The location, in proximity to Traverse City and right on the motel's own private section of beach was wonderful! Every room has a beach view. Didn't think about it ahead of time, but gratefully, there's no smoking on the balconies/patios either. Would have ruined it if we had to smell nasty cig smoke from other's balconies. Clean, attractive, spacious room. Free continental breakfast of cereal, yogurt, bagels, mini-muffins, oatmeal packets, etc., was basic but fine. We would stay there again!
