This is a no frills hotel. It is a great location close to downtown and located near lots of shopping. It is pet friendly and very clean. The staff is very nice. The pool and hot tub areas are very clean as well. I will definitely stay here again.

Our room was clean, and the inclusion of a microwave and mini-fridge were nice. No carpeting on the floors, which makes for very little sound dampening (could easily hear when neighbors flushed the toilet or showered). The free Wifi was decent for casual YouTube or Netflix viewing. Didn't test anything strenuous on it. No included breakfast, which wasn't a big...

The hotel was comfortable. Breakfast would have been nice but for the price we paid not a deal breaker. We did not spend s lot of time at the hotel. Traverse City great town with wonderful restaurants, bars, and wineries.

Our room in Motel 6 was really spacious but also quite worn out and really simple. There were no wall-to-wall carpet which was really nice. Service was okay and breakfast decent. It's located in the area were all the other motels are.

Dog friendly. Our baby dog doesn't go anywhere without us. Location is good. The heat when it turns on makes loud noises. Scared me the first time it turned on. Only coffee for breakfast which I don't drink. The pool is small however has a lift for handicapped people. I forgot there is A hot tub too. Don't even try...

a nice stay, located near the beach front on a street with motels, restaurants & shops. Check in was simple, they had my reservation & a room already allocated. Staff were friendly & helpful. My room was near the foyer & vending machines but I wasn’t disturbed by any noise from them. The room was spacious, clean & well laid...

After reading some of the reviews, I was nervous about booking at this location. Check in was a breeze and the guest service agent was very friendly. It was our first time to Traverse City and they were plenty of brochures in the lobby and even a few coupons in the room key booklet to guide us to some great...

We needed an inexpensive place just to sleep while attending a concert in the area, so this Motel 6 fit the bill. Not fancy, but there is a mini fridge and microwave in the room ( we didn't use them). Bed was very comfortable and room was clean (although the window tracks and air conditioner vents could use some attention.)....

Booked here during film festival. Not sure what we'd find. But all was super clean, comfortable, newly remodeled. It's Motel 6, so don't expect extra frills. You'll get the soap and shampoo, but not the conditioner or little coffee maker. There's a great coffee place just up the road. There is a frig with the room,however. Would recommend to others.
