"a great place to stay"

5
08/10/2018

Our room was large and well arranged. We ended up having something to eat downstairs. We had the chicken-artichoke flatbread and it was great. Perfect size for 2 to share. We had a couple beers also. Dawn made our pizza and served us- she was very friendly and fun to talk to. The check-in and check-out process was great. This motel is close to train tracks, but since all the rooms face the lake, we could hardly hear the train. The breakfast was good, with lots of places to sit. It was a very relaxing stay.

"wonderful lodge ,scenic setting"

05/10/2018

We had a reunion here and we were very pleased with the arrangement of the lodge..We had a lake view and room amenities were great. Refrigerator and microwave were in the room ...all was very clean and everyone was most helpful and pleasant. Way to go Best Western.!!

"This hotel is probably one of the most relaxing hotels we have stayed in and perfect in every way"

20/09/2018

If you want a hotel that is beyond most others this is the place to stay. It is kept up to perfection, the rooms are beautiful, the lobby is so relaxing and the breakfast is like no other I have ever been at. We enjoyed our stay beyond words--the beautiful grounds and sandy beach make it a place to stay and relax. Every guest we talked to from Colorado to Ontario were so impressed with this hotel and all said they would certainly return. All I heard were good things from everyone staying at the hotel. And they even have smores in the evening--how fun. The lobby is absolutely beautiful and so warm and inviting. This hotel will not disappoint you. I recommend this hotel to everyone looking for a beautiful hotel. The sunsets are amazing.

"Amazing stay"

5
20/09/2018

The lodge on the lake was a great hotel. The staff are very friendly, the breakfast was delicious and had so many options. The rooms are big and clean. I had a accessibility room and it was perfect. The washroom had lots of handle bars to use and the shower was great. The room itself was decorated very nicely and the balcony with a view of Detroit Lake was a great view in the morning and at sunset! I would definitely stay here again

"Excellent facility with all needed services"

5
14/09/2018

We stay here every couple of years when we are in the area. Each occasion has been just excellent. Staff members are well-trained, friendly and helpful. The location is the best on Detroit Lake and offers lovely views. Can't go wrong here, first rate in every respect.

"Very clean and comfortable "

01/09/2018

This was a great place to stay, every room faces the lake! We stayed in the 3rd floor suite with had two rooms, one with two beds, bathroom tv and closet. The other room had a kitchenette , sofa sleeper, tv and a few chairs and a Great Lake view from the patio. Would definitely stay again and recommend this hotel to others.

"Inviting/Wonderful Hotel"

24/08/2018

I would definitely stay at The Lodge on Lake Detroit again and recommend it to others. The room and bathroom were spacious and very comfortable. Great access to beach/lake. Enjoyed a campfire in the evening. A spa available in the lower level. Lots of great choices for breakfast. The best coffee around - was excited they had Highland Grog!

"Beautiful, family friendly lake resort"

23/08/2018

My family stayed in the family suite for three nights. The room was comfortable and clean, the bathroom was large, and there was a door between the living room area and the bedroom, which is great when your kids go to bed hours before you do. The property was well tended. The small beach was kept very clean. I had a great massage at the spa. The included breakfast offered a lot of choices. However, what set it apart for me was the great service after we left the hotel. When we landed at our home airport on Sunday, we realized we'd forgotten my son's irreplaceable, beloved stuffed bear in the bed at the hotel. I called the hotel on the drive home and spoke to Blake, who located the bear for me and arranged to mail it to our home in California. Four days later, the bear is safely home! Thank you Blake!

"Absolutely stunning view!"

10/08/2018

This was my first time to Detroit Lakes and I am still talking about this hotel and the view from my room. Beautiful hotel, great breakfast, excellent service, relaxing beach on the lake. Everything you could want when going up north. I will be back with the family next time!!

"Attention to details"

03/08/2018

The owners of this property have ensured that the staff has everything totally perfect so you can just relax and enjoy your stay. From the clean room, to the well stocked breakfast layout, to the clean beach, and of course a staff who wants to make your stay great.

"Outstanding property"

30/07/2018

Loved this hotel! Rooms are great! Outdoor space and private beach area were perfect! There is complimentary use of paddle boats, paddle boards and kayaks. The breakfast was delicious. So many choices!

"Great hotel"

21/07/2018

We had a wonderful stay here for 2 nights when visiting family for a graduation. Friendly staff and comfortable accommodations. The kitchen in our room was a welcomed surprise. The room was very large, plenty of space. Amenities in the bathroom were a nice upgrade as well!

"Great place!"

19/07/2018

Great view of the laket and they keep the beach clean. Had paddle boards, paddle boats, dock available for use and the kids liked the pool area. The breakfast was delicious and staff were helpful. Great stay!

