VERY INCONSIDERATE manager and staff. No tv for 2 days, didnt offer discount, nothing. Oh, and the pool was full, of Locals, who get to swim for 3 dollars a person. Even on weekends. Rude to the GUEST PAYING 100+ TO USE ALL OF HOTELS FACILITIES. NO POOL, NO TV, DIRTY BREAKfast BAR. I would never return to this uncaring... More

This hotel is very outdated. The breakfast area was not very clean and there were multiple flies. The food itself was disgusting. It really is a shame, because the surrounding area is beautiful. Tawas City is a must see..... Just drive by this hotel!

This room was clean and fresh smelling, as was the entire hotel. The pool and hottub area were immaculate, the continental breakfast was adequate and the staff were very friendly. I would stay there again. Only average because the beds were subpar and we woke up aching. Loved taking my dog on his first hotel trip!

Bay Inn was very quiet and super clean. Our room was clean and fresh when we walked in. Actually looked like it was brand new. Beds were really comforable and turned down for our arrival. We got a great rate off orbitz (didn't try calling for one). We relaxed by the pool after a day driving around looking at Michigans... More

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
