1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

We stayed one night for a relaxing getaway. Being a frequent traveler and light sleeper I typically ask for a room away from noises from vending machines and elevators which is what I did when booking the Days Inn of Petoskey. There were two front desk attendants while checking in, both were waiting on customers. After finishing up with one of the customers the one girl stood there for a couple of minutes before asking if I needed help. She checked me in and let me know I would be all the way down at the end of the upstairs hallway away from any vending machines.
We went to our room which was small, dated and next to the highway which is on a hill. I have stayed at a lot of hotels and B&B's and this was the worst experience I have had, the traffic noise seemed like I was in a tent next to the highway. We did not have to worry about anybody in the next room since I do not think the entire upstairs on the side we were was occupied. After a restless night of sleep from the road noise I awoke at 6am to a banging noise like a wooden screen door slamming every couple of minutes. When we went down for the free breakfast and I found that the noise I woke to was from the cafe door slamming shut whenever someone closed it. Although the hotel was not very busy the breakfast area was rather small and full when we arrived, the selections were very limited compaired to the free breakast at other hotels I have stayed. You cannot take anything out of the breakfast area so we left for a local resturant for breakfast rather than stand in the lobby and wait for a open table. I would never consider staying here again.

I'm sorry you didn't enjoy your stay. Your room had a beautiful view of the bay but was located over our lobby and closest to the road. It is our policy to move guests who are not comfortable with their room. We would have gladly moved you to another room. No hotel in the world offers a wider selection of food for a complementary breakfast. If you have any suggestions for adding to our breakfast offering please contact us and let us know. We have signs posted and we place trays near the café door encouraging guest to take their breakfast to their room when the café is crowded. We realize we can't please everyone but we do try to resolve issues when they're brought to our attention.

People were very polite from front desk to maintenance to housekeeping, etc. And I was very amazed that you could dine from 6 AM to 10 PM everyday. Wide variety of food to eat. The location was very nice and peaceful, view was very nice of the bay, animal friendly, excellent TV and the wifi was excellent. Casino was right down the road, grocery store, wal-mart, gas stations, every thing convenient.

Room Tip: Corner suites are large and sunny. :)

3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

This is a two star hotel so do not expect a 4 star. The room was very clean and served its purpose that we needed for one night- a bed to sleep on and a warm shower in the morning. The location is ok but you can't walk to downtown Petoskey which was a bit disappointing for us. They do offer a café with FREE food- serving snacks, breakfast, lunch and dinner. We did not want cafeteria style food and enjoyed dining at the nicer restaurants downtown so I can't say how the food was but there were a lot of people eating when we checked in and out. If you are looking for a clean room for a decent price this is it, but if you are looking for something nicer I would try a higher star rated hotel :-)

Stayed for one night, check in was quick, room on second floor had nice view of Little Traverse Bay. Close proximity to shopping and downtown. The cafe was decent but small and very crowded at breakfast. Room was neat and clean and place was quiet for being near full, had a good night's sleep. We will use this property again!

Decent location to downtown, or if you are just passing through.
They stuff the room with ammeneties.
A most impressive food spread available all day long. 2 walls full of counters and cabinets with a full selection. There is even a freezer with entrees and ice cream.
NIce beds.
