Great girlfriend weekend

Used my rewards for room which was awesome price to stay. Balcony open to the beautiful waters of Grand Traverse Bay. Ideally located to get to shopping, dining and casino. Casino pick up at the hotel. Great bar and music at night. Would stay again!!

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.

Love the beds.

It was a wonderful surprise to see such a beautiful room for such a low price. Everyone was helpful in every way. My only complaint was the pool and hot tub. It was not as clean as I would like.
