Great older motel. Our room was on the end next to the water.We had a king size bed with a big picture window in front of the bed. The window had a perfect view of the water. I loved that the room had the old paneling in it. It made it cozy with the window overlooking the water. The room... More

The location was very good just a little north of the downtown area, across the street from the lake, the rooms were clean and bright, parking was right in front of your room. The owners were very helpful in directing us to where to eat and what was going on at the time we where there.

This is my second time coming to Bay View and the visit was just as I remember from the first time. The owners are wonderful, the motel is neat, clean and reasonably priced. The view from the beach is my favorite and the night bonfire is a great time to meet new friends. Can't wait until the 2016 season to... More

My wife and I stayed here for just one night on our way to other destinations in the Upper Peninsula. I agree with many other reviews: the view of Lake Huron is gorgeous. The room itself was very basic but clean. The room and furniture seemed old. The bed was also old but pretty comfortable. The price of the room... More

Nothing fancy here, just your old school knotty pine walls, retro bath and two double beds. There is a fridge in the room. The t.v. remote may not always work, but who needs that when you are right on the shores of Lake Huron? Comfy, and quiet. Good place for dogs. I would return.

When we started staying there, Paula was the manager and we were treated as friends whenever we were there. Now Paula has left and Karen is there and we were happy dealing with her. Sat... More

This little place is like a step back in time. The rooms have a cabin feel and a I love the beach area. Management was awesome and very attentive to the needs of the occupants. We played horseshoes, volleyball and just relaxed lakeside. The beds were comfy, little refridge was perfect for drinks. The bathroom is small but perfect for... More
