Friendly, helpful staff and very clean rooms updated with new carpets and beds. The rates were very reasonable for the Tawas area. The pool and continental breakfast perks from the Bay Inn was a nice surprise! It was a great value and will definitely be back!

The room was very clean. Nothing fancy, but very nice!! Only complaint was the cable was not good. The TV was very fuzzy. And breakfast is included!! An indoor pool at the main hotel next door. And very good price. $66 total. I Would recommend staying here and will probably go back next year.

We had a corner room with a kitchenette which was nice because the other rooms don't have the refrigerator and microwave.

My husband stayed here for business after being told Bay Inn had no rooms available. After staying 3 nights I came up to join him the 4th day. Noticing the room smelled very musty, he was coughing and developed a upper respiratory infection with a 102.5 fever. We checked out the following morning, I also starting to cough. After seeing...

I will never set foot in this place again. Check-in day pet hair on the floor and the bottom of blankets. Bedding had dirt in between the sheets. When I went to the office I was given clean bedding to change the beds myself. There was paint coming off the walls and the furniture had holes. On the third night,... More

Bay Inn is nice, Crows Nest Inn is horrible! Found multiple pieces of candy, popcorn, and pumpkin seeds on the floor, moldy baby bottle under the bed, and dead bed bugs in the cabnets. We moved the bed to check for more bed bugs, and found multiple dead bed bugs on the box spring, and its stained black. Blood stained... More
