One of the Best Beach Fronts in TC! A review of Sugar Beach Resort Hotel
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.
If you want to be on the beach, this is the place, most rooms have oceanfront views, and you can kick back on the balcony and take in lake with a bay view that you will want to come back for. The kids enjoyed the beach, though it was late March, and the indoor pool and game room. There was a mini refrigerator in our room to keep the soda cool, and a wet bar. Parking was not a problem and the lobby was warm and friendly, also had an available microwave and movie rentals.
