We are going to the springs on Labor Day and wanted to stay at the Lodge. I called them and they have availability, but the price is $25.00 more than if booked on Trip Advisor. I asked them if there was any difference between booking with them directly or with Trip Advisor, and they said they won't guarantee a room... More

I enjoyed 2 breakfast and 1 dinner at the Lodge Resturant and can attest to the delicious Shrimp and Grits. But the rooms in which you are suppose to sleep were too, too hot - in the 80s!! The air conditioner did not work & when I called the desk to ask for assistance, I was told the air conditioning... More

Mostly, the lodge is a great place to stay. Some people might be put off by the antiquated rooms, but we thought they were charming and they were clean, which is what counts. AC in the Lodge is apparently quite variable, but our room was just fine in the August heat. Staff at reception were super helpful, though in the... More

I loved this little treasure in the woods! I value these type of historic buildings. My kids and I loved the bragging rights to say we 'swam with the alligators'. Not really, but we did see one on the other side of the swimming rope! Even though there is no AC, we had a fan and felt a bit 'Eco... More

My family comes every year. We love it here,over the years there has been changes in management, some good some bad. But the overall feel of the place is fantastic,it's a step of simplicity back in time, with great chicken. BUT..I do not like the fact they make you book in 2-3 day stays during football games at a higher... More

Everything there was wonderful except for the fact that the A/C system was not working due to a complete overhaul of the very old system! Oh well, a large fan was in the room and after a couple of drinks, we did OK. It is a step back in time to stay at this lodge, including an old style large... More

We had been here many years before and decided to make a spring time trip to the area again to visit the many natural areas and stay at the lodge. But when we were there before my wife was fully ambulatory but in recent years MD has taken that privilege away from her. So now we are very sensitive to... More

We were unlucky to have a very bad experience with the front desk staff. We were travelling with a party of 4 and prepaid through a travel agency for the room. Upon arrival in the room we discoverd there were only 3 beds available. 1 double (but you better call it a twin) and 1 single bed. In the walk... More

I stayed here one night with my wife to visit this beautiful spring. We enjoyed the lodge immensely especially the 1937's Decour and furnishings. The elevators are wonderfully old and fast. The lodge was going under some construction when we were there and at times was operating off of generator power. The air-conditioning system operates off of the spring and... More

If you want 5 star go somewhere else . If u want old Florida style and feel stay here. Not perfect but perfect in its own way! Love it! Will be back for sure . Food in restaurant is wonderful albeit a little slow . Water is cold and manatees are plentiful
