The best thing about this hotel is its location right on the "beach" area. If you get a room that is beachfront, lovely views of the lake though you will also see all the other properties on the strip. Apart from that its a fairly decent hotel, nothing spectacular, nothing bad either. Breakfast is included which is convenient though it... More

Stayed for two nights and the room was clean, and updated. Bed was comfortable and there was a mini fridge and microwave. The staff was great and the breakfast buffet was typical for a free breakfast but was well stocked and looked after.

Cute hotel. Very friendly staff. The only complaint we had was the pillows weren't comfortable. We stayed one night as a quick get away from home. Loved the view from our room. You could walk right out onto the lake area. Rooms were clean but you could hear other kids playing in the hall late at night. Pool was nice... More

The family suite was a good size/layout for our family of 5 (2 parents with boys 13,12, & 10.) The room was clean and beds comfy (all except the pull out couch/bed, but kids didn't complain.) The main door to the room needs updated as you can hear everything that takes place in the hall (not good when the ice... More

Nice location, clean comfortable rooms, but customer service has been getting worse and worse over that past couple of years. They used to have a very nice breakfast bar with hot Belgian waffles as well as cold items, fruits, yogurt and such. We have stayed there in the past and enjoyed the included breakfast. This is a nice savings versus... More

We took advantage of Traverse City's Fab Fall Special and chose this hotel. It is right on the beach with well furnished, clean rooms, a decent breakfast, and friendly staff. Each room has a microwave, coffiemaker, and refrigerator. Although we did not take advantage of the pool and hot tub, the area looked very nice. Travese City is a beautiful... More

This is our 5th time staying in this fabulous hotel with our two kids for my husband's Iceman Mt. Bike race in November. Now, we have never been here in the summer when, I'm sure, the hotel is at capacity with families and kids; however, I can't believe it is anything less than perfect. During this stay, we had a...

Rooms are updated and clean with a super view. We got a great rate with an online company, so the price was great. Breakfast was good, pool area was very nice. This location needs downstate advertising for winter get-aways, it is a gem. If we get a winter package, we will do it. The staff was welcoming and helpful-we'll be... More

We were pleasantly surprised with this property! Clean and comfortable. Front Desk was friendly and competent.The weekend of October 10-12 was and extremely busy weekend. The colors were just about perfect and the weather was cool and crisp! Perfect for pumpkins, apples, bike riding, and wine tasting. Would stay here again!
