I was visiting TC with a friend and we stayed at Sugar Beach for 1 of the nights. It was affordable and clean, it worked for us for what we needed for just 1 night. We were there in the off season but it's nice that it's right on the water.

Good lodging. Large group of kids staying for soccer competition. They were noisy and rude, but not the hotel's fault!! Pool and game room area and lobby very clean. Rooms very clean also. Very nice accommodations!! Beautiful views!!!

Good hotel. Excellent sandy beach. Overall, well maintained. Excellent, friendly staff - very helpful. Breakfast was good but would be nice to have a hot protein (egg, meat etc.). They do have boiled eggs, waffles, breads, muffins, Danish, cereals, 4 juices, milk, coffee, tea, yogurt, fruit... Nice view of the bay from breakfast room. One complaint - the blinds are... More

I sent this e-mail and never received a response: Hi, We had a recent stay@ Sugar Beach on 4-13-15. I was surprised by the road construction. The hotel construction and lack of notification was a major disappointment. The room itself had shredded carpeting. The elevator and hallways were both dirty with inexcusable paint parts etc. not vacuumed. The stairways were... More

My husband and I stayed the weekend, because it was a gift to us for our 30th anniversary. We were very disappointed when we walked in the room. Nothing spectacular. No view, that was a HUGE disappointment! For $168.00 a night there should be a view and not of the parking lot! There are 2 TV's in the room, the... More

Our third stay at this hotel since they opened. The room we had was huge with a great view of the lake. Beds were very comfortable, room was very clean and the staff had made an elephant out of towels that was sitting on the bed when we arrived! Front desk and housekeeping staff were extremely friendly and the breakfast... More

Comfortable rooms, great pool, awesome beach views (can't wait to come back in the summer). Private decks that overlook the water. Nice continental breakfast included. Walls are thin, staff strict on noise levels.

Walked into the entry no one around then a young lady walks out does not say a word or greeting ... then without looking up says "last name!"... More

I usually book at another beachfront resort in TC, but was unable to get a room on the weekend needed. I am always hesitant to book anywhere that I don't have first hand knowledge of, but it worked out just fine! Nice, beachfront room with balcony. Room was clean and spacious. One thing I did notice when entering the room... More

Room was clean, spacious, and in good condition with a little wear and tear showing on furniture. We were in a first floor room with an amazing view of the lake and sliders opening right out to the beach, although it was too cold to take advantage of this time of year. Staff was friendly and accommodating to our children's... More
