“WOW, really impressed!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013

Stayed last weekend for an anniversary get away...super impressed. Had read some reviews but in no way realized what a nice room it would be. Super clean, amazing amenities, gorgeous view. Staff was friendly, no issues at all. Breakfast wasn't anything to write home about, but got us off to a good start anyway! read some previous reviews that said the carpet wasnt in good shape, etc...didnt see any sign of that, in fact looked like it had recently been replaced. All and all, great trip and would not hesitate to recommend anyone to head there for a great retreat.

Room Tip: We were in a suite with jacuzzi and fireplace! beautiful room with tons of space.

This was a decent place to finish our honeymoon. The room was large and spacious and we especially loved the jacuzzi. We enjoyed the location and the beach behind is very nice. The only negative comment is the free-for-all breakfast. We never got there early, so it was already packed and picked over. They keep it stocked, but we had even a hard time even finding a place to sit. It wasn't uncommon for us to just take it back to our room. I felt bad for the staff that had to maintain the breakfast room as it was messy and managing the families with kids had to be stressful.

Good day!

Thank you for your review and congratulations on your recent marriage. I hope you had a wonderful honeymoon and were able to enjoy our great town and region.

I'm sorry that the breakfast didn't work out for you as well as you expected. At times, the area can get quite busy. We offer overflow seating in our lobby are Sweet Shoppe areas, and we are currently looking at more ways to expand and improve the area. Our breakfast team does a great job by keeping things stocked and cleaned - all while carrying big smiles!

Thank you again. I hope you have a wonderful start to your marriage with many more blissful years to come!

Best,

My husband and I visited Traverse City for a short "mini vacation". We really enjoyed our stay at the Cherry Tree Inn. Our room was clean, and filled with nice features that made us feel pampered - gas fireplace, jacuzzi tub, king size bed, frig, microwave, and best of all, a beautiful view of the East Bay. We would love to return again someday and will definitely recommend this hotel to our friends.

Good evening!

Pampered is great when you are on vacation! Even a mini one! :)

I'm really happy that you enjoyed your stay enough to want to return and to recommend the Cherry Tree. Those are some of the greatest honors we receive for the hotel and the Cherry Tree Family.

Thank you so much and have a wonderful day!

This hotel was the perfect place for a two-night mid-winter getaway. We stayed in one of the two-room jacuzzi suites. The room was clean and quiet. The staff was always friendly. Breakfast was good, was kept full, and there was always room for us to sit down. (I especially liked the warm cherries for the waffles.) We are already looking forward to our next stay. (This hotel is normally not cheap. Watch for mid-week mid-winter specials.)

We have only one suggestions for improvement: It was difficult to turn the TV so it could easily be seen from the jacuzzi.

What I liked best about this hotel, is that my husband and I did not have to drive all over Traverse City to find a nice, affordable room. In fact, Cherry Tree was the first hotel we looked into and we did not have to search any further than that because we got a beautiful, clean, waterfront room at a great rate. Even the lobby, lounge, and dinning area were all immaculate and aesthetically pleasing. We felt comfortable right away, the service was wonderful, and the next time we travel to Traverse City we will be sure to again make Cherry Tree Inn our first and only choice for lodging.

Green Features: I was extremely impressed with this hotel's commitment to being environmentally friendly. Even the personal care products in our bathroom were made by a company that uses safe practices and gives back to the environment, and it was so refreshing that Cherry Tree encourages practices like these.

We stayed two nights at Cherry Tree inn for a mini family vacation. The rooms were clean, breakfast was great and every staff member we came in contact with asked us if we needed anything and if our room was ok. We will be coming back for sure.

Stayed a few days visiting family. From the time of making reservations to arriving to the Cherry Tree Inn we could not have asked for better. Professional, courteous, helpful. The breakfast was good too. The fresh baked cookies and wheat thins just added to the place. Our room had the greatest view of Grand Traverse Bay. We were only minutes from downtown and other attractions. Would stay again and not bother looking elsewhere.
