Exactly as promised - an honest night's stay

This hotel doesn't pretend to be anything other than what it is - a clean, decent, and friendly place to stay. We blew into town for an overnighter and didn't need the amenities that a high-priced, waterfront location offered. The HoJo was just right for us!

You have to try 7 Monks Tap House - the best food and drink in T.C. and after four trips there - have never been disappointed!

remodeled area

We stayed in the newly remodeled area It's fine, but during the stay, the second bed had old sheets, the sink was loose and the tiled shower puddles water (all construction and maid). The front staff was great as well as the location. We would and probably will stay again.

Shopping tip: Short drive from hotel

Shopping in downtown Traverse City is fun. Lots of Up North places as well as great wineries, bars, breweries, and lots of Good Eats.

Comfy clean room and nice staff made for a great value.

Comfortable bed and modern shower at a great price. Checked in late and was greeted by friendly staff and an offer of a fresh cup of hot coffee or tea. Our room looked like no one had ever stayed there before. If you are looking for a clean, comfortable room, this is the place. If you are looking for a big breakfast buffet and more amenities, then you'll need to spend more money and go elsewhere. Thanks for a great nights sleep, we'll be back to stay again!

Check online with the Old Mission wineries, they offer several events during the off season. We had a great time at the Great Macaroni & Cheese Bake-Off.

Great Purchase, Great Price

We stayed at this hotel long before Howard Johnson took over this place. Great upgrades on the rooms and the addition of the breakfast room are fantastic!

Not so great

It was a nice large room; however there is no privacy for changing if you want unless you go into where the toilet is and there is not much room in there for that. Also, we were on the first floor and you couldn't open your curtains for daylight since there were no sheers to just block people from seeing in clearly. We had to keep curtains closed the whole time. Was a little musty smelling. The air conditioner dripped the whole time.
