresses selected for the Harrington as in my own home. The same was true in selecting the lobby coffee. After sampling many coffee offerings, I discovered the Douwe Egberts' brand in a California hotel. The Harrington Inn hotel now has the reputation of having the best coffee in Fremont. Your clean room will be waiting for you when you visit the area in the future.

The most comfortable bed I've ever slept in at a hotel. The service was great throughout my stay and I will definitely be coming back whenever I'm an the area. VERY clean room and throughout the entire building. Worth every penny or more. I wish more Hotels were half as nice as this one.

Thank you for choosing to stay at the Harrington Inn hotel and for giving my dedicate staff credit for the detailed work that they perform in keeping the hotel clean and, at the same time, being friendly. As we purchased top of the line mattresses, we are pleased that you mentioned the comfort of our beds. Hotel guests should expect a clean, comfortable room and a staff who will try very hard to provide these conditions. These are our goals and we try very hard to "walk the talk." We welcome your return when you are in the West Michigan area.
