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.

I've lived in Michigan most of my life and I can't believe how long it took me to discover this wonderful area just a few hours away. I've never spent more than a day or two in Northern Michigan but we just returned from a week at this beautiful resort and can't wait to plan our next stay. There was... More

This is a great hotel with lots of sporting activities as well as good dining. I used my Marriott points and felt it was a solid value. It is a modern Victorian Style hotel with contemporary look. Service was OK, except that the concierge really did not know the area well. The Front Desk staff were very helpful and accommodating.... More

We spent Labor Day weekend at Bay Harbor and the space is nicely landscaped with well thought out seating. The pool area is adjoined by a nice bar and there's a fire pit overlooking the lake surrounded by adirondack chairs where they make smores in the evening. The problem is that at noon the following day the area was still... More

Not sure why I see reviews about it being outdated and not very nice. This place is very nice and though some updating could be done, it still has a very nice resort/cottage feel. Many rooms face the water and the back area is very comfortable for eating, playing, etc. Great place...

When we arrived our room was not ready, even though the hotel was expecting us at 2pm for early check in. We waited at the outdoor bar for 1 hour and 45 min until the room was ready. The cabana style bar was dirty, and the 5 staff members were too busy watching tv to do anything else. When we... More

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
