The room was crap but the view was nice. You can't exactly use the beach for swimming unless you walk a ways. We ended up staying on the island our second night and when we came back in the morning we noticed housekeeping had been there. They cleaned up a little and made the bed and my boyfriend has noticed... More

I'm sorry to hear you didn't have a better visit, Lisa. We would never want to touch your personal property, so we tidy up the rooms while you stay, but then do a full cleaning before the next guest checks in. I can assure you that all items left would be taken care of by our crew right away. That... More

This hotel is diectly on lake huron, and reasonably priced. The staff is very friendly. Go with no expectations and you will be satisfied. I would stay here again. This is a good substitute for the over priced hotels on Mackinac island. You can take a day trip to the island and save a bundle

Right on the shores of Lake Huron we woke to a beautiful sunrise. The hotel room was adequate and comfortable. Nothing spectacular. Breakfast wasn't great but there was juice, toast, bagels and yogurt. We were doing a tour of the Great Lakes so it was a convenient jump off to see. Mackinaw island and the price was right.

I mainly chose this property, for it's lakefront access. The view was very nice, even had a stranded freighter for awhile. And the sunrise was beautiful. All the seagulls weren't really a bother, the rubber dogs were a bit freaky and the beach is not a beach. The play set for kids was nice, even had some sand to play... More

Thanks for making us a part of your trip, Sheri! It sounds like you came by during a fun event -- it's always nice to see the different tractors, right? Also, I appreciate your feedback about some of the outdoor landscaping and awnings. I can certainly mention something to our crew about your comments. That said, I hope the rest... More

The price was great and the people were wonderful! Very Friendly! The room was perfect for what we wanted. We were just staying a two days and we wanted a view of the lake. Clean and comfortable. The breakfast was adequate, more than just donuts and coffee. The only drawback was the town! There are not a lot of places... More

The price is reasonable, all rooms have balcony or walk out and water, island views. Our room was clean and had a refrig and microwave. They take govt., AAA, and senior rates. We go up north once or twice a year and stay here after a long days drive on the way up and back. I don't understand the complaints... More

All rooms look out on Lake Huron in this 3-story hotel. The view towards the lake and Mackinac Island is absolutely gorgeous. We had a king size room with a balcony. The room was clean but a bit dated. We spent four nights there and ate the complimentary breakfast each day. While the menu never varied, I was impressed by... More

We stayed in the standard 2 queen room. It was very spacious. Every room has a view of Lake Huron and Mackinac Island. we stayed on the third floor.

I spent 3 nights here during the Mackinac Bridge Antique Tractor Crossing. The room was comfortable, spacious and clean. The staff is excellent: very accommodating to my 3 nights of tour bus parking need. The breakfasts were filling. Nice hotel; I will be back here in about a month on another trip and hope to stay here again.

The Bavarian Haus Lakefront Inn offered and delivered a lovely stay. Very nice staff, a great room (all with balconies overlooking Lake Huron) and close proximity to the ferry rides to Mackinac Island made it a special place. Loved the breakfast in the a.m. as well. Some nice additional amenities included the spacious green grounds on the lakeside and the... More
