“Nice Hotel, Nice location, could use some improvements”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2012

This is hotel is slightly off the main drag into Traverse City and backs onto some nice wooded views. The lobby seatig area is large and pristine and the hotel is very well kept up. The room design is poor with respect to a very small sink area with the mirrored closet right behind it so only one person can use any of the washroom facilities at one time to brush teeth apply make up dry hair etc. The towels were pretty thin for the caliber of hotel and the shower was intermittently operating. The bedding was very nice. Has a nice pool and 24 hour fitness facility.

Great service, good rooms and good food in the Bistro. Many rooms have a patio or balcony. The pool and spa were relaxing.. Nice patio with a fire pit.The only negative would be if you want to be near the waterfront or downtown. Those are about 3 miles away.

We stayed at the Courtyard because we ended up arriving a day early in Traverse City, and our lake-front hotel didn't have a room available. The Courtyard is exactly what you'd expect from a Courtyard -- I do lots of business travel and stay at Courtyards all over the country. Clean, comfortable, very friendly staff -- all good. My suggestion, however, is that if you are going to Traverse City on vacation, you'll want to be in one of the lake-front hotels and closer to the downtown shopping/eating area -- there are many and the price ranges are wide (many rooms on the lake were less expensive than at the Courtyard). Again, the Courtyard is exactly as advertised, and a solid value if you are in Traverse on business.

I'm pretty amazed at this property as far as location, size of the room and interior ambiance. Its probably one of the cleanest, nicely decorated and colorful hotel's i've stayed at this entire year. Again, to keep it short and to the point:

Location- about 2 miles from Downtown Traverse City. You can actually see the lake off in a distance from the hotel (3rd floor). Best Buy across the street and a Shell Gas Station which also has Diesel (Low Sulfur).

Pros: Larger Rooms, Location, Cleanliness, Polite Staff, New Hotel Feeling, Colorful, Comfortable Beds, Pull out Desk, Flat Screen TV with HDMI and multiple outputs, power sockets next to beds on headboard lamps. Internet Speed according to SpeedTest.net is Download: 4.54 mbps and Upload: 0.74 mbps.

Cons: Soap bars not as nice as other hotels (Neutrogena)... yes, i know ,..its being picky, but it matters to some people, so I mentioned it :)

Overall: you will NOT be disappointed. For the price its well worth it!

This Courtyard is near the "mall" on the outskirts of town but is a great place to stay if you have car and don't mind driving. It's updated, rooms are well-equipped with flat-screen tv's (always a good sign) and there's a Bistro in the lobby with very cool booths (each has it's own tv), basic food and drinks. If you are familiar with and like the Courtyard brand you'll love this hotel.

Room Tip: rooms with double beds seem to be larger than kings. in you get in late ask for an upgrade to a suit...

Staff was very friendly and helpful, went out of their way to help me with small things. Looks newly renovated, lots of modern furnishings and decor. My mom and I were there for 2 nights and loved it. Great deal!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2011

This is a good, clean choice for Traverse City. Although not downtown, (only 5-10 minute drive) still a good location close to mall and restaurants. Stayed here and saw Matt Giraud at the Opera House downtown (Fabulous!). Did not use the pool but it looked nice and clean, also did not eat/drink anything in the Lobby restaurant, looked nice, but overpriced.
Only complaint is some rude loud people about midnight in the hallway, the walls are clearly not well insulated for sound. Also could plainly hear the couple next door talking, (not yelling). If you are a sound sleeper or have ear plugs shouldn't be a problem. Perhaps this is a older building, although, newly and nicely remodeled.

Room Tip: Great shopping downtown, Opera house is fantastic for a show. J&S Hamburg, good little diner.
