Terrible experience. Will never stay here again. Would be much better to stay a little farther away than waste money on this place. We get there, our room is on third floor. Well another family is by elevator and warms us not to get on because it wasn't working that day. We like to have never found stairway. We finally... More

Upon arrival and driving to the back of the hotel, the peeling paint on the outside of the building was clue #1 that the hotel wasn't doing well. A lumpy bed, an old TV with a red cast to everything and lumpy pillows were further evidence that this is a hotel on the way out. It's a shame because it... More

We arrived at Santa's lodge about an hour before normal check in and we were greeted very warmly and was quickly checked in to our suite. The suite was outstanding very spacious and clean. Calls to the front desk were answered quickly and professionally. All of the staff we encountered was always smiling, friendly and helpful. The grounds were beautifully... More

We stayed here recently for a visit to Holiday World. The property is older, but it was sufficient for our visit. We had a standard 2 queen room (not deluxe, which includes a microwave and refrigerator). The sleeping area was roomy, but the bathroom was tiny - which was not a big deal, but is worth mentioning and since there... More

We arrived at the hotel following our visit to the nearby amusement park and were greeted nicely. We were told where our 2nd floor room was located orally but not given a map. The hotel has many corridors and finding the ONLY elevator was hard to do with out a map. When we went to breakfast at aprox. 8:45 the... More

Just throw a pillow in the parking lot because they may be softer then the beds. And bring your own plastic cover for the beds because they have none and the sheets don't stay on the beds. If you are queazy don't look at the mattresses. Bring candles, wipes, and spray so you can get the nasty smell out of... More

From what I've read, we seemed to be in the part of the hotel that wasn't completely updated. It was clean and comfortable but we had an ancient TV that had 25 channels and most of the picture didn't fit the screen. The microwave was INOP. WIFI was INOP as well. Not a dive but we felt slighted for the... More

The beds were very squeeky and loud, the pillows were flat, the toilet was broke, the sheets didn't fit on the bed and kept coming off, there was trash on the floor behind the beds, there was something smeared on the mirror and housekeeping never cleaned it off, housekeeping never fully restocked supplies (tissues, towels, etc.), and the buffet in...

This was the third time we have stayed here. Very friendly and helpful staff. Clean rooms, indoor and outdoor pool, great breakfast buffet in the restaurant, mini golf/ pizza shop/ ice cream next door within walking distance and pretty much right across the street from Holiday World. We really enjoy staying here.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Everyday is a Holiday when you stay at Santa’s Lodge. You’ll be welcomed at Santa’s Lodge with a vaulted lobby soaring 37 feet into the Southern Indiana skyline. The hand-hewn timbers are actually from the barn that stood on this same site in 1883. The beautiful cedar and oak wood creates a natural setting for our antique Christmas decorations including our Canadian horse-drawn sleigh! Our year-round Christmas décor and lodge setting will surround you with a sense of warmth and pleasure through our 170 guestrooms and suites.Located about a half mile away, we are the closest hotel to Holiday World and Splashin' Safari, home to three world class roller coasters and the number 2 water park in the world! We have a putt-putt mini golf course and arcade right across the street at Frosty's Fun Center. Our shelter house is located right next to the playground for a great picnic opportunity. Take time in the morning to relax on our deck overlooking the lake while eating breakfast from St. Nick's Restaurant.Our Family suites allow the parents to have a little privacy while vacationing with the kids in addition to giving you a little leg room to relax and spend quality time together. ... more   less
