I loved my stay. Everything was absolutely perfect. The beds were made clean and it was very quiet. I way driving out and didn't have time to go home so I was looking for a place to stay, and to my rescue came the woodland motor lodge. The prices are affordable, and the people there are so nice and amazing.... More

We got one of the units farthest from the road - so it was really quiet. Close to town, family owned. It's not a 5 star hotel but you aren't paying that either. If you need a place to sleep, i would stay here again.

I booked this motel based on good reviews, and it turned out to be a very positive experience. I stayed one night and found the price reasonable for the quiet, clean room at some distance from the highway (though the motel itself and some of the rooms are right a the highway). The lady who runs the place was very... More

This place takes hospitality to a new level! Rob and Diane make you feel like you are their personal guests... Starting from the reservation. I mentioned that I was meeting some old Navy buddies for a weekend of riding ATV's, and they made it their goal to make us at home. They had a bonfire AND grill just waiting for... More

Myself and 3 Navy Brothers left the big city for Grayling, MI to ride our ATV's. The accommodations at Woodland Motor Lodge were outstanding and the Owners and staff truly kind people.

This motel is great. The owners are putting money into this place and it shows. The office man showed us a couple of rooms that had recently been updated and they are beautiful. No wonder why they were one of the first motels to be full on MLK weekend. We had a great stay. Plenty of room to park our... More

Our family stayed here for one night on our way to the UP. The price was very reasonable! The room was adequate but could use a little help. There was a slight odor in the room, but nothing terrible. Might have just been because the room had been closed up for a few days. The room was clean. The bathroom,... More
