We stopped for a weekend visit during Christmas time. The staff was very friendly. The lobby is awesome. My only complaint is I wish the rooms were a little updated and had a Christmas theme. We have stayed there a couple of times and no real complaints.

There are not many hotels around holiday world and this place is really the best option if you are there to visit holiday world. We visit once a year and always stay here. the rooms are nothing fancy buy they are clean and the staff if very helpful. the breakfast buffet is better that average.

Room Tip: get close to the office. there could be a lot of walking depending on where your room is

My family and I stayed at Santa's Lodge while visiting Holiday World. The hotel is right by Holiday World so was a very convenient location. I also enjoyed that there was a restaurant and bar inside the hotel since there are not many other options for food in the area. The hotel, however, is in severe need of a renovation. Very dated rooms and bathrooms. The hotel staff also did not come to clean our room either. Lodge does have indoor and outdoor pools, but when went to use them there were no clean towels so had to ask for some to be sent. Overall just ok hotel.

Went through Groupon to obtain what I thought was a package deal. My advice, watch out what you buy through Groupon. We just got back from Virginia Beach and stayed at a Best Western at $120 a night. This place was very clean compared to the Best Western. At Santa's Lodge, the bathroom floor was not dirty, although the tub could use some scrubbing. The Lodge is pretty run down like others have said. Looks like they have just let the Lodge go. The whole 3rd floor was shut off, rooms were not cleaned. On the 2nd floor, every room needed to be cleaned. Since it is off season, the Lodge is only using the first floor. My advice is not to get a king room, those beds are very firm! Go to the queen bed, they have the pillow top. We had great room service, plenty of towels. Enjoyed the indoor pool and whirlpool.

Room Tip: If you like a very firm bed then go for a King. The queen beds are pillow top.

Stayed here a night while visiting Holiday World. The room was large but had dim lighting. Separate bedroom had much better lighting. Kind of dated with the open jacuzzi in the main seating area. Adequate sofa, chair, and 4-seat dining table in the main area as well. Lots of carpet stains in the hall area. Very expensive for a hotel of this caliber but again it is very close to Holiday World; no transportation to park but might be possible to walk. There were some activities on site (small zip line run, bungee trampoline, climbing wall) all at extra cost. Breakfast not included. All of the staff we had contact with were very polite and helpful.
