    Unfortunately this is not an accurate representation of how this situation played out, and they have decided to leave a hurtful review. Always communicate with the office of a motel. Don't be obnoxious and belligerent. Motels don't want bad reviews, and will do their best...More

    This is an older motel that has been updated (years ago) and is now outdated! It barely has the basics, so don't look for a hair dryer or iron. My wife swears the towel was used. The toilet took 30 minutes (literally) to refill!! Old...More

    Traverse City motel prices are not tourist-friendly. But for $100 or more per night, we expect decent lodging. This motel has been upgraded a bit from the 1950s, but not much. We reserved 2 rooms (2 couples traveling together). Our rooms were basically clean, but...More

    Great price for this no frills motel. Exactly what we expected, so it was perfect. Walking distance into downtown (~1mile). Money saved was put to good use elsewhere, which made the trip better. Would stay here again.
