This hotel had an average hotel room with a microwave and frig, and the only thing that makes it better than a motel was that it was right on the beach. We got a first floor room on the beach but should have saved our money. We could have walked down a floor to the beach. The beach was right... More

Couldn't find the "resort" so assume it's in name only. The cost of the room was that of the Ritz Carlton, the service was okay, and the breakfast was less than the standard fare of a Super 8 motel. Won't stay here again, I'll save my money for the "beach view" and spend the $11 fee for the state park... More

Save your money and pick something a little cheaper. We arrived and were given a room key. When we walked into the room there was already someone in the room. Needless to say the person in the room was very upset. The desk apologized and told us she would refer the issue to management. Our second room was much better... More

The room was very comfortable and the refrigerator and microwave came in handy for the times we didn't feel like going out to eat. The location was good since it was directly across the street from miniature golf, which my 12,13 and 18 year old loved to play at. It is also just a few blocks from a grocery store.... More

There was a very large group that took over the beach and lounge chairs, making it difficult for other guests to enjoy the location. There was smoking on the patios and beach, contrary to a posted non-smoking policy, making our room and time on our balcony unpleasant. There are no rates other than full during the summer season and the... More

Good location on the beach east of town. Large but average bedrooms. Continental breakfast is average and crowded. Staff was put out when we were checking out 30 minutes late. The hotel was full (we got the last room) and the parking lot wasn't big enough for all the cars. $300 a night for a parking lot view is a... More

Been staying either here or Sugar Beach (sister resort) for most of our trips since 1996. We keep coming here because of beach access, view and activities. It all here right in front of you. This year, even after a terrible storm, worst in over 30 years, they delivered. Great rooms, wonderful, friendly staff. My onlydowner? Wish the breackfast was... More

This is our third stay at the "Beach" resorts in TC. All stays have met our expectations: clean, terrific location, nice and accommodating staff. We will continue to stay here as we visit TC often. Suggestion: during peak seasons, make reservations as the "no vacancy" sign is always on. Also, stay beach-side for spectacular views.

I just love it when I come across great customer service. It's so refreshing and anymore it's so darn hard to find. Grand Beach has the kind of customer service your parents used to tell you about (parents of 40 somethings). Simply put, it's awesome. Stayed here two nights while touring Michigan on motorcycle. My stay just happened to coincide... More

This was the first destination of our 3-part trip (other destinations were Mackinac Island and then Ontario). It was an awesome beginning! We booked last minute, and the only room available was the pricier 1st floor beachfront. We reluctantly paid for it, as choices anywhere were limited. We were all so glad we did!! Being 1st floor beachfront at this... More
