Very nice, front desk and staff. Beautiful lake town. Great hot breakfast. Very helpful about site seeing location. Best fish dinner at Scallywags. Very clean. Nice drive along the lake. Small towns along the lake. Shops of different types of local crafts.

We’ve stayed at the Quality Inn Traverse City many times, but this was not as enjoyable. The price was much higher than usual due to summertime popularity. Our room was very small, next to the outside door that leads to the stairway to the 2nd...More
