Everything was very nice. The ladies at the desk greeted me with a smile. I will be returning. When I entered my room, I was very pleased how nicely the room was put together. The room was very clean.

Great Hotel! Great value! The room was clean and comfortable and the air conditioner worked very well. My room had a flat screen tv and refrigerator. Stores like target and publix are in short walking distance. Restaurants from fast food to steak houses are in walking distance. There is a shopping mall right next to the hotel if you forgot...

Room rate came with a free happy hour-5:30-7:30 including mixed drinks and popcorn. Standard free breakfast fare (waffles, no pancakes). Lounge area was friendly and warm but furniture a little tired. Four pillows on bed were shaped into squares, not very comfortable. No fan in bath. Nice that shampoo, conditioner were supplied but very difficult to get the product out... More

We were headed to the college for a special ceremony for a friend and needed a place to stay. It was recommended to us to stay at The Lodge, and boy was that recommendation right on the nose. The fresh baked afternoon cookies greeted us as we arrived to check in and made the long day of travel melt away.... More

Several months ago I made reservations to stay at The Lodge in June due to the wonderful reviews that I had read. Unfortunately when we checked into our room, we were extremely disappointed to discover that the room was a corner room with a window which faced a wall, housing several bats. We spoke with the desk clerk, Bryant Ireland,... More

After some two years, the wife and I stopped off at the "Lodge." Still a nice place just a few yards off I-25 to stay. Don't forget the $20 discount with the Motel Coupons available at rest stops along the way. We were not disappointed and neither will you. Also, very close to numerous restaurants. Go for it!
