Pellston is a remote regional airport which is located about 30 miles north of Boyne Falls which was our final destination. We arrived in Pellston late so decided to spend the night at their local motel/hotel/lodge. Unfortunately, they had an electrical storm that night before we arrived and knocked out their TV and internet. I was assured the wi-fi was... More

Pellston Lodge I found to be very clean and neat and welcoming. The staff was very accommodating and the breakfast was a nice extra. It was a great stopping off point after a lovely stay at Mission Point Resort on Mackinac Island.

I am sorry that you feel you have been wronged but, as I told you on the phone all you have to do is email or fax the receipt that you say you have to us and we take care of this matter. Regrettably, calling the hotel and berating my staff and writing nasty reviews will not resolve the matter. More

I saw some pretty mixed reviews, so I was pleasantly surprised to find the price right (on a holiday weekend, no less), good breakfast (just missed having fresh fruit), and a nice clean room with decent linens. Pool looked good too, but I forgot my swimsuit. Staff was pleasant and helpful - no complaints at all, and I would definitely... More

My husband and I stay August 13-16, 2014. The front desk was very nice and professional. The room was clean and spacious. The bed was comfortable. The carpeting had stains and was in need of replacing. We mentioned this to the manager at the front desk, she said the carpeting has been ordered, and should be installed within the next... More

My husband and I just returned from a 4-night stay at this hotel. We had the best time, largely due to the relaxation and comfort we experienced. Our daughter is staying at the nearby University of Michigan Biological Station for the summer. This was the perfect spot for us to stay while visiting her for a few days. I found... More

The bed was comfortable, The fan in the bathroom did not work, good water pressure in the shower. The rear safety door did not lock on its own without assistance. The fire door was missing between the lobby and the hallway between the rooms. The pool circulating system was not operating. The water did look clean. Carpeting in the Lobby... More

I am very sorry that you had mixed reviews about the Lodge. You will be happy to know that the hallway carpet has been replaced. The pool circulating pump does not aggressively move the water so, some people think its not working but it actually does a great job, as you noticed the water is always very clean. I do... More

It is a very clean facility. Stayed because it is just in front of the airport where I need to fly the next day. The hospitality of the staff is astounding. If only you have a restaurant it will be perfect. But thank you for everything.

Friendly staff and clean facility. The room was pretty basic but overall good experience and quiet location. Pool room had adult swim hours from 10:00 pm to midnight which was considerate. Convenient location from Petoskey to Macinac

Thank you. Our location is one of the many things going for us. We are in the middle of all the Northern Michigan attractions but, as you pointed out, it's quiet here. A big plus for vacationers looking for peace. More
