The folks at the Deer Lodge are very friendly, knowledgeable about the area and welcoming. They were very attentive to my needs as a traveler and were always up for comfortable conversation. The hotel could use some modernizing (in certain areas) if modern is what you're looking for. However, I quite enjoyed the old school feel of this place, this... More

Stayed for New Years. Booked room in October and secured with a credit card. They changed the room from one to two and then at check in they had given away those rooms and gave us the rooms that smell like mold from the old carpets and the only heat in the rooms is from electric heaters that rattle and...

Our family stayed for 2 months at the Deer Lodge. They were so completely accommodating to kids and pets. The owners, managers and all employees treated us like family. Being longer term tenants gave us the opportunity to really appreciate the people and the place. We would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for an 'in the mean time'... More

The staff was always friendly and helpful, and made you feel really welcome. It is like a little piece of paradise with the beautiful gardens, as well as close to shopping and the... More

We stayed there for 2 nights for a family wedding in Mill Bay. Staff address questions immediately and are very helpful. They have lovely gardens and beautiful views front and back. They have a small balcony with each room that is private and enjoyable to see the grounds and relax. Our room was large and very comfortable. We enjoyed our... More

Recently I had a rather lengthy and pleasurable stay at Deer Lodge. All staff members were very friendly, accommodating and professional. I had a fabulous ocean view from my private balcony which I'll never forget. You can easily sense the pride of ownership and accomplishment of staff members as the grounds and gardens are absolutely beautiful! Thank you Deer Lodge:)... More

GORGEOUS views, and the staff were super helpful!! We had our wedding in Mill Bay and some of our guests stayed there, and all of them had nothing but great things to say. It's very quiet and peaceful, rooms are a good size!

I booked 3 rooms for myself and 2 out of town guests who were attending my son's wedding nearby. There were also a few guests at our son' wedding who also stayed here. Can't speak for them but for us it was a great experience. Sure, it's out of date somewhat but who cares. We were there to rest and... More

This motel/hotel is a place we use ONLY when our daughter who lives close, has an event and her beds are full. It really needs to be updated. It has n a lovely view however a lot of trees are too overgrown. The rooms are large, clean, and have a fireplace in them which would be cozy if it was... More
