Grand Beach Resort Hotel

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

This is the hotel I booked but the week of my arrival I got a call that they overbooked and I would be staying at their sister resort. It was disappointing since I booked here but I think they are basically the exact hotel and it was very nice so in the end it was fine

Neighbors would try to get in the adjoining door often, also lady kept yelling "don't look at me". Upstairs they put children so they were jumping & running until late, no help from staff. Told see morning staff. No good. Will never stay there again, the worst stay we have had in a few years, and we stay in hotels 10-16 plus nights a year. We have a regular Hotel & we will not stray again. The worst 2 nights of sleep of our lives. Breakfast was good!!! Husband broke his toe slipping on sand on the concrete on the last night there so he was in pain all night....

Great accommodations! Nice room friendly staff would recommend

Very good view and very good service! But the breakfast is not good!

Nice friendly staff with clean rooms and comfortable beds. Great view of the lake

Was there for four days and three nights and had very good experience

The towel bar was loose, the pillows were not very comfy and there was some change on the floor that obviously the maid missed when cleaning.

Stayed in a upper floor beach front room and could not be any happier. Room was comfortable and had all the need necessities. Breakfast was average. Gym was average but view from my room made up for that. I always stay here when visiting Traverse city. It is right along the strip and the downtown area is a 7 min drive. Intend on staying here again soon.

Wonderful location on the beach and the rooms and amenities are very nice. Will definitely stay here again when in Traverse City.

very nice hotel right on beach with lots of water activities available

The hotel and location are nice but I waited in line over 30 minutes for a mediocre continental breakfast.

beautiful sugar sand beach and very clear water.great family setting.close to downtown

Trash in waste basket visible mold in shower sink wouldn't drain not what I expect when paying nearly $300 a night

Whenever we go to Traverse City we stay at this hotel on Grand Traverse Bay. This trip was "pre season," so it was cool, but sunny. Too cold to use the beach, but we didn;t mind as there is so much to do and see. Breakfast is generous--lots of choices, and makes the Grand Beach resort an even better value (especially off season). They are remodeling ground floor rooms and it's a very nice accommodation. We recommend it!

Clean and friendly. Breakfast needs improvement. Nice place.

Very nice. Cont. Breakfast was ok everything else very good.

The staff was awesome. Friendy and professional. The room was clean with a beautiful view. Even the coffee was good.

I'm so glad we booked this hotel. Staff was friendly, room was comfy and nicely decorated. We had a great time at the beachand the indoor pool. We had an infant and toddler and both had a great time. Hotel was close to everything and easy to find. Breakfast was included with our stay, food was alright, couldve had more options. I would stay here again & recommend it to anyone. Room was very spacious even with our baby's crib

We came with another couple for a mid-week getaway. Perfect spot for using our bikes on the surrounding bike trails.

My daughter and I were in Traverse City prom dress shopping. Our room was huge, immaculate and the beds were very comfortable. The staff was outstanding, especially the front desk clerk. Will definitely stay there again.

Chris, Thank you for choosing to stay at our hotel. From what I can surmise - aside from the less than preferable neighbors and your husbands pain, you enjoyed your stay. When we addressed your concerns the morning of your departure - you admitted to not alerting the Front Desk that you were having issues. We would have gladly talked with the guests in question immediately, were we informed and given the opportunity to. We take pride in our hotel and owning up to issues that we cannot remedy, again, when given a fair opportunity to remedy them. Finally, I sincerely apologize that you did not address your husbands pain and discomfort when we talked in the morning. Not once was this mentioned and, all things considered, we would have taken care of this as well. I apologize that your stay was not preferable due to elements outside our control. We hope that you will return to Traverse City again in the future.
