Perfectly adequate

Would recommend Wed, Jul 15, 2015
We booked very late for 3&4 July so the rate was very high for a HJ. We were in town for the Cherry Festival. Our room was always clean and well stocked with fresh towels. Breakfast had limited items compared to other inclusive continental breakfasts but was fresh and plenty available.

Comfortable Stay

Would recommend Thu, Jun 11, 2015
Stayed at the Howard Johnson Of Traverse City for one night. Nice and fairly clean place. I did find someone's socks by the bed and returned them to the Front Desk. The non-smoking room was truly clean and no smoking smell (unlike some hotels that only advertise non-smoking). Good stay overall.

Awesome Deal

Would recommend Sat, May 30, 2015
We came to this hotel in the off season and it was so cheap!! We were thinking about coming back some time in July, but the rates had tripled! Early May was the best time for us to come. I would definitely book a room here again if I were staying in Traverse City

One night stay

Would recommend Thu, Mar 26, 2015
Great hotel for the price! My son and I stayed here when he had an early doctor appointment the next day. I had forgotten some paper work for the appointment and had to have my husband fax it to me. The front desk staff was very helpful with this! Room was clean and comfortable.

1 NIGHT GET AWAY

Would recommend Sun, Jan 18, 2015
This place gives you the value for your money. The lady at the front desk was very fiendly. Upgraded our room at no extra cost. Ignore the swimming pool, it is practically non-existent (unless you are willing to plunge into dried leaves and mud in the water.) Overall, good experience. Breakfast is the standard free breakfast you get with hotel stays - cereal, milk, bread, bagels, orange juice, coffee. Nothing out of the box.

Holiday Trip

Would recommend Tue, Dec 30, 2014
This is the second year we have stayed in this hotel while in the area visiting relatives during the Holidays. The staff and room were as nice as last year. I suspect its the Summer crowd that gives this a low rating because its really a deal for the money and area and time of the year.
