For starters, pictures on their website do not even remotely paint the picture of just how disgusting these rooms are. I showed up to check into my room late at night and when I opened the door to my room, I couldn't have been more horrified. The brown rug was black, the room stunk of mold and cigarettes, my lights...

The former vacation inn was closed for a long time, we were so happy to see it reopened. I give the new owners much credit, they had a big job ahead of them when they opened up. I haven't stayed in the rooms but we have been up to eat. The food was very good, and everyone was very friendly.

If you are having a wedding at Fiddle Lake Farm, DO NOT stay here! Save yourself and your guests from this disastrous place. They do not have a computer system to keep track of guests or payments. The owner does everything by hand and keeps all his information in a manila folder making keeping track of anything a nightmare. This...

Stayed last year during snowmobile season . Now hear they gave closed the snowmobile trail on their property. Thats the only reason we stayed there so looks like we will go elsewhere now. Room was small and dirty, food was so so. Its a 70s motel spit shined on a budget

Friendly people, good service. We went for dinner which was very average at best. I honestly wouldn't go out of my way to go there. Also, went once in the evening when they had a band there. No real complaints. Just not excited about that place.

The renamed "Herrick Lodge" is the worst hotel I've ever attempted to sleep in. They had live music going from 10pm-2am which prevented sleeping for any of our group. We've stayed here before and agree with the other comments but will never stay here again. It might be ok for weeknights but I'd never stay another weekend night.

It was our second time there. The first time it just opened. We wanted to check it out, and only had beers. We were greeted by friendly service, which left a positive impression, and made us want to go again. It's funny how that works. It's only been open with the new ownership I think for a few months.. At...

Stayed here with four friends while skiing Elk mountain. The room was just a bathroom and a bunch of beds -we all shared a room and all slept comfortably. It's clean but definatly not fancy. Very reasonable rates (especially split five ways)and close to elk, Arlos tavern and the Candlight Inn. I would stay here again:)

If you're looking for a quick, no frills, cheap place to stay near Elk, this place is pretty good. It's clean, warm and the shower is hot. Don't go here with anyone you're looking to impress. If all you're planning on doing is sleeping, the Vacation Inn is just fine.
