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.

Indoor pool yay! Except the for the cloudy water ( can't see your feet in the "deep" end (5') and the chlorine was so strong it gave my girls a mild rash. Staff is not unfriendly but certainly not interested in making your trip enjoyable. Breakfast is lackluster even when compared to typical hotel continental breakfast. No fruit at all... More

We live in East Tawas but sometimes stay at the Bay Inn as a little getaway and so our kids can use their pool. The rooms are always nice and clean. The staff are all very friendly. The only complaint I have is that they use way too much chlorine in their pool. My childrens hair smells like chlorine for... More

My grandson had his 5th birthday, and wanted to swim with his friends, so we rented a meeting room they have and got to use the pool. We had about 25 people in the party, and the pool was only 15 feet from there. The place was clean, the staff was nice, even making sure we had enough towels. If... More
