Dirty and tired

by bbi22019

Old resort that is not very well maintained. Housekeeping does a lick and a promise style of cleaning and preparation of the units. Have they heard of the concept of "deep cleaning" occasionally? They also offer cable TV. You can't search channels except to go one channel at a time. Not very current on technology.

Great Hotel

by 25sandy

Pinestead Reef is a very nice hotel. It has accomodations for cooking with a nice kitchen and appliances. The view is great. You can face the water. Location is great. Very close to downtown Traverse City. It has a nice pool and arcade room. The beds are comfortable. Eric at the desk is great.
