A surprise destination to celebrate my husbands birthday proved to be stellar! My reservation was made directly with Krystal. I requested a 4th floor specific bay view room- she delivered! After a disappointing dinner elsewhere off premise, Brandon (front desk) suggested birthday dining here for next eve. A special intimate birthday dinner arranged, thanks to Kelly (FBE Mngr) & Brandon.... More

We saw Jennifer every morning for breakfast. She is the most helpful, friendly server I've ever encountered. I will come back for sure! The food is great, the hotel is beautiful and the surroundings are wonderful.

I was here for the Salmon Classic Tournament. The staff was very friendly and the hotel was very clean. The location is great. I would highly recommend West Bay Beach Resort to anyone looking for a great hotel.

Whoa! $450 plus per night? Who do they think they are? The Greenbrier? This is a Holiday Inn that happens to be on the water and have a pool and a bar. That does not mean it's a resort. In fact, it's far from a resort. The rooms are average in size, the bathrooms are teeny, tiny! The bedding, beds,... More

We decided to take a last minute getaway to traverse city and chose this hotel based on the reviews on tripadvisor. We truly enjoyed our stay, the front desk receptionist (forgot to catch her name) was very helpful in suggesting places to explore. We were fortunate enough to have great weather and took advantage of the private beach area, which... More

Stayed Saturday through Wednesday of Labor Day weekend. We were given the option of a room with a view which would be noisier, because of the nightly music and nightclub OR or a room without a view but quieter. We choose the view thinking it couldn't possibly be that bad. Well, on Saturday night it was very loud. Luckily the... More

Hosted a large event here over Labor Day weekend! Everything was top notch! Could not have been happier. Staff was fantastic and very helpful, food was great and the overall quality of the property was an A+++! Jacqui & Ryan with food & beverage made everything so much easier when planning my event. Could not have done it without them.... More

I'm a local, so when comes to go out on the weekends not a lot of places offers you what Holiday Inn Resort does. It's way different from all the crappy bars on Union. My friends and I come here Fridays and Saturdays. We love the patio (when the weather allows) and The View as well. We have been served... More

Rueben Quijas is the best server ever. Mr Personality and Professional all in one! Best hotel stay ever! James Brunfield was also wonderful. He was our server at linch when we were leaving the hotel. He had a great way of making us feel special!

One of the best hotels I've stayed at! Loved the beach front patio- great music, relaxed atmosphere, dancing, and good food. The friendly service of the hotel staff is what really made our stay as great as it was. Nikki served us on the outdoor patio each night and was super friendly and on point! Eric and Sarah at the...
