Last minute decision to get a room for a hospital visit. Happened to be during a very large festival on 4th of July weekend, so barely any rooms available in town. We've stayed here before so we're happy we found a room here, but not very excited about the weeknight price, although we knew it would be high during peak... More

I would be glad to stay here again. The staff were very friendly and helpful. With new management and improvements being made this will be a very nice place for the price. The location is great and beautiful view of Lake Michigan.

I'm not sure how this hotel got such mediocre ratings. I was seriously hesitant to stay, but the price was right and I went ahead and booked. I stayed two nights last weekend and it was the most comfortable bed I've found on the road in a long time. Everything was clean and the staff was super friendly and knowledgeable... More

Room over priced and the staff didn't seem to care about the noise or smoke that kept us up most of the night. Exhaust fan in the bathroom didn't work and there were stains on the wall from moisture running down.

The rooms were clean, comfortable, and a good size. The hotel does not have a pool, which was disappointing. The breakfast was included, but was meager. The rooms and the hotel in general need updating.

We had to book in May for end of June - the last weekend before Cheery festival. Lots of youth travel sports tournaments every weekend in TC, apparantly. The chain hotels were booked and the waterfront resorts were all double the price, so we went for low-end accommodations on this overnighter - and we got low-end accommodations!

Stayed for 2 nights. It was ok, but you get what you pay for. The room had an odor like it was heavily over deodorized. Every time we returned to the room we had to open the window.
