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 wife and I recently stayed at Harbor Lights for our 4th anniversary and we had a perfect stay. We tried to check in early and we were not able to due to our room not being ready, no big deal we walked downtown and grabbed lunch at Storm Cloud Brewing (based on a recommendation from Steve at the Front...

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. I asked 2 questions, one was "is our room on the main floor" and her response was "all motels... More

My husband and I decided on Friday afternoon that we wanted to take a weekend trip somewhere up North. We usually head towards Traverse City... I called at least 20 hotels in Traverse City and surrounding areas and they were either totally booked or the rooms were between $200 and 400 per night! My husband told me to try looking... More

A: Clean, comfortable, basic room; beautiful location on Lake Michigan shore; proximity to marina with transient slips and easy-access harbor; helpful, friendly staff B: Coffee maker & closet are located in the bathroom; low-quality sheets, velour blankets, and bedspreads- upgrading to duvets with washable covers would be an ideal, modern touch C: noisy, inefficient, old-fashioned wall AC
