The Lodge on Lake Detroit is probably the nicest hotel in DL. The rooms are always spic and span and the grounds are the same. The staff is always so friendly and helpful we keep going back year after year. Our family uses it for a reunion site and we always have a great time staying there. There is a... More

We stayed 3 nights on points. Room was spacious, loved having the balcony. We were on the 3rd floor at the end, so nice location. All rooms are on the lake side. Ground floor rooms walk out to the beach/lawn - so enjoyed being on the top floor. Sink inside and outside of bathroom. Plugs in lamp so easy access... More

Great place to get away to enjoy the scenery and the quietness of northern MN. All rooms face the lake which make this spot even more amazing. Great beach and food as well. That is what makes this a great one stop location.

I've stayed at 4 hotels in town and this is the best. There are several small mom&pop hotels and then some of the major brands and not-so-major brands, but this one is the best. Great location and decor. Quiet which I need when working night shifts. Has everything I want and need.

Very nice hotel right on the lake. Close to everything in town, very clean and well kept. We didn't really use any facilities except for breakfast dining room which was also very clean and orderly. If you have kids request a first floor room and they can walk right out of room to the beach.

We return to this hotel every year for a Family Reunion (about 40 of us). The lodge is a great place for this as they have lots of different things to do to keep everyone entertained. Nice beach, great spa, very good breakfast, great fire pits and breath taking sunsets you can watch from your own balcony or the hotel... More

The Best Western Lodge was excellent in service, decor, accomodations, location, food quality, cleanliness, and amenites. The view by the Lake and its own beach is a great addition to the great time we had there.
