Booked on Hotels.com. The room was dark and dirty, Not at all what we signed up for. Signed up for a King bed. Manager stated they have NO KING BEDS. Went thru a lenghty hassle to get out of staying without being charged. Do Not Recommend it. Went elsewhere.

Booked on Expedia and when I went to check in OWNER said nothing availiable! I booked on Expedia a month ago as was assured there were rooms available. The owner was holding out for tourists to pay more than what I booked for. The owner is very rude, no apologies- NOTHING!!! Also, my sister has stayed here before- BED BUGS... More

1. Feces in the stool when we checked in. 2. Substance on carpet in front of bathroom moist and not cleaned. 3. No maid service after first day. 4. Desk clerk spoke broken English and understood a limited amount of English. Chose only because every hotel in area booked. Rates reflect a 3-4 star hotel. Reality is a half star... More

We stumbled upon this hotel after having a nightmare of an experience at another inn and finding every hotel in the Traverse City vicinity either completely booked or attached to a $200+ price tag. We just needed a place to rest for the night and this hotel worked out perfectly. The gentleman that checked us in spoke limited English but... More

I called to tell them our arrival time and that we had dogs. He (an older gentleman from India) seemed very befuddled and said he had no reservation for me. He also said that they did not allow dogs. He said he would call me back in 5 minutes. This was a very crowded resort area so I did not... More

I stayed here last year with my gf due to the high traverse city hotel costs thinking it wouldn't of been bad..well I was wrong. The room we stayed in had no heat or a/c, TV was black ad white, there were holes in the sheets and tub was stained horribly. The front desk guy seemed to be a decent... More

This hotel is a dump!! I would not send my worst enemy to stay at this motel! Save your money and go elsewhere!! The other guests that pinned their opinions were not joshing you. TRUST ME!! There are nicer hotels just outside Traverse City. However, all the hotels were filled because of a festival. We traveled to the next closest... More

I booked a room for my partner and his college buddy for a last minute weekend trip north to the Traverse City Film Festival as everything closer to TC was either booked solid or going for $500 for two nights. It was 12:15 am and I needed to get a hold of my partner semi-emergently (nothing earthshaking but it was... More

So, we stayed here during our Trip to the Cherry Bomb Lacrosse tournament in Traverse City 7/26 & 7/27/13. It looked nothing like the website pictures (http://www.quality-motel.com/); though the page does give the correct address for this property. I new the rate wasn't too bad, and figured, simple quality. We checked in at 10pm (the rest of our group got... More

This has to be the worse motel I have ever stayed at. The motel website photos were taken from a different hotel as nothing looked as the photos did, false advertising. The paint was peeling off the walls the furniture from the 70's was falling apart, you could feel the springs through the mattress. This motel is in complete disrepair.... More
