Grand Traverse Motel, Traverse City
Needs More Attention to Detail
There were not many options available for a last minute Saturday night in TC, so I picked this place which was the least expensive, but still a lot for the quality. The front desk lady was very nice and it was much needed after checking in at 10 pm and being exhausted. The room was a normal motel size, and the wifi worked just fine. There were spider webs on the side of the furniture and I accidentally swiped through one when picking up something I dropped. The next morning I went to use the coffeemaker before my shower, and there was an old, used filter inside of it. It was dried up and who knows how long it had been there. The bathroom had grime around the outside and edges of the shower. It sufficed for a last second room that I was only in 12 hours, but the cost hurts for the cleanliness of the room.

Good and clean.
Nice place, staff is pleasant and the bed was fairly comfortable. The rooms are in need of an update, but everything was clean. Totally fine as long as you don't plan on spending much time in the rooms.
