          We stayed overnight at the Lodge on the Desert. We were pleasantly surprised. Fabulous overnight. The front desk was very helpful. Our room was very nice with much attention to the little details. Very clean. Outdoor dining was quaint and nice. We would stay again.

          @ajeepgirl80 - Downtown is approximately 10-15 mins away. Uber and Lyft are heavily used, and can be very helpful when parking is at a premium due to special events.
