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.

I've stayed here several times and this is NOT your typical Marriott! Wow, what a view over Lake Michigan! Bay Harbor is a high end resort community catering to golfing and boating. The golf course is a once in a lifetime treat. But the Inn isn't far behind, especially the Spa. The restaurants are superb, the entertainment is great, and... More

I stayed at the Bay Harbor Inn for 3 nights during a business trip. The property is beautiful and well maintained and in a nice area of town. My room was a suite with a separate bedroom and livingroom as well as a small open kitchen. The living room had a gas fire place which I enjoyed in the evening... More

The property is beautiful but in need of some attention. I know I am paying for the location and view but a Marriott Renaissance should be better maintained. Simple fixes for the problems I encountered. Paint chipped on the walls of the suite and hallways by luggage and luggage carts could be fixed with just a dab of touch up... More

We stayed at the resort this past weekend in a king lake view suite. When we arrived at the hotel, the valet, check in and staff were very friendly and welcoming. The lobby is clean and fresh, however I cannot say the same about the guest suites. The rooms are dated and very poorly maintained. The guest room walls were... More

We spent just one night here during our Circle Tour of Lake Michigan, and had a very comfortable quiet room with a wonderful lake view balcony. The restaurant staff at breakfast were energetic and seemed to be enjoying their jobs and working together, it's nice to watch a successful team function.
