One of the most beautiful places in America!

A travel blog entry by happytrails123


... America's choice of "The Most Beautiful Place in America" and voted one of America's Top 10 Family Destinations by Family Fun Magazine-2012. Austin & Cory had a blast running up and down the various sand dunes we stopped at while touring the Park. We stopped for dinner out and then headed home. Plans were made to conquer the 450' sand dune run tomorrow. It stays light so late, it’s hard to get to bed much before 11 PM!

Sixty Candles

"Mom, what's wrong with Dad?" I ask. He looks like he just had a stroke, I think.

“He looks okay to me,” Mom replies.

“Oh, I guess you’re right. He’s acting normal now.”

I’m 15 years old, and our family is having our 1967 Thanksgiving dinner. We’re all talking, laughing, and eating. I notice that Dad is sitting motionless with a ...

Made it to our Place in Empire, MI

A travel blog entry by dolsontravels


We arrived at Indigo Bluffs on Saturday afternoon, after a stop in Wayland, MI to have some work done on the RV. This will be our first time we will spend most of our summer on the lot we bought last year. This is the first time we have seen it since the patio was enlarged, so we were kind of excited to be here.

We loved how the ...

We are hopeful for a miracle, of course! Meanwhile, we are managing our lives very well and enjoying every second we have together. He loves his job and has not missed a day since the new regimen.

    Great Staff, working hard to improve


    I have stayed at the hotel a number of times, and yes, the hotel is old, but they keep it as clean as possible, and are doing work on it constantly to improve it. Also, the staffs attitude and effort makes up for any shortcomings. They are kind and considerate and helpful, and make your stay enjoyable. The Park Place has the best location in TC, being downtown, just a couple blocks from the Bay, with awesome views from the Top of the Park. We love it, and will return again.

    Great place, Awesome location, great amenities


    Stayed here through weekend of March 19th and it was very nice. New location would be very conventient being in the middle of downtown.

    Hotel is fairly old but well maintained. No complaints at all about the room - very spacious. Hotel staff was friend and amenities were top notch - Minervas is a nice restaurant in the hotel and it is also a very popular (and good!) happy hour location. The hotel is very family oriented though. There is a VERY small but neat piano bar on the top of the hotel with wonderful views of the bay and city, but get there early if you want a seat. Great experience and highly recommended.

    New staff fixed things :)


    We almost didn't stay here due to the reviews, but I'm glad we did!

    Nice Hotel, fun indoor pool area, great lake view


    Elegant, older hotel, First Class lobby with free internet. Indoor pool, hot tub, free parking, health club. Try to get a room in the newer wing over the parking deck. Our suite was spacious, two double beds and a sofa bed. We had all 5 kids in the room with us and still didn't feel cramped. The restaurant overlooks the lake and the view was wonderful. Would definitely stay there again. Bid 3 star on Priceline.

    Historic..yes... Free Internet ...But... thin walls...(..dirty too)


    I love the look of this hotel and its proximinty to favorite TC shops and dining...

    Great view at the top


    The staff at the Park Place was very helpful. The best thing about the hotel is the great view from the top. If you are not staying at the hotel, stop in and grab a drink at the bar, the view of the city and the bay is spectacular. I am glad I got this hotel on PRICELINE since the regular rate is over-priced for the actual hotel room, it's older and the amenities aren't that nice.

    Dirty, dirty, dirty


    I was staying here as part of a large scale seminar with 140 participants. My husband and 1 year old daughter came too. It was so dirty that we would not allow our one year old to crawl on the floor.

    The bathroom was filthy, the windows were filthy and had hundreds of dead bugs on the sill, the room was never vacuumed and we had to beg for toilet paper. My group goes here every year for the same seminar and we will NEVER stay at the hotel again. When I told the front desk about the problems, nothing was done. I could not believe it!

    Nice view


    Nice view of Lake Michigan. Close to down town shops, historic home district, and beach. Clean pool, hot tub, sauna, and exercise room.

    Nice, elegant-looking lobby area.

    Rooms were clean but could use a bit of updating--outdated wall paper, chipped bathroom fixtures.

    Not a great value for what you get, but the location couldn't be beat.

    Good for shops


    This hotel had a good location for browsing in the downtown shops. The room had a nice view of the bay and the staff was fairly pleasant and helpful, especially the check-in clerk. There was some construction going on across the street, which did wake us up. The value was not exceptional.

    Not clean...


    This hotel room was not clean when we checked in and realized the rooms are very small.

    Normally we use the coffee pot with plain water once before using it with the coffee powder and when such thing was done, we found lot of dirt in the plain water dripped out and we never felt like using the pot.

    We asked for a different room for the next night, but the response was very poor.

    I will not definitely not recommend this hotel for the money that you pay.
