I stayed here last week and had a great stay. The staff was always friendly and helpful- great food. The room we stayed in was clean and roomy. Housekkepers were always ready to give me an extra towel or help with directions. I always felt like they were glad I was here. I know my next trip to the area...

This was my third stay at the Alpine Lodge. Each visit has been wonderful. We finally got the opportunity to try the wood fired pizza, which is amazing! The atrium pool area and hot tub were great as always. And the hot breakfast tasted wonderful. I had a couple helpings of the potatoes ;-) Our room was clean and comfortable....

Here's the good! Good price. Good service. Good location. Good pool area and hot tub wit sauna. Heres the bad. The building is in serious need of upgrade. The stairwells were dirty. Our room is noisy with snowmobiles running close by later well after dark. Hard to sleep. Outdoor sidewalks are not maintained, difficult for handicapped. Would I go back?...

Not near enough plugs in the room, lamp didn't work. Went for breakfast at 9:30, nothing left. Only thing my husband could say was "Never...

I think there are enough user submitted photos on tripadvisor to see that this is an older property in need of an overhaul/updating. The rooms are generally cleanish, but there's only so much staff can do with what they've got. If that's a concern, you may want to skip the Alpine and consider staying at the Hampton or Holiday Inn...
