5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

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

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

rundown not worth the price. 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!
