Although everything was excellent, we loved the view the most. It is a spectacular location. We did not find anything we did not like. We will definitely stop in again when travelling through that area.

Beautiful room, very comfortable bed and extremely clean. Would give 5, but our a/c leaked, the carpet was wet and made our room smell really musty.

Nice, Clean and Budget Friendly

Pros: Clean and budget friendly. Friendly staff.
Cons: Perhaps a Bold Coffee option for breakfast.
Location: Just passing through so we didn't visit any of the local attractions.
Very friendly staff, clean rooms, economical. We arrived late and spent one night. The staff was gracious and the continental breakfast was good.

The place to stay.

For courtesy, comfort and convenience this is the place to stay. The front desk is helpful, the rooms are immaculate with microwave and fridge, the pool is sparkling clean and a nice variety for breakfast. Go into St. Clair (5 minutes) and eat at the Lewis Cafe for lunch or dinner. It's too bad more motels can't be this nice.

Nice place but decieving

Stayed at the ""Lodge"" early Oct 2008. I booked the hotel because of its proximity to a wedding and it seemed like a super deal..... however, the photo's are very misleading. I'm not here to tell all the negative things. Actually, the place is very clean, staff was nice, breakfast was good and finding the hotel is very easy. SO don't be afraid to book a stay at this hotel. Just understand the hotel is not a Lodge, it sits on a major freeway and there is no view. The photos are very misleading BUT this is a nice place. BTW, very comfortable beds
