“Perfect hotel and location”
Reviewed 18 November 2013

As we prepared for our summer vacation to northern Michigan, I spent weeks looking for a hotel trying to decide between resort locations, beach locations, etc. We decided on Sugar Beach Resort Hotel and hit a home run. The hotel is perfectly situated with the downtown area close by and lots of restaurants and other activities near you also. The hotel itself is very clean and everyone was extremely helpful with directions, etc. It has laundry facilities on-site, as well as a continental breakfast each morning.

If possible, request a room on the first floor overlooking the bay. They have patios with picnic tables that just extends your living space outside some. There is a private beach with plenty of chairs as well as rental items such as paddleboards, jetski's, etc right on the beach.

We will definitely stay here again !!!!

Really pricey for the summer season, but where in Traverse City isn't? GREAT views, private, quiet beach, and wonderful service. The room was so clean with a refrigerator and a microwave. The continental breakfast was great too! It made for a wonderful weekend.

All around great place to stay!!! Great Rooms-clean! Breakfast staff was amazing!!! Tub for two was great after an all day trip around the peninsula at the wineries! Restaurants right across the road! Just don't recommend the shuttle to the the casino--take a cab! unless you don't mind stopping at ALL the hotels on the way!!!!!

The location is In a great spot. A state park is right across street which is on the water. Typical Hampton inn. It was clean, good breakfast but the breakfast room needs more practical seating. The sofa's are nice in the breakfast room but sit to low down for the tables to be used to really eat off of. the staff is very good and very attentive. Rooms are comfortable and the wifi worked well.

We were very pleseantly surprised when we arrived at Sugar Beach as we had booked what we think was the last available room in the city at the last minute! It was very nice looking and clean and our room was very spacious with a seating area with a TV as well as a TV by the bed. The tub for two was a great plus though it took A VERY long time to fill the tub! It has a fantastic beach area to sit and drink some wine in the last days of fall. The indoor pools and sauna was nice for unwinding at the end of the day as well. The service was excellent. We had one small issue of our own doing and it was taken care of immediately. I will consider coming back here in the summer when we can enjoy the beach for swimming as well!

Room Tip: Get the Honeymoon suite!

Excellent place to stay. Rooms are very nice & super clean. No need to go out for breakfast as the continental breakfast is wonderful. The rooms are a little pricey, but we stayed only one nite & they took a senior citizen rate ... But we had to ask. All in all it is a beautiful place to stay & the people were soooo kind & gracious.

Booked online so we were a little nervous. When we got there, we were greeted warmly, given directions to our room through a breezeway connecting the buildings and heading to the beach. Our room was very clean, but the shower could use a little extra work. It was a walk in, not like the tub surround. King sized bed with queen sized pull out and large balcony. Bar frig, microwave and coffee maker. Tv was definitely old school. Average continental breakfast but we went to a local restaurant for breakfast and it was good. Lots of restaurants, some right across the street. 10 minutes from Grand Traverse Mall. Lots of downtown shopping. The beach is combed daily but towels, etc were not picked up and disposed of for 3 days. The water only goes up to your knees for quite a ways. Rentals at the beach for sea-doos , etc. Would have given this a 5* except for the breakfast and beach cleanup. Definitely going again though !!

Room Tip: ask for a room on the upper level and away from the elevator. Go to a grocery store for snacks and p...
