The hotel was nice, parking convenient, staff for the most part was good, except for dining room and outside bar. Dining room we had to sit and wait and wait before someone even approached us for drinks. Nobody seemed to know what they were doing. In the evening we sat outside in the bar area; the waiters were going to everyone around us but never approached us. My husband went inside to the bar and got our drinks. The waiters waited on tables next to us but never approached us. Maybe he thought we were an apparition! Our room was okay, but considering the price we had to pay, we were not impressed!
Pros: Location and the front desk staff. They were great!
Cons: See above!

Pros: The location is great for visiting Traverse City.
Cons: This hotel is not at all what it is hipped up to be, just another old Holiday Inn. It is my understanding that there was major renovation to gain their "Resort" status, well they missed the mark. New vanity, old nasty tub with poor shower head, hard bed.
