Just spent the weekend in Traverse City and was very happy with Motel 6 because the place is nice and clean and the staff is helpful and efficient! The best part is that your dogs stay free! Most places tack on extra fees for dogs, but not Motel 6! It was a great experience and the kids have an indoor... More

The rooms with clean with lots of towels, nice modern decor too! The room had a fairly new TV, mini-fridge and micro, helpful staff and easy parking lot access at the front and side rear. Wifi access was great . Only negative was the small pool and pool room which could use a coat of paint. FYI - floors are... More

If you are expecting a Holiday Inn or Ramada, this is not the place for you. If you are looking for a cheap enough motel that is clean and relatively comfortable, then this one will do. We went in knowing exactly what amenities to expect, so we knew that things would not be fancy. But it was immaculately clean, the... More

First of all, it is a Motel 6, and they do not tend to be high end places to stay. I was not expecting much, other than a cheap place to sleep, but I was pleasantly surprised. Check in was quick and friendly. I was very happy that there was an elevator since we were on the second floor. We... More

This hotel served it's purpose, as far as having a place to sleep....that's it! The pool area is small and dinghy and other than the free coffee in the lobby in the morning, that's all you get in the way of amenities. I suppose there are a few cable channels you can watch, but I suspect if you're in Traverse... More

Clean motel to stay for a night or two. The beds were clean and comfortable. There was good Wi-Fi, cable and free coffee in the morning. The motel was well lit and had plenty of parking. The front desk was friendly and quick to check me in on my late arrival.

A.place to sleep affordably priced for the area. Clean -friendly at check in. So much to do in Traverse City.... its all you need! Not for someone who wants to spend much time at the motel. They have done some updating too.

We were pleased with the updated decor of this hotel. The room was bright and clean and we appreciated the clean laundry room. The first front desk clerk was somewhat surly, but it could be he was just overtired or hungry...or both. The hotel is in a great location close to the beach, but I would use caution if I... More

We were in town for a lacrosse tournament and booked super late this was the only hotel under $300 a night. The rooms were on the small size but clean and fairly comfortable. Staff was friendly and the location of the hotel was perfect. Great non frills last minute place.

Have stayed at this property numerous times and always found it to be impeccably clean, the staff very efficient and the owner so friendly that you would think you were coming home to family. The showers have good pressure, the beds feature newer mattresses and the tv has a plentiful selection of channels. Never any surprises here.
