Their website states right on the home page "The Lodge at Leathem Smith is the epitome of a lavish getaway"....maybe back in the 70's. We paid $150 a night for a double queen room, which had furniture from the 70's. The bathroom was disgusting...there was hair all the floor behind the door, the shower curtain was moldy and the tub drain didn't do it's job. All of the bedding was very old, sheets had rips in them. The staff were all very nice, but we would never stay here again.

My husband and I booked a last minute weekend getaway. With many resorts booked we were lucky to get a room here as they were also at full capacity. - our room was a deluxe suite, very spacious! Enjoyed having a kitchenette and living room area with private bedroom. We did not use the jacuzzi but it was quite large, easily fits two adults. Two bathroom sinks was also nice! - nice laminate floor but very dirty. I don’t think it was swept or mopped for a while. We had to clean several cobwebs and dirt off the floor. - pet friendly hotel, which doesn’t bother us but the living room chair was full of dog hair, big turn off - the staff was amazing! Willy the bartender was tremendous, Dwayne at the front desk always greeted us by our first name, very funny and friendly! Wait staff and cleaning crew also very friendly, we felt so welcomed and cared for. - the food was great. Literally the best fish fry I’ve ever had. I’ll crave it for years to come!! - the pool was ok. We chose not to partake as it didn’t feel super clean, but there’s Sunset beach two miles away so we went there to enjoy the sunshine.

I dont expect alot to be honest but little things mean alot. I would expect these issues at a quality/budget inn at a $90 price point but to speak nearly $200 i expect basic cleanliness. When we checked in the room wasn't cleaned. Urine stains on toilet bowl, hair in tub and the bathroom/carpet floors were not vacuumed. It wasnt just a piece of lint in the corner but fkecks of paper a lint throughout the room made it obvious a vacuum hadn't touched the floor between visits. In the morning at 840 I went fown with my kids for breakfast and was confused as all the tables had chairs on it and nothing was out. I went to the front desk and no one was there 2 different guests waiting. One was trying to checkout and finally lost patience and tossed their cards on the desk to leave. I waited ten minutes and as I was leaving I could see they were just getting stuff out for breakfast. I can understand it not being ready AT the specified start time but just starting to bring things out 40 minutes after is ridiculous. The free breakfast is a big selling point for family's and now I get to drop another $50 at a diner for a meal that was supposed to be included. This place seems like it was really nice back in the day but needs renovations and attention to detail.

We were pleasantly surprised at the wonderful Easter Dinner prepared "to go" on Easter. The moist turkey was off the bone as was the tender ham. The gren beans, dressing, and smashed baby potatoes were very tasty. They supplied dessert, which was cherry cobbler - very lucious! The staff who delivered it to our car were very friendly, yet cautious of distancing. Lovely dinner and close to home so food didn't get cold.

We stayed in the a room that cost nearly 350.00 dollars. Over priced, unusable fold out bed that should be thrown away, historic dated resort, outdoor pool that should have been rehabbed 20 years ago, lots of noise and yelling from a wedding party outside. Spend your hard earned money somewhere else, do not stay here, the typical Door County Trap- over priced run down properties.
