Our two night stay was fantastic! Perfect “up north” getaway. The hotel is very well maintained and clean. Rooms are spacious and well lit. The hotel is within a 3 minute driving distance to downtown harbor springs and walking distance to the lake. We are definitely coming back! If you are expecting the ritz Carlton then go to Florida! This hotel was the essence of what a northern Michigan hotel should be!
Housekeeping was marginal. They didn't replenish disposable cups in the room, didn't replace empty toilet paper, did replenish other items. The air conditioning didn't work well. The lamp was broken. The lady tending the breakfast area was rude and had a horrible attitude. Front desk people were great - friendly, helpful and fun to talk with.
I really liked staying here. The room was so much bigger than expected! Beds were comfy. We had an end room and loved all the windows!
Classic style and comfortable rooms. We love to get the suite for the four of us. (Two boys, 6&8). The only problem with the room is the lack of black out shades in the front room.
The Colonial Inn is one of my favorite places to stay. It has the charm of a historical hotel with all the modern comforts. Rooms are always clean and inviting, and the beds are comfortable. It's also just a short walk/drive from the downtown Harbor Springs area.
