when I got settled in the room and went to use the toilet, I noticed there was stuff in it! I went to flush and the bowl almost overflowed. the lady at the desk came down and had to plunge it. a few times.

Upon check-in, the lobby is a misconception of the actual experience. To be fair, maybe we didn't pick the fanciest room but I our lodging was the equivalent of super 8 or motel 6. The room was very clean and comfortable and I have no complaints with it meeting our basic needs. I have never seen a bathroom without a... More

It was a very cute place, and looked very nice. When you looked at some of the detail it wasn't horrible, but not the best either. We had the heart shaped jacuzzi, which was amazing, the only thing that was upsetting about that was; no matter the amount of water in it, it would flood the area. We had to... More

The room was clean and nice but the rooms were horribly uncomfortable, very hard! Pillows were way to soft...overall felt like we were sleeping on a countertop! Wish the room had a microwave

The room was clean, the staff was nice and the rates were very reasonable. We have stayed here before and were very pleased then also. It's very close to downtown Traverse City and easy access to most everything in the area.

This is the 2nd time I have stayed here and we had another amazing stay. The room was great, very roomy and very clean. Great location close to everything. I stayed here for 3 nights and the rate was very reasonable. The most enjoyable part of my stay was the front desk clerk Moe. What a wonderful lady, she was... More

My elderly parents needed to stay overnight for surgery next day; I needed to pay for the room for them, and make sure they did not have to pay. The woman during day was so nice and took my daughters' card info from our shared account, telling her "it is all set" when my daughter wanted to maker sure her... More

The maids were wonderful but the desk people were not friendly or polite. The continental breakfast was awful. they had the lowest priced toast and donuts and kept running out of stuff. they show the best side of the motel in the picture. walk around the other side and it looks very run down! The room was $140.00 a night... More
