The Alpine Motel is under new ownership and has been completely redecorated as of June 2015. It is a great place for tourists who are looking for that true up-north experience. Knotty pine interiors and half log siding exteriors are a common theme found in our resort. We are surrounded by thousands of acres of Manistee National Forest. The Pere Marquette River, which boasts world-class brown trout, salmon and steelhead fishing is a 3/4 mile walk through the woods from the property, or drive to it as well. Snowmobilers can ride from the property to hundreds of miles of groomed trails. Hunting is also very poular in the area. The North Country Trail crosses through mutiple states, is open to hikers and mountain bikers and is just down the road. Let us be your go-to destination for all your up-north vacations!

Room was very tiny with various plastic plants taking space that could have been used for more important items. It was fairly quiet. None of the windows opened, so it wasn't possible to get fresh air unless I left the door open. When I tried to open the main window, the bottom area had not been cleaned and was full of dead moths, dust, etc. There was dirt and dust under the microwave stand, so I'm not sure when it had been moved out and the floor cleaned. I would have appreciated a shelf in the bathroom to store toiletries. The floor felt sticky under my bare feet, so I bought a pair of house slippers...the bottoms are black and sticky. It is obvious that the new owners have put some effort into upgrading this business. The doors are new and the furniture is in good shape. For this price, do not expect luxury at any level.

My family and I have stayed here a couple of times now. It is not the fanciest place... but if that's what you're looking for your in the wrong area. We come here to get away from all that. Within a short distance to the trails, beach, great fishing, canoeing... everything we like. The new owners are awesome and we really like staying here. That's why we come back!

Stayed at the Alpine Motel after disembarking from the SS Badger. Stopped at a Meijer's store on the way to the motel. Got a cabin with a bedroom and a bed in the main room. In the forest. The owner was gracious and attending not only to our needs but to the overall easy ambiance of this unique place to stay. An easy drive to Ludington and Ludington State Park.

I really wanted to write a review for this motel because I did like it. It's small, rustic and does have charm. I stayed in one of the smaller motel rooms. It had a microwave, small frig, coffee maker, TV and AC. Shower only. It was clean and the staff was friendly, It's was no frills, but it was perfect. Also it was VERY inexpensive compared to actually being in Luddington (10-15 min drive) where I had be during there high travel season.

We stayed in the "Antler Inn", a cute little cabin with 2 beds and a kitchen. Decorated in the hunting theme. We had a nice fire pit with chairs and a picnic table. The owner was on the premiss and was great to deal with.