"Words Can't Do This Place Justice"

10/07/2018

I love the Lodge. We have been coming here as a couple since 2010. My husband grew up in northern Minnesota, when Detroit Lakes was the "big city". I think it still is... The community is charming and The Lodge's location is breathtaking. The staff are sincerely warm and friendly (including cleaning staff), and the rooms are tastefully decorated. You want for nothing when staying here. I can't imagine staying anywhere else when we're in the area. I think you will find it as welcoming as we always have.

"Excellent"

01/07/2018

Stayed here for one night what a beautiful place right on the lake very clean large suite staff so nice it was so much better than my horrible stay in Williamsburg best western last week I was never going to stay at a best western again but this has renewed my opinion

"Best place to stay in DL!"

5
25/06/2018

We happened across this gem in our annual travels to DL area. The staff is incredibly friendly, the owner is 3rd generation original owners, the food is great, the rooms are very clean, comfortable beds, and the setting is very peaceful, relaxing, and fun! This is the perfect place for couples, families with small children, teens, grandparents, etc. There is a beautiful well manicured beach, lawn, firepits, grills, a huge dock if you rent a boat or pontoon (on the lake so no fuss getting the rental to the property), and included use of kayaks/paddle boats, and stand up paddle boards. They have a happy hour, live music on Thursday (which is very loud) in the bar area, and the breakfast is really good with a MN feel. They serve lefse some days! We ordered their crab dip and flatbread pizza one night and it was fantastic. They have a spa too incase you need any pampering or want to get a mani/pedi. You can't go wrong staying here, beats all the other options by a landslide. I can't say enough good things about this place! Fun for kids of all ages!

SunnyDenver01, Thank you for taking the time to share your impression of the lodge and noticing all of the details that we and our staff have worked so hard to provide. We are glad you appreciate our grounds that really create an oasis near the city. Our live jazz is different weekly and the level of sound does vary. If you stay again in the summer on a Thursday and are flexible, let us know and we can suggest a quieter date. We appreciate that you tried most of the amenities that we have to offer and enjoyed them. We look forward to welcoming you back to The Lodge. Be Well, Scott

"Lovely view!!"

23/06/2018

Stayed just one night but very comfy beds, beautiful wood trim, a bathroom that was AAA with glass shower and lovely granite vanity. Breakfast was typical....expected a little bit more on the buffet at a premier establishment.

ExperienceCreator, Owner at Best Western Premier The Lodge on Lake Detroit, responded to this review
Dear Harriet G, Thank you for taking the time to share your experience. We appreciate your kind comments about our comfy beds and top notch bathrooms. We are wondering if you may have not had the time to fully explore our breakfast buffet? We would be open to hearing the items that you felt were missing and could be added. Some of the items that other guests really enjoy and have commented they don't find in a complimentary breakfast are as follows. Every day we make egg bake that is fresh eggs baked in an oven with fresh herbs in the summer and a rotating variety of vegetables added. We rotate between Andouille sausage and a wild rice sausage that are large in size and not what you would typically find. We have warm roasted vegetables with olive oil and roasted red potatoes or cheesy hashbrowns. Nothing is made with a microwave at our hotel. We also pride ourselves in having at least 3-5 fresh cut fruits like watermelon, cantaloupe, grapes, and strawberries in season. Most hotels will only have whole apples, oranges and bananas. We also baked our pastries daily in an oven including scones. Lastly, I almost forgot our real potato lefse-a Norwegian favorite. We of course have many other "typical items" as well. We hope you will stay again and fully explore what our breakfast has to offer. Be Well, Scott

"Nice Sunsets!"

19/06/2018

I spent one night and attended an on-sight meeting the following day. Friendly and helpful staff checked me in while a wonderful live jazz reception was being held. I enjoyed a nice dinner with friends followed by a beautiful sunset over the lake. The facility worked well for an association meeting of 50 attendees the next day.

ExperienceCreator, Owner at Best Western Premier The Lodge on Lake Detroit, responded to this review
Doug, Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts about your recent stay. So glad your meeting went well and you were able to enjoy the sunset at the only hotel in Detroit Lakes to have that feature from your room. We look forward to your next stay with us. Be Well, Scott

"Great Facility and Grounds!"

5
17/06/2018

Really nice place right on the Lake. Beach area is small, but nice. The ability to take out the paddle boats was also very nice. Facility nice and s'mores at night was fun. Breakfast is good — higher than a Hampton Inn, a bit lower than a top-end facility. Worth the extra dollars to stay here.

ExperienceCreator, Owner at Best Western Premier The Lodge on Lake Detroit, responded to this review
Thank you for your recent stay at BWP The Lodge on Lake Detroit. We sincerely appreciate your positive feedback and are delighted to hear that you enjoyed some of the extras included with your stay such as the s'mores reception at night and the ability to check out and enjoy paddle boats, kayaks & paddleboards. We're so glad you found us to be a great value and look forward to the opportunity to welcome you back the next time you are in D.L.

