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!

Beautiful and comfortable accommodations. It is like stepping back in time. The owners love this place and it really shows. Walking distance from beach, marina, top notch dining and beautiful sunsets.

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.

hotel is in a nice location. You can walk to Lake Michigan but it is a hike. The sunset was beautiful. The staff was helpful in recommending a place to eat and allow us to choose between two rooms to see which we liked better. Hotel has a home feeling to it.

Our second stay, same room. Clean, nice, enjoy the charm of this vintage hotel. Nice little breakfast included. We stay there because we can walk to everything and parking can be a challenge in town. The bathroom is very small and could be a challenge to a larger person but was fine for us.

The Yellow Cottage is managed by Hotel Nichols and is about a five minute drive from the Hotel. It was very comfortable for our two couples traveling along the Michigan shore. It was clean, great beds, had a living room, kitchen, washing machine and two great bedrooms. In a quiet neighborhood. I would highly recommend. We had a great little...

My young son and I just stayed at the Nichols for three nights and loved it. Our room was on the front of the hotel and we had nice views of the river. The location is excellent - walking distance to many restaurants and tons of shopping! We've been going there for years and hope to continue this tradition!
