“GREAT place to stay in South Haven!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2011

Wow! What a great place this is. Our family (2 adults, 2 kids) recently spent 3 days here, and wish we could have stayed longer. We stayed in the Beach building on the ground floor. The rooms are very clean, simple, and painted in a light and airy color scheme. Beds are very comfy. The hardwood floors add a lot of ambience. The pool is new and a great place to kick back and relax. The grounds are beautiful also, with a nature trail, volleball net, and a 1 mile walking trail and firepit. You can really relax here! I get up earlier than most, and I would spend time each morning relaxing in the Adirondack chair on the porch in front of our room, sipping some of the complimentary coffee the staff provides. And, what a great staff! Everybody is very nice and makes you feel right at home. You're about 5 minutes from the harbor via North Shore Rd. on the Blue Star Highway. To top it all off, the rates are an incredibly good value. Their sign says "Clean, Comfortable, Affordable Lodging", and it's all true. We'll be back for sure. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Beach 106 and 107 are connected via an adjoining doorway. Each has a Queen sized bed (I think). Good...

This hotel had received poor reviews in the past but it is under new management now. The service was excellent, hotel staff was very helpful. The new owners have done a lot to renovate and make this a fun place to be. The rooms are smaller than some newer hotels but they are very clean and decorated nicely.The pool and outdoor areas are beautiful. There are activities on the grounds, nature path, games, and lots of outdoor seating areas. We would stay here again, the rooms are reasonable and the resort is very charming.

This was an awesome place to stay in South Haven Michigan. We have been traveling to South Haven for over 15 years and this is the first time we have stayed here and it sure won't been the last. They have a beautiful setting with a lot of activities to do such as a brand new pool with basketball and volleyball, a pond with a water fall and plenty of chairs, picnic tables, and pool chairs for everyone. They have a fire pit out back with additional yard games. The staff was so friendly and always there to help you. They are still in the progress of landscaping and updating the grounds and can't wait to see it when it's done. The rooms are small but cozy, very clean and fresh looking. Comfortable beds and each room has a microwave, coffee maker, hair dryer and a refrigerator. They sell ice for coolers right at the front desk. Very peaceful and relaxing. The price was very reasonable. They have a nice website.
