Our first visit to Traverse City's Motel 6 in decemer 2013 was fine at first, the room was clean, modern and comfortable. 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

We traveled the UP and down part of lower Michigan. Our stay at Motel 6 in TC was the best hotel room on the whole trip. It was very clean. I liked the wood floors instead of the usual dirty carpet that most motels have. No continental breakfast, but the coffee pot was in the lobby, and that was all... More

Pulled into parking lot & hotel next door looked even cheaper than ours (didn't feel like Traverse City) BUT for $46 a night, it was just what we wanted: inexpensive one night stay in TC. HUGE plus: TART trail to ride into downtown right in back of hotel. Room was large, so wishother would have had a bigger bed in... More

Well we just checked in after a long drive and completely exhausted. The first thing that hit us when we opened the door was the incredible smell of wet dog or something... The dog hair on the sheets was pretty disgusting and made me wonder if they were even washed. The urine on the floor by the toilet was a... More

Clean rooms and pet friendly with no dog smell. Would stay again. Not much amenities but all we wanted to do is spend the nite. Close to town. Staff very pleasant. A good deal for the price when you look around here and see the prices.
