“Nice place on the bay.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2014

We have stayed here a couple of times now. Nice views of the bay. The rooms are very spacious and the Jacuzzi tubs are fun. The hotel is older but very well kept. Our last visit noticed that many of the rooms were being updated.

Room Tip: All rooms have a good view of the bay.

Had a family vacation with rooms next to each other. The view was exceptional.
The jacuzzi was wonderful. Loved having a refrigerator and kitchen in the room. Loved sitting on the balcony. The bed was very comfortable and everything was so clean. Will return.

I visited Traverse City for a wedding this past weekend. The wedding couple provided guests with a list of reserved rooms at suggested hotels. I chose Pointes North because it was the least expensive option and because the online reviews were favorable. I was pleasantly surprised by how nice this hotel turned out to be. The rooms were dated but clean. I stayed in room 303 which was very roomy. It had a vaulted ceiling with ceiling fan, king size bed, Jacuzzi tub with separate shower, water closet, microwave, coffee maker and a small couch/coffee table. The beds were not luxurious, but were pleasantly comfortable to my taste. Pillows were hard though--I should have brought my own. Patio doors with a sliding screen door led out to a small balcony with two plastic chairs which provided an expansive view of Lake Michigan and its refreshing breezes. There's also an outdoor pool, near the beach, which we didn't use. The beach is pretty private because there are swampy vegetative areas on either side of the well-kept sandy beach. There were lots of lounge chairs and cabanas on the beach. The staff was friendly and helpful, especially when our television was not working properly. They sent a maintenance man up to fix it promptly, the TV remote was useful for switching channels, completely useless for turning the TV on or off and adjusting the volume. The check-in clerk was very helpful with suggestions on how to make the most of our visit to the greater Traverse City area. Besides attending the wedding, we made time for Sleeping Bear Dunes where we hiked Pyramid Point Trail and did the Dune Climb. The wedding venue was gorgeous at Crooked Creek Ranch in Cedar. I would definitely stay at this hotel again because it was a good value and because it was a nice room with an excellent view.

Room Tip: I like the third floor, because you don't have foot traffic above you and the views are really n...

A friend and i came to experience a stress relief weekend and that we got...Pointes North did not let me down..Always clean, safe, very friendly staff and great people to ask for places to see and eat. (always ask the locals )..Room was in excellent condition, clean, no smells and a great view of the bay..sunrise to sundown..And the beach was always clean..no trash or glass to step on. I love to stay here due to its location...away from the city noise and traffic..We had a great time checking out the wineries, found petosky stones in remote bay locations and the weather was perfect...Thanks Pointes North staff...You did it again...See you soon...

My husband and I stayed here with our baby for a couple of nights while vacationing in Traverse City. The view from the hotel was beautiful looking out into the bay. The pool and beach were both nice. We had a 3rd floor room and we enjoyed the balcony with the beautiful view and our jacuzzi tub. The room was clean and spacious. We would stay here again!

We have stayed here many times and always have a great time. The rooms are clean and you have such an awesome view of the beach. Love the jauczzi also. Staff is so friendly. Perfect location to stay for shopping or wine tours. Would highly recommend this hotel.

If you're looking for a peaceful retreat in northern Michigan, we highly recommend Pointes North Hotel. With immaculate, well-appointed rooms, situated on a beautiful stretch of east Grand Travese Bay beach, the resort is definitely a winner!

If that weren't enough, the *magic* ingredient is the staff. A perfect representative of this exceptional staff is Shirley, who was recognized by the Governor's Conference on Tourism as the 2014 Star of Guest Relations. While she was the only one officially recongized, the rest of the staff is also wonderful. From housekeeping to front desk, maintenance to management, they all strive to meet your needs and make your stay as enjoyable as possible.

Pointes North has become our top choice for accommodations in the Traverse City area, and we think it might well become yours also.
