Lacking essentials

One night stay. Mattress was hard and lumpy. Carpet in room and stairways was dirty. No elevator for heavy luggage. No tea bags at continental breakfast. Wallpaper falling off the wall in our room, ceiling in dining area in need of repair. Staff friendly and helpful. Looks as though the owner doesn't care if they get repeat business.

Very accommodating

Upon going through the check-in process, I was given a room on the second floor, without an elevator. I am on crutches, so was hoping not to be on the second floor. They only had a poolside room available and were kind enough to switch me into that room, without incurring a higher charge. THANK YOU!

Needs Something Special to keep going

The room needs work definitely, our TV didn't work, so we had to call the front desk to get it fixed........Every time we went to have a hottub, pool or sauna, it was never turned on, so you had to go back to our room to call the front desk to ask them to turn it on & they never did turn the sauna on. The breakfast not to be desired

getaway to gaylord

When we arrived I made sure they were pet friendly, they told me they were and also told me I had to take pet with me when I left hotel. Not happy about the rudeness of the staff. When we went in our room there was a 13 inch TV when website said big screen in every room. No cable TV. No fridge, or microwave like website stated. I probably will not stay there again

Great Location

Stayed at the Alpine Lodge in Gaylord, Michigan for two nights in October. We came up to see the beautiful fall colors. The hotel was in a great location where we could walk to the grocery store and several restaurants. They had free continental breakfast in the morning and had coffee available all day long. The coffee was one of my favorite things. Nice swimming pool and whirlpool, too. Next time I will bring my bathing suit. The only thing that would make it better would be a small bar fridge in the room for cold water or soft drinks. I would stay here again.

Very nice stay.

Very easy to get to from I-75. Clean, larger room (ours had double beds). No refrigerator. Hall smelled of chlorine bleach from pool but room didn't. One of the best continental breakfasts I've had; peaches and hard boiled eggs a nice touch. If staying in Gaylord wouldn't hesitate to stay again.

Nothing Special

Stayed for just one night while on vacation. The upside was a decent price, and very near the freeway and other businesses, including a grocery store and gas station. But other than that its not very good. The hotel has a dreary dated look and the rooms are showing their age too (some mechanical issues with the door and shower). Bed was hard too (which my Dad would appreciate, but not me). Biggest con: wi-fi was not working.
