My wife and I stayed at The Sand Castle Inn for a weekend. it was our first Bed & Breakfast experience. Overall, we were extremely satisfied. From the moment we walked in, we felt very at home, and it was easy to relax and enjoy ourselves. You could stay in your room if you wanted privacy or hit the town (only a couple block walk from downtown and 1 block from the beach) if you wanted dinner or entertainment.

The breakfast was good, however, it wasn't exactly what I expected. My idea of a great breakfast is eggs, bacon, sausages, etc. and none of that was provided. It was more along the lines of fruit, breakfast casseroles and sweets. The breakfast was not bad, just not what I expected. We would definitely stay at The Sand Castle Inn again.

This was our first visit to the Sand Castle Inn, staying in the Tower Room. The room was very nice, clean, and spacious. The location was excellent: only a block from the beach and a few blocks from downtown. We stayed two nights. One breakfast was adequate (more akin to a continental breakfast at a hotel) and the other was excellent. The decor lacked the Victorian charm that would make the interior stand out. Snacks were always available, and fresh cookies were baked at 7:30pm. Although the building has central air, the room also had a window air conditioner, which was nice. We've stayed at B&Bs before where we were at the mercy of the building temperature. We didn't get a chance to swim in the pool, but it looked nice.

This was our first time staying at The Sand Castle Inn. We stayed int he Garden Room. The staff was very friendly and the room was comfortable and clean. We loved taking our breakfast out on the front porch in the morning. The Inn is in walking distance to downtown South Haven and to the beach which was wonderful. We will definitely stay here again.

My husband and I recently went for a quick getaway for one night at the Sand Castle. Our room had a king size bed, flat screen TV, electric fireplace and its own private deck on the first floor. It was very clean and the breakfast served the next morning was great. You can't beat the location. It was one block from the beach and within walking distance to downtown. I though it might be a bit noisy since we had a first floor room but it was nice and quiet. Brenda was very welcoming!

This was our fourth visit to the Sand Castle Inn in South Haven. We have stayed in the Garden Room and Coronet Room on the first floor, this visit we stayed in the Tapestry Room on the second floor. It is a quaint bed and breakfast, friendly owner and staff, wonderful breakfasts, appetizers and cookies in the evening are a nice touch. The rooms are lovely, the pool looked inviting and the accommodations always exceed our expectations. Great location to the beach, Captain Lou's for a drink, Clementines for dinner, cute shops and a nice walk to the lighthouse.
See you on our next visit.

We spent a lovely weekend here, celebrating a family member's birthday. We especially appreciated the convenience of a first floor room for our handicapped member. I agree with all the positive comments made by the other reviews. The only inconvenience we experienced is that there is not enough seating for breakfast. Tables filled rapidly and trying to balance a tray on your lap is awkward. Other than that, our time here was great.
