Called and made a reservation for a week.. Get my confirmation back and it was only for a day, email back and without any kind words or apologies the reservation is changed. Walked into the entry no one around then a young lady walks out does not say a word or greeting ... then without looking up says "last name!"... More

I usually book at another beachfront resort in TC, but was unable to get a room on the weekend needed. I am always hesitant to book anywhere that I don't have first hand knowledge of, but it worked out just fine! Nice, beachfront room with balcony. Room was clean and spacious. One thing I did notice when entering the room... More

Room was clean, spacious, and in good condition with a little wear and tear showing on furniture. We were in a first floor room with an amazing view of the lake and sliders opening right out to the beach, although it was too cold to take advantage of this time of year. Staff was friendly and accommodating to our children's... More

We stayed at the Sugar Beach and must say it is one of the nicest hotels we have stayed at, the service was awesome, room fantastic, view magnificent! Breakfast was great... I would highly recommend this place for a romantic get away.

We drove into town on a Thursday night, expecting to find a room fairly easily, for a decent price. NO! We had to check out a few smaller motels, and they had room, but the rates were ridiculous. So, having stayed here before, I decided to check it out. They had a few rooms left, with a view of the... More

We stayed two nights in a villa during the iceman cycle race weekend. How amazing the place is. 2200 square feet, 3 bedrooms, 3 bath, washer and dryer, 25 feet from the water, huge living/dining area, heated tile floors, wine refrigerator in the wet bar area, and great island in the kitchen area where we snacked and talked. The dining... More

My wife and I love TC. We were visiting for a wine tour and wanted to find a place with a jacuzzi tub. Sugar Beach was one of the only ones left...and here we are! First, our price was $89/night for a first floor with a nice view of Hooters. Not bad, really, considering there's a king size bed and... More

Usually stay here once or twice a year. This time the hotel is really showing that it needs an update, a good cleaning or both. Bedding very old and worn; stained bedspreads. Walls and ceilings are in need of attention; repainting. Hallways look beat up, walls and carpet need attention. Breakfast is the same-waffles, cereal, juice, coffee, yogurt and bland... More

My only complaint was the weather it rained all 3 days we were there. Not the resorts fault. The room we stayed in had a mini fridge ,microwave... More

The room was fairly clean and the beds comfortable. The toilet had a crack in the base and leaked onto the bathroom floor. We had a balcony, however, the gnats were so prolific we couldn't set out and enjoy the view of the bay. I was not at all impressed with the breakfast service. Nothing hot so all you had... More
