My family and I booked a last-minute stay at the Lodge this week after a family emergency brought us back to Forest City. We had two suite rooms for two nights. Everything was great: spacious rooms, comfortable bed. All in all, the hotel was a nice respite. Hhowever, what really set it apart was the service.
I arrived several hours before my mother and brother, after a long day flying. I checked in and afterwards asked the woman at the desk if there were any toiletries I could buy, since I had forgotten to pack shaving cream. She apologized, then offered to pick up a can when she went to the store later that evening. When my brother checked in, there was a can of shaving cream and my change waiting for him. I've never experienced so kind a gesture of service, and I've stayed in a lot of hotels. This small gesture made a huge difference to me, and it's the reason why I give the Lodge a 5.
