“Nice clean comfortable room, BUT!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 September 2012

We visited the Lodge overnight for the first time to see one of our favorite bands without driving home. The rooms are clean,comfortable for a nice getaway. The grounds are very nice. I rated only the room!
There is a problem when it comes to parking your car,they dont have enough parking spots.
WARNING If you plan on going to the entertainment, go somewhere else. They cater to the local drunks who get sloppy drunk, fall all over the dancefloor with beer bottles and glasses breaking. Mix in toddlers running wild threw the dance floor! The management will keep serving the drunks. I have been in some dive biker bars, but this place takes the top of anyplace I have ever been in! Too bad because it is a pretty nice place.. if they controlled the locals!

This resort is like returning to Mayberry. The rooms are outdated but clean and well maintained. It's like when the plaid wallpaper in the bathroom needs replaced they re-wallpaper with the same plaid wallpaper. The tile surrounding the bathtub was clean and the grout was clean it looked freshly done. The floors in the bath were wood and in perfect shape. No stains on the carpet, or the walls or the ceiling. No flat screen tv but cable and plenty of drawers in well maintained, no scratched dressers. The bed was comfortable with 6 pillows.

The staff were all accomodating and friendly from the front desk to the restaurants of which we ate in three and all three were very good!

The grounds were also very well maintained. The golf course was beautiful! There are two large pools, one indoor heated and one very large pool outdoor. There is an excercise room which I never used so don't know what equipment they have. They have a beach on Lake Erie that they will take you to in a golf cart and I did see some that were taking picnic baskets from the Lodge. When you want to return, you just call the Lodge and within minutes a golf cart is there. They also have a marina that is lovely to walk thru and then have dinner at the restaurant overlooking the water. We also took an hour boat ride on the Lake and Huron River.

Booked the 1 night golf package for 2. Very professional staff at check in, at Salmon Restaurant, and golf course. Room was outdated but clean. The perch was fantastic. Very nice golf course. I would return for a repeat trip.

The hotel is trying, but it is losing the battle with age. Our room was clean and comfortable - all the usual amenities - though the AC was very loud and the shower valve provided an exciting hot water experience. Plus, I guess they get to call themselves a resort because there are robes. With flat screen TVs so cheap now, I really don't think there is any excuse for having the old CRT. I liked the Adirondacks/indian theme. The hotel restaurant was was good and about the only place to eat nearby. The pool was nice but the hot tub was only luke warm - but it was clean and inviting. It was evident that there were some fun features that no longer functioned.

The golf course was excellent if a little pricey for a generally run down area.

Breakfast is not included.

This place looked like about 30 years ago, it would have been nice. Now, it's outdated, run down, shabby, and overpriced. The bed linens are old dirty quilts that looks like something my grandmother would have, the pillow cases had stains on them, the beds were worn out and way past their lifetime, the mirror in the bathroom had spots behind it that were black splotches, and the tub drain was rusty and corroded.

Overall, it just felt old, used, dirty, and uncomfortable. This place is overpriced and in SERIOUS need of a complete renovation. Don't waste your money!

Room Tip: A good tip... don't stay here!

Went with my sister this past June and it was GREAT.
Hotel has a friendly staff at desk.Clean room comfortable beds.
Pool clean and spa was great also.
We had a great time for seniors.
Food at the restaurants was very good and not expensive.
Breakfast Buffet was the best I have had in a long time.
Entertainment at the lounge was good.
Bought items at the shop and they had a nice selection of items to sell.
Will go again.

Great place on Lake Erie. If you are travelling with children, you might not be so enamored but after a full day of riding Roller Coasters with nieces & nephews, this place was truly a find! The staff was exceptional, the bar equally great and the food, outstanding! We will definitely return!
