  • Disliked: Staff & service

If you're looking for a private beach, look elsewhere. Their beach is miserably tiny. Our room had exit directly to the beach, which is nice, except that there were like 8 people right outside our room and no-where for us to go. That also meant we had to keep the drapes drawn. Forget social distancing - not enough space! Also, sand was not cleaned and was just plain dirty with straws, chips, etc. The breakfast is just a selection of super processed food, it's like they decided to server vending machine food for breakfast. Now positive: very nice indoor pool, which was not busy, so made our stay there quite enjoyable. We won't be going back

    This was our first time visiting Traverse City and we had an amazing time! Our room was excellent! We only had a partial view which was great! We were able to see the sunset from our balcony. However, watching the sunset from the beach was priceless the breath taking views were awesome. Our overall feel of the location of the hotel and room felt private. It was like a home away from. The staff was nice,friendly, and very helpful with recommended things today in the area. This is a prefect spot for some serious rest & relaxation. SMH..the sound of the beach waves at night rocked us to sleep!! We will definitely visit again and highly recommend this hotel.
