This hotel needs some competition. We stayed over the July 4th holiday and were terribly disappointed. If you’re staying at the lodge to visit Lanier World, you can’t beat the location. It is literally the only hotel in the area and offers free transport to and from the park’s gate. We also had a number of good meals at Bullfrogs... More

Hello, I would like to reach out and apologize for your experience – this is not our standard, and we do not want any of our guests to have a stay like you describe. You are correct that our lodge pool was closed for a time due to an issue with another guest making it unusable. As soon as it... More

It was a great experience. By the second day employees knew us by name. Everyone was always happy and friendly. The Breakfast buffet was exceptionally good. I would have to rate this resort at the top of my list for favorite resorts. We definitely would stay here again if the opportunity allows.

We came to Lake Lanier because we heard it was beautiful, and it is. But this place is a living nightmare if you want peace and quiet, and if I had been more mindful and saw it had a waterpark, I would have steered clear. Screaming kids everywhere, and self-centered parents who are not paying attention. Our first night in... More

This resort is really geared to families. The steps and elevations all over the property make walking for seniors a challenge. My unit was listed as ground floor which turned out to be a flight down from the parking area with no elevator. Several of the listed restaurants are within the water park which requires a drive or trolley then... More

We went to Lake Lanier for a birthday celebration with all the family and lots of friends. The lodge is old and the rooms are dark. There isn't much to do except swim in the lake or rent a boat and do the same. The staff of the lodge is very friendly, especially the valet folks. There isn't much opportunity... More

Lanier's Legacy Lodge was a nice quiet stay for us. Having stayed at Disney World's Wilderness Lodge numerous times, Legacy has captured much of that feel in both the design of the main lodge (hotel) and the separate villa's in which we stayed. Friendly staff all around. would recommend for short stays unless you're a golfer or boater, then stay... More

We had a great time at this beautiful resort. Service was top notch. Everyone we encountered in both the resort and at Lanier World was friendly and happy to anticipate our needs. Beautiful rooms with super comfortable beds, great breakfast and fabulous pool.
