On the way to the UP and had just left Sleeping Bear Dunes. We needed a place for only 1 night. Found this place on TA and it's the kind of place we seek out on road trips. It's an older,very well maintained, non-chain, roadside motel full of nostalgic charm. We went into the office and were given a great rate but the sweet lady at the front desk wanted to show us the room first to make sure we liked it. It was older but super clean with a refrigerator and microwave.

The housekeeping gets an A+ here as well as the staff. The lady at the front desk was very friendly and helpful with dinner suggestions. The bed was decent but not super firm in this room so if you need a really firm mattress you might wanna ask to check a room and bed out first.

The place was not full at this time in the off season so noise was not a factor for us. I love these older motels because you can pull your car right up to the door of your room. Very convenient. It is in a nice area and well lit, so safety was not a concern here.

When we went to check out, they had complimentary coffee, orange juice, and muffins! All in all, it was a charming, kitschy, clean room at a great rate!

From the time we arrived till the time we left customer service was wonderful. We were able to check in early, then we were shown our room for approval by the Cony,(what a sweet lady). The room was small, but very clean. We had a king size bed. Cony showed me where an extra pillow and blanket were for just in case. There was a coffee maker, microwave and mini frig in the room. Also, on the off season there was coffee in the office. The bed was very comfortable and there were plenty of plugs for charging our phones. There was only a shower stall in the bathroom, which I loved! Because seriously who takes a bath in a motel room?! There was also free wifi and cable tv. We were on the first floor and it was very quiet. We will definitely be staying at the Sierra on our next trip to Traverse City.

Sierra Motel is a small older place, reasonably priced, in a good location. Room was very clean!
Beds were very comfortable. Good WiFi and cable TV. Overall a basic room but above average in that it was well maintained and clean..
This motel is well located on the Main Street south of the lake.

We were in Traverse City for an event. Almost all the hotels we booked! We got the last room at the Sierra Motel. We loved it! The owners were continually looking out for our needs. The property is great value. Across the street is the Best Western and the rates are more than double for a room with a bed and a shower. Why pay more? Next time we return to Traverse City we'll stay here for sure. One thing to be aware of......most restaurants shut down around 10:00 PM even on the weekend. No fault of the Sierra though.

Room Tip: Small property with about 21 rooms. We stayed on 2nd floor. No elevator but easy to get to.

We stayed for 3 nights over labor day weekend. We first loved the way were greeted in the office. Such a kind and accommodating lady. She showed us to our room before checking in to make sure we were happy. We loved our second floor room. It was exceptionally clean and quiet.
This is a vintage Up North kinda place so if you are looking for Hilton ammenities, they are not here. We were thrilled with the rate and central location. We are looking forward to our next visit to Traverse City and we will certainly be staying at the Sierra!

Room Tip: Room 129 is big and quiet
