“Very nice and clean - but beds could be better”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2009

I stayed at this hotel with my husband and 2 friends during a snowboarding trip. The room was very nice, very clean and we enjoyed the pool and hottub nightly. You do have to walk outside to get to them which isn't too fun when it's 20 degrees out, but it's worth it once you get there. Continental breakfast in the morning is very good - bagels, donuts, hard boiled eggs, english muffins, oatmeal, cereal, waffles with syrup, OJ, milk.
I know a lot of people probably stay here during a skiing or snowboarding trip. You all know how sore you can be after a day full of those activities. The beds and pillows were HORRIBLE - none of us really slept well for the 3 nights and it doesn't help when your body is already aching.
Still, I would recommend this hotel to a friend because of its amenities and cleanliness.

As of the Fall of 2011, we have replaced all mattresses with new "pillowtop" mattresses. Our customer feedback has been very positive about them. They have been a nice addition.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2009

We stayed her for my mother-in-law's 55th high school reunion. It was very close to Petoskey and more reasonably priced than other area hotels. The pool and hot top were nice. Large hot tub. The pool is inside, but it ran on the cold side. The breakfast was good--waffles, boiled eggs, pastries, bagels, and cereal. The rooms were clean--a little dated, but nice. The rooms are all ground level and open to the parking lot. This was very handy with my mother-in-law who has a hard time with walking and stairs. It was also easy to bring in and out suitcases. Overall, I would return.

Seriously, this place is the best. I travel a lot for business and so far this is the best I have seen. Family atmosphere. Willing to go above and beyond to make sure you are happy. Indoor pool, hot tub, laundry, work out room, vending machines, and internet. I stayed in room 139 which had wired internet! base 100! Bring a LAN cable and good to go. They also have wireless, but who needs that when you can have wired and much faster. Very quiet in November, I am sure gets pretty busy in the summer and mid winter with the skiers. Just make sure when reserving that you ask for a room with internet. Don't give your self a headache save time and book here. I am glad I did.

2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2007

First of all, this hotel was very clean and the management was very friendly. It's newer, and well kept. No problems there. Our concerns were twofold. First of all, this hotel is not in Harbor Springs proper, and you still have about a four to five mile drive down the road to get into Harbor Springs - it's not within walking distance.

Our biggest concern was the noise factor. When they built this hotel, they did not insulate the walls very well. Our first night we were in a room which was an adjoining room with a door. We didn't know the family that stayed next to us. They had a small child, and we could hear every word of every conversation. And children tend to be loud, so it was pretty upsetting. We complained to management in the a.m., and they were very friendly and moved us to an end room. The sound factor was somewhat better without the adjoining door, but once again, in the a.m., we could hear the conversations of the people in the room next to us - an older couple. For that reason, and that reason alone, we would not opt to stay there again. We're big on peace and quiet and they simply didn't soundproof these rooms enough for our liking.

  • Disliked — Noise transmitted too easily
