Had been looking forward to a special stay...that didn't happen

Greeted by great staff but after that it was downhill: the room was sadly worn spread and sheets, lose headboard, saggy matress and road construction traffic noise that started at 5:30 AM. Very basic amenities of shampoo /soap, but no lotion or shower cap or sewkit. Dinner was to be Morel white fish but arived with no morels. When pointed out to the staff they said "oh the chef must have forgot.." While the fish cooled they went to the kitchen and came back in a few minutes with a bowl reconstituted dried morel slices mixed with alot of mixed veggies that were over cooked and out numbered the slices of dried truffles 20/1. By then the fish was cold. The staffed offered to give us a free dessert but not to remove the morel fish dinner from the check even though it was not what was discribed on the menu and had not been eaten. When we pointed out our disappointment to the assitant manager we got a shrug and "sorry".....having traveled the world I have never seen such lack of customer service in an establishment heralded as "worldclass." We tried to be tackful and point the shortfalls as pleasantly as possible and out of earshot from the other guests and not be the ugly tourist but the management just donesn't care

Relaxing Place to Stay

The Stafford Bay View Inn is the ideal place to stay while visiting Petoskey or Harbor Springs area. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The food is delicious and the rooms are uniquely decorated and comfortable. Their soaps and the touch of homemade cookies daily are an added touch of hospitality.

Worst experience.

They didn't have all of our rooms. It was my daughters wedding weekend, ended up having to go to another hotel. Will never book through either places again.
