I took a last minute trip to Lake Michigan and I really couldn't find any place to stay as they were all full. After a lengthy search, I found the Hexagon had a couple of rooms available. Upon reviewing the TRIPADVISOR critiques, I was very concerned that alot of the critiques sounded similar and that, maybe, the Hexagon was padding their comments. I found out I was dead wrong. Upon calling, the "Garden" room was recommended by the caretaker.
The Hexagon is located about 1/2 to 3/4 miles from downtown Pentwater.
I arrived at 830 at night, 90 minutes after normal check-in time ends. I was warmly greeted, shown around the premises, (which was gorgeously appointed and spotlessly clean). After being shown to my room, I found it to be fantastic (though no tv is available, only dvd's). The fabulous wood plank floor was something that I wish I had in my house. The bathroom was spacious, outrageously clean and shined. However, storage was a bit tight as they placed all the "fru-fru" items on the stand and there's little room for my stuff. The bed was very comfortable and the room had ample storage for short stays. At night, the room got a bit warm, and I had to open the door and turn on the floor fan. No ceiling fans there.
I arrived late for breakfast (nearly 90 minutes after breakfast ended) and the caretaker was there ready to serve a hot "puffy pancake" with fruit cup that was extremely good.
Overall, I don't understand why this place had ANY open rooms. The cost of the room ($185 per night) was a bit high, but well worth it. I highly recommend this place.
