I stayed here in August 2015 for a summer trip up north, the location is great, right across the street from the coast and most of the activities you'll want to do. Parking is ample, rooms were VERY clean and pleasing to the eye - as a first timer to Motel 6 I wasn't expecting as much. Service was fine,... More

We arrived at 10 pm and there was a very friendly gentleman at the front desk. He checked us in, got us towels for the pool and made us feel right at home. The rom was very basic, but clean and comfortable. I was nervous about this lodging because the price was so low for traverse city, but I was... More

Short on amenities, but at $55, it's tough to beat. I arrived at midnight and was back in the car by 8:00 AM, so the amenities would have been wasted on me, anyway. If you're going to visit Traverse City, and go, go, go all day, this place is perfect.

They left the light on for me! :) I was looking for a cheap but comfortable place to stay, for a night before meeting up with friends for the weekend. The rooms are spacious, and the bed comfortable. Staff was friendly. The only downfall was the strong smell of chlorine.

Every year when I stay here this Motel 6 gets better and seems to be at the top of its game now, super clean with very nice mattresses and thick, clean bath towels. The manager has always been friendly and very accommodating, and remains so, even in the busiest of months, giving a sense of genuinely of caring for his... More

This was the first time I've stayed in a Motel 6, and I was actually pleasantly surprised. I was expecting a cheap outside walk-up, but was glad to find that all of the rooms are inside and that they have an elevator. The rooms are definitely sparse: no hair dryer, clock or coffee maker (although they do offer free coffee... More

We were pleasantly surprised. The hotel has a contemporary feel. It's still a basic inexpensive hotel. The room was clean, spacious and comfortable. Great value. We liked the laminate floor instead of carpeting. Keeps the dirt and allergens to a minimum.

Nice little motel to stop at for a night. Had all the amenities you really need for a relaxing night. Great comfy bed, hot hot tub, soothing indoor pool, and I have to say the rooms were quiet. I've stayed at alot of hotels and it seems there's always noises. Didn't notice a creak or drip. 8-) thanks for leaving... More

Motel 6 seem to range from scary and awful to superb these days. The Traverse City Motel 6 is on the high end of the scale. It is across the street from the beaches with direct access not too far away. It is quiet. Rooms are modern. Full channel flat screen TV. Indoor pool. Probably the lowest priced hotel in... More
