Great stay at The Lodge, will be going back. Four of the group has massages which were wonderful. We have a family suite which worked out great for the six of us. We also brought a blow up mattress and it fit in the "kids" room along with the pull out couch. Kitchen was well stocked, however it lacked paper...

This is not your typical Best Western. I go out of my way and plan my business trip when I'm in the surrounding area so I can stay at this property. I'm never disappointed! The property is beautifully maintained and has a fabulous lake view. The rooms are very spacious, super clean, updated linens, and include extra amenities in the...

I was in town for business and the room was average. The bathroom vent was dirty and something sticky on the bathroom floor was the first thing I noticed when walking into the bathroom. The bed was comfortable and I had a good nights rest. The bar needs help. It was hard to order food off the menu because they...

Dear Joel, Thank you for taking the time to share your experience while staying at The Lodge. I want to apologize for not providing the exceptional stay we are known for. Average is not a description we hear from our guests. Your review has been used to set a new policy for cleaning our fan vents. Our fans run for...

This hotel is one of the cleanest and friendliest I have ever stayed in. I stayed there last week for business. I did arrive in town early and stopped in to confirm the time for check in and to tell them that due to work, I would not be able to check in until the evening. I was there about...

I always stay here when I am in the area. The hotel is located on a large lake. The hotel is clean, the staff is efficient and helpful, and the beds are comfortable. All areas and rooms are well appointed. The variety of breakfast items should please everyone. I enjoy eating off of china plates, using real silverware, and cloth...

My husband and I went north to see the beautiful Fall Foliage this year and came upon the Lodge at the last minute. We hadn't booked a hotel for the night, so found this one through Hotels.com and were thrilled!!! It was so unique and rustic in appearance, yet spacious with a wonderful view of the water from our balcony....

The Lodge on Lake Detroit was magnificent! Comfortable rooms, gorgeous baths, and the most beautiful sunsets you'll ever see. The 38 women who enjoyed 3 days of knitting, visiting and eating had a wonderful time.

I was fortunate to be able to attend an event at this location for 3 nights. It was a brilliant decision to design the hotel so that every room looks out over the lake. The rooms are beautiful, beds are extremely comfortable, and the staff can't possibly be any more accommodating.

Found this hotel near a wedding we were attending. It's adorable. Lodge look and feel, great view of the lake, and a cozy lounge with a fireplace and s'mores you can make with the kids. Used the gym, good for basic needs. Breakfast was fine. Hotel was clean, staff were polite. Would recommend.

Staff is very friendly and helpful, rooms are hospital clean. Full breakfast is included with room stay and is excellent. It would be nice to have phone books in the rooms and transportation services available like some other top hotels. With no phone book, you really have to scratch to find taxi services. Being the hotel is two miles from...
