    “It’s The Most Wonderful Crime of the Year” Murder Mystery Experience


Wonderful people, wonderful hotel, wonderful time. We absolutely loved staying at the Hotel Nichols, and cannot wait to stay there again. The staff was so wonderful, and they were incredibly accommodating. The hotel was clean and beautifully maintained, and was located in a perfect part of South Haven. We were able to walk everywhere.

Super sweet boutique hotel experience right around the corner from Old Harbor Village in South Haven. The owner welcomed us in, offered us a pint and showed us around. The room was neat and tidy with period fixtures. There was an actual room key. In the morning there was complimentary local coffee and local donuts in the reception area. Felt like stepping back in time. True hospitality.

Great place for a girls night! It was an excellent location, clean and spacious. We stayed in Room 1 which had two rooms which was perfect for our needs.

The Garden Room revels in its original wood and exposed brick. It reflects the vintage/rehabbed modern look of the Historic Hotel Nichols.
