Stone Center Hotel
Ranked #4 of 4 Interlochen B&B and Inns
Reviewed 18 September 2013

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.

Room Tip: If you go book a Lakeside view room, the view makes the space seem larger.

The room in which my husband and I stayed (218) was clean and comfortable. The bathroom was miniscule and reminded me of my college dormitory back in the 1970s but was fine for an overnight stay. The furniture, carpeting and fixtures in the room appeared to be new. Everything was spotless. There is no elevator so be prepared to carry luggage up a flight of stairs. The desk personnel were very pleasant. Would definitely stay again if attending an evening concert on campus.

This is a pretty basic place but it's clean and comfy. The location is, of course, ideal if you are dropping off a camper or seeing a concert. The desk staff is very helpful and friendly. The rooms themselves are nice-- small but air conditioned which can come in handy on a hot summer night. It is attached to a lodging area for the camp counselors as well as a cafeteria for the campers so don't expect quiet.

Room Tip: As for a room away from the stairway.

This used to be a high school dorm. It was all remodeled last year and is very nice and clean. The bathrooms are small and are very dormy but functional. The bed was very firm which we liked. Complimentary coffee pot and coffee in room, Limited cable, wi-fi, very new and cold a/c. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The main charm of this hotel is that it is in the Interlochen Center grounds right next to the Kresge Auditorium and on the shore of Duck Lake. A nice beach is a short walk. A nice deck over the lake. Bike rentals, ice cream. Don't expect a normal hotel. It is overpriced compared to some places but on the lower end for clean and quiet in Traverse City. This is for those who are coming for shows and concerts and to visit students and campers. Beautiful old fashioned lobby and beautiful grounds. We will stay again next year unless we camp at the nearby state park.

Room Tip: Rooms vary in size. Book early to have a choice. Rooms do have a view of lake but mostly trees. Non...

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).
