Great hospitality. Great location. This hotel was as clean as we have ever stayed in. We could not be more pleased. Connie was a great host. She allowed us to take a peak in a room before we booked. She was very attentive to our needs and you could tell she takes great pride in making sure that her guests... More

We were just looking for a bed nothing fancy. The room was very clean. As soon as you walk in the room, it didn't smell like they used to much cleaning solution to mask anything, you can tell it was clean. The room was a nice size but to get to the bathroom was a little tight, the other bed... More

This motel is very nice and spotlessly clean. The lady has a great personality and she gave us a good price. I think I'll need to go back for a visit to check out the evening lights this motel has twinkling over the parking lot. Colored lights sparkled like a Christmas tree on the pavement. I forgot to look for... More

This was a great little motel. Rooms were spotless and the owners bent over backward to make sure our stay was excellent. They succeeded! The homemade muffins the owner saved for us, as we had to run bayshore, were greatly appreciated.

Wonderful and restful stay. We were greeted with a smile by the owner and given 2 rooms. The rooms were clean and had everything we needed including a microwave and mini fridge. We highly recommend the Sierra motel and our family will definitely stay here again!

We have stayed here for the past few years when we go up to Traverse City for the "Toast the Season" wine tour each fall. We never spend much time in the hotel so it is a great deal, especially since a lot of the other hotels around there are so pricey. It truly is a great value. The rooms... More

Came up to Traverse City for a snowshoe race and needed a place for the night. Nothing fancy, just a clean room with a reasonably comfortable bed. This place fit the bill perfectly at a very good price. This is an older-style (I suppose now it qualifies as "vintage") motel, on the main road near the waterfront, just outside of... More

Second time staying here and Constanza and family are wonderful, friendly and very accommodating. Long California flight and drive from Chicago arrived close to midnight with my sister and our two rooms were ready and super clean. My body and soul felt so rested. Appreciate WiFi, coffee maker. This will definitely be home whenever I visit TC. I've stayed at... More

Really great price for a busy weekend! Clean room, super hot water, just perfect for what I needed- great job! Seems like a family owned business in the middle of many big chain hotels, so I also felt good supporting a local small business. If I'm in traverse city again, I would definitely stay at Sierra motel!

I have travel a lot nationwide and over seas. This has got to the best service I have ever received at ANY business. My husband and I were so pleased we are sure we will be back on our next trip north. Don't change a thing. You are great.
