nice room

Everything was very nice. Great location, view of beach, comfortable room and access to the bar and restaurant. I just wish the pool would have been available. It was closed and needing a part.

Room Location

We've stayed at the Park Shore many times, but not booked thru ______. We were put in the room we had once before and objected and were given a better located room. We requested a change this time and were told this is the room they use for discount reservations. The room is on the second floor. The view is of the first floor gravel roof, probably the least desirable room in the hotel.

Good stay

Nothing too exciting, but an $80.00 room in traverse city on the east bay at the peak of fall colors is a great deal. Room was clean, smelled fresh. Nice bed for my difficult back. Did not use any other services there, spent our time wine tasting and wandering downtown. Would go back if the rates were good.

Booking through you made things so easy it was a bit shocking. First time user. I am hooked. The stay at Park Shore was a good experience. A very nice place to stay. We plan to return for a winter visit.

Pearl's in Elk Rapids is a hidden treasure. If you like good food with a cajun twist, this place is a must for your dining list.

Great location for the price

This was our second time at this hotel and will be returning. Great price for a quick fall get-a-way. Great location and view. Nice little lobby with coffee and juice in the morning.

If you plan on visiting the wineries, go to the ones on Old Mission Peninsula. Close by, great views and wineries are easy to find.
