A friend had booked this hotel for our Traverse City girls weekend; we had 2 double bed rooms. The hotel decor was very nice but the fact that the casino allowed smoking made the entire hotel smell like a ashtray. Being a nonsmoker myself and allergic to smoke made this a horrible experience which left me with a sore throat and a friend with bloodshot itchy eyes. The pillows were not to my comfort level. A few things I also noticed in the hotel room: the grout on the bathroom floors/shower were stained and moldy, the carpet along the edges of the room haven't seen a vacumn cleaner in weeks/months/maybe in a year. The staff in the casino were low class. We joked that the prereq for employment must be to not have good overall hygiene, have greasy hair, and be fugly. I would never stay at this hotel again because of the smell of smoke. Only good thing was that I came out of the casino fifty dollars ahead.
