Close to it all!

This hotel was close enough to everything without being right in the middle of all kinds of traffic and chaos. We were 5 minutes from downtown and 2 minutes from the road that rides in the middle of both penninsula's. When you walk out the front door you have a view of the gorgeous lake which was blues and greens. Public beach was a minute away too. a nice walk, a little bit of a walk though. We will definatley stay there again. We went to the winery's, dinner at the microbrewery above kilkennys bar. Steak was ok, pricey for the quality not being so great. The bar downstairs was awesome. Great music and diverse crowd. Went to holiday inn for dancing in their bar. Music was the best. We will be back.

Disappointing, at best

This is an average motel that is well past it's prime. The furniture had stains, the bedding and towels are thread bare and the air-conditioning, even without a particularly warm August day, never really cooled the room. The front desk staff was pleasant but can not make up for the shortcomings in basic expectations. We went to get breakfast at 8:45am and many items were gone and refills in sight. I encourage you to keep going. The price was higher due to film festival activities in town but should have been about one-fifth of the assessed charge. Very disappointing and will have us staying further north in places like Charlevoix going forward.

Nice place for the family and you can take you dog too!

Very Nice. I was with 2 senior women and we stayed in a room with very close access to an elevator, which was perfect. Happy that there was a Night Light on the bottom of the blow dryer for night time. We got up multiple times during the evening and the night light was very helpful and a needed necessity for us. The breakfast in the morning was wonderful (except for the orange juice). Happy that there were hard boiled eggs as well as other selected items.

Time-saving tip: Short drive from hotel

AAA office very near to Hotel, just west of the Hotel on the same side of the street. Lots for information and maps available from AAA. The Hotel had lots of local tourist broachers and information in the lobby.

Not what it's cracked up to be

The UGLY: The rooms REEK of cigarettes & that horrible stuff they use to try cover it up. The pillows were lumpy and uncomfortable. The BAD: ZERO bay view unless you stand off to one side in the parking lot & peer between two other buildings. The location is quite far down from all the main stuff in Traverse City so you can't leave your car and walk around town. The GOOD: Comfortable Beds and free breakfast

Summer Vacation

The hotel has a good location, very close to restraunts, stores, and across the street from the bay. The staff was very friendly, and helpful. The room was clean, but the beds were small and not queen size as they said, but rather full size. Bathroom was small, but we were rarely in the room. The breakfast buffet was very good.

not a bad overnight destination

The staff was nice and the breakfast was extensive. The only downfall was that none of their rooms had a fridge or microwave. Also the mattresses weren't very comfortable but I still slept ok.

The Mexican restaurant next door is meant for drinking not eating. The food was over priced and not good at all.
