My husband and I spent one night here, and had a great time! Everything about the place is well done.....the location, the hospitable staff, the rooms, the on-site restaurant. We happened to be here on a beautiful day in the fall, with temps around 80!! We first spent time at Warren Dunes, before checking into our room. We wanted a... More

This is a cute hotel right by the harbor and close to the beach. The staff was friendly and helpful. It is a little pricey but it's worth it. You can rent free movies, breakfast is delivered right to your door, there is a shower and whirlpool in the bathroom, and you get a nice view of the harbor. There... More

We booked late and got a single night on a weekend just prior to a bicycling event. They delivered breakfast at two different times: one for the cyclist and the other for the person who relaxed instead. Our room was right off the lobby and over the restaurant. I did hear some noise from both, and didn't have the soundest... More

This is our go-to place for ND football weekends. Very friendly, clean, nice hotel. My only complaint was that I reserved a room with a pull out sofa. They switched out the sofas with non pull-outs but did not let us know. Our kids weren't happy about that but they survived. It would have been nice to be notified of... More

We spent two nights at the Harbor Grand. Our room was a suite, with a bedroom with king bed and a sitting area with a couch (I assume pull-out, we didn't need it), small desk, and TV. Our room was on the third floor, overlooking the parking lot, no fireplace or balcony. The bed was very comfortable, the couch not... More

The Harbor Grand was a great & relaxing getaway. Our room was clean & quaint with a beautiful view overlooking the Harbor. The breakfast picnic basket in bed, was truly one of my favorite parts of the trip. The pool, hot tub & chaise lounges helped to add to our much needed R&R. The Italian restaurant did not disappoint. We... More

So far so good. All staff is outstanding! Lovely place. Have a 3rd fl room with garden tub, close fireplace. No terrace. Doors open to outside but no screen. :( But Great restaurant. You may need to specify "no feathers or down" since all comforters are down. They accommodated as best they could when I expressed a need...but you should... More

We were here in August 2016 with kids. The hotel is in a great location, within walking distance of the beach and the downtown area. We had a suite and it was plenty big enough for two adults and two children. There is not a pull-out couch, but a large L-shaped couch that was big enough for a 7-year-old and... More

Wonderful stay at this charming inn for our anniversary. Gloria (front desk) could not have been more gracious and generous. We received a welcome basket and free dessert at dinner for our anniversary. Very nice touch. The room was quiet and comfortable. The "Breakfast in Bed" was exceptional and arrived right on time and was delicious. Very nice stay. Thanks... More

“The Village Suites are great. The Harbor view isn't all that great, so I can't say it's worth paying more for the "view".”
