Stayed for two weekends. This place used to be great! Plumbing was bad. The management was gone overnight and couldn't fix it. Yes, no staff on site overnight! Glad the place didn't burn down! Owners don't live on site either. The next weekend they were going to give us a discount, so we went back, but on check out guess what! No discount. The room was dirty and the plumbing was still not fixed! This place used to be great! Needs to get back to how it was! Restaurant was closed, no food on site. Bar closes "when they feel like it." WHAT HAPPENED? So much potential. Dinner theater is closed now. What a waste.

Don't trust this hotel. There are many others with nicer rooms at lower prices. The lodge rooms don't even have their own bathrooms. I set up 3 rooms with a total of 8 room nights two months ahead of the Thanksgiving holiday. I had heard that this place was kind of flaky, so I had backup rooms also reserved at another hotel, but I needed to cancel them 7 days in advance. I called 8 days ahead of the arrival date and confirmed the price and arrival dates at Pine Hills Lodge. I was told that everything was fine... so I canceled by backup plans. However, 4 days prior to arrival, the hotel calls and says they want $25 more per night for the room due to the holiday. I said I already had it confirmed at the agreed rate and asked to speak to the owner. He said that his employees were not authorized to confirm this information and they would not honor the verbal agreement. Then, after I threatened to complain to the Better Business Bureau and Chamber of Commerce, he canceled my reservations completely, leaving me high and dry!
