Stayed 3 nights and this time we were on the third floor where the view was even better than from the 2nd floor. The room was in excellent condition and service was very good.

We spent one night at Crooked River Lodge on our way further North. The lodge is very clean and the room was great (King Suite). It is within walking distance to town which we liked. The bed was extremely comfortable. The breakfast is the typical toast, bagels, etc found at many chain hotels but does the job. There are balconies... More

As a business owner myself for over 20 year, and in the customer service industry for 20+ years, we were mortified at the unprofessionalism and unexperienced customer service skills that the owner and her son possess, in which is none at all. She does not know how to approach problems and her son who seems to be in his 20's,... More

Spent 3 nights as we were in the area for a family wedding. In total with family 4 rooms were rented. Without even asking we all ended up on the same floor and only a few rooms apart. The rooms were large and clean and we enjoyed the balcony as well. They were very accomodating when we asked for more... More

The lodge was clean, pretty, with large rooms. Loved the lobby and patio. Nice central location for that section of "up north" michigan. I'd definetly stay there again. Didn't find the people behind the desk overly friendly, however they weren't rude either.

This hotel is nice and clean. They do have pets and children that live or stay there. They are all friendly though. The owner is on site. It is great to support a local business owner in this economy. They are always accommodating. It has a great location with awesome restaurants in the vicinity.

We came up here for a weekend to buy a car, and stayed at the Crooked River Lodge and loved it! The employees were so nice and willing to help whenever you needed. Any questions we had they were happy to answer. Also, we loved the turtle they had! They had a huge cage for him, and they took great... More

I and my friends rented three rooms for one evening, and we all enjoyed our stay very much. The rooms were very large and accomodating, we liked that we had a livingroom, bedroom, and all of the rooms had an outside balcony. The pool is at one end, and the rooms are at the other, affording quiet and privacy. The... More
