Advertised as an airport hotel in Traverse City, No airport shuttle, $26.00 taxi ride to the airport. Miles away from anything. No elevator, rooms and bed decent, but overpriced for the location. A couple in their 90's had requested a ground floor room only to find they had been booked on the second floor. I had to carry their bags... More

We are sorry you were unhappy with your stay. Although I cannot determine which website the guest used, we do not advertise ourselves as an airport hotel on any site in which we control the content. We are approximately 7 miles from the airport, which is comparable to most of the other hotels in Traverse City. We monitor rates on... More

Riding our Harley Davidson around the perimeter of the "Mitten" and the hotels in downtown Travis City were $300 and up for a Holiday Inn, so we stayed inland at an overpriced Econolodge instead. What can I say...it was an Econolodge. Room was well worn but clean and had everything we needed. It served it's purpose.

It was a good price, location, and breakfast. The location was decent as well. We would go again, especially considering how good the price was along with amenities. We honestly had no complaints, everything was as it should be.

Shocked by the prices downtown motels were asking during the cherry festival, we resorted to an Econolodge 7 miles south of town. Not cheap, but less outrageous. Our accesible king bed room was not large ( the large bathroom took up much space) but it had fridge, microwave, and safe. Breakfast included eggs and sausage as well as the usual... More

The price was reasonable, as Traverse City is a rather expensive tourist/vacation area. The staff was friendly, the room was clean. We did not check out the continental breakfast, but did take advantage of the pool and hot tub. We were there to be with a family member who was hospitalized at Munson Medical Center. Overall stay was satisfactory, would... More

The front desk staff was friendly and efficient. The guest room was clean but basic in size and comfort. Our room had two queen beds. The mattresses were okay for one night. There was a flat screen TV, microwave, and small fridge/freezer. One night stand was between the two beds. A small table with two chairs was tucked in the... More

We stayed here because my husband's company put him up here. The woman who checked us in couldn't have been friendlier, but the whole place was just kind of cheap. One thing that really concerned me was that none of the exterior doors were secured, even late at night. That means that ANYONE could come in and walk through the... More
