Guest reviews

  • Older travelers

    they had difficulty finding our reservation,however after that was resolved our room was beautiful clean very quiet the free breakfast was great the staff friendly and willing to help

  • Older travelers

    Loved the location and the friendly staff. We had requested a "beach view room" and when we got to our room it was a "parking lot view." When we called the front desk they said they didn't see that request, but honored it, which was very nice. Really liked the bowl of fresh fruit that was available at check in and the wide selection of videos for rent.

  • Older travelers

    Friendly and helpful staff, Excellent location and decent price. Great place to visit.

  • Older travelers

    The fact that you had kids running up and down the halls all night and making everything a big mess {hallway and breakfast area}. We were very unhappy with our stay for this reason.

  • Older travelers

    Every though we were assigned a room on the busy road side of the hotel, our room was quiet and restful. We enjoyed our stay

  • Older travelers

    It is a quality resort with a quality staff. The staff seemed to enjoy what they were doing.

  • Couple

    It was a fantastic place! The tv's could be updated. The breakfast is simple. The view was awesome and close to everything! I enjoyed my stay!

  • Single

    View from beachfront room, location of breakfast area, pancake machine, refrigerator in room, nice pool, workout room, pancake machine.

    Old iron, old/small/CRT TV, breakfast needs sausage, bacon & eggs too, walls kinda thin (could hear other guests talking in their rooms), boisterous guests partying on the balcony at midnight on a weekday, parking spots too narrow.

  • Older travelers

    Our view was beautiful. The room was clean, the staff was friendly, we were close to shopping and the Wineries.

  • Older travelers

    My wife and I went to Sugar Beach in Traverse City on a three day trip to see the fall colour. Our room was very clean and comfortable. All the staff that we met were friendly and helpful. They have a very nice pool and exercise room and the location on the bay and the view are great.

    Don't expect much from their continental breakfast. I would call it "somewhat lacking".

  • Older travelers

    Beach front, balcony & staff

    We paid extra for a hot tub that wasn't available with beach front as requested

  • Older travelers

    The location was excellent cleanliness of beach,breakfast came with room.

    Seems like it needs interior facelift or modernizing.Plastic beach chairs were breaking down.

  • Group of friends

    Great staff! We woke up and noticed we had a flat and a man who worked at the hotel fixed it for us. Very friendly and polite, location is amazing.

  • Single

    Large room and I liked the layout of the sink seperate from the toilet/shower. Nice big walk in shower. It was nice also to have a microwave & mini fridge.

    The tv was pretty old & poor resolution.

  • Older travelers

    Wonderful end unit with privacy regarding other rooms, yet beautiful room with fantastic view of the bay. Decor was fresh and relaxing, and my wife and I really enjoyed our short visit. We've already decided we would stay here again and will recommend this area and hotel to family and friends.
