I had a most enjoyable weeklong stay this December at the beautiful Tawas, MI, Bay Inn! The hotel was delightfully clean and very well managed. The accommodations and amenities were comfortable and more than adequate. I enjoyed a wide variety of breakfast items, fruits, coffee and juice to choose from - with each morning rise. I found both, the hot... More

The staff was very friendly and accommodating. Breakfast is fairly bland, but about what you might expect for a continental breakfast. Room was quiet but the AC had a hard time cooling the room, leaving it hotter than we would like. Bed was comfortable, pillows leaved something to be desired. Room was clean and well set up. Towels were pretty... More

We stayed here overnight because it had a pool. The pool and hot tub were both dirty. The hot tub had a film over the entire seats and walls that was a shade of red. Looked to be a mold. Pool was also cloudy and dark. Wall shower area needed a serious rust and calcium deposit removal. Rooms were adequate.... More

My room was very spacious and comfortable - the A/C unit and fan in the bathroom were both a bit loud, but that is my only complaint about the room. The hallways and staircases weren't vacuumed once while I was there (7 days) so that wasn't so nice, but everything else was wonderful. The beds were nice and the linens... More

i made a reservation, months in advance. was for three people and asked for a cot. they assured me there would be one. Imagine my surprise when we entered the room and no cot. I was then informed they don't have ANY cots...and that the person who took my reservation never said they had any, which would make me a... More

We booked a one night stay and arrived at the hotel at 12:00 noon and was rudely greeted and told they don't start check in's until 4:00 . So for a little over three hours we explored Tawas. As we have already vacationed in Tawas before we really were basically killing time until check in . When we returned to... More

Stayed here for 4 nights in mid August. Would rate as above average and loved the fact that the place was clean. It was hot while we stayed and the air conditioning was a bit weak at times and would sometimes shut off. The wifi had too much interference from other area hotels to work properly. Other than that, everything... More

We stayed here for four nights with two adults, two little kids and a dog. We chose this hotel because it was the only place we could find in Tawas that allowed dogs, and because it had an indoor pool. Their dog policy: small daily fee, no "dangerous" breeds. Fair enough. The hotel is south of the main area of... More

Very basic hotel. Clean. Nothing out of the ordinary good and nothing out of the ordinary bad. If you are on a road trip and need an immediate place to stay, this would be a choice. It is not waterfront if you are wondering.

This hotel was very reasonably priced . We were only in town overnight to visit relatives. One great benefit was we were able to bring our dog which was a wonderful plus. Our son, daughter-in-law, and granddaughters were also staying in the next room. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Would definitely stay again.
