This hotel definitely exceeded our expectations. We had a harbor view double on the lower level; we had an outdoor patio right by the lawn going down to the harbor. There were tall junipers on both sides, giving us privacy from other rooms. The room was impeccable, the beds comfortable, and the bedding and towels were luxurious. We enjoyed sitting in adirondack chairs near the water, getting coffee or tea round the clock and eating in the hotel restaurant. They serve 'breakfast in bed'. You select what you want a d when you want it the night before. Promptly at the appointed time, a friendly staff member Delia's a basket containing breakfast. It is enjoyable to eat in the room or on the patio.

The location is an easy walk to the beach, and right in the heart of downtown. It is also across from the Amtrak station in the event that is your chosen way to arrive. There are bicycles available free for guests. Each room has a DVD player and the hotel has free DVDs for checkout. The price is very fair for all that is provided.

We will be coming back!

My boyfriend and I spent two nights at the Harbor Grand and it exceeded our expectations. From check in to check out our stay was flawless. The staff, especially Terry was so pleasant and helpful. We had lots of questions about the area and they were more than happy to help us. We are already thinking about the next time we can visit. We stayed in a king room on the non-harbor side. I think it was one of the most comfortable beds I have ever slept in. At our request, they had a little fridge and microwave set up in the room prior to arrival. The hotel offers so many nice, complimentary touches - a breakfast basket delivered to your room, large selection of dvd's and bike rentals to name a few. We rented bikes twice and each time had a great ride through a lovely area of beautiful homes near the water. One of the days we visited the Round Barn Brewery and Lemon Creek Vineyard. We did not dine at the restaurant on site but did eat at Redamak's which was really yummy. After one of our bike rides we stopped at the sister property to check it out and it was really nice. We asked the front desk staff for a casual restaurant recommendation in the area and a super nice employee (Keenan?) suggested Rio's which did not disappoint. We will most definitely be back to the Harbor Grand.

My husband and I stayed one night at the Harbor Grand. I wish we could have stayed longer. Our second-floor king room was wonderful, with a great view of the harbor and even a peek of Lake Michigan in the distance. I really enjoyed the warm colors and decor of the room, and the huge bathroom with whirlpool and walk-in shower was amazing!
We had a lovely dinner downstairs at the Terrace Room restaurant. The service was perfect and the food was delicious. Receiving the basket full of breakfast items at the designated time we had chosen the night before was a treat. And, while there's not a balcony off of the room, you can open the doors and there is a gate to close off the opening. We enjoyed having the doors open to see the great view of the harbor while eating our breakfast at the little table in the room.
The location is also great -- the entire area along the harbor is very scenic, and we were able to walk from the hotel right down to the gorgeous beach.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and hope to return for another wonderful stay.

This place was amazing! I have stayed at many hotels, and this one ranks near the top! I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone!

This is a small hotel with approximately 55 rooms (3 floors). They do have a restaurant on the bottom level, but it is small. There were only 8 tables inside and I think a dozen or so out on the patio. So, if you would like to eat here you should make reservations.

We had a king room on the second floor that had a fireplace and jacuzzi tub. The room and bathroom were SPOTLESS! The room overlooked the harbor and had sliding glass door so you could open it up and get fresh air, don't worry there was a safety gate so you couldn't fall out.
The bed was very comfortable and we slept great both nights we were there. There was a mini fridge but no coffee pot or microwave. The TV was old and outdated, and didn't have Hi-def.

There was an indoor pool with an outdoor sun deck. The pool area was huge, and just like the room spotless! They said they had a small exercise room, but we never looked at it. They have 24 hour coffee and tea down in the lobby. One of the best things that differentiated this hotel from others was that they provide you with breakfast in bed. Each night you get a card and you pick the things you want and the time you want it delievered. The items included: muffins, bagels, hard boiled eggs, cereal, yogurt, fruit, juices, coffee, tea, and pop.

The customer service was outstanding! I mentioned when I reserved the room that we were visting for our anniversary and to my surprise there was a bottle of champagne waiting on us in the room with a cute little note congratulating us on our anniversary.

The staff was genuinely friendly and would go over the top to make sure you were satisfied with your stay.

The location of this hotel is perfect. They are in the middle of town and within walking distance or a bike ride (they have complimentary bikes) to town or the beach. There is also a shuttle to the casino.

Room Tip: If you want a partial view of lake Michigan get one on the 3rd floor on the west side of the hotel.

Just got back from our stay at The Harbor Grand. We tried to reserve a room at the Four Winds but they were sold out.....Thankfully we found this hotel! We had a late check in but everyone we encountered was fantastic! Such a cute little hotel that makes you feel right at home. The room we had was a king "village view" on the third floor. It was very nice and very clean. The windows opened up so we were able to get some fresh air throughout our room. The shower was great, there were two shower heads and it was huge.

The other couple we were with had a balcony "harbor view" and it too was very nice. It seemed that our room was much larger with the sitting area. Our friends room had a nice view but it was above the restaurant on the first floor and the fire pit below had a loud crowd...It only lasted until 11 when the restaurant closed though.

Cathy (the restaurant manager? Didn't catch her title) is fantastic! We chatted with her a while and she was very helpful with telling us about the hotels and what to do.

Complimentary Tea and Coffee in the lobby is very nice! The "breakfast in bed" is very nice too, you get to pick what you would like in the morning and the bring it to you when you request. We were able to enjoy our breakfast in our room in private!

If i had to "complain" about one thing it would have to be the bed. The bed was a bit hard for my taste and the pillows were also a bit stiff. Next time i'm just going to bring my own pillow...problem solved.

The location of the hotel is great....just over the bridge is the beach and right around the corner from the hotel is a strip of shops and cafes. We ate at Brewsters Italian Cafe and it was fantastic! We were told that in the summer you will have to pay for parking at the beach. Good thing the beach is within walking distance!

I would definitely stay here again. We can not wait to come back in the summer!

Room Tip: Bring your own pillow if you like softer pillows
