Best thing about this lodge is the family atmosphere, great personable service. They aim to make your stay comfortable and relaxing. Loved having s'mores by the fire in the evening overlooking the mountains!

We checked out the website & found the rooms to look OK and the views shown on line were of mountains. Talked to the owners to make reservations and they were quite nice.

BUT, upon our early evening arrival, we found an outdated MOTEL out in the middle of nowhere. Just one story, maybe 20 rooms end to end, in need of painting. And mo one else was staying there..

The rooms were fair, clean, but still an old motel type room . . the lodge as advertised was nowhere in sight. On the back side of the motel was a fenced in yard with a view of distant mountains. Very upset but no where else to go @ the time, so we had to stay the night.
We left very early the next morning . . .

Room Tip: Always be sure you have pictures of the entire place . . inside and outside.

We had a wonderful time. Wayne and wendy auman are the owners and they went out of their way to provide us with whatever we needed. All we had to do was ask. This place was great! Very quiet and peaceful. If you're coming to the mountains this would be a great place to stay. One unique feature of this lodge is the nightly fire pit out back with fantastic mountain views from the rear of the lodge. This is a must see.

Stayed at this hotel (not a lodge) on Feb 15, 2013. Chairs were filthy, carpet was dirty, very plain, run down, not enough pillows, and definitely not the quality stay you would expect for $98.79. The forecast was for snow the next night, so it was an easy decision to leave so we could get home before the weather caused us to be stuck there. Read the small print! Owner did not want to give us our $ back for 2nd night. When I explained we were so disappointed with the quality of the room, they agreed to only charge us for the night we stayed. Two months after we stayed (April 4), the Lodge took $197.58 from my checking account. I called the Lodge twice and was told both times that it would be reversed, but it never was. I would strongly NOT recommend this hotel to anyone!!!

On motorcycle, holiday weekend in the worst (awesome) thunderstorm. Hendersonville called this lodge for us and they had a room! We backed tracked a bit and when we pulled in they were ready and waiting with towels for us and the bike! Made covered parking available too. Great place,great view with fire pit w/smores. Hospitality at it's best.

Our family stayed here a few days while visiting from CT. Wayne was so kind, he waited up for us till midnight to ckeck in since we were traveling from Raleigh. He was gracious at every request and I had and I had a few because of the lack of room-standard amenities (iron, ironing board). Wendy was a dear and gave us useful info about the area. The only negative thing I have to express, for those planning on staying there, is that while they boast wifi in each room, truthfully there is not any worthwhile wifi because it is so slow its basically nonfunctional. They offered me the visitors lounge (because it is closer to the router) to sit and work at but that was the day of check out and after I had already found a local library that gave me wifi. Lovely hosts and lovely place, you'll feel safe and enjoy a beautiful, unique view from the gathering area.

Room Tip: Pick the room closest to the office for good wifi service. There is no fitness center, above was se...

Saluda Mountain Lodge is located just outside the quaint town of Saluda. It sits up on ridge with beautiful views of the Green River Gorge. In the evening, weather permitting, they light a fire and you can sit outside and enjoy the views. A few more chairs would be nice too. No one wants to give up their chair! Other reviewers boast of smores but I never saw any.

The lodge itself it an older hotel that has been updated with a country theme - pine paneling in the rooms, quilts on the beds (however, I wonder how they handle washing those and how frequently). The headboard on our bed was not fastened and every time you got out of bed or rolled over the headboard beat the wall. For all the updating, you could not do anything about the thickeness of the walls. We could hear our neighbors coughing and of course, their tv when they turned it on. All rooms open to the outside parking lot where you park your car in front. The negative was there were some others staying that looked like that they were long term residents. They had fold up chairs and a table set up outside their room. They got up at 6:00 in the morning and went outside to sit, talk and smoke. They laughed and talked loud. They did the same at night. It was hard to sleep. There room was approximately four doors down from ours. Our room was a standard room which had a tv, coffee maker and blow dryer. There was not a microwave or refrigerator.

Their website states a standard room is $99 on weekends (does state rates may change) and that they proudly offer AAA discounts. Forget it! There is no AAA discount! I was quoted a price before I told them I had AAA. After I was told the price, I stated I had AAA and was told that was the AAA price - which was $10 more than the price quoted on the website. Hmmm. Thought discount meant price decrease, not increase.

Anyway, the room was nice and we did enjoy our stay. The room was very clean and there were plenty of towels. We were missing a wash cloth, but plenty of towels. We would stay again; however, we were disappointed in not being given the AAA discount (although it would of only been about 10%, it was the principle).
