My friends and I stayed here in September 2014 for a wine-tasting weekend. I really enjoyed this hotel during that stay, so when I was making plans to attend the 2015 Traverse City Film Festival last Fall, I decided to advance-book at this 'sure thing' based on my recent experience. I knew that the TCFF week is a sold-out week...

We have been to traverse city almost every year for 10 years. When I booked this years vacation I requested a first floor walk out room. I also requested to not have the end room that is next to where the people wash their feet when they leave the beach. The woman said they cannot reserve room numbers but she...

Great place for a family. Rooms were decent size, nice décor, and clean. The breakfast was decent with fresh fruit and other items. It has a great beach and pool. Have stayed here before and would stay again.

excellent location. great stay, so-so bfast. The only thing I really didn't care for was, they had a water trampoline that was in the water right off the beach for rent, no one was renting it, they yelled at anyone who got on it. The problem was it had an anchor with about 30 ft. of rope. twice my kids...

The rooms were quite impressive. The views were absolutely incredible. The breakfast was typical hotel fair, nothing special. We didn't get to eat it on the deck overlooking the beach though. It was a bit too cold to be outside on the beach but it was still stunningly gorgeous! Hotel staff was average. They put us in a room a...

Staff was great. Beach area was clean but small-- very limited seating on the beach, so you should bring your own beach chairs or be content to lay on a towel in the sand. Nice location not too far from the downtown area. Overall, good experience.

The staff was very kind, but the rooms are not ready for check in until 4 and even when you check in the rooms are not cleaned well. We had a jacuzzi in our room that I couldn't even bring myself to use. There was mold and mildew in the shower. It wasnt awful but rather disappointing for the money....

great central location on the beach, 5 minute drive to old downtown. Friendly, helpful staff. Wifi free and fast,satellite TV programming with DVDs player,ironing board and iron,coffee maker,microwave. Improvements I would suggest: remove room carpets as they hold humidity and smell musty,upgrade mattresses and relocate waffle maker in breakfast room to improve flow or have staff make for guests

A pricey stay, and you mostly pay for beach access. There's a continental breakfast (meager) with a nice view. The staff was not professional - information was hard to come by. The first full day of our stay, our room didn't get cleaned, and when it finally did it wasn't cleaned well (let's leave it at that). The location was...

This place was great!!!!! Our family stayed for four days! They have a big complimentary hot breakfast every morning , the beach is the backyard, and it's located right across the street from an adventure park, stores, and restaurants ! The indoor pool was great when it rained. It was also very clean and the staff was so great!
