We visited for the first time over the New Year holiday and already made plans for next year! The condo was well equipped, very clean and spacious. The views were incredible and the convenience of walking to restaurants and stores added to the experience.

The pool and hottub were amazing. This time of year it was pleasantly quiet here so it felt like we had the whole place to ourselves.The staff was very professional and friendly...

We stayed five nights at the Harbor Lights Resort hotel in Room 54 and were highly satisfied and surprised by the spotlessly clean comfort that this room offered! The room did not offer a much of a view of Lake Michigan but we were advised in advance of this by the registration desk when we made our reservation. The purpose...

We had excellent service on our October visit to Harbor Lights. From our first phone call to the day we left. Everyone was friendly and helpful and accommodating. The suite we had was so cozy, clean and decorated beautifully. One day we had wind and rain and we had a wonderful time staying warm by the fireplace inside our room....

We stayed in suite 403, which was a ground floor unit with a full kitchen. We were a little disappointed that we couldn't see the beach from our room, but it was still a very nice room. The fireplace was a nice touch and the jacuzzi tub was great as well. Everything was exceptionally clean and well maintained, and we...

Talked to owner and told her same. They offered a king size room but bathroom no better and no handicapped parking. Got a $25 discount and the room was...

Stayed for a long weekend in one of the motel rooms and I would definitely go back again. You basically walk out your door, take a few steps and you're already at the beach parking lot....the beach is that close! Walking to town is super quick, too. I mean like a 1 block walk. So convenient. The pool area was...

We booked a room at this resort in April of this year. For the price, the room was very disappointing. It was comparable to or worse than a Super 8. It opened on to a parking lot and had cheap blinds on the window that faced the parking lot. The beds were hard and the bath room was very small....
