We purchased a vacation weekend through Groupon, which sounded magical with a stay at Santa's Lodge (including breakfast with Santa), visit to Santa's Candy Castle and tour through lighted campground. While we called shortly after another friend of ours did to reserve the rooms, they were able to get a family suite for the same price that we paid for a standard room, which was very small. We had heard that a family that went the weekend before had a bad dinner, but our dinner and breakfast wasn't bad - we didn't get to eat in the restaurant (I'm assuming because of the large # of people who purchased the Groupon package) but it was a traditional Christmas meal that wasn't bad, and buffet breakfast was the same. The pool was packed with kids, and there was a hot tub, and the hotel is decorated with Christmas stuff, but we were not overly impressed. Santa excited the kids! Rooms need updated and bathroom should have been cleaned better, took awhile to check in, but staff all seemed courteous.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Everyday is a Holiday when you stay at Santa’s Lodge. You’ll be welcomed at Santa’s Lodge with a vaulted lobby soaring 37 feet into the Southern Indiana skyline. The hand-hewn timbers are actually from the barn that stood on this same site in 1883. The beautiful cedar and oak wood creates a natural setting for our antique Christmas decorations including our Canadian horse-drawn sleigh! Our year-round Christmas décor and lodge setting will surround you with a sense of warmth and pleasure through our 170 guestrooms and suites.Located about a half mile away, we are the closest hotel to Holiday World and Splashin' Safari, home to three world class roller coasters and the number 2 water park in the world! We have a putt-putt mini golf course and arcade right across the street at Frosty's Fun Center. Our shelter house is located right next to the playground for a great picnic opportunity. Take time in the morning to relax on our deck overlooking the lake while eating breakfast from St. Nick's Restaurant.Our Family suites allow the parents to have a little privacy while vacationing with the kids in addition to giving you a little leg room to relax and spend quality time together. ... more less
