For over 300 dollars a night we expected more. No hand soap to wash after using the bathroom. Ice machine not working. Beds were so close together we could barely walk in between. The room service was ridiculously over priced. There were no directions like a map to show around the resort. We couldn't find the pool we had to stop and ask people. We will not be returning.

Location is close to the lake and casino but expected much more for almost $300/night. There is no refrigerator in the room, the iron didn’t work and had to request a new one, the property is very dated, in need of an upgrade for the price being charged. Staff was friendly. Restaurants were okay. Aerie was better but prices are also premium. Would recommend checking around before booking. We stayed because of a wedding but otherwise might have picked a different resort.

It was clean and with plenty of activities, I expected the room to have nicer furnishings for the price as well as their was a musty smell in the hallways.

Did not like the fact that the resort was hosting some goofy comic book character convention. Should be disclosed when making reservations. Many strange people attended this event.

disappointed

Don't stay in the older part of the hotel, it needs updates and was not that clean. Felt like a chain hotel except for the price. The bed was very comfortable.

Nothing grand about the grand traverse

save your money sleep in your car! I'm writing this at 6:17am I've been up since 3:00 the bed here is horrible! Hotel is dirty, not kept up, smells. I could go on but why bother. Stay anywhere but here.

staff pleasant rooms were poor very old and warn

too expensive for the quality of the rooms and the ammenities charge was too much..especially when they were not used. The elevators sign for the lobby was done in a hand printed black marker the heat and cooling unit were very loud had to be turned off to sleep. It is a beautiful setting and the staff was great, but not worth the price . The beds were comfortable.. our view was unfortunately above the roof.
