My wife and I stayed here this weekend. Perfect place if you are in the Crystal Lake area. We were there taking photos of Northern Michigan. Microwave, Fridge, Direct TV. It's right across from Crystal Lake. In the rear of the Lodge, there is a duck conservancy area. There were about 30 ducks out there when we woke up. I...

This is a family-owned business and while the guy was very nice - I would not stay here again. In fact, if I would have been able to get a refund for my second night, I would have checked out. But they have a no cancellation policy and if you leave early, you lose out. The room was not that...

We have stayed at Northwoods Lodging about once a year for about twenty years! We keep coming back because we love the clean, fresh room that is always waiting, the crystal clear pool, and the fabulous location in Beaulah, Michigan. This year, Jim the owner, took us on a ride on his red custom-made motorcycle. We went around half the...

Our heater was,quiet -- a nice surprise in an older motel. We appreciated the pet-frriendly policy, and the fridge, since we were provisioning local foods on this trip. The owner...

Simple but very clean room with a comfortable bed, fridge, coffeemaker, fast wifi and a big TV. Bathroom is very small, no hairdryer. During the day the rooms are very noisy because of the traffic.

“Ask for a room in the back if your concerned with road noise. Hair dyers at front desk, just ask. Request a room on the second floor facing the wetlands and deer watch!”

“They seem to have traditional old style motel rooms as well as a number of different room layouts in the newer areas of the facility. Our efficiency was literally just a few feet from the state road that travels by so there was some traffic noise, but it did not disturb our sleep or keep us from having a good time. We did not have a pool side room, but you may want to ask about options for pool side rooms because they look nice too.”
