We stayed at the lodge hotel on Feb. 22, 2014 in room 120. The rooms are a little dated but clean. Dated: not to be confused with torn fabrics, ripped up furniture, damaged and smelly carpets. I believe that have done their best with the budget they have. We took advantage of the special they have until April 30th, $69 a night per couple (THAT IS TOTAL) and that includes a terrific hot breakfast buffet with eggs cook to order.
The room we stayed in has the creek ,which was rushing some due to all the rain we’ve had, between buildings. It was so cool. There is the typical room set up with coffee maker, hair dryer, small microwave, iron and toiletries. Each room has rocking chairs out facing the creek. It’s a delightful setup. A great experience all the way around including the delicious breakfast and the very warm and friendly and accommodating staff!
I would highly recommend for couples weekend, family stay and reunions. It's super close to Mentone and the great Little River Canyon, a MUST see! I've probably told 12 of my coworkers and posted on FB. Go confidently in the direction of the great Alabama Outdoors, you won't regret it. Let your spirit breathe and rest and renew. And if you can, have a picnic on the canyon rim.
