“R & R UP NORTH”
Reviewed February 8, 2013

The trip to the Manhattan Beach Lodge was great! We had the best room in the house which included a separate bedroom, 2 person whirlpool tub in the bathroom, gas fireplace, deck and lake view. We only ate one meal in the restaurant and the burgers were great! The staff were all very accomodating, helpful and friendly. It was great to be able to rest, eat and relax, in addition to our snowmobile trip on the adjecant trail!

Room Tip: Our room was on first floor and on the end so it was extra roomy!

The weather was really cold outside. Even the snowmobilers were inside! But it was cozy and warm inside our master suite. This was our second visit once in summer of 2012 and now this winter 2013. I found the staff attentive, the bartender at happy hour fun, mixing great drinks and at dinner the food, especially the small plate steak bites paired with the mixed green salad tasty.

Our TV in the bedroom didn't work properly but the suite was clean and roomy. Our bed was a comfortable king size and except for some noisey neighbors downstairs one night our two night stay was relaxing. The lodge is close the the Crosslake city park where we went cross country skiing before the temp dropped to -2 degrees! For extra savings we used Star Tribune Steal Deal.

By coincidence, my wife and I were here on the two coldest days Minnesota has experienced in four years. Perfect excuse for sitting around the fireplace, reading and napping and enjoying the coziness. The clean room was well designed and decorated. Staff took good care of us. Because it is lakeside, it would be a very different kind of pleasure being near the water in the summer. Food in the restaurant was excellent and the service good.

Room Tip: They all have lake views!

LivingSocial currently has a great deal for staying at this lodge. $109 to stay 2 nights (Sunday and Monday). Cost includes bottle of wine, continental breakfast and $25 gift certificate to the lodge's restaurant. I typically do not pay for lodging at the full prices listed for this lodge. This is a historic lodge which has been renovated. All rooms face Big Trout Lake. The room was very clean and the bed was very comfortable. The housekeepers and restaurant staff were very friendly and accomodating. The only complaint I have is that the front desk was not always available when we needed assistance. Perhaps the lodge should think about having a phone at the front desk for customers to call when the front desk staff is unavailable.

Room Tip: The mini suite is very roomy and nice.

We'e been going to eat and drink at Manhattan Beach for years, but the service has hit an all-time low, and we will no longer return. We wanted to sit on the patio, recently, and we were told by the very unfriendly reservation staff person to wait and we'd be seated. No smile, no greeting, no hospitality. We looked at the patio and only three of the 10 tables were filled, with noone else waiting. We asked the staff person if we could be seated at a table with an umbrella for shade. Ten minutes later we were told to follow her and she led us to the only table with no umbrella, directly in the sun. She explained lamely that people staying at the hotel had first dibs on tables. We replied that noone else seemed to be coming. No reply from restaurant grouch. We left. This is typical of this hotel's service. The view is great, the staff lacks courtesy.

This is one hotel that although it was fairly clean, the hotel staff had a whole new way of handeling customers. The biggest problem is the front desk staff. Although we had called the week before and changed our arrival date the girl who talked to us on the phone entered us for two rooms on the same night but NOT on the night we were to arrive.
The next morning I walked to the front desk and asked of it would be okay to stay in our room rather than being moved to a suite which was the plan. She said ok and I left it at that. Coming back from lunch on the hotel patio we entered our room to find everything gone. After getting everything back the girl at the front desk denied having said ok that morning. I have had hotel staff lie to me before, no suprise there, but I have NEVER had my personal belongings moved by housekeeping. The best I can say is beware of the front desk staff. They seemed more intent on socializing than taking care of the guests. After all of this I never ONCE heard from the hotel manager.

I would first like to apologize for how your stay was handled at Manhattan Beach Lodge. We accommodate many people nightly and our intention is to provide them with a comfortable and enjoyable stay. We have spoken to the staff members involved and found there was a miscommunication between the departments involved. Again we would like to apologize for how your stay was handled and hope that you will give us another chance in the future.

My large extended family recently spent a lovely afternoon on the patio at Manhattan Beach. The musical entertainment was fun and the view / ambiance can't be beat! It was great to be able to take the kids down to the beach to wade in the water and skip rocks. The food was excellent and there were several unique choices. My aunt particularly enjoyed the Boursin Burger and the Loaded Bloody Mary's were a big hit! I wouldn't hesitate to come here again for a meal, especially on a gorgeous day!
