Would not recommend this hotel to anyone! Paid 225 per night plus taxes for king size bed. Walked in and there was a terrible odor in room. Could not get rid of it. No other rooms available. Also, killed 4 flies within first hour. Killed 2 more later that night. Bed lumpy. We left by 6:45 on Sunday am. Husband...

We used booking.com for the first time to get our room here. We had stayed here about 8 years ago and knew we liked it, so we checked availability. So far, so good. We were supposed to get a 2 bed room with a king and a queen. When we got here, they upgraded us for free to this apartment...

We had a wonderful 49th Anniversary weekend get-a-way. The Sugar Beach was a great choice. Room was very nice with a beach front view. Close to everything ! What's not to love about Traverse City! King bed was very comfortable, husband couldn't understand the 1/2 pillows ! They could use a little meet & greet in the lobby with snacks...

We enjoyed our stay! The hotel was clean & the pool was SO nice. Hottub was amazing. The area was quite & contentinal breakfast was very good. This hotel was very close to town, a 3 minute drive to town where there were tons of stores & brewery's. About 10-15 mintues to winery's. Beautiful area.

We paid almost $275 for one night here earlier this year and it was definitely overpriced in my opinion. We visited because of a wedding in town but this place was definitely not worth the cost. We weren't impressed with traverse city at all, and not this place either.

Stayed here for 3 nights starting Sept 25th. Great beachside resort, very clean and well kept. Fabulous view of the beach & bay from our 2nd floor balcony. Husband didn't like the bed but I thought it was Ok. Helpful front desk provided maps, dining & tourist tips. Wonderful indoor pool & jacuzzi. Would definitely stay at again!!!

Room was very clean and had all the amenities we needed,, Breakfast room was very nice with a wall of windows facing the beach and even a small balcony. I travelled with 2 "morning" people who enjoyed sitting there watching the sun rise, Would definitely stay there again but would request a beach view. And the rain shower was GREAT.
