This isn't a fancy motel, when compared to some of the higher priced motels. However, it is neat and clean. On our three hour drive from Sault Sainte Marie, this is a real haven and a welcome site after battling snow and high winds. for three hours

The best motel experience ever! My family and I arrived in Traverse City to find that a room that we had reserved at another hotel had been over booked. We frantically drove the strip and stopped at the Sierra Hotel so that we could book a room to change for our daughter’s wedding, knowing full well that we would have... More

The sign out front said something along the lines of "stop, look, be surprised". And the sign was right! Sierra motel is flanked by many large hotel chains and may appear a little outdated, but the room was SPOTLESS. Owners were very kind and always nice to see a family-owned hotel. I did not hear any noise from rooms next... More

Owners were great. They gave us a great suggestion for dinner. Room was very clean. This older motel has been well maintained. Great value for the price. If you don't need to be on the water, this is a great choice. Would definitely stay again!

We didn't have any reservations in Traverse City and just happened to go by the Sierra. On their sign outside it boasted the cleanest rooms in Traverse City. That sign said it best. I am a fanatic when it comes to clean rooms and always want to see them before we stay. She ASKED US FIRST, even before we had... More

We needed a room at the last minute and pulled into this little motel, not expecting much. We were greeted by a nice lady, I believe her name was Connie?...she said the rooms are very clean several times....she showed us to the room and she was not kidding. Spotless...yes a bit dated, but well maintained and very clean. Room had... More

in a recent trip to TC, we found the Sierra to be exactly as described. Nice place to pull your bike right up to your room. The road noise is a bit annoying at first, but that a function of Traverse City in the mid-summer peak travel season. Connie and her husband Slim are sweet and they'll do whatever they... More

We booked room as it was very close to the airport. It suited our needs for an over night stay. the room was exceptionally clean with a small refrigerator and microwave huge screen television. My only con was coffee pot in room made lousy weak coffee.

The room rates are very affordable. Rooms spacious and clean. AC worked very well(it was in the mid 90's while we were there). The manager was very kind and accommodating. Would stay there again. Highly recommend!

My husband and I are very pleased with the accommodations at the Sierra Motel. It was incredibly clean and the owner was friendly and made us feel as if we were in her home. Actually, we were, she lives on the premises, and you can see the pride she has in her place. each room has a Mini Fridge, Microwave,... More