"Great location and amendaties"

06/06/2018

We recently stayed here while in town for family graduation. We absolutely LOVED the suite rooms which included fridge space. The amenities including pool, beach, and water activities were fantastic. The customer service was also great the whole weekend stay. The hotel also includes a hot breakfast which is always a great plus while away for the weekend. Oh- and the bon fire area with complementary smores items was a huge plus!! Very pleased with this hotel and would stay again.

"Great place to stay!"

03/06/2018

What a nice place to stay! It felt like Home. Beautiful views of the lake from either your room or lobby, cozy fireplace inside, modern & clean rooms, and friendly staff. I loved our stay and would definitely come here again!

"Wonderful Hotel and Great Place to stay"

29/05/2018

The greatest hotel ever, love coming here and staying and look forward to coming back each month. I have been staying at this hotel every month for the past 10 years and it is wonderful, they treat you like family.

"Would Recommend."

29/05/2018

Great service and room. Great Staycation spot or weekend with/without kids. Fireside next door is an excellent restaurant, and our room offered great views. Breakfast was better than the usual offerings at other places.

"Memorial Day Family Reunion"

28/05/2018

Five-Star Service, attention, and amenities. Chris and Scott's Team puts a lot of hard work into this making this property the premier lodging choice for any future visit. They had absolutely everything we'd hoped for and more, with some little surprises that put this stay over the top!

"Great and beautifully decorated"

5
19/05/2018

This hotel has great ammenities and a very helpful staff. The smores bar is just an added bonus. They offer lake front views with kayaks and boat slips. They also have a variety of spa services and an indoor pool.

"The best place to do a getaway!"

15/05/2018

What a place to getaway to and just relax and refresh. Chris and Scott Mehlhaff definitely go out of their way to make our experience unforgetable...with music, food, comfortable rooms, beautiful views of the lake, and just a beautiful lodge...the lobby is great for the evening music and food. This Best Western is more than Premier! Everything is always kept up to date and like new.

Great property. Beautiful view of Lake Detroit from every room. Awesome lobby and great room with a piano, fireplace and small bar area. Complimentary breakfast was really good with something for everyone. Coffee was great! Room was beautiful. King bed, sofa, desk and chairs, big flat screen tv, great walk-in shower, wet bar with micro, fridge, Keurig and a balcony. In fact, all the rooms have either a balcony or patio depending on what floor you're on. Hotel sits just outside of town. There are plenty of restaurants within a 2-3 mile radius. Saturday night they had live entertainment from 6-8. Staff was great. But, we had a couple issues that prevented me from giving an excellent rating. First, I had booked our reservation online through Best Westerns website and received a confirmation but when we arrived at the hotel we found out they didn't have it. After about 15 minutes answering questions and listening to the front desk staff, Katrina, talk to the main reservation people on the phone, the reason the hotel never got our reservation was because the hotel had no internet. Whew! Katrina did manage to kind of check us in but the problem didn't get solved until Saturday. It was a little stressful and being rewards members we thought maybe they'd upgrade us for the inconvenience but nothing was offered. So be it. It was also very noisy even though it was not even half full. On Saturday we heard Katrina say to her manager that they only had 9 rooms booked. I know the hotel can't prevent people from slamming their doors or talking too loudly but I was woken up on Saturday morning at 5:21 by some woman who was talking on her phone in the hallway with the speaker on. How rude. Also, the room above us must have had elephants in it. Very loud elephants. You'd think the hotel would assign the rooms accordingly if it's not busy so as to avoid noise. I'd hate to hear how noisy the hotel is when they're busy. It is a really nice hotel though and would recommend it.

"Mini Getaway"

19/03/2018

Hotel was amazing. Views from room were great and the room was a normal king room and we felt like we were staying in a suite. Other than our bed being made poorly we had no problems with our stay. Staff was excellent. Probably the cleanest hotel breakfast we've ever enjoyed. Amenities were spot on and the whole feel of the place was like staying at home. We will definitely be visiting again with more family.

"WILL be back."

11/02/2018

Stayed here for a visit to DL for a hockey tourney. Didn't get to choose the hotel, but boy am I glad we wound up here! Warm and welcoming lobby. Luke at the front desk was the NICEST and very friendly and accommodating. Complimentary breakfast was gourmet (roasted veggies, andoulle sausage, etc.) and varied from day to day. Smores in the lobby each night and wine bar with light appetizers for purchase made it so you never had to leave. Spa on site. Rooms are very spacious and bedding is very comfy complete with plenty of pillows, info on sunset and a discount at the spa. Perfect for a getaway. I can only imagine what it's like in the summer!

