This was our second time at The Lodge. Again we found it to be extremely pleasant. Very comfortable room, service excellent, lake views, sunsets, indoor pool and hot tub, excellent breakfast, and good location. Pub food very good. Excellent restaurant nearby for dinner.

Stayed one night with a friend on our way to a conference. The physical setup of all rooms with a lake view immediately lets you feel that you are on vacation.

We have brought our family to The Lodge twice in the past 3 years. We highly recommend The Lodge for a family get together. Our experience has very rewarding each time we brought our children and grandchildren here. The complimentary breakfasts are awesome!

I love the LODGE ON LAKE DETROIT; but the noise levels for such a tranquil place have been concerning. This is too bad being it is just so beautiful. If there could be more mindfulness to the SPA experience and noise equation, it would be much more pleasant.

This hotel is a gem. Every aspect is pretty much perfect. The staff is welcoming and capable, the setting on Detroit Lake is truly beautiful and every night, you fall asleep feeling safe and comfortable. We have been there the past three years for WeFest and cannot imagine staying anywhere else.

Had a great stay as all rooms over look the lake -- very relaxing we did encourage some friends to stay at the hotel and they were also very satisfied. The staff at the hotel were very helpful and would go out of their way to be of assistance.

The stay was great and relaxing. Staff was very friendly and helpful. They had everything ready for us when we arrived so we didn't have to wait for them to find a room that was vacant. Would definitely stay again and the staff there should train the staff at some of the other Best Western locations

I've stayed here four times. Staff and facilities are great. I've done winter, fall, spring, and now summer. Summer is the best. There is a great restaurant called fireside about a quarter mile away. I need 200 characters so banana banana banana
