I think they need some competition in this price range! I loved Waimea but did not enjoy sleeping at the Lodge. First impression was not good. The lamp shade was dirty and stained as was the upholstered chair. Bedspread was the type that camouflages the dirt and was dark and dated. I pulled it right off and found the sheets were soiled, too. Carpet was old and dirty. We were on ground floor and woke up during night to thumping of guests above.
Beware: Small 2"X2" label posted at bottom left corner of bathroom mirror states that linens and towels are changed every 3 days (which only served to make me wonder if the bed had been changed from previous guest). No mention of this was made at check in and no "green" conservation cards were displayed in room. There were no towels in room when we arrived so I know we had clean ones because I got them from housekeeping. I wore flip flops in the tub. It was either stained or dirty.
On a positive note, the towels were thick and nice and the water was hot. Shower curtain was clean. Other than tub, bathroom surfaces were clean. The staff was friendly and complimentary coffee was offered in the office. The location is great. It is within walking distance of shopping and restaurants.
