Very Good8.0
Fair Priced, accommadations.
Slept well the beds were comfortable and the room was clean. One of the only hotels that would allow me to book only 1 night in Traverse City. Breakfast was kept well stocked. Many issues with door keys not working and going back to front desk to get it redone but all in all a fair price for the night across from the water.

What you'd expect for the price. Common
Not bad for an inexpensive Place. Rooms are what you'd expect for the price. Breakfast was a mess though. Everything was gone by the time we got down at 7 and the kid wasn't replenishing. No coffee ready. Ran out of bowls. No coffee cups even if there was coffee.

Room very small. Shower head needs replaced. The pillows are useless. Bring your own!

Not good!
I tried to check in at 5:00 pm I was told my room wasn’t ready . Should be ready in 1/2 hour. I came back an hour later . Room still not ready. After waiting in the lobby ( with @ 15 other guest waiting for a room) I finally got a room at 11:15 pm. I was told that my room would be comped for the night. But because I paid through . I would need to call them to get the refund. The next morning there was very little breakfast available. They even ran out of coffe cups. I called the next day. Still haven’t seen a refund. Worst hotel stay of my life!
