Boyne Mountain Resort
Ranked #1 of 4 Hotels in Boyne Falls
Reviewed July 23, 2012

We stayed 4 nights and had plenty to do. There are various activities that are free on the property, like making s'mores, the chair lift and movie night. The waterpark was the favorite of the kids. We didn't try the zipline, but many people were and it looked like a lot of fun. We took a day trip to little traverse bay, which I highly recommend doing.
There a couple of little shops in "the village", on the the property and a gift shop in the main lodge. The only thing I thought was weird is that the shops all close by 9pm and all activities are over... Even on Friday and Saturday night. After the waterpark we thought we would browse the gift shop or go to the game room... Nope! All closed. The outdoor pool is open til 11, so that's all there is do after 9.

Annually I visit a Northern Michigan resort for an organizational meeting. Boyne had the best service of any of the properties. Although the property was older the rooms had modern fixtures and great mattresses and bedding.

The families attending our event were thrilled with the opportunity for youth and child recreation. The food at all venues was superb including a quick sandwich from the convenience store.

Two complaints
They have installed "green" light bulbs that barely illuminate the room, I would have hated to visit in winter and not had the advantage of the long daylight of July to light my room.

Second the golf course had difficulty handling the midday post meeting crunch of volume. But the staff was polite and hardd working.

I would highly recommend this as a family destination

My sister, her son, my grandson & I spent one night at the resort- we were meeting other family members and she got us our room with points from her time share. We thought it was great! We were a little surprised about the stairs not being painted or varnished but she explained that was because of the skiers in the winter. We spent the day at Avalanche Bay, had dinner at the Beach House Restaurant and then strolled around the resort for a bit in the evening. We didnt' have time to do any of the other free activities but there seemed to be alot to do. We totally enjoyed our time there and have no complaints.

We booked a King Suite in the Grand Lodge July 15 - 18th. Check in good, asked to change rooms but when we got to the new room it was not made up so took the original room. The "suite" had a second floor bedroom and bathroom - no windows at all, which I found strange, but at least dark for sleeping. Room was very dated and needed a good cleaning - cobwebs on lights - lots of piled dust on the light switches and floor boards, bird droppings on the balcony area. Sofa on main floor could use a good cleaning as well. King bed very comfortable for sleeping. No in room safe so no where secure to leave your valuables when not in the room.

Lots to do for families with the waterpark, pools, zip lining, biking etc. Deer Lake was nice as well for a beach option. Next time I think we would book the zip lining adventure as anyone we talked to that did this loved it. We golfed 3 courses in the area - fabulous golfing. Really liked Monument course as you start at the top of Boyne Mountain - great views. No GPS or maps of the course, but we managed to not get lost and enjoyed the course.

Used the pool a couple of times - not a problem getting a lounge chair and towels are provided for pool use. The pool temperature was quite warm so not as refreshing on a hot day, but still nice.

Great shuttle service to the Odawa Casino in Petoskey - Would definitly us this again.

We are staying in the Clock Tower for one night. For $183.00+ tax, I'm amazed at how outdated & shabby the room is. On the upside they were very accommodating with a late checkout. Last time we were here, we stayed in another building that was not the main lodge & also a a throwback to the 70's.

We stayed here at the beginning of July 2012 for two nights. The resort was nice and waterpark great for our kids.

Our room was the lowest price one we could book for our family of 4 and was located in the clock tower building. The room was a bit dirty and worn down. Plus it (room 209) was located right next to a pub which was thankfully not open during our stay. The air conditioning wouldn't lower the temperature below 80 degrees except at night.

Also had a issue trying to get seated at the only family like restaurant they had open at the time due to lack of workers. The other two were pubs and not good for kids. We finally got seated after asking the front desk for take out options in the area.

The staff were mostly all friendly at the resort. Overall a nice place. Possibly rooms are better in main building. The resort might not be managed well based on our experience though.

I would think twice about staying in the cheaper rooms again, but would definitely take kids to water park if I was in the area.

The property may once have been a resort but it does not deserve such a designation.
General upkeep is poor, hallways are dirty and it needs at least one coat of pain almost everywhere. TV's are from the 70's and cable is strung on the floor near the window. Hazzard.

Room Tip: If your are not in the main building, go elsewhere
