very grouchy people. they were very strict. Dad was sitting on beach. He was going to kick him off. Dad said Iam staying here. owner said oh. walked away. They were not nice people at all. A person that own a place like this should at least be a little friendly

We spent a Thursday evening at the Crystal Lake Resort. Arriving without a reservation we were given a very reasonable, midweek, off-season rate for a ground floor room with a king size bed. This is an old style mom and pop two story motel with rooms opening to the parking lot and the highway. We did not hear traffic from...

As others have noted, this is a roadside motel but traffic noise wasn't bad. I booked online and when we arrived, the owner upgraded us to a room on the second floor which had a better view of the water (Crystal Lake). The room had fresh carpet and paint and was clean and comfortable. The bathroom was a bit dated...

The rooms were clean. Great owners who really wanted to make our stay enjoyable. The view of the lake from our room was Beautiful. No coffee in our room but had coffee available in the office. The only issue I had was the water, there was a high amount of chlorine that ruined my bracelets. I would stay again but...

This is a roadside motel, but very clean with friendly owner. The room was very small, but all was clean and the bed very comfortable. The bathroom was typical but quite adequate for our needs. The owner was very friendly and helpful. All in all, a decent place to stay.

I stayed here August 18th, and loved it. With a couple days off of work, I decided to head north and enjoy sleeping bear state park. I found Crystal Lake Resort and had no idea what to expect. It is beautiful! The owner was amazing and extremely accommodating. The room was clean and comfortable, a very peaceful and relaxing feel....

All rooms face beautiful Crystal Lake! Nice beach area with chairs and little tables. Rooms are very comfortable and have recently been remodeled. Staff very friendly. Close to Lake Michigan, golf courses, restaurants, shops. Free wifi in the room, that was great! One suggestion would be mini coffee pots in the room. There was a coffee pot in the office.

We had a wedding this weekend and this location was on the list of places for guests. Small, 12 rooms, and several cabins. Our room was very clean and looked like it was recently updated. Had free wifi and big screen tv, king bed. No refrigerator or microwave. This is a resort area and prices reflected that. There's access to...

Spent two nights there on a motorcycle trip. Place was nice and clean. Appears to have been updated recently. They have a nice beach with tables and chairs. Short walk to nearby restaurant, longer walk to downtown area and shops. Owners are also connected to nearby Cold Creek Inn.
