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... More

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... More

Our room was clean, we had a nice view, and the parking was a breeze. I was impressed most of all, though, by how the staff practically bend over backwards to help me with a computer situation. While on a business trip/family mini-vacation in Traverse, I had to print some invoices, etc., out on the hotel business center computer. The... More

We stay here every year during cherry festival. The rooms are beautiful and very clean. The staff was very friendly and accommodating! The location is great with it being right on the beach, close to downtown area, and surrounded by local restaurants! The breakfast was great as well, plenty of options for those who are traveling with a large family!

I visited just after Labor Day and there was a chill in the air, but I still had to go on the beach and marvel at Lake Michigan. My room was clean and the whole place was great. When traveling, I don't stay in my room much, but having a nice, clean room to relax is a must! It was... More

First off folks, I must recommend you get a room with a water view! It is $10 or $20 more and I promise you it is completely worth every penny. We stayed in October with a first floor room facing the Bay. It was a great weekend away! Upon arrival, the manager (his name has slipped my mind) greeted us... More

This was my first visit to TC. My family & I (1 another adult & 1 male teenager) spent 4 nights. It is a very family-oriented location. There were lots of families with smaller children. Many of those families seemed to be occupying the beach view rooms. My room faced the courtyard (parking lot) & was quiet. I didn't mind... More

I have stayed at at a half dozen hotels in Traverse City and, believe me, despite what the people at the Grand Beach will tell you, none of them charge a hidden resort fee. This 4% fee is added to the price quoted for your room and is nonnegotiable. It covers breakfast and internet; in other words, it covers things... More
