This property is one of the most welcoming hotels I've ever visited. The lobby opens to a large gathering space with a fireplace in the middle. There are several large screen televisions which can be controlled by the guests, but there is plenty of room where the televisions can't be heard. This room is where breakfast is served and where...

We stayed two nights over Valentine's weekend. The lobby and fireplace are lovely and spacious. Our bed was very comfortable and the room was clean. Breakfast was nice the first morning. The problems that keep this hotel from a higher rating in my opinion are: * the pillows- square and uncomfortable- they look cute on the bed, but not for... More

We recently stayed at the Lodge as part of a group reservation. We had 10 families in town for a soccer tournament. The process to secure group rates and get the rooms reserved was smooth. Upon check in everyone's rooms were ready, clean and nice. The staff were always professional and went above and beyond to assist us throughout our... More

I needed a place to stay for the evening. The hotel was convenient and clean. It served my purpose. Unless one plans to live there it would serve for several days. As long as it met my minimum needs- clean dry convenient place to stay it was suitable

This hotel is a jewel. It has all the ad entities you would like, cozy atmosphere with cocktail reception each night. You will love the staff and the hotel lobby is just like being at home. It is very close to the major restaurant like Bonefish Grill M Carabbas and Olive Garden.

What a pleasant surprise it was to stumble upon this cozy hotel. This was one of those "what's not to like?" kind of places where you have to literally look for things to be disappointed about. The rooms could be bigger, the toaster could have both levers instead of just one, the mouse on the computer could have worked better... More
