“Excellent location and amenities”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2014

Sugar Beach was not my first choice to stay at in Traverse City, but I would absolutely stay there again. It is centrally located, has a nice beach, wonderful breakfast. The price was just right. The décor was beautiful. The only issue was being next to the stairwell and hearing the door slam several times at night. Fortunately that stopped before 11pm. Wonderful staff also.

Room Tip: 2nd floor is by the breakfast center, but pool is next to the lobby. Ground floor rooms with a pati...

This hotel was great. It's located right on the beach, has great lounge chairs and even offers umbrellas. Other hotels don't all have these things, some only offer chairs for the sand. This matters as the water is cold, so having quality seats helped to enjoy the beach. The front desk was very helpful and the room was well taken cared of. We would stay here again.

Quiet, clean and comfortable. This place smells clean. Beach behind the resort is perfect. The room comes with HDTV, DVD players, closets a sink, microwave, granite and it's simply put COZY. The 3rd floor balcony view is superb! Front desk was super helpful and gave me lots of menus and brochures for things to do. Great staff! Oh and the pool is heated and there is a arcade on the first floor for everyone!

Great location, right on the beach! Nicely furnished room, good beds and modern bathroom. Soundproofing was good, didn't hear the neighbors! Breakfast was included in the price. Staff very friendly. Swam in the indoor pool, it was great! Will definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: People with children would enjoy the lower level room with a patio door walkout right to the beach!

We had a room on the second floor with a lake view. The room was spacious and nicely furnished but there was no closet. There was a cabinet with plenty of drawer space but very limited hanging space.

We were there to attend a wedding and did not use the beach or any of the facilities so I can't comment on that. The thing that we liked best about the hotel was the staff. They were friendly and helpful and went above and beyond to make sure we felt welcome.

The breakfast is rather sparse but I think that is because they have no cooking facilities so they are limited as to what they can serve. I get that, but less of the prepackaged pastries and more healthy options would be an improvement.

Room Tip: Spring for a lake view and be on the patio when the sun sets over the lake.

This is our 2nd stay at the Sugar/Grand Beach resort. The hotel did not disappoint. Price is very reasonable, we had 2 rooms, one for our kids. Beach was clean and beautiful. Suggest a room overlooking the beach, but you have to book early. Contrary to other reviews pool is nice size. As big as most hotel pools I have seen. Great hot tub that is right next to the pool...you can jump back and forth. Breakfast was good too...plenty of food. But you might want to try one of the awesome breakfast spots in Traverse City. So many choices. Our room was next the elevator and breakfast area and we had no noise issues..and the hotel was full. Traverse City looks to have many choices for your stay, we find that you can beat the view here, the price and the quality...you get a lot for your money....

Room Tip: Book early and get a room overlooking the beach

We totally enjoyed our visit to this resort. The rooms were clean and spacious. The best part of the room was the view. It was incredible! One thing that needs improving is the breakfast. Otherwise the hotel was great!

Room Tip: Any room with a view of the water is excellent! Higher rooms have better views.
