I give this hotel the highest rating possible. It was new, clean, my room was spacious and quiet. The "Up North" décor was beautiful! I would recommend this hotel to business people and/or families. I actually thought it might be a good place for a family reunion!

I don't normally stay at Best Westerns, because, frankly, many are very tired and in need of update. This property is a complete departure from that expectation. Only 9 years old, with large, clean, well appointed rooms, ceramic tile showers (who ever bathes in a hotel anyway?), a great location on the lake, excellent breakfast, and friendly staff. My bed...

We have stayed here a couple of times this year for leisure. The decor is lovely with a northwoods retreat decor. The hotel is updated and spotlessly clean. It feels like a spa stay, both times we were able to get free upgrades because we are Diamond level in the rewards program (a defininte free bonus, worth signing up for).... More

I stay in probably 30 hotels a year. The Lodge provides all the best little upgrades to everything that equate to a huge impact. The room is a bit cleaner, the lobby is a bit nicer, the amenities are superior, etc. There is a relaxing, welcoming and comfortable atmosphere about this place, plus, every staff member seems very well trained.

In this case I believe I got more than what I paid for. Beautiful hotel with amazing staff. Large variety of choices for breakfast and a very good continental breakfast! Best hotel I've stayed in for years!

The Lodge on Lake Detroit provided us with a wealth of memories of romance in just one night's stay! The open lobby is beautifully done in a north woods theme and it is open to a super view of Lake Detroit. The staff was friendly and helpful and the hotel was spotlessly clean. The suite we stayed in was warm... More

I went here for a Quilting Retreat. This facility was so wonderful! Gorgeous decor, perfect customer service, and amenities that are very rare all in one place. It was very cold but still got to enjoy a beautiful sunset. The rooms were beautiful, I wanted to spend more time in my room but I needed to quilt. Their bartender made... More

We enjoyed a weekend in the off season. It was wonderfully quiet. The rooms had just the right balance of luxury and rustic charm. The spa was great and the pool was very nice. Everything was clean and comfortable. The service was excellent. And the view from our balcony can't be beat.

Nice rooms, great shower, friendly staff, wonderful view of the Lake, excellent coffee! We stayed here in February for a family reunion during a winter Birthday. We have stayed in other hotels in DL and this will be our preferred hotel from now on.
