We enjoyed our spacious room, bay view, and comfortable bed. A really well appointed hotel with excellent services.

Continental breakfast delivered to your door at your choice of specified time was nice, hot tub opened at 8am to soak sore muscles was nice. Great view of the Bay.

The location is very nice on the water! My room was clean but no extra cups for tea no tea ! No water bottles The staff when I reported the broken umbrellas 3 of them he informed me the staff went home early. I told him it was like that yesterday. He corrected me by saying you are not to feed the birds. What does that have to do with your job!! I will never return or recommend

Clean, friendly, great location on the bay! Bathrooms nicely remodeled!

Property is pleasant and location is great. A little disappointed that our room was way at the very end of the hall and that meant that our view included the building next door, a shed and the poles and decking for the dock that is being stored on the beach in front of those end rooms. Fortunately (or unfortunately) it was cold and windy so we didn't use the balcony or walk the beach.

Everything about this hotel was a great experience! From the front desk, maid service and even the maintenance! Everyone was wonderful, kind and I believe they all loved their jobs! Will always stay here in the future when traveling to TC!!

It was By the lake which was good. But the staff didn’t let us check in only an hour early as it was snowing and we were traveling with children.

Convenient to Downtown area. The room was clean with great views of the lake.

Our room was large with two king beds and a pull out couch. It had two sliding doors that walked out to the patio. Since we were on the main floor, this walked right out onto the beach. This would be a perfect place to visit in the summer with family and kids.

Excellent view. Up to date style. Courteous service

Great stay! Would definitely stay again in the Summer months.

Perfect location for everything to do in Traverse City. Room right on the water with a great balcony. Breakfast like all places is very slim, we have stayed in others that still serve a hot breakfast and have adapted to the COVID issue.

I liked the location being slightly out of the downtown area. The beach area was very nice. I wish there were more local family restaurants close by though

Hotel was very nice, clean, and in a nice location across the street from a fun Putt Putt course. Lots of restaurants within walking distance and a 10 minute drive from downtown . Has a really charming little beach view as well.

Beautiful property right on the Bay! Super clean rooms and friendly staff!!

Everyone was super nice, helpful and personable. Love the view ans the hotel setting. I'd definitely stay again!

Awesome location and amenities. Really courteous staff.

We apologize we always assign those end rooms last due to the fact of all the docking is stacked there for the winters months. Unfortunately when we sell out of those room types some one ends up in one of them. Hope that will not stop you from coming back to see us in the future!
