We had a king room, I think they might call them suites but really just a large room. Plenty of room for king bed and large sofa. Could have used cocktail table in front of sofa. Everything was nice and clean. Breakfast was simple as other reviews mention but adequate with coffee, juice, toast, cereal, waffles, yougart and cold eggs. No fruit nor any other hot things. Would stay again when in area. Friendly front desk staff. At checkin we got coupons for $5 of play at casino next door. Property is several miles outside of Munising but a very nice scenic drive on shores of lake so that should not hinder from selecting hotel.

Room Tip: King rooms only on street side and can be some road noise in morning but did not bother us.

After waiting 40 minutes in a line of about 5 people ahead of us to check in (a very slow process!!!), we were told that "someone" had called in to cancel our reservation for 3 rooms. What a joke! Our last name is not common and really 3 rooms! The hotel was booked and they didn't even offer us a discount on a future visit or try to help us get another hotel. We had a confirmation number and had these rooms booked ahead of time at a discounted rate. I think they decided they could rent them out for more money or somone knew someone who needed 3 rooms and so "someone" called to cancel our reservation. Will never stay here again nor will the other couples in our group! In reading the other reviews I see a pattern of poor service and dirty rooms. Glad we found a much nicer hotel a short drive away, and check in for 3 couples took less than 5 min. total there!

I guess scarcity of options and the short tourist seasons dictate the price, which is almost a double what you'd expect from a place so remote and so plain - but at least you get good size rooms, excellent mattresses, and very nice service for your money. Even rooms facing the road are quiet at night.

Our room was semi-clean with the bare necessities. The mattress was dirty and the reason I know this is because the mattress pad on the bed was wrinkled so when I went to fix it, I saw the dirty mattress. Our original plan was to stay in another town but every hotel was sold out so we ended up at the White Pine Lodge. It was better than nothing, but only that. The continental breakfast consisted of dried out bagels, waffles you make yourself and brown water as coffee. Not worth the money for a room.

After reading the reviews I thought how can a Continental Breakfast be so bad...somehow WhitePines Lodge has managed. Everything about the place is cheap. Rock hard beds and pillows and lousy cutomer service. Plus they charged me 8.00 more than quoted over the phone. They don't send a confirmation prior to arrival so you have no way of proving the quoted price. The location is good as they are close to the Pictured Rocks.

We really enjoyed our stay. Prime Rib dinner at Foggeys was very good. Our room was spacious. The staff was very friendly & helpful. Ice cream cone was delicious. Hot Tub was very relaxing. What more can a "woman" ask for?????
