Basic hotel for people who are looking for a place to sleep and take a shower. Very clean and conveniently located to everything in Traverse City. Will defiantly go back. Close to the road but I wasn't bothered by the noise even with road construction going on. Nice place. The only complaint I had was I couldn't connect to their... More

This is a delightful, small, family-owned motel located right on U.S. 31 (this road is also MI 72 and MI 37) that looks out at the East Bay. When I say small, it is--it only has 15 units. It is located 3 miles east of downtown and is across the highway from State Beach Park which is a very nice... More

No, it's not fancy. And yes, it's a motel so you can hear more road noise than if you were in a hotel. However, it was clean, comfortable and just right for our getaway. We didn't have a single complaint.

This reminded me of going to a bed and breakfast. It was a pretty view with Mitchell Creek running through the property. There was a grill out back that we used to cook dinner one night. Granted the rooms were not over the top or fancy, but I never felt like I needed more than what they gave me. The... More

We found Mitchell Creek by chance one weekend and we are back for our 4th weekend this year! The owners, Dave and Amanda....are so kind! They keep the place neat and family friendly! This places biggest draw is it's value! Located within a few miles of downtown, you are close to everything at a fraction of the cost! Meet the... More

I guess I would stay here again if other motels were not available. The rooms were clean and the owner was nice but being on the main highway was just too noisy for me. The traffic stopped about 12m-1am and resumed like clockwork at 6am.

We stayed in one of the rooms that had 2 double beds. It included a small kitchen which was nice, at tall dresser and the bathroom was small, not a lot of counter space, but was clean. One thing we noticed was that the toilet seat was broken, not that big of a deal. In the rear of the property... More

Family of 4 stayed in 2 bedroom cottage for 2 nights. The cottage is rustic, kind of like a hunting lodge. Comfortable, clean and enjoyable with deck and green space. Great location, near downtown. The owner is friendly and I loved petting and playing with his dogs. Excellent value and go not expecting 5 star hotel.

We were looking for a reasonably priced motel in TC for a summer weekend. Mitchell's worked for our group. We had a kitchen, two bedroom, living room and very small bathroom. It was all very clean, but a discerning traveler might be less than thrilled. However, for the price we were pleased with the location and space.

I booked a room at Mitchell Creek back in early April for July 5th. We were only going to be in town for the weekend for a class reunion. They called me on July 4th to say they overbooked and needed talk to me. We stayed our first night in Interlochen and didn't have very good cell reception so I... More
