Was able to check off a bucket list item by viewing a perfect sunrise over Lake Huron (Oscoda) and follow the sun across Michigan to view a perfect sunset over Lake Michigan (Frankfort). We did not have a reservation but they were able to put us in a beautiful condo that we could walk right out onto the beach to... More

This is a busy place! We could only get 2 nights reservation - the weekend was booked even though it was mid September. All king rooms were booked so we stayed in a room with 2 queen beds. Comfortable beds, updated decor, single serve coffee maker that served much better tasting coffee than most hotel rooms. The complex sits right... More

We just wrapped up a 3 night stay at Harbor Lights with family and friends for a wedding. The net result is that we stayed in just about all their different accommodations: motel units, 1 bedroom suites, 2 bedroom condo and 3 bedroom condo. Everyone was very satisfied with Harbor Lights. The staff was courteous and helpful. One plus for... More

The facilities are clean and right on the beach! Very family friendly and a short walk to the marina. We enjoyed the ability to sit on the beach in the morning and walk on the pier to watch the boats. Walking distance to downtown will stay again.

Our family stayed at the Harbor Lights Resort in July 2014 as part of a family reunion. The room was nice, and the staff was fabulous. It was right on Lake Michigan and at the edge of Frankfort, Michigan. The town is a lovely vacation town. it is also a short drive to the Great Bear Dunes National Park which... More

We were pleasantly surprised at the size of the luxury suite we stayed in. It`s 2 large rooms with a full size kitchen. The king size bed/bedroom had a Jacuzzi tub & closet space to hang up clothes. We stayed 3 days so we used the closet. The kitchen has everything you`d need to make your own meals, which we... More

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
