Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Pretty Particular very pleasantly surprised
Location of property is right off expressway and very close to downtown Grand Haven. Pretty setting sitting on marina. The rooms and common areas appear to be recently renovated, and I was pleasantly surprised that it didn't feel like a Holiday Inn of the 1980s! The amenities were nice with both an indoor and outdoor pool, which were heated nicely according to the kids. Pool towels are ridiculously small, so bring your beach towel. There is an outside deck/bar that had live music, which was nice while looking at the marina. There is some green space for kids to run around. The restaurant was extremely busy for breakfast with several very large groups ..plus being the start of the July 4weekend. The staff worked very hard as a team with everyone pitching in and tending to all tables. Even non wait staff were helping. Everyone was friendly,professional, and the food came quickly with all things considered. I did think the price was high for a Holiday Inn (180ish), but felt a bit better about it after seeing the property.

No microwave, no refrigerator, ran out of ice in ice machine. Beds seemed smaller than std., could not sleep two, would not put in cot or roll-away, had three people one had to sleep on the floor. No normal bkfst on Sunday had an expensive brunch instead. Only thing done to rooms was to replace towels and make beds, waste baskets not emptied, floors not vacuumed during 4 night stay.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Woodly Comfortable stay and convenient room
This was a getaway stay celebrating our 43rd wedding anniversary. this was our third year back to Holiday Inn - Grand Haven. We had a pleasant stay , in a convenient, comfortable room with nice fresh decor and lots of nice fluffy bath towels. Good room service.
We ate breakfast twice at the hotel restaurant - Jack's. Dining room has beautiful glass wall view of Spring Lake Channel overlooking the Holiday Inn docks. The glass wall windows could have been cleaner especially the sills with dead bugs, the Harbor view is really the whole attraction there ? First meal was so so, dry omelet, over cooked strip steak (ordered medium rare came well done), manager did adjust bill slightly $5.00 on $28.00 meal. Next morning breakfast was better, served very hot meal was excellent had waffle/sausage links, pancakes/bacon a plenty, much better !
While there we enjoyed local attractions - beach and channel activities. All in all we had a very nice pleasant stay at Holiday Inn - Grand Haven and enjoyed ourselves.

This was our 2nd time here. We absolutely love it! The only thing I wish is that the rooms had a mini fridge. The location is perfect, only minutes in the car to the beach and shops in Grand Haven. We drove to Saugatuck one day as well. Very nice hotel, we will be back! The food at Jacks is pretty awesome too!

The room was quiet and vary clean. The hotel staff at the front desk were great. Geri was able to give me driving directions to the hotel which was easy to understand. The wait staff at the restaurant was great. Amanda was able to recommend an appetizer that was excellent. The bar staff was great and I enjoyed the comedy show!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Kikimole Excellent room. Awful Restaurant
We really enjoyed our room at this location. The room was clean, the staff was nice, and the location was superb.
I was overwhelmingly disappointed with the restaurant, though. We went for dinner and I ordered the "DOC’S GRILLED RIBEYE SANDWICH" with the description: 6 oz grilled ribeye served open faced on toasted wheat with lettuce, tomato, onion and a pickle
The meat was tough and rubbery and I was appalled that they served the steak on what looked like a slice of generic, 99 cent, grocery store bread. I was only able to get through the steak by smothering it in A-1 sauce, leaving the bread and 'bleh' veggies behind. We ended up ordering a pizza later that night as we both left feeling dissatisfied and hungry.
I'd recommend staying at the hotel, but definitely find a restaurant off-site.

Had a great time at HI Spring Lake. We saw fireworks from the dock and used both the indoor and outdoor pools. Had dinner at Jacks which was great as usual! Brought our bikes this time and rode around the Spring Lake Bike Path! Dog friendly! So nice to be able to bring our "other" children!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Ben05 Bad Experience
My family and I just stayed at two different Holiday Inns back to back. one night in Spring Lake. Michigan and the other night at 506 W. Harrison Street in Chicago, Illinois. Unfortunately had a horrible experience at both places. At Spring Lake the room was infested with flies that resembled fruit flies. Couldn't sleep all night. Complained to the front desk when we were checking out. Received an apology and we were on our way hoping for better luck at the next Holiday Inn in Chicago. At the Chicago Inn the room smelled of drainage. Complained to the lady at the front desk . She said she will send somebody to spray the drain in the shower. No one showed up. Being new and a first time visitor to Chicago I asked the same lady earlier for information about the metro in Chicago. I was told they do not have any information on the metro and that we were on our own. I regret staying at both places and also for signing up for their rewards program. Some reward for patronizing two Holiday Inns at two different locations!!

