The hotel was delightful, beautiful, and accomodating. The balcony views are breathtaking as you take in the lifesize chess/checkers grass board, while others play croquet on the lawn directly in front of the pristine Lake Michigan beach. You simply can't go wrong when you dine at Vintage Chop House, their steaks take you to heaven. The Inn offers shuttle service... More

This hotel is Tired..... I was last to this properrty 6 years ago. I remember it being a spectacular place. It was clearly built to be high end however I am not sure if it was ahead or behind it's time. Over time they have let it slip away... I don't believe they have pained the elevator since it opened,... More

My family has been staying here since the Inn opened in the late 90's. It was originally conceived as a luxury property--and it was. Rooms and suites decorated like a magical cottage with upscale everything--linens, towels and toiletries. Marriott scooped up the property in the mid-2000's and has been systematically downgrading the experience ever since. They've now turned the once... More

Thank you for taking your time to share your feedback with us. I apologize for the disappointment you experienced. This is not a typical Inn at Bay Harbor experience we hear about from most guests. While previously part of the Renaissance brand we were regularly at the top levels of the guest satisfaction scores determined by guests. Now, as part... More

These Condominium Hotel rooms are owned individually and a few owned by Boyne USA. Several condominiums are up for sale and are in the rental program. I have looked into this for an investment which sounds promising. Returning in a few months to look at a few more condominiums. Beautiful grounds. Great staff.

We rented a cottage adjacent to the hotel. It was a little tight for space, but included the hotel amenities. A slice of heaven , the beautiful weather helped. This is an upscale destination, and you will pay accordingly

This was an absolutely beautiful hotel...inside and out. It knocked the breath out of us when we drove up, and then the views continued that experience for us! The cleanliness and attention to customer care are exactly what you would expect from a Renaissance Hotel. Would absolutely stay here again!

My Dad's stay was "FANTABULOUS!!" as he said. There were no complaints! Beautiful property! Great employees! Allison (Alison, Alyson, etc.) was very helpful, over the phone, during the booking process, and I would definitely like to personally visit this property! Keep up the good work, my Dad was impressed!

Three couples and a single rented a 5th floor suite overlooking the property and Lake Michigan. Views and sunsets simply fantastic. The staff is incredibly helpful and friendly. Suite itself was well appointed. Two bedrooms were located in the front part of the suite off of the living room and facing the lake. Other two were across the hall with... More

I don't know if it would matter what this hotel actually looked like considering its amazing location on the banks of Lake Michigan. This was our first trip to Northern Michigan and our stay at Inn at Bay Harbor was one of the highlights. Gorgeous grounds, amazing in-room dining options and wonderful staff will make your stay memorable. Some parts... More

We stayed 2 nights. Got a last minute reservation. Not cheap but it is a nice place. Rooms are decent. Basically timeshare units that rent out when they are not occupied. Full kitchens and fireplaces in each room. Free Wi-Fi, valet parking and washer and dryer. Nice work out room. Great staff. Very helpful providing us with local transportation, umbrellas... More
