This is a very quaint hotel. Our host has thought of everything extra you might need in a room. There are extra plug receptacles, a microwave, a refrigerator, books, etc. It's super clean and just like being at home. Our host was very accommodating and friendly too!

Planned a motorcycle trip that was rained out...enjoyed the sites by truck. Motel rooms are decorated nicely, older but updated, colorful sitting areas outside the rooms, 10 minute walk to downtown, small refrigerator. Only complaint... mattresses are clean but not a good quality causing us disrupted sleep.

We rode bikes from Traverse City to Frankfort and were absolutely delighted with this quaint inn. Booking was a snap. The room was very comfortable and clean. While this is not a 5 star Manhattan hotel, it is just perfect for a happy stay.

Selected Frankfort as location to visit from a Michigan driving tour website, the little town was in full holiday mode and the location of the Bay Port Lodging added to our wonderful experience. LuAnn and her staff were helpful, warm and generous of sharing their local knowledge. The charming environment put us in a relaxing mood from the moment we stepped into our room. Two days could have been a week as far as comfort goes. Should we ever be in the area again we would happily return.
