Let's be honest, you go to Santa Claus, IN to visit Holiday World--who cares about anything else? This hotel is literally minutes from the park. Yes, it's an older hotel, but you're not there for the amenities (which is good because we had a devil of a time getting wi-fi for our laptop--really never happened though staff tried hard to...

From the minute we stepped into the lobby area to check in, the little ones (and the big ones) were so excited! The surroundings made it feel like Christmas, even though it was the end of August. We had a wonderful time and have no complaints. Can't wait to go back!

After reading several reviews of this hotel, I was a little worried about staying here. What I found was that the hotel was about what I expected. It's several years old, and well used. It's noisy on a holiday weekend with lots of kids. Our room was old, although it did have a new LG flat screen tv. It was... More

Our family of 3 visited for one night in early August 2014 and we not very pleased. For the price of the deluxe room I was expecting more. The furnishing were not very nice, linens were worn and the pillows were terribly cheap and also worn. The indoor pool area was not very clean and the hot tub was Filthy.... More

Thanks for taking the time to leave a review. I appreciate your comments and wanted to let you know that we are indeed painting the building in places where the paint has peeled. We had noticed this issue as well and our maintenance staff was not able to paint before the busy season, unfortunately. As far as the room accommodations,... More

I love to write a review especially when I see negative ones left for this place !!! Where do I start hmmmm Well my room that we had was clean, roomy, and plenty of space. I paid for the $129.00 room for the Queen Size Beds (2) with the pillow top mattress. Well worth the little extra comfort. We had... More

Thank you for taking the time to leave such a positive review! Thanks for sticking up for our breakfast in our buffet! We do get many compliments on how the buffet is so good! I enjoy it myself a little too much sometimes! I do want to clarify that we are no longer associated with Frosty's Fun Center. A family... More

I had an Angus burger and fries. 7.95. The burger was good and fries were nice and crispy. Too many to eat. The meal was big enough for a full sized man. The Lodge is dated and we didn't stay the night. They have a buffet for dinner but we never tried it.

Hotel is old and dated, light switch on wall not working.clean to some extent but found old coffee grounds in coffee maker. Bed is so uncomfortable that sleeping on floor was considered. Breakfast buffet was limited not appealing. For the cost it was really disappointing will not stay there again

I was reading through the reviews prior to my visit, so I was a little apprehensive, but overall I was really pleased! The people were friendly, the room was very clean, and it was really close to Holiday World. My fiance and I really enjoyed our little get away to Santa Claus Indiana and we'll be sure to return soon!

I'm not sure how I feel about Santa's Lodge. I wasn't overly impressed especially considering they're one of the few places you can stay in Santa Claus. The room was average. The bed was average. The TV was old. The wifi was so-so. When we checked in and went to our room, there was no running water. After calling the... More

This place is disgusting! We stayed in the back where the paint is peeling and there was a smell stale cigarettes, the room was dirty, dusty and completely outdated....for $166 a night! I may have been less disappointed if I'd only paid $40. You are paying for proximity and the name and it is NOT worth it! Stay in Jasper,... More
