This hotel on the beach facing the lake and with a balcony view is very enjoyable. Our clean room was large with 2 sinks and a microwave oven and a refrigerator. Good maid service. The breakfast was minimal, basically a cold buffet with no meat or eggs, inefficiently laid out and served -- very easy to skip in favor of... More

After staying here for one night last summer, we decided to return and spend the first week of September. We were not disappointed ! Check-in was effortless and the staff were more than accommodating. A special thanks to Lauren for all of her help. The room was extremely clean and well decorated. The bonus feature for us is that the... More

Went with several friends who had been to Traverse City before----this was my first time. We got a very good deal on a suite: $744 for 3 nights, which worked out to $186 apiece or $62 per person per night. The quarters were a bit cramped, but that's what we signed on for. The room was a bedroom with two... More

We normally stay at another hotel down the beach from this but there were no vacancies for a beach front room so we chose the Sugar Beach Resort instead - So Glad we did! We booked the two queen bed room facing the bay for 2 nights. I asked for an upper level corner room when I reserved (through the... More

My husband and I recently spent four nights at the Sugar Beach Resort. We wanted to be right on the beach after spending our afternoons exploring and enjoying this beautiful region of Michigan. Our room was on the third floor with a perfect view of Grand Traverse Bay. The balcony was spacious with room for a table and two chairs,... More

I stayed here for 3 nights with my family (including 2 young kids). We are very familiar visitors to the Traverse City area but wanted to try somewhere new. We chose Sugar Beach Resort for its beachfront location and indoor pool. We arrived shortly before the 3:00 check-in time. Our room wasn't ready but we were allowed to use the... More

We like to go when the prices are reduced, and the weather is still nice. Everyone there is always nice and the rooms are clean. Like to take the bus to the Casino. Breakfast there is great, Still would like to see return of the waffles though.

We booked in advance to stay for two nights at this resort on Lake Michigan. Our king room was very dated. A big old, unused whirlpool tub that sat beside the bed was likely the reason why the wallpaper in the bathroom was peeling. There is only one sink to wash your hands and prepare your tea and coffee, the... More

This is a nice hotel that overall is good quality and a nice beach. Our only complaints were similar to others on here. The breakfast was just okay and in our case the cleaning service was pretty slow. Our room didn't get cleaned until 8:00 in the evening. But the staff is all friendly and the grounds are well kept.... More
