Very cool aesthetic and the staff were great. The bed was comfortable but the pillows were quite flimsy. It is an older hotel that has been remodeled nicely but the walls were very thin. Unfortunately we had an adjoining room next to us so that did not help the noise level at all. It was very clean but the floor tile in the shower had not been maintained well. We would definitely consider staying again but would request the top floor in a non-adjoining room for sure.

Room Tip: Limited parking in the hotel lot. If the hotel is full, I can see parking being an issue.

Our family has been going to Charlevoix every summer for nearly 90 years so we're pretty familiar with the area. We've only needed to utilize lodging accommodations a few times. We've spent several nights in a bed & breakfast and we've stayed in a couple of other hotels. None have measured up to The Earl. The warm, cozy feel of the lobby with its large fireplace was incredibly welcoming. The staff was equally welcoming. Our room was large and comfortable. The bed was excellent with wonderfully crisp sheets. There was a very creative gift on the bed when we arrived: a S'Mores Kit! After getting settled, we headed downstairs to get a drink at the bar to enjoy by the fire. Unfortunately, there had not been enough of a check in crowd to warrant opening the bar. While disappointed, the front desk clerk gave us a couple of Diet Cokes. Our room looked out onto Bridge Street with all of its Christmas lights up. Breakfast was a light continental affair but everything was good and fresh. They also had a European style coffee machine that offered cappuccinos, espressos and americanos. As a bit of background, the hotel's namesake is Earl Young, a very famous Charlevoix architect, famous for his "mushroom houses". If you have the time, tours are available and well worth it. All in all our stay was excellent. When we need to have a room in Charlevoix again, we will certainly stay at The Earl. Thanks for the hospitality!

I was attending a wedding at Castle Farms and this was the hotel most wedding guests and some of the bridal party stayed at. I was shocked at the price, but there aren't a ton of options in the area and it looked like a really nice hotel. I only planned to stay two nights, one night before the wedding and then the wedding night, but I received an email with a discounted rate to stay on Memorial Day so I ended up adding the extra night. The hotel is very nice and the rooftop bar is cool, but it had just opened for the season and it was hard to find a seat. The pool and hot tub area are also small, but both are nice. The location is fantastic to be able to walk around Charlevoix and it's close to the beach, but the parking lot is very small so you will likely have to park on a side street. The room I had was very attractive with a cute little patio and the bed was comfortable. Given the high cost to stay here I think it would be nice if they could provide more than a continental breakfast. If I were to visit the area again I would look at staying here, but I would also explore some options to see if there are rentals that would be cheaper.

Extremely overpriced, terrible service, paper thin walls/ceiling. Don't expect to get any sleep unless you're on the 3rd floor. We were there two nights and it was just one issue after another at this hotel, which piled up to a horrible experience. For the price we paid, I expected a higher end hotel & much better service. I highly recommend staying elsewhere!

The room was lovely and clean. Nice amenities. I enjoyed the rooftop bar with live music. Service was very good. Bar food offerings were also tasty. Pretty pricey room for Charlevoix. I received a text message when I checked in telling me there was a complimentary continental breakfast and espresso bar for guests. However, when I got my bill there was a $25 amenity fee tacked on. The clerk told me it was to cover costs of the breakfast, espresso bar, pool, etc. So basically the breakfast was NOT free. Sounds like false advertising to me.

The studio we stayed in for two nights was very nice, lots of space the bed was very comfortable and we loved the balcony. Our grandson had a blast in the pool. We stayed twice at The Earl in July we came back and stayed just one night so that we could enjoy the roof top entertainment The Hazel James Band. All the staff are very friendly and we would recommend the Earl Hotel to everyone we know. Cheers Gary and Bobbie

We were in town for one night and decided to stay at The Earl. It’s a fantastic hotel. Cool decor, comfy rooms, exceptional staff and the coziest lobby bar! Good drinks and snacks. They have an incredible roof top bar which would be so much fun in the summer so we will be back. Highly recommend!!

Very nice. One complaint. Who picked out the artwork in room 308? If my 4 year old grandson came up with the one in the bedroom I would tell him that I think he could do better. Somebody rented the room next to us to a family with about 6 babies who couldn't even ealk yet so pool and hot tub were impossible to use. Oh well. We'll be back another time hopefully without that

I would like to know who paid off planning commission when it came to approval of this hotel. Minimal on-site parking. Third floor added. 20-25 car lot? Some Ecar slots. Parked 10 cars down on side street, fell in the snow/street. According to employee side Street cars get ticketed. Stay elsewhere.

We deeply apologize for your poor experience during your stay. I understand your frustrations with parking, ownership was very passionate about preserving the original architecture and details the original architect utilized throughout the original construction. In doing so this limited our parking so we added street parking. Unfortunately the night you stayed with us there was a miscommunication with what side of the street guests needed to park on due to the new snow ordinance with the city. We collected all the parking tickets we were able to and paid them. If we somehow missed yours we are very sorry and we would be happy to get that taken care of. We have implemented a new procedure with our staff to ensure this will never happen again. We strive to improve our service to better guest experiences and hope to be able to host you again in the future with a better overall experience.
