It is an amazing experience here up in Traverse city. The hotel is in the perfect location. It is priced well and the rooms are great. It is simple but exactly what is desired. They have a great staff that is friendly and not pushy. The hot tub in the room is also wonderful.

We visit Traverse City 5 or more times a yr, and this is the only place to stay. The staff is wonderful...especially Dustin! Won't stay anywhere else! The rooms are very clean and they go out of their way to help you! This place is Traverse City's best kept secret!!

We visited this resort on Valentines Day weekend. Check in was very quick and efficient. The staff was kind and pleasant. We had requested a room on the third floor to avoid hearing the noises from people walking above us. The room itself was very clean. There was also a lot of literature from the surrounding area included on the tables which I found helpful. There is a refrigerator, microwave, coffee cups and wine glasses in the room as well. The balcony was nice except it was 3 degrees so we didn't use it. It would be lovely in the summer. The beds were comfortable and the jacuzzi tub was delightful in the cold weather. My only complaint about the jacuzzi is that our neighbors felt the need to use theirs from 10:00 -11:30 at night. We could hear the jets going off and them getting out to turn them back on. I could also hear the neighbor snoring. The walls are pretty thin. I don't see this being a problem in the summer as there seem to be window air conditioners which would drown out the sound but in the winter I could hear a lot of the noises next door. The doors to the units also close especially loud but that is more from inconsiderate travelers just letting the doors slam behind them. The rooms also do not get very dark. There are just a set of blinds that close over the sliding glass door and there is also a window at the front of the room which allows light to enter. If you require a very dark room then I would recommend bringing a sleep mask. The location of this hotel is great. It is right on a main strip so there are plenty of choices of restaurants and there is a Walgreens just down the block. We went up the Old Mission Peninsula for wine tasting and it was a superb location for our activities. Overall I would stay here again. Probably in the summer however so I could take advantage of the beach front location.

Room Tip: Top floor to avoid noise.

We had a terrible stay! It wasn't anything like it advertised, it's outdated and run down, they advertised a hot continental breakfast witch ended up being a little box of cereal in a plastic bowl. Not to mention the $150 they randomly for no reason charged to our card! I will never return to this place or recommend it to ANYBODY!

This was my first time in a while being in Traverse City, and we got recommendations for Pointes North from a friend. We went up in the winter which was very low key, and the hotel was not very busy. There are Jacuzzi in every room which is very nice in the winter. The staff was very nice, and gave us lots of ideas on what to do. Nice distance away from down town, but still has a lot to offer. We went up for the breweries and found that the location was perfect because there is one in Acme just past the hotel to the east. Great place with great staff, and very decent rates in the winter.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms not on the first floor so you get a better view of the bay. Ask to stay on the west...

I almost hate to give this review...as I want to keep it a secret for myself...but it definitely deserves a good review. The rooms are clean and Beautiful and spacious! The private balconies have a beautiful peaceful view of the Bay. Yes, it is an older Place but it is very well kept. The front desk workers are always very nice and helpful with directions and suggestions. This is my favorite place to stay in Traverse!!

Room Tip: I have only stayed on the top floor. Beautiful view of the bay from the top floor ;)

Let me start with the negatives first, then we'll discuss all the positives about this place.

Although there weren't many things I could pick on, there were just a couple things this place lacked compared to the surrounding resorts. There's no indoor pool, or gym, or arcade or any of the usual "indoor comodities" most places around here offer, and there isn't someone at the front dest 24 hours a day, they leave at 9pm... but other than that there's really nothing to complain about.

Now for the positives, it's in a great location. Right on the Bay and about 5 minutes from downtown Traverse City. My husband and I came during the off season and paid $89 / night for a huge room with a Jucuzzi inside, and nearly all of the rooms have private balconies, which is great. The staff is very friendly, and the room was very clean. The hotel itself is a little outdated, they still have actual room keys opposed to key cards, but nothing to complain about. All in all it was a good stay for a good price, I would recommend it.
