My family stayed in this hotel the first weekend in November 2012 because my husband did the Iceman Cometh Mountain Bike race. I originally booked the Hampton but discovered this was $10 cheaper/night (and right on the beach). We had a first floor king room w/ pull out sofa. It had a sliding door leading directly onto the beach, which we knew it would be too cold to take advantage of but the view was great. The room, which I'm assuming gets a lot of family use in the summer, not to mention a lot of sand tracked in, was immaculate!! Awesome newer looking bathroom with the more expensive granite tile -- not the typical hotel bathroom. Newer carpet, comfortable bed. Great continental breakfast - pancakes, cereal, coffee, juice, etc. Attentive staff, seems to be mom/pop owned. The lobby has a fireplace, lots of comfortable seating.
Our room was only $99/night since it was the "off season." The same room is $279 in July, which actually isn't bad for a Traverse City beach hotel. We came home and already booked the same room for next year's race.
