Great for a day at the beach..
Guests are generally delighted to find that the hotel sits opposite a nice public beach with a playground area. The hotel is also, however, on a four-lane highway so beach-goers are well advised to stroll up to the cross-walk if heading over on foot. The beautiful Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore is about 45 minutes away. Guests also comment on the good variety of restaurants, shops, and other amenities in downtown Traverse City, about 3 miles away.
