We liked everything about this hotel. The price was reasonable, all areas were very clean, the parking spaces are wide so you don't bump another car getting luggage in and out. We loved the lodge decor and the office set up in our room. The breakfast was fresh. Everything worked in the fitness center and the pool setting was inviting... More

The good: Staff was very friendly at checkin. They had chips & salsa in the common area around 5:00. The woman at the front said they did this on weekdays. Plenty of breakfast options. Waffles, eggs with cheese & ham mixed in, fresh fruit, real oatmeal w/all the fixings... We had a poolside room. It's definitely a bit noisy, but... More

This was the first time we had stayed here and were well pleased. The front desk attendants were very friendly and very helpful. Our room had the North woods décor including four boat paddles on our wall. The room was large and the bed very comfortable. We used the hot tub and pool. The temperature of the pool was perfect....

Beautiful lodge with a northwest woods feel to enjoy an outstanding breakfast. Front desk superb, helpful in every respect. Rave reviews for the rooms. Location close to interstates yet set in an almost woodsy area. Highly recommend.

This lodge is beautiful. We felt we were in a huge log cabin. We swam in the pool, played board games in the lobby, and even walked across the street to get pie. It was close to restaurants and the highway. The breakfast was delicious and included many options. The only interesting situation we had was that we asked for... More

Driving home from a vacation. This was a stopover for us. We originally booked a night at the Super 8 across the street but when we got to Super 8 there were no rooms available. Went to Wildwood Lodge and we were immediately impressed with it! Price was cheaper than Super 8. Friendly staff. Breakfast was excellent and rooms and... More
