From the minute we walked in and were greeted by a very friendly, helpful desk clerk to when we left this was a great experience. Clean, spacious room with a great bay view. Pool was a little cold but the hottub was wonderful, pool room very clean. No complaints, would definitely stay again, made our weekend away even better.

Bad choice in having the TV in lobby blaring Fox news the week after the election. Had to close a door in the empty restaurant to work. Mentioned it to the guy at desk and instead of politely changing the channel he said it's his favorite station. Not surprised being Northern Michigan though. Terrible customer service. Hotel is dated.

This is a nicely done,non chain hotel in a great location. Lots of good restaurants nearby, one In the hotel, local wine available. Beds were ok, rooms were nice enough and clean. Staff was friendly. Decent value overall, Westin hotels are our choice when possible, to give this review perspective.

The room was spacious, the bed comfortable and the staff was pleasant and attentive. The breakfast eating area was a bit cramped with only one table. the location was ideal for taking side trips to see the fall colors and it was convenient to numerous restaurants.

A long weekend up north with older friends was held here. The restaurant has excellent food, service and prices. Yes as others mentioned updates are recommended. Sleep and shower is all we need on our trips so this was N/A. Location is right across from the State park that led us to various bike trails.

Stayed for 3 nights. The balcony and the water view was very nice. Front desk staff was friendly and helpful. The lounge was nice for a drink and a snack. The beds could use an update.

The employees were extremely professional and accommodating when we needed to check in early and then stay an extra night. The location is beautiful, right on the beach with a beautiful view. We had a 4th floor room overlooking the water. The room was clean and well appointed.

but at full price, I would have been VERY disappointed. Happy Hour prices in lounge are great, location convenient but it should be updated for prices. We are already planning our next trip to the area and probably won't return here
