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.

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

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

Family Getaway

The room was very small. The air conditioning was loud and didn't work. There was great "what to do information" in the room. The hotel was easy to find and very quiet. A good price for the location.

Spur of the moment get-away

The room was spacious and the jet tub was fantastic, however the bed was very hard and the light in the bathroom didn't work. Great value for an unexpected trip, however, I don't think we could have been there more than one night.

okay

It was not a bad hotel but I was sad when I found out that there were hotels in the area that were newer and had specials going on. Overall though it was nice.

Adequate, but nothing special

I stayed at the Knights In for the last night in a one-week trip so that I could be close to the Traverse City airport. The room was quiet, in spite of being close to a busy avenue. Everything was clean and everything worked. The wireless connection was free and provided decent speed. The manager on duty when I checked in was friendly and professional. For one night, it was fine, but I wouldn't stay there long term because the rooms are small, decor is dated and somewhat depressing and the space for doing after-hours business paperwork is very limited.

ITS AN OK PLACE

THIS WAS A PLACE TO SLEEP, THE CONTINENTAL BREAKFAST LET A LOT TO BE DESIRED, NOT DELUXE AS DESCRIBED IN THE BOOK. BATHROOM SMALL AND NO HOOKS ANYWHERE TO PUT THINGS WHILE SHOWERING.

Good location, very clean

WE found this to be a very clean and well located motel in Traverse City. We especially liked the very easy access to Old Mission Peninsula and it's miles of quiet roads for cycling. The outdoor pool area was small but was clean and private. Other positives were the comfortable breakfast area and helpful front desk staff. Overall, a very good value in a budget motel.

The Omelette Shoppe is just a short walk for great breakfasts if you choose to skip the complementary breakfast at the motel.

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.
