Our room was clean and our beds were comfortable. Although our room was clean, there were some visible webs in the corners and in the little nooks and crannies. Our room came with a serious sauna which we would have loved to try had we stayed longer. The bathroom was really spacious and really nice. The location is definitely perfect...

We were in the newly renovated part of the property. This meant not quite finished in my mind. The walls separating us from the next room we could hear talking, tv, snoring, everything. The closet was finished in raw wood, i think, and all in all it was a lot of money for a poor quality room. The bathroom shower...

The room was exactly as pictured, but in order to get ice we had to go to the main building. Parking was less than adequate. Housekeeping never came to clean our room, so we had to call for more towels. A coffee pot in the room would have been nice. Also no drawers in which to put away clothes and...

Last week we had 4 couples that traveled to Harbor Springs for a long fall weekend. We booked Colonial Inn based on Trip Advisor ratings and the web site. Well we had a real surprise. First there are no "Lake View" rooms in the main house or any room given that the owner built condos blocking the former lake view....

The room was beautiful, big, clean and comfortable. However the room service was lacking. We ran out of both toilet paper and tissue. No one was in the office and no one answered the phone. The outside lighting was terrible because there was none. There were wooden steps leading up to the walkway out side our room. No lights and...

This is a well maintained historic property that has been nicely updated. It is located in a beautiful residential area. We had a very nice room with a balcony and 2 beds. The service was good, with a decent selection for the complimentary breakfast including eggs and sausage. It is a nice walk of about 7/8 mile into town along...

We spent the weekend at Colonial Inn. The room was large and clean; and, a very nice touch was the fireplace. There were 2 wing chairs in front of the fireplace, which we greatly appreciated, as we had a somewhat cool and rainy day on Saturday. The bed was comfortable and there were very adequate linens, with extra blankets in...

This is a pretty-but-worn 120 year old inn, and has the character you'd expect. The decidedly non-flat floor in our room was a fun quirk (since we don't have to live with it!). The area is beautiful, and very walkable. We enjoyed our stay, and were wowed by the size of the room. The gas fireplace warmed the cold, cold...

We enjoyed our time at the Inn, but unfortunately arrived two days after the owner, his wife, and youngest son perished in an aircraft accident. There was a somber atmosphere, and yet the staff performed their services in an excellent manner. We offered our hopes and prayers for their remaining son and the burdens now on his shoulders.

We stayed here after a day at Mackinac Island. What a wonderful discovery. The entire town is very beautiful. The rooms were spacious and well laid out. Reception and the dining area for the free breakfast were wonderful too. The staff was very cheerful and helpful too. Loved it.
