Great place to stay!

We just needed a quiet place to sleep in Traverse City and got so much more. The hotel is right on a beautiful beach...we opened our balcony door and listened to the waves all night. Breakfast was way better than "continental" as they advertise: biscuits and gravy and make-your-own waffles! Never heard a peep from the room and the mattress was probably the best I've ever slept on in a hotel anywhere. We will definitely return.

Unbeatable location for the price

On reservation, requested a King Size Bed, but ended up with two double beds. [...] but other than that, the room was very nice.

Park Shore Resore

We were in town for local bike races. Hotel staff were helpful, rooms was clean and ready when we arrived. Quiet hotel with wonderful views of Traverse City Sunsets over East Bay. Close to downtown and restaurants. Beach was clean and swimming area was nice. Close to state park beach if you want more activities. Overall wonderful experience and would stay here again.
