We arrived on Friday of Labor Day weekend. Check-in went smoothly. The place smells a bit musty and the furnishings are outdated in the rooms and lobby. Our room faced the beach (room 106). There were visible cobwebs in the corners along with a shirt left on the floor from the prior guest (gross!). The hallways were dirty all the...

Our latest visit to Tawas Bay was marred by the reservation policies that this resort has...they tell of a 72 hour cancellation policy, and a 2-night requirement to book your reservation. We were fine with both, and we gave our credit card to hold the rooms, as you would with all hotels. It ended up we could not make it...

This place could be so nice, but sadly updates have not been made. Right on the Bay, endless possibilities. We spent an overnight and were disappointed in the condition of our room. We were given a bay view king room with a sofa sleeper. The room had a terrible smell that did lessen as the room cooled. Sofa sleeper had...

Great and friendly people work here. Clean and well maintained. A little dated but well taken care of. Will go back for sure. Beach is right there. Bar and restaurant are right there at the resort. Close to town if you want to do a little shopping. State park is a short drive away.

2 years ago almost exactly we had a horrible experience with them not having our reservation after we had confirmed and then horrible customer service offering no help to find us somewhere to stay since they were overbooked. So, this year when we decided to come to East Tawas for a long weekend, we couldn't find anything else available. We...

We stayed two days recently. This was our first year staying at this resort. Service: Overall good. Friendly bartenders and front desk. Servers in the restaurant were hit or miss. The included breakfasts were ok. We ate dinner there one night and all enjoyed their meals. Atmosphere: While this is an older property, our room was clean. Bikini's is a...

My family had booked a place north of here near Grand Lake, when we arrived there was no one in the office, so we needed a different place to stay. We decided driving a little further than we had hoped originally would be better. So we stayed here and the staff at the front desk were exceptionally friendly. Even the...
