Traverse Bay Inn, Traverse City
The only negative was that a local tax was included with the price.

Very pleasant stay
What a nice surprise for the $. I wish I had paid attention to the details of the room would have brought food to fix for dinner and breakfast. Very comfortable room.

Room nice; Service not so much.
The accommodations were sparse, but comfortable and clean. Based solely on that I would recommend this property. However, upon arrival at 5:30pm the Reception area was closed and no one answered the door. After standing there in 9 degree weather and wondering if I should go to another property, I noticed some envelopes in the mailbox. Looking closer, I found 1 with my name and room keys inside. Opening the room door I saw that I had been upgraded from a studio to a suite - nice and still in a positive frame of mind. I left about an hour later to go out, but when I returned my key did not work. It is now 5 degrees and I am more than a little cold, Still no one at Reception, so I called the motel phone number. The person who answered told me that she was driving and would have to call me back in 20 minutes, so I sat in my car and waited. I received a call back and was told to look for a pin that had popped out to block the key. I pushed it back in and the key worked. Still okay, but then I was told not to let the pin pop out again or I would be blocked (but not WHY the pin had popped out in the 1st place). The caller then warned me that if it happened again, she was not coming back because she lived an hour and a half away. That seemed more than a little inhospitable, especially considering the severe weather, and I wonder why she said it. A warning about limited Receptions hours would have been nice, but not accepting responsibility to a guest was totally out of place.
