Reviewed yesterday NEW

It was a very comfortable stay. We stayed there two times now and both times the stay was excellent. The rooms were clean . The beds are comfortable. The view from the windows was very scenic. The hotel is located in a quit area, the traffic on the highway was not noticed at all.

The rooms, amenities, and extras (lemonade, fire outside, sitting areas) were delightful. The front desk staff was an absolute pleasure- very friendly, professional, and full of local knowledge and suggestions. Wonderful experience!

Stayed here for a meeting for a weekend. Hotel was clean and the staff was fantastic. We used the outdoor patio with a fire pit every night and watched the deer and eagles on the property. Would definitely stay here again.

Always drove by, never stopped. Then the girls and I needed to get out of the UP for a couple days and we went to the crooked river lodge. It's clean, gorgeous, and there are a ton of things to do outside ( nature trails, kyaks, feeding the fish, fireplaces) the pools nice, and the waterfall is a fun touch....

We stop here whenever we are in northern Michigan. The rooms are exceptionally clean and the service is great! We love the fire pit out back, and the generous breakfast each morning. The price is also very reasonable.

The game room, the fire pit, the river to paddle on. We had a very nice stay and I wish I had known about it when my kids were young. It would have been a great place to take them where they would have plenty to do.

We LOVE the Crooked River Lodge! For the price of a typical hotel room, you get a lovely view of the river, natural trails, paddle boat, kayaks, indoor pool, game room including a large screen TV, pool table and various board games, and a superb breakfast! We spend two nights there with our 7 & 9 year old and had...
