Reservations process was easy. Room was clean and spacious for an older establishment. The proprietor was welcoming and helpful. The hotel location is in the downtown area. Easy walking distance to restaurants and the beach. They serve a light breakfast every day.

Hotel Nichols was very cozy, clean and conveniently located in downtown South Haven. It is close to the beach and Black River.

We really enjoyed staying here, the rooms were very clean and the great thing about it was it's right by everything so you don't even have to drive around. They even had a free breakfast every morning that was very fresh. I would definitely stay here again.

Unexpected unique little place! Convent to everything downtown. Being so close to the street I thought we might hear street noise, but not sound. One of my best nights sleep in a long time. Look forward to staying there again next year!

Very homey place...the owners go out of their way to help with any questions, fix any issues with your room, etc. Breakfast is included, and included fresh fruit! Perfect location in town - doesn't require a car for any town activities. Parking available at close by lots.

We stayed in Apartment A. This was much larger than the pictures let on. The kitchen was nice. We were able to cook dinner and it was great to unload the coolers and use the refrigerator. The beds were comfortable. There was good water pressure in the shower. Very homey. Looking forward to staying again.
