It was a lower price than other hotels with whirlpool rooms so we booked for an overnight stay. We arrived and staff were friendly. When we checked into our room it had a musty smell and was out dated. The whirlpool was a good size, but appeared dirty and out dated. We filled it and the top layer of water... More

The room is what you would expect for 55$ a night but it exceeded my wife and I expectations. The room was clean and the bathroom was fine. There wasn't a bad smell in the room or hotel for that matter. I would stay here again.

Upon entering, the hotel was dirty - stuff on the floors, went to second floor and the hallways were filthy, our beds appeared clean but the tub looked dirty and we had to pick up the mat in the tub and under it was disgusting with lots of mold!!! Made me wonder if they actually had cleaned the room at... More

This is a former Super 8 hotel. It does not have a pool or hot tub. We found our room to be clean, comfortable and more than adequate for a good night sleep at a great rate ($55). Our third floor room had a king bed, flat screen TV, mini fridge (with small freezer), a single-cup coffee maker, and a... More

The hotel itself is located on the opposite side of the road to the lake, which was an immediate negative point for us. The building looks tired and unkempt, windows were dirty and the reception area is so dull! The room was large and on the surface looks okay, but don't hold your breath! Although the sheets appeared clean the... More

Room was very dusty and spider webs up on a wall near the ceiling. The fixtures and furnishings were very dated. Given the $200.00 + cost per night, it was not what I expected when I booked online. We were in town for a family event, and had limited choices. Next time, I go to Traverse City I will definitely... More

It DESPERATELY needs updating and cleaning. Obviously the owners are more concerned abput taking in money than taking care of the customers needs. You defintely get what you pay for - and this proves it!

Not worth $200 a night! Ridiculous that they could get away with charging this when they clearly don't clean. Hallway carpet was stained and elevator smelled like urine. The room was ok, fairly clean but I wouldn't walk around barefoot. The towels were stained. We would not go back.

Great place for an overnight. For the price, it's just fine; no unpleasant surprises. The free breakfast was pretty good for this level of motel, including some make it yourself waffles. The room was clean to a high standard. I do wonder why they don't do a better job of presenting the lobby, which seemed dirty at 10 pm at... More

This is our 3rd time staying here. We find the rooms clean and the breakfast better than many other places. Like the Belgium waffles! Also, breakfast items are usually left beyond the posted time, for those who show up a bit late for breakfast. Employees are friendly and helpful. It's not a 4 or 5 star hotel, but then the... More
