The reason my husband and I had to stay here was not happy (bereavement) but we have been around the area multiple times over the years. I had always wondered what it would be like to stay here and was very pleasantly surprised. The first key that this hotel was going to be great came as we were driving through... More

We stayed one night for my birthday in December, but haved stayed here a couple of times before. It's a great location, especially if you have a room overlooking the beach. We enjoy the deluxe suite, with view of the lighthouse. We have stayed in condo type rooms, with fireplace and they are nice too. It's probably a lot different... More

We were in town for a basketball tournament so we only stayed one night. Check-in was quick and the clerk at the front desk was very friendly. The room was spacious, spotless clean, and the beds were very comfortable. We stayed in Room #6, which doesn't have a lake view, but it's ground floor and you're able to park right... More

We were there 2 days. Nice, clean place just by the lake and close to main street. Large, clean and cozy room. Very friendly clark at the desk. I like the price we paid for it - 69.00 per night. I got it on one of those websides offering promotions, although it is hard to believe the price was previously... More

I would highly recommend this resort!! Went up north for a little R & R with the hubby and a little site seeing!! This is such a nice place to have as a home base. The rooms are so big and the hot tub and fireplace makes the stay so romantic. You are just an easy walk to the Storm... More

We were traveling through the area on a fall color tour. This place is located right on Lake Michigan! You can rent a condo, a suite or a hotel room. It was just the two of us and we were just staying one (1) night, so we chose the hotel room. The rate was great for a Friday night. ($109).... More

Harbor Lights Resort in Frankfort, MI is our "go to" place when we want to go north for the authentic Michigan experience! Harbor Lights Resort is right on Lake Michigan (with a gorgeous beach) & in the totally cool little harbor town of Frankfort, Michigan. Neat, super clean rooms with an immaculate indoor pool & hot tub on the premises.... More

My husband and I just returned from a two night stay at one of the condos at the resort. Our condo was a corner unit on the second floor with a nice view of Betsie Bay on one side and a small view of Lake Michigan on the other. The condo was spacious and nicely decorated with wood floors and... More

My husband and I were looking forward to checking out Frankfort and reserved one night at Harbor Lights Resort. After waiting for about 20 minutes to check in the women who finally got off the phone was very curt and rude.
