We found this hotel a year ago for our fall vacation. We liked the coziness of the rooms and the hospitality of the staff. The location and price really fit our needs, so with what we felt was a "home run",decided to plan our fall vacation with this hotel again this year. Upon arriving we were invited to visit relatives downstate... More

I am so sorry for what seems to be a horrible misunderstanding and miscommunication all the way around. When the vehicle owners did not show up on the date I was told they would return, I attempted to find a phone number for them online and all numbers associated with them had been disconnected. We had recently had a vehicle... More

Stayed for 3 nights - very happy with the staff and lodging - this a nice, comfortable motel with reasonable prices in a good location if you like biking, hiking, fishing and walks to town for dinner. The room we were in was nicely decorated and clean. The bicycle trail (bestie valley trail) was great. I highly recommend the ride... More

Frankfort is a cute little town on the upper coast of Lake Michigan. This motel fits right in with the town. It is great to stay in a non-chain motel in a little resort area like this. The motel is old but clean and the motel is nicely decorated both inside and out. You can walk to town and there... More

My husband and I enjoyed our stay at the Bay Port Lodge in Frankfort. Walking distance to everything from restaurants, beach, pier, bicycle trail. Frankfurt is a hidden gem, family oriented, many shops, restaurants and very close to Sleeping Bear Dunes. Our room was comfortable, extremely clean, pictures are honest to your stay!

Quaint lodging with a personal touch by charming owners. This place is clean and has character along with a great location to shopping, dining, and the beach, along with biking and walking trails just blocks from the front door. There is even a large grocery store 1 blk away for all of your needs. The owners are super friendly and... More

Great small motel in Frankfort. Clean nicely decorated rooms. Nice grounds including special touch of hammocks under the shade trees. Owner Luann was a gem. She was genuinely positive helpful and interested in my stay. Frankfort is a just right sized town close to The national lakeshore with nice lighthouse and brewpub walking distance to motel. Thanks Luann.

We just got home a few days ago from our first stay here. It was just what we wanted - a clean, quiet, comfortable place in a great location. We obviously knew we weren't staying in a hilton resort so as long as you aren't expecting that - it's perfect. We went back and forth between frankfort, traverse city, and... More

Very quaint, comfortable, clean. Rooms are all decorated a bit different, from french country to nautical. Great location. Close to downtown, fishing and bike path. With Bay Port Lodge being a hidden gem, the owner, LuAnn is a jewel. We would stay no other place in Frankfort, Mi.

Our stay at Bay Port was remarkable. The lodge is adorable and welcoming, as well as perfectly located and affordable. The rooms are beautifully decorated and very clean. As if that wasn't enough, the owner and staff were top notch. We truly felt like we were surrounded by amazing friends. We certainly plan to stay here again and we will... More
