Cute vintage motel. Extra clean not updated but everything was working and looked good. In room coffee maker and hair dryer. No elevator so ask for first floor. The staff was friendly and helpful. There was coffee, juice and muffins in the mornings. You can tell the owners take pride in their motel it shows in how well kept this... More

This was my first visit to Traverse City and while searching for hotels in the area, I came across Sierra Motel. I am so glad I did! This place had the best deal and was very clean to say the least. The staff was friendly and very helpful. I am definitely staying here again.

This is a throw back to motor lodges. basic rooms with updated appliances and furniture. Visited during the Cherry Festival so the rates were overly high but cheaper than all the others. If you are looking for basic accommodations this is a very good stop. Close to downtown and surrounding attractions.

Room was old and out of date. Sheets had yellow stains on the bed. Husband broke out in a horrible rash and the front desk said that was his problem. Would never go back here again. Take your money and go somewhere nicer. There are way better places in traverse than this dump.

Let me start by saying that I called this place last minute and the lady on the the phone was very warm and inviting. Constanza was very nice and let me know about their establishment and what they had available. All I can say is that it totally surpassed my expectations. The place is super clean, and I mean SUPER... More

We have been to T.C. Many times. This motel by far was the cleanest most affordable one we have stayed at. From the time you check in untill the time you check out you are treated like a friend not a customer. Great location too. Definitely will stay there next time.
