Politeness and cleanliness is everywhere and I can't think of a bunch of people so eager to see you enjoy your stay.

5/5 Rating | Keith M.

The hotel’s central location to all the “must-do’s” in northwest-Michigan makes this property even more ideal. Just booked another night!

5/5 Rating | Jon S.

If I could give the Hotel Walloon 10 stars, I would. Exceptional service!

5/5 Rating | Kendra K.

Staying at this hotel has been consistently incredible! The customer service here is parallel (if not better) than the Ritz Carlton or any other top rated hotel in the country

5/5 Rating | Claire F.

Most incredible place in Michigan!
