Friendly staff, nice room, lovely view. Plan on eating out as the breakfast is not worth the wait or calorie intake. Mainly low quality, cheap bread items....donuts, danish, plain white bagel, white bread, waffles, cereal, biscuits 'n gravy.

On a motorcycle trip to northern Wi .Staff was great getting us to our room and letting us know about the area. Would come back again. Everything we did was in walking distance. Did the museum and saw some great boats in the harbor. Great check out , fast everyone was great.

Hotel is right on the harbor and bicycle path near downtown. There isn't a beach here. It is NE near the marina about 3 blocks. Very nice hotel, grounds well maintained, can sit outside and read a book while watching the sun on the Lake. If you have any questions about the area, make them specific to get a good... More

Nice clean quiet rooms with a nice view of Lake Michigan. Very nice facility. Staff was short handed at check in with one person at the desk answering the phone and trying to check in customers. We had to wait over 20 minutes. At breakfast it was the same. Not enough help to handle the volume of customers. All the... More

My wife and I spent 2 nights here in a King room. The room was very large and very clean, with a partial view of the lake. The Lake Michigan ferry "Badger" docks right in front of the hotel, which is cool.The pool is excellent, one of the largest and cleanest I've been in for a while, especially at a... More

First off, I recommend based on lake view and Manitowoc area. Nice area to spend a few days with the family and we enjoyed walking around the harbor area. The neighboring submarine museum is good for a few hours, and there are plenty of local restaurants within walking distance. Most of the rooms are angled with a view of the... More

We have loved this hotel and have stayed many times but for the price...$220 per night, which I would pay, the quality has gone down alot. Don't go in the bar, they clearly do not want the business. And go somewhere else for breakfast.

This hotel is a hidden treasure. This was our second stay with our two grandsons. As for location, it's in town, on the water. If it's raining, can go to the Manitowoc Library and Maritime Museum, within 1-2 blocks. Great breakfast for Mom, Dad and Grandparents and kids! Features a beautiful indoor pool. We definitely will return again. Keep up... More

We checked in on a Tuesday afternoon, and were immediately informed that the King mini suite we booked was unavailable, and we now had a double queen. We were told that the rate had been adjusted accordingly, and as a bonus, we had been "upgraded" to a lake view. I was a wee bit confused, as the very ample parking... More
