I could not have picked a better venue for our reception. This place KNOWS WEDDINGS. The staff is extremely friendly, knowledgeable, and flexible. Sam Swiftney, their event coordinator, was the person who really made the day easy to plan and made it all run smoothly. He was helpful, friendly, and checked on us throughout the weekend (and throughout the entire planing process!) to ensure everything went off without a hitch. Thank you, Sam Swiftney! Their food is to die for (we had a buffet, but they also offer plated meals too). Everyone complimented us on the yummy food. The bar staff was friendly, despite our somewhat rowdy bunch! The rooms are spacious and clean. The grand ballroom was the perfect place for our daytime reception and had plenty of room for all 90+ guests and even our ridiculously-sized 18 person wedding party! The hotel itself is beautiful and sits on a beautiful waterfront view. This venue was perfect for us!Sent on 06/20/2018

Our wedding was made perfect by our Holiday Inn wedding coordinator, Sam. I felt like his only client whenever we met, spoke on the phone or emailed. His attention to detail, problem solving, ideas, and kindness was beyond my expectations! Every guest raved about how good the food was (we did a buffet dinner) and how beautiful their outdoor event space was (we had our wedding under the tent on the lawn). Weather was perfect (Labor day weekend wedding) and we couldn't have asked for a more perfect place to get married! Our guests enjoyed their stay! Overall- TOP NOTCH VENUE!!!! We were beyond impressed and wish we could re-live it again!!Sent on 09/18/2017

Definitely recommend! Molly, the coordinator, is so quick at replying to emails. She is also awesome to work with. If you think it's too expensive, talk to them. They're willing to make custom plans to suit your needs. The only thing that was chaotic really was the day of, before the ceremony, but that was partly to blame on it being a wedding, us, and the weather. One other downfall is if you're checking in as a guest staying at the hotel, you really can't check in until 3. Some of our guests ran into issues because our ceremony was at 4, so keep that in mind. Otherwise, I'm glad we booked here, and I'd recommend doing it too.Sent on 08/27/2016

I contacted and visited Holiday Inn Grand Haven-Spring Lake. Their representatives were very helpful, friendly and responsive. They took care to tend to the smallest details to be sure our event and stay were perfect. The area and service made for an extremely special day! We received so many compliments about how beautiful, intimate and touching our day was. People imagined that we had to put so much money into having such an exceptional event. That really was not the case. We made priceless memories that fit our budget. Everyone who stayed at Holiday Inn congratulated us, we truly received the love and support of not only the staff, but the community of people in Grand Haven. It was truly perfect in every way and we are thankful for the amazing memories. We can't wait to visit again to re-live the fond memories created there. Molly Rand gave me complete confidence in every aspect and I entrusted details with her without hesitation or question. Best Day/Best Decision!!!Sent on 07/30/2016

Caitlin · Married on 10/18/2014
From start to finish, everything was handled with amazing professionalism and friendliness. Any and all inquiries, requests, and suggestions were handled and/or answered usually within 24 hours with an incredible amount of flexibility. The biggest decision for our day (where to have the ceremony/reception) was the easiest because of the staff and management. Every detail was treated as though it were the most important. The atmosphere and food were nothing short of perfect!Sent on 11/02/2014

Molly Tuma at Grand Haven/Spring Lake Holiday Inn was absolutely fantastic. She was professional while being incredibly caring, personable, and sweet. She went above and beyond the call of duty for us! We live 3.5 hours away and Molly was willing to meet with us on Sunday when our travel schedule permitted. In addition, I had trouble finding a hair/make up artist as the annual Coast Guard festival was going on. Molly was the one who made the contacts and found someone for me. I can't say enough wonderful things about Molly Tuma! She made planning a destination wedding stress free, simple, and easy. We LOVED the look of our reception (including the flowers which Molly put us in contact with as well), the wait staff was professional and pleasant, happy, and helpful. It was a wonderful wedding! Thank you Molly!Sent on 08/20/2014

Molly Tuma at the Spring Lake Holiday Inn is an absolute joy to work with. She played a key role in ensuring our wedding and all the details came together they way we wanted. Molly is sweet, professional, organized and exceptionally quick responding to any concerns/questions.Sent on 07/10/2014
Living in Florida and planning a wedding in Michigan or any other state for that matter isn't easy. You most likely won't be able to see every decor component you are deciding on for your wedding. However, Molly did a fantastic job providing us pictures of everything we needed to make decisions on: lighting, linens, table sizes, floor plans. Her thorough communication helped us make the best selections for our needs.
Thank you Molly, Collette, and the rest of the staff at Spring Lake Holiday Inn for a beautiful day. We enjoyed your great locations, excellent customer service, and hotel renovations. The best Looking Holiday Inn I have ever stayed at.

The entire Holiday Inn staff was absolutely wonderful. I could not be more pleased with the support they provided before on my wedding. We loved them so much, we booked our rehearsal dinner there as well! The food was delicious, the atmosphere was lovely, and the service was outstanding! I adored working with Molly Tuma and Collette Taylor. I got the opportunity to work very closely with Molly during the planning stages. She was kind, responsive, attentive, and always had my best interest at heart. I have nothing but wonderful things to say about the Holiday Inn- Spring Lake location! I can't wait to visit again!Sent on 02/24/2014

I can not say enough great things about Collette and the Spring Lake Holiday Inn. From the moment I sent Collette an email introducing myself, I have felt like her only bride (and I know there are many, many more than just me). She put every ounce of herself into our wedding making sure it was my perfect day. When my chair cover vendor came through with the most wrinkled chair covers ever, Collette personally took off every single one and put them through the drier to take out the wrinkles. She is accomodating, caring, empathetic and is simply the best. She will go to bat for her brides and make your day absolutely perfect. I can not thank her enough. She is AMAZING!!!Sent on 11/10/2009
The food was perfect, the staff was attentive, the bartending was quick and all of my guests felt at home from the hotel staff. I would not change a single thing about the Holiday Inn. It was the best reception I have ever been to--and I'm not being partial because it was my wedding. Collette and her team made it the best and made my wedding the best day of my life. THANK YOU!!!!!!
