My wife purchased a deal on the upnorthlive website back in March. We got on their website on Sunday to assure the room we wanted was available, and it was so I called. I spoke to Lauren at the front desk and told her I'd like to book this suite which was available online and we were using this promotion.... More

My wife and I stayed in Traverse City for our 10-year anniversary. This hotel is right on the Bay on the East side of Traverse City. This hotel is not luxurious, but if you're looking for an overall great stay, you can't go wrong at the Grand Beach. Service is competent, knowledgeable, and helpful. Very courteous. Even the housekeepers are... More

I have been enjoying this hotel for many, many years. This is my home away from home! The renovations must be complete, because everything was perfect! The pool and the hot tub looked impeccable. My room overlooking the water was exactly as I expect it to be, crisp, clean and on point. There is nothing to complain about. The views... More

When we stayed here the street in front of the hotel was undergoing major construction and the hotel was also in the middle of renovation. Traffic was very difficult getting to and from the hotel with lines of cars because of the construction. We had to take two elevators and walk down two corridors because of work on the carpets....

Last year we stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment & this year was a family suite. Walking in the entry door; sign warns there are updates going on. Our family suite had not gotten the updates. Room was clean, but worn. Front desk, not quite as helpful. Probably will not be returning considering there are many other choices. Front desk... More

The best thing about this hotel is its location right on the "beach" area. If you get a room that is beachfront, lovely views of the lake though you will also see all the other properties on the strip. Apart from that its a fairly decent hotel, nothing spectacular, nothing bad either. Breakfast is included which is convenient though it... More

Stayed for two nights and the room was clean, and updated. Bed was comfortable and there was a mini fridge and microwave. The staff was great and the breakfast buffet was typical for a free breakfast but was well stocked and looked after.

Cute hotel. Very friendly staff. The only complaint we had was the pillows weren't comfortable. We stayed one night as a quick get away from home. Loved the view from our room. You could walk right out onto the lake area. Rooms were clean but you could hear other kids playing in the hall late at night. Pool was nice... More

The family suite was a good size/layout for our family of 5 (2 parents with boys 13,12, & 10.) The room was clean and beds comfy (all except the pull out couch/bed, but kids didn't complain.) The main door to the room needs updated as you can hear everything that takes place in the hall (not good when the ice... More

Nice location, clean comfortable rooms, but customer service has been getting worse and worse over that past couple of years. They used to have a very nice breakfast bar with hot Belgian waffles as well as cold items, fruits, yogurt and such. We have stayed there in the past and enjoyed the included breakfast. This is a nice savings versus... More
