Overall good experience, room was clean and staff was friendly.

We had a great stay. Especially happy with how clean our room was. Hope to stay there this summer !

we had a wonderful time. Our stay was very good. The staff were friendly and helpful!

We booked thru Orbitz and reservation delay as had not shown up in the system. Francis was very easy to work with and took my contact information while we went for dinner and called when the room etc was ready. Liked the location and beach.

Very nice hotel, staff was very helpful in our visiting the local area. Room was very comfortable.

Nice place to stay but could be much cleaner. Balconies full of bugs and spiders...cigarette butts overflowing ashtrays near entrance. ..nice employees weak breakfast offering...small pillows

Great location on the beach, comfortable rooms. Staff very welcoming and responsive.

Had a great time with Grandchildren. Beach was nice, room was nicely decorated and comfortable. The staff was exceptional. Only thing missing is an on sight restaurant.

We were able to get a night last minute to extend our TC stay and it was a great resort! The staff was wonderful, room was clean and beach like and breakfast was included the next day! Can't beat being a step away from the beach!

Desk staff very helpful giving directions and information for visiting the area.

Great experience and really friendly staff and awesome access to the beach

We always come in the fall for the colors, and the wine tasting route. Great location on the beach very close to town, and easy access to wine tasting route. Breakfast OK, room was great with Jacuzzi, and indoor heated pool & hot tub.

Had a great stay. Breakfast was awesome enjoyed it with a great group of friends.

Very nice place right on the beach, very close to downtown.

The Breakfast wasnt great, and it was super crowded. We usually stay at Brio down the street, that has more amenities for the same price.

excellent location. great stay, so-so bfast. The only thing I really didn't care for was, they had a water trampoline that was in the water right off the beach for rent, no one was renting it, they yelled at anyone who got on it. The problem was it had an anchor with about 30 ft. of rope. twice my kids stepped on it, could of been very dangerous. when I complained, nothing was done.

I would recommend this hotel to anyone who is planning to vacation in Traverse City. With the exception of not regularly emptying the waste baskets, housekeeping and room cleanliness were very good. Room was clean and spacious. Placement of the TV restricted viewing from the beds only, a minor annoyance. Parking and access to US 31 very good. Beach strip is prepped every morning and is pretty clean.

Start with the check in..young lady was friendly and polite. View for the beach was unbelievable and was within walking distance to great restaurants. Our room was clean, located in the same corridor for the breakfast, had good running hot water but the beds were old and had lumps and bumps. That's the only thing that wasn't do pleasant and made our much needed rest to be not so restful. Check out lady was also very friendly and polite

I just love this hotel. I have been there for soccer tournaments also.the staff is friendly,the breakfast is good and the view is breathtaking , looking forward to go back on August.

Every staff member I encountered was very nice and helpful. Beautiful resort.

We appreciate your feedback. It is wonderful to hear that the employees were great during your stay. We do a preventative treatment for spiders and bugs as both are drawn to the water. We have passed along your feedback to see if this is something we could put on a more frequent rotation. Thank you for staying with us!
