“Check and Double Check”
Reviewed August 15, 2009

The location in Charlevoix is wonderful close to downtown, Stafford's Weathervane Restaurant (not same ownership,) channel, beach, and marina. I think the value can be very good if you insist on one of the remodeled rooms. Some of the older rooms, while clean, are worn, raggedy and very dated.

The free breakfast is very basic: bagels, english muffins, bananas, coffee, juice, cereal and milk, and instant oatmeal.

The pool is just okay. It is small and the deck area is small, also. The pool towels are worn.

My advice is find out which room you are in, ask for an updated room in the far building, and if you don't like your room ask to be moved.

Had not been to Weathervane in a while and loved the changes, new beds, updated bathrooms with granite and tile. Loved the changes and the friendliness of the staff. We had a great time !

My husband and I stayed at the Weathervane for the first time last week. Our room was huge and very clean. We had a nice balcony on which we could drink our in-room coffee. The continental breakfast was served in a pleasant room with plenty of fresh choices to eat. We have been going "up north" for nearly 30 summers and usually stay in Petoskey when not staying with relatives. From now on it will be the Weathervane for us.

We did a quick overnight here early August staying in a Lake Michigan Suite ( has elevator access). We have stayed here several times and like the convenience to the town as well as the beach and pier. Staff is always exceptionally friendly and helpful and while our room had a few things that needed attention, it was clean and comfortable. A suggestion would be to add a few more things to the breakfast bar....maybe hard boiled eggs and a waffle maker. We'll be back this fall!

This was our first time at the Weatervane, and it will be out last. Our building did not have an elevator, and the closest set of stairs to our second floor room were circular and located in a turret! Needless to say, it was very difficult navigating our way up the narraow passage while toting luggage and various travel items. The turret itself was very dirty with lots of dead bugs and spider webs. The hotel would do well to take a broom to this area on a daily basis. The only ice machine was located in the main hotel building, which neccesitated additional trips down and up the dirty staircase, followed by a trek accross the parking lot to the breakfast room. Once there, we were never sure if the dispensed ice would be whole or partially melted. The hotel does not have enough parking spaces for the number of rooms it rents. Consequently, we were forced to park in the adjacent restaurant lot. There is a large "EXIT" sign in the parking lot, but whatever you do, don't follow that! The exit was blocked by parked cars! The pool and hot tub closed at 9:00 pm when we were there, due to the fireworks display in town. Prior notice of this would have been appreciated, as we packed towels and swim suits anticipating a relaxing evening in the hot tub. Our room was adequate once we evicted the mosquitoes, ants and spiders that had moved in prior to our arrival. The family we traveled with rented a patio room, which would have been lovely had there not been animal feces on the grass adjacent to the patio, as well as various spider webs on the doorwall. This same family received no maid service in their room, and was offiered a mere 10% discount by the manager for their inconvience. They had also requested a suite, but were given one room with 2 queen beds and a kitchenette area. Overall, we did not feel we received a good value for our money and will definitely stay elsewhere next year. The only positive comment I can write about this hotel is that it has a great location.

We always stay here when we come to charlevoix in the summertime and for those that haven't been here before, its by far the best location (1 minute walk to beach, 3 minute walk across bridge to downtown shops/restaurants). They have a great continental breakfast, pool is very nice and I think they just replaced the hot tub because it all looks brand new. Kids always have a blast staying here as do we. Its very clean and the standard rooms we use are great! A++++

We've stayed at the Weathervane for several years, but this year seemed to be a turn off. The rooms seem to be getting tired, we didn't have maid service or get clean towels (had to ask for them), the bathroom had hairs from someone else upon our arrival (on floor, in towels, on shower walls), a lot of bugs in the room, and not enough parking spaces to accomodate all their rooms. The best thing they have going for them is their location. We'll be looking elsewhere next year.
