I've stayed twice this summer at the Whitefish Lodge and have found it to be a very good choice. The hotel is similar to what you would expect at a nice Hampton or Holiday Inn but with much nicer decor (think northwoods cutesy). The hotel is located in a quiet spot and the bedding is very nice, not the typical... More

The lodge was beautiful and well-kept. A nice continental breakfast plus Restaurants within walking distance. My only complaint was the noisy party group that went on until 2am each night. The lone front desk guy couldn't do much so he had to call the police who were slow to respond. I'd go back but try to avoid the weekend crowds.

Great experience! Great service at our late-check in, room was very nice and roomy, and clean! The in room micowave and mini-fridge was an added bonus. Nice lobby to escape to and relax in. Great complimentary morning breakfast. NICE place - not noisy, loved the up north atmosphere!

We got one of the Star Tribune "STeals" coupons, so we only spent about $65/night -- which at that price made our stay an exceptionally good deal...really nice pool and sauna. We had a jacuzzi suite -- everything was clean and well maintained. The rooms all have kind of a cabin theme -- knotty pine doors and funiture that looks... More

We had an incredible weekend at the Whitefish Lodge! Thanks in part to the large room that accommodated our family of 5 and the superior staff that took excellent care of our large group. We will definitely be back!

Last night, Tuesday, I was informed that my uncle passed away in a car accident and I needed to make the trip down to be with family for the funeral, leaving tonight.

First off this hotel was hard to find, no big sign on Country Road 3 to even indicate you were close. Our room looked very nice from the surface, but when I went to put my son (he's 2) on the toliet I noticed that the housekeeper hadn't bothered to wipe the lip of the toliet because there was urine...
