Nice, quiet family hotel; very friendly and helpful staff; Rooms were normal size and clean and comfortable. Nothing special We needed a nice hotel to sleep in after a days of traveling and Howard Johnson's facilities were fine for us.

Room was clean and staff very friendly. Not flexible with check in time. Cheaper than Hampton Inn, but not nearly as nice. Much more of a commercial hotel for workers. I am surprised this is part of Wyndham chain. Old time bed spread and blanket that may not be changed after each guess.

During my visit, I stayed in a room with a King size bed. I did not experience the breakfast, so I cannot comment on that. Traverse City is a popular destination, so I thought the hotel rate was reasonable considering the location. With its location off Munson Avenue, it was within easy driving distance of downtown and other areas nearby.... More
