With expensive views of Lake Michigan and a charming vibe of years gone by, the reasonably priced Bay Inn Petoskey is a solid choice for families who just need a clean, friendly place to rest between excursions. An outdoor patio area offers spectacular close-ups of Lake Michigan, and the rooms’ dÃ©cor is quainter than your typical chain hotel. The attentive owners are longtime Petoskey residents who love to cater to special requests and making their guests feel right at home. No hot breakfast, but guests do receive coffee and breakfast bars in their welcome basket upon checking in.

We spent 3 days touring the petoskey area and stayed two nights at the Bay Inn. Clean, comfortably furnished, well run mom and pop operation. Fabulous view. Above all, reasonable. They gave us a 20% off coupons to a nearby breakfast restaurant that was great. So much better than motel breakfast.
We stayed in winter so we were lucky that prices were rock bottom. Definitely a steal for what we paid. Clean spacious room with a fantastic view of the lake - I can only imagine how it is during the summer.
