We needed a place to stay while visiting for a funeral. We couldn't be more pleased with this property and will be back when the weather is warm. Instead of a regular hotel room, we had an "apartment", complete with living room, fireplace, kitchenette that included all necessary supplies (even wine glasses and a dishwasher)! The bedroom has a generous...

This is really a nice looking hotel when you drive up. Although, walking in the room was unfortunately not at all the same. Everything, except the refrigerator and living area TV, was extremely out-dated. Wallpaper even had bubbles, stains and nicks, as well as being very old. Rooms are large, as this is a condo style hotel. Beds were okay,...

Thanks for taking the time to give us a review. These condos are individually owned so not all units are in "Dire need of updating. We have plenty of units that have been totally renovated. You can book your rooms from our website and can look at each room individually and make reservations for a particular room. Just go to...

My husband and I had a wonderful time staying at the Water Street Inn. We stayed in condo #310 and it was absolutely gorgeous. The condo was updated and extremely clean. The view was priceless. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. We will definitely recommend to our friends and surely be back again!

Very nice, very clean hotel. Staff is excellent. Each unit is individually owned so some are more updated than others. One can go on-line, review units, select a unit, and ask for that specific room when making a reservation. There is a beach and coin laundry, but no other amenities; e.g. pool, restaurant (ea unit has a kitchen), etc.

Gorgeous view! Friendly staff. Perfect location; we only drove our car once. Stayed in 215-loved having all of the extra Windows and view of water & boats. Room could use some updates, but the extra space & Windows trump that in my book. Already planning the next weekend there.

While planning a weekend family getaway, we first decided we wanted to jet ski on a Northern Michigan lake, no one lake in particular. After reading reviews of all those available, we chose Boyne Watersports, both for it's high rankings and it's proximity to other area attractions. The fine folks at Boyne Watersports offered their recommendations for places to stay;...

We've been here a number of times now and appreciate the proximity of walking around Boyne City, watching sunset over Lake Charlevoix and enjoying the co.forts of home. Outfitted kitchen, king bed, and jacuzzi tub!

This place is a "must stay" if you want to relax. It's in walking distance to shops and restaurants and a wonderful little chocolate shop. The people are nice, the room was quiet. I loved being in a home atmosphere as opposed to a hotel room. The price was reasonable. If I am ever up this way again, this will...

We LOVE Water Street Inn and will definitely return! We were pleasantly surprised at how nice the accommodations were. Beautiful decor. Fireplace. High end appliances. Beds were very comfortable with linens to match. Comfort all the way. We arrived about eight in the evening so the sun had already gone down. Room 107 was located right near the water. The...
