I found this little gem online for very cheap, especially compared to the surrounding hotel prices. This hotel is almost directly across the street from the Star Line Ferry to Mackinac Island, which made it very easy to walk to. We arrived early and they allowed us to leave our car there while we explored the island. They also gave up a wide variety of coupons for use on the island and in the city. The place was outdated, but clean. We chose the smallest room, as we were only going to be there at night to sleep. It had a fullsize bed, old tv, and small desk with about 3 feet of room on any given side of the bed. Very tiny, but clean and comfortable and we had our own bathroom. I felt safe staying there, and you can't beat the price and location. Will definitely stay again next time we travel to Traverse City.
