We have stayed here twice now and will stay here the next time we visit Frankfort. It is a short walk to the "downtown" area. Luann gave us plenty of suggestions of nearby activities. This is not a 5 star hotel...it is a comfortable, friendly place to stay.

My husband and and spent two nights at Bay Port Lodging in Frankfort on our Michigan road trip. LuAnn, the owner, was very accommodating when we requested an early check in. She even surprised us with a bottle of wine in our room to celebrate my husband's birthday. Our room was quaint and clean with a queen size bed, small... More

I've stayed here a few times now, and it's a charming little place, and the price is great, for how nice the town is in the summer. I like how each room is a bit different, and you feel like you're at home. Luann is really nice. I will be visiting again. Joe Traudt

My husband and I spent three nights for our 18th wedding anniversary. We were welcomed by LuAnn and the staff with a beautiful bouquet and special note, along with a bottle of wine! Those details mean so much. The room was spacious, clean, and comfortable. This is an older property that they have done a loving job of furnishing and... More

Thanks so much for your kind review. Sounds like the A/C was programmed to shut off when the desired temp was reached. There is another setting that would have kept it on consistently. Next time I can help you with that. Again, happy anniversary and best wishes! More

Bay Port lodging is a quaint locally owned motel, conveniently located a couple of blocks from downtown Frankfort. LuAnn (owner) and staff have consistently made every effort to make Bay Port Lodging an accommodating, clean, and inviting retreat. It's our home away from home when we visit beautiful Frankfort.

Very friendly owner, room was clean and very cute. Garden area was a plus. Sitting outside at a picnic table to visit with family was a treat what with the beautiful weather. Coming from NC it was a treat. Highly recommend.

Our company has sent our employees to Bay Port Lodging at least 6 times and the whole staff has done everything possible to accommodate us, especially on the very short notice that we gave them. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. It is literally two blocks away from the harbor and a very short walk to the downtown area.

The rooms at this motel have a unique touch and the different decor room to room is so not your typical motel. The owner is welcoming and interested in her guests comfort as is her staff. We were able to walk to town and the water front right from our room. The room was clean and well kept. Coffee and... More
