Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 7, 2013 via mobile

The interior of this hotel has been completely remodeled. The rooms are fresh and modern. The staff is friendly and helpful. The bed linens are crisp and comfy. The towels are surprisingly soft. The breakfast is outstanding. This hotel was a very pleasant surprise and a good value.

My husband and I stayed at the hotel for 2 days with another couple. We checked in on a Thursday and left on a Saturday. We were greeted by friendly and helpful front desk. They actually offer delicious fresh baked chocolate chip cookies while checking in.

Our room was clean and updated with a flat screen TV and bathroom was clean and also updated. As soon as we entered the room, we received a call asking if everything was OK. I thought that was a great gesture from the hotel to make sure it was to our liking. The bed was comfortable with only one complaint, the pillows were very uncomfortable. The same complaint came from our friends also.

They had complimentary breakfast in the lobby area that was very good. There was a wide variety of food that was worth going up for seconds. Once they closed most of the area they had breakfast, they still kept the carafes of coffee out for anytime you wanted it.

The pool area was clean and the pool and Jacuzzi was worth taking your suit for.

If you decide to stay, you won't be disappointed and we would stay there again.

We had the pleasure of staying here for three days. Our wonderful experience began with check-in where the young man could not have been nicer or more efficient. We were offered fresh baked chocolate chip cookies. Within a half hour of check-in the young man called to check if everything was satisfactory and whether we needed anything extra like towels or pillows. Unbelievable! The room had very modern furniture and decor and was exceptionally clean. The whole place looks either new or very recently remodeled throughout. Their pool area looks brand new. It was well maintained and the water was comfortable and crystal clear. They had the largest hot tub I have ever seen, It holds 13 people, but we always had it to ourselves. The temperature was divine and all the jets worked - which is a rare exception in my opinion. The breakfast was the highlight of our stay. Rarely do you find such diversity of offerings, including several healthy options, which are hard to find elsewhere. All the staff, including housekeeping and kitchen staff, were always very pleasant and accommodating. The best part was a great price for the value and quality we experienced. We will make a point to search for this hotel chain in the future.

I've been regular guest at the Traverse City, MI property while under it's previous affiliation. Since the property has been taken over by Carlson, we see many great improvements, including updated furnishings in the rooms, a much more complete and inviting breakfast, and increased attention to landscaping. The management team including Michael and Mike & Mark go beyond expectations to assure we were taken excellent care of. We're very pleased with the changes you've made, and will recommend Country Inn and Suites to others.I'll definitely book our future dates at your property when on the area on business.

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
