This hotel is in a nice area, very close to the beach, in a quiet neighborhood. The rooms are clean and as shown. The prices are amazing for the size of the room. True, the breakfast is not the best, but it is very adequate, and the outdoor seating is nice. I would stay here again, and I would recommend... More

We decided to stay in Harbor Springs a night in our annual fall trip 'up north'. We chose the Colonial Inn this time and were moderately happy. The property is about a mile from downtown Harbor Springs. As we entered our room, we noticed a particularly musty smell which improved by opening windows and removing some humidity by running the...

We loved the Colonial Inn. It was recommended by our soccer club manager. We stayed there for the Autumn Blast soccer tournament in Petosky. It was only a 20 minute drive to the fields. The mattresses were wonderful. Very pleasant sleep. Service desk was very helpful. And the continental breakfast was great: make your own waffles, fresh fruit, cereal, bagels,... More

We reserved rooms at the Colonial Inn for our special bike ride on The Little Traverse Wheelway. We loved the remodeled rooms that have a modern, cottage type feel. The rooms are bright and cheery, with good bathrooms. The complimentary breakfast was delicious, and you could make your own waffles. The guy at the front desk was very helpful about... More

We love this town and the Colonial Inn. Harbor Springs is filled with history as is the town where the old money families have built immense "summer homes" resembling those you'd find in Chicago suburbs on Lake Michigan. The standards are high and you can feel it. The hotel has been renovated recently and the rooms are comfortably large. they... More

We stayed for one night at the Colonial Inn in the two bedroom suite. It was a great place in a beautiful neighborhood. The staff was helpful and gave a lot of information regarding the area.

We stayed in the main house. Our room was very large with a king size bed, two chairs and table and a chest of drawers. We enjoyed the breakfast while dining on the side porch. In walking distance to downtown, all the restaurants.

Was in Harbor Springs for a wedding and found this hotel to be lovely. The setting is beautiful and surrounded by gorgeous million dollar homes on the water. Walking distance to shopping and restaurants
