Nice classic Inn experience

Posted Sep 27, 2016
Pros: Location and view, rooms were nicely furnished and nice size, easy access to other area attractions and activities.
Cons: Coffee makers in the room
Location: 1/2 mile from quaint downtown Petoskey, 15 miles to Charlevoix, 35 to Mackinac Island, 90 to Sault Ste Marie.
Nice Inn with charm and a beautiful location! Rooms were nicely furnished, bathrooms a bit dated but nice and clean. Beautiful view of Little Traverse Bay. We used this location as base for day outings in and around Petoskey and Charlevoix, but also to Mackinac Island (35 miles) and Sault Ste Marie (90 miles). Staff was friendly and helpful with local information.

Room was very clean and recently updated. Hotel staff accommodated our request for a first floor room (no elevator). Would definitely come back again.

Great views

Don't believe the in-room coffee and free breakfast amenities listing. At 9:00 am the office opens....that's where the coffee packets are located. Free breakfast? Granola bars and drinks from a mini fridge.

Fabulous view

Posted Aug 19, 2016
Pros: Everything, especially the view.
Cons: Kinda nice the way it is. You get exactly what you pay for!
Location: It is in Petoskey. Great area to visit. Hit the downtown area as well as the magnificent waterfront. You will run out of time before you run out of th
Wonderful, small town feel hotel. The rooms are older but very clean and comfortable. The staff is very freindly and helpful. Safe, secure, and quiet. The real appeal is the unbelievable panoramic view of the bay. This is seen from every room. I sat out, on the balcony, for hours just reading a book and enjoying the water. Great stay, highly recommended. You will not be disappointed.

Nice hotel close to downtown

Very clean and comfortable room. Beautiful view of the lake. Staff was very helpful with any questions. The only negative was the tv. Rather fuzzy and not many channels.

Bay Inn ...Perfect

Posted Sep 29, 2015
Pros: It was clean and fresh. Very good price. Great view.

Very comfortable, lovely view, great location. The room was very nicely appointed and spotlessly clean. The bed was comfortable. The entire facility is very small and cozy.
