We stayed in #305, a two story, 2BR,2Ba condo.Beds were double, not queen, but comfortable. There was a pull out sofa, but we did not pull it out. Downstairs BR was small, good thing there was a closet to put luggage in. Downstairs bathroom is tiny, shower only. Kitchen is small, coffee and filters provided, kitchen towel and rag, supplied....

On the positive side, it gives you more living space than a motel room and our unit (201) had a small fully equipped kichen and a balcony overlooking the water. Main negative was the lack of sound proofing - you could hear the people walking around above you and you especially hear the traffic from the main highway in front...

This hotel is really a group of condos each of which is owned independently. If you get an updated condo- it's perfect....if not it's a bit disappointing. Pool is great, beach is great. With price going up so much though not sure if will go back in 2017.

Hello, Thank you for your review. We appreciate you bringing some concerns to us. You are correct each condo is individually owned and each has a little bit of a different décor. We strive to keep units updated and fresh and let owner's know the feedback of their unit. There are units scheduled to be updated this coming Fall season....

Just stayed the weekend with my family for a lacrosse tournament. Great location and great place to chill out after a busy day. Rooms are clean and stocked. Our bathroom was a bit tight with a very small shower but it worked for the weekend. Staff accommodating but not very warm. Checked out and desk clerk's response was "ok". Beach...

Another summer spent at North Shore Inn in Traverse City and another year I felt right at home. We have been spending out summers here for about 18 years now and I wouldn't stay anywhere else. First location! The water level has risen to almost it's old height and you can again hear the waves right outside your room. It's...

We stayed here this past weekend for the cherry festival. We were amazed by how clean the room was and what a homey feel it had. We were in room 206 which had a view of the beach. We didn't get to take advantage much since it was a chilly weekend but the fact that it had nice chairs and...

This condo resort offered decent value. It has a nice beach right out back with most of the rooms offering waterviews. The water in the beach is rather muddy and reedy, and could be maintained a little better, but the resort did comb the beach sand daily. The rooms were a great size offering up to two bedroom, two bath...

This is a beautiful place to stay with all you will need for your home away from home. Great views, nice amenities & even daily housekeeping. Loved the 2 bed/2 bath condo for our business trip to Traverse City.
