Creekside Preserve Lodge and Cabins
Ranked #2 of 3 Hotels in Mayer
Reviewed 22 June 2013

I love this little place! I moved out of super 8 motel and found this gem.
Let me begin by saying that in past reviews the place was marked down as dirty. This isn't a 5 star hotel, but a southwest style cabin. Yes, the water here is hard, full of minerals, that is why the wonderful heart shaped tub is covered in white dust when drained. But that is explained when you check in.
I have heard it said that the owner can be hard on his cleaning staff. When he hires and maintains good staff the place is clean, but when not, the place gets dirty.
I love the huge pine bed. The back porch is lovely and semi private. The staff is friendly and eager to help. Food is good.
All that said, the place is a little funky, as in quirky. They have plastic deer outside, and large painted horses. It's unusual which I like.
I asked for the coupon rate and got my king room marked down from $109 to $99. Comes with continental breakfast and a 10% discount on dinner in the lodge restaurant.

Two night stay at a hideaway while the kids are at the nearby Chauncy Ranch Y. The cabins are separated from each-other just below the view of the nearby highway in Mayer. Even with the close proximity to the road, we enjoyed a peaceful night stay.

The rooms have the "Unique" red heart tub next to the bed over looking a stone fireplace and is equipped with a microwave, refrigerator and a large CRT television (who would expect a high end TV at a creekside lodge anyways?).

The rooms also had A/C and a separate bathroom with a shower if you did'nt want to use the Heart tub.

Back porch overlooking the dry creek was screened to keep whatever may buzz around out.

Breakfast a decent and service was great at the small restaurant, downstairs in the main building.

We also took a side trip to Smitty Big Barn Antiques, just up the highway from the Creekside, neat place!

Room Tip: Room 13 is under-used.

This is a perfect quiet geraway. We stayed one night and hiked up to tge vortex, enjioyed the great hot tub, and had dinner at the lodge. To all the bad reviews.....you dont book a $79 cabin and expect resort amenities. The cabins are really nice and comfortable. The service at the lodge was excellent. We will go back.

We stopped here as a mid-point before heading up to the Grand Canyon. The room was clean and comfortable. Settling back to relax in the heart-shaped jacuzzi while enjoying the fire was mmmm, mmmm good. The waitress Becky in their restaurant was the BEST. She was an immediate friend right from HELLO. She made us feel so welcomed. This world needs more people like her.
Only one thing, we forgot a back-pack right in the lobby after check-out. I really wish the manager would have attempted to call us on our cell phones when he found it rather waiting for us to call him when we arrived in Las Vegas 270 miles later. We then had to turn around to retrieve it and waste an entire day of our vacation.

Room Tip: The cabin was quiet. The screened porch would have been perfect had it been warmer.

My new husband and I went their for our Honeymoon. It was an amazing experience. Everyone from the staff in the lodge to the staff in the restaraunt were so accomodating and very nice. This wasn't a 5 star resort that was all fancy but cozy, quiet, and comfortable. My husband and I enjoyed the jacuzzi tub just steps away from the bed! The food in the restaraunt was very much mom & pop greasy spoon type place, it was awesome. The nights we'd go up and order our food and they got it all together for us to take back to our cabing where we enjoyed a candle lit dinner. They even have a few old wagons made into eating area outside where we enjoyed our breakfast. We plan on going back every year for our anniversary....and maybe even just to get away. I recommend this place to anyone looking to get away and not spend a fortune.

Room Tip: All rooms look the same. If you don't want to order from the restaraunt make sure to bring food...

My husband and I have spent many getaway weekends at the Creekside Preserve Lodge. The cabins are cozy and most feature heart-shaped Jacuzzi tubs, gas fireplaces and views of Big Bug Creek.
In-house dining further enhances the experience.
We've also scheduled several company parties and business meetings as well over the years.

This is our 3rd visit to the Creekside Cabins.....my husband I love the quiet,rustic and the cozy cabins. We really enjoy the fireplace, the in-room heart shaped hot tub and the restraunt is just steps away for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The staff has always been very friendly and welcoming. If you are looking for a nice,quiet weekend or a place to use as your "base camp" this is it!
