Hotel was a quiet place and the morning breakfasts were very good... continental with waffles. But no fruits. There was a funky smell in the upper lobby and hallway, I suspect came from the fountain and the pool area. The rooms were clean and the staff was OK. The breakfast lady and the cleaning staff had smiles, but the check... More

Whitefish Lodge and Suites was a nice place ... typical lodge decor. Views were nice. However, it was very noisy. Had to request twice out of three nights to get help for the running in the hallway and loud talking. Other relatives in the same place had to also call. Beds were comfortable but no choice of pillows and the... More

We were visiting family in the area and the location was perfect for us. There aren't many hotels in Crosslake. We've tried the other two and had been so disappointed in both we were looking to stay further away rather than return to either. So we figured we'd give Whitefish Lodge a try. And we were so glad we did!... More

This hotel is simply fantastic. We stayed in two of the large suites. They are located "underground", a level beneath the entrance. Some benefits include easy access from the underground parking garage and a back entrance directly to the pool/dock. The rooms are both very spacious, one of them even had a full kitchen and washer/dryer. The restaurant also has... More

This hotel is very clean and relaxing, and the staff is very friendly and helpful. They have a nice sized pool room and a giant hot tub, in the pool room there is also a sauna. It is walking distance from the lake and many restaurants and stores.

I booked a room on April 10th for a 2 night stay on July 4th & 5th to attend an anniversary celebration. Whitefish Lodge had no problem charging my account that day for a "deposit". However, I later learned we would not be able to come on July 4th and called to cancel that night’s stay. I was told there... More

I appreciate you taking the time to post a review. When you made your reservation for the 4th of July weekend you had originally made your reservation for 2 nights so our staff did not inform you of the 2 night minimum as you had already fulfilled the requirement. Crosslake is a vacation destination especially during major summer holidays. Our... More

Stayed there this past Friday night. Hotel is beautiful, however this was not a pleasant stay. Walls are very thin. We heard the TV in the room next to us. We could also hear the people talking clearly in the room next to us. The halls are very noisy all night long. It sounds like the people talking in the... More

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review regarding your past stay with us at Whitefish Lodge. We are extremely sorry for the fall you had in one of our showers. We use these soap dispensers in replacement of individual size soaps, shampoos and conditioners to help reduce the environmental impact of the tiny plastic bottles that go... More

Beautiful place we were staying on business and checking out for our daughters upcoming wedding. The place is decorated beautifully if you can get past the cleaning carts lined up when you first walk in. The biggest complaint was that even though we paid more for a suite upgrade the bed was one of the worst we've ever slept on.... More

This place is set up really nice. You walk in the door and it's decked out like a hunting lodge. Complete with a giant moose head above the fireplace. The room we stayed in was actually super nice and it had a great fireplace and interesting decor. The first night here I slept like a log. Great comfortable bed nice... More

We were on the fence last time (please see my last review) but this visit will be our last. Picked up a last minute deal that they sent via email so we expected the hotel to be full.

I appreciate your feedback on your past stay with us. I want to apologize for the disruptions you had during your stay. It can be difficult for our staff to control noise levels especially during a busy Spring break weekend. We have passed your review onto our staff to see and have implemented some new policies for our staff to... More
