Everything Under One Roof.

Simple. Elegant. Easy.

We can make any bride’s dream come true, whether it’s an elegant sit down dinner, a wedding at sunset on our Great Lawn overlooking the Grand River, or an outdoor wedding reception dancing under the stars.

We work with the best wedding suppliers in Michigan to ensure we have exactly what you want, and we work within your budget too. But best of all, you will have peace of mind knowing your guests will retreat to a comfortable, onsite room after the night is over. Something THEY will appreciate.

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!

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.

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!

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!!!
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!!!!!!

I was worried about everything, like I'm sure all brides are, but The Waterfront Holiday Inn of Grand Haven - Spring Lake took care of all of it. Molly, their wedding coordinator, was extremely professional and made sure all of my needs were taken care of. I was extremely happy with the overall experience and would highly recommend it to any couple looking for a simple, elegant wedding.

My experience working with this vendor was excellent. I was especially impressed with their wedding specialist, Molly, who was well organized, had great suggestions, and went above and beyond to answer my emails and make last-minute meetings with me. I wasn't using my own wedding planner and was doing everything from out of state, so this level of service is was what sold me on using them for our reception. I gave Service a 4.5 just because there was a little confusion between Molly and the banquet coordinator as we got closer to the event, but everything was straightened out quickly and with very little hassle. They worked with our vendors well and even did some of the setting up themselves, which really helped me relax and enjoy our day. Overall they did a great job and worked with us on everything we wanted.
We had our reception in the ballroom with about 120 guests. We fit perfectly with this number, and I may have been nervous to try to fit more. We were able to use the smaller meeting room for the bar/appetizers, which I think helped open up the space a bit. The only thing that would have increased the value for me would be if the room had some natural light/better lighting. The room is nice, but I would not describe it as fancy in its own right. If I had had a little more time I may have done more decoration/lighting on the walls/ceiling.
Lastly, the food was amazing. We only heard good things about it, and I'm fairly confident everyone genuinely enjoyed it. We had several people who needed to make special arrangements due to dietary restrictions, and the Holiday Inn worked with us on all of these and put just as much thought/care into the alternative dishes as the main entree choices. This was great because I've been to a lot of weddings where they seem to skimp on the vegetarian option...
I could tell that the Holiday Inn had a lot of experience handling these events and truly cared about us. I would highly recommend this venue for a wedding reception!

Every wedding has a few day-of problems, but Molly and her team at Holiday Inn tried effortlessly to make sure our day ran smoothly!

We planned our wedding from out-of-state and greatly appreciate her quick responses via email to all our questions. She was also very flexible with what we wanted and needed to make our day special.

I think they did a wonderful job making our wedding special and trying to help with last minute emergenices, like a storm right before our outdoor wedding. They rushed to make sure an indoor spot was avaiable if need be. Fortunately, the skies cleared and our tented, waterfront wedding went off without a hitch.

I would recommend this venue to anyone looking for a nice, simple setting for their event.

The only complaint I really have is the price of hotel rooms for my guests- many of whom came from around the country and stayed in Coopersville because the rates were too high. Part of the reason I chose this location was for the convince of a hotel along with my reception venue. However I was very impressed with the staff going above and beyond to make my day extra special!

My daughter's ceremony and reception were held at the Spring Lake Holiday Inn. Everyone was very attentive to what was needed to make her day special; including, watching the thunder heads above to wiping down the chairs outdoors. Our guests were extremely pleased with the food selection (buffet with salmon and ribs. Yes, ribs...the meat fell off right off the bone) and raved about how it tasted. A day that started out with rain, rain, rain; turned into a beautiful and fun occasion!

We had our guests stay at the HI Spring Lake and had our ceremony on the lawn overlooking the marina. The hotel could use some updates in the rooms but they are clean and were very affordable for what is considered the areas' off season. The wedding contact changed during our planning season, but the replacement contact was great. Unfortunately the initial contact gave us quite a bit of lip service.
The grounds were beautiful for the day of our wedding and everything went off without a hitch outside- I just recommend double checking on the backup room in case it rains!

The price was great for the location and day, but unfortunately they also booked another ceremony and reception the same day and due to my reception being outside, our wedding had to be later (we didn't get to start till almost 7pm!) It was also confusing knowing who we were supposed to contact because the girl I originally talked to had quit and no one notified me, and someone else took charge and we had to start all over again. It was like pulling teeth getting in contact with who was in charge throughout the whole planning process which frustrated everyone. But when it came down to the day of the wedding, everything turned out perfect

We had our rehearsal dinner here. We preselected 5 menu items for our guests to choose from. Everything went well, but we all had our dinners at separate times. I was completely finished with my meal before the steaks were even brought out. We had a big group and we only had two servers (one was new). So our service wasn't up to par.

SLHI was very responsive about answering questions and helpful in the planning process, especially Molly Tuma and Janet Olah. My only critique is that night of the reception, the catering staff did not inform us they would be removing the food. As a busy bride and groom greeting all of the guests, it is common courtesy to let either the bride, groom, parents or master/mistress of ceremonies know that the food will be put away. SLHI staff failed do this and neither the groom or bride had anything to eat nor did the staff save food for the bride and groom. It was disappointing and not expected from such a nice place.

We’re glad that you were satisfied with the service of our employees throughout the planning process for your event. We do our best to exceed our guests’ expectations. In regards to weddings, whether a smaller appetizer-only buffet or larger plated dinner-in our experience, it is customary that the bride and groom have their food first. Unfortunately in this particular instance there was a miscommunication and we sincerely apologize that the bride and groom were not consulted prior to the food removal as servers assumed the bride & groom had eaten first. We’ve met with staff regarding this issue and are constantly working on improving our service and communication on all fronts. Unfortunately we cannot change the circumstances of that night but we are open to discussions for a mutual resolution and hope that you will choose our property for another future event.
