If we would of had more time to find another place to stay we would of asked for our money back the minute we walked into our room. The stairway up to the second floor smelled like some on had gotten sick in it. They had huge fans running in the hallway, we never did find out why! Once in... More

Just spent another weekend at Tawas Bay Beach Resort. Outdoor bar was open and weather was great. Good live entertainment both inside and out that my son and his wife really enjoyed. Only downside is the place could use some interior room upgrading. Other than that staff was friendly as usual, good comps for food and cocktails and not sure... More

This is a 2 1/2 star property: those expecting more might be disappointed. But for what it is, we thought it rated 4. The breakfast was served & food was very good, while service was a bit slow. The hallway was clean & bright. Our king bay view room was nicely furnished & clean, with a good AC, nice shower/hot... More

We arrived on Friday of Labor Day weekend. Check-in went smoothly. The place smells a bit musty and the furnishings are outdated in the rooms and lobby. Our room faced the beach (room 106). There were visible cobwebs in the corners along with a shirt left on the floor from the prior guest (gross!). The hallways were dirty all the... More

Our latest visit to Tawas Bay was marred by the reservation policies that this resort has...they tell of a 72 hour cancellation policy, and a 2-night requirement to book your reservation. We were fine with both, and we gave our credit card to hold the rooms, as you would with all hotels. It ended up we could not make it... More

This place could be so nice, but sadly updates have not been made. Right on the Bay, endless possibilities. We spent an overnight and were disappointed in the condition of our room. We were given a bay view king room with a sofa sleeper. The room had a terrible smell that did lessen as the room cooled. Sofa sleeper had... More

Great and friendly people work here. Clean and well maintained. A little dated but well taken care of. Will go back for sure. Beach is right there. Bar and restaurant are right there at the resort. Close to town if you want to do a little shopping. State park is a short drive away.

2 years ago almost exactly we had a horrible experience with them not having our reservation after we had confirmed and then horrible customer service offering no help to find us somewhere to stay since they were overbooked. So, this year when we decided to come to East Tawas for a long weekend, we couldn't find anything else available. We... More
