I read all the reviews before booking and was a little hesitant to book a room here. Well we ended up booking for 3 nights. I gotta say I was really surprised (after reading the other reviews) at how nice and clean our room was. Bed was very comfortable also. Wifi was great and so was the water pressure in... More

I booked 2 nights over Spring Break and only stayed 1. This was a last minute trip with two 15 year old girls so I thought they would enjoy the new water park but I was wrong. The indoor water park is really for children( ages 3-10) not older kids. My girls spent an hour at the water park and... More

Have stayed here multiple times in the past few years. The indoor water park is always a hit with my 11 year old. The staff are friendly. The dinner buffet was not as good as I remembered but it was enjoyable. Breakfast buffet was very good. Enjoyed the Bluegrass music in the evening. The room was nice and clean. Bathroom... More

Pros: scenic, water park, awesome shopping area nearby, not too expensive Cons: beds are horribly uncomfortable, wish the pool had an addition to actually swim in (they have a outside pool, but wish they had one inside) Overall- Abe Martin lodge is a nice place. Staff seemed productive..and took care of us. Good place for a mini vacation or just... More

Nice clean rooms, all staff I encountered were friendly and helpful. I took my 5 and 7 year old grandkids for a few days and they really loved the indoor water park. It rained most of the time we were there so no hiking or other park adventures, but really all they wanted to do was play in the water... More

Love Brown County. It's beautiful and nearby Nashville is also worth a visit. Check-in was 2 hours later than normal (normal being 4 p.m.). No apologies, even a bit of attitude at the front desk by an assistant manager. Suck it up & go, i guess. The family cabin was outdated. Thankfully the waitstaff in the attached restaurant were very... More

I will not stay at this hotel again. The waterpark was very nice, but the hotel is old, dirty and poorly taken care of. The hotel hallways are dark, and the room made me nauseous. There was no ventilation, the bedskirts were dirty and stained, the bed covers clearly have not been washed and were smelly. The bathtub had hair... More

If you are going to Brown County State Park, a night at the Abe Martin Lodge is very pleasant. The mattress was nice and firm, the shower pressure was excellent (it looked as though the shower had been recently renovated) and it had the typical State Park woodsy decor. The staff is very friendly which is always helpful. Since we... More

We travel here a few times a year and we are never disappointed. The water park is designed so parents can see the entire park even from the hot tub. The staff is always friendly and the food at there is always amazing! Love it here!

The Abe Martin Lodge at Brown County State park is an unique property. It has a very nice lodge area, with rooms from the 40's and a wing that was added about 20 years ago. it also has stand alone hotel rooms surrounding the lodge and housekeeping cottages. I have stayed in all different types, but this review covers the... More
