We stayed in one of the two bedroom cottages at over $800 per night. The master bedroom is tiny, with a uncomfortably hard bed and cheap pillows. The construction quality isn't great as we could here toilets flush, footsteps and even the morning alarm clock in the unit above us. The walls are thin too and we could hear our... More

The Renaissance in Petoskey is not just a hotel, this is a full service resort with upscale amenities. The rooms are modern and very nicely furnished, if you have a lakeside room the view is amazing. When you pull up there are people there to greet you and help with luggage and valet your car if you wish. At night... More

We stayed here in July 2015 for two days. We really enjoyed the stay. The room was very clean, comfortable and had a great balcony to view beautiful Lake Michigan. Ours had a cute fireplace which we did use with the air condition on :) There was also a kitchenette, microwave, and refrigerator, Kuerig with coffee, tea, and hot chocolate... More

Overall I am giving this property an Excellent rating as no other property in this area comes close to it. The setting is breathtaking. The views are awesome. One of the nicest hotels I have ever stayed at. Now how can you screw up such a great place? Easy, just hire people that don't care. The hotel's siding needs to... More

We stayed at the Inn at Bay Harbor for a week in August and had the most wonderful and relaxing experience ever. The room was beautiful with its own private balcony with a panoramic view of the bay. From our room we could see the central lawn that was always active with lawn bowling games and chess matches, the pool,... More

I had a meeting here in July 2015 and got to bring the family along for the ride. We arrived and checked into one wonderful room with a nice balcony. We had a separate room for the boys with a pull down bed, full kitchen, and a nice bathroom. They had a nice touch of putting a bag of popcorn... More

We had a great time at this hotel. The staff was very attentive and everything you could possibly want within your fingertips. We loved the pool, hearing Lake Michigan from our room and the close proximity to Petoskey. Try to get to the breakfast buffet early. We highly recommend the omelet station and lox for bagels. It's a spectacular place... More

They converted their bar to a Chop House,the transformation works. The new restaurant is superb, the service, food and price is excellent. We have tried multiple entre's and they are all good. If you are in the Petoskey area this is a great choice.

We stayed at the Inn at Bay Harbor for two nights in August to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The entire hotel staff that we encountered were very pleasant. The room (a king-bed suite) was impressively large and bright with lots of windows and a decent-sized balcony with nice rocking chairs. The breakfast buffet was magnificent--the food items were typical, but... More

Built as part of a community of high end vacation homes and a marina on the shores of Lake Michigan, the Inn at Bay Harbor has always been a destination hotel for those seeking the beauty and tranquility of northern Michigan. Managed by Marriott and owned by Boyne properties, the Inn has become a shadow of its former self. Could... More
