“Only stayed one night”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 6, 2012

Hotel is beautiful with awesome views of the water. Staff was great recommending 2nd floor since we have 2 small boys and there is nothing to keep them in the patio on 1st floor and water is just steps away. Pool was nice but we kept getting locked out because the room key would not work to get back in, which seemed to be a problem for several people because others tried to help us. Price was a little much for us but we were desperate at the time.

My wife and I spent one night at this resort because it was close to the booked up Four Winds Casino. I was nice. Modern, very clean, and the people were very service oriented. All of the rooms looked over the marina with only a few glimpses of Lake Michigan from the roof deck. One problem, this 3 story hotel only has two elevators that are very far apart. If you are on an upper floor you may be in for a very long walk. Do I think it was worth the pricey room rate? No!

Room Tip: Try to get a room on a lower floor unless you dont mind the walking

2nd visit to the Marina Grand. This time the amenities are a little better, and the Bentwood Tavern does not disappoint. The staff is very friendly and accomodating.

We have stayed in New Buffalo 4-5 over the past 3 years. We have always stayed at the Harbor Grand resort. When the reservations were made it was for the Marina Grand in error. Was I happy that we made the mistake! We arrived and were greeted by the most friendly young man, Jarvis. He was so helpful and check-in was a breeze. We were fortunate enough to be given an upgrade to a one bedroom suite. The room was gorgeous. One of the greatest things was that there was a 1/2 bath. This was fantastic!

The restaurant on site was delicious. We had dinner there on Thursday night and the place was full. We had brunch there on Saturday as well. Yum!

I still like the Harbor Grand, but I think I will choose the Marina Grand from now on.

My husband and I have stayed here several times. We always get the one bedroom suite, great because there is a 1/2 bath I can use while he is in the big bathroom. The balconies are perfect for morning coffee overlooking the marina.
The restaurant, The Bentwood Tavern is delish, love sitting outside. Also, they have a rooftop you can hang out at and have a cocktail before dinner.

We love this place, the location is great, they have bicycles too that are complimentary.

The only drawback to this resort is the outdoor pool. The pool is small and separated from the resort a little bit. Only gets sun on one side, and the people that have boats in the marina also have access to the pool. I know that this is really a beach town, but sometimes you don't want to make an "event" out of lying in the sun.

Overall, we love this place!

Room Tip: Stay close to the lobby on the 3rd floor
