So we stopped here on way up north to Mackinaw Bridge and what a pleasant experience! Great rooms with excellent wait staff! View was amazing even though lake was still froze over. Recommend this place any time of the year, and it is in a great location close to town.

Wonderful place to stay. Staff was friendly and helpful. Rooms were clean. Grounds were well maintained. No compliants at all. Located within a small shopping area. Easy access to downtown. Restaurant at the Inn was a little on the high price side, we did not eat dinner there.

Snuck in a few days here without the kids and had a blast. They treat us so well here and it just feels like home. Even in the middle of March when the weather is crappy the hotel was hopping. Rooms are spacious and comfy, service is excellent across the board. Spa is great and so are on-site dining venues.

We have been staying here at the start and finish of our annual ski week since the hotel first opened years ago. We have always enjoyed beautiful accommodations and a top-rate experience in terms of service until this visit. Physically, we noticed the last 2 years the condition of the rooms are really on the decline with worn furnishings, peeling... More

The Inn at Bay Harbor is the sort of place where you walk in the door and the extremely friendly and helpful front desk staff offer you freshly made cookies and hot chocolate. You head to your room where you turn on the gas fireplace, draw water for the jacuzzi tub, and then open the curtains to see the awesomely... More

My husband surprised me with a 3 day surprise trip and I could not have been more pleased! Even with the winter weather we so enjoyed the Inn and the Petoskey area! Our Master suite with a view of the Lake was perfect and the fireplace added just the right touch for a cozy long weekend. In face our suite... More

I usually stay here when doing business in Petoskey. The off season is affordable, but summer rates are quite high so summer stays are usually spent at the Hampton Inn. The staff is really friendly and they usually will know your name by heart. The food at the restaurant is very good and prices just a little above average. Breakfast... More

Staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. The food in the restaurants was pretty good too. Rooms were very nice and had everything we could have asked for. We had a question over a small charge on our final bill - the woman at the desk couldn't get an answer for us within the first 30 seconds, so she simply waived... More

If you've never had the pleasure of staying at this hotel during the summer months in Northern Michigan, you're just plain missing out. In fact, if you've never been up to Northern Michigan during the summer months, then you need to. This resort is perfect for a 3-5 day stay in Petoskey.

My husband and I have stayed here a few times but this past summer we were surprised to have notice a decline in the care of the property. Northern Michigan is absolutely beautiful and although this resort still sits on a beautiful piece of land however everything needs updating. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The rooms definitely need... More
