“We would stay here again!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2013

We were pleasantly surprised by the rooms; spacious, comfortable bedding, clean modern bathroom. Only problem we encountered was the refrigerator would not cool and the staff attended to that as soon as we notified them. The pool/hot tub is open 24 hrs, nice bonus. We did not use the shuttle but it is a nice amenity. The made to order omlettes were very good and very large! The staff was friendly, curtious and knowledgable of the area. We enjoyed the evening bar tender, very personable. There was a small jazz band on sunday night in the lobby by the fireplace, nice with a comfortable atmosphere. We liked that the hotel was not huge and gave us a more personable feeling. Usually we stay at a hotel with a beachfront but the beaches are so close it wasn't a problem.

The staff was very helpful, but for the money I was surprised we needed to talk to them at all. There were only enough towels for three in the room and we had to call down. The front desk was very helpful pointing out the best entrance/exit to use to load/unload our gear. The suite room had a separate master, but no additional bathroom. Beds/sheets were excellent!. Although the room was very nice, for the money it was not a great value.

We're very particular and expect a well maintained property, not one that's worn. Cambria has clean, fresh rooms with good air quality and a spotless bathroom. We were greeted by intelligent, efficient and warm desk staff and enjoyed the peace and quiet during the night. Our parking lot side room curtains and shade met the end of track with a gap so we were awakened by the morning light. Nice espresso bar and patio. All around nice hotel.

...does it all match the price?
To be fair, we don't usually stay at hotels in resort towns- normally we're in a time-share so we're not use to the in-season prices. My husband thought this was a bit pricey for what he experienced.
This hotel is clean, quiet and yes- the shuttle is nice- but we walked too - it's about 1.5 miles from the center of town.
Clean, classy furnishings- but our sofa and pillows in the sitting area had stains.
Bed was fine but bedding wasn't top-notch.
The bathroom sink was classy- and the open shower was just fine- but if you're tall, don't set the shower head too high or the room gets wet.
Small fridge and microwave with nice counter space.
Two tvs in the room.
Morning paper, nice fitness area, small indoor pool, free wifi, breakfast buffet was plentiful and made-to-order omelets were great.
Beautiful lobby area, bar and lounge. Friendly staff, especially our shuttle driver.

This is a great hotel, very clean, new, very attractive. This place is fairly new and it show, compare to other hotel in TC I would say this is the best, you do feel that you are in an upscale place. Compare to others such as the Park Place or the Grand Traverse resort & spa I would choose this place hand down....

The room are big and well lay out. The bed are very comfortable and the shower are very spacious. Nice pool and free wifi. Also you do have a mini gym at the location. This hotel has a really nice bar at the entrance of the lobby and also it has small restaurant.

I would say the only drawback its not in downtown, so you will need to drive each time....

The Good: Everything, free wifi, pool, gym,

The Bad: Location 5min drive from Downtown TC

Traverse City is a lovely vacation area. My husband and I have been there several times and stayed at decent hotels. This time we were pleasantly surprised to find Cambria Inn, a truly upscale facility. The staff is friendly and helpful. Their services even included a bus and driver who took us anywhere in town we wanted to go, and when we were ready to return to the hotel, we just called for a pick up. The lobby is very attractive and has a bar; a handsome, modern fireplace; and comfortable seating for visiting. Our suite was immaculate and beautifully decorated. The mattress was of high quality--my husband commented on this. The biggest surprise of all was the excellent food. We plan to return to Traverse City next year and hope we can stay there. Linda B

It was a welcome note at this clean, attractive hotel located near the lake, that transportation was provided. The town is very busy in the summer time so having van transportation provided by the hotel was a surprise treat for us. The meal that we had in the hotel on our second night in town was comparable to a meal in a fine, big city farm to table type restaurant. I had huge driver scallops with a mushroom reduction and fresh sauteed vegetables and my partner had the meatloaf, which he said was better than my home made. While we don't usually do desserts, here we tried the cherry bread pudding and a creme brulee. Both were freshly made with cherries from the area and creme brulee that was just barely set --rich, warm and heavenly.
This combination of an almost new hotel with attentive staff and a fine food restaurant was just what we needed for our vacation in TC

Room Tip: We enjoyed the great free coffee in the lounge in the mornings--it was an upscale brand with several...
