              My husband and I stayed at the Resort this past weekend and had a wonderful time. We plan on bringing our kids back this summer to enjoy the beach.

            • Family with children
              10.0

              From the time we walk in to the time we left. We felt special and wanted and appreciated by the people working there. It was the most fun and relaxed time I have had in a long time. I highly recommend this Resort/Hotel to all. The front dest was especially nice to myself and my family. I will always come back there once a month as my place to hang out when I am in Traverse city area. Its worth the trip. Thanks Staff Dan Reason 810-422-8797

              Nothing Everyroom was clean, including the pool which was a big bennit for our family. Keep up the great work for the people working there.

              The spa tub was very nice because I am over 6 feet tall and can never fit in a tub comfortably.

              10.0

              The staff was very helpful and friendly, the room was very clean and comfortable, and the beach was beautiful!

              Nothing. We only stayed one night and it was the off season. but everything was great. I will definently recommened this hotel!

            • Older travelers
              9.6

              Clean, comfortable and quiet stay. Bed was comfy.

              Some front desk staff were luke warm at best re: "warm and welcoming" behaviors. Some should at least pretend to enjoy customers. Girl in the food area was the model for others, as she smiled, had great eye contact and appropriate engagement.

            • Group of friends
              10.0

              Its just so nice and cozy and great location. Your staff very accomodating and helpful with any and all questions. Nice breakfast. Quiet rooms. Some hotels you can hear easily through the rooms but not with this one.

            • Older travelers
              7.4

              location on the Bay. Close to Traverse City, Price. Pool and hot tub were nice.

              Strange arrangement for pool towels. They were kept at the front desk. No glass wear to be found. Makes it difficult to enjoy a nice single malt in the evening. Felt like they were being a little cheap regardless of the reasons. I just felt like the hotel gave in to visitors that may be more on the entry hotel level when they could easily go slightly more upscale by adding such things as real glasswear instead of plastic cups.

            • Group of friends
              6.6

              Good location, friendly staff, everything you would really need for a visit. Very clean.

              We had a room that had a hot tub. Would have preferred a larger bathroom and eliminate the hot tub. TV also did not work well and there was no guide.

            • Older travelers
              8.2

              The staff was great and our room was right on the beach looking out over the bay.

              They could upgrade a little, such as new comforters and have the carpet cleaned in the room. Otherwise I loved it.

            • Older travelers
              7.4

              Disappointed in the way the resort landscaping lacked routine maintenance. Weeds, unkempt bushes, lack of watering plants. With a bit of attention, could be a diamond.

            • Older travelers
              9.2

              I booked our room the night before we headed up to Traverse City for a last minute vacation. We have traveled to Traverse City several times but never stayed at your hotel and were very pleasantly surprised with how nice our rooms were and the fact that we were facing onto the lake. We also liked our wonderful, complimentary breakfasts both days we stayed there. It was just, overall, a very nice place to stay. We both said we would definitely book our vacation with you in the future.

              Honestly can't think of any negatives.

            • Couple
              8.2

              Friendly staff. Great location - beach.

              No negatives - had a very nice stay.

            • Older travelers
              9.2

              Clean beach,real continental breakfast,clean accommodations.

              24hour access to coffee in lobby would be a plus

            • Older travelers
              8.8

              I liked being right on the beach and it was easy to get to a lot of other places. We were there for business(husband) and pleasure. It was nice that the continental breakfast was included in the price.

              The breakfast area was too small for the amount of people that were staying at the motel. The first morning we had to leave early for a bus tour and there was no problem eating. The morning we were checking out we went down right before leaving a little after 9 and there was no room so we didn't eat.

            • Older travelers
              7.8

              The employees were all enthusiastic, smiling and went out of their way to make our stay pleasant.

              The facilities, although clean and well kept, are in need of updating. The furnishings are quite dated and there are some maintenance issues that need correcting, such as wallpaper beginning to pull away, tiles that are dulling, etc.
