The Sportsmen's Lodge could be really really cool...and maybe it is on its way to cool since they are currently under renovation. But they have a long way to go. We stayed in a renovated room. The bed was very comfortable and had a really cozy comforter on it and giant fluffy pillows and a mod duvet cover.
The bathroom had been modernized. No complaints about the facilities. The room itself is very sparse. It's a huge room with not a lot in it. The flat screen on the wall is too small for the size room. The TV is not on a movable arm so you cannot position it so it is visible from the desk. For such a giant room the outlets are sparse and badly placed. We had a hard time finding one near the desk...that's a problem if you actually want to work at the desk.
They charge you $20 for a fridge rental fee. That is so lame. Seriously lame. The rooms should have fridges. Although the room had been remodeled they paid little attention to the details...such as re-painting the trim. Details like that make a remodeled room still look battered. They also chose a bathroom door that is glass. So if you get up to use the restroom in the middle of the night and turn on the light it lights up the whole room waking up the other person. The toilet flush is also hugely loud. They should take the "ATM available" off their list of amenities since they don't have an ATM at the moment and we wasted time looking for it.
No matter what time of the day or night we were coming or going to our room there were constantly, not one, but two, housekeeping carts in the hallway at all times. Classless. If you're staff is not servicing rooms put the carts away.
And here's the thing that got me...I get it that you're under renovation, but have some self-respect. Don't have guests checking it at a six-foot gate-leg table unceremoniously set up in an old conference room. This is your hotel's first impression with your guests and it is a terrible first impression.
Hoping this property will step it up once renovations are complete. I'm giving it a very soft "3" that could easily have been a "2" but for the excellent service we received from room service on our last morning in the hotel. The guy who brought us breakfast was a delight and started off our morning on the right foot!
