Love staying at the Lodge, have been here many times and will continue to return here. It's warm and cozy and just sweet. The staff is simply incredible -from front desk to housekeeping to omelet makers to bartenders. Love them all!

The Lodge at Leathem Smith is old, but nicely kept up except for the weeds in the landscaping and there is no view of the bay. However, customer service in some areas was lacking. We were there for a wedding celebration during late July 2016. We checked in the night before the wedding and were supposed to receive a basket... More

We purchased a Groupon and convinced our friends that they should do it too. I have never had problems in the past with a Groupon pick. We arrived at 2:30 and was told no check-in until 3:00 and the rooms we were staying were dirty. We visited a winery and had a great dinner at Sonny's. Got back to hotel... More

We reserved a two queen room. Sounds simple, but it was not. We arrived and were given a room in an outbuilding that was dank and dark and out of the 70's. 19" CRT TV, the bedding looked to be vintage 70's as well, bathroom barely large enough to stand in, very small sink vanity outside the bathroom. We were... More

Stayed here on a trip to Door County. Upon arrival, there was no greeting just a stressed front desk person who said "you didn't come from Booking.com did you?" Apparently, 6 other people had to be turned away as they had no rooms yet booking allowed it. We were put in the Harbor House which is separate from the main... More

Ok place but very outdated. The first night we stay in a basic room. Missing patio furniture on the patio, room furniture was ok but not like in the pictures on there site. They say there is a refrigerator and microwave but turns out only in the captain suite. So when we brought leftovers back they had to be thrown... More

There's something to be said for "old fashioned", especially in Door County. Unfortunately, one could describe The Lodge as "old fashioned" in a rather more negative way. Aside from the nice new foyer, this place hasn't been touched for (I'm guessing) 30 years. At least our kids were entertained and fascinated by the old "tube" style TV! Their parents were... More

The are around the hotel is serene and hotel was clean and quiet. Water pressure was great and there was a fan in bathroom. We also had a patio which was lovely. And room stayed nice and cool on the hot days. My only complaint is the bed was not super comfortable.

Bought a discount stay through Groupon for the Inn at Leathem Smith. We were not disappointed at all. Had a ground level room with 2 queen beds. The room was immaculate. The place is older but everything worked as it should have and everything was clean. The complimentary breakfast included a young man making omelettes to order which is something... More

The room was not clean, the beds were like trying to sleep on a jello cube. No one was at the front desk over night, and the continental breakfast was to start at 7:00 was ready until 8:30 along with the front door opening. Left after the first night.
