Nice but small for 2 couples... bathroom had a broken lock. Breakfast - coffee, juices, muffins... good. A/C, nice parking spaces, refrigerator (should have requested to have it turned on prior to our arrival), microwave... nice for one-night travelers.

The motel was a nice clean place to stay. Our room was a large room with 2 queen beds. It had a refrigerator and microwave. The owners and staff were very friendly. Had outdoor seating to enjoy outside from your room. Also in front of the motel. Sierra is also one level which was nice as well.

Sierra is a very old time family owned place, but they are fanatical in their cleaning and make their guests comfortable. It was quiet when we were there; the shower head was a little rough as I couldn't get my head under it and had to lift it to use it, other than that no complaints.

We stayed here on our honeymoon and loved the people and place so much that we stayed here on our way back home. The owners are friendly, accommodating and helpful. The rooms were clean and well kept. Loved having coffee in our room. The grounds and the outside of the motel are also well kept. We would recommend this place... More

We decided a few days before the weekend that we wanted to go to traverse city. It was difficult to find any place with vacancies, and I found this hotel on Google. It looked nice and had good reviews so we decided to try it. It ended up being a great place to stay and the staff was always very... More

The Sierra Motel was a great one night stay for our group of four. Before we booked this motel, the owner was great about answering our questions via email. The owner was super friendly when we checked in. She even allowed us to come behind the counter to use her computer to print our boarding passes. The rooms were very... More

We stayed here for two nights while on a motorcycle tour of the area. The owner is extremely nice and accommodating. The room was very clean, without a trace of the musty smell that is often found in motel rooms. Small muffins, coffee and "Sunny D" drinks are included in the room cost, enough food to sustain a hungry traveler... More

I have ridden by this motel many times, however, had never heard anything about the place. I had an opportunity to spend one night there and I will, no doubt, be recommending it to anyone in need of a clean inexpensive motel in Traverse City. The rooms were exceptionally clean and even though we were in what was referred to... More
