Just an average hotel. Very clean. Front desk host at check in was kind of grumpy on arrival but nothing too horrible. The pool area was beautiful and breakfast was average. All in all it was a good stay for something simple.

Had our employee Christmas party. All my bartenders and myself had a night out in Bay City. We had a great time. The Comfort Inn did a lovely remodel job. It was wonderful. Nice employees and a perfect location. We will be back.

As above. You can always count on this facility to provide a nice, clean and comfortable room. Location is nice too and within walking distance from downtown restaurants and bars. It’s not intended to be a five star hotel. But if you have business in bay city, I suggest it. More

We spent 4 nights in Bay City over a long New Years weekend. We were visiting our daughter, son-in-law and grand children. The hotel is really beautiful. We stayed in a king suite. It was roomy and well appointed. The price was very reasonable for a downtown, riverfront

Thank you for your response. The location is close to the fireworks, and it could be a good place to view the fireworks. Sadly, for us, it was not. Our experience here was terrible.( I posted a review of the hotel, and if you want more details, please read my review.) Since the "Question and Answer" section appears separately from the reviews, though, I wanted to make sure that what happened to me doesn't happen to anyone else. I would advise anyone who decides to stay here to get to the hotel early to be sure to get a parking spot in the small hotel lot--they ran out of parking spaces, and forced guests to park across a busy street in an unlit, poorly maintained parking lot. (If you need a handicapped space, be aware they only have two spaces by their doors. They were both taken when I arrived.) Arriving early should prevent this ordeal. If I had known parking was an issue, I would've arrived right at the beginning of check-in time. Once you have parked, find a good place to sit in the little park just behind the hotel. From what I could see, it was a great location for seeing the fireworks without any problems. I only wish we had been able to get to it. (Due to our parking ordeal I was unable to walk to it. People who are not handicapped wouldn't have this problem. It's fairly close, although there is a road without a traffic signal between the park and the hotel.)

Yes, the river is very accessible. There is a park on both sides of the river, with sidewalks in the bridge crossing over the river. I am aware of some shops on Center St just two small blocks away to the north of the hotel, along with a number of restaurants too. Other restaurants were nearby according to the person working to lobby. There is no real outside space for enjoying a cocktail. There was a bench near the lobby door, but I suspect that was for smokers. I did not see a picnic area or garden area with seating.
