We stayed two days recently. This was our first year staying at this resort. Service: Overall good. Friendly bartenders and front desk. Servers in the restaurant were hit or miss. The included breakfasts were ok. We ate dinner there one night and all enjoyed their meals. Atmosphere: While this is an older property, our room was clean. Bikini's is a... More

My family had booked a place north of here near Grand Lake, when we arrived there was no one in the office, so we needed a different place to stay. We decided driving a little further than we had hoped originally would be better. So we stayed here and the staff at the front desk were exceptionally friendly. Even the... More

The breakfast was non existent, didnt want to wait another half hr to be seated, the hostess kept giving excuses as to why no one was being seated, they were being cheap & you had to pay after 11am, which is check out, they make people wait so they end up paying..we just got sick...

Rooms were very clean. Check in was smooth. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Full bar, full restaurant rent some a jet ski, out door bar and relax on the sandy beach. We had a good weekend and we will stay there again. Give this place a try you shouldn't be disappointed.

This is likely the best lodging in the area. It is a spacious property right on Tawas Bay. We stayed in beach front rooms which overlook the scenic bay and Tawas Point State Park in the distance. The rooms were comfortable and clean. We had a fine evening meal in the restaurant which is partially subsidized by the hotel. The... More

Went up for the 3rd time as a Michigander...allot of activities for adults in the evenings, free 10.00 per night bar cash and hot breakfast vouchers. Staff is super friendly and never actually left the resort grounds. Only a 3 hour ride from Dearborn and heading up again soon! Highly recommend if looking for relaxing afternoons and exciting evenings!

We have stayed at this motel since it was a Holiday Inn. Usually we stay there 1-3 times a year. The location on the water is scenic and the proximity to downtown is appealing. On our last visit I left my prescription glasses in the room. Both the person I spoke to in "hospitality" and the front desk clerk told... More

The resort has a great view of the bay along the back of the building. The room was comfortable and clean, the beds were nice, the walls were thin as we heard later that night though. The restaraunt was average and the bar was not very good at all. After 20 minutes of sitting at a table, we finally went... More

Couldn't have asked for better service. The front desk guy who checked us in was so nice, professional and informed about local events, restaurants. Annette also was so helpful, even after we'd left and I'd forgotten my charger. The bar was fun with karaoke and pool table with good craft beer. Would go again.
