“unimpressed”
Reviewed September 16, 2013

Our unit was near the bridge and there was constant noise every time a vehicle drove over it (which was continuous). The view was of the canal which was not very pretty. The unit is spacious but stuck in the 80's. There was no window in the bedroom or bathroom, which probably helped with the noise issue but it lent a cave-like feeling to the place. The wi-fi did not work and when we reported this to guest services the response was, "Oh yeah, someone else said that too," with no offer to help. There is no breakfast included. The only reason to stay here would be location, but there are plenty of better places to stay downtown and we were much happier when we moved across the street to another hotel.

Our unit was way overpriced! kitchen faucet didn't work, continual hum from TV/DVD combo in bedroom and it was OFF, bedroom tv stand/dresser old and musty, bath rug hadn't been washed in who knows how long, sofa bed cushions stained. Wall decor from garage sales. Location only plus. Would not stay there again.

We enjoyed a two night stay at this inn. Our room was very spacious and I loved the layout. All suites are waterfront, I believe. Each unit is individually owned so each will be different. Our kitchen was well appointed with everything you could need. We especially enjoyed the fireplace as both nights were surprisingly chilly for early September. It was fun watching the ferry come and go to Beaver Island. The front desk staff was very friendly and informative. Did find the on site restaurant a bit pricey so we chose other options in the area. We look forward to going back to Charlevoix and will definitely stay at Edgewater Inn.

stayed here with the family for a couple of nights.
Stunning veiw from the balcony over the bay.
Room was spot on for our family, all amenities we needed.
Had dinner in the Bistro and that was very good too.

We celebrated our 40th anniversary at the Edgewater Inn. It is right on Round Lake, just across the drawbridge from the downtown Charlevoix shops and restaurants. We had a one bedroom suite, near the drawbridge end of the building. The room was well appointed with new carpet, a large flat screen TV and fireplace. We decided we had the best dining view in town so picked up a pizza and bottle of wine and enjoyed a very private dinner for two! There is a fair amount of road nice when cars rattle across the drawbridge, but it meant we had a great view of the boat traffic and the drawbridge in action. The road noise was no problem at night with the separate bedroom. I insist on quiet room locations, so was pretty concerned when I saw Room 236 was directly off the lobby, but that was not a problem either. Many thanks to the front desk manager who effectively took care of the problem of rowdy, drinking young males out on their patio below us. We are looking forward to a return trip!

Room Tip: Be sure to be waterfront and ask for a room down the hall from the lobby. Also recommend the 2nd or...

Great place to stay in Charlevoix....our 3rd stay there. Sit on the balcony/patio if weather permits and enjoy your morning coffee or glass of wine overlooking Round Lake....walk to some very good shopping and dining. The condos are well equipped, clean and have plenty of room!

We are heading out tomorrow for our 4th stay at The Edgewater! We have guided friends to this wonderful and affordable Charlevoix get-away. The rooms are great! There is a kitchen which allows you some flexibility in your dining options. We always go to John Cross Fish Market and buy some fish spread and smoked fish to have as appetizers while we enjoy sipping our favorite boat drinks and watching the harbor from our patio. The restaurant is great and we usually hit it for breakfast. Craig and Chris have always been incredibly accommodating, professional and courteous in trying to work out details for us. I am sure I will not be disappointed in another great trip to Charlevoix and The Edgewater...even though the weather may not be quite as welcoming. We will still traverse the countryside, visit the wineries and frequent the incredible Charlevoix shops and restaurants.

Room Tip: If they are unoccupied and not busy, they will allow you to look at the rooms before you check in. I...
