Historical Traveler Reviews Sugar Beach Resort Hotel Traverse City
We'll be back!
Loved this hotel. It was very clean and well maintained. The staff was welcoming and friendly. The view from the balcony was beautiful. Breakfast was good and the pool was nice and quiet and clean. There was no need to drive anywhere as restaurants are nearby as well as mini golf.
The Sugar Beach is a great place for couples and families! Excellent breakfast overlooking the beach. Nice sandy beach with beautiful blue water. Lots to do including rentals of jet skis and boats on-site. Don't miss a scenic drive on the Lelenau pennisula.
Had a great time
This was a great place for a family vacation! We went in early June before things get crowded. The location is excellent, right on the beach. The kids loved playing on the beach and the adults could relax in the nearby lounge chairs. The staff was friendly and helpful. The breakfast bar (included) was not fancy, but everything was very good. We didn't spend a lot of time in the room, but it was nice and clean and had a great view of the bay. We would definitely stay here again.
Great place to stay while visiting Traverse City. This hotel offers a family friendly atmosphere and staff, an indoor pool with whirlpool, and one of the best Beach Front views you will find in the entire city. The free continental breakfast with waffles and fresh fruits was a nice touch, and saves on the family breakfast budget. I liked the location which provided easy access to Elk Rapids, Torch Lake, Downtown Traverse City, and is within 30-45 minutes of Sleeping Bear Dunes, and the Kalkaska ATV trails. There are also nearby restaurants with Pizza Hut across the street, and Ponderosa just a few blocks further west.
Just returned this evening from our first vacation to Traverse City. Sugar Beach is a great choice if you like to rent boats or jet skis. The two 15-year-olds we brought enjoyed the beach and the pool. The only problem was that the family suites are oddly set up. There are 2 queen beds, table and T.V. in the first large room, with a sofa sleeper, 2 chairs and T.V. in the room facing outside. It would have been nice to have one of the beds in the outer room (which has doors to close it off) so that late sleepers could sleep in that room in a real bed and not be bothered by the early risers when sleeping in the first room. Otherwise, it was a good choice for hotels.
Always enjoy our stay
We enjoy a mid-winter break here every year. We get a room with in-room whirlpool which is plenty big enough for 2 and you can see the t.v.
from it also. Video rentals available, pool and hot tub are nice. The expanded continental breakfast is very good. Lots of restaurants nearby and great scenery.
Best Beach and Staff
The Sugar Beach was great. the low lake levels have had a positive effect on this beach-ITS BIGGER than ever. They groom it everyday along with their sister property the Grand Beach. It looks new and fresh every morning. The staff is outstanding. they make you feel at home from the check in to the check out. I would definetely recommend staying here
Good Bet at Sugar Beach
Beach front rooms are spacious and clean. This hotel could use an additional elevator, however. Things can get hectic at check-out time and if large families are staying. And we could have appreciated more restricted hours on the incredibly noisy jet skiis. I wanted to hear the lake waves, not fools out ripping around on those things. On the whole it's not a bad choice, though.
We walked right out our sliding glass doors onto the beach. Rooms very clean, nice beach, friendly staff, nice free breakfast. I recommend the rooms on the first floor, beach side. Great if you want to go back to your room for something or refill your drink or grab a snack. We just really enjoyed Sugar Beach Resort. Would stay there again!!
Best staff in Traverse!
This beachfront hotel is a true gem! It's located right on the beach which is gorgeous. Along with it's sister hotel, the Grand Beach (I've stayed at both), I've NEVER experienced a friendlier staff in a resort. The rooms are very clean, the complimentary breakfast is great (try the made to order waffles), and they make you feel at home from the minute you walk in the door! I think it's the best hotel value in Traverse City.
