“Very nice little motel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

We needed a room at the last minute and pulled into this little motel, not expecting much. We were greeted by a nice lady, I believe her name was Connie?...she said the rooms are very clean several times....she showed us to the room and she was not kidding. Spotless...yes a bit dated, but well maintained and very clean. Room had a fridge, micro, cable and wifi. Best part is being able to back right up to your room to load and unload luggage. Thanks again for a great stay! Will stay again if in the area.

in a recent trip to TC, we found the Sierra to be exactly as described. Nice place to pull your bike right up to your room. The road noise is a bit annoying at first, but that a function of Traverse City in the mid-summer peak travel season. Connie and her husband Slim are sweet and they'll do whatever they can to make your stay as pleasant as possible. There is a great breakfast place a couple blocks away.

We booked room as it was very close to the airport. It suited our needs for an over night stay. the room was exceptionally clean with a small refrigerator and microwave huge screen television. My only con was coffee pot in room made lousy weak coffee.

The room rates are very affordable. Rooms spacious and clean. AC worked very well(it was in the mid 90's while we were there). The manager was very kind and accommodating. Would stay there again. Highly recommend!

My husband and I are very pleased with the accommodations at the Sierra Motel. It was incredibly clean and the owner was friendly and made us feel as if we were in her home. Actually,
we were, she lives on the premises, and you can see the pride she has in her place. each room has a Mini Fridge, Microwave, and Mr. Coffee w/ coffee packets. She had chairs outside our Rooms so we could sit and enjoy coffee and cocktails before and after our busy days with our dear friends who traveled with us. The Sierra Motel is situated right in the middle of some very large chain Hotels. The Sierra is quite charming, and we would definitally stay here again.,

My husband and I are very happy and satisfied with our stay @ Sierra Motel. The owners are very hospitable, made sure that our room is clean and presentable. When we enter the room you can smell the freshness of the room, well kept. The price is very affordable compare to other motels. We will definitely come back and will recommend to other people..PLACE IS VERY SAFE! GREAT LOCATION.. Good job Cony and Slim for serving us with a big smile.. .God bless...

The Sierra Motel is conveniently located on the main street that leads into downtown Traverse City. Our room with two queen beds was small but very clean and comfortable. Connie, the owner, is wonderfully friendly and helpful. She goes out of her way to provide whatever assistance a guest may need. Our bathroom was very small - perhaps painfully small for a large person; but the room had comfortable beds, a microwave, mini-fridge and flat screen TV.
