There were mixed reviews on Tripadvisor but I thought a lodge would be a fun experience for my family. We pulled up and the first thing we saw was the air conditioning units with mold on the outside. I went in and the musty smell was rather unpleasant. I went to the desk and stated that we did not want...

When I first drove up to Smoketree, I thought "Oh no" because it looks rather run down. However, the room is clean with no smell of smoke (ask them to put the ozone machine in the room prior to your arrival). This is not a fancy place by any means. However, it was adequate because I was out hiking or...

Our three-night stay at this inn was very nice. The room was fine, although the furnishings were a little dated and worn. The atmosphere was quite nice - with beautiful water elements behind the reception area and a wooded area just above the parking lot. The pool, hot tub, and sauna were ok too. This is a good place to...

If you are athletic this is the place for you. Lots of stairs! If you want a timeshare, owners are giving their unit away for free as long as you pay the annual maintenance fee as well as the weekly $78 housekeeping fee. It's rustic, 70s decor but clean and the hiking behind the lodge is DIVINE! We had 2...

I have stayed at Smoketree Lodge 3-4 times a year since 2009. This is a very clean and lives up to the Lodge name. If you are scared of cigarette smoke or don't like the smell this may not be the place for you though( personally I don't think you can smell anything). I love it, the rooms are nice...

We stayed for one night at the Smoketree Lodge. It's definitely an affordable option in the area. Our room was on an upper floor and very cute. We knew ahead of time that all the rooms were smoking, and they claimed to have put some sort of smoke removal/cleaning machine in ahead of time. I came prepared with Febreeze as...

I don't usually write negative reviews but Smoketree was unacceptable. This was the absolutely worst place I've been to. I had a reservation for a week and stayed only one nite. The room reeked of stale cigarettes. Don't waste your money stay somewhere else!

We stayed at Smoketree this year and the year before - then in a room on an upper floor and our latest stay in the basement. So this rating actually takes into account the previous stay and this one. Previous stay was good and would rate it a 3 -- averaged with this stay's rating of 1, it comes out...

My two boys, ages 20 & 10, and I stayed June 14-17. We had a one bedroom unit. The kids had the front room, which had a kitchenette with a full sz refrigerator, queen pull out sofa and table with chairs. Plenty of room for the three of us. The bedroom had a queen bed, which was very comfortable. Housekeeping...

“If you don't want to awaken early, make sure to ask for a room without a skylight. Although it's beautiful to look at, having bright light shining down on the bed at the crack of dawn isn't the most ideal for trying to sleep in a little.”
