“Overall it's a great place to stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2014

Very professional staff. Breakfast was great with plenty of options.
The room was very nice with everything you could need.
The only exception would be the shower. While it looks so big and modern, there is no shelf to put items or a bench (it is a walk-in shower). So, while guys may not notice these details, I sure did!! I also wish there had been a fan to remove the humidity/fog build up.
I would stay here again, but not for a long stay due to the day-to-day inconveniences of the shower.

Room Tip: The rooms that face the road are a bit noisy, but the A/C fan can help to drown out the sound.

Thank you for staying with us at the Cambria Suites. I am glad that you enjoyed
our hospitality and our property. Thank you for your suggestions regarding the shower
area and the bathroom fan. Our bathroom fans do run continuous, which is unlike the
style that you may have in your home. Thank you for being our guest.

Check-in was quick and the front desk clerk friendly and knowledgeable. We had a first floor queen suite. It was clean and had a contemporary feel to it. The bathroom is on the smaller side but the shower had great water pressure and was hot. One complaint from my wife was the poor lighting in the bathroom while she was getting ready in the morning.

I agree with other guests that the hotel is in an awkward location. While on a busy street, there's an old 7-11 across the street. For neighbors there is an old motel which I couldn't determine if was still in business or abandoned. Behind Cambria Suites was a shady apartment complex which they wanted you to park against.

We paid close to $300 including taxes for one night. I think for what you get this place is overpriced. No breakfast included and not on the water (or even a decent view in any direction).

If we're ever in Traverse City again we will probably look elsewhere.

I'm sorry that you were dissapointed with the location of our hotel and the pricing as well.
Traverse City's hotel rates are at there highest during July and August. Hopefully you can
come back and join us at another time of the year when our rates drop down to lower rates.
Thank you for being our guest!

We chose this motel based on the great reviews. I'm sorry, I was not impressed. The area around the elevators shared its space with tables for the restaurant and it seemed crowded. No continental breakfast.
Our room was quite large, the decor was nice. The shower was a walk-in, but motels don't seem to be using fans anymore and everything fogs up. I think a small shelf in the shower would have been nice...I don't enjoy standing on my head to shave my legs! The sofa bed was not comfortable at all.

I am sorry that you were disappointed with your stay! The Cambria
Brand doesn't offer a complimentary continental breakfast, we all have
full service restaurants. I appreciate all of your comments as we are
always looking for ways to improve. Best Regards!

Always an excellent place to stay and very quiet on the 3rd floor. I'm a fan of the check in staff and always feel welcome. Wish you had more nights that jazz was being played on that beautiful piano!

My boyfriend and I vacationed here from June 20 - 22. The hotel is very clean and comfortable with a friendly staff and trendy atmosphere. I was also very pleased with the restaurant inside the hotel...surprisingly delicious! Our only issue was that this hotel is a few miles away from the "action" of Traverse City i.e.: the beach, bars, and restaurants. There is a complimentary shuttle that runs until midnight, but we missed the luxury of having these experiences within walking distance.

I've been traveling to TC for over 25 years. My wife is from here. For her 30th class reunion we tried another hotel. GROSS! Before we showered we looked for another place. Cambria staff accommodated our last minute request with a great rate and an early check in. When we walked in it was like Dorothy opening the door when her house was dropped in Oz. Our experience went from black and white to color! Clean and comfortable room, awesome lobby and the restaurant? We had the best meal in our own hotel than we did anywhere around town the entire trip! Go nowhere but downstairs to eat the food is 5 stars! Take it from someone who has traveled to Traverse City a bunch....STAY HERE!

We chose a large suite for a family stay and quick visit to TC and Interlochen. The hotel was clean, current, and easy. No issues during our stay and was pleased with the amenities in the room. We chose it based on TripAdvisor ratings and were not disappointed.

Easy access to Traverse City, Sleeping Bear, and Interlochen.
