I booked a room and then read the reviews. Needless to say, I was expecting to pay way too much money for a dump with no amenities. We encountered a very pleasant surprise. We booked a family suite (almost $200/night) and I think we ended up in the newly added part. The room was spacious (bathroom too) and updated. We had a large TV with DVD player, small area like a wet bar (sink, microwave, mini fridge, counter, cabinet and drawer). It was clean and well stocked with plenty of linens and toiletries. We did eat dinner at their restaurant after returning from Holiday World. Food wasn't great for the price but it was edible and staff was very nice. There is a pizza place across the street with a buffet of pizza and regular food such as fried chicken, soup, salad veggies and spaghetti for only 6.99, much cheaper than the lodge. Yes the lodge was noisy but of course it's full of excited kids. I never travel without my ear plugs. Pools were nice and clean and they continuously brought out fresh pool towels. I think the place is a little pricey but it is right by the park.
