We stayed at Hotel Nichols this past weekend for my bachelorette party and the stay was amazing! We had the apartment Nichols and Sand Castle room and both were very nice. The hotel is in a GREAT location and the staff is beyond accommodating, kind, and everyone went above and beyond to make sure we had a lovely stay. I can’t wait to come back one day! :)

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.
