“Fun by the Bay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 August 2014

Very Friendly and helpful staff, checked up to see if we needed anything when we arrived in our room. Rooms very clean, spacious , comfortable beds and fresh cookies when you arrive. Cost reasonable for the great room. Close to attractions, beach, downtown and the pennisula drives. The pool and hot tub were open later than most hotels. I would recommend to anyone visiting Traverse City or the area to stay here. I was highly satisfied and will stay again when I visit.

Room Tip: I prefer a room on the 2nd floor , had court yard view, was very quiet. You can ask if you would l...

This is our third stay at the Country Inns and visited other hotels in the past but the Country Inn at Traverse City is the best. We loved the accommodations, great service and friendly employees at all levels and at a very reasonable cost. Great family experience. I would highly recommend Country Inns to anyone visiting Traverse City, MI.

Room Tip: upstairs or downstairs it did not matter, still a good quiet room.

We enjoyed our stay because the rooms were nice, the staff was friendly, the pool and whirlpool were large and the breakfast was tasty. Traverse City was beautiful with trails and magnificent views. We enjoyed fishing, kayaking, shopping and the wineries. There are excellent restaurants and friendly people everywhere. There was a lot of traffic and the locals like to drive fast. Sleeping Bear Dunes was breathtaking. The weather was super nice and cool compared to Indiana.

We have stayed at this hotel for more than 10 years. This hotel used to be the Days Inn. The suites are very nice with newer televisions in both rooms,2 very nice queen size beds, and a kitchen and dining area. The staff our very nice and helpful. The house cleaning staff very helpful. Hotel is just minutes from beaches and downtown. I would reccomend this hotel. The only thing I didn't like is when I made reservations for next year my rate increased $30.00 per night. I asked the desk person why the rate went up I was told the hotel was keeping up with the other hotels in the area which made no sense to me.

We only stayed one night but the hotel was cozy and comfy for us. We had two queens with lots of space for the three of us. The bathrooms were spacious with alot of counter space. Bed linens were soft and we all slept great. wait till you taste the chocolate cookies upon check in ....Yum!

Property was clean and in good order. Our room was clean and spacious. No real complaints on anything offered. We only stayed one night as we passed through Traverse City. The breakfast area was large and lots of variety with choices. Quiet and location was convenient and we would not hesitate to stay here again.
