UNBELIEVABLE

Would recommend Sun, Oct 25, 2015
I was in Traverse City on vacation to do some leaf peeping. The room was so nice, I hated to leave to go looking! The ONLY negative thing I can say is the internet was slow SOMETIME. I call it a room, it's a suite/small apartment with separate bedroom, livingroom/diningroom/kitchen. It's just amazing. The value for the money is incredible. I would not hesitate to stay there again, and I can not recommend it highly enough. It is an incredible place to stay. The people in the office are so friendly....you can't go wrong here.

The hotel doesn't have all the amenities that the bigger hotels have, but we felt safe and the hotel was clean. They offered a decent breakfast in the morning.

Spotless

Would recommend Thu, Oct 2, 2014
Was pleasantly surprised with this property. Although older, it's well-maintained, and the room was spotless. The unit was a two bedroom townhouse with a small kitchen and living room. Check in was a breeze, and the office manager was extremely helpful. I would definitely stay here again.

We will stay there again!!!

Would recommend Sat, Aug 23, 2014
A great place to stay! We have four children, so we found the room we stayed in to be delightful! The kids loved having an upstairs room with two queen beds where they were able to sleep, I loved having a room off the sitting area where I slept. The suite was very clean and fresh, and very comfortable. I nice change too having an outdoor pool, we were able to enjoy the pool without feeling the humidity of the indoor pools! When we plan our next trip to Traverse City, we will be looking at Traverse Bay Inn for our place to stay! A great experience for my whole family. Absolutely LOVED it!!!

Would recommend Thu, Jun 26, 2014
The room was clean and comfy. We arrived late but I called ahead and they had an envelope with a welcome letter and room key waiting for us when we got there. The staff in the morning was friendly and cheerful and reminded us to check out the Farmer's Market in downtown.
