“Best night ever”
Reviewed August 14, 2013

Motel had pool, breakfast area around it, restaurant in lower level that was exceptional. Couldn't ask for more. The restaurant was like an old English pub and has excellent food and service. Our room was at pool side, but we were not bothered by outside noise. The motel address was actually Coralville, Iowa

The Harbor Springs Best Western is immaculate, quiet, and amazing! Their attention to details such as a Keurig coffee maker in the room and a "clean remote" for the flat screen TV are wonderful. They even have rooms with whirlpool tubs!! (If you don't want to swim in the indoor pool and hot tub with others.) The people who work here are very friendly and extremely helpful. Breakfast is more than just bagels and coffee. You can make your own waffle, enjoy fresh fruit and cereal, or stick with muffins, danishes, and donuts. The selections are endless. Only a few minutes from Harbor Springs and Petosky, this hotel is perfect for visiting many up north Michigan vacation spots. Our favorite is driving the tunnel of trees (M-119) up to Cross Village to have lunch/dinner at Legs Inn. Great hotel, great value, friendly staff! What more could you ask for?

Very great staff, and everyone who took care of us! It was a continental breakfast..but had hot sandwiches, and waffles! It was so good..you can't go hungry!! So near Harbor Springs, Petosky...and Charlevoix and the Odawa Casino...which is all the places we needed to go! Highly recommended! Weekends are spendy, tho.

The room and hotel is very clean and comfortable. It was not taht full and they separated the occupied rooms to buffer possible noise. I could not hear anyone but at breakfast someone else said they could hear their neighbor. Overall it was very quite and peaceful but outside I could hear some minor noise from the airport light tower. Note the rooms open directly to the outside and that does not bother me but it may for some people. The small breakfast area was not crowded but I could see that being an issue when the motel was busier. I wish the pool would have been open a little later but over all the stay was very pleasant. The motel staff who I believe was the owner was very helpful in answering questions. I would stay there again except except maybe in the summer when their rates are fairly high.

We do like to space the rooms out when possible for that very reason. We are more than willing to leave the pool open longer when asked, most nights we can and really don't mind. The airport light in our backyard has been there for 40+ years and at times we do have to call for them to service it. We take great pride in knowing our customers enjoy their stay.

Perfect stay for our family of 6 (2 parents, 1 grandparent, & 3 kids 9-12) with adjoining rooms. Quiet & clean rooms. Grassy area for whiffle ball & soccer. Nice new breakfast room (owner actually stopped in to greet people & didn't rush you out.) Super friendly staff. Kids had fun in pool. Will stay here again, soon!

Don't usually stay at Best Westerns but this motel is an absolute gem. The office and service staff were very welcoming and friendly and the service was outstanding. The unit was recently updated and very clean. Parking is right out the door. Area is midway between Harbor Springs and Petosky on M-119. Overall, a remarkable property where the owners really care about your comfort. Only negative was that the breakfast room is a bit too small to accommodate more than 12-15 persons. A great value in this area of Michigan.

Wonderful experience! The motel is very clean and quite apparent the owners take great pride in what they do. The pool area is very nice and breakfast room very pleasant. Pretty basic breakfast but great green mountain coffee! Our favorite! Close to Harbor Springs, Petoskey, and Bay Harbor. Would definitely stay again when visiting the area.

Room Tip: ask for room in back of motel.
