Fabulous 8.6 From 100 reviews

Pinestead Reef Resort, Traverse City
The front desk clerk Raymond was VERY rude. And when I was in the lobby with my 10 year old and her 2 friends waiting for another friend to show. He was watching a show pretty loudly where the show was saying mother f-er, b@tch numerous times. Then about 5-10 minutes later my daughter said something funny so we all laughed at her, he then very angrily leaned over the counter telling us we were in HIS space, then motioned the entite lobby saying THIS is MY space YOU are in MY space!! I was appalled. I filed a complaint and left my name and number but never heard anything from management.

The facility as a whole might be showing it’s age, but the rooms were in great shape. The FULL kitchen seemed recently remodeled. The bath was small but functional. A sizable veranda allows for wide open views of the bay.
