Looks better on the outside.

Pros: Every room faced Lake Michigan. If you want to watch a pretty sunset, you need to drive down the road a mile or so.
Cons: Everything inside the room needs upgrading.
Location: We loved the Petoskey-Charlevoix area! Free Tour at Kilwins Chocolate Kitchen; lots of unique shops in both towns.
This was an older property. There was an older odor in the room. The bathroom sink was yellow porcelain and stained. Bathroom amenities included a large bottle of shampoo. Wasn't sure if the bathroom tile was dirty or stained. Not a very comfortable night.

We are sorry you did not enjoy your night stay at Bay Inn of Petoskey. Please let us know of any issue so we could have changed your guest room. All guest rooms had the bathroom tiles steam cleaned and all carpets were professionally cleaned as this year. The falls are beautiful and the stars are especially brilliant at night, as all guests over-look Lake Michigan. Happy Trails, Shirley & Verne Osterlund, owners

Every room faces the lake. Check-in area and room key is retro 1960's with free snacks and inexpensive soda cans. Retro rooms with modern conveniences. Nice size LCD TV with more stations than can be looked at. Just east of Petoskey, you can be downtown in 5 minutes by car. Great place.

We were in Petoskey for an overnight to conduct business for my parent's estate. Fantastic view of Little Traverse Bay. Convenient to Petoskey.

Room was clean and cozy. Mattresses in dire need of update. If the beds are updated we would recommend to friends & family.
