My husband and I just returned from a 3 night stay at the Lodge at Turning Stone. We live on Long Island and make mid-week driving trips to Mohegan Sun or Atlantic City every few months. Turning Stone is was a bit more of a drive, but it was well worth it. The Lodge is an all-suite property, attached to the main hotel casino area by an enclosed walkway. The Lodge is peaceful and beautiful. It is tastefully decorated and the rooms are spacious and have great little extras like a balcony, separate bathtub, down comforters and pillows, free internet access, turndown service, daily newspaper, and a fireplace in some. (This was a highlight of our suite, viewable from the living room and the bedroom.) The staff was friendly, professional and unobtrusive. The casino is well-maintained and was sizable enough to keep us busy for 3 days. Table games are plentiful and start at $5 early and go up to $10 and $15 later in the day. We ate at the buffet and the 24 hour restaurant, and both were good quality at a reasonable price. The golf facilities look excellent, and we will return to this property to use them next spring. Did not use the new spa or workout/pool area, but they looked great, especially the pool, which had free-form stonework and flowing water. The spa had a good-sized menu of services, including a sweat lodge ceremony that could be booked 24 hours in advance.
As for pricing, this suite was less expensive than a standard room at Mohegan Sun for the same dates.
