We stayed one night at this hotel, and had a room with a view of water. Turned out it was right on the beach, and a beautiful view. Room looked like it had been recently renovated. Breakfast was included, and was very good. It was in a great location, and would stay there again!!

Great hotel and location, friendly staff, beautiful beach - walked out of first floor room onto patio and beach. Breakfast was good - make your own waffles ! In-room refrigerator, microwave & coffeemaker are always a great bonus !

I was visiting TC with a friend and we stayed at Sugar Beach for 1 of the nights. It was affordable and clean, it worked for us for what we needed for just 1 night. We were there in the off season but it's nice that it's right on the water.

Good hotel. Excellent sandy beach. Overall, well maintained. Excellent, friendly staff - very helpful. Breakfast was good but would be nice to have a hot protein (egg, meat etc.).

I sent this e-mail and never received a response: Hi, We had a recent stay@ Sugar Beach on 4-13-15. I was surprised by the road construction. The hotel construction and lack of notification was a major disappointment. The room itself had shredded carpeting. The elevator and hallways were both dirty with inexcusable paint parts etc. not vacuumed. The stairways were...

My husband and I stayed the weekend, because it was a gift to us for our 30th anniversary. We were very disappointed when we walked in the room. Nothing spectacular. No view, that was a HUGE disappointment! For $168.00 a night there should be a view and not of the parking lot! There are 2 TV's in the room, the...

Our third stay at this hotel since they opened. The room we had was huge with a great view of the lake. Beds were very comfortable, room was very clean and the staff had made an elephant out of towels that was sitting on the bed when we arrived!

Comfortable rooms, great pool, awesome beach views (can't wait to come back in the summer). Private decks that overlook the water. Nice continental breakfast included. Walls are thin, staff strict on noise levels.

Called and made a reservation for a week.. Get my confirmation back and it was only for a day, email back and without any kind words or apologies the reservation is changed. Walked into the entry no one around then a young lady walks out does not say a word or greeting ... then without looking up says "last name!"...
