Sometimes spur of the moment mini vacations can turn out to be awesome, and sometimes not. We decided to head to Frankfurt for the Labor Day (2013) holiday weekend last minute. So calling around we found that this was the only place that had any vacancy. That was the 1st flag that we missed. We were greeted by the owner... More

Unfortunately this review is the result of a motel guest who did not want to be responsible/accountable for his same day, late afternoon 3 night cancellation for the house next door. After his verbal abuse and texts of profanity and threats failed to get him his desired outcome, he attempted to dispute the 1 night charge with his credit card... More

The location is excellent for walking around downtown Frankfort. The room was very clean and comfortable. We stayed on the street front with 2 retro metal chairs out front to relax in at the days end. There is a beautiful garden and 2 hammocks out front. We would definitely stay here again.

My family stopped at Marshall's Bay Port Lodging with no reservations during the start of the 4th of July week. Luckily we found a room available, and were greeted by the lady that owns the business. The room was quite small, but very clean and comfortable. I was somewhat concerned because our room was RIGHT on the main road.....but I... More

I was in town with a friend for almost a week and this house was very comfortable. The house is very well maintained and whoever does the housecleaning is doing an excellent job. There were plenty of towels, a washer and dryer, shampoo, dish soap, etc. Perhaps the most important for me were the VERY COMFORTABLE BEDS. I would most... More

We stayed at this motel for one night. It was not luxurious. but cute and very clean. The rates were good and the owner was very nice. We used the hammocks outside of our room in the evening and walked to a great restaurant for breakfast in the morning. Nice place to stop for the night!

If you are a fan of chain hotels with breakfast included, swipe keys, indoor hallways, etc., this is not your place. But if you like the kinder gentler pace of the Mom & Pop motel experience, Bay Port Lodging would be hard to beat. Very reasonable rates, even in "high" season for a lake shore town. The owners have worked... More
