Ok, this is a really nice place. We had the huge suite with elephant themed bunk beds in a jungle room that our boys went crazy over. It was the best. Nice staff, great towels, very warm pool that my wife actually got in (not a typical occurrence), comfy beds, clean, and easy. And of course, there's the beach. Perfect.... More

Very nice hotel just newly remodeled. Room decor was very pleasing and inviting. This hotel has a great sand beach right on Grand Traverse Bay. We will be returning in August 2016. This hotel is just minutes from downtown Traverse City. Also, very close to Old Mission Peninsula where we spent the day wine tasting. This is one of the... More

Clean and comfortable rooms. Friendly staff. The continental breakfast was adequate. Very pretty beach with lounge chairs and large umbrellas. Bring medium to large sand shovel to dig a hole in the sand for the umbrella. I recommend using the parasailing service and boat rental located at the end of the beach.

I've been visiting this resort for years and it only gets better with each stay. Today we experienced the ultimate in customer satisfaction. The owner himself started up a conversation while we were waiting for a non-related tour. There was a problem with our booking and even though it had nothing to do with the resort, he reached out to... More

We stayed only for the weekend but enjoyed every minute. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was comfortable and a nice size. The breakfast was a typical continental breakfast but with the added caveat of a lake view and outside porch option. The beach was clean and there was a jetski/boat/paddleboard rental right at the dock

We recently stayed at Sugar Beach in a family suite. The staff was friendly, room was clean, pool area nice and the beach was clean. It was nice to have breakfast in the morning. The main road was tricky to get onto. It would be nice to have had an over walk to get across the street.

This hotel is right on a soft, sandy beach. We enjoyed our quick stay here except for a few cons: -the beds in our room were terrible. Hard and lumpy. - the roll away bed we requested was horrible. My 12 y/o could barely sleep on it. - there was a hair in the refrigerator which totally grossed me out.... More
