Positive Reviews

Tranquil atmosphere—perfect for relaxation!

Bay Inn of Petoskey is very ideal for unwinding, as it is located in a peaceful and quiet environment. According to guests, they were not disturbed by any noise because the rooms have excellent soundproofing. Furthermore, opening the room's large windows lets the fresh breeze of the lake enter the rooms- perfect for a rejuvenating stay!

Spectacular views of Lake Michigan

One of the best things about this inn is the picturesque view of the pristine Lake Michigan. Guests loved the calming view from the sitting areas outside from their rooms or while they were having a picnic at the garden. Some guests even mentioned that they have seen the “million dollar” sunset from the inn.

Hosts and staff members offer outstanding service

Most guests loved the politeness and hospitable treatment offered by the staff members. On the other hand, the owners were also friendly and went the extra mile to make the guests' stay as pleasant as possible.

Negative Reviews

Unsatisfactory bathrooms with weak water pressure

As mentioned by guests, the showers in the bathrooms had weak pressure and the sinks worked slowly. When you experience this, do not think twice to inform the staff and they'll do what they can to solve the trouble right away.

Outdated in-room amenities

Some guests are bothered because the microwaves and coffee & tea making facilities looked a bit old. However, these amenities still work well. In addition, the mattresses show signs of old age as they produce squeaky sounds at times according to guests.

Issues with the Televisions

The televisions have decent sizes but most of them have poor reception. Some guests also commented that there seem to be no cable channels, in contrast with what the property advertised.
