We stayed on a Sunday-Monday night. The rooms were very nice but there were no micro/fridges in the room. Front desk clerk Emily was very helpful as we had a problem in the bathroom of the first room they gave us. Pool and hot tub could have used a little cleaning as there was a scum buildup on upper tiles. The breakfast bar was outstanding and had a very good selection.

Room Tip: Do not rent the King room with shower only(very slippery floor).

The Traverse Area Recreation Trail (TART Trail system) is a wonderful thing that Traverse City offers and am glad that you were able to take advantage of it as it passes right past the hotel! Thank you for such a nice review. I am so happy that Emily at our Front Desk was able to assist you!

On a tight budget, yet wanting to end the summer right...we happened upon AmericInn in Traverse City. What a great place to stay. The staff...super nice and friendly...and knoweledgeable of the area. Right across the street was the State Park...beautiful. And there was a Putt-Putt and go-cart establishment right next door! What a great time. Rooms where clean and comfortable. Breakfast was terrific.

It was my first stay at an AmericInn, and I plan to stay again. Friendly staff, clean, comfortable rooms, very good choices at breakfast, with an employee constantly monitoring and cleaning the breakfast area. Especially enjoyed having coffee, tea, hot chocolate available at all times. Good location ~ close to everything.

You won't find modern decor or anything fancy, but the hotel is super clean, and our suite was quite large for the price. The pool area was also clean (and uncrowded). The breakfast was fine, but like almost every other hotel that offers a free breakfast, the options are skewed toward sweet stuff (waffles, yogurt, donuts, fruit), and I can't stomach anything sweet in the morning. The sausage gravy and biscuits were good, but very high-calorie, I'm sure. Can't beat the location -- right across the street from the beaches (without the high price of the resorts across the street) and close to the public beach. Just a short drive to downtown Traverse City, and also close to both peninsulas. We stayed here for four nights in early September and used the money we saved (compared to the resorts) to spend on food, wineries and gifts. I'd definitely stay here again.

This is a typical chain hotel but is kept a bit cleaner and tidier than others I've stayed in.

The pool and sauna area was regularly serviced and extremely clean. Staff was friendly and very helpful

The room was spacious and quiet, even if it was right beside the laundry room. It was clearly a just-converted smoking room, but management had done an excellent job of refinishing it so there was no residual smell.

Laundry room was spotless, and machines were in perfect working order.

The hotel is right across the street from the lake, right next door to an amusement park and near a number of restaurants: I don't think you can go wrong!

We stayed here for 3 nights. The hotel is a bit dated but clean. The room had a bit of an odor but nothing that couldn't be handled. The complimentary breakfast isn't bad but not much selection when it comes to breads. I'm not a fan of white flour and the breads on hand didn't allow much choice (no whole grains at all). The staff was cool - not overly friendly but polite and helpful. This would be a great place for young families. At a cost of $106/night for 2 queen size beds, it was a good deal. It's also located beside a huge Pirate's Cove Adventure Golf that includes go-carts, water coaster, rope course, zip-line and, of course, miniature golf. Also well within walking distance of lake front and a few tourist shops and restaurants. About a 5-10 minute drive from downtown and some great shopping.

This hotel was price very well for the area. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Was a short walk to the beach and places to eat. Breakfast was good and area clean. The only thing I didn't like was being charged $15 a day for what I don't know (it does get reimbursed although I don't know that mine has been after a week, need to check). The only other thing to be aware of is that it is almost impossible to turn left out of the parking lot. It's like a nascar race out there!

Thank you for your review and I’m so happy that we were able to make your stay wonderful when in Traverse City! I am sorry that you didn’t understand the $15 “charge” that you mention. This in fact is not a charge, however when you used a debit card at the hotel, a pre-authorization is completed at check-in which holds room and tax plus $15 per day. This is done in case additional funds are needed for incidental expenses. Because a debit card does not have credit attached, you will see this on your statement. This can take up to ten business days to be released (hotel releases the money immediately upon check-out however individual banks have different time frames). As I explained in my previous e-mail to you, I have personally reviewed this account to ensure that this has occurred. I am sorry you feel this was done in error. I am however very happy that you felt it was a good value.
