We come here every year in June. We have stayed in numerous different rooms, but the condos facing the water are by far the best. These condos are very well taken care of and super clean. Management here is by far some of the best around. On a daily basis room service comes and does what ever you ask of...

$129 for a room with a 2 person jacuzzi tub and fireplace along with a full kitchen. I loved it. The tub was perfect. Staff friendly. Room very clean. They thought of everything you would need. Right on the beach to catch a gorgeous sunset. Couldn't have asked for a better time.

We stayed March 24-26, 2017 in room 409, and our stay was AWESOME! It was a cold, gray, rainy weekend, but the second story room was just perfect, with a wonderful 2-sided fireplace that quickly and easily heated up the entire place. The unit we stayed in was like a 1-bedroom condo with a kitchen, living area, and a separate...

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.

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...
