This is the perfect time of year to visit the Traverse City area: the weather is lovely, the beach is still pleasant and the rates are advantageous. I was pleased that I was able to get a reservation only two weeks in advance, as from researching my options, the GBR seemed to fit my needs in every way. A beachfront... More

We've stayed here a few times but in the off-season expected better rate. Be prepared to pay a higher rate but anticipate taxes will boost final payment by approximately $30. Rooms are large, clean and nicely appointed but shower is aged. Pillows are small, square and not of the quality a high-end hotel should have. Being a "resort", not certain... More

This hotel was the best we stayed at during our vacation! Very easy check in and great views! The room was also spacious and had more room than your average hotel room. We had a balcony that we took advantage of with fantastic views of the water! All the staff from front desk to housekeeping were friendly! Beds were comfortable... More

We saw the Hotel as we drove by. We needed a reasonable priced CLEAN room. We got it! The staff was great . The view, room, And beach were all top notch. We will stay there again. The breakfast was the only thing that was low class. Eat someplace else!

Hotel positives were clean and with beachfront and friendly folks. Negatives were outrageous price for what we stayed in and 4 miles from downtown TC. Breakfast was also minimal with long lines. I know this was Labor Day weekend but still a bit of a ripoff. Great view of bay although our room faced a parking lot so mire if... More

I had read reviews of this hotel on Trip Advisor and all were very good so we decided to give it a try...we weren't disappointed. Our room on the 3rd floor, facing the water was one of the nicest we've stayed at in a long time. Everything here is fresh and clean and it smells good, too. One thing I... More

I had never really been satisfied with a TC hotel before this one. The staff were all friendly and helpful, the room was clean and spacious (you know, spacious for a hotel room, but roomy enough to mention it!) and the breakfast was nice, too. The perks of being able to walk out and enjoy one of the lounge chairs... More

Great location on a large beach in the heart of East Bay. Jet ski rental available on the beach, Pirates Cove adventure park across the street. Our room (1 king, 1 queen with beach view) was spacious and had a balcony that was larger than expected. Refrigerator and microwave were adequate. While you won't find solitude here, this was a...

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...
