We enjoyed The Royal Suite on the second floor for a weekend getaway from Chicago. Definitely get a second or third floor room. The ones facing the front have cool curved walls too. Bathroom accommodations were sufficient, with toiletry items provided. Food and snacks were excellent! Quiet location with access to everything and private parking. And the hostess was welcoming...

We found the inn to be friendly and accomadating. We chose a large room on the second floor with a small private balcony. The room was clean and comfortable. Unfortunately the inn does not have a lot of common space for guests -one large room. About the only place to have breakfast is out on the wraparound porch. The lack...

Fabulous B & B. Excellent value. Warm, inviting staff, delicious well-prepared food. Quiet location, walkable to everything. We stayed 2 nights/3 days and never used the car. The room was cozy and charming without being too feminine, the bed was perfectly comfortable and the Inn is simply beautiful inside and out.

Location was great, staff was friendly and helpful, and the breakfast and snacks were delicious. We enjoyed being within walking distance of the beach and the downtown area, including the Maritime Museum, which was interesting and enjoyable.

My husband and I spent two nights here in late August, 2016. We had the Garden Room. It was roomy and had a private little porch area. The outside of the Inn is just lovely, with a wrap around porch. It has a small outdoor pool as well. The location is perfect for walking to the beach and around the...

Wonderful stay! Quiet location but only walking distance to the heart of South Haven. Staff was absolutely wonderful from the moment we arrived. Very clean comfortable rooms and lobby. The breakfast was delicious and appetizers were excellent!

Not cheap but darn good. Location was exactly as good as advertised. Room was the topmost "Tower Suite" (seen in the upper foreground in the street view publicity picture), one of three suites with spire ceilings, and it was utterly clean and more thoroughly equipped than we could take advantage of in our one-night stay. Breakfast, as befits the name...

but there were a few things lacking and/or not quite there for what one would expect for a B&B. On the positive side, the location is great. The beach is a short couple of blocks away, downtown is an easy walk of several blocks and the Park across the street is lovely to look at from the beautiful front porch....

We have stayed at the Sandcastle Inn many times over the past 20+ years and it just keeps getting better. Comfortable rooms, a great breakfast, a wide front porch to enjoy any time, plus a pool! And it is just a nice walk to town or the beach so you can park your car and get out to enjoy the...
