Room not ready at posted check-in time. Phone in room did not work. Refrigerator, despite adjusting to lowest setting, froze all our food.

The State Game Lodge was okay. The rooms are small but comfortable. The bathroom was mostly clean. The vents were nasty and the corners had lots of dust and hair but the restroom facilities were clean. We checked in late to our room because we were waiting on housekeeping, which is fine but we had nowhere to venture off to so we had to hang out in the lobby for an hour and a half after eating at the restaurant. I will probably not stay again. Not worth the price.

The outdoor setting is unmatched. The lodge’s Presidential history is very interesting which helps justify the room rate.
