We were at Sugar Beach for 3d/2n last week. This is our 3rd year staying with them while in town for hockey tournaments. We were in a suite - room 220. The room is great, gorgeous views of the bay and beds were comfy. Negatives were the door lock on the door was broken off on one screw and barely...

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...

My wife and myself planned this vacation just a day before memorial day weekend holiday... totally spontaneous... googled traverse city in the maps... reviewed hotels and just tried for the first time.

My husband and I spent the past weekend at Sugar Beach Resort and enjoyed ourselves as we always do. Staff are friendly, attentive and the facilities are very clean and well cared for. Recent renovations enhance the beauty of this lakeside resort. We enjoyed a guest appreciation on Saturday afternoon featuring a couple of wines from a local vineyard, Black...

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.

I really wanted to like this place. When we pulled up we thought it was a nice location. It is right on the water (but so are LOTS of other hotels in that vicinity). We were greeted by a young blonde lady that was extremely friendly and helpful. So far so good. We booked our room through one of these...

Room was good for three or four people because of the option of a larger room with a king and a queen bed on the water side of the property. Check in was smooth, but unable to get into the room until 4pm although we arrived earlier. The breakfast was minimal and the room was small for the weekend crowd.

My first impression when I pulled in was that it was a good sized hotel that looked cute and charming. Check in went smooth, but the lobby smelled of chlorine from the pool. It was kind of difficult to find our room. There are no signs at the doors or outside of the elevators to tell you which rooms are...