"Excellent service and beautiful clean hotel. Extremely satisfied with our stay"

5
09/02/2018

Would stay here again. I hope to bring entire family to this hotel in summer. Service wonderful. Beautiful family suite. Great experience over all. Staff was wonderful and very accomadating even opening breakfast very early for just my daughter and I when we had very early hockey games.

15/01/2018

Excellent place to stay. Comfortable beds, nice rooms, terrific hot tub, nice warm pool, cozy places to read a book or enjoy the fire or piano, excellent breakfast, owner and daytime desk clerk were very friendly and hospitable. I'd recommend it to anyone and hope that I have a chance to go back.

The lodge was decorated for Christmas -the view was beautiful- breakfast was delicious- our room came with a very large jacuzzi, fireplace, and the most comfortable bed I've ever stayed at in a hotel.

"A gem of a hotel"

05/12/2017

This place is unique and surprisingly cozy. It has a wonderful lobby lounge and sitting area, good food, comfortable accommodations, and very attentive employees. Having stayed at a lot of generic hotels in the same price range, this one stands out as a welcome change from the ordinary.

"Beautiful!!!"

26/11/2017

We loved our room, the full breakfast, the staff, the lake, the fireplace in the lobby ... Next time, we will book a balcony room to hopefully avoid the noise of fellow travelers. Other than that, all was wonderful!

"Loved this Up North resort!"

This hotel is beautifully decorated with Up North decor right on Lake Detroit. Loved staying there. It was spotlessly clean and well appointed. I would definitely stay there again if the need arises. Great stay!

Don't stay in hotels often, but this is the nicest that i can remember. Bathrooms were up to date and the shower was great. Beds were comfortable, slept the whole night both nights. Very little noise heard thru the walls. Great view of the lake. Lobby was comfortable and the breakfast was good. Very friendly and helpful staff.

2nd time staying at this hotel and we were not disappointed. The rooms are very big and comfortable, you can even stay in your own room in the patio and still have a beautiful view of Detroit lakes. Awesome sunset views. breakfast are always very excellent! it makes you feel at home because you're using real cutleries. If you're in Detroit lakes, a must place to stay!

We were looking for a place on the lake and came across the Best Western. Have not stayed at a BW for a long time and this one was excellent. Great staff, beautiful room and decor, and fantastic view of Detroit Lake. If you go to Detroit Lakes this is the best place to stay.

"superb stay"

16/10/2017

Beautiful location. Each room has a view of the lake from a private balcony. Lovely to sit out at night and enjoy the sunset. Although there is no restaurant on site, their are many to choose from within close driving distance. there is a bar in the lobby area, and it was nice to have a drink and sit by the fireplace. Breakfast was lovely. Plenty of food and excellent coffee choices. Would definatly stay again. Was such a lovely stay, it was hard to leave

"Heavenly"

16/10/2017

Beautiful inside and out. The fall foliage changing as you gaze out your balcony onto the lake is breath taking. The staff is wonderful and the entire experience was lovely. I can not wait to go back. This is what a getaway is suppose to be like!

We totally enjoyed our stay at this delightful Lodge! The very comfortable room, fabulous view of the sunset and Autumn colours in the yard, great breakfast and a s'mores bar--what a novel idea!! The oak motif in the decorating is so unique and in keeping with the rest of the decor! Truly a spot to come back to!

24/09/2017

We took a chance and booked the Lodge because it had a spa for the wives while the guys golfed. Had a wonderful time. Close to good restaurants and the complimentary breakfast excellent. We stayed in 3 of the lake access rooms. Beds wonderful and the walk in shower is a great asset. Only issue we had was some of the staff needed a bit more training. If they couldn't charge it back to your room they didn't know how to run a till. Would be nice if the bar opened up before 5:00.

"Relaxing Environment"

19/09/2017

I stay at this hotel at least once a month. The rooms are clean and decorated tastefully. The staff is always very helpful and professional. Beautiful view of Detroit Lake with gorgeous sunsets The also have a delicious hot breakfast.

"Very good hotel"

18/09/2017

The hotel was very good. I like it a lot. In my opinion one of the best of Detroit Lakes. Very good rooms, nice internet etc. The breakfast could be better, but it is good too. No problem with that. At night, they have a very good S'Mouse.

"Quiet Gem !!"

16/09/2017

One of our favorite hotels anywhere. Beautiful decor and exquisite grounds with natural plantings and great beach. Away from the rest of the DL hotels and restaurants so very peaceful and quiet. Wonderful breakfast, great staff; can't say enough positive about this place.

"I love this place"

10/09/2017

This is my fourth time staying here. I have now been on most of the floors. This time we were on the third floor. I loved the balcony outside the room. It is a marvelous and romantic spot to watch the sunset and have an evening glass of wine. Very helpful staff. We brought a bottle of wine and they gave us two wine glasses to use in our room. A bald eagle flew by our balcony on two different days. We saw a blue heron twice. The real treat was the loons calling both mornings and one evening. Best reason to sleep with your balcony door open. We needed directions to a place in DL and the staff were able to help. Rooms were great and clean. Beds extremely comfortable. I also liked the breakfast. We ate on the balcony both mornings.

