Here’s a very pleasant surprise! We booked on short notice, and used IHG points to get this property for free. We were concerned about the distance from Traverse City, but that was actually a non-issue.
The Assistant GM checked us in, and very kindly upgraded us to a small suite. (thank you IHG Gold status!) Our room had a king bed and a foldout couch, along with a microwave and fridge. VERY clean, very nice. Plenty of towels, lots of room. Solid wifi signal throughout.
We had breakfast two mornings here, and it was thorough and well prepared. Kiddo loved the pancake machine.
We enjoyed the pool each evening, too, with Kiddo splashing happily, whilst we enjoyed the hot tub/jacuzzi.
There is no restaurant here, but happily recommend both Franks BayView Inn (see my review) and Thatsa Pizza (see my review). The BayView is a short drive, while Thatsa Pizza is walking distance. Hint: If you order from Thatsa Pizza, do NOT have them deliver… just walk down the hill, across the Sleep Inn parking lot and around the fence, and there you are.
I did read prior reviews about things like noise, renovations, etc. YES, they are finishing renovations, and there were guys installing mirrors on our hallway. YES, I did see room doors which had a good 2 inch gap between the floor and the bottom of the door… (ours wasn’t one of those). That said, there were no smells, the carpets were clean, the wallcoverings were fully attached, and we were quite happy here.
Net: YES, the Gardiner family would return to this property.
