We ended up booking this hotel last minute, but were able to get a good deal. The hotel is located on the East Bay, headed towards Acme, so its a little bit farther from downtown than we had hoped. The room was very spacious, clean and appealing. Room service was great and even left us a towel elephant (see picture)... More

I gave the Grand Beach Resort a two-star because of the service we received. A tip: book directly with the hotel - don't book thru Expedia or Booking.com. Unfortunately, we learned this on 3 occasions - that we were 2nd class tenants because we used Expedia. 1. When checking in, the reception was telling another customer "Sorry, you used Booking.com...

We stayed her for four night while visiting the TC area. I have never had a cleaner hotel room- it looked brand new. The rest of the hotel and the grounds are also immaculate.The staff here (many young high school/college kids) are really friendly and service oriented. The breakfast is great, my only suggestion would be to have some whole... More

As far as a hotel goes it's fairly on par with what you would expect from a hotel, but where the Grand Beach excels is in their customer service and hospitality. From the first night the receptionist were friendly and helpful with suggestions of where to eat and grab a beer. The continental breakfast was above average and the pool... More

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
