Rates

Traverse City is the place to be in the summertime in Michigan and is why there is such a difference in Motel Rates from Summer to off season. Even in the summer months we try our best to keep our Motel Rates the lowest in the area.

We have been experiencing tremendous turmoil with our mother due to her illness. Management went above and beyond anywhere that I’ve stayed! I’ve worked for the airlines for 23 yrs and in all my travels, I have never met more kind, sympathetic and sincere people. I would highly recommend your motel to anyone. Thank you for everything!
