Nice hotel conveniently located on the beach. They did a good job updating what appears to be a fairly old hotel.

Everything was awesome minus the fact that no breakfast is included unless you're a certain level rewards member? If I'm paying that much per night for a room, I'd at least like some sort of continental breakfast or something...

First time visiting Traverse City. Hotel right on the water. Beautiful venue. Hotel offered all amenities expected - would have liked a microwave. Bathroom could have been cleaner a few bugs crawling around - one in the bathtub. Restaurant staff were friendly and service very good. Getting a Starbucks in the morning was nice, but it took forever!

Hotel and staff couldn't have been more friendly and accommodating!! Thank you to all!!

This place was extremely awesome,well worth the money. The location was right on the bay water good and clean. I would highly recommend this place to anyone. This was our first trip to Traverse City and we will go back again and will stay in the same place.

Had a wonderful time in TC. Rented a jet ski and went parasailing over Lake Michigan. The room was very clean and comfortable. Loved having the pool to swim in.

Great stay! Starbucks in the hotel was a bonus! I forgot my cell phone charger and one of the clerks at the front desk let me borrow his.

Hotel & Staff very friendly. DayClub waitstaff good but some tables were ignored. The View Restaurant was excellent. Chis the bartender was excellent. Handled the bar and dinner service. Need better dessert options on menu. Like Cherry Pie or ice cream with cherry toppings, etc. In the Cherry Capital of the World and no desserts to speak of. Pools were excellent. Beach could be raked or cleaned. If there had been a better gift shop, we would have never left the grounds. Overall a very nice vacation. Would stay there again.

My wife and I had an enjoyable stay at the Holiday Inn West Bay in Traverse City. Great location, nice clean place, and friendly staff, but over $350 for a Saturday night and $200+ for Sundays and Mondays is a bit too much for a Holiday Inn. Yes, you pay for location but we've stayed in several better, more expensive locations in various cities and did not pay as much for those higher end hotels. We are glad we stayed at Holiday Inn West Bay once, but will try other less expensive lodging next time. We recommend the place, but the cost is just something to be aware of for a Holiday Inn.
