My family and I stayed here for three nights. We had 2 rooms, they had beautiful views of Lake Huron. I loved our private balcony and watched the sunrise every morning. The children loved the splash park it was perfect for their age. The front desk was so helpful, they told us about a great Italian restaurant, Nona Lisa's. Heather... More

As I'm reading reviews, I can't believe this is the same Fairview. My family and I stayed for five nights and were very pleased. Krissy and Heather at the front desk were very friendly ! The hotel is very clean and taken care of very nicely. Breakfast was great every morning, eggs and waffles were filling. This seemed to be... More

I was shocked and appalled by the sarcasm and inflammatory manner of a front desk representative by the name of Terry. He claimed that the general manager's name was "a secret", refused to share information so that I could express a concern to them, kept referring me out to a customer service third-party Hotline, multiple times in the conversation when...

First got there the staff was not very friendly, except the man. They upgraded us to a suite on the beach. There was a cigarette butt on the floor of the bathroom, the jucuzzi nor bathtub wasn't clean, both had hair and grim. Had a wet floor and dehumidifier that wasn't being watched. We had to empty it twice. Did... More

The room was weirdly situated and not very private. Also, we had to go to the neighboring hotel to use laundry facilities and for breakfast the following morning. The room felt a little dirty, and it is a little farther from the restaurants and shopping. The redeeming factor of this hotel was access to the beachfront and it is close... More

I only booked this hotel because I got such cheap rates with my flight. Never again! You get what you pay for! As soon as we saw the location of the rooms we asked for an upgrade to rooms on the beach. We were given those at no extra charge, but we had to move back to the other room... More

Checked in hotel not busy. Nice room very clean only issue was fridge needed defrosting and bed rock hard. Otherwise friendly clerk and wonderful view. Was scared to stay when I read reviews. I think the bad ratings stayed in older part of building. But who knows.

I was hesitant to stay after reading some other reviews, but was very pleased with our stay. The staff were all friendly and helpful. Our rooms were clean and what we reserved. In fact, one was upgraded to the corner suite. The kids loved the water park and we loved the huge hot tub. We would stay again. Great value.

Old smelly room, non friendly host at desk, no towels at pool or water park, not enough parking for guest, beach front was not clean just not a place to stay if you want a nice room, if you just want to sleep beds felt like they should of been put in the trash
