The room was tastefully decorated, spacious and complete with all the amenities one could need. The staff is always professional, friendly and very accommodating.

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 location of this is lovely. Traverse City main area is close by and many winery's within a short drive. We could walk right out our room to the beach, sit on a little porch and enjoy the water sites/sounds. ❤️ The room is very clean. The staff friendly. My only complaint is the noise - seems we can hear...

Hard to beat the view from our room here (we stayed on the 3rd floor, beach side). We stayed two nights during the Sip & Savor event at Leelanau Peninsula and were very pleased with the size of the room and the amenities. Big comfy bed, large TV, plenty of room and what appears to be updated bathroom (quite nice!)....
