Had a very nice and quiet Stay, Food was excellent, the room was very clean and nice and quiet, the pool was very nice, the Jacuzzi was lukewarm, wish it woulda been hotter and the jets working but great stay. Definitely will be making several stays here especially for the price and closeness to Holiday World. :)

I stayed here this weekend with my family. This place is not worth the money. The room was clean except the tub, it had brown soap scum around the edges. The hot tub was only 74 degrees and the jets wouldn't work so basically it was a Luke warm tub. The pool water was cold. The restaurant on site didn't... More

The hotel room was pretty out dated. It cost us $125.00 to stay one night. The beds were hard making it tough to sleep on. The pool was cold from what my kids said and the Hot Tub chlorine was really strong. Dinner downstairs was okay the food across the street at Frosty's was excellent.

We arrived at the lodge on Friday and was very impressed with the lodge . We had dinner with Santa and story time with Mrs Claus and milk and cookies . Our room was nice and the pool was heated. We purchased the package deal and hot dinner and breakfast. We would definitely come again

Our family stayed in the lodge during the holiday season. It was very warm & inviting place. There are two large Santas to greet you. The lobby decor will put you in the Christmas spirit. The rooms are comfortable and very clean. St. Nick's restaurant is downstairs from the lobby. A great place to get in the spirit.

Stayed at this lodge during a weekend Holiday World trip. Two main perks are the location (you could feasibly walk to the park) and the fact that a decent restaurant is located on site. The latter is a huge perk because Santa Claus, Indiana, does not offer many restaurant options, and when we asked at reception where people eat in... More

What an AMAZING Place. My family had such a wonderful time. The favorites were Story Time with Mr. and Mrs. Claus and cookies and milk afterwards, the Christmas crafts in the lobby and the indoor pool. We booked a package which included so many free things for my daughter. the only con I had was they ran out of food... More

This is an older hotel but who cares. Any question I had about things around town they knew the answer or called to find it. It had dinner and breakfast, buffet style included in the package. It had kid crafts, Mr & Mrs Claus photos and reading a bedtime story, a pool, beds, tv and a shower. Kids were happy... More

My son gifted us with a weekend here right after Thanksgiving. We were part of a group of 16--grandparents, parents, and kids. We stayed in adjoining suites, with 2 full beds, a pull-out couch, and an in-room whirlpool tub. We had 2 TVs, a coffee maker, refrigerator, and microwave. The kids enjoyed the indoor pool and the opportunity to feed... More
