Overall, this was a great place to stay. All the staff we encountered were very helpful & friendly. We stayed in a king size courtyard room beginning on Labor Day. It seemed like an ideal time to go because the rates were lower & we seemed to have the area to ourselves. I thought the shower was really nice & large & we also had a large jacuzzi tub in our room. Not a fan of the sink outside the bathroom, but it was OK. The room was clean. They kept it pretty cold, but it was easily adjustable. The coffee maker in our room didn't work right, but it didn't matter because they have free coffee/tea 24hrs/day in the lobby. They also kept large bowls of oranges, apples & bananas in the breakfast area at all times, which I thought was nice. The bed was just Ok & my husband & I thought the pillows were a bit hard. As far as noise goes, you've got your usual suspects of other hotel guests, the fridge & ac unit. Even though we were on the street side we weren't bothered by street noise. The breakfast was adequate with a variety of foods to get you started on your day. If you don't like what they have, just bring your own because the rooms have a fridge, microwave & coffe maker.

The water on the beach is crystal clear! We brought our own kayaks & were just amazed how far out we could go & still see the bottom.

Room Tip: If you're budget minded, the courtyard side is fine. Not a water view, but no road noise & you still have lots of places to sit & enjoy the beach side.

Great spot to stay. Right off the beach, near restaurants, not far from the downtown area, there is a casino near by. The beach is gorgeous and clean. We were able to jet ski and parasail. Wonderful area!!!

We stay here every year and they have never disappointed. The rooms are all updated, modern, and very clean. There is a microwave, mini fridge, and nice TV in every room. The beach is one of the largest in the area and it's groomed every morning. Breakfast is a little sparse but the hotel is located on the main road so you can literally walk to dozens of restaurants. The front desk and housekeeping staff are all polite and efficient. They have an indoor pool which is also clean and well maintained.

Stayed this past weekend with family in two adjacent 1st floor suites that were walk outs to beach. Our room (128)  was ideal for 2 day stay. There was a nicely shaded porch with cafe and picnic-tables. Perfect for dining al fresco, overlooking the Bay. The room was clean with comfortable beds, modern,  spotless bathroom, well equipped with lots of wardrobe space for storing belongings, small fridge, extra sink and hi-speed, "no fuss" instant wireless. The beach is raked frequently and was perfect for the little kids; soft reddish sand and water that is shallow to your knees at least 500 feet out. "Big kids" need to venture out further to be able to swim comfortably. Lots of rentable activities on beach (parasailing, jet skiing, etc.) and nearby, but mind, the water trampoline isn't free of charge (as we mistakenly thought) and you will be asked to vacate it if you don't pay.  Note: the free breakfast draws the longest line-ups we have ever seen for a continental breakfast, so be prepared to wait during the busier seasons - although we think it could be avoided by re-thinking the order of items. The very popular pancake maker kept running out or needing to be fixed, and held up the whole queue for others behind; perhaps a separate queue for that item might move things along? 

TC AREA: Lot's of restaurants to choose from within walking distance. Also, don't miss the downtown area of TC, there are some great coffee houses, restaurants, microbreweries, art galleries, shopping from mostly independently (non-chain store) businesses. Not a Starbucks in sight in downtown TC.  Check out Sugarkissed for sweet treats and melt-in-your-mouth frozen yogurt, Brew for coffee and lunch, and Brilliant Books for great reading. If you want to experience delicious, authentic Italian food this side of the world,  venture by car out to Trattoria Stella in Grand Traverse Commons, a former state hospital converted into upscale shops, restaurants, galleries and condos.

Based on trip advisor reviews, we knew this property was not a 5-star resort but we were disappointed with the condition of our room. The beach access is very nice with shallow, clear water but chairs are taken early in the day which is frustrating especially when most people were not even sitting in their chairs. We had a courtyard, first floor room, and it was very humid and sticky in the room. THere was a used towel in the bathroom from the previous occupant and the AC unit cooled the room but did not remove humidity. We think it was just circulating the air in the room with no exchange of air. There was also black mold in the bathroom above the shower stall (which was addressed by maintenance while we were gone during the day). We also called for extra blankets but were told that they were out of blankets which was also frustrating. As noted in previous reviews, the furniture was older and the armoire had an odor of dirty/sweaty clothes. The front desk staff was extremely friendly and made sure problems were fixed. It may be a different experience on an upper level room or on the beach side.
