Very nice place. Stayed four days, check in was friendly and efficient. The girls working the front desk were absolutely great, very accommodating. We were able to check in one hour early. All staff were friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean and spacious. We paid extra for a balcony and a view of the lake, it was worth the...

I showed up and asked to check in. It was 3:20 pm. I was told the room was not ready but would be ready by 4:00 the official time. While standing there I heard several others told the same thing. Returned at 4:10. People lined out the door. One person behind the counter and she was on the phone. The...

We've been here for the past three nights, visiting family in the area. Our 2nd floor beachside room has a great view and the beach is very nice--wide and sandy. The rooms are fine (though the air conditioning seemed to have two modes--no cooling and Arctic mode). Breakfast is fine--continental plus make-your-own waffles. Nothing unexpected, but they did pass my...

Sugar Beach is a basic resort hotel. The best part is that it is not overly large and our room was on the beach. The room was a basic king with a couch and small table. The bathroom was very nicely appointed and the room was very clean. We had a balcony overlooking a small beach that had kayaks for...

My husband and I brought our three children here for our second stay and it's still a great place for a bigger family. The suite comfortably sleeps 6 (honestly probably up to 8 since there are 2 KING beds and a pullout, plus lots of room for sleeping bags, should it be allowed). Our room walked directly out to the...

We stayed one night at this hotel, and had a room with a view of water. Turned out it was right on the beach, and a beautiful view. Room looked like it had been recently renovated. Breakfast was included, and was very good. It was in a great location, and would stay there again!!

Great hotel and location, friendly staff, beautiful beach - walked out of first floor room onto patio and beach. Breakfast was good - make your own waffles ! In-room refrigerator, microwave & coffeemaker are always a great bonus !

I was visiting TC with a friend and we stayed at Sugar Beach for 1 of the nights. It was affordable and clean, it worked for us for what we needed for just 1 night. We were there in the off season but it's nice that it's right on the water.

Good lodging. Large group of kids staying for soccer competition. They were noisy and rude, but not the hotel's fault!! Pool and game room area and lobby very clean. Rooms very clean also. Very nice accommodations!! Beautiful views!!!

Good hotel. Excellent sandy beach. Overall, well maintained. Excellent, friendly staff - very helpful. Breakfast was good but would be nice to have a hot protein (egg, meat etc.). They do have boiled eggs, waffles, breads, muffins, Danish, cereals, 4 juices, milk, coffee, tea, yogurt, fruit... Nice view of the bay from breakfast room. One complaint - the blinds are...
