This is the third time I've stayed at Lodge on the Desert, and I've been just as happy each time.
The staff are very friendly and helpful, the buildings are well designed, and the grounds are absolutely beautiful, green lawns and many citrus trees. They have a small pool and hot tub near the lobby, and a very nice restaurant on the premises.
We stayed for two nights in April. The room was quite large, well decorated, with excellent beds and a *fantastic* air conditioner! I like a cool room to sleep in, and these rooms a terrific. The bathroom is also large, although it only has a very large shower (no bath). Rooms are quiet and very clean.
The only downside I ever see (and it didn't bother me at all) is that second floor rooms are only accessible by stairs. While this seems very minor to me, I can see this being an issue for some people, so take it into account.
The grounds and landscaping are top notch, and add a lot to the experience.