There is a sign at the road but not on the building.
The driveway is for multiple buildings.
For people unfamiliar with the area it was difficult to know which building was the hotel.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Manya14 Pardon the pun but I would have "reservations" about staying here
I booked my room over the Holiday Inn website and requested a roll-away bed because we had 3 teenagers with us. Upon arrival we were told that roll-away beds were not available, only in rooms that had a king-sized bed, which did not work for 5 people. We wanted to change hotels immediately but we were meeting friends for a short vacation. Our room was very musty smelling and the view was over the pool with the river in the far distance. Very disappointing considering we paid extra $ for this view! The other view would be a parking lot. The balcony was a joke and had room for 1 skinny person to move about. The electrical outlet behind the bed was loose and if someone sat on the bed it would disconnect the lamp and alarm clock. The bar/wait staff were great. The best part of the visit.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Spiritquest Wouldn't go back
Spent four days at this somewhat dated facility. First night sleep interrupted by band and elevator (do not stay in room 200).
Second night, band again, wedding party outside of room waiting for elevator, and actual elevator that made a "fog horn" noise every time someone used it.
Brought this to the attention of management and they gave us a breakfast voucher, which the restaurant initially refused to cover anything over $20 (Buffet and drinks was around $30).
Met with manager who covered the tab and at our request moved us into another room.
Last two nights were fine and the hotel did not bill us for one night's lodging (which was appropriate).
Room 200 should not be considered for guests, and I'm sure that we were not the first to have the "elevator" encounter. My point is that we should have never had to deal with this issue to begin with. Management deal with the issue fine, but it should have never occurred.
What ever happened to "no surprises"?
Not a happy camper! Probably would have been happier if I had been camping.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jane 314 Fitness equipment needs to be maintained.
I have been a guest at this facility in October of 2013 and most recently in May of 2014. Both times I used the pool, and fitness room. In October, 2 pieces of equipment we're not working and this most recent trip the same two were still not working . In addition, the weight machine also malfunctioned. The pool area is very nice but the hot tub is just that a tub of hot water with NO functional jets. I found it to be in this condition in October 2013 and again in May 2014. Let's get busy and fix this!

I'm normally traveling for work and prefer to stay at Holiday Inns when I travel. Now the Spring Lake Holiday Inn is a nice hotel with a great restaurant attached (Jacks# and it's in a great location #right on the water#. The staff for the most part are very friendly and helpful just don't be in a hurry, they tend to take their time.
The rooms are for the most part average and have one major disappoint, not all the rooms offer a frig!! When I'm staying multiple nights this is needed. Plus the hotel layout wasn't very well thought out being as half the upper floor only get to over look the ugly roof of the first floor and restaurant. Even if your on the 4th floor but towards the front of the hotel that roof is the only view! Always keep in mind that this hotel considers itself a resort/vacation location #especially in the summer) and will cater to very noisy guest at the dismay of others who have to work during their stay.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Ithacagetaway Good Weekend Stay with lots in the area
My wife had a conference so we decided to take our 3 yr. old and stay the weekend. My daughter and I got to use the pool and hot tub which we had lots of fun. The fitness room was average for hotels. They also offered a separate game room for people to hang out in without taking over the pool area. We enjoyed being close to Grand Haven which has lots to do and see. There is plenty of restaurants and shopping available.
The room was clean and stocked with plenty of towels including pool towels right in the room. That was nice so as long as you remembered to take them with you to the pool. The room was either too hot or to cold, the heater did not seem to keep a constant temperature. The bed was not very comfortable but the value was good for what we paid. Lots of TV channels to chose from if you stay in the room for extended periods of time.

The staff was very helpful and friendly and the room was cozy with a comfortable bed. We were "WOWED" by the view from our room. This hotel is minutes away from downtown Grand Haven, it was a very short drive. Jack's restaurant inside the hotel had some great tasting food and drinks. We had the privlege of having a live band playing at the restaurant/bar both nights of our stay. We will definitely be staying at this hotel again.
