Spent the nite here in Santas Lodge after a full day at Holiday World, we checked in late because after Holiday world we went to Denny's in Dale to eat, wish some places in Santa Claus stayed open later! We had a suite, it was clean and comfortable. We used the indoor pool and hot tub in the morning and... More

Stayed here one night and it was nice. Of course it is Christmas themed but that was expected and nice. Room was clean and lodge was as well. The back of the lodge could use paint and a little attention but not anything that discouraged us. We ate breakfast at the restaurant located here and it was good. Only complaint... More

Holiday World is one of the best family oriented theme parks in the country and Santa's Lodge is in my opinion the nicest and most convenient place to stay. It has both an indoor (including spa) and outdoor pool, a rock climb, a zip line, a restaurant and a great lobby. It is only a few blocks from Holiday World.... More

Awful. Dirty chairs. Dirty beds. No mattress on one of the pullout couches. Dirty pillows. Wouldn't recommend for a family visit. Just because it's the closest to the park. Don't let that fool you. Didn't meet our standards. Staff attitude was not welcoming nor did it make us want to stay or come back. Only upside was that the pools... More

After reading A LOT of reviews, I had previously booked a room @ Baymont Inn in Dale. The thought of driving even 10 minutes after playing all day was horrible, so I called Santa's Lodge to see if they had availability, which they did! We got a great Family Suite. My hubby & I got a large Bedroom to ourselves... More

We only stayed one night. We were in town for a family reunion and not like everyone else headed to Holiday World. I knew it would be expensive, due to the 4th of July weekend, but I still think it was over priced. With that price I believe a free breakfast was in order. The lobby is super cute decorated...

Reviews a bit inconsistent so was unsure of what we would find, but we enjoyed our stay. It is just a minute from Holiday World, so very convenient. We only spent the night after a long day at Holiday World and left early in the morning, so not a lot of time spent there. We had 2 rooms but they... More

Little expensive and the beds are uncomfortable. It is so close to Holiday World that is kind of makes it ok. I have stayed there 2 times now, but I might look for somewhere different next year. I would have thought that for the price they would have offered a free breakfast.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Everyday is a Holiday when you stay at Santa’s Lodge. You’ll be welcomed at Santa’s Lodge with a vaulted lobby soaring 37 feet into the Southern Indiana skyline. The hand-hewn timbers are actually from the barn that stood on this same site in 1883. The beautiful cedar and oak wood creates a natural setting for our antique Christmas decorations including our Canadian horse-drawn sleigh! Our year-round Christmas décor and lodge setting will surround you with a sense of warmth and pleasure through our 170 guestrooms and suites.Located about a half mile away, we are the closest hotel to Holiday World and Splashin' Safari, home to three world class roller coasters and the number 2 water park in the world! We have a putt-putt mini golf course and arcade right across the street at Frosty's Fun Center. Our shelter house is located right next to the playground for a great picnic opportunity. Take time in the morning to relax on our deck overlooking the lake while eating breakfast from St. Nick's Restaurant.Our Family suites allow the parents to have a little privacy while vacationing with the kids in addition to giving you a little leg room to relax and spend quality time together. ... more   less
