Was happy with my recent stay here. Check in was easy and the owners were very nice. This is an older motel, but the room was large and we were comfortable here. They do have a nice pool (outside) for guests. Location in this small town was good and it was quiet here.

Very disappointed with cancellation policy. I booked for two nights. We canned or plans and stayed one night. I checked in Sunday night and requested refund Monday morning. Owner denied refund. I would suggest only booking one night at a time.

Older but clean

Nice little place - close to where we needed to be. Owner called a few days in advance to make sure we were coming - haven't had that before!

M 22 Color Tour 2015.

Pros: I liked the look of the hotel and I have always liked Bear Lake. The reviews said the rooms were very clean - and our room was spotless.
Cons: Nothing that I can think of.
Location: Easy to find, a couple of good restaurants and comfortable beds.
My friend and I needed a one-night, two bed room for Saturday night that was Up North Michigan for our Fall Color Tour. We did not want to spend a lot of money, but wanted a nice place just to sleep and clean up, close to, if not on, M22 in Michigan. Most hotels/motels were booked solid as it was supposed to be good weather on Sunday and the colors were in peak. Bella Vista Inn suited our needs perfectly. The manager was very pleasant and helpful. The motel is just across the street from Bear Lake and is very well kept and comfortable with free Wi-Fi.
