The rooms are clean and spacious. Each room has a nice little patio but there are no dividers so you are ver close to those around you. The beach is fine but marsh on both sides so you cannot walk the beach other than right in front of the hotel. That was a big turnoff for us. Also, very picky... More

We got married at Pointes North on Aug 9, 2014. It was so beautiful there. Everyone was so nice and helpful. The beach was beautifully groomed everyday and they also groomed it for our wedding. We are planning to go back for our anniversary next year. Matt & Salina

Took a last minute getaway to Traverse City, Michigan. Was grateful that we found a hotel as this destination is usually booked months in advance. There are only a few properties that are on the beach. This hotel is on the beach but the beach is surrounded by tall grass. The tall grass makes it safer and is only occupied... More

I love Michigan beaches but I am not fond of most of the accommodations. With that in mind, my husband and I enjoyed our stay here ! It was a last minute trip & one room opened up mid Summer due to a cancellation. It turns out it's the only 4th floor room they have, thus a suite. The bigger... More

Rooms were nice and spacious, jacuzzi tub was great and king size bed was amazing! The view from our balcony opens right out onto Grand Traverse Bay and was breath taking. Staff was very helpful and the beach was groomed daily. We will definitely be back again someday.

I read all the reviews saying to avoid the rooms next to the pool- after we were already placed in a room next to the pool. Good thing I didn't know that it was supposed to be a bad thing, because we thought being able to walk right out our door and onto the pool deck was GREAT. Traveling with... More

The room was bright & cheerful but this is definitely a more old-fashioned, dated motel than resort. Beach looked great but we had bad weather & didn't use it. Biggest complaint: We were told we were getting TWO QUEEN-SIZE beds. What they gave us was a double bed & pull-out couch. When we called the front desk they said that... More

I liked the room. They were pretty dated but the room sizes are generous and the view was amazing. The balcony views and the sounds/smell of the lake are just breathtaking. Great, great views! I wish they would upgrade the balcony/beach seating though. Super uncomfortable and a little on the cheapo end but again....you can't beat this view. Tub in... More

Have stayed many times at this resort and love it! Rooms are well appointed and clean. Roomy balconies, continental breakfast in the morning. The beach is very well maintained and the staff is pleasant and courteous. We like the third floor rooms for the view. If stairs are a concern, make sure to let them know. One of the buildings...

The location, in proximity to Traverse City and right on the motel's own private section of beach was wonderful! Every room has a beach view. Didn't think about it ahead of time, but gratefully, there's no smoking on the balconies/patios either. Would have ruined it if we had to smell nasty cig smoke from other's balconies. Clean, attractive, spacious room.... More
