We rented the two bedroom suite for an evening while in the Traverse City area. Upon entering the suite we were blown away by how clean this place looked and smelled - I'm talking absolutely immaculate. The suite included a full size fridge and microwave as well as kitchen sink and cabinets fully stocked with plates, glasses and utensils. We could have easily spent a week here and felt very comfortable the entire time. The wifi worked great and cable was basic but met our needs. The suite offered central a/c which worked perfect and a very large bathroom. The decor was very cute and fitting for a Northern Michigan mom & pop. The lady at the front desk was very friendly and accommodating. They offered delicious homemade muffins in the office in the morning. Great value for being a 10 minute drive from Traverse City. Would gladly stay here again!

Room tip: The two bedroom suite is perfect for a family.

We recently returned from our 6th or 7th stay at the Interlochen Motel. We visit Traverse City for the film festival every summer, and have also stayed in the off season, just because we enjoy this area so much. If you're looking for a chain hotel with all the amenities, this isn't it. If you like old-fashioned charm, a quiet setting amongst the trees, and local color, you'll probably enjoy this motel.

In all of our stays here, we've never had any of the bad experiences that others have written about - we've always been treated well, found the owners to be friendly and very helpful, and had a clean room. We appreciate the complimentary coffee and muffins each morning, as well as the convenience of an in-room microwave and mini-fridge. We also like the fact that they are environmentally friendly and part of a "Being Green" energy-saving, solar, and recycling program.

We'll be back again next year!

This motel is old, dirty carpets, dirty bedspreads and what ever they use to clean smelled so strong it was toxic......I will never stay here again. Thankfully it was only one night. The strong odour made it difficult to breath, really effected my asthma. Do not stay here!!!!! Not even if you're desperate!

This motel is pretty old, but they've updated some of the rooms and it was decent/clean. I would recommend it if you are in a pinch. We were visiting family during Cherry Fest and it was the only thing we could find that was reasonably priced within driving distance to Traverse City.

Room tip: Decent/Clean rooms.

we were very disappointed in the motel. We ended up leaving early. After a long day spent in Traverse City, we arrived back at out hotel to find we still had wet towels and our bed was still unmade. When we complained to the manager to let him know we were unhappy nothing was done to correct the situation. I contacted the owner after arriving home, and asked for a refund on the second night that we left, she also told me "sorry about your bad luck". We would never recommend this hotel and we will never return. The place was very small, furniture old and worn and the price was high for the accomodations.
