After our first night we headed out in the morning to head over to Leland, MI. We returned at around 3:30PM and found our room had not been cleaned yet. We called the front office and was told someone would be there shortly. Two hours later still no one showed up. Decided to use the spa and found the water...

Great location on the East Bay, perfect for families or couples. I had a second floor room right on the lake; even number rooms face the lake/beach. Rooms are clean and well-maintained, have free wifi, and TV with DVD player. Table and chairs plus microwave and mini-refrigerator means a family can save some money by having a quick lunch in...

Stayed here with my husband, daughter and 18 month grandson. The microwave did not work until maintenance came up and discovered it was not plugged in. The refrigerator froze everything. The pak n play was not set up correctly and necessitated three calls before it was child safe. Plus they charge 10 dollars extra per day?!? The staff are friendly...

I have stayed at this particular resort twice in the last five years, most recently in late August. I really like this resort. Rooms are clean, the beach itself is very well-kept and provides lots of comfortable lounge chairs. The daily continental breakfast is very nice as well, and we appreciated that it was included in the room price. Staff...

Traverse city has become a favorite for my family. This was our 2nd time staying at Sugar beach, and i'm impressed with how well the property has been maintained. Unlike many of the resorts we have visited in the past, that seem to run down after a number of years, Sugar Beach has not only managed to keep the property...

Room was nice, very clean, and good decor but a bit overpriced. The pool was very pleasant. Had a little issue with the coffee maker while trying to make hot water. It had the previous peoples coffee still in it. :-/ Otherwise everything else was up to par. Great choices for the free breakfast too.

This was a last minute stay for my husband and myself. A little pricey but the view was beautiful, beaches clean, room decorated nicely and clean. Breakfast satisfactory. Boat rental and parasailing right there. We will definitely return next summer for a longer visit.
