Stayed for 2 nights. This was our second time staying at the lake star. Enjoyed the view, fireplace, cleanliness, and decor. Best place for the price. Also enjoyed the complimentary really good keurig coffee and tea selections. Staff are very nice just like last time. You can easily walk to bars/restaurants. It's a great place all around.

LakeStar Lodge is a great place to stay. My daughter and I went to snowboard at Wisp Resort and are very glad we chose to stay at LakeStar. The accommodations are very nice and superbly clean. The bamboo flooring and custom crafted furniture made from reclaimed barn wood give this place a very comfortable feel. The lake views from the...

Clean, comfortable motel right on Deepcreek Lake. Every room has a lake view. Staff was very friendly. Only complaint was that the Wifi did not work for our entire stay. Unfortunately this is an important amenity to us. We asked several times for help from the staff but the issue was never resolved.

My biggest worry about traveling anymore is the cleanliness of the place I am staying. Safe to say that the LakeStar Lodge was very clean. We looked for dust, and couldn't even find it. The staff does a very good job cleaning the rooms. The view was absolutely amazing. It was definitively worth choosing the hotel for the view alone....

Lake Star Lodge took care of my hubby, who is a (disabled vet) staunch military guy, our companion dog, and our whole family with splendid accommodations!!! Their warm smiles and friendly faces made us feel right at home! We were their last February and loved it! All the activities (kayaking, water sports) were closed but, the stable near by quaint...

We really enjoyed our stay for my birthday. We agree with other reviews that the room was quite small and walls paper thin and not well insulated. But it was also very clean, cozy and comfortable. The balcony was a very convenient way to smoke and had a very nice view. The mid afternoon checkout was great but cost us...

Gilbert M, Owner at LakeStar Lodge, responded to this review

Amy, our apologies for the "surprise ending" to your birthday weekend. As our front desk hostess mentioned, each room does have its own dedicated 25 gallon water heater. We made the decision to have dedicated water heaters in each room to limit a single room's excessive water use from impacting the rest of the lodge guests. Based on available data,...

We stayed in the "two queen beds" room, so no fireplace, but it accommodated four of us nicely. The bamboo floors and furniture pieces are lovely.The beds are firm but comfortable. The entire room was extremely clean, with housekeeping attending daily. The bathroom was supplied with soap, shampoo/conditioner, and a small hairdryer. The view of the lake is beautiful. There's...

The room at LakeStar was super clean and very cozy. Nice view of lake and ski slopes across the lake. Fireplace added to the ambiance. Staff is friendly and helpful. Coffee in the room would be the only thing I would add. Would definitely stay here again.

Our stay at the Lakestar Lodge was cozy and comfortable. All rooms have views of the lake, and ours had a small fireplace which added to the fall/winter ambiance. Staff were helpful and quick when checking in and out. Only comment/concern was the wifi, which did not work consistently.
