Had a great time

Great

The view was beautiful right on the Bay! Bathroom was a little cramped and could be updated a little more, but still very nice hotel. Didn’t see any vending machines if you’re looking for a little snack.

Great location! Terrific restaurant! Comfortable room. Unfortunately, the view was obstructed by a huge crack in the exterior window glass that fogged up the window. Otherwise, very enjoyable!

Nice location, but room had a square foot of wallpaper hanging loose on the wall. People talking an running in the halls until late at night.

Beautiful views and use of outdoor areas

The location of this hotel is great. It's about half a mile walk from Front Street, and right on the water (no beach at hotel, but there is a public beach very close by). The property is renovated so it feels pretty new. The only minor detail I didn't like was the bathroom in our room. It wasn't an updated one, and was so small we could barely open the door without hitting the toilet. Other than that, everything was great and comfortable. The staff is very friendly and attentive. The property has a lot of nice features including two pools, ample outdoor seating by the lake, games outside like corn hole and bocce ball, and even boat rental facilities onsite. Great spot for families. We will definitely stay here again.

Beautiful property with plenty of parking and a desirable distance from downtown. Lovely outside patio area - only suggestion would be to add trash cans outside!

There was one incredibly rude and boorish bartender at the outside bar one evening. She was very unpleasant and did her very best to embarrass my husband by yelling loudly when he didnt leave her a tip. It was an unpleasant experience in an otherwise nice stay.

Beds were very comfy and the pillows were amazing. Nice towels too. Only complaint is the showerhead. It wasn't adjustable so it sprayed over my head onto the wall.

Location was good for walking downtown. Outside pool deck/cabanas are updated. Limited amount of seating. Construction ongoing in the restaurant and outside patio with no beach access. Standard rooms are all the old Holiday Inn rooms with zero updates. Deluxe 2 queen not worth the money. Property still Covid restricted with the housekeeping but not the social distancing in the pool or bistro area. Will not recommend or return to this overpriced property.

The heated outdoor pool and igloos were very nice. Staff was great!!

Rooms were nice with a very large tv and updated bathrooms. Their was a lot of construction going on so it was hard to rate the inside. Although it obviously was updated and they were continuing to do so. However we couldn’t use the restaurant. And if we had stayed during the summer, there isn’t any beach access which I know we would have wanted.

Overall it was a fine hotel stay. We stayed one night and staff was polite. The Keurig coffee maker did not work in the room, so I went to the lobby and I had one given to me by the breakfast bar staff. Room was clean, and shower had a really nice and effective shower head. The two pools, one inside and the other outside, were very nice as well. I would stay again.

Thank you for letting us know you enjoyed our beautiful views of Grand Traverse Bay! We agree the Standard bathrooms are on the smaller side and we are continuing with renovations this winter by focusing on the smaller bathrooms on the east (Standard) side of the property. Please be sure to request a Deluxe room for your next visit, which will feature a more spacious and modern bathroom. Also, please note guests may purchase snacks and non-alcoholic beverages at our Front Desk at any time of day or night. We look forward to welcoming you to the Delamar again soon!

Thank you very much for sharing your review with us. We are glad to hear you enjoyed our property, our service, and our amenities. It sounds like you stayed in one of our Standard rooms, which have not yet been renovated but are scheduled to be worked on this winter. We have renovated the bathrooms in our Deluxe rooms; they are definitely more spacious and modern. Please be sure to ask for one of our Deluxe rooms with a renovated bathroom for your next stay. We look forward to welcoming you back to the Delamar again!

Thank you for taking the time to share your review with us. It appears that you did not get to see us at our best, and we sincerely apologize. Although delayed, our on-site Artisan Restaurant is ready to open. Our industry has been most impacted by the nationwide labor shortage, and getting everyone back to work. We are almost there now, but unfortunately, after your departure. We hope to have the opportunity to welcome you back another time so that you and your family have a chance to see what the Delamar Brand Standard truly has to offer.
