We stayed in the hotel for three nights while at Darien Lake. The hotel is decorated in a lodge theme like The Great Wolf Lodge in Niagara Falls. There is an outdoor pool, a small gift shop, and a small food outlet. Stay away from the food outlet. We had breakfast there once and it was awful. Nothing but expensive microwave breakfast sandwiches and expired yogurt. The gift shop is awful as well. Very little inventory. Check-in takes a long time. Too few staff and no one know what to do. Our room was very average. It was clean. We heard the fireworks show at Darien Lake every night in the room. Pool was fine for the kids but too cold for my wife and me. Lifeguards are on duty. There is no hot tub. There were no towels left on hand when the kids got out of the pool. The best part of the hotel is that it is only a 10 minute walk to the park gate. But sometimes the nearest gate is closed, so be ready to go to another gate. As I said, Lodge on the Lake is good if you are staying at the park a few days, but it is not great. We will be trying the campground the next time we visit.
