“smack dab on the beach!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2014

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!

Room Tip: All rooms had view of beach and either a balcony or patio. I'm glad our balcony was not directly...

This was our first time to Traverse City and we absolutely LOVED it! We only wish we could have stayed longer! Clean, comfortable and quiet rooms. Easy to find! The beach was so nice and clean! We definitely plan to come back and stay longer next time!

My husband and I stayed at Pointes North for our 1 year anniversary and we were delighted with the room on the 3rd floor, it had cathedral ceilings, was very clean and had a slider which led out to our own private deck overlooking the Bay. Nice little continental breakfast, perfect for taking out and enjoying on the lounge chairs on the beach. Highly recommend this hotel, you will not be disappointed!

Room Tip: the 3rd floor rooms are the most spacious and have a great view!

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...
