A friend and I stayed 4 nights at this charming hotel. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! We had a spacious room overlooking the springs (as suggested by other travelers.) . The Kerig coffee in the room was a nice amenity. The staff was very friendly. The caretakers of this lodge have gone out of their way to maintain a mid-century... More

So I'm a Marriott guy - but attended a wedding at this property, so, for convenience sake, stayed at the Lodge to be near all the festivities. First, the Lodge is beautiful. Built in 1937 and hasn't changed much at all. The staff is wonderfully charming, but sporadic. Not a decent staff:guest ratio at all. The hotel has no central... More

This is a remarkable lodge in a state park. The food is great. The ceiling of the main room is painted in "carosel" style. Charming live piano music in the evenings. Tarzan movies filmed at springs. Wakulla springs is the largest and deepest fresh water springs in the world. Pristine and full of wildlife. Just 20 minutes outside tallihassee.

The historic Mediterranean Revival-style lodge was built by financier Edward Ball and now is one of the main attractions at Wakulla Springs State Park. It offers guest a taste of old world charm and hospitality- i.e. no TVs in any of the guest rooms - and the views overlooking the springs from the dining room are beautiful. Good southern cooking...

We have visited Wakulla Springs for the past 30 years and we honestly love it! The springs is crystal clear and beautiful ; the Hotel is like stepping into frozen time as you see the styles of the 30's . The restaurant has come a long way!! The new Chef is very talented and is aiming to bring everything back... More

Lovely old-fashioned hotel and room as before :-) After all the busy cities and hotels in Florida is this hotel a relief. Rooms are old fashioned luxurious and relatively clean (could be better). Beautiful old-fashioned elevator. Staff is friendly and helpful. Unfortunately, this was the first bed in the USA where I slept badly due to bad (old?) mattress. Restaurant... More

Most of my research for this resort claimed crystal clear waters. Dark chocolate waters is more appropriate. Very little information offered as we checked in.The room was clean and spacious. The exposed wires in place of a smoke alarm got my attention. I found the note asking us to conserve water by reusing our towels somewhat amusing considering the badly... More

This was certainly an interesting place to stay. The rooms / public spaces are frozen in the 1940s. The bedrooms are quite sparse and this kind of works... I certainly was pleased not to see a TV there. It is a shame you can't walk down to the Spring edge after 6pm when the area closes but you can look... More

My husband and I stumbled onto this little gem a few years ago. The lodge is very "old timey". It doesn't have the modern conveniences. It isn't all shiney and new. The grand kids love the old elevator but my son thinks its something out of "the Shining". The staff is friendly, the rooms are spacious. This is where we... More

We entered another world going through the gate of Wakulla Springs Resort. The Lodge was built in 1934 with all the lavish details of that era. From the antique elevator, to the marble floors throughout, the splendor nourishes your being. We had a corner room which was sparse in furnishings (no tv), yet windows giving view of the magical beauty... More
