We enjoyed the location and the clean room. The location was great just off the beach. We had the smallest cheapest room there which was a rectangle with two queen beds, small bathroom/shower with a sink outside the bathroom. The TV cabinet included a small fridge and microwave. Decent enough room to sit for a little bit and get ready... More

We will definitely return to this resort. The location was perfect for our vacation. My husband and I love to bike, swim, and hike. This place had it all within a very short distance, in fact we could just get on a bike path right outside of our door. Our room was not on the beach but it only took... More

I love this resort! Like home away from home but with a beach and a Jacuzzi tub! We got a suite that had a kitchen, fireplace Jacuzzi...everything you would want. Very romantic and clean, right by the beach, literally. Quiet and very nice.

I had read all the great reviews on- line about Harbor Lights Resort and was looking forward to staying there. I called ahead and spoke with a receptionist and asked if the hotel ground level rooms were musty-smelling since this resort is located on the beach. He assured me that all the rooms were alike and have no musty odors.I... More

Our room was very spacious and comfortable. We had a kitchen, living room area, and separate bedroom. There was also a hot tub in the bedroom area and a fireplace between the bedroom and living room. The hotel check in people were very nice and fresh donuts were provided in the morning for all hotel guests. The indoor pool was... More

Frankfort Michigan is very beautiful. The Harbor Lights Resort is an amazing place with a great spot right on Lake Michigan. The resort has condos, townhouses, and motel style rooms. We had a blast being able to walk to town, beach, and the lighthouses. I highly recommend a stay.

We booked this resort never having stayed here or known anyone who had in the past. Our goal was a spot on the beach where we could just hang out. Mission accomplished, but with so much more than we imagined. We were only able to reserve a motel room within walking distance (around the building) to the beach. That is... More

Steps away from the beach on one side and the town on the other. Extremely friendly and helpful front desk and housekeeping staff. Very clean with comfy beds. And they offered delicious donuts & coffee each morning. Only complaints would be that the room was very dark, even with all lights on, and the shower was too short for those... More

The view is stunning, the accommodations nice. Wish we would have stayed much longer. It took about 15 minutes to realize we should have stayed 15 days....The beach is clean and accessable.A greatv place to read a book or play in the sand.

We stayed in one of the motel rooms for three nights. The location is wonderful as you can walk out your door and be on the beach within steps. From the motel we were able to walk out on the pier and downtown to all the shops and have dinner or a drink. We brought our bikes and there is... More
