“beautiful!”
Reviewed 27 March 2007

The area is so heavenly!
I love the decor, with the authentic American Indian items. The lobby alone is worth the trip there. The staff is excellent, and efficient. Friendly, able to give maps, ideas on what to do there and they even have fresh fruit in the lobby to snack on while waiting for the casino bus.
This is truly a place to stay for a bit. You should see the rooms, spacious and just plain beautiful, the decor suits the area. (Woodlands)
I have talked my uncle and his family into making a family trip up there this summer (from houston)

This is our favorite place to stay in Petoskey. We visit up north 3 times a year, and this is our first pick for hotels. The employees there are excellent and very friendly. We have been going there for years and have always enjoyed our stay. Very clean rooms and great view of the bay. The shuttle will take you to the casino for tons of fun and live music. It is well worth the 4 1/2 hour drive! We can't wait to stay at their new hotel this summer.

My husband and I really like the Petoskey area and enjoy staying at Victories Hotel while we are there. The rooms are clean and the staff is very professional and efficient. We have a 4 hour drive to get to Petoskey and would not come back if we didn't enjoy our visit.

  • Liked — Close to the casino and downtown area
  • Disliked — long drive getting there
  • Tips/Secrets — Enjoy the scenic bike and walk trail

Stayed at Victories January 7th. Was very impressed with the beautiful lobby! Check in was very fast and we received $5 for gaming, $5 off food at the restaurant/deli located at the hotel or it could be used at the casino restaurant/buffet.

The rooms are nice and we had a great view of Little Traverse Bay, although the rooms facing the parking lot are the ones with the balconies! The decor is indian inspired and more upscale than the usual hotel room. It's definatly not the Holiday Inn it used to be!

They have a free shuttle to take you back and forth to the casino (no more than 1/2 mile) - never had to wait more than 2 minutes for it. The shuttle even took us into town to hit the bars that are located downtown Petoskey. Then all we had to do was call for them to come get us!

Decided to have breakfast at the casino restaurant/buffet. Food was OK, especially liked the omlets made to order.

Staff at the hotel was very friendly and very accomodating, the shuttle drivers were awesome, and the restaurant staff was also friendly.

Reviewed 14 November 2004

We stayed here Nov 7 which is their off season. The hotel has an upscale lobby with an intimate lounge and fireplace with occasional entertainment. The staff is professional and courteous. They provide a shuttle to the casino if needed. The rooms are larger than your standard Super 8, Best Western types. There is in-room coffee but no complimentary breakfast of any sort. They do have a restaurant on premise. Elevators are not centrally located to rooms but to the extreme end of the halls which makes a long walk to your room if you're at the opposite end and is compounded by the fact that the only entrance to the hotel is through the lobby door. I liked the fact that the rooms are thermostatically controlled, unlike most where the heat is either on or off.

The only problem we experienced was the lack of sound insulation. I could hear our neighboring guest when I was in the bathroom! The halls were somewhat noisy in the evening too. Whether they were casino partyers or overnight guests from the wedding reception that was going on I don't know. We just turned the TV up. I paid cash for the bill but was charged on my credit card also, which I called to report the error. The staff was courteous about it but I had to call them back two more times because they didn't follow up to confirm the fix.
