“Great Place to Stay”
Reviewed April 5, 2012

My girlfiends and I stayed here for an overnight getaway. Very nice facility! Clean, they are making some beautiful renovations. We were at the hotel very little, but we had a beautiful room! We will certainly stay here again. The front desk was very accomodating, although we were headed to the casino (we were told there were multiple shuttles) When we arived at 7 pm on Friday, the next shuttle was not until 8:45.... So we took a Cab ($30). Other than the shuttle issue, we had a marvelous stay!

Hello!

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay at our hotel. I'm pleased you enjoyed your stay. I apologize for any confusion with the shuttle. We have two options. First, we offer our own shuttle that will operate based on shuttle availability. You can reserve ahead of time and we'll make every effort to shuttle you to downtown Traverse City, the casino, or the airport. Second, Turtle Creek Casino does offer their shuttle each evening. It arrives at our hotel at 6:15, 8:45 and 11:15 PM. Both shuttles are complimentary.

I'm pleased you enjoyed our renovations as well. We're very proud of them and happy to have them coming to completion in May.

Thank you again and have a wonderful rest of spring. Please visit again and see our renovations.

Best,

Jonathan P.

My wife and I stayed at the Cherry Tree Inn for a weekend getaway. We had an absolutely lovely stay. The front desk was very friendly, our room seemed nice and clean, and they have a great location right on the bay, close to Old Mission Peninsula and not too far from downtown Traverse. We both talked about how the place would have been great for a longer stay in the summer, too. It seems that they've also been doing some renovations on the place which tells me that they're trying to keep it up and not let it go like some of the other waterfront resorts/hotels.

Room Tip: Choose a room that overlooks the bay! The view definitely made our room/stay more enjoyable

We have stayed at the Cherry Tree quite a few times over the years. Our most recent stay was this last February for a quick get away with friends. We have never been disappointed with the service from the staff or the cleanliness of the rooms. We stayed in a smaller room this last time, but have also stayed in the larger suites with balconies and beautiful views.

Their off season deals are wonderful, and we generally prefer the "off seasons" any way, not only for the deals but being able to get around Traverse City, which has grown so much over the last 20 years since we've made it our close to home getaway.

We recommend highly for a couples getaway, or for a friends getaway weekend trip to shop and dine out.

Room Tip: The smaller rooms are fine if you are going to spend alot of time away, but if you are going for a r...

I was in Traverse City for business. The rooms were clean and spacious and the staff friendly and personable. The wireless internet worked on the first try. I would definitely stay here again when returning to Traverse City.

Absolutely wonderful get away. This was my friend and mine first time attending this event and we are already excited for the next one. They offer this in November and March and you can't beat the price. We could not believe how well planned this event was and how much food there was. We had our nails done, did wine tasting, learned about cooking with oil and vinegars, had a workout class, decorated cupcakes, met other women just like us and ATE. The hotel was so clean and welcoming but the management really stood out. Jonathan, the general manager there, was the most gracious person who had such a warmth about him, and this obviously was reflected in the rest of the group of employees. I really can't say enough about our entire experience, except that we will be back for the next event, as well as when my husband and I can get away up to Traverse City. There is no doubt where we will be staying. Thank you for the wonderful get away from reality for a bit. See you soon.
