We chose to stay at the Northwoods Lodge for two nights and were very pleased with our stay. The room was comfortable and was plenty large enough for two adults. The bathroom was very small and the shower especially so but we don't live there, just visiting for a few days so could easily make do. We appreciated the free... More

We recently stayed here with our family of four (our children are adults). Our room was quite small and the bathroom was almost hard to use. The shower head was very low and my husband and son had to bend to wash their hair. Limited towel space and very little counter space to put toiletries on. It appeared clean with... More

This is a simple motel, yet we were very pleased with our experience. The room was larger by far than most chain hotel rooms, and cleaner. Rates are reasonable. We were super impressed with how clean and spotless the entire place is. While parts of the hotel are older, the owner has taken great care to keep the things that... More

This is a no-frills motel near Sleeping Bears National Lakeshore. We stayed two nights and were very happy with the clean rooms, personal service, and quiet night's rest. The continental breakfast they serve in the summer was more than expected, and the pool was clean and welcoming. I would recommend this to anyone traveling to Northwest Michigan due to the... More

I don't typically write reviews but I felt compelled to do so. My family and I just returned from a 2 night stay at Northwoods Lodging and I could not be more pleased. The rooms were reasonably priced and the cleanest of any motel we have stayed, especially lately. I've noticed a tremendous decline in helpfulness, courtesy and cleanliness at... More

Very nice standard rooms and wonderful staff. Hotel and rooms were clean. Moderately priced. Quaint small town. Short drive to shopping and entertainment. Perfect for a quick family get-away weekend. Would definitely recommend this hotel.

We have stayed at the northwoods everytime we come to michigan. As usual, another nice stay, even with the cold weather for summer. The owners were always helpful and the owners go out of their way to make our visit pleasent. Noticed they raised their prices, but compared to the other motels in the area they were still in line.

Noise from road made it impossible to have a conversation with the windows open. Housekeeping minimal. TV very small. Shower iffy. The worst was the strong smell of cigarette smoke. Was not expecting deluxe, but still disappointed.

“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.”
