bachelorette party for my sister

i want to throw a night on the town bachelorette party for my sister in traverse city for about 12 girls. i was thinking of staying at the motel 6 which looks like it's close to being on the bay. she also hinted at wanting a party bus, but since it's a group of young girls on a budget i'm wondering if the location of motel 6 is within walking distance of anything cool. bars/restaurants? that way a party bus wouldn't be necessary and i could cut out some cost. i'm ok with getting a taxi but i'd rather be in a central location where there is stuff happening. any comments? thanks!! :)

Ashley.... if you want walking distance to anything, you'll have to look at the Holiday Inn, the Park Place Hotel or maybe the Bay Shore. The hotels in Traverse aren't really built for walking to downtown. Sorry!

Park Place, as state above, would be the most ideal. Otherwise, Motel 6 is about 3 miles away. You can call BATA (Bay Area Transportation Authority) as they do have after-hours service by reservation. www.bata.net/ridebata_cityride_afterhours.htm

I've walked to downtown from the Bayshore as mentioned and it is definitely do-able. What I like about the Bayshore is the free breakfast in the morning -- more than just muffins. Omletes, sausage, Potter's pastries, yogurt, cereal, etc.

Park Place is in the thick of things and would be most idea.

Holiday Inn is a tad closer than Bayshore and it does have Shimmer's one of the better places to dance.

Have fun!!
