This hotel is really nice, staff very friendly, stayed on first floor beach view. You open the door and water is right there! Breakfast was good! Room was remodeled last year! Bed and pillow was very comfortable.

Stayed here during the HOSA State Leadership Convention. Our very clean room, had an awesome view of Traverse Bay. Comfortable beds. Deluxe continental breakfast. The front desk staff nice and helpful. I will definitely stay here again. Rooms with walkout beach access. Indoor pool. Shuttle service available, but not used during our stay.

Good evening Ms. Bonnie, Unfortunately, when you book through a third party (as you did with your stay in question) - your room requests are harder to fulfill as they are often not passed on from the third party medium to our hotel staff.

Our sincerest apologies that you were unhappy with your stay. Unfortunately when our guests elect to book through a third party, as you had done with Groupon, you are locked into that room type unless you contact the third party to modify your reservation. There is only a $10-$20 price difference in Courtview versus Beachview and both were available to...
