Didn't know what to expect; found it clean, comfortable. Fully met needs for brief, on- the-road stay. Room included small frig. Good budget option; would consider again. Breakfast was the usual choices.

Loved my stay here on november 29th through November 30th! The staff here is wonderful! The rooms are clean, beds are comfy and it was so pleasant. Rusty at the front desk was super friendly and greeted me with a nice smile and a good morning when I came by. Becky, the lady who checked me in was so friendly!...

Booked this room because it had a little pool Area that was kid friendly. My son loves to go to water parks so this was a decent choice. The only complaint was that the water was a bit cold. It could have been warmer.

Great pool area for our kiddo- warm water and very clean. There was a good variety of foods for breakfast which was included. Bathroom was small in our room which made it difficult to get our whole family ready, but over all we enjoyed our stay.

We were just passing through and arrived late in the evening. The night desk clerk was exceptional at that late hour with a pleasant, efficient personality. In the morning we were completely impressed with the food and presentation of breakfast in a really well decorated breakfast room. My husband can't stop talking about the antique looking fridge and stove there....

Our first visit here, and we were a little skeptical based on price, and location. We were pleasantly surprised from check in to check out. We were greeted by Monica who had a great personality. The room was spacious and comfortable. The beds were made with crisp soft linens, and were comfortable. Yes, the bathrooms are smaller, but you're not...

We stayed here two nights and it wasn`t what we expected at all, very small bathrooms with nowhere to put toiletries. We were by an exit door and had the noise of banging doors as well. Long walk to breakfast and it really wasn`t worth it. We were bitten by something in the bedroom as we both had bad bites.

We found the Dakodah Lodge on the internet and decided to stay here based on the reviews and ratings it had received.
