I realize my stay was off season but I thought the room could use a bit of updating...the floor was lumpy and uneven, dark, and the beds were not comfortable. I do understand that this is not a hang out tin the room environment due to the beautiful lake side view, still could be a bit more comfortable and inviting.... More

The hotel is fine but a little dated, my main issues were no laundry service and the heating in the rooms. Breakfast and evening meals are great and for me consistently good over the 3 weeks here. I'll be back!

After a lot of deliberating, my husband and I decided to have our wedding at this lovely establishment. While it is slightly out-of-date as far as decor goes, the hotel rooms were the least of my concern for such an event. And, after a lot of time spent with the staff of this hotel, I know that they are working... More

I say without even asking because one of us is handicap, but the very nice receptionist took care of us without ever blinking an eye! The room was... More

Traveled to East Tawas with my team of 5 people (5 rooms) on business to work with a local automotive parts supplier. Our corporate Travel system only listed about 4 facilities to be able to reserve a room, so I chose this hotel. The view from this location is great on the bay side of the facility. There is a...

For the price....forget it! This "Resort" and I use the word very loosely was not worth $120/night. Room could have been more clean and the bed felt like a piece of plywood with a sheet over it, we did not sleep all night it was so uncomfortable. Not enough staff and the staff that was there did not seem to... More

We stayed here one night from visiting the U.P. headed home. It is an older hotel and has been there for a while. Our room was on the ground level. Outside was the tiki bar and beach. During the peak season it will be louder. The bar was OK but the restaurant had bad reviews so we ate somewhere else.... More

Tawas Beach Resort is at very good location. My wife and our little dog stayed at the resort Aug.27-28th.2013 This was in the middle of the week. So it was quite. I wouldn't want the room we had on the weekend. It was the first room next to the entrance at the far end of the resort. The few people... More
