Nice place .

This is a great hotel! We especially loved being able to go out on our balcony and have our door open and have the fresh air flowing into our room! And we loved the coffee bar! No complaints whatsoever! Highly recommend this hotel!

Nice hotel for a fall color trip. Breakfast was ok.

Booked on the basis it has an indoor pool and a view. Indoor pool was closed for the time being and the view....well that was of the building housing the indoor pool.

Staff was great. Very clean.. needs a bit of a face lift.. but overall would stay there again

It was a nice place, got a room with a lake view which you could barely see and the beds were supposed to be queen but they were full

Shanty Creek was nothing short of amazing. Our honeymoon trips had been canceled 3 times due to covid so we decided to drive here. The rooms were spotless, the people were soooooo nice. Danielle at the Lakeview Restaurant was very sweet and our massage therapist at the spa Patricia was amazing! Don’t forget to visit downtown when you go on the shuttle that will drop you off and pick you up. Be wells was great, the bae tender even offered us food he was barbecuing. Torch lake was just 15 minutes away and beautiful. I can’t say enough, trust me this was a great location and I will be back!

Room was fantastic. Views were beautiful. A golfer's paradise.

Plenty to do here. Beautiful location! Would stay here again.

Rooms were nice and clean. Unfortunately I took the trip for my kids to swim in the pool to burn off some energy but the pool was closed down the day we checked in. The next morning after breakfast we didn’t have much time at all to enjoy the pool with having to check out at noon. Wish I had known about pool so I could have went to another location. Walls are also pretty thin I could hear the room next doors conversation as if they were in my room. They may have had the conjoining door open for some reason.

We were suppose to get two queens beds and got two full size beds. The hotel reminds me of the hotel out of the movie Shining.

Cool area, great view. Kids enjoyed both pools. Room was clean and had comfy beds.

The hotel was a major disappointment. They charge premium rates for mediocre facilities and dismal service. We will never stay here again and we come to the area every year.

Good restaurant, nice lake view and not far from traverse city

Bed was very uncomfortable. Walls were thin could hear everything next room. Would not recommend this place. Golf courses around the Hotel look amazing thou.

We enjoyed our stay even though it was only one night we checked right in our room had a balcony. We then took shuttle to town and had some ice cream, visited a couple stores and headed back. They had freedom festival which was going they had big inflatables,vollyball games for kids they also barbequed hamburgers and hot dogs and some other things, live music, face painting and to end the night we had a fireworks show. If we are back up north next time we will definitely stay here!
