The nice lady who checked me into the hotel the day I arrived, escorted me to my room and when we stepped inside, she said something to the effect of, "I just love this room, it's like stepping into a hug". She was right! It was a VERY comfortable room, complete with lots of pillows on the bed. One of... More

This place is a gem!! LuAnn couldn't have been more welcoming. Really clean, really comfortable, really homey feeling and so close to down town restaurants...she recommended walking which we did! Check out Stormcloud Brewery/Grille.

The hosts here are great, the rooms are all super cute and super clean. The location is convenient, you can easily go to many wonderful hiking trails in the sleeping bear park, great beaches near by, many wonderful small towns to travel to. We loved staying here, would definitely stay here again. Also, so many of the lodging choices in... More

We had a great experience here at Bay Port Lodging. My fiance and I stayed there over Labor Day weekend. I've been going up to Benzie county and one of my favorite things about it being up there is the "Up North atmosphere". There are bigger hotels, there's a Best Western somewhere around Benzie, but any of those will have... More

For some people the number 13 represents “bad luck”, but for my wife and I, it represents our favorite room to stay in at Bayport Lodging!!! Even though we only live 30 miles from Frankfort, we annually take a few days off to “just chill”, and what a great place to do it. We look forward to our to Bay... More

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.
