We came here for a wedding with the family. There was plenty to do between the beach, pool and activity center the was filled with video games and a pool table. There was also a workout center and sauna for the adults. Friendly staff clean rooms overall an excellent place to vacation.

My husband and I came to the resort to help celebrate a 50th Wedding Anniversary and we decided to stay at the hotel instead of drive home. WOW, that was a mistake!! The resort is so over priced for what you get. The lady at the front desk was less than friendly, the elevator was scary and the room was... More

If you in the area best place to stay with free view of lake Michigan up close. Also Dir. of Marketing is great host. Great place... More

this hotel was fabulous. I stayed for a friend's wedding and the rooms were extremely nice, the beach was right next to it, and the staff that took care of the wedding, as well as, myself personally, were extremely friendly while doing their job well.
