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

I needed a last minute booking for two days during the height of the season and didn't want to spend $400 at a mediocre chain with a no-big-deal view of the lake so the spouse booked us at Boarders. I gave it a poor rating instead of terrible because the 1) bed was actually quite comfortable and had very decent... More

This hotel is the perfect example of greed. Since hotel prices for summer weekends in this resort town are difficult to book for less than $200, the owners of this run down property think it's okay to charge that much for a room that anywhere else would be worth $39.99. It isn't expensive to buy bleach to kill the mold... More

It is a motel. location is OK. Shabby lobby and hallway. Has an old smell. Beds are clean, but bath room is dirty. Has black scratches on the counter. This hotel needs a lot of work. Will not stay again.

For the rate we paid, we got a great deal. We went at a busy time and this hotel was not gouging the market. It is not an upscale place, but the rooms were clean and comfortable. The staff was helpful an courteous. They could clean the elevator a bit... but that is the worst we could say. WOuld stay... More

Overpriced for what it is but it IS Traverse City and nothing is cheap. It's clean. It's basic. Refrigerators in all rooms and coffee. No hassles. Easy check-in. We would stay here again. Has a hair dryer, shampoo, conditioner, soaps, a lot of towels, it was quiet there.

The staff is very friendly and helpful with goings on in TC. The hotel needs so much TLC. Since we were there only 2 days it was adequate. But if you need a good nights sleep try someplace else. The A/C is so loud and noisy it keeps you up until you shut it off, then you wake up hot... More
