    Perfect place for a Traverse City getaway!!!

    Check in was so easy and all of the staff were courteous and helpful. The room was very clean and had a “freshness” as soon as I walked through the threshold. I definitely would stay here again without a doubt!

    The rooms are beautiful! From the aesthetics to cleanliness, the beach feel makes you really un-stress. The gorgeous bay view is breathtaking!!!

    Great location! Would stay again!

    We had a wonderful stay at the Baywatch Resort. We would happily stay here again! It was a beautiful, like-new resort. We had a room with a fantastic soaking tub and used it every night. Two concerns: first, the pillows are REALLY firm. We are feather pillow users and had a terrible time getting comfortable with the pillow. Maybe having both firm and softer pillows on the beds would improve the stay a bit. Also, because of COVID restrictions, housekeeping didn't enter our room during our stay. That was fine with us, but the wood floors got a little dirty over a 4 night stay. Having a broom, or Swiffer type duster in the room would have helped with this. Overall, the stay was amazing. The folks at the front desk were polite, thoughtful and worked hard to be accommodating given the restrictions in place. We would happily visit again!

    fall color trip

    The room and facilities were just built. Everything was clean. The nice thing is when I checked in they gave me the steps they completed to clean the room I reserved. It made me understand they took the covid cleaness seriously.

    A few feet from the beach and the bay. The Baywatch was super clean. Our room felt brand new.

    Sheets were dirty. Had to change ourselves in the middle of the night. Did eventually get part of our stay refunded after a lot of effort on our part. Great views and nice looking hotel overall.

    Better for day visit and enjoying the beach.

    Overnight stay before visiting my friend. The room was clean but the hard hard floors were less than cozy. Got a room with a soaking tub. The tub is not built in so it was too loud to run while wstching television. It was also directly across from the lobby so guest traffic was noticable in the morning.
