It is an old, not well maintain hotel. We paid $139.00 for one night. For that price, the hotel needs to be refurbished. We had no television that night until we accidently discover that you must turn an electrical switch at the door. Never saw that trick in any hotel before. They should inform their customers about it. The front... More

This is a cute cottage-type lodge that is in the best location. The Lodge had a private beach just steps away to the west and a great waterfall on the north side of the lodge (which I was worried would be too noisy while sleeping but it was not), and a bridge over the waterfall connecting to some very nice...

I actually paid $200 to NOT stay at this dump. I checked in and immediately noticed how dingy and dated the whole place was. Upon opening the door to my room, I was immediately disgusted by the overwhelming smell of mildew. It's clear they bought some new blankets for the beds and flat-screen TVs and they stopped there. I cheked... More

Pick up this hotel and move it somewhere else and I would refuse to spend the night there. The only thing Falling Waters Lodge has going for it is the location directly in Leland's Fishtown. I've been to Leland hundreds of times in my life and always wanted to stay right on the waterfall. For $200/night this hotel needs to... More

I paid for the penthouse suite was very disappointed. Leland is the gem of northern Michigan and is one of my favorite places to visit. The view from the room was great but I feel that they could do a lot to improve their experience for people who are staying. Do yourself a favor and stay at a bed and... More

Falling Waters Lodge is wonderfully located right on the river and waterfall with Fishtown and the Leland "downtown" a very easy walk across a private bridge. Great setting, and views. BUT, the hotel is relying too much on the location, and has paid very little attention to upkeep and cleanliness. We stayed in several hotels on a 3 week driving... More

Stayed at the hotel for work purposes. We pushed a barge into the local marina and needed a place to sleep for the night. The locals recommended Falling Waters. The staff was good and gave us a nice work rate on a suite. They aren't the most up to date but perfect for what we needed. I plan on visiting... More

The furniture is old and the room we stayed in was dirty. We found hair in the bed, dust on the furniture, hair and dirty sheets in the pull out bed,old soap in the shower and a cell phone from a previous tenant on the carpet. When I complained to the owner, he said, "That room is clean. I inspected... More

We had been to Falling Waters several times and overlooked the filthy conditions, poor service, because they were pet friendly. The restaurants are walking distance, so are the shops and the beach. Now they are no longer pet friendly. Strike three. We're out.

Love, Love, Love, Leland. Unfortunately this facility is a black eye in a wonderful community. The rooms are terribly dirty, furniture is old, the list goes on. Until the owner makes some serious improvements.. stay someplace else...even your car.
