2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

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.

We have stayed at Grand Beach several times very nice place nice location friendly staff.

However, they leave out some standards that other hotels nail consistently. Mostly small things such as no room service, no local area guide, no directory for the TV, and very spotty WiFi. Also, there was a cleanliness issue that was dealt with. They handled it well and explained that they were short on cleaning staff and had a full house to boot. Though the room was comfortable, staff was friendly, and the views were breathtaking. My experience was pretty good and I would likely go again given the chance.
