Rooms have been remodeled. Excellent bedding and clean room. Good Service and Friendly Staff. No breakfast other than coffee, but that is advertised. Tight parking lot. Great place to stay if you want "no frills." However, at more than $80 per night, there could be a bit more offered to bump this motel to excellent.

We've visited Traverse City for a day or two for the last two years and have stayed at another more expensive chain very near the Motel 6. Last year we were not particularly happy with the room so decided to try the Motel 6. Excellent choice. I'm disabled and was able to bring my power scooter into the room and... More

Not bad for the money. Only coffee for breakfast. Heated pool was by no means heated extremely cold couldn't swim in. Staff was very nice. Rooms clean and very plain. Hot tub was nice and warm. Other motels in the area served at least donuts.

Great motel, clean, good beds and nice towels, service and personnel helpful and friendly, I will have to take another look at Motel 6's in the future as we are traveling. We travel often and stopped going to Motel 6 due to bad experiences; here is a big "THANK YOU!" To Jonny and his staff.

But when we came across the indian man on staff (who i later found out was the OWNER!!) He was VERY rude when we asked for an extra towel. Our second visit, the beginnging of this month, we... More

We stayed here for one winter night and found it to be clean, comfortable and a good value. We will definitely stay here again in the future. The Red Mesa Grill is just a couple doors down and a great restaurant. The motel is within a short drive or cab ride to town and has several restaurants within walking distance.

I would like to say, that the midnight staff, who apparently "owns" the hotel, treats people like dirt! If you are up at night, and have to deal with the person who was working on 2/12, then I feel sorry for you. He is RUDE, and won't even give you his name! Other than that, it was a nice hotel,...

Our stay at motel 6 was only for a night in October 2013. My girl friend and I weren't looking to spend much money BUT we wanted to be on the main hotel drag "US 31" and close to downtown. Motel 6!was perfect. They also offer a indoor swimming pool and hot tub which was a huge plus from being... More

Unusual for Motel 6, this property has surprisingly comfortable, modern mattresses and thick towels. And if you suffer allergies, the rooms here are perfect: smoke free and clean even though pets are allowed. I stay here when I am in Traverse City. It is very close to Lake Michigan and restaurants are in walking distance. Be surprised with the quality... More

Very nice room for the price. Nothing fancy.....no shampoo or hairdryer, but just the basics. it doesn't feel real homey with no carpet, but I like the idea of the wood floors instead of walking on dirty carpet. Seems there are lots of construction workers staying here during the week. We had a guy pounding on the door next to... More
