Everything was great.. Small hotel which has everything you need to just enjoy your stay. Closed to everything. Staff was friendly and there to help. The hair dryer was missing from our room, but the staff found one for us. I have stayed at this hotel before and will stay again.

Very friendly staff. Our room was very large with both in and out of bathroom sinks/vanity - very nice for families. Our room had a cozy fireplace and front and back entrances with a small balcony for relaxing. Lodge is far enough off of the Parkway to offer some peace and quiet, but close enough to walk back and forth... More

I'm not picky and typically look at the brighter side of things, but I was very disappointed with the hotel. Room 213 was where my wife and I stayed and there were roaches. The location great and the people friendly, but the hotel has a lot of work to do before I would stay there again. It felt dirty, looked... More

We also enjoyed our stay, the beds were among the most comfortable, and close to restaurants and attractions. Nice private porch, a breakfast of cereal, coffee, juice, doughnuts and muffins. Mary, the manager, was top-notch!

The rooms were spacious and the beds were very comfy and the place was clean. The room was dated, 1970s and a little worn but CLEAN! It was in a great location, a block off the parkway keeping it quite peaceful yet able to walk to anything you wanted. Quaint setting, the balconies overlook the pool and a hillside by... More

This was an unexpectedly nasty experience. The room was dirty, the sink was plugged and the room smelled. Pool was advertised as heated - it wasn't. There was no WiFi- they hijack their WiFi from the surrounding establishments. Drunk teenagers were hanging out in the parking lot harassing the guests and the staff thought it was funny. The staff was... More

Stayed with friends in the 2 bedroom suite overlooking the pool from Sept 7th to the 12th. Immediately on entering I could see the worn out carpets and very old poor excuse for a couch in the shared livingroom area. TV sets are old as is the air conditioning, but worked well. The free WiFi did not work the whole... More

My wife and I stayed here twice before and had been pleased so I booked a two bedroom suite for ourselves and three traveling companions for a five night stay from Sep 7 to Sep 12th. The first issue was the toilet roll holder that wasn't attached to the wall in the one bathroom. As soon as it was mentioned... More
