“Excellent Service”
Reviewed 7 October 2013

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.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review for the Harrington Inn hotel. We are pleased that you received "excellent service" and that you "highly recommend" our hotel. Thank you for being a regular guest. We look forward to serving you again in the future. Being a relatively small community, we have several nice nearby restaurants and agree with your comments regarding the Moon Dance restaurant.

Thank you for your nice review and comments about the Harrington Inn hotel. It is my pleasure to speak with many of our guests and I appreciated the credit that you gave me. However, I am just the lightweight; It my dedicated staff to whom most of the heavy lifting and credit is due. I will be certain to let them know of your comments. I look forward to seeing you again in the future and trust my staff will be just as diligent.

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.

I was looking for a place that was a little away from Muskegon after a day at Michigan's Adventure. Virtually all of the reasonably priced hotels there had horrible reviews and/or bedbugs. This place was spotless. The ambiance was wonderful. The continental breakfast was great! The room was nice with a nice TV and bed. I can't say enough positives about this place. A cool pizza place across the street, Spanky's, was excellent and not terribly expensive. The cost is soooo low compared to Muskegon. Stay at this pace. It's worth the extra twenty minute drive away from Muskegon!

Thank you Segura for selecting the Harrington Inn as your Michigan Adventure hotel. We have many guests enjoying this very nice West Michigan attraction which is a very easy and relatively short drive from Fremont. Other short-drive attractions are the Muskegon and White Rivers with their great fishing, canoeing and tubing opportunities, the backwaters of the Hardy Dam, several area golf courses, Lake Michigan and many hiking trails. Also, thank you for the credit you gave to my staff for maintaining a very clean and friendly environment. Should your vacation travels bring you back to West Michigan, we will be here to serve you.

Thank You for your comments! It was our pleasure to provide you with "great" service in a pleasant environment. Serving guests, while eliminating human errors, is the focus in all of our staff meetings. Having guest feel at home, while they are away on business, is certainly a wonderful way to spend a portion of my day. Should your travels again bring you to the Fremont area again, we certainly welcome your return.

After nearly 3 weeks of camping (in a small motor home without the shower working), we decided to treat ourselves for our last night by staying in a motel. A friend, whose home we spent our last two nights of camping near Newaygo, recommended the Harrington Inn, though she didn't know of anyone who had actually stayed there. We were able to make reservations shortly before arrival and treated ourselves to a king-size room with Jacuzzi. We very much enjoyed this room, both its size and comfortable bed with 6 pillows and of course the Jacuzzi was great to soak and relax in after all our camping! Oh, and the complimentary cookies available at check-in were some of the best I've EVER tasted! It was nice to meet owner Lou while we had breakfast prior to departure. This hotel was worth the $$$!

Thank you for your comments about your stay at the Harrington Inn hotel. We are pleased that you were able to get some special comfort and relaxation after a busy time of camping. Although she has heard from other guests, I will pass on your special comments to my Operations Manager, Anne, about the wonderful cookies that are provided to our guests in the afternoon. It was also my pleasure to meet and chat with you during your stay. I look forward to seeing you again. Please thank your family for suggesting the Harrington Inn to you.
