We come here every year and Brook and the staff treat us awesome!!! They even went out this year and bought a fire pit for us to use... The restaurant food is really good and the service from the bartender and waitress was great.

The hotel was good. did not realize that there was an indoor water park attached to it. The breakfast was disappointing. The proximity to the lake was nice but would be better if they offered some activities besides the water park.

I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for your hospitality and awesome attitude! While the folks at the American Inn and Suites were very nice and the facility was adequate, your establishment far out shined them. I travel quite a bit for work and pleasure and was really impressed! I would also like to pass along that... More

The food was great! I wanted to be positive with my first statement. I went for the nice lakefront jacuzzi king room (I've never been to Michigan) - yes, we got one, but upon arrival we happened on a wedding in full "I Do's" was nice, but the speaker on the balcony was right next to our room - fortunately...

Great location, very rude waitress. Came with my family by boat. Could of been a relaxing dinner and drinks but the service was lousy. If she is soo miserable with her job I wish she would have left before she ruined our experience.

This is a place that doesn't know how amazing it could be with a few minor tweaks. First off, if you have a nice boat, I would never bring it here. Their dock is so dilapidated it is amazing they haven't been hit with a lawsuit. Secondly, their outdoor seating is constantly covered with either leftover food, bird poop, or... More

I attended a conference and stayed the night before. I was right by the entrance to the arcade so I thought there might be nice but there wasn't. The attached restaurant had a nice selection and very good service. My room was clean but nothing special. Rain all day so you couldn't use the outdoor furniture. Good thing there is... More

Brooklyn was the most amazing host. She even went so far as to make me blue cheese stuffed olives for my drink. In all my travels, no one has ever done that for me. STELLAR SERVICE. And the bartendar Chris made the perfect martini and served me one of the best rib eyes I've ever eaten. I highly recommend Lakeside.... More

I came to the resort with my boyfriend and we had a terrific time. Jenny helped us check in & she was very helpful. Our room was clean and we even called the front desk for extra stuff and they were extremely responsive! The restaurant topped it off, I had the Vegetable Alfredo and it was the best I've ever...
