Just for Sleep and a Shower

Basic hotel if you're not spending a whole lot of time in it. Rooms are clean but dated. Hallways can use a rehab. Staff is efficient but can use a class on how to smile every now and then. Housekeeping is good.

Copper Falls for a good steak. Apache Trout Grill for good fish. Both places charge tourist premium prices.

Weekend getaway

This was our first time to Traverse City and we booked this hotel after reading reviews from others. Considering location and great staff, this hotel is excellent value. Checking in and out was super easy, its located across from the bay so walking to the beach is definitely doable, and its only minutes from downtown where all the action is. We had booked a wine tour prior to coming up which we highly recommend. Overall great trip!

Breakfast a Plus

We had a room with a hot-tub and since we were not interested we wish there had been a cover for the tub so we didn't need to look at it since it took up a large space in room. The furniture was a bit old and chipped but the breakfast offered many choices and was definitely a plus. Also, we were happy that room came with a refrigerator.

Outdated, run down, unfriendly night staff

This hotel is very ran down and needs serious updating. No refrigerators or microwaves in the rooms, which havent had furniture updated since the 70's. The night staff, was very unfriendly as well as unkempt themselves. There are tons of other hotels in this area that offer way more for your money. Breakfast consisted of a waffle maker and toast, but, there wasnt even enough for the number of guests staying there.

Bland but functional

Totally nondescript or notable in any way, but I was only there one night. Fulfilled its function of providing a place to sleep and shower. There's even breakfast.

Decent place if you're passing through

This hotel was okay, mainly because I only needed a place to sleep & shower. The room smelt musty and the furnishings need to be updated. The room was clean enough, but scuffed furnishings gave a bad first impression.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

Inexpensive place to crash that's not too far from downtown Traverse City. Three restaurants and beach access within walking distance of the hotel.
