This place needs a major shake up. The basic rooms were $200 plus, had horrible HVAC, very poor Wi-Fi, and overall were a bad value. The location is great, the service at the front desk was very subpar… No smiling faces no welcome to the weathervane, no nice to see you… Nothing. We will not stay there again. And we will not recommend it to anyone else either. There are too many places in town to rent that will be much better value. Plus a musty smell in room. The location is ideal, I just wish the property matched in quality.

We always enjoy eating dinner while seated at the bar here. Great menu with plenty of variety and good value for the money. Bar staff are very friendly and we find it entertaining to watch them interact with the customers and each other. Mushroom bisque, crab cakes and pasta dish were all excellent.

After viewing some of the previous reviews of Weathervane, I reluctantly made the reservation when planning this trip last year. We stayed here in a standard room this past weekend, and we're so relieved! All of the staff we encountered could not have been more friendly or helpful, from the man who checked us in and office staff who answered questions, to the sweet young lady in housekeeping. Is it a new property? No. But they have and still are making upgrades. Our standard room had obvious significant updating, including the newer furniture, carpet and fresh paint. And when I mentioned in checkout that I would change the curtains, as they were hard to fully close and let in too much morning light, a manager agreed with me and said they were in order and are expected in 3 weeks. So an 'A' for great effort in updating.
The breakfast was better than many. It included: yogurt, fresh fruit, cooked oatmeal, hard boiled eggs, bagels, blueberry bagels, or English muffins to toast, waffle maker, coffee cake type choices, and juice, coffee, and tea choices.

The best part was its location. You can watch the draw bridge raise from the breakfast room or pool area, and our first evening strolled across the bridge, along the lovely canal, and down to Michigan Beach to do a little rock hounding and watch the sunset over Lake Michigan.

Weathervane Terrace Inn and Suites was in a great location. It is walking distance to downtown shops and restaurants. The hotel is old, somewhat showing its age. the rooms were clean and large. Even though we did not use the kitchen, it was nice to have a refrigerator, stove, and microwave. Second floor rooms seemed to be a little better in terms of the view from the patio. We were not looking at the parking lot! Continental breakfast was ok, service was good. It was nice to be able to walk across the parking lot to go to a nice restaurant for dinner.

Room Tip: If you are able to walk the stairs, second floor is a little better.

We had a very nice dinner with friends here this past week. This restaurant overlooks the channel leading to Round Lake + the bridge that opens for boat traffic. Very fun to watch. We sat inside, but outdoor seating is also available. We had a very nice waitress-the young girl who brought us to our table was snippy. The food was very good-small portions. My friend ordered the ribs-she enjoyed the taste, but they were very spicy-didn't say that on the menu-she could only eat 1/2 the ribs due to spicy-ness. We enjoyed our friends, and we did not feel rushed to leave even though there were some people waiting when we left. We would go back.
