Our room on the 2nd floor was spacious with a nice view of the lake. We appreciated having a gas ficeplace in the room and a balcony to sit outside during the sunny days. We found the staff helpful and courteous. Montague is a small town, so we ventured out into Whitehall for shopping. The guys drove to Muskegon for...

Even though it's only 40 minutes away from our house, we always enjoy staying there. Very relaxing, great view, and different town and atmosphere. Staff is very friendly and you can relax on the balcony or hot tub or in-room fireplace.

Just a quaint little place with a beautiful feel and lovely view. A little off the beaten path, but a nice change of pace. For the same dollar, you get a private hot tub and fireplace in your room. Great value

Very disappointed. I booked 6 mos. in advance and got a look at a roof for being first to book for the night I did. It felt awful Additionally, as nice as the room and bath were, I had to call the desk at 11pm to ask the manager to stop visiting so loud so I could go to sleep!...

We were very happy with The Weathervane Inn. Everything was super clean and it was a very fast check in and check out. The only thing I might change is adding a little bit to the breakfast ( meat/protein) but it was free so I am not really complaining. We would go back again.

Be prepared in advance that they will charge your CC upon arrival for a $100.00 "incidental" fee. However, this hotel has no incidentals, such as on site restaurant, so I do not know why they feel they can charge you $100 upon arrival. The city view room was nice and big, with a good bed.

Thank you for staying with us and we are glad that you enjoyed your room and your stay.

First time to the area and we found the other chain options around the area not as well rated so we took a flier on the Weathervane. We had a lovely stay with no issues.

We returned to this hotel for the second time. It features a view of a marina, whirlpool tub, double headed shower and it is very clean. Renovations continue so our carpet was brand new.