"Lakeside Bliss"

5
02/09/2017

I stay in Detroit Lakes regularly for business. This is THE place to stay. Every room overlooks the lake. Friendly, yet quiet atmosphere. Not typical of a chain hotel, this one is detail focused, from the fruit water in the lobby and s'mores at night, to the Cottonelle toilet paper.

"Lovely hotel, nicely appointed"

5
28/08/2017

The Lodge never disappoints. The beds are comfortable, the decor is very "Minnesota Lake" - but elegant, not cheesy. We enjoy having the balcony view of the lake. The breakfast is substantail with many choices. We will stay here again.

"Very Nice."

21/08/2017

We stayed here for a quick overnight while on vacation. Check in was fast and friendly. There was a minor issue with our first room and we were immediately switched to a second room. They indicated that they also would give us a 10% discount for the trouble (we didn't ask for the discount). The room was clean and very nice. The hot tub in the room was outstanding! The balcony overlooking the lake was nice. The Smore' bar was cute and out of the ordinary. Breakfast was significantly better than the typical hotel breakfast. Upon checkout we didn't get the 10% discount that was indicated at check in. That was disappointing, but I didn't complain because we hadn't asked for a discount for a minor problem. Overall it was a great night!

Everything was excellent at this motel. Very friendly people at the check in. The motel is beautiful and located right on the lake. The breakfast was excellent and you can tell that extra efforts have been made to make the breakfast stand out. There is also a small bar open in the evenings and that was also a nice touch. Overall, the staff was excellent, the rooms were clean and nicely decorated, the entire stay was way above average. We also had a business meeting and staff came in and helped with the technology.

"Great beach!"

5
20/08/2017

Loved this place for a little family getaway. We had the king room with kitchen, great to have a fully stocked kitchen (stovetop but not oven) to make kids lunch, wash baby bottles, etc. The family 2 room suite was booked but we will definitely request that next time just to have another room and a balcony. Make sure to ask if your room has balcony. All rooms have gorgeous lake views and sunsets. Train goes by but is not loud, and my 2 year old boy loved watching them.

Nice place for a getaway, relaxing, and they have everything your need in one place. Location is very easy to access, planing on laying out on their beach today. Enjoyed the pool and hot tub, I would have wanted the water a bit warmer

"Lovely Weekend Stay"

14/08/2017

This is a very nice resort on the northeast side of Detroit Lakes (near Holiday Inn), on the East shore. The grounds are lovely with a nice, clean sandy beach. There are complimentary paddle boards, kayaks, and paddle boat for guest's use, with we really enjoyed. The buffet complimentary breakfast is above average, with a lovely variety of choices, along with organic coffee. The handicap accessible room was very comfortable with the most accomodating amenities we have seen. We enjoyed a walk out main level room to the lawn and beach area. Patio furniture outside our door to enjoy the beautiful sunset. The grounds are groomed but also pay special attention to maintaining natural habitat which is gorgeous. There is a nice nature hiking path to highlight this effort. Walking or short driving distance to many restaurants, convenience stores, and just about everything you need. The onsite spa looked lovely, although we did not use the services. The staff was very friendly and there were special touches throughout the resort, such as refreshing "lemon grass" wash towels at the front desk to refresh your face and skin after an outing, a complimentary nightly "Smore" bar (roasting your own marshmellows), and live music on Thursday nights in the lounge. This place has my highest recommendation.

This is one of the best hotels I've ever stayed at. The location is great but the staff is awesome. They have free paddleboards, kayaks, docks, campfires and music. The rooms view the lake and décor is really nice. I'd have extended my stay another day if we didn't have a full itinerary.

Always a great place to stay for work. Feels like vacation. Staff is great and the views are gorgeous. There is a beautiful restaurant near by, walking distance. Fireside, great combination. This is my only choice for the area.

Great location, great facilities, great service, would not stay anywhere else when in DL. You can't go wrong in choosing The Lodge. Wish we were living closer so we could stay there more often, friends put us on this place and we can't thank them enough!

Stayed here on business and really wished my family could have come along. It's an awesome place. S'mores at night. Beautiful private beach. Spacious and super comfortable room. Fantastic breakfast. The cranberry wild rice bread was amazing. Staff was very nice.

So glad we decided to stay here. It was a real gem! The Lodge room decor was up to date and very tasteful. The quality of the resort was excellent. The breakfast buffet was hand crafted by a chef. The view was beautiful and peaceful. Proximity to the one-mile beach drive with shops, restaurants, parks and marina in Detroit Lakes was a plus.

