Stayed 1 night. Front desk staff wonderful. Breakfast simple but good. Rooms clean but not updated since being built over 50 years ago, with a couple of exceptions. Musty smell in room-just opened windows for a short tome and odor was gone. Nice view of Round Lake on the rooms that face south. Reasonably priced for the area and and... More

Stayed one night due to sports event nearby. This is a throwback motel and they must charge extra for added benefit of time travel. Not one update with exception of carpet since 70s. Bedspreads, blue and pink tile, an actual metal door key, push button lights, panel and wood everywhere. Rough wood in bathroom cabinets and desk/vanity. Needs more lighting... More

We stopped at the Lodge at Charlevoix last week. The hotel we really wanted was full and this was nearby so we stopped. It was advertised in some tourist literature as being the oldest hotel in Charlevoix, the price was right so we thought we would take a chance. Service was friendly and there was even some appeal to the... More

We booked a room here last minute because it was the only place within walking distance to town that had vacancies. I want to be fair so here goes. Location is great! Check in was pleasant and the man behind the desk couldn't have been friendlier. It is an older place that seems like hasn't been updated since it was... More

We booked a room at the Lodge on a last minute weekend trip to Charlevoix. It was important to us to be within walking distance of downtown. This hotel exceeded my expectations, which were admittedly not very high. The staff was nice, the location was great, the room was clean, and the hotel itself is just plain old retro cool.... More

We stayed at the Lodge on the 4th of July after booking by phone. This was a fun trip, and the Lodge was a unique place to stay. We were greeted at the check-in desk by the same man with whom I'd made the reservation, and I was remembered and greeted warmly. The room was quaintly old-fashioned, with colored tile... More

Location is the best asset. It's okay for what it is, but what it is is an old motel that lacks amenities and has permanent stains all over carpet. Staff is friendly, so no complaints there, but they're working with a subpar product in the world of lodging. If you are looking for a roof over your head in downtown... More

The Lodge could use some updates, but was clean and perfect for what we needed it for, a place to sleep. Parking was ample, the room was spacious (if a bit dark and dated), and the bed wasn't the most comfy, but as overnight guests for a wedding the location and price were spot on! Another hotel in town made... More

I mainly chose this hotel because I found it on a pet-friendly website and we were traveling with our little chihuahua. It is an older hotel, but it seemed clean and the staff was very friendly. The price was good and it was close to downtown. I would stay here again when in the area.

Stayed one night in Charlevoix at this retro motel in great downtown location. Room paneling & colorful bath fixtures & tile reminded me of grandma's Detroit home in the '60s. Very nice informative staff and value priced at $95/night. Spend a comfortable night not a fortune in walking distance to the yacht basin, main streets & shops in Charlevoix.
