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

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.
