I can't say enough about our stay at the Comfort Inn! Friendly and helpful service, nice comfortable bed, big TV, hot tub (in the room and by the pool), freebies at the front desk (cookies, cough drops, etc.), good exercise equipment, bottle of wine (from print-out coupon) all made for a wonderful stay. Of course, I'm sure the weekend was helped by the record warm weather that TC got that weekend. Actually had the window open the first night for the fresh air, but found that it was too warm, so stuck with AC after that. The only negatives (and this is really nit-picking) were that the AC was loud when it went on, and there was no TV guide available to tell what channel each number on the TV was. We will probably stay here again next time we are in Traverse City!

Room Tip: As others have said, second floor at the back, away from the road, are the quietest rooms.

Liked: Great location, close to everything. The pool is five feet deep (some hotels' pool only go to three or four feet deep). Decent breakfast with eggs, sausage, peeled grapefruit slices (loved that!), waffles, OJ, coffee, cereal, yoghurt, biscuits and gravy. We were not bothered by any noise.

Disliked: too much chlorine/chemical in the pool! My skin was very irritated and itchy, even after showering. It snowed several inches overnight...the parking lot was only partially plowed and NOT salted. There was a layer of ice where water was dripping from the roof/gutter outside the main entrance. I tossed and turned a lot...can't exactly pinpoint what was so uncomfortable about the bed.

Would we stay there again? Yes, but only if we couldn't get a room somewhere else or it was less expensive to stay here.

This is the second time we've stayed here for hockey. It is clean, beds felt comfortable and great flat screen tv. The only down side was that the rooms were very warm. There was a group of us staying there and many opened windows to cool it down.

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights and it was wonderful! The beds and pillows are very comfortable...and even though we were at ground level right near the parking lot, we couldn't hear all the noise or see the light from the headlights. The place was clean and the staff were friendly. They had a really good continental breakfast buffet. I would have given it a 5 rating, but the only problem we had was with the very small parking spaces. They are so small and close together that you barely have enough room to get out of your car without hitting the one next to you. If you want to avoid getting your car door hit, park in the back on an end and slightly up on the curb. If you go out to eat and have kids...go to Bubbas,I think it's on Mondays kids eat for free...but beware, there are long lines out the door. We waited 30 minutes to be seated, but it was so worth it! You must visit the Stone Cold Creamery....yummy ice-cream! I had chocolate, banana, and strawberry mixed together on a waffle cone. You must go to the Underground Cheesecake Company..more yummy goodness. Check out the Cherry Republic store for all your cherry treats...tasty salsas and free samples including wines and sodas. If you love shopping and restaurants, go to The Village At Grand Traverse Commons.

Room Tip: I know this sounds bad, but...even if you aren't handicapped, the handicap room is the cheapest...

Our family stays at this hotel many times a year by choice. We now have friends and family that stay there also.

Our kids love the 24 hr. pool, staff is excellent at all times.

Very decent free breakfast, good enough to keep picky kids happy !!

Located on the main strip, great location.

Thanks

We stay at Choice hotel properties all over the country and this one is a winner! Checked in late evening. Desk clerk was extremely friendly and helpful. Our room was the one 2Q plus sleeper sofa in the hotel. The room was HUGE! It had a flat screen TV, mini fridge, microwave and coffee pot. Beds are good sized with plenty of pillows. Pool area is nice with hot tub attached to pool. You can check on the kids playing in the pool from a window across the elevators on the second floor. There is a wide selection at the complimentary breakfast, including waffles, eggs and biscuits/gravy.

Added bonus thanks to Trip Advisor - we printed a coupon online for a free bottle of wine at check-in and received a nice bottle of Reisling from the Grand Traverse Winery. Thanks, Trip Advisor!! :)

Room Tip: Avoid rooms that are close to the road as there is a lot of traffic. We did not hear it from our ro...

Just spent a 3 day weekend in Traverse City, stayed at the Comfort Inn. Room size was comfortable, with 2 beds, plus really nice sink with roomy counter in the bedroom which was great for applying makeup, doing hair and spreading out, plus location of it left bathroom free for others to use. The room also has a small refrigerator which we definitely used. We did not use the pool area but saw others using it. We were most impressed with the staff, especially at the front desk. Everyone was cheerful and helpful.
