When you’re planning a trip to Flint MI, you want to choose the most comfortable place to stay while enjoying all of the many things to do in Flint Michigan. Fortunately, Flint and Genesee County have a variety of hotels, bed and breakfasts, and vacation rentals.
We’ve sorted through them all for you so that it’s easier to find the best lodging & hotels Flint Michigan offers to suit your vacation needs!
Flint Michigan Hotel & B&B Options
The first thing you’ll notice about the hotels Flint Michigan has is that they’re all big chain hotels. The Hilton Garden Inn Flint Downtown, Fairfield Inn & Suites Flint Grand Blanc, and Hampton Inn and Suites Flint/Grand Blanc are just a few.
While there’s nothing wrong with these Flint Michigan hotel locations, a bed and breakfast can offer a more intimate and unique lodging experience. We found one in Flint and another in Fenton that have outstanding rooms and amenities.
Knob Hill Bed & Breakfast
Just west of downtown Flint Michigan, Knob Hill Bed & Breakfast is a 1926 home that was empty for six years before it became a bed and breakfast in 2013.
Under the management of Diana Phillips and Allan Griggs, the home has become known for gracious hospitality, timeless elegance and luxury, and exceptional food. The innkeepers specialize in romantic getaways, small group retreats, and other small gatherings.
Knob Hill has 6 rooms and suites, some of which have 3 bedrooms. Each room is uniquely furnished and designed, but all of them have fireplaces and sitting areas of some sort. The bed and breakfast serves a gourmet breakfast every morning and has a cheese and wine reception every evening.
Wolcott House Bed & Breakfast
Even though it’s not in Flint, we have to recommend Wolcott House Bed & Breakfast. Located in downtown Fenton, this historic Italianate-style home was built sometime around 1900.
The original owners were a prominent family — the Wolcotts — and also owned the city’s Wolcott Mill. Now, Sean and Elaine Rosekrans welcome you into their stately, historic red brick inn, which has won several awards over the years.
Wolcott House has 3 gorgeous guest rooms that each has its own distinct decor. Every morning, the hosts serve a gourmet breakfast, and you can arrange ahead of time for a four-course Victorian tea session.
The grounds feature a Train Garden with five G-scale train tracks that lead to the Wolcott Bros. Circus, Wolcott Lumber Camp, Wolcott Mines, Lake Wolcott, and the Tiny Town of Wolcott.
