“Totally Impressed”
Reviewed September 28, 2013

We have been to Traverse City many times and stayed at various locations downtown, but we have found the one and only place we will always return to in the future at the Country Inn and Suites when in Traverse City. The front desk greeted us with genuine hospitality, especially Michael, upon arrival. We found the room to be fantastic! We found candy, chips, water and fruit upon entering the room! That doesn't happen very often! There was a jacuzzi tub in the bedroom and a fireplace, as well as a dining room, four chairs, fridge, microwave, coffee maker, sofa and two flat screen televisions! The bathroom was very, very clean and there were plenty of towels for just the two of us. The carpeted floor passed the "white sock test" with walking without shoes and socks always looked/stayed clean and white. The room was perfectly cleaned everyday during our stay and the housekeeper remembered we preferred only regular coffee and provided us with extra coffee each day of our stay! It was very quiet at night and the bed was very comfortable for sleeping. We did transfer to another room to have a king size bed the next day of our stay, which Michael graciously arranged and even had treats placed in the new room as well! This will be the only place we will stay in the future when in Traverse City!

Just leaving after a 2 day stay for a wedding here in Traverse City. The hotel was everything one would expect. Started off the morning with probably the best breakfast I have had at a hotel in years. Then followed that up with a workout in their gym which was very nice. It had everything somebody needs to get a quick workout in before you leave for the day or upon return. Very nice treadmills, elliptical, bike and lifting equipment. They also just got in a brand new huge set of dumbbells which is rare for most hotel training facilities. Rooms very nice and spacious and very friendly staff (it can be difficult putting up with wedding goers, but they were great). I would definitely recommend this hotel whether you are here for a quick business stay or taking vacation to see the many sites of Traverse City, MI

We showed up to breakfast 30 minutes late. The staff went out of there way to make us up a plate of food before refilling out coffees and sending us on our way. The room was just a room but the services gets this hotel a 5.0!

This hotel was an unexpected treat. The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful, the rooms were comfortable and clean, the pool and outdoor lounging spaces were very relaxing and the breakfasts were done very well and offered a good assortment of food items. These items as well as a very competitive rate made it a great choice for a getaway and we will do it again, I am sure.
This seems to be a well staffed and well maintained hotel at good rates--- a nice value.
