Very nice. Staff was great, breakfast was usual hotel fare and nothing to rave about. Gravy was lukewarm. Room was very comfortable and quiet. View is gorgeous!

Good hotel, needs more consistent staff training

Pros: location and room size
Cons: staff training and room maintenance
The front desk staff was helpful, but the breakfast lady was unfriendly. Overall good hotel, with good location on the beach, and comfortably-sized rooms. But there was a big crack in the bathroom mirror, and the door handle to the balcony was broken.

Enjoyable stay.

Location: We enjoyed exploring Sleeping Bear Dunes Nat'l Park. Loved our dinner at the Apache Trout Grill..though a long wait & a little pricey it was worth it.
We stayed in this hotel for 3 nights. I booked based on the reviews of other travelers and was not disappointed. The hotel staff was friendly and gave good recommendations on places to eat based on what we wanted. We had a lake front view room with a little kitchen area with microwave and refrigerator and 2 queen beds. It was very comfortable. If a beach is what you want, there is a private beach but it is relatively small. I liked that it was lined with cherry colored chairs and also lounge chairs. I also liked that there was a common sitting area on the second floor just outside our room. A great place for gathering. The hotel seems to have thought of everything with a great DVD selection for in-room viewing, a good workout area, a game room, and a nice inside pool area. There are fresh cookies in the afternoon and a coffee and tea bar that is always fresh. The breakfast beat anything else we experienced in a hotel on vacation with a fresh fruit mix, waffles, and bacon and eggs and someone on duty that regularly kept it stocked. Overall we were extremely pleased with our stay and would not hesitate to stay again!

Right on the beach

What a wonderful place to stay. Great indoor amd outdoor pools with hot tub. Room was amazing with a tv in the mirror in the bathroom. I loved the design of the bathroom along with the room in general. Right on the beach with firepits available to use! I'm not a coffee drinker but the coffee in the lounge is my favorite of any coffee. The stay were always smiling. I felt very welcomed. Parking was limited but we found a space. Little on the pricy side. Their breakfast was great.

Good day! Thank you for your stay and your review. I'm glad you had such a wonderful experience and that you were able to enjoy our indoor and outdoor pools and hot tubs. Those new TV mirrors in the bathrooms are pretty awesome, huh? We're proud of them and I'm glad you got to play with one. Leelanau Coffee Roasting Co. coffee is awesome and we're also proud to offer it. We just started offering their Chocolate Cherry flavored to go along with our regular and our Snickercookie flavors. I'm happy that you enjoyed it so much. Have a great day and thank you for your review! For the love of hospitality, Jonathan P. General Manager

Our Home Away From Home

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet, great bay views
Having stayed at a other quality hotels in the area we always return to the Cherry Tree Inn. It is convenient to may attractions and emenites in the area. The staff and personnel are always courteous, friendly, and helpful. The rooms are always meticulously clean and exceptionally sound proof. The views of the east and west bays are amazing. You just can't find a better value in Travers City.
