The location is wonderful! But the Lodge and Restaurant just are not. The Lodge room was shabby. The beds were cheap and uncomfortable. The shower felt flimsy. The bathroom door didn't lock. Sad, but true.

Heard about this place and we wanted to try the restaurant for lunch. The lodge and grounds are lovely. The dining room is spacious, but lacks atmosphere. The menu is varied, however while all of our group found the food to be quite edible, it was sadly uninspired. Manager told us he is new and is working on improvements, so...

I am a native Floridian and I have traveled a lot. This is an iconic landmark that I just had to visit on my recent trip across the panhandle. Well, it looks good from the outside and, in fact, the best part of the place is outside, that part run by the State Park Service. The boat ride was excellent,...

First, the positives. The grounds are beautiful. The setting so close to the springs is amazing. The views and photographs from the boat and lodge are breathtaking. The lobby and fireplace are period and restored nicely. The marble staircase is vintage, as is the old elevator. Now the not-so-positives. When we arrived, the desk had no record of our reservation....

If you are looking for an "unplugged" experience, look no further. Away from suburbs, construction, and roads, the lodge lends itself to reflective thinking, reading, or just being. Takes you back pleasantly to a day gone by.

Lodge is located in the centre of the park. You can have nice boat tours into the wild where we saw alligators, turtles, manatees, snakes and lots of birds. We arrived late in the evening and wanted to eat. Although we came 5 minutes before the closing of the restaurant they gladly agreed to serve us dinner. Just for our...

You might be fortunate to get restaurant service, other tables including mine were left sipping table water judiciously the stave off dehydration during and 3-hour dinner! 2 weeks later I'm still requesting the reversal of a fraudulent 2nd night charge to my credit card! "sorry" is a word often used here and is descriptive the operation in general. A memorable...

We really enjoyed our stay here. The Lodge is a beautiful property. We stayed in the Jessie Ball duPont, which is I think the best room in the place. It faces the spring and has a really comfortable four-poster bed. Right now the camellias and azaleas are blooming and the maples are leafing out. We saw over a dozen manatees...

what a grand old dame she is! Decked out in Tennessee marble, “heart” cypress, original Art Deco ironworks, a fireplace the size of Cleveland, and painted wildlife motifs on the lobby ceiling, the lodge is like a step back in time. Since we’d arrived in late afternoon, we still had time to take a 45-minute boat tour down the river...

This hotel suited us perfectly, Its beautifully maintained, built in 1937, very atmospheric. The elevator is a gem. The lobby and setting is exquisite. Not very suitable for people who love total luxury although we were very comfortable. Restaurant had delish breakfast and acceptable dinners. Friendly, hardworking and helpful staff.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Lodge at Wakulla Springs is located in the Wakulla Springs State Park near historic Tallahassee, Florida. Considered a Florida architectural landmark the Lodge has been on the grounds since 1937 and is featured, along with the nearly 6,000 acre park and river, on the National Register of Historic Places. Surrounded by canopies of oak, hickory, and beech trees, the natural springs, and Florida wildlife, the Lodge offers an old southern feel and a peaceful getaway for family vacations and reunions, weddings anniversaries, conferences, and other special events. The Lodge also is a perfect retreat for artists, writers, or those that just want to get away from it all. Guests will be inspired by nature's beauty and serenity inside of any one of the 27 guest rooms which overlook the springs, park, and courtyard. In keeping with the Lodge atmosphere there are no televisions in the rooms. ... more   less
