We enjoyed our stay. The staff was friendly and helpful, the lodge was attractive and clean. We are night birds and as so, figured we missed the free breakfast. Not so, although the only guests in the dining room we were served up with a nice repast and enjoyed chatting with the staff. I don't recall if they had in-room... More

Awful, awful nightlife. As an entertainment professional, their offerings are simply disgraceful. I'm not sure who EXP is, however their weekend bar is extremely overpriced for the offerings in place. Someone tell management that this is Gaylord, not Detroit. I've had a multiple better experiences in the sadly understated Saginaw.

Last we knew you were jamming it out on our lobby piano?? I would certainly appreciate the courtesy of a phone call to at least help me understand what went wrong? I read and follow up on every review, but I am stumped on this one. More

This hotel was absolutely awful! My family all booked rooms here for the weekend of my wedding and everything was wrong. They were RUDE, wrong amounts charged, rooms were filthy. My husband and I checked into our room and they gave us one that someone was already in! When we went back to the front desk they told us they... More

we recently met other family members, some from California, and needed several rooms. The Alpine Lodge caught the groups interest with convenient location to sights of interest, short walk to farmers market and historic oldtown shopping. Our group varied in ages from retired seniors to young kids ages 4-9 and a dog. we booked and stayed 4 nights. Our rooms... More

I just spent the night at this motel and will never give them my business again. The desk clerk gave me "a very nice first floor room" which cost me $117 for the night which I thought was high but since it was really nice, OK. This "very nice" room smelled like a locker room, had no hand towels, no... More

My husband and I stayed here on our way to Mackinac Island. The staff was friendly when we got there. Was glad to find a room, until we got into it. 1st the door chain was missing, the beds where hard. The smell was very strong of old smoke and dirty. I went to wash my face and brown water... More

First off, when we got to the hotel, it was 10 minutes before check-in. We were told we had to wait until 3:00...really? In the meantime, another person came in 2 minutes after us and was allowed to check in early. We had made reservations 2 weeks prior to our arrival and when we were finally allowed to check in,...

Each year we look forward to our annual Golfing/Shopping holiday to Gaylord and area. We always stay at the Alpine Lodge in Gaylord. This year was no exception. I can honestly say it is like going home. We always request and get poolside rooms. We have easy access to the pool and the most wonderful hot tub. The new owner... More

We just spent the weekend at the Alpine Lodge in Gaylord and what a fabulous hotel! Nice, clean, comfortable rooms. The bed was so comfortable I didn't want to leave it. We had a poolside room and the pool area was a great place to hang-out with the family. There is a quiet period at night so you can get... More
