Our Family Style rooms include 1-Queen sized bed and 1-Double sized bed with a shared bathroom. There is a door separating the adjoining bedrooms, providing a bit more privacy than the standard side-by-side double occupancy motel rooms.

dose the Tomahawk Lodge has a guest laundry on site?
The Tomahawk Lodge is a older motel run by some nice people but does not have much in amenities. I did not see a laundry but I suspect that they may not have one but if that is important to you I would call them about it.

"Room #9 in the corner away from the road was quiet for us."
"If traveling with a dog, get a room in the rear building closer to grassy area and bike path, if available."
