Hotel was clean and well taken care of. With 2 queen beds in the room it was a little crowded, but that was OK because we were visiting friends in the area and not spending much time in our room. A continental breakfast was available, but we chose to have breakfast at a restaurant, The hotel was appropriate for out...

I read positive & negatives. My take is, that I would stay here again. The room looks redone. TV has a lot of channels. Toiletries sufficient. Bed is comfortable. Quiet at night. The only suck was, a decent free breakfast wasn't ready until 8 AM----we were there to judge a horseshow---Show starts at 8 AM--the breakfast room was busy, on...

The lodge is good for reasonable price. Rooms are clean, comfortable and good. The breakfast was good. with enough foods to have a breakfast. Had some good options like sausage, eggs, waffles, yogurt and fruits. Free WiFi, free parking which is really nice. The staff were good on serving and helping us.

Although the hotel was clean and the staff was friendly, the manager overcharged us, refused to work with us over a mistake BW made in reservations. Because of his attitude and his unwillingness to work with us we will NEVER stay at this Lodge again and I recommend others to steer clear. He also tried to sneak in a charge...

...but I was generally pretty miserable at this hotel, which is really a motel. I have tried to assess why, and I can tell you that it started with my first interaction with the owner. I had been travelling for 10 hours by the time I arrived and I was greeted by him with a severe scowl because I arrived...

The staff was wonderful and very accommodating. I needed to be on the first floor due to an injury, the employee on duty made sure that my need was met and offered me assistance - I was really impressed by the willingness of staff to ensure my stay was enjoyable. I will be back, nice room, reasonable price, close to...
