We started out our anniversary weekend hoping to stay at the Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island but alas, it was not to be. Begrudgingly, I took a tip from a friend and thought we'd try the Inn at Bay Harbor. Having spent many years of my childhood at the Grand, the Inn was going to have to go far to... More

Absolutely loved this place and it is all thanks to Alison in Customer Care. We had come from Dallas and had had some personal situations that I thought would put a huge damper on a trip that we were not ready to go at the time but Alison took such good care of my family. She set us up in... More

The Inn at Bay Harbor is in a spectacular location on Lake Michigan, within driving distance of many area attractions. The resort is also very well suited to just kicking back with a book, a beverage and completely relaxing from the grind that is every day life. The staff is very friendly and they provide excellent service. The food is... More

My wife and I had a most enjoyable stay at this hotel. Views are terrific. Staff is great. Location is perfect for jaunts into Petoskey. Before I wrote this review I looked to see what other reviewers said. The ones who stated that this is a rundown hotel with a snooty staff are full of crap. They must have mistaken... More

We are so appreciative of the beautiful room, view and service. My husband was ill for the better part of our stay and we were able to make the most of it. The room service staff and breakfast staff were exceptionally accommodating, and our times in the s. American grille were greatly appreciated. We especially enjoyed the cabana grille entertainment...

My first visit ever to Northern Michigan and it was lovely. The Inn at Bay Harbor has a fantastic staff who were welcoming and helpful our entire visit. The setting is beautiful on the lake and the inn is very picturesque. We stayed in a suite which was spacious with a balcony, electric fireplace and kitchen. The furnishings are a... More

We had a nice stay with our children. Room prices seemed high for what is offered, but they were able to work with us by removing the "free" breakfast (brought the room rate down by $40/night). The wall bed was so much more comfortable for the kids than a pullout. Our boys enjoyed the outdoor pool and were grateful that... More

Spent three nights in this run down hotel with a spectacular view and apathetic is not arrogant staff. Great place for kids to run on the village green; wonderful sunsets; easy access to Petoskey and Harbor Springs. Crooked Tree golf is right across the street. The front desk could care less; the lobby is sterile; the place needs a good... More

I want to give this hotel a great review, but under it's current condition I can't. The location is great, the view of the lake is beautiful, but the hotel is very rundown. The exterior of the hotel is dirty and the paint is peeling everywhere. I agree with previous reviews that the lobby seems sparse and the rooms are... More

This hotel has really gone downhill in the last year. The lobby was so sparsely decorated that I thought they might be closing down. Where did all the lovely art go? The staff seems cold and unfriendly. The drinks at the South American are getting smaller and weaker with each visit. The service is incredibly slow. The menu was SO... More
