It was absolutely horrible that we could only stay a couple nights. Had to return to work. Service was great. Price was reasonable. Close to SBD which was our main reason for the trip. Only complaint I had was I didn't notice the biscuits and gravy till the second morning. If you've coming from the north watch closely for the... More

We are glad you were happy with your stay. Returning to work is always a problem isn't it? We do try to have a 'special' item on the breakfast every weekend. You just never know what it will be. Hopefully you enjoyed your trip to Sleeping Bear Dunes. It really is one of the most beautiful places on earth. We'd... More

We look forward to the Sleighbell Victorian Christmas weekend in Manistee Michigan because that is the time of year when our family and friends gather at the Alpine Lodge for the first full weekend in Dec. The Lodge Is the perfect place to stay. The owners are awesome people that make you feel right at home.

We have the opportunity to stay at the Alpine Motor Lodge a few times a year. We like the facility and use is as our base for the annual weekends of fishing in the Onekma & Brethren, Michigan area every summer and fall. The rooms are clean, have AC & a televisions.

Apparently there are ''remodeled rooms" at this place. We did NOT get one. Maybe the other reviewers did. Sinks, tub, shower doors, and room door, were all ancient dark green. We stayed one night and I didn't take a shower. The plastic shower door tracks were filthy and it was just dark and creepy in the shower, I've never seen... More

We are very sorry you didn't enjoy your stay with us. The motel was built in 1972 and yes, the bathroom fixtures are either harvest gold or olive green. (I can't believe you've never seen them before!) The green does make the bathrooms seem dark which is one of the reasons why we are slowly getting away from them. We... More

We stayed one night at this motel. The owners were very friendly. They had a very nice outdoor swimming pool. They even had a handicapped accessible pool lift. The main problems with the room was that the table in the room had beverage rings that were a bit sticky indicating that the table had not been wiped. Everything in the... More

Needed overnight accommodations to make an early morning engagement nearby. We received a friendly welcome even though arriving late. Our room was spacious. We were comfortable. It was quiet. No, the furnishings and décor were not the latest fashion, but the rate reflects this. More importantly to us was that room was neat and clean, and we were treated as... More

We were very pleased to find this lovely, extremely well-kept and user friendly hotel tucked away in this hills of upstate Michigan. Close to Bear Lake and just a jog from Interlochen Art Academy; it was truly a delight to stay there. Although not the newest of amenities, the hotel was quiet, spacious and clean. The rooms were well planned... More

This motel is in a great location, and it's very clean. It's not the newest thing in the world, but they've done a nice job keeping it clean and reasonably priced. We'd definately stay there again. The breakfast wasn't great for anyone gluten free, but there's always room for improvement.
