Pool was great for our kids age 2 and 5. Only downfall was slide was closed so you might want to check if it is open before you go. Breakfast was great, real eggs, biscuits and sausage gravy, and cereal.

Great staff, love the pool/water slide area. The hot tub is decent sized as well. Includes a continental breakfast with a large eating area. Lots of restaurant and activity information available in the lobby.

My mom and I stayed here as one of our stops on a roadtrip and were very happy with our stay. The staff were very accommodating when we called to say that we would be checking in late. The room was clean, and the lobby was quite cozy and comfortable as well. Breakfast was in a cute dining room (there's... More

I have stayed here numerous times for business but this last stay was disappointing. The towels felt like sandpaper - don't know why that has changed. The breakfast choices were disappointing. They had no fresh fruit (well they had apples but there was nothing fresh about them). It would have been nice if they would have had bananas and perhaps... More

Dear Lea, Funny you should mention breakfast, we have been working for the last two weeks on revamping the breakfast. Hoping to find a new supplier for the eggs(what we have now are real eggs cooked in Sioux Falls and packaged for us, we then reheat them) and offer someother new options. Our goal for breakfast is fresh, health and... More

My husband and I stayed in a newly remodeled room. It was large and clean. Our room looked onto the courtyard, which was pretty on a winter night. The pool looked like an excellent place for a family get-together. The Lodge served a very nice breakfast. I could use the free wifi. It's close to the airport. There are places... More

We stayed here on our way to Florida. This hotel was close to the interstate. The property & building looked in good shape. The hotel staff was friendly and courteous. Our room was spacious and appeared to have been recently renovated. They had the standard hot breakfast fare. This was a great place to stay and we will be staying... More

From check in to check out we received excellent service. The room was newly painted and carpeted, clean and cozy. King size bed was very comfortable. The large bathroom was very clean as well. Breakfast the next morning was in a very nicely decorated old country kitchen that offered a large variety of breakfast items to eat. I would definitely... More
