The hotel is right on campus. You have to park in an outer lot so make sure your bags have wheels. I believe you can ask for assistance and a golf cart will come get you. The rooms are what I would call European or New York in size and the bathrooms are pretty tight. The lakeside view rooms have a nice view, the "Sunrise" rooms look at a wall about 6 feet away and are priced lower.
Everything was very clean. My room had a twin and a double. The twin was a bit soft for anyone large and the Double was nice and firm.
If you decide to eat here you are in the cafeteria with the students and hours are limited, Breakfast at $9 was a bit pricy but better than my daughter described it. In the summer you can visit the coffee tent for Bagels and Pastries which is right outside the front door and priced for students.
Luxury, NO. A nice place to stay at a reasonable price compared to Traverse City in season - Big Yes.
