We were here earlier this week and had a wonderful time. The view of the blue water is spectacular. The hotel has been undergoing renovation. In fact, when we checked in they said the lobby was just completed 2 months ago. Both of the restaurants have made changes. The exterior of the hotel needs work. Crews of people were working...

What a beautiful and pleasant place. Several people we talked to said that they come every year. I understand why. We came from Mackinac Island and decided to stay there on way back to Georgia. Now we want to go back. Rooms were wonderful. Balcony overlooking water. We went outside and sat several different locations. In area, don't miss this...

Great location, friendly staff, nice rooms, BUT, our room wasn't made up by housekeeping until after 5 pm even though we had left for a bike ride at 10:30 am.. Loud, live music played outside our room til way after 9:30 for a private function. We paid a lot of money for a third floor room overlooking the lake. This...

You would think that 10 years apart, we would have a different check-in experience, but NO! I won't go into the debacle from 2005 but it included both the front desk and the restaurant. I was with my wife. This time, I was with my son and he had booked a room with two beds. I called before our trip...

I would give this hotel the top rating. I went here with my wife and toddler last May (initially decided for 2 nights), and the hotel provided the best service that I could have asked for...hence, I extended my stay for one more night and the hotel staff was quick in honoring that. The hotel is at an awesome location...

Great waterfront hotel. Includes a really nice breakfast buffet. Don't like balconies that connect across the back where each room can see into your balcony and part of your room. The balcony is like a huge veranda with railings separating each room. Only the suites have private balconies it looks like. Staff in the restaurant are very nice Like the...

My husband and I were guests here for three night in August 2014. Our room was nicely appointed and comfortable. We had a nice balcony overlooking the gardens. We were in close proximity to the Main Street with many shops and restaurants. Plenty of places to walk or sit and enjoy the water views. We very much enjoyed The Inns...

I took my family here for an extended weekend getaway. From the moment I pulled up to the lobby, I was impressed by how friendly the staff was - from the valet guys to the front desk. Becky checked me in, and the first thing she did when she saw that I had 4 little boys was give me vouchers...

I had a great room overlooking Little Travers Bay! It was so reminiscent of the times I spent in the area as a youth. I love the smells, sights and sounds of Lake Michigan. This hotel had it all. I even left the sliding glass doors open to the room side patio to hear the sounds of the waves crashing...
