I almost hate to give this review...as I want to keep it a secret for myself...but it definitely deserves a good review. The rooms are clean and Beautiful and spacious! The private balconies have a beautiful peaceful view of the Bay. Yes, it is an older Place but it is very well kept. The front desk workers are always very nice and helpful with directions and suggestions. This is my favorite place to stay in Traverse!!

Room Tip: I have only stayed on the top floor. Beautiful view of the bay from the top floor ;)

Let me start with the negatives first, then we'll discuss all the positives about this place.

Although there weren't many things I could pick on, there were just a couple things this place lacked compared to the surrounding resorts. There's no indoor pool, or gym, or arcade or any of the usual "indoor comodities" most places around here offer, and there isn't someone at the front dest 24 hours a day, they leave at 9pm... but other than that there's really nothing to complain about.

Now for the positives, it's in a great location. Right on the Bay and about 5 minutes from downtown Traverse City. My husband and I came during the off season and paid $89 / night for a huge room with a Jucuzzi inside, and nearly all of the rooms have private balconies, which is great. The staff is very friendly, and the room was very clean. The hotel itself is a little outdated, they still have actual room keys opposed to key cards, but nothing to complain about. All in all it was a good stay for a good price, I would recommend it.

We are in Traverse City often, but this was our first stay at Pointes North. Loved it! Room was spacious and clean. Very comfortable on a cold winter's weekend! The view can't be beat, and the balconies are private. The TART trail is literally across the street, so zipped over for an early morning run. We will definitely stay again!

This was my first visit to Traverse City. My wife and I were thrilled with the accommodations and service. Linda who worked in the lobby was an excellent tour guide for the three day's we visited. Linda also gave great advise as to where we should eat each night. We will be coming back for sure.

Overall Pointes North was very enjoyable. The room was clean and spacious and there weren't any problems other than a lack of hot water in the evening when we wanted to take a soak in the jacuzzi tub. At check out the lady at the front desk said they were having some boiler problems, apologized and reduced our daily rate by $5. The view over the bay from our room was great and we would likely stay again.

This was our first trip to Traverse City and chose the Pointes North by recommendation. I checked the website and was sooo impressed. The weather was pretty rainy and gloomy all weekend but that did not matter. We absolutely loved everything about it. The view from our balcony. The jacuzzi, the staff and great. We will be definitely planning another vacation to Traverse City and Pointes North

This was our 3rd time staying at this hotel. It's not the most modern hotel but that doesn't matter to my wife and I. Very clean and comfortable room. We stayed in #107. Yes the floors of the room above creak a bit but not to the point of annoying. The Jacuzzi is a nice way to end the evening after a busy day of walking around the town. As many have mentioned the continental breakfast is limited. A cup of coffee, small muffin, bagel or a couple different cereals is the extent. Plenty of restaurant is town to get a great breakfast. We enjoy staying at the hotel and will definitely be back in the future.

Room Tip: If you don't like creaking floors try to get a room on the top (3rd) floor.
