“Stay & play package”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2011

This was our second stop on a three day golf trip. Hotel was awesome. Loved our room. Totally smoke free. The 17th street grill is attached. Had a great dinner. Package price was a little high. The room part. But you get what you pay for. Would stay here again. All staff were friendly and helpful.

For the last few years I've ridden up to Grand Rapids on my motorcycle and stayed at the Timberlake Lodge. It is a JEWEL of a hotel: beautifully decorated, impeccably clean, a fantastic staff, and an in-house restaurant that has an amazing chef and staff in the kitchen. After a long day's ride on the bike to see the colors, being able to clean up and just walk down the hall for a relaxing dinner is wonderful. Sore muscles? Go down to the pool area where the hot tub is and soak your bones! Truly, an outstanding hotel for a very fair price. My only regret about posting such a glowing report is that I might not be able to book a room when I want one - the hotel will be full! Definitely a great place to stay!

Room Tip: Rooms on the front side face the parking lot and other nearby businesses, and rooms on the back face...

Cindy K, Thank you so very much for your review. We are very happy to hear that you keep coming back to Grand Rapids for your motorcycle trips. The fall colors here are exquisite and this year so was the weather. We hope to see you again next year, or sooner. But do book early, the word is getting out about this great property, and we are booking up fast!

Stopped for one night while traveling, what a beautiful place. The rooms were clean and the staff was helpful. Reasonable rates and a free breakfast, what more can you ask for. They even turned the waterslide on so my 7 year old grand daughter could play.
Thanks.

The Timberlake was such a surprise. Lovely facility with great staff who greeted us like they had known us for years. We were travelling by motorcycle so just wanted to check in, chillout and have a good meal. We did all of the above. Two free drink tickets when we checked in and a delicious meal in their restaurant. The bar/patio were great. Watch out for the "magic gin". Packed a punch!!! Great, comfortable beds and the most amazing giant shower I have ever been in. Could have stood there forever!!! Great value for the $$$.

The timberlake gets all the little things done right which makes the overall visit perfect. The rooms are varied and well appointed, the staff is friendly and professional. The food and dr is are prepared by pros. When ever we have business people in the area, we always book the Timberlake

We stayed here with our three children (12, 11, 8) for a 3-day Labor Day Weekend. What a treat! Every employee in this hotel appears happy to be there and more than helpful. The rooms were clean and nicely appointed. The included breakfast was top notch. We didn't eat at the restaurant but did enjoy the bar a bit and it is beautiful. I wouldn't call it a "waterpark", as it only has one slide and a toddler slide, but the pool and hot tubs are very nice and clean (not worth the $10 guest fee, however). Large lobby to read the paper, get on the computer, visit with friends, etc. Would certainly stay here again and recommend it to others!

Very clean, nice room - especially the suites. Staff super friendly and eager to please. Best hotel experience I've had in a long, long time.

Room Tip: Get a suite - walk in showers are awesome!!!
