The room was very quite, (Bayside) I did see some local traffic on the beach and a few using the private docks not a big... More

We have stayed many times at this fabulous resort. The rooms are clean and fresh, with comfortable beds, and now new carpet!. The staff is friendly and they aim to please. The Topsider Restaurant has great food at reasonable prices. It can be a casual breakfast while enjoying views of the bay, or in the evening it can be romantic... More

I don't even want to get started on first impressions, because frankly nobody in this city is friendly or even acts normal. When we first arrived to the hotel my facial expression ( -_- ) and if it hadn't been... More

Upon arrival, I learned that my room was not ready....it was 4:30 PM. When I finally got into my room, I found a man's sock next to my bed. SO, I went down to the desk and requested another room.

The service was lousy, the owner was rude, the pool area had broken tiles with jagged edges, and the food was mediocre. The beach was nice, but you can get that anywhere in Tawas. Will never stay there again.
