Pointes North Beachfront Resort Hotel

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 15, 2012

We have stayed in this hotel many times over the past 10 years. What we like the most is the location and how all the rooms have East Bay views. Another nice feature is to be able to have a microwave and small refridgerator available in our room because we enjoy bringing some of our own drinks/snacks to cut down on the costs of eating all our meals out. The jacuzzi tub is an added bonus and we always enjoy that as well. The rates are more than reasonable, the people are extremely friendly/helpful and every time we stay whether it's in the Spring, Summer or Fall...we are never let down with our experience at this hotel.

We can't wait to get back up there again soon to enjoy the upcoming Fall season colors....we love OMP (Old Mission Peninsula) and by staying at Pointes North, its so close for us to hit all the wineries on OMP, go to the casino and take a leisurely bike ride along the bay.

Before I review, one recommendation for this hotel: request a room on the top floor. I stayed on the 2nd floor and could hear the people above me walking around quite a bit. It didn't ruin may stay by any means, and I'd gladly stay on the 2nd floor again, but next time i'll definitely request top floor.

Overall this is a great hotel, for the price! It's on the water, about 4 miles East from downtown Traverse City Every room has a balcony and view of the water. Our room had a jacuzzi and living room sitting area. Not sure if every room is set up this way. It also offers a Private beach, with a nice heated pool. Free continental breakfast in the morning, and free wi-fi in each room as well. All this for $130 on a Saturday.

I must point out that this is a privately-owned hotel, which means you're not going to deal with all these rules and regulations. If you need something and it makes sense, they will take care of you. For instance, I needed to print a document from my email account and fax it. They allowed me to sit behind the front desk, print out my document, and use their fax machine. It saved me a TON of time compared to using the 'business centers' at a chain hotel, which are a total rip-off.

I would highly recommend this hotel for anyone staying in Traverse City.
However, if you fall into any of the categories below, I would search for another hotel:

-You want luxury (meaning, you need to stay in a room with cherrywood cabinets and down comforters)
-You need to be close to downtown Traverse City (this hotel is about 4 miles down the street).
-You need a fitness center.

Enjoy your stay!

Room Tip: Choose a top floor room (eliminates noise from above rooms)

We stay at Pointes North Inn whenever we come to Traverse City. Shirley is fantastic and will get you whatever you need. The housekeeping is awesome as well, and the view is fantastic. I suggest anyone coming into Traverse City to book your reservation here!!

Very nice clean comfortable place. Nice staff. Beautiful view. The only thing to keep in mind is the busy road behind and also the balconies are very close. You could look into the room next to you if you wanted. Also the pool is small and very close to the rooms. So if you want more seclusion not the best place. But I think that is true for all the places on the East Bay. There is just no a lot of space. So given that, I would highly recommend.

My friend and i have been at this hotel 3 times...Every time, it has been an awesome experience..From sunrise to breathtaking sunsets, this is our place..Each and every time, rooms very clean, staff are great at getting you around traverse with advice on places to see...A great bottle of wine from the locals and an evening in the jacuzzi...what else could you ask for??? Besides a full moon lit night reflecting off the water...If you want peace and getaways, i (we) highly recommend it..will be back soon for fall colors..

Room Tip: we like the higher floor rooms..quieter..cannot hear the people and feet walking about.

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!

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?
