    Whoever decided a dance club belongs in a hotel where people SLEEP should receive a coupon for a free lobotomy. This is THE worst combination of two things I can think of. Although the hotel is alright, it's not worthy of listening to Mambo #5 or the Macarena until the wee hours of the morning. Staff could use some training on how to interact with people in a more friendly, down to earth manner as well. Also, there's no reason any pet should not be allowed to remain in the room unattended if they are in a kennel. If you're looking for Hyatt-style lodging - this is not your venue. If you want something affordable, with the basics, just to get you by while you enjoy the rest of the Grand Traverse Bay area, then you'll be just fine here.

    The Holiday Inn was the perfect place for our three day trip. My dog loves swimming more than anything else. Having a dog friendly beach right there made it perfect for us. The hotel isn't fancy but it's on the most beautiful spot on the bay with walking to downtown, open space and anywhere else. For us this had everything we needed.

    Wonderful! Pet lover More than one year ago.

    My family loves to travel and we especially enjoy being able to take our dog with us when we go on vacation. We recently stayed at the Holiday Inn West Bay in Traverse City and found the accommodations to be wonderful, the staff friendly, and the night club was not a problem at all. We stayed for a week and our room was not over the lounge at all. Their night club is only open on Friday and Saturday nights so even if we had been close to the club, we're pretty heavy sleepers and doubt it would have been an issue. They have an indoor and outdoor pool, they're right on the beach and you can even go out on a catamaran without having drive anywhere. Our kids and dog loved the park nextdoor and we enjoyed many walks along the shoreline into the downtown area just two blocks away. This Holiday Inn is the perfect place for families and their pets. We always have a great time when we stay there and highly recommend it to everyone.

    LOUD!!!!!!!!!!!! heather More than one year ago.

    We stayed last August with our 2 dogs and the dog friendly rooms are right above the dance club. It was sooo loud we couldn't sleep. Loved the location but the room was atrocious.
