Just spent 7 nights here on points (cat 6, now cat 7). Room was a resort-view double (queens), and depending on how the categorize things (kept forgetting to ask), that's what we got. View of the water from the balcony/corner of the room. Room was booked as a PP, and at least some of the nights were sold out during... More

At check in we had Kathy who was friendly, knowledgable and professional. I had read some reviews about staff not being interested or friendly--we did not experience that. From the bellman to the bartender to the cleaning staff and everyone at the front desk--all fabulous. Rooms are large, very clean and comfy. One negative is there isn't a couch in... More

I was more than happy with how wonderful the staff were in locating me additional nights (after a cancellation from another guest) to make a smooth transition while I attended my nephew's wedding celebration. This was a 4 day affair. Originally they were sold out and I would have had to change hotels. Kudos to Allision. Also to the concierge... More

I spent 4 nights at the Inn with girlfriends. Our room rate was $500+ per night. Do not mistake that this is a well managed, Renaissance/Marriott property. The location and views from the Lake rooms are phenomenal, but that would be the only thing I would rate phenomenal at this property. We were initially placed in a room with no... More

We took four grandchildren on a four-day getaway. We found the food above-average and a reasonably priced room service menu as well. Rooms are not inexpensive, but once there we found complimentary DVD player, rollaway, and bicycles for the family to use. We were also able to maneuver through a peanut allergy and gluten-free needs for our grandkids and the... More

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...
