Our room had two double beds, one with a very big sway in the middle. The beds are covered with old bedspreads. The carpet in the room was stained and very bumpy. Felt like you were walking over a rocky surface. Complained to the desk about the room, but they did not offer to change us. Lobby and restaurant present nice, but the rest of the place is dumpy. Would not consider staying here again. Quite a let down!

I was visiting family, and needed a room at the last minute. The staff was nice and got me checked in despite my late arrival. The layout of the hotel was a little confusing at first, and finding the handicapped entrance for my elderly mother in-law was difficult, but not impossible. The decor and design of the building make it quite beautiful to stay in (exposed wood ceiling beams, and rustic charm). I did not take advantage of the attached golf course or tennis court, but there were a fair number of other guests there for golf and/or tennis.

My husband and I stay at this resort every time we visit family in Bay City. For over the past 10 years we have enjoyed the comforts this establishment has to offer. You will not find a better hotel for your money it is kid friendly as well as pet friendly. Looking forward to staying here over the forth of July weekend.

Planning a wedding has been great working with Katie. The entrée taste testing was real nice. Chef even served us. Accommodating the future Mrs. and Mr. Then meeting on multiple occasions in the lounge to go over details. The bar tender was very kind and attentive. The rooms are very clean. Thank you Bay Valley.

My sister and as well as my brother and sister in lW stayed at this hotel while in the area to attend a family wedding. The rooms were very clean and comfortable, I experienced ongoing problems with the electronic key card and had to have it reprogrammed at least 3 times. The lobby of the hotel is actually up a full flight of steps from the entrance, therefor our rooms were on the third floor. There was no bell man to assist with our luggage although we were able to find one luggage cart to use to get our luggage up to our room. Unfortunately, my brother did not know this was available until after he had made 3 trips to the cars and climbed 2 flights of stairs. The breakfast was a cold continental style although an upgrade to a hot breakfast was available for a fee. We did not use the adjoining golf course which looked to be in good shape from the parking area. Help with luggage and a better selection of breakfast items would bring my review from an average to very good.

This is the third year in a row we have had our yearly golf trip at Bay Valley. This year we had 60 guys. The resort always takes care of us, catering to our needs. Although there is only one course, it is challenging and in good shape. The accommodations are nice but a bit dated. Because of our large group, we had our own banquet room for dinner each night with a great buffet. Our lunch between rounds on Saturday was a taco bar. Right up our alley. The bar is spacious and very inexpensive. And I'm pretty sure that Bay Valley is the only resort in Michigan that sells domestic beers on the course for 2 bucks. That alone impressed me. Looking forward to returning next May. For the price it's one of the best deals around.

We stayed here a few years ago for a family X-mas getaway. (LONG before June 2013. More like Dec 2008 or 2009) We had so much fun. The hotel seem empty, probably because it was a golf course retreat in the dead of winter. But that was okay with us!! The rooms were spacious. I loved the private balcony. The pool was neat. It was one of those connected indoor/outdoor pools (you know, one where you can swim from the inside pool right to the outside pool) The breakfast buffet was really good. We had the BIG room with two smaller rooms connected. The room was so big that my mother in law brought a HUGE 9ft. tree and decorated it to make it feel more like X-mas. Bronner's X-mas store was a short drive. Very cool store. Old town Saginaw is such a neat little town. Loved all the carriages! Would love to come back to this hotel.

Room Tip: Nice hotel. We loved our stay
