Hampton Inn Traverse City

Reviewed 7 March 2012

Heard the reports of a 10" snowstorm approaching and I decided to lock down a room at Hampton Inn that is located across the street from the park and southern end of the west arm of Traverse Bay. Hotel was empty when I checked in. The pool was closed for scheduled maintenance as well as the sauna ... the hotel arranged reciprocity with a nearby resort but I did not choose to take advantage of that feature. Not walking distance but, close enough to the downtown district for restaurants and taverns ... the nights I was there were the last for Restaurant Week and I enjoyed a couple of venues in two night stay. I did not have a refrigerator or microwave in my room, however they do provide rooms so outfitted. I checked in on Friday night ... Saturday morning breakfast was quiet ... then all the local folks without power checked in and the place was a zoo for Saturday night and Sunday. I had a good time. The breakfasts were not as good as some of the Hamptons, however still provided a filling meal and included waffles, fruit, oatmeal, juices, breads, and the coffee/tea bar that is always open. Hampton Inn in Traverse City is a nice place to stay with friendly staff and nice facilities.

Room Tip: This hotel is set at a right angle to the waterfront across the street ... so all water views will b...

We stayed at this inn several years ago and came back because of our positive stay last time. What a disappointment we had. Our room was tiny even for two people, with no place to put luggage. The closet was in the corner very close to one of the beds.The bed was comfortable and the room very quiet even though the hotel was full. The towels were old and thin and there was only one small bar of hand soap. The breakfast was pretty good but the high tables and stools left much to be desired. Check-in was fast but the young man on duty wasn't particularly friendly and at no other time during our stay did we see anyone at the front desk. No one on duty in the breakfast room either. Guess we'll go elsewhere next time.

Dear SpartanFan,

I’m Dee, General Manager at this hotel. I would like to thank you for offering this feedback about your recent stay with us. I deeply regret that you had such a poor experience this visit. While we take every measure to ensure that our staff is always available, we evidently did not meet this expectation during your visit. We also strive for our staff to be courteous to all and both of these concerns will be discussed with our staff. Thank you for complimenting the continental breakfast and comfortable bedding. I am also sorry the size of your room was not to your liking. We would look forward to possibly booking another room type such as a king studio or study for you if you were to give us another opportunity. I hope that you’ll stay with us on your next visit so we can make this up to you. Please feel free to contact me at the hotel at (231)946-8900.

Sincerely,
Dee Houghton

Rented two rooms on New Years Eve. Joining rooms with one being a king suite. Rooms were clean with all needed items. Staff were courteous. Check-in was quick. Pool and hot tub did the trick for our daughter. Did not eat breakfast but it appeared to be plentiful. Good coffee available in lobby 24 hours. Will consider this again for our next stay in Traverse City.

Very small rooms, but modern and nicely appointed. A nice Hampton Inn, but we've stayed at nicer.

A group of us stayed at the Hampton Inn Traverse City on a weekend getaway. The hotel was great. The beds were very comfortable and the location is great. Breakfast was good and stocked well throughout. The pool and hot tub were both very nice and the fitness center, although small, had very current machines. Every staff member I ran into was very nice. I would recommend to anyone!
