Today, my husband and I decided to take a ride thru the Adirondack Park, and go to dinner at the Melody Lodge, Speculator. THe service was great, the meal enjoyable, but did not appreciate have incoming dinners standing about our table waiting for us to leave, it made us think again if we would make the trip again to have...

We booked a last minute getaway here. I will be honest, I was a bit nervous and did not know what to expect. My boyfriend being very adirondack-y and adventurous was very excited to visit. Being his birthday I went along with it. Room was immaculately clean and very comfortable. AC worked great and after letting it warm up a...

The Melody Lodge has been around for over a century so it has retained it's charm . We have been going for lunch and dinner over the last 3 years and enjoy it every time. The food is consistently good with variety and prices within range for most. Service is very good but be prepared to wait during busy times....

Rooms clean, comfortable but not quiet until the dining room/bar closed. Free internet but no TV(a welcome change!). The gorgeous view while sitting on the front porch and the excellent food in the dining room make up for any inconveniences in the lodging.

Stumbled upon this gem as we searched for an authentic Adirondack experience, and we were not disappointed. This is a beautiful, historic little lodge just outside Speculator, with scenic views - inside & out. We were given spacious Rm 7, immaculate and peaceful, rustic yet comfortable. Beds were outstanding; we both slept extremely well. Evening sounds from the bar downstairs...

The Melody Lodge has always been my favorite place to eat for over 20 years. I have never stayed there and have been wanting to try it. My husband and I were there for 2 nights in Aug. First thing I noticed was no TV in our room. At least an air conditioner, so that helped with the heat. We...

Absolutely horrible service/ attitude. I don't know how you could ever plan on being in business very long with the way they treat their customers. The only lady that was pleasurable to speak to was the cleaning lady who would do a better job running that business than who is in place now. I would never recommend staying here.

We recently stayed at the Melody Lodge and I am guessing the older lady that checked us in was the owner because no employee can be that rude to a customer and keep their job. Just nasty miserable. She huffed and puffed every time we asked for something. I will say that the food was very good, the bartender, Sean...

The food is fantastic, the waitstaff is fabulous, and overall a great experience. The rooms are basic but clean and functional. I took my wife here for a day of snowmobiling in the Adirondacks and we had a great dinner and a place to sleep to get early start in the morning. I've had food here at least three different...
