“Great place to stay!”
Reviewed February 20, 2013

Had a ton of problems at Howard Johnson down the street and had to find another hotel fast cause the snow was coming! Chose this place and what a great choice! Very reasonable rate and was well worth it. Great views of the bay, which is still breathtaking in winter, a Jacuzzi tub that actually was very quiet, microwave, good sized mini-fridge, separate shower and very comfy beds. Staff is all professional, friendly and knowledgeable. Everything was crisp, clean and didn't have odor.

It's a nice hotel, more of a nice motel though. The walk all the way up to the room was very chilly. I can see it would be better enjoyed in the spring or summer. The room was updated, but the pillows were flat. I wished I had brought my own. The jacuzzi was enjoyable, though incredibly loud. Overall, I'd stay again in warmer weather.

We love staying at this place, a great value for a jacuzzi room with kitchenette. Rooms are clean and up to date. The view is beautiful. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. The hotel is a bit north of downtown, but it's still close enough to be convenient.

I picked this resort because of the waterfront location for my kids, unfortunately we were there during the coldest weekend of the summer! The staff at Pointes North was awesome and helped us find kid friendly activities that didn't involve the cold beach!! The pool was heated so the kids still had a great experience. The view from our room was beautiful.

My only complaint was the room was very old fashioned. For the price we paid, I would expect more modern accommodations. The tv barely worked and the furniture looked like it was from the 80s. Despite the decor, my family and I had an awesome time!

I'll start with the positives. The staff is incredibly friendly and helpful! The view was great, room was very clean, neat mini kitchenette area was helpful. Unfortunately, after turning on the jacuzzi, we discovered that it leaked onto the carpet. That would explain the musty smell coming from the bed area (near the jacuzzi). We enjoyed our stay aside from this issue, but it really turned me off. So much so that I couldn't even sit in the bed to watch tv in the morning. We'll try somewhere else for our next trip to TC.

This is our favorite hotel to stay in when we go for our annual anniversary weekend to Traverse City. The jacuzzi is marvelous, beds are comfy and the little kitchen area is very handy. Even in winter the view from the balcony is lovely.
