Our stay at the Alpine Lodge was very comfortable. The room was tired but clean and the breakfast was very good. Big plate of scrambled eggs and homemade raisin bread. It was very off season so the whole place was quiet. I liked the fact that the dog stayed free. There was a big grassed area behind the lodge that... More

The management made sure we had everything we needed for our retreat. We were the first retreat since the hotel had new owners. We have on member who is Gluten Free and they made sure her food was prepared separate and not cross contaminated in the kitchen.

Came for Daddy Daughter dance and stressed here. Hotel is nice the money but not 4-Star. Beds are comfy with nice pillows. Bathrooms are outdated and water temps were irregularly hot then cold. Dog poop in the parking lot and puke uncleaned by the back door. Steak dinner at restaurant was VERY good and pizza was best I've had in... More

Restaurant, bar, and wood fired pizza, pool, hot tub and sauna all under one roof. Great for snowmobiling, good access to trails and no need to leave when you get back. Not a Hilton but has character.

My wife and I were looking at places to stay in Gaylord and came upon an advertisement for the Alpine Lodge. Don't let the word LODGE mislead you, it is nothing more then a Motel 6 with an Alpine Lodge sign out in front of it. I have slept on rocks that were more comfortable then these beds and the...

Please call me asap! I need to make certain this room has been removed from service and I will certainly refund you! No one should ever find themselves in a room like that, please call me so that I can be sure the matter has been corrected. Just call the front desk and ask for John. More

I start this out with "To all Corporate Lodging Members, run from this place. Do not even try to stay here". On Friday the 27th of February I called this establishment to reserve a room for three nights. I informed them as follows..... I need a room for three nights. Two adults, two dogs and I need truck parking and... More

As of today CLC has stiffed me for $3,234.60. That means I have provided over 100 discounted room nights totally free. You walked out before the clerk could even explain why she was being cautious with your special requests. We had other people lined up to pay full price for the room, but they were going to give it to... More

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
