We arrived at the Crystal Lake Resort after reserving a room through Travelocity. The guy at the desk said there was no record of of our reservation and there were no rooms available. He did suggest contacting a nearby hotel and we were able to get a nice room for the night.

Clean room with a private beach

Our room was nice and clean with a view of the water. No breakfast was offered at the hotel, which was ok, so I planned and brought food with us, but there was no mini refrigerator in the room or an ice machine or vending machine available. It would have been easier and cheaper not to eat out for every meal while we were there.

Not thrilled....

Pros: never stayed
Cons: The proprietor was very nonchalant about the whole issue. At least she let me use the phone and a pen. I never plan to travel to this establishment.
Location: n/a
Truth IS...I cannot comment on the accommodations because we NEVER GOT TO STAY. At least the staff allowed me to use the telephone. Travelocity canceled our reservation by sending an email at 11:45pm the evening before we departed. Needless to say, I did not receive the email before departing. I printed the confirmation the evening prior to departure to call and confirm. But, the confirmation said, "No need to call and confirm. Your reservation is guaranteed." This was Labor Day weekend, 300 miles from home with an autistic child in tow (some of you will truly understand what that means). I will say that the point of contact (POC) with Travelocity made arrangements elsewhere, in a far superior room (TrVel picked up the difference in $$$), but only because we were willing to travel another 40 miles. No, not a big deal; but, NOT where we wanted to be. I made "suggestions" to Travelocity, *crickets*. So be it.

Lakeside Hotel

Pros: Beautiful crystal blue lake - easy walk to the beach.
Cons: Room darkening shades on windows facing street and lighted sign. Hair dryer&shelf for makeup In-room Coffee maker Brighter lighting in room
Location: Right in the middle of the Leelanau Peninsula . Beautiful fall colors on M-31 and M-22 and cute towns to stop and shop - we had a wonderful weekend.
Our host, Jim, was very helpful and friendly. This is a 2-story motel with cottages on the lake side. Some of the rooms look out on the lake - our room was on the street side. Room was very clean - size was perfect for overnight stay. We are thinking about renting one of the cottages next year.

Clean but spartan and overpriced

Pros: Clean
Cons: A coffee pot in the room, more room for luggage and hanging bags, a small refrigerator, etc.
Clean but spartan. No amenities. Overpriced for what you get
