I was in town for a convention held at the Grand Traverse resort. Always wanting to be able to "escape" the convention and relax on the off hours, I rarely stay on site. So, I searched and located this hotel online. Prices seem a bit high, but it is in line with the service and standards of the hotel. It's not that physically different than, for example, a Comfort Inn or Holiday Inn. But the level of effort of the staff and attention to detail on cleaning, etc makes the difference. The beach is lovely, with watersports rental on site, plenty of places to sit and relax, waterfront balconies to enjoy at night, and great views of the setting sun. Just the right vibe to relax and enjoy time with the family.
I found it to be a bit quiet for my taste...I'm one to sit out on the patio at night with a small music speaker and have drinks - - it was actually too quiet to do this, I felt I'd be disturbing others. I guess being on a lake is VERY quiet compared to an ocean front beach - - where you have the noisy surf as background noise.
All in all a great stay. Nice pool area inside with hot tub. Well maintained property, and staff very friendly and helpful at all points.
