On an extended 3week stay at this place, we have never been in a more unclassy place. Their "Continental breakfast" consisted of stale coffee, along with stale, bagged powdered doughnuts.....and that's it. At any given time, there are three to five vehicles being worked on in the parking lot. Countless meth addicts convening in the parking lot. Oh, if you...

If there were just a few upgrades on the building (pressure washing, etc.) this would be the top of road stays. That said it is because the grounds are kept up with beautiful flora and arbor. The design is unique because each unit has it's own balcony looking over a common area with a pool. The price is right and...

Decently priced and a clean room. It's not the Waldorf or Hilton but, it works me just fine. It's a nice cozy getaway with nice refrigerated air. The lighting system took some time to figure out but other than that we're cool. The bed was very comfortable, a little bit on the low side but comfortable. If you're use to...

The front desk person who greeted me had that great Southern hospitality... as I was checking in she mention that this was a ma & pa business, not your normal chain motel which I liked a lot. Making this more of a personal experience. It was late getting in and we were able to get a room on the 1st...

This place is a dump. Nasty rooms. If you have to stay here bring your own sheets and don't leave anything valuable in the room. They let homeless people clean rooms to pay for their own room rent. The front desk person was very nice, but it took her 3 sets of linens to find clean ones. Everything had stains...

Spent a weekend at the Lodge. Clean room, nice people, I had a non smoking room with 2 comfortable queen sized beds. The view out my backdoor made me look forward to waking each morning to rock on the porch and watch the groundhog play. Pricing was comfortable for my budget. Looking forward to staying there again in the future.

The Lodge is pleasant comfortable I'm tour bus driver for over 35 years and I learned not to listen to other peoples comments The people at the front desk are polite and curtious slept well and heard no noises and my room was facing the highway If I ever come back I would not hesitate to stay here again.
