We had originally booked rooms there because we were attending a wedding in the vicinity but when we were unable to attend the wedding, they refused to let us cancel. We were forced to choose some inconvenient weekend in accordance with their openings. I was willing to make the best of it but we were wholly unprepared for the disappointment that awaited us. For being so far away from stores, restaurants etc, the lodge has no access to snacks, pop or toiletries. They don't even offer you ice water if you're thirsty after the restaurant closes. There's literally nothing to drink. We ate at the restaurant and it was overpriced, about $20-25 per plate for poor quality food. I've had tastier food for a lot less. The food consistency is soggy and overcooked with not much flavor. The downstairs family area is nice but unfortunately you can't sleep there as that is the only spacious area. Our room had lots of dead flies and it was the size of a closet. I've lived in apartments that had bigger bathrooms. There is literally no room to turn around there. Worse, I could hear every creak from the hallway and neighboring rooms. We ended up having to leave at midnight due to our child being unable to sleep there and we were still charged full price as if we'd stayed there all night. I was willing to pay a reduced price to reflect our use of the room but full price was unfair. Our impression is that their goal is making money at all costs and either way, I was stuck paying far too much for a bad experience. I won't ever be back and will tell others who are traveling there to stay somewhere else.
