Harbor Lights Resort

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 11 June 2014

I planned my family reunion at Harbor Lights in June of 2014. I just can't say enough about the place. Everything was wonderful. The rooms were beautiful and the setting was just perfect. From the sandy beach to the marina and light house nothing could have been more perfect. In addition to that the staff was very friendly. Steve helped me out tremendously with booking a room for our family dinner. The town of Frankfort could not have been any more helpful or inviting. I can't wait to go back.

Room Tip: I would highly recommend a room with a view!

I am always nervous using unbranded properties, and this was no exception, but we were completely delighted with our stay. The room was fairly modest, but the bed was comfortable, the linens and pillows were great, the towels were nice, the wifi was excellent, the donuts and coffee were very good, the pool and hot tub were nice, clean and the proper temperature, there was plenty of ice in the ice machine, the location is the best in town, right on the beach and lighthouse jetty, it is a very short walk to the downtown area with restaurants, a park and marina. The room was quiet, the a/c worked perfectly and best of all did not smell! No moldy, musty odors here!! The city of Frankfort itself is a gem. Darling homes, well maintained with trees, and flowers and a charming walkability. You are close to the Betsie Lighthouse and not far from Empire and parts of the Sleeping Bear Dunes Lakeshore. The price was very reasonable. The staff are charming. I would recommend this over a stay in Traverse City any day!

This resort offers larger housekeeping/condo units as well as motel units. All seem well appointed and comfortable; and the location of this lodging is ideal for the area. The main street of Frankfort is just a block away, and the beach of Lake Michigan is merely a few yards away. It's a simple place and, therefore, reasonably priced. No breakfast or other meals are served; but Frankfort has a number of good options for any meal. The staff is professional. We were very pleased with this choice.

The room is spacious and clean. It would have been better if they serve breakfast to make it more convenient for business travelers. The location is by the lake so it is convenient for people who want to enjoy the lake.

This is not only a hotel but vacation rentals are available. The beach is right behind the resort and the marina in front. Easy walk to town with many shops and great eatries. Very clean and friendly staff to help with any requests. I will be staying here again.

I took an impromptu trip Memorial Day weekend up M22 ending in glen arbor. I opted to stay at Harbor lights resort and it was fantastic. The young man at the front desk was friendly and professional. The luxury suite that was available was awesome. It was roomy and spotless. I will return for sure when I can stay longer
