“Not worth what we spent...”
Reviewed 17 February 2014

We stayed here for Valentines' Day weekend and found it disappointing and not what we were expecting for the money we were spending.

First off, we ordered the package that came with wine, chocolates, and two glasses. I thought these would be in our room when we checked in but instead had to go request it from the desk. All of this stuff came in a black plastic top hat complete with green and gold frilly decorations, clearly left over from New Years'.

Also, they have a problem with the orange invasive ladybugs. They were everywhere in our room. We also saw them everywhere in the hallways. They were crawling on our walls, all over the bathroom, and it was gross.

The room itself is lacking as well. It just doesn't have a nice hotel feel with power strips laying on the ground for plugs, wallpaper peeling, and the shower curtain rod was loose and falling off. Also, the hidden $2 technology fee which is supposed to cover the "600 channels of Satellite TV," which didn't even work properly and kept cutting out on our giant 19" television. The place itself was built in 1974 and I don't think they've changed much since then. The walls are paper thin too so we could hear everything in the halls and adjacent rooms and had to whisper so we could at least talk privately. This place could really use a renovation. There were also mattresses just laying in the hallways. Also, no elevator either so if you have more bags than you can carry in one trip, you will have to go up and down the stairs several times.

The pool was filled with kids of course and you couldn't really get in without being splashed or kicked by someones unsupervised child. Likewise, there were kids running in the halls stomping that we could hear from out room.

The restaurant was ok but nothing special either. For some reason they had the same 3 people working breakfast, lunch, and dinner the entire weekend we were there so it was a little embarrassing having the same person seat you and serve you a few hours later after you had breakfast or lunch. Service was sort of slow too for dinner because I think they only had 2 servers for a full house.

Also for some strange reason you can't bring your own alcohol in. I guess this is a state park policy but makes no sense for a hotel lodge. So the champagne we brought had to stay in the car because it was forbidden.

So the place wasn't absolutely horrible but they really don't pay attention to the little things that would make you want to return. Overall, I wouldn't spend more than $60 for a room of that quality, certainly not the ~$200 we paid per night.

When we checked in in the afternoon, the room was very cold. We cranked up the heater but little happened. We went out to sit in the hall to stay warm. It was still cold after dinner. We played cards and 2 out of 4 of us wore coats and another one draped a blanket around him. This is not an isolated problem since my brother's room had the same problem. The outside temperature on arrival was about 20 degrees, not really cold for an Ohio winter. Of course, this criticism would not apply in warm months, and the Lodge rating would be better then.

Water temperature varied a lot during showers, being both too hot and too cold. The bath fixtures looked old, although the bedroom furniture looked new. This was probably just our room, since my brother's room did not have this problem.

Like many sleazy operations, the Lodge added an extra surprise fee to our bill, which was not disclosed in the quote for the room. In this case it was a $2 'Technology Fee'. I really don't think they would have lost much business if they had just raised the room cost by $2 and told people about it. I think that management acts on the principle that it is always better to deceive the customer. Not a big deal, but it shows you the kind of people you are dealing with.

The scenery is wonderful at this location. The front desk ladies were fabulous and accommodating.
Peaceful and with good winter activities available. Very accommodating for business.
If you like the winter and winter hiking. This is a great area to hike. The summer is much busier.

Room Tip: Chose a room that faces the lake with a balcony. You can sit outside in the winter or summer.

How right you are! Even in the cold and snow of winter, the hiking is great and we have two ski resorts nearby. The deer and bald eagles make their appearance daily, so if you just want to relax and enjoy a hot chocolate in the dining room, you'll be sure to see the wildlife. Thank you for visiting Mohican Lodge and we look forward to hosting you again!

We enjoyed our stay here. It is an inviting atmosphere with very attentive and pleasant staff. Dining is a lovely experience - the view of the surrounding forest and wildlife - the wait staff were very attentive and responded quickly to any special requests. The room was very pleasant, with a nice balcony (especially appreciated because it rained the entire time of our visit) and the beds were beautifully presented (5-Star hotel Quality!!) and were equally comfy.
It was a very nice place for a getaway.

Room Tip: Be prepared, as w/most of Ohio State Parks, for a long ride thru the park area to arrive at your des...

My 7 year old daughter said it was better than Great Wolf Lodge so that tells you a little something. The rooms were spacious and clean with a beautiful view of the lake and six deer eating in the horizon. The restaurant offered fine dining with reasonable prices. The food and drinks were excellent as well as the ambiance. You can really appreciate the views of the lake from the large windows in the dining room. The large stone fireplace adds a cozy warm lodge feel. There are so many activities to enjoy both inside and outside. This may be the beginning of a new family tradition.

This is a nice place to stay and not overly pricey. The rooms are very spacious and clean. I can't say anything about dinner at the restaurant since it is way to expensive. I can't imagine any piece of meat loaf or plate of chicken and dumplings being with $15. The breakfast service was more reasonably priced but still not worth what you get. Unfortunately, there is nowhere else close by. It's a shame that with such a scenic dining area they serve such a low quality meal and probably know they can do so because they have a captive audience.

My husband and I had a memorable anniversary trip to Mohican Lodge resort. It is clean and well cared for. The rooms lack nothing and the beds are great. The shower pressure was average. Winter hiking is beautiful! Ping pong, sitting by the fire and the lounge made for a relaxing evening. The restaurant is accomodating to vegans and the fireplace a winter delite. We are returning in a few weeks, can't wait to go back!

Room Tip: Use AARP for a discount. Ask for second floor not overlooking the parking lot.
