Went here three times in three weeks for their happy hour. Food was amazing and super unique. Great IPA beers on tap. Always a favorite now every time we’re near San Carlos. The lasagna and the ultimate beer burger were out of this world. Staff spoke good English as well.

This hotel was full of charm! It's run by a lovely couple who ensure that you have a great time at their property. It's a very laid back town and great place to chill by the beach. The rooms were clean and spacious. The property was lovely with great music always playing. The burgers and craft beers were spectacular! I would definitely come again!

We booked based on the great reviews on TA. This is not a 5 ratings establishment! A very glib manager over sold a lot of what was going on at the Lodge and seemed quiet surprised by our fully paid in advance reservation. It is modest establishment but the pricing is not for what you get. Lumpy uncomfortable bed. Threads bare grey linen. The food was a huge let down after been told how unique the cuisine was. Chilli poppers are quiet straight forward but they had no flavour or heat. There was a band that was supposed to play at 7 and Salsa lessons we going to be offered. This sounded great we made sure we were back in time and a couple of locals arrived. The service was slow due to the socialising with friends. We waited patiently for the band to start playing. They eventually started playing at 9.30 by which time we had given up. We then had this music loud in our room till midnight. The hotel side of the business seems to be an inconvienience to to local activities.
