I wanted to book a property right on the beach so we had a "home base" just steps away. We are 4 - 5 star type of travelers but knowing there isn't that sort of property in Traverse City, based on reviews, this hotel seemed to fit the bill. And it exceeded our expectations. The room was large, clean and... More

My wife stayed in the room while I played golf. We left the room at 1:30 pm and left the card out to have the room made up. Only one towel was left and that was on a wet wash cloth. No trash was emptied and the bed wasn't made. Got less than the response expected from the front desk.... More

My wife and I stayed here and it was very clean. The beach was really clean and they had great options of jet ski rentals (weather was too cold for us) but they looked like new skis. Good location to downtown and everything else. Definitely will stay here again.

Sugar Beach was not my first choice to stay at in Traverse City, but I would absolutely stay there again. It is centrally located, has a nice beach, wonderful breakfast. The price was just right. The décor was beautiful. The only issue was being next to the stairwell and hearing the door slam several times at night. Fortunately that stopped... More

This hotel was great. It's located right on the beach, has great lounge chairs and even offers umbrellas. Other hotels don't all have these things, some only offer chairs for the sand. This matters as the water is cold, so having quality seats helped to enjoy the beach. The front desk was very helpful and the room was well taken... More

Quiet, clean and comfortable. This place smells clean. Beach behind the resort is perfect. The room comes with HDTV, DVD players, closets a sink, microwave, granite and it's simply put COZY. The 3rd floor balcony view is superb! Front desk was super helpful and gave me lots of menus and brochures for things to do. Great staff! Oh and the... More

Great location, right on the beach! Nicely furnished room, good beds and modern bathroom. Soundproofing was good, didn't hear the neighbors! Breakfast was included in the price. Staff very friendly. Swam in the indoor pool, it was great! Will definitely stay there again.

We had a room on the second floor with a lake view. The room was spacious and nicely furnished but there was no closet. There was a cabinet with plenty of drawer space but very limited hanging space. We were there to attend a wedding and did not use the beach or any of the facilities so I can't comment... More

This is our 2nd stay at the Sugar/Grand Beach resort. The hotel did not disappoint. Price is very reasonable, we had 2 rooms, one for our kids. Beach was clean and beautiful. Suggest a room overlooking the beach, but you have to book early. Contrary to other reviews pool is nice size. As big as most hotel pools I have... More

We totally enjoyed our visit to this resort. The rooms were clean and spacious. The best part of the room was the view. It was incredible! One thing that needs improving is the breakfast. Otherwise the hotel was great!
