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

Stayed here with my son in September. Was the closest option to Holiday World & wanted a place w/ pool. Room was pretty average. Was most disappointed that we ate there for lunch & were eyeing the dinner menu, so came back for dinner, only to find it was buffet only. My 11 year old said his school lunch was... More

Wife and I lucked out and had the same back-to-back days off. Wife was in the Christmas mood, so choice was between Santa Claus (a 2-hour drive) and the Smokies (a 4-hour-plus driive, plus we've been there at least five times). Decided to do something different. In a travelling first for me, we were the ONLY people with reservations (Sunday,... More

First of all, I want to thank you for leaving such a thorough and honest review! You stated that you stayed in November, which is traditionally one of our slowest times of the year with Holiday World being closed and the Holidays not quite happening yet. This is why you were (almost!) alone in our large hotel. Trust me, there... More

Outdated hotel with a so-so restaurant. Not many choices as for hotels or food in Santa Claus. Close to all attractions and grocery store. Always seemed short of help. The longer you stay the better price you get. Also offered discounted tickets to Holiday World.

We stayed at Santa's lodge while visiting Holiday World's Halloween event. We got a great package deal that included tickets. Clean rooms, friendly staff, and convenient location. Restaurant had a nice breakfast buffet the next morning.

We stayed here during the fall-o-weekends at Holiday World. We paid $155 for a standard room with 4 tix to Holiday World, which is a great price and was overall a good value. However, based on the age of the rooms, and lack of amenities, I would say that without the ticket package, this hotel is way overpriced. It is... More

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!