"Very relaxing and grounding experience"

From the fabulous massage at the on-site spa to the eagles playfully flying around near the on-site sandy beach, this was just what I needed to get away from it all for a few very nice days. Great place for solos, couples, and families alike.

I highly recommend this BW lodge on the lake for anyone who would like to enjoy a Minnesota lake experience. Nice little beach on the property, free paddle boarding and kayaking for guests, great rooms, comfy beds, and excellent free breakfast. Their professional staff is also outstanding.

Very nice, relaxing place to stay, but was a bit spendy. Had all the amenities, staff was very friendly and professional. The bed and whirlpool in the room was amazing! Really wished it would have been warmer out, so we could've enjoyed the beach area.

"A pleasure to review this hotel"

5
29/06/2017

If you look at my many reviews, you will see that a common complaint of mine is the "prefab" breakfasts at so many hotels. This one was not at all prefab! The coffee was great, the food was not just run of the mill. Scrambled eggs with basil and tomato. wild rice sausage, roasted vegetables and cheesy potatoes (they were a bit much). Beautiful room. Wonderful staff.

"Noisy Room"

4
27/06/2017

My room was located next to the kitchen and dining area. Noises such as people talking and kitchen staff stomping back and forth were so audible that it sounded as if they were right on top of us. these noises woke us up by 6:00 AM each morning and falling back asleep was impossible. Additionally, hotel guests would often gather outside our room to conversate, creating even more noise and discomfort. This specific room (208) should either be offered at a large discount or guests should be warned of it's noisy conditions

"Great hotel made a gloomy weekend fun!"

26/06/2017

Everyone was great - best hotel breakfast I have ever had. Even though the weather was poor and we couldn't take advantage of the lake this weekend, the hotel was comfortable and we still had a great time at the spa, pool, and spending time together in the comfortable common areas overlooking the lake. I'm so glad we chose to spend the weekend at The Lodge and would recommend it to others!

"Very good"

22/06/2017

Overall it was a good stay, and will probably go back, maybe with our kids next time around. The one thing that knock it down a notch for us was the bed. A little too firm for us. Maybe we are just used to our Sleep number bed, but both of us woke up with sore backs. It was much better than the budget hotels as those are like sleeping on cement. But we expected a little better for the price we paid for our stay.

Beautiful lakeside, wooded setting. Room full of amenities made for total comfort. Lobby and bar area gorgeous. Breakfast was extraordinary in providing so many choices. Sandy beach with comfortable lounge chairs. Lakeshore management efforts admirable. Mother duck and ducklings nesting nearby provided additional interest. Quiet room and outdoor environment. Small bar, but big on congeniality. Twig chairs and rockers in beautiful lobby were charming.

As nice of a hotel as you will find in North Western Minnesota, let alone Detroit Lakes proper. Clean, great hot tub, fitness area. Lake front was a plus. The drive to the downtown area where the conference was held was pretty as well

"Gorgeous lakeside resort"

25/05/2017

Lovely hotel. The decor is rustic but not in a cheesy way. There are lot of log and wood accents. The lobby area has a beautiful stone fireplace and wonderful hand-made willow furniture. I didn't use the pool or the spa but both looked very nice. All of the staff we came into contact with, even the housekeeping staff we passed in the hallways, were friendly and pleasant. The surroundings are gorgeous. All of the rooms have a view of the lake, and the grounds are well-kept. The small beach is very nice and has quite a few chairs and loungers. There are stand-up paddle boards and pedal boats that guests can use for free. The water is shallow and calm enough for children to play in. One evening around 9pm, I wandered the halls looking at the very interesting pictures on the walls provided by the Detroit Lakes Historical Society. The entire hotel was almost completely silent. I am a light sleeper and in most hotels can hear doors closing in the hall, voices in the next room, etc. I didn't hear a single thing in this hotel, except for the rain driving against the patio doors and the thunder, but I don't think any amount of soundproofing would have deadened the noise of that colossal thunderstorm! The room was very spacious, even with two queen beds, which is a refreshing change from many hotels where you can barely move around. There was a convenient kitchen area with microwave, fridge, and sink. All rooms have balconies as far as I could tell. The night lights under the bathroom counters were a nice touch. The marble countertops had lots of room for toiletries and the fan in the bathroom actually worked! There could be more hooks to hang towels, pyjamas, wet bathing suits, etc. but otherwise I had no complaints about the room and they seem to have thought of just about everything. The breakfast was the best I've had for free at a hotel. There was a wide selection of hot and cold items and the quality was good. There was a waffle station, toast, pastries, fruit, cold cereal, cooked oatmeal (not packets of instant to microwave), scrambled eggs, sausages, boiled eggs, and grilled vegetables that seemed like fesh and not frozen. I found the potatoes to be too salty but otherwise good. Everything was tasty, fresh, and properly cooked. They even had real plates and cutlery and cloth napkins, although paper plates and plastic utensils were available for those who wanted to grab something to go. I would definitely recommend this hotel. For the area, it's a 5-star hotel and I had absolutely no complaints. However, keep in mind that it's not quite the same 5-star experience as Fairmont Banff Springs or Chateau Frontenac. :)

This is a great place to stay, very friendly and helpful staff, clean room, delicious free breakfast. Now if Best Western could do something about the weather, our trip would have been perfect. It was cold and raining for our whole vacation. Bettter luck next time as we are planning on returning.

