Great Stay

Friendly staff, perfect waterfront location, a little outside the downtown area but well worth it. The beds were very very comfy as well! The bar was fun with a live DJ and the pool is nice too, but I liked being right on the beach with great fire pits and benches there too!

Average for TVC

This was our second time at this hotel. Everyone is helpful and the service was great. The one thing we missed was the 1/2 off appetizers during happy hour, consequently we only visited the lounge once during our stay.

Great location, friendly and clean

It was a great location off us 31 right on traverse bay and close to food and shops. Had a friendly staff and room was clean and spacious. We enjoyed beach view on 4th floor. Bond fires each night were a great touch to the experience.

Thought it would be better...

We got a pretty good deal on the room knowing that the view would be facing the parking lot not the water. The noise from the road, however, was unbearable at night. The worst part was actually that my husband and I both had really bad allergies in the room! My husband doesn't even have seasonal allergies but he was incredibly uncomfortable and I was worse with extremely itchy eyes and throat. As soon as we left the hotel it cleared up!

Never again...

Hotel is dirty and front desk staff is rude and disinterested. Witnessed an argument between another guest and the hotel manager. Did not even service the room so we ended up leaving early and going to another hotel.
