Spent 2 nights here. Great location. Close to Old Mission Peninsula and a short drive to downtown Traverse City. We had a ground floor room (108) which had a walk out to the beach, although it was winter and snowy, the view was spectacular. I could imagine, in the summer, it would be quite busy. The room was very clean.... More

Stayed here two nights and had to deal with a rude female front desk employee who was going to "call the cops" on us ( a group of adults playing cards in the breakfast area at 930p) as she thought we were being rude. Several in our group had the rooms surrounding the breakfast area and nobody was being loud;... More

We just spent 2 nights here while visiting friends in TC. We were very happily surprised at the size of the rooms (2 queen bed room) and the cleanliness of the room. Also, the beds were comfortable, the free breakfast was fine, and the staff were excellent. We had a room overlooking the parking lot - which was OK, given... More

The resort is located right on the bay with spectacular views. There is a nice clean bit to sit relax right on the water to boat watch and sunset viewing. The resort is very clean and the staff if over the top friendly. Ground floor rooms or 3rd floor roooms all have the same great view. I would highly consider... More

We had a nice room with a view of the beach from our private balcony. We had two comfortable beds, a nice big TV, fridge and microwave. The Wifi was fast and the free breakfast buffet was simple, but adequate. The bathroom was nice, but it had a very small bathtub.

Our family stays here every year. The hotel is clean, the staff is friendly, great management, and a clean, beautiful beach. Sugar Beach and Grand Beach are fantastic, we will never stay anywhere else!

Had reservations at another hotel that ended up being horrible. We went up the bay and found Sugar Beach. They were able to get us in without reservations and the room was SO nice. It was clean, it smelled nice, nothing seemed broken or dingy. We were SUPER pleased with the resort and really enjoyed our stay.

We stayed at the Sugar Beach resort for the first time this past October. It was a really great experience. We were greeted with a smile and with bubbly agents. Our room had a fresh clean smell and was very clean. We loved the breakfast you can enjoy a great view while eating. We can not wait to come back.

This hotel looked pretty new. Beachy themed room clean, bright, beach front very reasonably priced. Hockey tournament when we were there so all rooms full. Still quiet and breakfast attendant kept everything filled even with mobs of teenage kids eating with a feeding frenzy. Plenty of seating and very clean. No hot food, except waffles but the price was right.... More
