Great historic hotel in Petoskey. The sunsets really are million dollar sunsets. Super location. Excellent staff. Would stay here again if the dining room was open. Not sure why the best view in town was closed for dinner in the middle of July. Service on the patio was ok, but not what you expect borsch a nice hotel.

Dear Lori M, Thank you for staying at our hotel and for sharing your experience on Trip Advisor. Our staff works very hard to provide the kind of service to compliment our "million dollar sunsets". Several guests have commented about our main dining room during evening hours so I will attempt a brief explanation. The H.O. Rose dining room is... More

My husband and I stayed here one night. It was a great experience, we would have gladly spent more time. The hotel room was spacious and clean. The bed was comfortable. The room had large windows that actually open. Our room was city view but we were on the third floor and actually had a nice view of the water... More

The Perry is a small resort hotel in town. The service is impeccable, in part because the staff is small and they really get to know you. We had a gorgeous view of Lake Michigan from our room. I joined my husband at the end of a work trip for him so I don't know how much it cost but... More

We recently attended a large family brunch here. The food was excellent and so was the service. Only negative, there was no changing table in the ladies room which made it difficult. Otherwise very nice place.

This is a very old hotel. The only good feature is that it is right in downtown Petoskey. It really needs an update and I would not stay here ever again. I can say the food is good but there are many restaurants there.

For the convenience of the location this hotel is great. We were a family of 5 and walking vs. driving during busy July 4th time with 3 little ones was a benefit. Nice short walk to great Bay Front park. As for the rooms, I cannot remember ever staying in a hotel room with no coffee maker. Seriously, even cheap... More

Dear Jlefief, Thank you for spending part of your family vacation with us and for sharing your experience on Trip Advisor. Our hotel has been in continuous operation since 1899 so we certainly fit the "old fashion" moniker that is gold for some and I suppose lead for others. We continuously strive to find a nice mix of historic charm... More

Grew up in Petoskey, and have stayed here a couple times during recent visits. All three visits have been during non-peak times, so it's been affordable. Love mostly everything about this hotel, from the historic decor and the downtown location to the Noggin Room. The only thing preventing me from rating the Perry 5 stars is the snobbish/annoyed attitude of... More
