Grand Beach Resort Hotel
Ranked #15 of 40 Hotels in Traverse City
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 May 2014

We have been coming to the Grand Beach for a "boaters reunion" every year for at least 10 years. We have never been disappointed. In my opinion, the rooms are perfect. The beds are extremely comfortable. We always get a bay side room so we have a view of the water. I don't care what time of the year it is, I enjoy the view. There is a couch in the room, a small table, a refrigerator, and coffee pot. The breakfast is also very nice.
The staff is very friendly and helpful. The TV in our room should be replaced, but other than that I have never had a complaint in all of the years we have been going there. How nice it is to go to a hotel and know you will not be disappointed.

Our room was exactly as expected per the photos, which was great. The accommodations were very nice-bed comfortable, plenty of room-the suite was large!, balcony was nice, the view was great, and the room was quiet. The front desk staff was nice and the last hour of the pool hours is 'adults only' which was a nice surprise. Free coffee 24/7, that was great. The location of the resort is right near downtown and has plenty of restaurants nearby. The housekeeping staff did a very nice job. My one complaint is that the housekeeping staff was a bit noisy as they were cleaning rooms-it woke me up every day of stay. We also found it a little difficult to find a parking spot. Overall, a great stay and it was very affordable and I would definitely stay again.

This hotel was very nice, clean, and relaxing. The continental breakfast offered a lot of variety from cereal to waffles to bagels and oatmeal. I did not get to use the pool, but it looked nice. I would love to go back soon.

As others have noted, the facilities are a bit dated and worn, but we enjoyed the spacious room, and especially the beach view and balcony, even though the temperatures during our stay reached sub-zero Fahrenheit. As smokers, it was nice to be able to step out briefly for a smoke without having to trudge downstairs to get outside.

The service staff was polite and helpful, the maids were considerate and efficient, the beds were comfortable and the room quiet and clean. We got a good deal on the room after Hotels.com screwed up our reservation at another resort, but it wasn't the cheapest deal in town. That was made up for by the well-maintained pool and hot tub, though there is no dressing room or shower.

In general, a decent middle-upper lodging with perks and substantially above the threshold of good enough. Dunno what it'd be like in summer, but over the Xmas holiday it was a great place to retreat after an evening with the relatives.

This resort is excellent and it has a sister resort called The Sugar Beach which is about a half a block from Grand Beach. They both have a big sandy beach and the rooms are very nice. The breakfast room is also very good. We have stayed here for about 15 years and will not go any where else. The water front rooms are the best.

Room Tip: The beach front rooms are very nice if you like to see the water instead of the highway

My husband and I were pointed in the direction of the Grand Beach after the Cherry Hotel was all booked up. The manager was very friendly - 2 handshakes in fact and personable..
The room was right on the beach which was beautiful despite the poor weather.
You can tell that it is an older hotel, but the bathroom is up to date. It doesn't have a flat screen, but that isn't a big deal for me. It also included breakfast which was pretty typical of a hotel continental breakfast. There is a pool, a hot tub and a game room as well.
The only downside was the parking. It is pretty limited, but they were accommodating and let us park in the reserved parking.

Stayed here with three kids. Had good size room that faced the beach. The place is pretty dated, but I knew that from previous reviews. The service at the front desk is extremely limited. We had to go there each time we needed a beach towel (which would be every day). The breakfast was terrible. Crowded and just not good food. We went to downtown T.C. instead and were very glad we did. Beds were ok. Bathroom was dark and had a weird setup. Will definitely look elsewhere the next time we visit T.C.
