Good Enough

Given the prices in Traverse City in July, this was pretty good. The lobby and especially the elevator and hallways could use some freshening up but the actual bedroom was a pleasant surprise. The bathroom needed some work - the fan was very noisy and the shower never got above lukewarm but good toiletries and the hotel was clean with a friendly staff. The location was convenient enough - not downtown or on the water but on a direct road to the downtown and waterfront. Breakfast? Not too inspiring but it will do in a pinch.

Ok for travel

I stayed just for one night during the week. Arrived in the evening and checkout out early morning. The room and breakfast was ok. It's was worth it for one night, probably wouldn't stay for a long period of time.

just okay

Nothing to be excited about. It serves the wine weekender who won't be in the room much.

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Outdated, run down, unfriendly night staff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.
