We came into the hotel at 10:30 at night and had to leave again by 6am. Unfortunately it was dark the entire time so we didn't get to see the beautiful beach view it has. Located right on the beach in the cozy town of Frankfort. I plan on taking my wife back here to enjoy the bragged about spa... More

Stayed here on 7/1/14 - I would definitely recommend getting a room with a view of Lake Michigan. The sunset was stunning and we even got to watch the Coast Guard run a practice rescue on the water (helicopter, boat). The room was better than I expected - extremely clean, comfortable beds, nice kitchen area, and the deck has a... More

Great vacation here. The room/resort was exactly as described. Outstanding accommodations, location, service. We stayed five nights. One of the reasons we chose Harbor Lights was the flexibility in scheduling our stay. It did not require a weekend to weekend stay, or seven nights. We stayed Thursday to Tuesday. At the last minute we changed our arrival/departure by one day,... More

We stayed in a 1 bedroom suite. It was very nice and updated with a full kitchen, jacuzzi tub in the bedroom, double sided fireplace and more. Everything seemed nice... we even commented that the carpet was high quality and soft! Only 2 negatives that kept it from being 5 star - the pull out bed was very uncomfortable. But... More

This was our first visit to Michigan. I researched several locations and found Harbor Lights Resort. At first I wanted a 2 bedroom condo to accommodate my family of 6, but at the time of the booking it was too early and they required a 7 night stay. We were only staying a few nights. So I booked a family... More

I have been staying here for over a month for work and they have repetitively gone above and beyond for to help accommodate me and my coworkers from finding us a last minute place to stay when plans changed. Would for sure come back for business or pleasure.

I planned my family reunion at Harbor Lights in June of 2014. I just can't say enough about the place. Everything was wonderful. The rooms were beautiful and the setting was just perfect. From the sandy beach to the marina and light house nothing could have been more perfect. In addition to that the staff was very friendly. Steve helped... More

I am always nervous using unbranded properties, and this was no exception, but we were completely delighted with our stay. The room was fairly modest, but the bed was comfortable, the linens and pillows were great, the towels were nice, the wifi was excellent, the donuts and coffee were very good, the pool and hot tub were nice, clean and...

This resort offers larger housekeeping/condo units as well as motel units. All seem well appointed and comfortable; and the location of this lodging is ideal for the area. The main street of Frankfort is just a block away, and the beach of Lake Michigan is merely a few yards away. It's a simple place and, therefore, reasonably priced. No breakfast... More
