This hotel surpassed my expectations, the highlands room was very nice (I think they have taller ceilings than most hotels, it seemed more open) the bathroom was really large and the tub was really long which made it nice to relax in. There was a TV in the mirror of the bathroom. The pool is open 24 hours and it was really nice to be able to let the kids swim and we were able to relax in the hot tub later as well. The beach is not very big but I thought it was really nice, it is literally steps away so we visited the beach 5 times in our 1 night stay. Such a pretty view and ocean sounds. If you get a room on the opposite side you have an amazing view with a balcony. The breakfast wasn’t awesome, I’ve had a little better even during COVID. When we got there it was only pre packaged cereal, regular milk and some muffins, boiled eggs. It wasn’t really worth going down there. Also to be nit picky the front desk wasn’t overly friendly, and their system was down both times we went down there. But overall I was really happy we stayed there!

Beautiful hotel, great beach front, we had a beautiful room. We definitely wil be back next year!

I felt unwelcome as I came in. I get that people have rough days but I was having one too and I was paying to be here, they were being paid to be here.

The staff very knowledgeable and engaged in conversation loved the convenience of the shuttle to down town

Hotel is perfect and has everything you need. The pool and hot tub are open 24/7, they have hot coffee always available and the service is impeccable! The Mackinac room is great!

Hotel close to the overlooking the Bay. Old but clean and comfortable.

This was a beautiful hotel. Wonderful and helpful staff. We had the best view. Hotel has a complimentary shuttle, which was a nice bonus.

It was clean and comfortable. The staff were nice.

Loved our stay here. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Great hotel and location. Awesome beach and outdoor pool set up.

Such a great value in the Winter! Will be returning again January of 2016!

Clean rooms, with great view. Close to town and casino. Free breakfast in am. Could not check in before 3 pm was only negative I could say. Otherwise great hotel and I will be back.

Great staff supper friendly, room was ready and clean. Bomb fire by the water was real nice to.

This is suppose to be a nice hotel. On the East Bay. We stayed in TC last year on the other side of the road, and decided to "upgrade" this year for the Cherry Festival and Air Show and booked a 2 bed on the 5th (highest floor), Bay side. The room was the shape of shoe box, with nothing special. We paid 1/2 of our Mortgage payment for our 2 nights. Best point: the shuttle that drove us downtown for the fireworks and the next day for the Air Show and picked us up and brought us back. No parking worries with 400,000 estimated to be at the events. Worst moments: "Breakfast Buffet". What we got for "food" was what I'd expect at a "cheap" accommodation..."make your own waffle", some plastic looking eyes, sausage patties, oatmeal, cereal, toast, bagels, danish. The next day we skipped the "free" breakfast went somewhere and got some real food. They have an indoor and outdoor pool we could never use as they were both overrun with kids, even though there was a beach for them to play on and build sandcastles. The whirlpool was also child-packed. Why do children need a hot tub and what were they doing in there? Last negative comment: My partner smokes. He's a Veteran. I think they ALL smoked. I understand the hotel to be "smoke free", but at other such hotels we have stayed at, they have a "designated smoking area" with some dignity. CTI, did not. A narrow corridor with no place to sit behind some bushes was what they had. We stayed at the "Fun Place" across the street on US 31 last year. Their "Smoking Area" was under a Gazebo, by the street, with sitting area, so were could watch the Porsche's zipping up and down US 31 for the Porsche Festival, and we could even bring some snacks and drinks out there. It was Great! We relaxed and enjoyed the view. Next time we visit and stay at TC, we'll skip the "view" for a more enjoyable stay.

Thank you for your stay and kind review. We are glad that you had an overall good experience with us. The off water studios are different with the TV mirror and rainfall showers. As for the breakfast, we also have plated hot items available for our guest, and we are always looking for different options when they become available to us. I am sorry that the front desk staff was not that friendly, that is very uncommon for us. I will work with my staff to make sure the next time you are here you have the best customer service we are known for. Best, Arrow Trudeau Assistant General Manager

Thank you for your stay and your time in writing a review. I'm terribly sorry for the poor interactions you had with our team. That's extremely uncommon for anyone to feel unwelcome with our staff, and I will do a better job of working with my team to ensure that doesn't happen. Thank you and have a nice day!
