very good for the price

My husband and I wanted to get away for a couple days, but to do it cheap. This was a very good place for the price! We paid a little extra to get a jacuzzi room. It wasn't anything too nice or fancy. The room was basic and there is only an outdoor pool unfortunately. But it was very cheap, close to town, great staff and comfy beds. Would definitely go back.

You get what you pay for...

The amenities were minimal at this hotel, but as described. The location to downtown was convenient and easy. The room was the biggest disappointment. The odor reminded me of an ashtray despite the no smoking placards that were found in the room. The beds sagged in the middle. It appeared that the carpet hadn't been vacuumed in quite some time. However, the bathroom was very clean. The weather was chilly during the week I stayed, resulting in my room hovering in the high 50's to low 60's... The hotel had decided not to start up their heating system (brrrrrrrr) in case the weather warmed back up. Breakfast was minimal, but provided that quick bite before heading out for the day. I would be hard pressed to return.

Dining tip: Short drive from hotel

The Grand Traverse Pie Co. has some not-to-be-missed pie. It is worth going out of your way to get some.

Cheapest option in TC

Bouncy beds Was no heat on a cold September. They couldn't go back and forth between heat or AC, so it was stuck on AC in about high 30 degree temperatures.... that sucked.

Over night stay awaiting flight next day.

Room was clean. Staff was pleasant. They had me sign agreement not to smoke on sidewalks in or around rooms. But on my way to room there was 2 people smoking in front of walkway to my room & across the parking lot next to someone else's room. I thought the rooms were over priced but was cheaper than most others in the area.

A Good Nights Sleep

Overall, we had a great experience. Friendly employees, very clean room & decent breakfast included. We would definitely stay here again, very close to downtown and the pool is nice. I love the impatiens planted on all the railings.

nice, clean room for the money

The overall experience was good. The staff could've been a little friendlier, a little more accommodating. They weren't quite rude, but they were a little bruske. The room was plain but nice and clean. The beds, pillows, and linens were comfortable. The set up of the room and the location of the motel were both quite convenient. We think it was a good room for the price.

disappointingl

There was a very gross black ring of something around the jacuzzi tub drain, as well as suds that came up when I filled it. I the. tried to shower off and couldn't get any hot water out. It was a rather disappointing experience
