HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 29 January 2017

A group of high school friends enjoyed a winter weekend in Traverse City. Sugar Beach was a perfect place to stay. We had a suite that included a bedroom with two king size beds and a pull out couch that accommodated all of us. The amenities, including microwave, fridge and coffee maker were a plus. The pool and hot tub...

The hotel was nice and staff was friendly. Rooms were well kept up and clean. The pool area was extremely nice and very large. Only negatives were the beds and the free breakfast....the beds were lumpy and the breakfast was very basic - no scrambled eggs and no meat. What they did serve at breakfast was good though. We would...

I can not believe how nice and spacious of a suite (Family Suite) we got for next to nothing! We usually stay at the Cambria Suites but decided to check out the Sugar Beach Resort because we needed a Tesla Destination charger for our car. The Family Suite has two king sized beds, one in a bedroom, two big screen...

I had the impression that we were at a fancy upscale resort. Our kids thought we were crazy to stay at such a nice place. Little did they realize that it didn't cost as much as it looks like it would. The pool and spa looked as though it was just put in and the water looked clean enough to...

Had a ground floor lake front room. Queen and king bed, great linen and pillows. Staff was friendly check in quick. Clean well presented room. Breakfast was less than desired but probably average if the space hadn't been so crowded, we hit on one of the busier weekends.
