Very pleasant

We wanted to be near Petoskey for dinner at Chandler's and to visit the town. The Inn is just outside town. The balcony outside the room has a great view of the bay.

Chandler's. Ask to sit in the wine cellar because the other area is very noisy.

Nice View, but the rest not the best

The view was splendid, across a busy street from the Bay. Lots of traffic noise and bright lights outside the window/door. It was so bright in the room that it was difficult to sleep. If you like a dark, quiet room to sleep in, this place is not for you. Furnishings clean, but old.

Great place to stay

Everything about this hotel is great! The room service was nice, the owners were great and the rooms themselves were wonderful. Only "bad" thing is when US-31 gets busy it can be a pain to turn into and out of. This is a fantastic place for the price!

Nice place to stay, for the price.

As long as this motel remains very cheap, compared to other hotels in the area, I recommend it. It is no frills, but has a good location, comfortable rooms, and is reasonably priced.

Right out of the 1980s.

This is a very comfortable, scenic, and family owned place to stay. The view of the lake is nice. As long as this hotel remains about half the price of the 3-Star chain hotels, I highly recommend it.

Short drive to Boyne, Boyne Highlands, and Nubs Knob. Within a mile of downtown Petoskey, and a walk from the lake.

Bay Inn

No heat, and no breakfast was available. The hotel put up a sign at 8am that said be back at 9am. No breakfast at all. Rooms were clean, but not having heat in Northern Michigan after driving 4 hours in a total whiteout of snow was unacceptable. Called hotel right after checkout in the morning, the owner did not offer any compensation. All that was said "call us before you come again and we'll make sure the heat works". There will not be a next time. Thank you!

Beautiful Sunset Views over Lake MI

Lovely, clean & affordable rooms. Sunset over Lake Michigan & Little Traverse Bay was beautiful. Nice outdoor sitting patio to look over the water & relax outside our room. Bike path to Petosky & Charlevoix across the street. Wish we would of had our bikes. Took in the nearby casino for fun & toured downtown Petosky. Location is nearby the ski resorts also. Wow, what a find.

Little Traverse Bay & bike path (blacktop) across the street to ride to Charlevoix, Bay Harbour or Petoskey. Bay Harbour & Downtown Petoskey less than 3 miles away. Just to look outside my rooms window & see the water was to cool. We could have spend a lot more money at another hotel & not seen this view of the water. Coffee in the morning a must, it was right in the room to make. Enjoyed our stay!!

close to bay harbor and cheap

We were just looking for a cheap place for sleeping. We spent just one night and didn't spend time in the hotel. But, if you are looking for more than a place to sleep, you should choose an another hotel.
