Traveling through and decided to make a stop, because I am a Marriott reward person I stayed here. I got a queen wall bed suite lake view. Beautiful room, full fridge, microwave, stove top and coffee maker. No complaints about room decor or bathroom....the bed was horrible and pillows flat, very uncomfortable. I would stay here again just not in... More

Stayed at the Inn at Bay Harbor for a recent business meeting. The staff couldn't be nicer and the food at the meeting was great, especially the breakfasts. The rooms had a bit of tired look, that didn't match the charm of the Inn. In fact, the outside of the main building has peeling paint giving a bit of a... More

This was our 1st stay at the Inn at Bay Harbor, and we will return. While it cost a little more than other 'run of the mill destinations' their service, quality of rooms and their views were extraordinary. The staff was fabulous!. For example, early one morning I couldn't find any coffee as it was 5:00 AM. Tina (front desk... More

We were here getting away due to my father recently passing away. The woman who checked us in was exceptional and made us feel special. When we checked out she remembered we were staying due to my dad dying and she gave me a lavender candle to remember him by. She was so sweet. The hotel is beautiful and we... More

We stay at Marriott properties a lot (platinum elite). This is one of the best ever. The staff - everyone - was friendly and very helpful. The room was much better than expected! It had full kitchen and dining facilities as well as a generous balcony, bedroom, etc. The location is beautiful. It was a great late summer getaway -... More

The Inn at Bay Harbor is a favorite. I love the tower parlor suites. The balcony over the bay is so nice. The campfire and smores at night is a great touch. Wonderful bicycling nearby. We also love the hammocks. A beautiful, relaxing place.

oh my goodness...I can't tell you how much I LOVED this hotel. First, my room was unlike most hotel rooms. It was a wonderful combination of beachy, shabby chic and elegance all rolled up into one.

This place was great. The staff was so friendly and helpful. They have a shuttle service that will take you from the hotel to downtown for lunch or dinner free of charge. The outdoor pool and hot tub was nice.
