I stayed at the hotel for the weekend and was happy to see that although the hotel was older, the room was clean and quiet. It is a typical family owned small town motel that is not meant to provide great luxury, just an honest, friendly stay!

Rooms are clean but need a lot of work,the smoke detecter was sitting on the counter with the battery half out it had to be reinstalled and put back on the ceiling. The bathroom had a window but no curtain or screen, we had to fix the room window curtain and go buy clips to hold it closed. The 19... More

This is the most disgusting, dirty and downright unsavory place I've ever attempted to stay at. From the filthy mildew riddled checkin area to the falling apart stairwell to the dirty, smelly, bug infested rooms...this place is just downright gross. I have no idea where the motel pictures listed here are from but I guarantee they are NOT from this... More

By my title you may believe this will be a bad review. You are right if that is what you thought. The desk clerk seems to be confused anytime any question is asked. Does your motel have king beds? Do you have my reservation? When is check out? Why is my king size bed two double beds rather than the... More

Booked on Hotels.com. The room was dark and dirty, Not at all what we signed up for. Signed up for a King bed. Manager stated they have NO KING BEDS. Went thru a lenghty hassle to get out of staying without being charged. Do Not Recommend it. Went elsewhere.

1. Feces in the stool when we checked in. 2. Substance on carpet in front of bathroom moist and not cleaned. 3. No maid service after first day. 4. Desk clerk spoke broken English and understood a limited amount of English. Chose only because every hotel in area booked. Rates reflect a 3-4 star hotel. Reality is a half star... More

We stumbled upon this hotel after having a nightmare of an experience at another inn and finding every hotel in the Traverse City vicinity either completely booked or attached to a $200+ price tag. We just needed a place to rest for the night and this hotel worked out perfectly. The gentleman that checked us in spoke limited English but... More

I called to tell them our arrival time and that we had dogs. He (an older gentleman from India) seemed very befuddled and said he had no reservation for me. He also said that they did not allow dogs. He said he would call me back in 5 minutes. This was a very crowded resort area so I did not... More
