Would have been nice to have a microwave in the room itself , however they did have one in the lobby for guests to use. Room was very clean, bed was comfortable.

The outside of the hotel is unimpressive however the lobby and rooms were great. The prices were the most reasonable in the area. The staff person checking us in was very helpful. The rooms were large enough and very clean. The beds were comfortable, though...More

Out of the four nights I stayed, I only had hot water for a shower on one morning. On my last night, I was finally changed to a different room. To compensate me, they gave me a drink coupon! Unbelievable!

Thank you for the review. We sincerely apologize about the inconvenience you experienced. As for the drink voucher, I'm not sure what you received but we don't have anything of that sort here.

Reviewed 24 January 2018

I would describe my recent stay at Howard Johnson of Traverse City as average. The breakfast was lacking with no hot food items. The cleanliness is average and the rooms could use some updates.