13/05/2017

This was our second stay here; both were part of a family gathering related to to events at Concordia College in Moorhead (about 55 minutes away). We did not stay here during summer months, but it looked as though the beach and boating activities were very inviting. Our grandchildren LOVED that they opened a "s'mores" station for an hour at night and they loved the pool. We used a suite where our children and 2 grandchildren shared a room (2 queen beds) and we the grandparents slept on a hide-a-bed in the living room/kitchen part of the suite. We have recommended to the hotel that they buy a mattress topper for the hide-a-bed (would have been fine for children). The suite had a beautiful balcony overlooking the lake and the bathroom and amenities were outstanding. Breakfast was excellent (grand chidren LOVED the mini waffle maker and we had the best breakfast casserole ever! I want the recipe). There is a busy train track nearby, but it did not bother us, since our room faced the lake). The staff were all so friendly and helpful and competent. The best Best Western we have been in!

This is not your typical Best Western. I go out of my way and plan my business trip when I'm in the surrounding area so I can stay at this property. I'm never disappointed! The property is beautifully maintained and has a fabulous lake view. The rooms are very spacious, super clean, updated linens, and include extra amenities in the bathroom, including lighted make-up mirrors! The breakfast included offers a lot of variety and delicious. The staff are very friendly and helpful. I would recommend this place 110%!

"Average Hotel. Don't Eat at the Bar."

14/11/2016

I was in town for business and the room was average. The bathroom vent was dirty and something sticky on the bathroom floor was the first thing I noticed when walking into the bathroom. The bed was comfortable and I had a good nights rest. The bar needs help. It was hard to order food off the menu because they were out of almost everything. I ordered a cheese burger that came served open with shredded cheese and some kind of bun that certainly was not a hamburger bun. Oh and no chips. Definitely eat somewhere else. Overall 3/5

ExperienceCreator, Owner at BEST WESTERN PREMIER The Lodge on Lake Detroit, responded to this review
Dear Joel, Thank you for taking the time to share your experience while staying at The Lodge. I want to apologize for not providing the exceptional stay we are known for. Average is not a description we hear from our guests. Your review has been used to set a new policy for cleaning our fan vents. Our fans run for 5 minutes every hour and when you turn on your bathroom light. This creates a fresh smell for your room but does cause more of a build up on the fan grates. We also have used your bar experience to make sure we are prepared for any orders placed. We don't use the "average" hamburger bun but use a ciabata bun to create a more upscale experience. We did run out of sliced cheese and chips and for that we are sorry. It appears that you paid for your burger separate from your room. Since we had 4 burgers ordered that night we are not able to figure out how to refund you for your burger. We have been trying to reach you and would like to refund that part of your experience. We look forward to a response so we can refund you for your burger. We hope that you will give us another opportunity to show you that staying with us is far beyond average and eating at our bar is also an enjoyable experience. Be Well, Scott

"Extremely Satisfed!"

07/11/2016

This hotel is one of the cleanest and friendliest I have ever stayed in. I stayed there last week for business. I did arrive in town early and stopped in to confirm the time for check in and to tell them that due to work, I would not be able to check in until the evening. I was there about noon and they told me my room was already ready and that I could check in right then if I wished. I did and was greeted my a few very friendly staff members. During my stay, I forgot the wall plug for many of my devices - I had packed only my USB cords. That ended up not being a problem as they have a box under the TV that you can charge your devices that way. The room was spacious, the bed was very comfortable, and the view of the lake was delightful. Continental breakfast was very hearty and satisfying! I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone planning a stay in Detroit Lakes.

I always stay here when I am in the area. The hotel is located on a large lake. The hotel is clean, the staff is efficient and helpful, and the beds are comfortable. All areas and rooms are well appointed. The variety of breakfast items should please everyone. I enjoy eating off of china plates, using real silverware, and cloth napkins. The S'mores party at eight o'clock is a nice touch.

My husband and I went north to see the beautiful Fall Foliage this year and came upon the Lodge at the last minute. We hadn't booked a hotel for the night, so found this one through Hotels.com and were thrilled!!! It was so unique and rustic in appearance, yet spacious with a wonderful view of the water from our balcony. The bed was a pillow top that was so comfortable. We wish we could've stayed longer!!

