Enjoyed our one night stay. Great location right on the beach with beach chairs, kayak equipment, other beach activities. Rooms were spacious, updated, clean. Clean pool and hot tub. Friendly greeting and check-in, with helpful advice on restaurant choices etc. One improvement could be in the complimentary breakfast service, where on this day the workers were a bit overwhelmed keeping...

We have been coming to Traverse City since the 90s. Most of the time we stay at Grand Beach or its sister resort, Sugar Beach. It's just ideal. Your room is steps from the beach and the views are so calming. You can parasail, paddle board or even kayak. Or, my favorite. Beachtime!

The beach front rooms have balconies overlooking Grand Traverse Bay. Worth the extra money. Clean. Clean clean. Updated decor. Comfortable beds. Pool. Exercise room. Breakfast is adequate but no yogurt. The staff is well trained and displayed professional conduct during the long check in process at 4 pm.

I stayed at the resort my last night in Michigan. Very close to the airport. The rooms were nice and up dated. I did not have a view of the lake , but enjoyed the bed. They did service a breakfast in the morning. They had a computer to check for restaurants, check in for flights and print boarding passes.... More

Stayed 1 night for vacation. Great friendly staff, property is well kept. I requested a high floor, lake view when booking online and was amazed at the view, and the sunset was phenomenal. Spacious clean room with refrigerator and microwave. Would recommend for families and couples on a vacation.

Jill at the front desk was a life saver after a horrible experience with the Motel 6 across the street. Stayed here in the past and she got us in on the busiest weekend in the summer. The staff are all great, the facilities are top notch and the rooms are comfortable and clean!

This hotel has a great location on East Bay, with a large sandy beach and plenty of lounge chairs. You have ready access to boat and jet ski rentals, and parasailing rides. Across the highway is Pirates Cove (mini golf, go karts, etc.) and there is the state park at 3 Mile just down the highway. You are a short... More

We had a good experience at this resort. The room was clean and the view to the lake was awesome. The beach was really nice too. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The only issue we had was the breakfast. Breakfast was very crowded and food and drinks were not replenished to meet the demand.
