The hotel was very clean. The staff was very courteous and friendly. This might possibly be the best free continental breakfast I've seen yet. Checking and checking out was a breeze! Great location with Don's Burgers down the road and very close to downtown Traverse City.

Even though this isn't on the beach, it is on the main drag through town and very close to different beach areas. The hotel is very spread out and our room was quite a ways from the pool and main lobby area. The hotel was clean and staff were friendly. There was always coffee, tea, hot cocoa available in the...

Everything about this property was very nice. The breakfast was more than enough and many things to choose from and changed each day. The pool area and hot tub were very enjoyable and just perfect. The room was very comfortable for 4 people.

Stayed at this hotel for 3 nights. This hotel has been recently updated and the rooms have the look and feel of a new hotel. The staff was pleasant and helpful and we experienced no problems during our stay. There is plenty of parking and it is a short drive to downtown or the waterfront. Also the breakfast there is...

This is an old low-story motel that has been rebranded and refurbished. You can put lipstick on a pig but at the end of the day, it's still a pig! Room and hallways were dark. Breakfast area was so crowded and cramped we didn't even try to eat there. Many rooms have doors opening directly into the parking lot. The... More

You can't please everyone all the time but we certainly try! We are very sorry that you feel this way! We are pet friendly, but never have we allowed pigs even with lipstick. More

Customer service was great here, and the room rates not bad at all. The hotel was clean, the beds were comfy, and breakfast was good. We got an early check-in, and they called soon after to make sure everything was satisfactory. The sound on our tv dropped on our first day, and maintenance was at the door within about three...

The Bad 1.Housekeeping was very minimal, despite daily tipping. Beds made and bathroom cleaned - that was about it. No sheets cleaned despite a week's stay. Awful pillows. 2. No windows in living room. 3. No real "kitchenette" at all, no silverware, plates, glasses, cups, absolutely nothing. 4. Undrinkable coffee. The Good Good breakfast/plenty of seating both indoor and out.... More

I like this hotel. Clean and staff professional. Pull nice size and closes to kids under 21 around 10:30pm. Adults only till midnight. Hot breakfast was nice...waffles, eggs, sausage, fruit, pastries and cereal. The rooms are nice and clean. Our TV wouldn't turn on the second night so we called the front desk. The maintenance guy came right up..unplugged it... More

This was a great place to stay. We were there over the 4th of July weekend. The staff was friendly and helpful. Cookies available as was coffee and tea. All rooms had a refrigerator and microwave.

We made an impromptu trip to Traverse City and rather drive the 6hrs home, we did a last minute hotel deal and got a room at the Country Inns and Suites. We arrived to friendly, competent staff who were apologetic because their "fresh made" cookies weren't still warm. The room was spacious and immaculate. I am one of "those people"... More
