I really liked this hotel. It's right on the water, although not all rooms have a water view. Check in was smooth. The room was a 2 bedroom suite. The decor in the room is a little outdated but not bad. My biggest complaint was that in the living room area the couches aren't very comfortable. But it did have a fireplace, so that was a bonus. I would definitely stay here again.

Good afternoon!

Thank you for your stay and your review. I'm happy that you had a smooth check-in - that perfect after a long day of travels.

I'm sorry that you felt the room seemed dated and the couch was uncomfortable. We are always updating and improving our rooms, and we have many things planned over the next few years.

I'm happy that you'll be returning in the future. Have a nice May and we'll see you again soon.

Best,

Jonathan P.

The buy one night get the second half off is a great deal! We had a Mackinac Island Suite and traveled with someone else who had an Elk Rapids studio. Both rooms were great and the Elk Rapids studio was huge for a standard two queen room! Best part was that we made the reservations separately and asked to be close. When we got to our rooms they ended up being adjoining rooms! This is great for people traveling with little kids. Rooms were very clean. Beds were very comfortable and included full size king pillows (very rare for non- 5 star hotels)! Indoor pool area was very hell heated at the pool was very warm (probably >85F) so it felt like bath water. About the only negative I could come up with is some of the furnishings seem a little outdated (TVs in bathrooms) and that there are only shudders on the windows facing the bay. Curtains would be better as it was hard to get the room dark enough in the afternoon for our toddler's nap.

Room Tip: Elk Rapid studios are huge for a standard two queen room and one of the hotel's cheapest layouts...

Hello!

Thank you so much for your review, and I'm glad we surprised you with the adjoining rooms to make your stay better.

I apologize that you felt the bathroom TV's were a bit dated. You should be happy that we started and are close to completion of our first eleven rooms with bathrooms that are being completely remodeled, including vanity mirrors that have a TV built into them (don't see the TV when it's off - only when it's on). We're planning to renovate all of our bathrooms within three years. We have 25 rooms that we'll have completed by the end of the year.

Thank you again and have a wonderful May!

Best,

We decided to take a little trip to Traverse City before all the yard work started. The area was offering specials before tourist season swings into full gear.
The Cherry Tree Inn and Suites offered 1 night/ 2nd 1/2 price for their suites with a view of the East Bay.
Our room was lovely, fresh, and roomy. We extended our stay to 4 days. Great location..Friendly staff...Nice amenities!!
Breakfast was included, and a nice variety was offered, but more options in the hot dishes would be better.
Each suite has its own little balcony to enjoy sitting outside. We truly enjoyed our stay there.

Good evening!

Thank you so much for coming to enjoy the Traverse City area and the Cherry Tree before you started all your yard work. At least it's nice to know we're at that time of year where we can do yard work again!

I'm really happy that you enjoyed your stay and all of our amenities. Thank you for your suggestion on more hot items. We do rotate them each day between sausage and egg patties, sausage patties and rosemary hash browns, and biscuits and sausage gravy. We'll lack at ways we can offer more.

Thank you again for your stay and have a wonderful spring. Good luck with your yard work!

We booked this room from Thursday to Sunday but got in very early Thursday morning. The hotel was kind enough to let us into our room early (12 pm) so that we could catch up on some much needed rest. Our room 106 was very large and opened right out into the grass. It was cold and snowy so we didn't go down to the beach. Jacuzzi and workout room were nice. Overall a great stay.

Good morning!

Thank you for your stay and for taking the time to write a review of our hotel. I'm glad that we were able to help you get some much needed rest, and I'm glad you enjoyed one of our Elk Rapids Studios on the first floor - they are even better when you can walk out to the beach from them in the warmer months!

Have a wonderful rest of your April and thank you again!

We had wanted to stay at Cherry Tree Inn last spring but they had no openings. However when we decided to go up north for our honeymoon this rear we remembered Cherry Tree and booked a suite. It was an perfect location. My husband had added some extras like wine and flowers to be in our room when we arrived and both were excellent. I have already recommended Cherry Tree to others in the week we've been home. We will be back!

Loved our stay! The 2bdrm apt. Was excellent. The beds were so comfortable and large. Each room had its own flat screen tv. The living room was huge with another couch that had a trundle bed. One recliner chair and a table with 4 wicker chairs. The,kitchen was great. Full refrigerator, cooking area,sink, and best of all nice coffe maker with free starbucks coffee. . The hotel had coffee available all hours with the leelanu brand it was extremly good and they had cherry coffee excellent!!! The pool and hot tube were very clean at all times we stayed for 6 days and had seen a group of kids crowd the place and never once was the pool dirty or overly chlorinated... the living room also come with a PS2. You can watch movies in that or play games. They have plenty of rentals at the desk or you can walk across the street and rent from red box or family rentals. The shower and bathing products smelly wonderful and did not dry out our skin or hair. House keeping is really nice. I have to say its weird not seeing other ethnicity cleaning rooms. Being a native from California its just odd seeing only white.. kind of refreshing. The staff was great no matter what the hour was or what staff members. . The shuttle was excellent, very friendly and they have the 411 on everything traverse City. Ive stayed in a few place in traverse city and so far all around this place was worth the money !!! The breakfast is free. They have waffle makers with cherry topping, dry cereal, oat meal, fresh fruit, yogurt, Danish, sausages and some kind of eggs or biscuits and gravy, yummy, they had apple,cranberry, orange, and lemonade juice every day,and of,course the awesome coffee. We really liked this place. Family of 4. With one teenager whombwas pkeased the entire time lol. Location to down town is perfect especially with free shuttles to casnios or dinning. We drove to Boyne to go skiing 2 days much better than spending outrageous boyne lodging prices. It was only 54 miles and a beautiful drive. We ate at the blu tractor bbq, excellent food very family friendly. And you must stop at the lie shop too .. in traverse city . Will always come back to this faboulse place. Had a child with very bad allergies and asthma. Not once did she get sick. And we played a long time in the pools and on the ground all over in the rooms.. they do a great job keeping this place as clean as they can. I was very impressed keep up the good work Cherry Tree staff!!

As soon as we walked through the lobby doors, the front desk staff greeted us with a welcoming smile. Check-in was fast and efficient. Both the interior and exterior of the hotel appear to be well maintained. Our top floor, balcony room (#514) has a nice view of the Bay, two queen size beds, a flat-screen TV, and a round table and four chairs (including a wooden rocking chair). The room is well lit and the number of available electrical outlets (for charging electronic devices) is good. I like that comforters are not used on the beds - blanket is sandwiched between two flat sheets and they used a proper-sized fitted bottom sheet. Another nice extra are the wedge-shaped pillows for watching TV or using a tablet/laptop while sitting comfortably in bed. A small fridge, microwave, and single cup coffee maker are also in the room. There is an exhaust fan, phone, and a small TV in the bathroom. The shower’s water temperature is consistent and the water pressure is good. There is a hot/cold breakfast buffet available in the morning consisting of eggs, sausage, hot/cold cereal, waffles, breads, hot/cold beverages, etc. We have stayed here before and will return again.

Room Tip: First floor lake side rooms have access to the beach directly from your room.
