We came to the Cadillac/Manistee area for a family wedding. My family decided to stay one more night & the hotel where the wedding was held was booked so we went looking and found this great place. The rooms are very clean and updated. They have a beautiful flower garden in the back of the hotel and chickens! My daughters...

We would stay at Alpine Motor Lodge again. We have already recommended it to friends & family. Breakfast was offered & was varied & very good. Room was large & clean. Mattress was perfect for a good night's sleep. Service was excellent. Owner's welcomed us & made us feel comfortable. Daily rate was amazing.

After looking at reviews online I decided to reserve a room here and wasn't disappointed. The owners, Jerry & Barb were really friendly and accommodating. I really like that it's set back off Hwy 31. It was easy to find, even in the dark. The room was more than adequate, it was clean, the room was huge, beds were fine,...

We want to thank you for taking the time to write a review. We really enjoy our home business. Our guests are the best!

The room was clean and the shower was excellent. They had a breakfast for us in the morning. We greatly enjoyed the Manistee area. Had a very nice dinner outside along the River Walk. House Keeping helped keep the vacation enjoyable. They went over and beyond.

I chose this Motel because of its location right on Hwy 31. Easy access to the sand dunes and riding up the Leelanau Peninsula. The room was clean and the shower was excellent. They had a breakfast for us in the morning and if they had a little more I would have rated 5 stars. All in all not a...

This hotel has been a part of our annual vacation for nearly 10 years now! We always rent the corner room to accommodate our massive family, and Barb and Jerry are a part of the family too! Exceptional service, comfortable beds. I love the pool, the little playground and the putt-putt. This place is a real home-away-from-home and I regret...

We are so glad you enjoyed your stay with us. Since we own and live at the Alpine Motor Lodge ourselves, we are very conscious about the condition of our rooms.

We look forward to the Sleighbell Victorian Christmas weekend in Manistee Michigan because that is the time of year when our family and friends gather at the Alpine Lodge for the first full weekend in Dec.
