4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2013

Nice friendly clean place, good location in town by the casino and the restaurant across the street was good too. I judge a place by the bathrooms and they were clean. I loved the taxidermy too. Breakfast was was fantastic too!

Very nice place! Front desk girl was very friendly and courteous. Room was large, clean, and comfortable. The hallways are the widest of any place we've seen,making getting a luggage cart down the hall or pushing someone in a wheelchair very easy. The free breakfast was fantastic! There are plenty of tables to accommodate quite a few people. There was one young lady that kept the breakfast items, and tables, very clean, as well as take care of the small convenience store/gas station. We loved the large locally made bagels. This lodge is located only several miles from Munising, which has many hiking trails near Lake Superior. We love this area!

We had spent the day hiking in pictured rocks. Did a fairly decent hike 9.6 miles, had gone on the glass bottom boat tour and went to check in. It was surprisingly really nice. Rooms were clean and neat, hot tub was awesome. Unfortunately internet had been out due to an electrical storm two days prior to our arrival. Staff was very friendly and helpful. I liked that they had a store that had a nice stock of supplies. Definitely would stay here again

I took the wife up to see the Pictured Rocks for her birthday.I was a bit concerned about
the lodge but I was pleasantly surprised with the accomodations & friendly helpful staff.
room was spotless...quite...comfortable...good selection of channels on tv..$5 promo
for next door casino.Breakfast was ok, coffee was wonderful, there could be hot breakfast
sandwiches or breakfast meat added, but there were choices.Easy walk to casino..and
good food at casino. They have a gas station & mini-store right there attached to lodge.
I will stay there again when in the area. Sauna very nice too! Keep up the good job!!!!

We and another couple stayed one night. The hotel appears to have been totally upgraded and clean.
The continental in the am had quite an array of offerings. The casino is next door should you so desire.
The staff were very accommodating in answering our many question on what sights to see in the area.
We ate at casino so no other recommendation on where to eat. We did not use the pool. The lodge has a mini
Store on sight but did not purchase anything so cannot comment on its products or prices.

Our family stayed here about 3 1/2 weeks ago.Although the staff seemed nice the small amount that we dealt with them, our room was not clean at all. It very obviously had been used and not cleaned before us. The bed had the throw pillows put in 2 areas in the room and the two bed pillows had shoulder indents on them,the bedspread was not pulled up and tight fresh looking it was pulled loose and down about a foot or so like it had been throw back together,the shower had a used bottle of shampoo in it (it was clearly the missing toiletry on the sink as there was no shampoo only a little lotion there) and hair in the bottom of thr shower. The garbage can had some kind of red gross substance in it,honestly looked like a loogie. We would have left or asked for another room but we were told it was the last one and that there were no other rooms at any hotels for a very,very long time. It was already 2AM by the time we checked in and we had very young little ones with us so we had no choice but to turn a blind eye at the moment. We could not safely continue driving the distance we were told it would be to another hotel with how fatigued we were.Now that we are home and settled and from our two week travels we cannot ignore our bad experience. Out of all the hotels we stayed in on our travels even ones that cost less this one was the dirtiest and most disapointing. We didn't think it would be at it's $119 price tag. Very disapointed...P.S I also posted this review on their website which they never posted it. It appears they are only posting positive reviews and deleting the negative ones. BUYER BEWARE!

After making a last minute decision not to camp at Pictured Rocks, we made a reservation sight-unseen at White Pine Lodge. We were incredibly surprised when we arrived. Unlike many of the seedy-looking roadside motels in the UP, White Pine Lodge is large and clean. The staff was incredibly pleasant. The rooms were decorated like an upscale nursing home, but it was clean and comfortable.

There is an attached convenience store and gas station. Not really a romantic getaway, but it was fun to pick up a bottle of wine and walk to the room. Also within walking distance is a casino and a great restaurant/bar. Pictured Rocks cruises is just a 10 minute drive down the road. We would totally stay again if ever in the neighborhood.
