Stone Center Hotel
Ranked #4 of 4 Interlochen B&B and Inns
Reviewed 16 August 2012

The rooms are tiny and the AC is marginal at best. Uncomfortable beds. Postage-stamp bathroom! We had made reservations for several visits because our son was at the arts camp. Never again! Sound travels into the rooms way too much from the hallway and other rooms. Few of the staff act with professionalism. For example, the first time we arrived, the front desk manager was swearing up a storm about some personal issue she had. They seem to know they have a captive market for people who need to be there for their kids. No elevator to the second floor, and due to an injury it was difficult for me to get my suitcase upstairs. The ONLY think the Stone has going for it is the location, just steps from Kresge and other performance spaces. The last time we stayed here, we had to pay an upgrade fee to get the actual type of room we had ordered (2 vs 1 bed).

This hotel is on the campus of Interlochen Center for the Arts and is very convenient for visiting and attending functions there. The rooms are simple but comfortable, clean and recently renovated with the exception of the bathrooms. Some rooms are a bit nicer than others – try to get the lake view rooms as a first choice. Expect rooms that are a bit smaller than typical hotel rooms. The bathrooms are small with no counter space and a small shower. Every room I have stayed in has a TV and functional heating and air conditioning. Parking is not directly adjacent to the hotel so expect to walk a short ways and enjoy the beautiful campus. Cost is reasonable. If you want something more elaborate expect to drive 30 minutes into Traverse City.

Room Tip: Try to get a lake view room

Situated inside Interlochen Arts Academy. The rooms are in an old dorm building. The A/C didn't work, the bathroom was small, beds were VERY uncomfortable. No TV or radio. Incredibly noisy. Meals were served at the same time as students ate theirs at set times, in the school cafeteria and food was horrible.
Saw a cockroach in the bathroom, told the front desk about it, 3 days past a never got the bathroom cleaned.
Probably the worst experience of my life. Compared to this, youth hostels are the Ritz!
Look for any other hotel in town or better yet, drive a little further to Traverse City (15 min. away).
