I purchased (2) two night package through Groupon. Looking at their website and reading some of the reviews, I was leery of staying, but was a great deal through Groupon..So I booked the rooms. I wanted to check with the General Manager about some of the negative comments I had read, but in 3 weeks of leaving messages, never heard... More

My husband & I recently stayed at The Lodge in a king suite which consisted of 2 rooms (living area & kitchenette) and bedroom plus adjacent bath. It was definitely one of the smallest, most cramped spaces we've stayed in that qualifies as a 2 room suite. There was a clearance of perhaps 6 inches between the end of the... More

Great service, clean and comfy. Nice pool and hot tub. Would stay again. Free cookies and lemonade, beautiful cozy lobby. Great $6 top shelf martini.

In town for a conference, we stayed at The Lodge at Sierra Blanca due to its close proximity to the convention center...short walk across the parking lot. Part of our group stayed in a standard room, which seemed nice enough but not exceptional for the price. We upgraded, for a nominal fee (perhaps because it was a last-minute change?) to... More

We stayed in the double-queen room. There was nothing too special about the room, but it was clean, had a beautiful view, and came with a microwave and mini fridge.The beds are comfortable and the tub is large. We brought our 2 year old, and there were many other families in the lobby this morning at breakfast. Speaking of, the... More

Comfy bed, good breakfast, the cook would make whatever you wanted if it wasn't on the buffet. Room is big, with sofa, chair, TV and fireplace. Jacuzzi tub. Room was clean, staff was friendly. It was what I would expect from any hotel of this sort. Nice balcony but we were overlooking the parking lot.

I've stayed at this hotel every October for the past 5 years, and it is slipping BIG-TIME. The furniture is old, the carpet is stained, the staff is unfriendly, and it's wasting away. If you could have seen this place 5 years ago, you wouldn't believe what it looks like now. The wi-fi wasn't working, because of my room location;... More

What a disappointment. First and foremost the fact that the staff and management don't try to remedy problems is inexcusable. The carpet in our king suite was dirty and worn. The couch was stained and smelled bad. The chair was stained as well. We did not sit on any furniture. The free wi-fi didn't work due to the "location of... More

The Lodge looks like an upscale resort from the photos, the outside of the building & even the lobby and with the golf course & spa, one would think it is, but the rooms are small and, while clean, somewhat worn. The buffet breakfast was marginal. The omelet station was nice, but the rest of the food was mediocre and... More
