We enjoyed our night there. Nice room on the main floor. Parking right outside our door. Great patio to sit out on & enjoy Grand Traverse Bay & nice beach area. Our room was very quiet & provided a good nights sleep. Front desk clerk was really nice and very helpful with my questions. We will be sure to stay... More

Friendly staff. Good location. Good view of the bay. Disappointed by the quality for the price....so overall just OK. A short drive to downtown. We'd also hoped the pool would have been heated and left open as some other hotels in the area do (October visit.)

I found a great deal for a quick couple of nights midweek. I thought the building and rooms were very tired with peeling paint, scuffed up walls, and lack of general maintenance but for what I paid it was not an issue. Had I paid over $200 a night for it, I would not have been happy. It was very... More

It had everything we needed with a great view. Yes, it isn't all brand new and shiny but none of that bothered us. It was clean, staff was friendly and the price was good compared to other options.

Excellent view of the bay and the staff is second to none. The entire building is in need of a face lift, very dated and almost shabby in places. We did not like the tub in the main room. The room was very clean. The staff was amazing, friendly and full of info about the city.
