Our most recent stay at Pere Marquette Lodge was midweek in July 2015. Rate (about $100) was reasonable We had a large room in old section of lodge, accessible only by stairs to second floor. The room had a great river view with a window that opened. King bed was comfortable with lamps on both sides. Room had a comfortable... More

We stayed at the lodge to get away from everything for a night. It was the best get away ever! We enjoyed great food in the restaurant, hiking on the trails and peace and quiet. We wished we had known about this when our children were younger as they would have enjoyed a stay there!

We spent one night here in July in a king room with a sofa. Paid about $168 including the lugs. This is a state park lodge located in the trees and bluffs near the Illinois River. Great views from the main lodge, which was built by the CCC. There are old and new rooms. We had a new room, which... More

Pere Marquette was exactly what we hoped it would be. Having searched for over a year to find the right spot to hold our family reunion, I came across what I'd hoped was the perfect place. Once there it didn't disappoint either. The rooms were big and comfortable. The pool area was awesome. We took advantage of the bike trails,... More

This was a home visit back in 2011 and we selected to stay at Pere Marquette lodge. It was convenient for us as it was close to family and within travelling distance of other attractions. The rooms were very nice and layed out in cottage format which we loved. There is also a restaurant on site as well as a... More

Really impressed and will definitely plan another visit. Our 4 year old loved it! Recommend getting a cabin during the week. Very reasonable. Enjoyed the indoor pool and hot tub. Ran on the trails along the river. Staff very friendly. Breakfast was excellent. Lots of games to play in the main room, including a giant chess board and Connect Four.... More

We went here for breakfast and just a general little self-guided tour. The dining room was wonderful and the breakfast was very good, and very reasonably priced. The park is a really nice place to just walk around and soak up the history. The visitor's center is very helpful and has a lot of displays to look at. Although we... More

I very much enjoyed this facility. It's a neat CCC-built lodge not too far from St. Louis. The hotel itself is really beautiful. The great-room is fantastic, with gorgeous fiber art hanging from the ceiling and gigantic board games to relax and play with friends. The business meeting rooms were very nice also. The staff were quite kind.

I've stayed here a few times and have, for the most part, enjoyed my experience. The rooms are nice, there is a good pool, it's close to the state park, and the place has character and charm. The most recent time I was here, the breakfast fare at the restaurant wasn't spectacular. We also discovered a mouse in our cabin!... More

My husband and I rented a cabin at this location. It was very rustic and roomy. It had a separate living room, bedroom and decent bathroom. It was walking distance to the lodge. The lodge has a winery, gift shop and restaurant. The food at the restaurant was pretty good. The wine was a little weak for my taste. Overall,... More
