Pros: Warm swimming pool
Cons: Swimming pool was cloudy.
The guys went to the I500 and I enjoyed my day swimming, relaxing in the hot tub, reading and watching tv. A great day!

We're so glad you had such a great time relaxing in the pool / spa area! We're working on adjusting the chemicals to clear up the pool ... it's a pretty touchy operation! Thank you so much for taking the time to let us know about your stay and we're looking forward to seeing you again very soon!! Thanks for staying at the Bavarian Haus Lakefront Inn!

Great Location, Comfy Rooms

Posted Jan 30, 2018
We stayed here during the off-season and were happy to find a hotel that was open. It was definitely a bonus that they had, not one, but two whirlpools and a nice size pool. The beds were cozy, and it was nice to have a view looking out on the frozen lake.

Love the balcony

Posted Nov 18, 2017
Pros: Balcony
Cons: Mattress
Location: Tourist town...Off season was nice and quiet.
Overall good experience. They were having a little problem with the internet the night I was there but not their fault. Cable provider issues. The room was clean and full tub/shower is always a plus. The mattress could have been a little better and the pillows were just a touch on the substandard side. Being a smoker I absolutely loved the walk out balcony so I didn't have to run all the way outside to have a smoke. Betautiful view of Lake Huron and Mackinaw island as well.

Not as described

Posted Nov 16, 2017
Pros: Clean and great view. Decent location. Not in the main downtown area maybe a mile or two from the main action.
Cons: Dress your environmental staff appropriately. Dress and act professional. Take pride in yourself.
Location: Lot of historical areas to visit. The Mackinac bridge, state parks, and mystery spot.
We stayed for 2 days. There was no wifi connection. I asked to be moved to another room. We were not moved. I was told to move around to find a connection. None in our area. Breakfast was good. One lady was helpful telling us about local attractions or places to visit but it was unsolicited. The environmental services ladies were standing in the hallway blocking the way tor breakfast in the morning They were dressed inappropriately. Clothing was too tight and cleavage showing. Not professional. Talking about personal items in the hallway. The room was clean. The view was awesome.

Room was nice size but only had 2 chairs for 4 people. View was great -right on L Huron. Bathroom was small. Breakfast was mediocre. Pool area was very nice.
