Little Bear Motel
Ranked #3 of 3 Hotels in Glen Arbor
Reviewed 19 August 2007

We stayed one night here, and that was enough. It was the only place on the Leelanau I could find availibility at, without spending over $200/night. This was $79 with tax, and the room was not ready when we arrived at 5PM. Check-in is at 3PM. The manager told us to come back in an hour or so; the cleaning lady worked 3 jobs and had not gotten to this motel yet..., so off we go without our room. He told us we'd get some free ice cream whenever we wanted it, since he owns the ice cream store in front of the motel! After returning, we had to convince the young workers at the ice cream shop that we had paid and were registered. The room is ok, knotty pine, small, beds ok. Supposedly new bedding-not sure about that-the beds at best were "OK". Everything worked-lights, TV, remote, shower, locks.
Next day, we returned in the afternoon for our ice cream, and the manager rung up our tab, and when we reminded him of his free ice cream, you could tell he was not happy with that. Think we'd skip this place if the need ever arose again. Location is great though, right on the "Narrows" on the Glen Lakes.
