My wife and I randomly ended up at the Alpine Lodge while escaping a blizzard...What a pleasant surprise!! The front desk staff were excellent and efficient finding us a room during an extremely busy time at the front desk... checking in a wrestling tournament.. The room was clean, spacious and comfortable. The pool area was spacious and fun for young... More

Thank you for taking the time to acknowledge my manager. She suffers tremendous attack in the online world and I know that it does affect her in-spite of her efforts to shake it off. We print and post reviews to keep the entire staff alert and responsive to the feedback. However, some are difficult to post when they become reminders... More

You have to believe that somewhere in these reviews lies the truth. Here's my perspective: I organize a fairly large golf group. We have been golfing together for 18 years - 15 of those in the Gaylord, Michigan - Golf Mecca region. All told, we've used 3 different properties for lodging. Typically, I bring 60 golfers to the area for... More

There is an on going criminal prosecution for fraud with this group and the employee referenced. The group booked thousands of dollars of golf through the referenced employee using my accounts and never paid. The truth is that I do not fear black mail and I will continue to prosecute thieves. We are a small family run business and we... More

Per their website's instructions I called to book my reservation directly with them so they would honor the coupon on their website. When I checked in a few days later neither of the two desk clerks knew how to process a coupon (they were both new, so I don't hold it against them). They tried to find a manager to... More

I am sorry about the confusion with your discounts. However, I never altered the website to manipulate you. Moreover, the website has not been changed in years. It was created by the previous ownership and we have been very liberal in accepting the coupons while we work to build new websites that we can control. Please feel free to call... More

I came and enjoyed a family get together over the weekend. The staff is very friendly eespecially Sonya and Tiffany. Bernice and Sue are really kind. The pizzas are the best. I love how big the atrium is you can have a good ole time in there. They have a pool hot tub and sauna as well as pool tables... More

We are a small close knit group and we truly need the encouragement. Everyday hurting, angry, and bitter people walk through our doors. It is our privilege to bring smiles and comfort to them. But, the truth is that it is tiring work that wears on us. We will honor your kindness and continue to bless anyone that passes through... More

We stayed here while we snowmobiled out on the trails in and around Gaylord. Made a good place to crash at the end of a fun day. Breakfast was good. Hot tub could have been a little warmer. Beds could be a little softer. In room fridge and freezer was awesome!! Nothing major to complain about. It's nothing fancy but... More

Thank you for taking the time to share. Please monitor our website for exciting new themes, logos, and amenities that we are launching. We are planning new foam mattresses, steam showers and whirlpool tubs to offer much more private experiences. It is always frustrating to see the kids overuse and cool the hot tub. So, we are working up some... More

The front desk staff was nice enough. My husband and I chose this hot because they allowed pets. The first thing I noticed in the room was it was hard to find an outlet to charge my cell phone and when I did find one it diddnt work. We had a king size bed that had only two pillows and... More

The coffee pot parts are disposable and new ones are provided inside each of the packets next to the coffee pot. This helps ensure clean and sanitary conditions for every guest. The plugs work if you turn on the light switch by the door. Additionally, you can turn off the lamps if you wish to leave the light switch on... More

I will never be giving my hard earned money to this very poorly ran establishment again. From the moment we walked through the door, everyone was rude and very unaccomodating. I was wandering around with a cup of coffee in my hand checking the place out and one of the staff members attacked me and said "the pop isn't free... More

You were nowhere to be found after sending my daughter back from the pool weeping and crying. I made considerable effort to locate you after the attack on my daughter and her friends who were paying guests that did not deserve your wrath. Then the parents of my daughters friends left their breakfast and vacation to help prepare more food... More

I am not sure how your rate got mixed up, but your always welcome to call me. I can assure you that the staff made tremendous effort to shovel snow, but the thaw and freeze conditions did create a snow pack that we could not remove until vehicles were moved away from the building. We have chiseled the pack up... More

Last minute trip to go snowmobiling was perfect. Our dog was allowed and we were given a room that had a door leading outside, perfect for our pup. Also perfect for pulling the snowmobile right up to the door! Hotel staff and other guests were very friendly. After deciding to stay in to eat because of the cold we went... More

Hotel is upgrading its accommodations. Sonya at the front desk is helpful and courteous. Bernice at EXP was very friendly and served up some awesome tasting chili and the chicken wings were hot and spicy. Located next door to a fabulous grocery store to purchase needed groceries. Recommend staying here when passing through the great state of Michigan.
