We are a family of four and this was our first visit to Traverse City. Before booking our stay I researched traveler opinions and the AmericInn got the best reviews for this price range. I can see why - the hotel is well maintained and clean, the pool and hot tub are nice (although beware of high levels of chlorine!) and beds and rooms are comfortable. For the most part the room was quiet.... any outside noise could be drowned out by running the fan or air conditioner. The breakfast included bagels, toast, biscuits/ gravy, hard boiled eggs, yogurt, cold cereal, instant oatmeal, waffles (make your own), and juice from 6 - 10 am. Coffee and tea available all day.
Located right next to Pirates Cove - just walk across the parking lot and you're there! Mini golf, go-carts, water coaster, bumper boats, etc. My kids really liked this place. Oh and Dairy Queen is right there too.
Also located along the TART - Traverse Area Recreation & Transportation Trails. We rented a four-person bike and enjoyed this beautiful area.
Traverse City is an amazing area and this is a very affordable option during peak summer travel season!
Clean rooms, comfortable beds.
High traffic area. At least in early July, it is a challenge making a left turn onto Rt. 31 into Traverse City. This could also be an issue when crossing the intersections of the TART trail on foot or on a bicycle.
No direct beach access from hotel - the hotels across the street have the beach access, therefore you need to find a public beach.
Room with two queen beds can feel a little small after 3 nights; our other option was King room with sleeper sofa.
Hopefully this will help other travelers considering this hotel. Happy Traveling!
