After having been ousted at10:30 am in the morning on a day of a wedding, from Oak Park Inn, this hotel took us in early, gave us adjacent rooms, and let us stay late on departure due to Christening at Church... Both were very much appreciated a midst our frustrations... Both rooms were fine and the staff was very helpful...... More

I have stayed at The Lodge numerous times and have never once seen a bug in the room. The pool is very lovely. The rent is very affordable, I rented weekly each time. The Sagebrush is a neat little tourist attraction right next door to The Lodge. It is a steakhouse. then right down the road is a Fat Buddies... More

The positive: • Room rate was about $62.00 (after the taxes); • Location was within walking distance to a steak house restaurant and a convenience store. • Staff were friendly; • Air conditioner was good and cold; not sure about the heater; • Light breakfast is served from 7-9am. We ended up eating at Joey's Pancake House (very good) in... More

Cigarette burns everywhere--sheets, pillows, curtains, chairs, on the tv, on side of tub was riddled with them--smelled like a stale ashtray. We would sleep in our car before staying here again!!!!! Beds were low to ground and hard as a rock. No hot water in the morning. Room was... More

This lodge has been around and apparently through many renovations. The beds leave much to be desired. They are so firm and low to the ground. The sinks are definitely dated and has cracks in the porcelain. The Staff is very friendly.
