I read all of the bad reviews and was hesitant about staying here but I am so glad we did. We stayed in the penthouse. It was clean, the beds were comfortable. Great location to downtown Leland. When you asked for something the staff took care of it immediately, they were very friendly. When we were in our room you... More

Falling Waters is in a fantastic location in the heart of Leland, steps from Lake Michigan. Unfortunately the rooms are old and tired, and the carpet felt really dirty. There is tons of potential in this place - our room had a great set up with a queen bed downstairs and a queen + pullout in the loft, (although the... More

We love staying at Falling Waters because of its location right by the falls. It's so nice to sit on the balcony and watch the falls and look across to Fishtown. There have been some nice improvements since we stayed a couple years ago. We stayed in a room on the lower level which has been updated very nicely. Lovely... More

The rooms all seem to have a wonderful view of the falls and Fishtown. Pleasant and clean with places to sit on the deck. They have a refrigerator is each room. There is also danish and coffee in the morning.

This was our second time visiting Leland and staying at the Falling waters lodge. We brought my husband this time though. He and the kids love walking to the bait shop and coming back to fish right out front of room #104.... Beach right out a sandy path out back and wonderful restaurants and shoppping a stone's throw away. The... More

For the price, this was a brilliant place to spend the night. The rooms were comfortable and clean with the benefits of being close to local restaurants and shops. Would highly recommend this motel to anybody. The reception was also incredibly friendly and there was plenty of space for parking the car.

We stayed last night in #201, standard 2-queen bedroom, very clean and fresh---updated recently, 2 sinks, one outside bath. Cooper, who is very accommodating, is now the manager, replacing his crusty 87-year grandfather Riley. Everything was perfect.

Older hotel right at the dam and over looking Fishtown an old fishing village with shanties made into gift shops. Can fish from lower balcony, rooms were clean and beds were comfortable. I would stay there again, good times.

don't stay at this hotel, it smells and its gross. Never going to stay here again, I ended up with a gross case of ring worm after my visit here. Our room was so nasty, the vertical blinds were missing a few panels and it smelled so bad. We had to drink a lot just to fall asleep. Don't ever... More

Peacefully fall asleep to the sound of water rushing from the dam. During fall watch salmon spawning while sitting on the deck watching the fishing boats leave and return. Cross the quaint bridge to get to fish town and shopping. Walk to fantastic restaurants. Falling water is so romantic. Yes, it is damp from the dam, yep the keepers are... More
