Stayed here for two nights last week with my husband. On the plus side - Clean hotel, good amenities, beautiful sandy beach. OK breakfast - although they say it's open until 10:00am, the staff started cleaning up and putting food away around 9:40am both mornings, so if you go, get there by 9:30am. The weather was cool and on the...

The hotel was very clean, staff friendly and beautiful views. Pool was open until 11, with 10-11pm being adult swim only which was a nice feature. The room was nicer in person than what is shown on the internet. Pleasant surprise!

I was a little hesitant after reading a couple of the reviews, however, I booked anyway. What a great place!! The room was large with a king size bed and sleeper sofa. We had everything we needed. Staff was helpful. Breakfast was what we expected. Would definitely stay here again!

This is the perfect time of year to visit the Traverse City area: the weather is lovely, the beach is still pleasant and the rates are advantageous. I was pleased that I was able to get a reservation only two weeks in advance, as from researching my options, the GBR seemed to fit my needs in every way. A beachfront...

We've stayed here a few times but in the off-season expected better rate. Be prepared to pay a higher rate but anticipate taxes will boost final payment by approximately $30. Rooms are large, clean and nicely appointed but shower is aged. Pillows are small, square and not of the quality a high-end hotel should have. Being a "resort", not certain...

We saw the Hotel as we drove by. We needed a reasonable priced CLEAN room. We got it! The staff was great . The view, room, And beach were all top notch. We will stay there again. The breakfast was the only thing that was low class. Eat someplace else!

Hotel positives were clean and with beachfront and friendly folks. Negatives were outrageous price for what we stayed in and 4 miles from downtown TC. Breakfast was also minimal with long lines.
