Musty smell was was stuck out the most

Posted 25-Aug-2014
The check in employee was very nice. However, the condition and cleanliness of the facility was definitely lacking. If it wasn't so late, I would have left, and paid the cancellation fee.

Right on Lake Huron.

Posted 22-Aug-2014
Very clean hotel, right on Lake Huron. Rooms are a a bit dated but you can't beat the price. A 5 min Drive from downtown St. Ignace and the Mackinaw Island ferries.

Great Hotel in a Great location!

Posted 18-Aug-2014
Pros: The convenience and views!
Cons: The padding on the bed.
Location: It was very close to downtown and just a walk away from the lake.,
We stayed one night in this hotel and it was a great experience! Our room had a walk out patio that lead to the lawn which was full of games and a large play structure which was a great thing to see. Also, since it was right on the lake, the view was beautiful and you can sit out on a provided swing, provided patio chairs or even some pool chairs. It also was a great place to see the Saturday night fireworks in the downtown area. As far as the room, it was very spacious and perfect for what we were paying. The beds are not the most comfortable thing but just enough comfort to have a restful night!. I highly recommend coming here!.

Very Nice.

Posted 17-Aug-2014
Located right on the shoreline, this was a very pleasant and comfortable hotel. The rooms were nice, and there was plenty of hot water for the showers/baths. The breakfast was tasty. The views were spectacular. We would highly recommend this hotel, especially for the very affordable price. We plan on returning when we visit again.

Pretty Outside. Decor of Rooms Disappointing

Posted 15-Aug-2014
Pros: The view.
Cons: The decor and neatness of the rooms. They seemed somewhat shabby. There was sand in the stairwell and a towel was left on the banister for two days.
Location: The location was great. A convenient kiosk in the parking lot sold tickets to the Star Line ferry to Mackinac Island.
The view was great. The beach was not swimmable - OK for adults, not so much for kids. The room was definitely a contrast with the exterior - no hint of ambiance there! The pool was nice, although a LONG walk from the room. It's open till midnight and that's a good thing when you have kids to tire out so they'll fall asleep quickly. The breakfast included in the room price, was not gluten-free. All I could eat were the sausages and the bananas.

My Experience at Bavarian Haus Lakefront Inn

Posted 15-Aug-2014
Pros: I liked the location and the view of the lake.
Cons: I was in a first floor room with a porch that was accessible by other people. The first morning after I got up I found two beer bottles on the porch
Location: I took one of the ferries to Mackinac Island. I know there are many activities in the area.
I had an enjoyable two night stay at the Hotel. I especially enjoyed the view of the lake and Mackinac Island.

Pretty view from hotel toward the island, but very dated hotel. Breakfast was very lacking, & room to eat was very small.

Nice view of the lake

Posted 4-Aug-2014
Pros: Convenience for our trip.
Cons: Breakfast bar, hotel maintenance, and beach area cleaned.
Beach was not as picture. Dirty and overgrown. The Lake looked nice from our room though. Breakfast bar was small and featured the same thing every day. Desk staff was very courteous. Hot tubs were not very hot. Pool area was nice though. Just needs some regular maintenance over all.
