Good and large rooms, extremely clean. I had a back facing room and it was absolutely quiet. Refrigerator even had a small freezer. All standard amenities. Breakfast bar was not outstanding and selection minimal, but the coffee was good and when I discovered the milk was gone the manager immediately replaced it. My stay was for 2 nights but when...

This was my first event to plan and when I called, Kenny answered and was very helpful and knowledgeable and polite. When I went to the hotel to pay for the reservation, Michael was just as helpful, knowledgeable and polite. It was a very good experience for me

Getting a room in this area at this time of year can be challenging, but advice from friends sent us in this direction in spite of some of the reviews we had read. Short stay, got in late and left early but in no way were we disappointed. Large room, comfortable, clean, micro/fridge, Breakfast offering better than most continental, plus!...

Stayed at the Bay Inn because we were in Tawas for a formal event. I was pleasantly surprised at the property and condition of rooms based on mixed reviews I had read. Overall, for a one night stay, it meet our expectations. Large, clean room. Bed was comfortable. Clean towels. Working TV and remote. There was a mini microwave and...

I had a most enjoyable weeklong stay this December at the beautiful Tawas, MI, Bay Inn! The hotel was delightfully clean and very well managed. The accommodations and amenities were comfortable and more than adequate. I enjoyed a wide variety of breakfast items, fruits, coffee and juice to choose from - with each morning rise. I found both, the hot...

The staff was very friendly and accommodating. Breakfast is fairly bland, but about what you might expect for a continental breakfast. Room was quiet but the AC had a hard time cooling the room, leaving it hotter than we would like. Bed was comfortable, pillows leaved something to be desired. Room was clean and well set up. Towels were pretty...

We stayed here overnight because it had a pool. The pool and hot tub were both dirty. The hot tub had a film over the entire seats and walls that was a shade of red. Looked to be a mold. Pool was also cloudy and dark. Wall shower area needed a serious rust and calcium deposit removal. Rooms were adequate....

My room was very spacious and comfortable - the A/C unit and fan in the bathroom were both a bit loud, but that is my only complaint about the room. The hallways and staircases weren't vacuumed once while I was there (7 days) so that wasn't so nice, but everything else was wonderful. The beds were nice and the linens...

i made a reservation, months in advance. was for three people and asked for a cot. they assured me there would be one. Imagine my surprise when we entered the room and no cot. I was then informed they don't have ANY cots...and that the person who took my reservation never said they had any, which would make me a...

We booked a one night stay and arrived at the hotel at 12:00 noon and was rudely greeted and told they don't start check in's until 4:00 . So for a little over three hours we explored Tawas. As we have already vacationed in Tawas before we really were basically killing time until check in . When we returned to...
