My wife and I stayed there recently while we were in town for a wedding. The bride and groom had several rooms blocked out, and we wanted to stay where other friends were staying. Our expectations were far exceeded. It smelled clean and the temperature and humidity were perfect. Breakfast was nice with the usuals like cereal, fruit, toast, bagels,... More

The hotel lost FOUR reservations, even though we all had printouts with confirmation numbers on them from their own website. Front desk receptionist was rude and offered no suggestions for another hotel, nor apologized for their mistake when shown the printout from their own website. Will never book rooms there again.

Weekend stay during tourist season with reasonable rates. Very quiet and clean rooms. Owner said they dropped the Days Inn, and went independent. Breakfast had eggs, waffles, French toast and was a nice fast breakfast. Didn't use the pool. Room was spacious, very clean and nice and quiet. Parking lot was very large and can accommodate cars with trailered boats.

Nice large, quiet, clean room with a comfortable king sized bed and a good nights rest at a reasonable price is what I experienced at the Bay Inn on July 26, 2014. My two brothers who "also" stayed there also agreed with me. We had no problem with a internet connection and the breakfast, while not huge, was adequate. Be... More

This was our third time staying here over the Fourth of July. This hotel is always clean. Employees, especially housekeeping are always friendly and accommodating. Continental breakfast is nothing fancy, but good. Employees are constantly overseeing breakfast area to make sure food choices are filled and not empty. There is no smell of smoking in the rooms. I love that... More

We spent the night here at Bay Inn on Thursday before starting our week as volunteer lighthouse keepers. The room was very clean and fresh. Beds were comfy and inviting. The pool room was a bit dark and the hot tub wasn't functioning right but that didn't stop us from taking a dip in each. The free breakfast was good... More

The room was clean but the bed was creaky and hard for me. People smoked outside so we could smell it in our room upstairs . The air conditioner and fan in the bathroom was noises. We could NOT get an Internet connection at all. The price was good but they had to shut the water off as the pool... More

If you travel with your pup this is one of the nicest places's to stay in Tawas, The pool is great and they don't charge u a arm and a leg to stay there. The complementary breakfast is also good with many selections to chose from.
