We've stayed at 5 star resorts in Hawaii, the Carribean, etc, and have never had the level of service that we had here. Don't let the pics fool you: although it appears and feels like a hotel from 1900, it was a totally rebuilt hotel in 2015 and is in amazing condition. We're more a $150/night type people, but the exceptionally friendly staff, the cleanliness and the view definitely makes it worth the price tag.

It took me a few days to correctly articulate the feel of Hotel Walloon. I ended at, "Vintage Lake Chic." The hotel was modern in every way - clean and a new feeling. But intentionally decorated to harken back to the early 20th century. Everything about Hotel Walloon is cool. It's made to relax and have a great time. The property is set on Lake Walloon - a small beach and ample outdoor seating - a quintessential summer escape. The water is clear and beautiful. The lake is big - it could never feel busy, even though there are plenty enjoying water activities. A large fireplace occupies the lobby. There are several sitting areas and a bartender nearby to mix cocktails at your leisure. The billiards room down the hallway is an old-school way to relax, or burn off some calories at the fitness room nearby. The rooms are well-appointed - and clean. There is no room service or onsite restaurant - they have an affiliated restaurant one block away and there is an unaffiliated restaurant immediately next door. Excellent and professional service. This is a five star hotel no matter how you look at it. Pricey, but worth it.

My husband and I just got back from an extended stay at the hotel Walloon, and we cannot say enough good things about what a treasure this hotel is! We travel a lot, and stay at some very nice hotels..and I can tell you that this hotel is right up there at the top of our list! The service, and staff are second to none! Not to mention the coziness and beautiful decor that greets you as soon as you step into this special place. We fell in love with this hotel from the first moment we arrived! If you are looking for a first class hotel in beautiful Northern Michigan.. this is it!

My husband and I needed to relax after my son’s wedding in June (that had moved twice because of the Covid-19 Pandemic). It was the perfect solution for complete relaxation and pampering! We arrived on Friday night before the 4th and departed Tuesday morning, 7/5. To start with, the hotel is absolutely gorgeous! It is truly the nicest hotel we have stayed at in Northern Michigan and one of the nicest in the whole world (compared to the U.S.A., Canada, the Caribbean, Belize, Africa, Japan, & Thailand). We also enjoy the history as Hotel Walloon sits on Walloon Lake where Earnest Hemingway’s family had a vacation home! In addition, the staff effortlessly helps to make everything perfect. The concierge staff are especially amazing as there is so much to do in the area. We learned that there are new wineries so had a great afternoon visiting a few. Finally, the fireworks on the lake for the 4th of July were literally the best we have ever seen!

The loveliest hotel with the loveliest staff. Everything was perfect, room well appointed. The staff went out of their way to ship a tablet my husband left in the room. We would go back in a second all the way from Los Angeles, it was truly A+ and you will not go wrong staying there. Worth every penny!
