The staff at all levels from desk to bar to door are all very professional and welcoming. The hotel is well maintained and clean. This is a Renaissance property with typical great beds. Here are the down sides: First they charge you a "resort fee" on top of the room charge yet this is not a resort. There is nothing... More

The Inn provides for an excellent getaway no matter when you stay. The staff is highly professional. The setting is exceptional. The amenities impeccable. This facility and the staff set the bar by which I compare all other Marriott properties. None compare to this property and the service the staff provides. Rooms are in all different configurations, so be sure... More

We truly enjoyed our stay at the Inn at Bay Harbor. Cathy the concierge was very helpful with dinner suggestions. She was very helpful in helping us lay out places to see in our 4 days there. Keith was our driver the first evening and Dan for the rest of our stay. Logan at the front desk was very friendly... More

Staff was very friendly and courteous and the hotel is well maintained exceptionally clean, I would definitely recommend this hotel to any one visiting the area as The view of Lake Michigan and being along the lake shore was an added bonus for us.

The staff at the desk when we arrived was very pleasant and helpful. The food in the restaurants is very good, however, the service in this area needs improvement. It takes way too long to place your order, and to receive your food. The other suggestion I have is in regard to the staff at the reservation desk. When one... More

We only live 2 hours from Petoskey but thought it would be fun to play tourist for a few days and see some fall colors. Staying at the Inn was a very nice experience...kind of like being surrounded by friends. Cathy at the front desk was so helpful in choosing which restaurants to go to and just making our stay...

I have been in Petoskey area many times and stayed at other hotels until this time. This hotel set it apart from others. It was our anniversary and this hotel made it really perfect in many ways. The romance package was wonderful especially with rose pedal turn down service. Breakfast was fantastic although food itself wasn't great. Overlooking the bay... More

We stayed here recently for a family member's 50th birthday. It was high end to the extreme. Beds were amazing, the entire room was set for comfort, fire place, popcorn set to be used in the microwave, keurig with a variety of coffees and teas, even hot cocoa. We had an amazing view of lake Michigan, the pool and hot... More

What a great experience. Have golfed at Bay Harbor several times which is amazing, but never stayed here. Being platinum member we received some perks, but no matter what this place is beautiful. Our room was very large with a beautiful view of the bay. Bed super comfortable. The whole feel of the resort was so peaceful and a great... More

Wonderful views of Lake Michigan but the interior and exterior of the hotel needed work. Room had a very comfortable bed and nice bath. The heating/ac fan was very noisy. Nice pub for after dinner drinks. Good breakfast buffet. Would not repeat or recommend.
