The most interesting hotel experience ever

If star ranking was based on fascinating experience The Lodge would get five. We stayed with our 4 kids--12, 15, 17 and 23. The Lodge is part Bavarian hunting lodge, creepy movie set, run-down once-glam destination, and Disney attraction (although Disney couldn't make it as authentic if they... read more

...I have to give it 5 stars, because...the history of it, is, that... a German family did their best to replicate everything. Excellent reception, huge rooms, pet friendly, free parking - the pool and hot tub are a bonus. It is an older place. I love it.

I was DEVASTATED to hear The Lodge closed. It was sooooooo cool! My husband and I went there every Christmas and it was awesome! It used to have a spa, has an indoor pool, excellent brunch, and the rooms are so awesome! We always stayed in one of the lofts and it was so nice. I love the feel of... More

We loved the architecture and old world feel of this location. We would definitely stay here again. Exploring this hotel and conference center was fascinating.

I went there after work only to be thankful I didn't book anything. it was so very dirty dust clumps on the fake plants... More

My boss put us here because I found it cheap on the Internet. The bathroom was icky as can be. A dirty toilet, black mold under soap holder and bugs crawling around the toilet. I won't ever stay again. I emailed manager with pics and tried getting ahold of front desk and all it did was ring.

Went there looking for something unique and charming. Was all of that! Thrilled with the characteristics of old world charm. I doubt if there is another hotel like this one. Making it extra special. Too bad it is going to be changed. Glad we had the chance to experience. Thank you

The food is very good, although the sauce on the chicken Parmesan is a bit bland for me. Staff are very courteous and seem to be in too of things for the most part with the occasional momentary lack of attention. But they are humans. Brunch on Sunday is the best in the area In my opinion. They have it... More

Our flight out of the Quad Cities was cancelled so the airline put us up for the night. We had stayed here about 10 years ago and the place was run done then and by the looks of things it hasn't changed one bit. It's not worth the money it's old and dirty. We would have never stayed there except... More
