“Excellent Spot”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2014

Great place to get away to enjoy the scenery and the quietness of northern MN. All rooms face the lake which make this spot even more amazing. Great beach and food as well. That is what makes this a great one stop location.

I've stayed at 4 hotels in town and this is the best. There are several small mom&pop hotels and then some of the major brands and not-so-major brands, but this one is the best. Great location and decor. Quiet which I need when working night shifts. Has everything I want and need.

Very nice hotel right on the lake. Close to everything in town, very clean and well kept. We didn't really use any facilities except for breakfast dining room which was also very clean and orderly. If you have kids request a first floor room and they can walk right out of room to the beach.

We return to this hotel every year for a Family Reunion (about 40 of us). The lodge is a great place for this as they have lots of different things to do to keep everyone entertained. Nice beach, great spa, very good breakfast, great fire pits and breath taking sunsets you can watch from your own balcony or the hotel lobby balcony. They always have live entertainment on the Friday & Saturday evening in the main lobby bar. The rooms are spacious and decorated in a cabin style with upscale amenities. Beds are very comfortable. Staff is friendly. Always a great time.

Room Tip: I have seen the inside of all the different styles of rooms and they are all beautiful.....it just d...

The Best Western Lodge was excellent in service, decor, accomodations, location, food quality, cleanliness, and amenites. The view by the Lake and its own beach is a great addition to the great time we had there.

this hotel is like a resort but at hotel prices. A view of the Lake, a spa and great service. the staff is warm and welcoming and at your service. The meeting room was well lit and the break food was well received.

The Lodge is a nice upgrade from the the common choices in this area. Well-done rustic decor and attention to detail in services and amenities make this a very nice place to stay. Beautiful lake setting makes it feel like a cabin out in the woods, but with all the convenience of its in-town location.
