The title says it all. If you are looking for a boutique hotel with all the pampering and amenities, then keep looking. If you are looking for a clean room with a clean, comfortable bed-then this motel will fit the bill. Traverse City can be pricey and many inexperienced visitors have unrealistic ideas of price vs. value. This motel is... More

This hotel was one of the only places with rooms left. The room was in need of updating, it was clean enough but other hotels provide much nicer rooms for the same price. Pet friendly came with an additional charge and did not allow pet to stay in room while we went to dinner. Had it not been so busy... More

We stayed there on Oct 11, 2014. Halls are filthy. Bathroom tub was grungy. Room was subpar. Never took my socks off, not even to sleep. Will never stay there again and would never recommend this place to anyone.

I usually wouldn't stay at this off brand hotel but I read online that this was hotel was remodeled and updated in 2013. If that is true, it has really been beat up in the last year. Very dingy overall. Our shower was so filthy with visible mold that we had to wear flip flops! The breakfast was just a... More

We stayed here for 3 nights this past weekend and it was to my surprise, better than anticipated. I was really only looking for a place to hang out and sleep in. Most of the day, we weren't in our room. Everything seemed very clean and put together. I would stay again. We did utilize the free wifi but did... More

Most of our regular fav hotels were all booked for our weekend wine tour getaway so we booked this one. Pros- large jacuzzi suite, gas fireplace, comfy bed, plenty of towels in room for tub and shower, room decently clean, large windows that actually opened! Cons- TV not adjustable (only faced the couch and tub, not the bed), loud bachelorette... More

We stayed at Boarders Inn and Suites on a fall weekend, mostly because it was the only hotel we could find under $200 with a vacancy. We were pleasantly surprised to find it neat and clean, with a nice complimentary continental breakfast. I'm glad I didn't see the reviews calling this place filthy before I stayed there. "Filthy" wasn't at... More

I stayed at this motel in July and was very disappointed. I took a wet paper towel and ran it across the baseboard in the bathroom and was very disgusted at the amount of dirt that was there. Since this was plainly visible, I wonder what was filthy that wasn't visible. I even found a bobby pin behind the table... More

At press time, Boarders is 28th out of 38 in TC which seems low. I didn't experience any cigarette or pot smoke, or Hooters noise. And I can't comment on breakfast since I prefer outside breakfasts. The room was clean and the service was efficient. As a caffeine addict, I appreciate the brief walk to Crow About It. And as... More

This was definitely not a four star hotel...BUT the price was right and the sleeping was comfortable. Hotel lobby was drab and check-in desk was messy. Office door mailbox was crammed to overflowing with paperwork. Clerk looked unprofessional and did not even stand up with multiple customers in line. Breakfast was nice, but if you were not there by 9am... More
