Reviewed August 22, 2012

Excellent location on the Bay. Beautiful sunsets. Always our preferred Traverse City location! Our stay in July 2012 was in a room recently renovated and very spacious. The heated pool was very enjoyable after a long day of sightseeing. The onsite breakfast was great. The staff was kind and ensured we had an enjoyable stay as always. We will be returning next year!

Stayed: July 2012, traveled with family

The Pointes North Inn delivered exactly what we needed. With its own private beach, breathtaking views, and rooms built for romance our weekend at Pointes North was perfect. We enjoyed taking part in all TC has to offer but loved the retreat feeling of a more secluded hotel offering. It is just minutes away from the hustle and bustle of the downtown area. The rooms are newly remodeled and the beds were very comfortable. I would definetly recommend this hotel to my friends and family. We cannot wait to plan our next trip to TC and stay at the Pointes North Inn.

Room Tip: All the rooms are beach front. What more could you ask for?

I just returned from a weekend in Traverse City and this hotel was clean, very quiet, and had a great view with a real nice beach. Would give it 5 stars, but the continental breakfast was a joke. Would consider staying here again.

I just returned from Traverse City for a girl's weekend away. The hotel is clean and the view is great. The staff is friendly and they have a pretty decent continental breakfast. However, none of that will help when you wake in the morning with a stiff, sore back. The mattresses are awful! It will take a full week at the chiropractor to fix my low back. I would not recommend staying at this hotel if you have back problems. Also, the shower head is sooooooooo strong that it threatens to remove very important body parts. It was like standing in front of a power sprayer. I feel bad writing a poor review because the hotel has so much potential. I'm not sure that we will ever choose this hotel again.

We just returned from a weekend stay at Pointes North INN. We have been to Traverse City numerous times, but our first time at Pointes North Inn. The location is perftect - it's not right in the heart of town, but only a short drive to downtown Traverse City. The hotel is very clean and the staff is extremely friendly and helpful. It's one of the few hotels in Traverse that has an outdoor pool. You can request rooms right off the pool which is great for families. We really enjoyed the view of bay and can walk out quite distance before the water is deep. The rooms are very spacious with a fridge and microwave. Our room had an inroom jacuzzi, which we enjoyed after a full day a activities. We will definitely stay here again the next time we are in Traverse City

Room Tip: We had a room which was poolside. Next time I would get a first floor room, but not off the pool...

We love the Pointes North Inn and have been there several times at different times of the year. Each time we are never disappointed. It's great being just outside the main hustle of downtown. Love being able to walk out the door of the room and right onto the beach.

A wonderful find just on the edge of the hustle and bustle of Traverse City. Peaceful corner of the main drag where you can enjoy their bit of green space and beach. Get your morning coffee and go sit on the shore for a leisurely start to the day. Our room was excellent with everything we need - modern and clean. We will stay here again and again for sure.
