“Not a Lodge!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2005

My friend and I were the recipients of a "free" one night stay at the Alpine Lodge in Collingwood the end of October 2004. The offer was made by Sun Ski Vacations as part of their promotional vacation package. The Alpine Lodge was one of their accomodations.

The place was clean enough but was furnished in a minimalist fashion and in fact is a Motel not a Lodge. A Motel is an off the road quick night sleep with no extras and this is what the Alpine Lodge offers. In all fairness, the Alpine Lodge does not pretend to be what it isn't, but the Sun Ski Vacations have still not reimbursed me for the cost of the overnight stay.

The restaurant food is good and the staff friendly enough but a Lodge it is Not.

The reviews speak for themselves so ... anyone invited to stay at the Alpine Lodge should beware of the company inviting you. We found the company to be unprofessional and not at all "upfront". Five months after their presentation we have yet to receive the promised "incentive" gift. Phonecalls receive a runaround ... and no one wants to give either their name or the name of a superior - and that action (or lack of it) speaks for itself.

I must say that I am truly sorry for dealing with the time share company that most of these reviews are talking about. When this comapny would call people and tell them that they won a free stay at a 5 star resort and then when they would show up at my motel they felt that they where lied to and I cant blame then at all for being angry I would be two for I am not a 5 star resort
What I am is a clean motel with an outdoor heated pool 86 degrees with tenis courts and nice outdoor fire pit with picnic tables and bbqs it is exelant for
Inexpensive famley getaways. When I was dealing with the time share co I had no Idea that the timeshare company where cockroaches and I will never use them again!

This lodge is used by a company offering free getaways, in exchange for sitting through a 90 minute presentation. It is NOT worth it!!

We stayed at Alpine Lodge in Collingwood last weekend based on their #1 rating on travel advisor. We were extremely dissappointed the rooms were very small and they were not very clean. It is a little dumpy motel. What a let down. We will never stay there again.
