Room not ready when we arrived, with an unprepared intern at the desk to manage the situation. Once I got to a manager, Olivia provided coverage for a meal for us, that was nice, but service was terrible all weekend long at the restaurants which really spoiled the stay.

Wonderful hotel with a great staff. Worth every penny. Lettie at front desk is excellent and will do all she can to insure a guest is happy. Concierge (forgot name) worked so hard to get me the dinner res at opening night at Seventeen restaurant and tracked me down to make sure I knew it was set. Suzanne in housekeeping... More

This hotel was probably the best hotel we have ever stayed in! The hotel employees were the friendliest group that I have ever seen. Every time you would enter the front door or get off of the elevator, they would greet you in such a friendly way. We stayed with another couple on the fifth floor in the Presidential Suite.... More

We arrived on Monday, June 23, 2014 and were greeted by great hotel employees. We have never stayed there and were looking forward to having a wonderful experience. The room we first entered had a Murphy bed, something we were not anticipating for $300.00. When I spoke to the hotel clerk she upgraded us to a beautiful king room with... More

My wife and I recently stayed at the Inn at Bay Harbor in Petoskey, Michigan. It was our first visit and it won't be our last. In fact, we were so impressed that we are considering moving our annual management retreat to this hotel from Mackinac Island. The accommodations were absolutely outstanding, the food was great but the service really... More

We left, and are in a lovely room at the bay view inn, 5 miles down the road. What first class hotel does not have a fancy suite available at 6 pm??? They did not even give us a potential check in time. We even spent another anniversary there!

Gorgeous hotel by the water! Free self parking, free wireless Internet. We had a breakfast package and received breakfast buffet each day as well - it's a fantastic buffet with sausage, bacon, omelet station, make-your-own waffles in 4 flavors, pastries, potatoes, fresh fruit, and more. The grounds are beautiful by the water! You can rock in a chair on the... More

We stayed at the Inn at Bay Harbor for 3 nights the first week in June and absolutely loved this place. We had a lake view room and the view of Lake Michigan was simply beautiful. Our room had a walk out patio on the ground floor with Adirondack chairs and table where we enjoyed our morning coffee overlooking the... More

This hotel is tops in every way. Rooms are comfy and quiet. Bar has the most beautiful sunset view ever. Bike trail right outside going up to Harbor Springs (13 miles) or south to Charlevoix, about the same distance. Golfed Crooked Tree, simply beautiful.

This hotel is on one of the most scenic spots in Michigan. The grounds are lovely. The staff upgraded me to a lakefront room. The view was breathtaking. The room however was a bit dingy and I would say it was shabby chic, but I don't think that was a good look for the resort. Please Marriott, update this place... More
