Upon arrival, I was surprised to find that this "lodge" is really in the middle of a commercial area just off the highway. However, once inside, it does back onto a golf course, so the views are nice from that side of the hotel and you don't feel that you are right in town. The rooms facing the road (at least on the upper levels) do have a view of the water over the highway and business corridor. The lobby is lovely.
The rooms are nicely decorated in keeping with the lodge theme and have a refrigerator and microwave, along with standard complimentary toiletries. The bed was comfortable and the rooms are clean and well-maintained. Staff is very friendly. Corridors are very long, so you can find yourself a long way from the elevator. Had no problems with noise.
They offer soup and cookies in the evening, which is a nice touch. The thing I find very odd is that breakfast is not included, which is really pretty standard for this price point. There is a restaurant that serves breakfast only (order off the menu, not buffet), but the cost is extra. The layout of the restaurant makes it clear it is set up for the standard self-service breakfast, so I don't know why it isn't offered. They don't even have coffee service available, unless of course you buy it in the restaurant for $3.25 a cup. You can make coffee in your room, but I'm never happy with the in-room coffee makers. Traveling on business, the ability to quickly grab something and be on my way is important, so I found the lack of an included breakfast to be disappointing.
