“Great time”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 July 2014

We stay in your hotel July 3-5, 2014. We had a wonderful time, our room was pretty like any other rooms that I have stayed in across the country, they were clean and standard. The breakfast was standard, served hot and the area was clean, enjoyable. The thing that made your hotel stand out and the reason I am writing this is you staff, I really can't say enough, the breakfast staff went over and above. The front office were friendly and very helpful, we had a problem with our TV we told the front desk "no hurry we will be out all day", by the time we walked back to the room maintenance was there and solved the problem. I have been in the service industry for more years then I care to admit, I know serving the public can be challenging to say the least, and I know this level of service does not come easy, hiring and training is the key. Your staff always had a smile on their face and a welcoming attitude. Congratulation job well done. Your hotel and staff made our stay feel like a 5 star vacation. Thank-You!

My husband and 1 year old just stayed at the Country Inns & Suites for 3 nights. Our room was a suite.

Overall it was a great experience! The room was very clean, the staff were very friendly and the breakfast was fantastic! The location of the hotel is pretty good, close to restaurants, the beach and a short drive to downtown.

The pool was great and very warm. I would stay here again and would defiantly recommend!

We stayed at the Country Inn & Suites in Traverse City, for 1 week starting July 4th, 2014. Its location is close to downtown. We were very impressed with our overall stay. The hotel staff was very polite and friendly throughout our stay, especially with it being a very busy week during the National Cherry Festival, and being full. We were greeted with fresh baked cookies at the front desk when we checked in. Our "2 queen beds room" was spacious, clean, and comfortable. We even had a 2nd chair to sit in, along with the large rolling desk chair. The room rate was affordable, even being at the height of the tourist season. Our rate was a lot less than our usual hotel's that we have stayed at for several years past. The large indoor pool w/ hot tub was enjoyable. The free hot breakfast was plentiful.The outdoor patio is great with lots of tables w/ umbrellas and chairs for relaxing in outside. Many guests enjoyed having
their breakfast there. The hotel lobby was very spacious also, with its extra sofas, fireplace, large TV, 2 computers, and lots of tables and chairs...and its coffee/tea/hot chocolate station.
We vacation in Traverse City, twice each summer. We went ahead and changed our next hotel stay over to this Country Inn & Suites...very impressed.

As a family of five, finding rooms can be a challenge. We stayed in a suite, giving us plenty of room to stretch out.

The positives: the room was dark and quiet (for the most part) at night, especially for those of us sleeping in the actual bedroom away from the hall noise. I do bring a fan for white noise just to help. We had two TVs, which is helpful at night since we have teens and a preschooler, a fridge which was great for keeping our cooler stuff cold overnight, and three sinks in the room to use (one kitchenette sink, one sink outside the bathroom, the other in); the free breakfast was pretty good, giving several choices each day; and we made good use of the warm pool and hot tub. The hotel is in a convenient location.

The imperfect: the hotel does allow pets, and one night we heard a dog barking non-stop for 30 minutes or more. It did finally quiet down, and we never heard any others during our five night stay. The bathroom was quite small with only one hook and one towel bar, and when the hotel filled up in the latter half of our stay, the shower would go hot and/or cold in spurts. Those imperfections didn't hurt the overall pleasantness of our stay however. We'd go back if ever in the area again.

Room Tip: We were given a room on the second floor at the end of the hall away from the main entrance. While...

Stayed for 2 nights while visiting in traverse city. Room was clean, with fridge and microwave. Staff was pleasant. Parking was a challenge- not enough spots. Breakfast was included but not really our type of healthier food- mostly carbs and high fat meats, powdered scrambled eggs, a make your own waffle station --all which most others seemed to enjoy - I am just picky. The coffee was good and there was hazelnut creamer to keep me happy. Par Overall an excellent value - exactly what I expected from other peoples reviews!

We were traveling with 5 adults and 2 children which makes it difficult to find a single room. Country Inn offered a room with 3 queen beds and a pullout couch for $188. We were very comfortable. We enjoyed the pool, hot tub, and delicious breakfast.

My sister and I (both in our 50's) stayed at the Country Inn and Suites in Traverse City from July 9-11. Our stay was during the National Cherry Festival so we weren't sure we could get an affordable room. We made our reservations on Memorial Day weekend and had no problem getting the room. We had a room with two queen beds, had a fridge and microwave. The hotel is very clean, staff provide great service, and the free breakfast is the best I have had at a hotel of this type. We were about a mile from downtown Traverse City on the main road, so it was easy getting in and out of town. We traveled to Old Mission Peninsula on a wine tour and we did our own tour of the Leelanau Peninsula. Make sure you go to Leland and check out Fishtown - it is a great place to see some history and enjoy some cute shopping! You can do boating excursions from there as well.

Room Tip: Hotel has 2 floors and has an elevator. We were able to park close to our entrance and walked right...
