“Relaxing Vacation”
Reviewed 29 July 2013

We found the hotel to be very clean and up to date. All the rooms have been remodeled. Hotel is in a good location to restaurants and entertainment. Located next door to a amusement park. However, the rooms were extremely quiet. Pool and hot tub area were very clean and inviting. Located within walking distance to Traverse Bay and beach across street. Found dining area for the complimentary breakfast to be a bit small and cramped, with limited seating. However, the food was good and fresh. To me, this was only draw back to hotel. Staff was friendly and very helpful. One other draw back, there is no fitness center. My wife and I joined a club down the street for $75 for a 10 visit punch card. Very nice facility.

Room Tip: I would say all the rooms are quiet.

Great value for price & excellent location. Traverse City has a lot of hotels but many are in the $200/day range in the summer which is just too much. This hotel hads been recently refurbished in a simple but tasteful way.

This was our first experience at an AmericInn and it met every expectation. We only stayed one night due to a quick trip, but will consider other locations for future travel needs. The only thing that would make the experience better would be to have the location on the bay.

We take an annual trip to the Traverse City area to enjoy the natural attractions (Lake Michigan, Sleeping Bear Dunes, Old Mission Peninsula) and the "unnatural" attractions as well! : ) We have stayed at several different hotels, but Americinn was one of our better experiences. We had no problems with unfriendly staff members - everyone we met, from the front desk to the maids, were extremely friendly and helpful. The pool and hot tub had a reasonable time frame for families, and then adult only time began at 10:00 pm. There were several convenience machines with soft drinks and snacks, and the ice machine was always stocked and ready. There were courtesy treats at the front desk and fruit in the dining area, a public computer and wifi in the rooms (no annoying password!), and a free, well stocked coffee stand. We stayed 3 nights, and encountered no noise from the outside or the hall. The room was attractively decorated (loved the 5 matted and framed prints of interesting trees), beds were comfortable, bathroom clean, and there were several sources for suggestions for things to do, places to go and restaurants available in the room that we took full advantage of. The complimentary breakfast included yogurt, bagels, fruit, and waffles. Parking lot was large and easily accommodated all of the vehicles present. (We had parking problems at the hotel we stayed at last summer.) The hotel is next to a Dairy Queen and a fun park with miniature golf, zip line, and bumper cars/boats. It is a short drive to the center of town, but we didn't consider that a problem as there were several restaurants, gas stations and stores on the way that we made use of. I would definitely stay at the Americinn again!

We only stopped here for one night on our way up to the UP. The front desk staff was extremely helpful and pointed out the best ways to get to the Cherry Festival and park for free. The updated room was very nice. Breakfast was well-stocked and good. Families might enjoy the adjacent Pirate's Cove. I would stay here again.

My husband and I usually stay at at local "inn and suites" down the road but chose the AmericInn for our most recent trip as it was half the price. While it's not on the water, the location is great with a lot of great establishments within walking distance. You can tell that the shell of the building is older but they have done a great job updating the furnishings in the room we had as well as the common areas. The entire hotel was very clean and the staff was incredibly friendly. Our room was at the far end of the hotel but we were able to use an key-access door very near it so our walk was short. I highly recommend giving them a try. We've changed our "favorite" place to stay and will be visiting again soon.
