Pinestead Reef Resort
Ranked #22 of 40 Hotels in Traverse City
Reviewed 18 August 2016

Right on the beautiful beach, great view of the bay, nice sunsets. Rooms are large and roomy. Full size bedroom with 2 queens. Living room, dinette and 3/4 size kitchen with full size fridge and oven/stove which is nice when you just don't feel like going out. Pool is decent, although we spent all our time on the beach and in the bay. Ski jet, paddle board, kayak, etc.. Rental within walking distance on beach.

Room Tip: Get one on ground level for direct access to the beach

Been coming here since the 80s as a kid. Now I take my son here. Great beach, great pool. The game room is dated though, old games that kinda work. My door in unit 335 stuck badly too. Great place over all.

The best description of this hotel is "used and abused." Severely outdated and barely cleaned from previous visitors. Trash littered the patio and beach the entire stay and was never picked up. Odd smell in room that never went away and dishes that needed to be washed before use. Would never stay here again. Embarrassing to charge $390 a night for a suite. Gross.

nice location, within walking distance to several restaurants, all rooms have balconies which over look the East Grand Bay. Gorgeous blue water. Tables on deck, with umbrellas, chairs. Also lounge chairs on grassy courtyard or in sand. Free for grabs. Everyone was very pleasant from staff to guests. Pictures do describe this resort to a T. Some rooms need a little interior updating, but still very clean. excellent place for a quick relaxing get away as a couple or family of all ages.

We prefer to stay close to the downtown area but had a hard time finding something with a kitchen on the water. Rooms were a good size but bedroom furniture was dated. Each condo has a large outside deck overlooking Lake Michigan.

Room Tip: Free wifi, lakefront, kitchen
