We arrived early in the evening and were greeted immediately by hotel staff. The luggage was carried in and the car was parked in a matter of minutes. The room was more than we could have asked for. I love Aveda, so I was extremely happy to see that guests are provided with these products. The rooms are so clean...

The Inn at Bay Harbor met all of our hopes & expectations. We were greeted warmly and the lady at reception was on task and very kind. Our room was spotless and the bedding was a cloud of comfort. Our (free) shuttle driver, Keith, added a complimentary tour of the village, pointing out interesting places (John Wayne's boat is docked...

This was in good walking distance of downtown. Stayed for a conference and the conference center was nearby. Wish the weather had been a little nicer!! Pool was nice as was hot tub. Breakfast was pretty good.

Everyone here is friendly. The person that checked us in remembered our names the next day without looking at a computer screen. The newly renovated lobby is a HUGE improvement from what it was. Rooms were spacious and clean, view from the balcony is better than the Gulf of Mexico. Food and drinks are great. I think I've made my...

We stayed here for three nights while in the area to run the Charlevoix half marathon. My review is based off other $400 a night hotels so to be clear, this is nicer than a Hampton Inn but by no means is this a five star property. Pluses are a very nice staff and always friendly people. I do think...

Excellent resort facility undergoing renovations so be warned of construction work in progress. Service was hit and miss. Valet parking was non-existent both at arrival and departure. Front desk staff were inexperienced and computers were down. Kudos to conference staff who went above and beyond to make the conference meals and snacks excellent. Make sure to insist on room overlooking...

We were here earlier this week and had a wonderful time. The view of the blue water is spectacular. The hotel has been undergoing renovation. In fact, when we checked in they said the lobby was just completed 2 months ago. Both of the restaurants have made changes. The exterior of the hotel needs work. Crews of people were working...

What a beautiful and pleasant place. Several people we talked to said that they come every year. I understand why. We came from Mackinac Island and decided to stay there on way back to Georgia. Now we want to go back. Rooms were wonderful. Balcony overlooking water. We went outside and sat several different locations. In area, don't miss this...

Great location, friendly staff, nice rooms, BUT, our room wasn't made up by housekeeping until after 5 pm even though we had left for a bike ride at 10:30 am.. Loud, live music played outside our room til way after 9:30 for a private function. We paid a lot of money for a third floor room overlooking the lake. This...

You would think that 10 years apart, we would have a different check-in experience, but NO! I won't go into the debacle from 2005 but it included both the front desk and the restaurant. I was with my wife. This time, I was with my son and he had booked a room with two beds. I called before our trip...
