The location and view of the water really stand out to make this hotel a great place to stay. It was very comfortable and roomy. A nice kitchen area made it very convenient for our 3 day stay. The staff were very nice and welcoming. We loved the convenience of walking anywhere we wanted to go: downtown shopping or restaurants.... More

Stayed here for couple of nights over a weekend - great location! Right in town. Our room and bathroom were on a bigger size. Yes, it could be more ‘taken care of’ (like holes in the wall – from removing some shelving I guess). Mattress new but the very low-end quality – thin and not too comfy but in two... More

Nice hotel right on the water with views of the boats going by. Our room was #43 with 2 large windows facing the water, which was nice to open the windows and watch the boats go by. Room was recently re-done and was very modern for a hotel so old. Brick hallway to the room was a nice touch. We... More

Perfect location right on the river. Well appointed older property. Staff friendly and helpful. Downside is that we paid extra for a room with a "small balcony" and it was just that. Unfortunately, it really was too small to even really use. So small, the chairs had to face each other and couldn't even face out towards the river. Our... More

I read a lot of other reviews before booking this hotel. The main reason we stayed here was because of the location right on the harbor with the beautiful sailboats docked behind and small quaint shopping areas on all other sides. Apparently it can get quite loud at times due to bars and I could not get much help with... More

Excellent choice on the harbor. Our room opened to the boardwalk and we spent many of our evenings watching the boats go by in the harbor. Admiral Jack's restaurant barge was below our room and we enjoyed the music and the food. We were warned that the music could become loud, but it didn't seem to be a problem. We... More

We stayed here again to visit friends in a nearby town, two nights this time, and we won't stay here again. They have recently remodeled our room, room 34, don't accept this room. we had a nice stay the first time but not this time. The room looked nice but it is not a good place to stay. They have...

Hotel was clean and fully adequate. As other reviews state, price might make one expect luxury accommodations. Rate is reflective of waterfront at Michigan beachtowns. The key to this hotel is the charm of the different rooms and the location. Walk to restaurants and bars. Parking can be tricky but rarely impossible. We loved sitting on our private balcony (plenty... More

We have stayed many times & seasons. Summer is peak but winter can be fun too. Rooms have jacuzzi tub, fireplaces and views of the river lot's of different choices. Indoor pool but we like the beach in summer, walking distance as with most everything you'll want to do here. Shops, restaurants, wine tasting, live music lighthouse all on the... More

Service at this hotel was excellent from reservation to check-out. We went with friends and shared a two room suite. We had plenty of room with a kitchen, living room and two bathrooms. It was nicely furnished. We had a great view of the harbor and really enjoyed sitting on the small deck watching the boats go by. I know... More
