Came up to Traverse City for a snowshoe race and needed a place for the night. Nothing fancy, just a clean room with a reasonably comfortable bed. This place fit the bill perfectly at a very good price. This is an older-style (I suppose now it qualifies as "vintage") motel, on the main road near the waterfront, just outside of... More

Second time staying here and Constanza and family are wonderful, friendly and very accommodating. Long California flight and drive from Chicago arrived close to midnight with my sister and our two rooms were ready and super clean. My body and soul felt so rested. Appreciate WiFi, coffee maker. This will definitely be home whenever I visit TC. I've stayed at... More

Really great price for a busy weekend! Clean room, super hot water, just perfect for what I needed- great job! Seems like a family owned business in the middle of many big chain hotels, so I also felt good supporting a local small business. If I'm in traverse city again, I would definitely stay at Sierra motel!

I have travel a lot nationwide and over seas. This has got to the best service I have ever received at ANY business. My husband and I were so pleased we are sure we will be back on our next trip north. Don't change a thing. You are great.

We hadn't been to Traverse City in many years and were shocked to find that most of the smaller motels had been torn down and replaced by big hotel chains with high prices. Saw TA on Sierra's sign and were pleasantly surprised. It's a well-kept, small two-story older motel with reasonable rates. This was 8 p.m., and we got the... More

On the way to the UP and had just left Sleeping Bear Dunes. We needed a place for only 1 night. Found this place on TA and it's the kind of place we seek out on road trips. It's an older,very well maintained, non-chain, roadside motel full of nostalgic charm. We went into the office and were given a great... More

From the time we arrived till the time we left customer service was wonderful. We were able to check in early, then we were shown our room for approval by the Cony,(what a sweet lady). The room was small, but very clean. We had a king size bed. Cony showed me where an extra pillow and blanket were for just... More

Sierra Motel is a small older place, reasonably priced, in a good location. Room was very clean! Beds were very comfortable. Good WiFi and cable TV. Overall a basic room but above average in that it was well maintained and clean.. This motel is well located on the Main Street south of the lake.

We were in Traverse City for an event. Almost all the hotels we booked! We got the last room at the Sierra Motel. We loved it! The owners were continually looking out for our needs. The property is great value. Across the street is the Best Western and the rates are more than double for a room with a bed... More

We stayed for 3 nights over labor day weekend. We first loved the way were greeted in the office. Such a kind and accommodating lady. She showed us to our room before checking in to make sure we were happy. We loved our second floor room. It was exceptionally clean and quiet. This is a vintage Up North kinda place... More
