“Can't wait to go back”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

We made an impromptu trip to Traverse City and rather drive the 6hrs home, we did a last minute hotel deal and got a room at the Country Inns and Suites. We arrived to friendly, competent staff who were apologetic because their "fresh made" cookies weren't still warm.
The room was spacious and immaculate. I am one of "those people" who have yo have their own pillow, so I was worried. But once I laid down, I realized that not only was the bed incredibly comfortable but the pillows were the most comfortable I have ever slept on, even compared to mine.
The next morning, we attended breakfast. It was hot and delicious. There were several attendants who made sure things were stocked and clean.
Check out was a breeze.
We enjoyed our stay so much, we will be going back next month. Can't wait!!

After taking an impromptu trip to Traverse City, we decided to stay a night instead of driving 6 hrs home. Chose this hotel based on a last minute hotel deal. We arrived to friendly and accomodating staff that offered to make fresh cookies for us because the ones they had had sat long enough to be cold. Our room was spacious and comfortable. I am a person who has to have "my" pillow but the bed and pillows were the most comfortable we have ever had. Even better than "my" pillow. Breakfast was great and there were several attendants who were making sure things were clean and stocked. Check out was a breeze.
We are returning to Traverse City in August and will be staying here again. We can't wait.

This was under Grand Opening when we stayed - parking lot a bit jumbled but its workable.

Get second floor rooms if at all possible. First floor parking right outside rooms is a bit noisy.

Nice breakfast.....esp liked the coffee they had here.

Our first trip to Traverse was very enjoyable. The hotel accomodations were new, clean and comfortable. The staff was very pleasant and helpful. The pool and patio area were great. The breakfast was one of the best I've had, a different selection each day. I would definitely stay here again. It is centrally located to downtown, public beaches, restaurants and attractions. Thanks for the wonderful stay.

Room Tip: We stayed on the second floor away from the elevator in the main building. We over looked the patio...

We stay in your hotel July 3-5, 2014. We had a wonderful time, our room was pretty like any other rooms that I have stayed in across the country, they were clean and standard. The breakfast was standard, served hot and the area was clean, enjoyable. The thing that made your hotel stand out and the reason I am writing this is you staff, I really can't say enough, the breakfast staff went over and above. The front office were friendly and very helpful, we had a problem with our TV we told the front desk "no hurry we will be out all day", by the time we walked back to the room maintenance was there and solved the problem. I have been in the service industry for more years then I care to admit, I know serving the public can be challenging to say the least, and I know this level of service does not come easy, hiring and training is the key. Your staff always had a smile on their face and a welcoming attitude. Congratulation job well done. Your hotel and staff made our stay feel like a 5 star vacation. Thank-You!

My husband and 1 year old just stayed at the Country Inns & Suites for 3 nights. Our room was a suite.

Overall it was a great experience! The room was very clean, the staff were very friendly and the breakfast was fantastic! The location of the hotel is pretty good, close to restaurants, the beach and a short drive to downtown.

The pool was great and very warm. I would stay here again and would defiantly recommend!

We stayed at the Country Inn & Suites in Traverse City, for 1 week starting July 4th, 2014. Its location is close to downtown. We were very impressed with our overall stay. The hotel staff was very polite and friendly throughout our stay, especially with it being a very busy week during the National Cherry Festival, and being full. We were greeted with fresh baked cookies at the front desk when we checked in. Our "2 queen beds room" was spacious, clean, and comfortable. We even had a 2nd chair to sit in, along with the large rolling desk chair. The room rate was affordable, even being at the height of the tourist season. Our rate was a lot less than our usual hotel's that we have stayed at for several years past. The large indoor pool w/ hot tub was enjoyable. The free hot breakfast was plentiful.The outdoor patio is great with lots of tables w/ umbrellas and chairs for relaxing in outside. Many guests enjoyed having
their breakfast there. The hotel lobby was very spacious also, with its extra sofas, fireplace, large TV, 2 computers, and lots of tables and chairs...and its coffee/tea/hot chocolate station.
We vacation in Traverse City, twice each summer. We went ahead and changed our next hotel stay over to this Country Inn & Suites...very impressed.
