Brief one night stay. Lodge is old and needs updating. Room was extremely damp even with air conditioning. Wall paper, carpet, etc. needs to be updated. Bathrooms very small. TV fuzzy reception. The beds are hard. No Internet connection need to walk outside to get the phone to work. No refrigerator or microwave in room. Did not use the indoor... More

We had two family cabins. They are in need of updating and cleaning (cobwebs on windows/screens, etc). Disappointed that we had to be out by 11 am this year instead of 12 noon. The two rooms at the Inn were nice and convenient to the pool. We are planning to return next year.

This was OK for a state park lodge. There are multiple common areas to relax, watch tv and chat with friends in. There's free coffee (but it does run out), nice outdoor garden, nearby hiking trails, plenty of parking. We looked at the restaurant but choose not to eat there.

Stay wasn't bad. They told us that our cabins wouldn't be ready until 4:00. And after allowing us to get into 1 the other 3 were not done until right at 4. So if that pattern holds true make sure to have other things to do if getting there hours before 4:00. The cabins were all supposed to be together... More

Stayed here for two nights in a king room in the annex. Rooms in the annex are bigger. Room was clean and I love that they no longer use those heavy bedspreads. Cute decor. We had a nice view of the woods. Room was improved over out last stay . Staff at front desk was great. Maids were not friendly... More

Cabins were unsanitary. Found a bar of soap put back in the box with fecal matter on it. Shampoo and conditioner bottles were half full, obviosly used. Beer cans and water beds were under the bed. Rooms are very small. No grill or fire ring. A micro wave and a mini fridge is all. Would not recommend to anyone.

Thank you for taking the time to let us know how we are doing. I am sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your stay with us. Our lodge does use an environmentally friendly soap that naturally has brown specs throughout that can make it appear to have darker tint to it. Sorry we did not inform you of... More

Having never been to Brown County for a Mountain Bike Adventure, I opted to stay in the state park at Abe Martin Lodge. The location is great, beautiful and close to the trails. The hotel is not fancy, but it is homey and a great place to lay your head. Beyond that, we were allowed to take our bikes into... More

We have stayed in Brown County many times and also had made lots of visits to Brown County State park but never stayed at the Abe Martin lodge so we decided to give it a try. There were no issues booking the lodge rooms through the reservation system. I called the 800 number but you can also book on-line. It... More

We were very pleased; everything was perfect. The grounds are beautiful; room was clean; bed was very comfortable. Check-in and check-out both were very fast and efficient. Although this inn has been around for several decades, it is the people who make all the differences.

We drove down to Brown County to celebrate our thirtieth anniversary as it was the site of our honeymoon. The staff at the front desk was friendly and helpful. Even though the lobby was crowded with a bicycle tour group, check in was quick and extremely efficient. The room was clean, comfortable, quiet, and furnished in typical state park lodge... More
