In town again to ride the Pere-Marquette bike trail. Check in is at 3 but when I made reservations they said to check and see if a room was ready early so we could check in before the ride. It wasn't but they are always kind enough to let us park in the lot and we changed in the hotel...

I'm not sure what it is about the Doherty - maybe it reminds me of hotels from when I was younger. Maybe it's always seeing the same faces (including the owner) when we check in and out. Or possibly it's that everything always goes 'right' when we're there (nice room, great service, nice value, good food.....). Either way, it's a...

The room was described as out-dated but, clean. I thought the room was both, it did have a retro charm which I enjoyed. The room was in the old section of the hotel, 4th floor. After my class reunion night, I came room it was cool perfect for summer. Through the night, I awoke to the air conditioner making noises...

We left the kids at home and met another couple at the Doherty for a Beercation. Great location for this activity. Four bars, plus the lobby bar, within a couple blocks walk. We had a great time!! Ruckles Pier Bar, The Evening News (Darts and pool table) Brewin' on McEwan, and Four Leaf Brewing were our stops! Room was $101,...

Stayed while attending a family reunion. Clean, dated, courteous staff. Good food and convenient location in Claire. We are return visitors. Over the years many of the clan think back fondly of staying at the Doherty. Close to Cops and Dohnuts for good coffee and treats too.

Stayed at this hotel, taking advantage of their Golf package for over 20 years. The hotel updated several times in the first 10 years or so, and just recently they did some work adding an outdoor eating area. The hotel has the best breakfast, rooms are clean, pool is great, hot tub is great, the pool area is always a...

The breakfast Layouts were GREAT! So many selections. At dinner, we really enjoyed the salad bar. The food was always really good as was the...

Positives: ideal location in Clare. Moderate prices for a regular room. Friendly staff. We thought the restaurant and bar were terrific. Very nice terrace outside the restaurant. The room was clean and comfortable with a good bed. Indoor pool. Strong WiFi. Negatives: lobby looks a bit worn. Kind of icky colors and strange lighting in the hall outside our room,...

The location is great for people driving toward the upper part of Michigan. We drive there in the evening and then we have a short drive to our destination after a great breakfast in the morning. It is hard to review the Doherty unless you understand the history of it. It is actually two very different hotels sharing the same...

Spent two nights at the Doherty for a graduation. We ate breakfast because of the homemade hash. Hubby said it was wonderful. The rooms were nice, nothing fancy but very clean. Had coffee maker and frig in ours. Nice linens. We ended up going to the bar on the main floor later and I had the french onion soup. It...
