“Hospitality PLUS”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2014 via mobile

I arrived early, just ahead of a major snowstorm, and was given my room immediately. Someone walked me to my room and showed me how all the energy efficient features worked. Clean well appointed room. Due to weather my second day work schedule changed and they allowed me to check out at 1:00. Small town hospitality at it's finest!

Great staff, they take care of you. I have a strong dislike for noisy heating /cooling systems in hotel rooms, not a problem at this hotel. I would take this hotel over any regular chain anytime.
Traveling at this time of the year the fireplace in the lounge area was very welcome along with access to coffee, fruit and even home baked cookies, can it get any better?

Thank you for taking the time to write a wonderful review regarding your stay at the Harrington Inn. All guests desire a quiet and relaxing room. The quietest and most efficient heating and air conditioning have been installed in all rooms. All rooms are also separated by block walls filled with sand to prevent adjacent room sounds from entering. The staff is pleased that you enjoyed the Douwe Egbert coffee, tea, juice and fresh fruit that's available 24/7 in the lobby area, not to leave out the fresh-baked cookies every afternoon and popcorn in the evening. Should your travels bring you back to Fremont or the Newaygo County area, we welcome your return.

I do a lot of traveling and this has to be one of the top hotels i have stayed at. Even some higher end hotels were not as good as this hotel. Keep up the good work. Makes being on the road a lot better.

My Sister with her kids and their kids loved the Harrington. The staff and housekeepering staff were so kind and helpful. Kids were able to watch movies. My sister was pleased her rooms had refrigerators. They also mentioned the breakfast was so easy and loved not having to go out. Well Done Harrington Staff.

Spotless hotel, extremely friendly & accommodating staff, full-pressure showers....loved it! Had to stay because of a widespread power outage, and they made it worthwhile. Highly recommend to anyone, you won't be disappointed!

My husband and I stayed at the Harrington Inn around a week ago because my husband had a job interview. When we checked in my husband had told the lady in conversation that our anniversary was the next weekend and she gave us a free upgrade to a suite. The staff was very attentive and welcoming. I had the pleasure of meeting the owner and he made us feel like family. Everyone there was very personable. I would highly recommend staying at the Harrington!

We recently were coming to Fremont for the Tall Pine Quilters Quilt Show. After reading the reviews for the Harrington Inn, we knew we had to stay there. It lived up to all the reviews..great staff, great cookies, clean comfortable room..the only negative..didn't get to meet Lou! Staff said he was a little under the weather..maybe next time. We will be back!

Thank you for choosing to lodge at the Harrington Inn hotel and for your wonderful comments. We certainly are pleased that we met or exceeded your expectations. I, too, am sorry that I did not have a chance to meet you, but pleased that you asked. The staff was correct that I have had some issues lately for which I received some good news today. I should be back to work on a more regular basis soon. I am looking forward to meeting you in the future. We will have a warm cookie waiting.
