I'm retired from the Army( 21 years) (E-7), wanted to visit my home town without putting any of my friends or relatives out and besides my wife and I like some privacy from time to time.The price at the lodge is the right price($81.00). The room is very large and is nicely appointed with a, microwave,refrigerator, desk, eating table etc..The bed was one of the most uncomfortable beds I have slept in lately and the sheets were maybe 50 count, felt like sand paper. The employees were not friendly at all and the front desk person was never available, called down several times for information about the base, no answer.Most employees acted if they had an attitude and did not smile or speak...... maybe they could not understand a simple good morning or hello. One time I did talk with a front desk person face to face and his English was limited. Breakfast was o.k., usual waffles , cereal bars cereal, juice etc.. Overall the experience was not totally bad, only because I enjoyed meeting some wounded warriors but the lodge even with getting renovation needs a major overhaul. Better beds and friendly employees who respect the sacrifice that most guest have given. .
