Nice hotel right on lake beautiful lake Huron. The small Beach area this year is well maintained and we were pleased and surprised by the beach bar food/drink credit we got each day. Entertainment was nice and most of the staff were nice too. The room was a bit dated and could of used some updates. Overall it was a nice time and we will visit again.

nice hotel

Pros: Beach right outside, very very close to downtown. And the "free" breakfast options were great.
Cons: Beach chairs should be handed out to hotel guess only. The beach is open to the public due to the bar outside.
Location: Love downtown East Tawas.
Nice that it is on the water and the breakfast was free.

Tawas Bay Beach Resort Disappointing

Pros: Air conditioner worked.
Cons: Everything.
Overpriced. Inexperienced restaurant waiter service, limited restaurant menu. I had posted a "Do Not Disturb sign on door the first day, but on the second day I asked for maid service and left a note asking the maid not to open the bathroom door and to put clean bathroom linens on the bed; she did that but did not even make the bed. May flies were everywhere, some even were found in the sink in the morning (I don't know how they got into the room). An unexplained and unjustified $20 charge made the first day I was there was found on my final bill. Drain in bathtub did not stop water from draining out during bath. Instructions for using coffee maker in room were inadequate and it did not drip the water into the pot.
