Our room was very clean -- just as advertised! I was very happy not to be disappointed! The Sierra is not a fancy motel but it had everything that we needed including a comfy recliner! We will definitely return to the Sierra for the convenient location, the low cost, and most importantly a very clean and comfortable room!!

The bathroom is small but the room is large and clean. The staff is very friendly location is great for the Leelanau wine tours. Will be back in the spring time. The bed was so comfortable we slept without waking up once.

This place is just right! The price is great. The room size is large. There was even a recliner chair in the room! Very friendly owners. Took us to the room before we signed up. Not fancy but clean and will stay again if in the area. Family owned and operated.

Cleanist motel we stayed in during road trip. Room has been updated very well. Loved it! Very accommodating and friendly staff. Easy access to room. Worked great with motorcycle traveling. Staff went out of there way to accommodate us with our wet clothing after riding in rain.

My husband and I were in Traverse City last week. We noticed the TRIP ADVISOR review on the outside sign that caught our eye as we were driving 'the strip' to find a place to stay. Conveniently located to the beauty of the Bay and not far from everything we decided to give this place a try. Hugo was at... More

This motel is conveniently located near downtown Traverse City, Our room was very comfortable, clean and fully equipped (AC, WiFi (that really worked), a small fridge and microwave, and a flat panel HD TV). The Sierra Motel is family owned and operated. And they really showed us how much they care about their guests and the quality of the service... More

We had a wonderful experience. Registration was easy. Went out their way to make us feel welcome. Rooms look brand new. If you want a nice place to stay and not pay the big chain motel prices don't pass this one up. Lady at front desk even showed us our room prior to registration to make sure we were satisfied...

This motel has been aptly described as "vintage," some may even say out-of-date. Nevertheless it was clean and welcoming. More importantly however was the impeccable service from the staff, or rather the family who owns and operates the motel. Despite a minor inconvenience, Hugo at the front desk went above and beyond to make sure we were pleased with our... More

It may be "out of date" for some, but it was fun, clean, and great location! The staff was very helpful as well. They helped find places to go and made sure we were happy every visit to office (went a few times asking questions, getting ice, etc ) It had a microwave and fridge. It was a nice walk... More
