We checked into our $270 a night room to open the door to cigarette and weed smoke barreling out the door. Immediately went back to the front desk to ask to be relocated and were told no. But they have an "ozone machine" that can run for an hour and take care of everything. We had to leave for an... More

I stayed at Grand Beach after a friend recommended, but was sorely disappointed. Over $300 for 1 night was too much plus they add a resort fee of $13. It was cold and rainy all weekend so no resorting was done. My room was on third floor with a balcony but there were bugs all over the screen so I... More

My family and I have been coming to Grand Beach Resort for years. We have stayed at several other places in Traverse City and this and the Sugar Beach are by far the best!If u are going for the beach, this is the place to be! Only complaint is that the Breakfast area cannot accommodate the amount of guests staying... More

Visited this resort for the first time last week. Tried to check in early around noon, desk clerk took my cell phone number and said he would call when the room was ready. He never called. We arrived back after 4 PM after going in to town for lunch and shopping. When questioned about not being called, he said they... More

My husband and I stayed here for five days while visiting family in the area, and had a good stay. We come to Traverse City every summer and would probably stay here again (especially if a room on the bay was available). Lots of good stuff: - Clean rooms with comfortable beds - Microwave and mini-fridge in the room -... More

After a horrible stay in Mackinac City we decided to cut and run and head to Traverse City. Not only was the price amazing, the staff very friendly, informative, and helpful, but most importantly the room and beach were clean! Many beach chairs to choose from, plenty of towels, water to spray off with after leaving the sand, and tons... More

Last stay was 5 years ago, and nothing changed since my last review at this hotel. Still the best beach in TC, still a good breakfast, pool and great staff. Rooms are updated and clean. I feel the rates are cheaper than my previous visits, had a non bay front room on the weekday for 129/night and 139 for the... More

On two different trips to Traverse City we have stayed at the Grand Beach Resort. It is located right on the beach and along a section of US 31 with lots of restaurants and things to do. The TART trail is right across the street and a great place to run or walk. The hotel rooms are very large and... More

Hello everyone, I stayed at the Grand Beach with another adult and a toddler child (June 6-8). This hotel is not horrible but is not great and there is definitely better out there. As for the good things, the beach was great and the housekeeping team is very good - nice clean rooms which is very important. For the not... More
