I was very pleasantly surprised by this motel. I was quiet and very clean. The continental breakfast was also nice. Staff was very friendly and helpful.

We were very pleased with our stay at Alpine Motor Lodge. This hotel sits on a scenic hillside with well maintained grounds. Our room was very clean, spacious and comfortable. The owners are truly service orientated and accomodated any extra requests we made(example: extra pillows). The continental breakfast was good, and all this for a very reasonable price. This was our first stay at this motor lodge but not our last!

Stayed at the Alpine over the 4th of July weekend with our 3 year old and 13 year old. The rooms were older but clean, very spacious with refrigerator and coffee maker. Beds were a bit lumpy and pillows flat (we always bring our own pillows, though). The owners/operators were very friendly and made sure we had everything we needed. Decent outdoor pool (not heated) and small play area for the kids was nice. Motel was full but we did not hear any noise all night. Very close to Little River Casino and downtown Manistee. Continental breakfast in the lobby each morning was okay (just your basic bagels, danish, fruit, cereal, coffee and juice). The best part was being able to back your car right up to your door. Would definitely stay here again.

Among the fields of western Michigan little away from the city is a small little motel owned by very loving owners Barb & Jerry who are very friendly and made us as comfortable as possible. The place is kept very clean, but the property is old so do not expect new furniture and fixtures. As clean as a place like this can get. There is a little outdoor pool and a small put-put golf. Also some play structures for the small kids. Would definitely consider staying there again.

The owners/managers were very responsive to all our needs, and made us feel as if we were staying with family.

Not as modern as the national chains, but the conveniences made up for it. Among others (1) a mini-fridge in our room (2) driving the car right up to the door, making it easier to load and unload the car (3) 10 miles outside the city, so that it is more private, and I could let my children swim in the pool without standing over them.
