Empire Lakeshore Inn
"Stayed in the Fall of 2014 to check out the area during the leaves changing. Great place to stay. The rooms do the trick, nothing fancy, but hey what are you looking for. Flat screen TV, a mini fridge, and great soaps. Yeah I said it most hotels you stay in the soap sucks and theirs along with the shampoo were great. But all in all this little hotel is in a great location. During our stay we headed to Traverse City for a day, Frankfurt for a day, and headed up to Glen Arbor a couple times to enjoy their nightlife. All of these drives are easy and very scenic. Now for the dunes, make sure you check out the National Lakeshore scenic drive. It is outstanding, especially the main lookout point over Lake Michigan. You will not be upset at all that you stayed at Empire Lakeshore Inn or that you chose this charming area."
