The hotel is an inexpensive alternative to families of four or more people as it provides 2-bedroom suites which are clean and spacious. For a very reasonable value you get: - 2 bedrooms (one upstairs), kitchenette, single bath room - Parking and internet access free - Full kitchen appliances for cooking - Three closets and plenty of room for luggage...

We just got back from a very nice visit to Traverse City. We traveled through the night and arrived very early morning. They were very accommodating and left the keys (actual keys) for us. Upon entering the room you notice the nice size. Sitting space with a flat screen tv, kitchenette, and decent size bedroom with another tv. The bathroom... More

Nice motel with clean suite rooms. Has a kitchenette, small dining area and two bedrooms. Sleeps at least 6. Practical location and good value for the money. Check in and check out quick, easy, especially as we arrived at 3 am (the keys were waiting for us).

Fit the bill for a quick overnight stay. Six adults staying in the 2 bedroom. Was clean, efficient checkin/checkout, great price, family run business. Lots of local knowledge from Jeff. Only thing holding me back from 5 stars is needs some paint on rusty surfaces, and updating.

Very comfortable room, great little kitchenette/combo living room area with 2 separate bedrooms. Beds were very comfortable and the room overall were very clean. I would suggest for the owners to clean the a/c filters, (didn't notice until the morning we were getting ready to leave). For those traveling keep in mind that the hotel sits east of Traverse City,... More

Complete kitchenette, comfortable, back your vehicle to the door, restaurants and beach, and great views within walking or wheelchair distance. The proprietors were good to me; they are very busy but if you need them, just dial 0. Plenty of room in the room. I was alone and can't travel light.