Found this hotel near a wedding we were attending. It's adorable. Lodge look and feel, great view of the lake, and a cozy lounge with a fireplace and s'mores you can make with the kids. Used the gym, good for basic needs. Breakfast was fine. Hotel was clean, staff were polite. Would recommend.

Staff is very friendly and helpful, rooms are hospital clean. Full breakfast is included with room stay and is excellent. It would be nice to have phone books in the rooms and transportation services available like some other top hotels. With no phone book, you really have to scratch to find taxi services. Being the hotel is two miles from main town, it would be nice if the hotel management would run a small bus to/from and around town and would be a success. Also, it would be nice to have a restaurant available at the hotel 24 hrs. Breakfast closes at 10:30 am and lunches the rest of the day are not available. Overall staying here was a good experience.

"Great location when traveling with children"

16/09/2016

We rarely can find a hotel which easily accommodates our four young boys and ourselves. Our suite was perfect, and the complimentary breakfast was a BONUS! This is the fourth hotel I have stayed at this past year (in different areas of the country) and the beds at The Lodge (mattress, pillows, sheets were BY FAR the most comfortable. We stayed for a family wedding, so the boys did not have time to swim, but next ime, we will make sure to bring our swimsuits. The view of Detroit Lake is peaceful and beautiful. I have stayed at the Lodge in previous years, and have loved taking advantage of the spa as well.

I typically stay at Holiday Inn properties but heard good things about this Best Western. I will always stay here from now on when in the Detroit Lakes area! Nice wine reception and lounge area overlooking the lake. The best breakfast buffet complete with lefse- so you know you are getting back to your roots. There is a spa downstairs if you need time to relax and refresh - complimentary paddle boats and paddle boards to enjoy the lake and really the best sunset views I've seen for awhile! Be sure to drive over to Zorbaz to complete your visit!

Pros - new property in very good condition - extremely friendly and accommodating staff from reception, to dining room, breakfast and housekeeping - quiet rooms - clean rooms (aside from a little dust on the lamp shade) - comfortable bed - modern vanity and shower - spacious room - iced citrus water available 24/7 - make-your-own s'mores bar in the evening - delicious flatbread Cons - There is a train track along the highway, so get a room away from the highway. Even though, my room was close to the tracks and when I closed my balcony door, I could not hear the train. - The PC in the business center doesn't have MS Office. Not a big deal, I saved my Excel file as pdf and was able to print it. - The baby kale salad was not kale. It was romain lettuce.

OMG. What a jewel. I was skeptical when I saw Best West but, when it was followed by Premier I decided to give it a chance. It's a small hotel. Maybe 15 rooms. It has a wood lodge look but with all the modern amenities including a bar and player piano. It has a small beach area with chairs. Lake Detroit is beautiful. Nice find on our way from Minneapolis to itasca state park.

24/08/2016

This hotel is located on the lake and has its own private beach and picnic areas. There are a few room options - we had a beautiful room with a king bed, fireplace and jet tub. The decor was 'woodsie' - appropriate for a log-style lodge and very comfortable. The only downside is the medal furniture on the deck. We took pillows from the bed to soften the seats. The hotel offers a beautiful foyer, spa, bar and small indoor pool and restaurant. Breakfast is available as part of the stay. Staff are helpful.

"Excellent first summer day in Detroit Lakes"

22/08/2016

We were really looking forward to a staying on Detroit Lake in the summer since we hadn't been there before. I chose a two queen room on the first floor so we only had to step across the lawn to get to the beach. When we got to the room we were very impressed with the furnishings and decor. Unlike any other motel room we had been in. Real artwork on the walls, cut logs made up the furniture in the room and bathroom. But we spent time in/on the lake when we checked in at 3pm. The water was full of algae and weeds, so it was tough to swim, but the beach was nice with many loungers. We were pleasantly surprised that we could use the stand up paddle boards, kayaks, and paddle boats for no charge. We did use a paddle board and a paddle boat. There is also a dock where other boats can pull up to. We also just sat on the lawn in the shade to read. The whole atmosphere was very relaxed on a summer afternoon. I did swim in the indoor pool and sat in the hot tub. That room was very nice with wood accents on the walls. The beds were very comfortable and it was very quiet to sleep. Breakfast was excellent with real dishes and silverware, eggs, cooked vegetables, meat on a steam table. There were also the usual motel continental breakfast items, but we had the hot food. This motel is in an awesome location, only a few minutes from town, which you could easily bike.

"What a wonderful place to stay!"

15/08/2016

We loved everything about this hotel - when you check in they have cold lemongrass clothes which hit the spot after being in the car for a few hours. Rooms and hotel are done in wood/pine throughout which gives it a rustic charm. All rooms face the lake; we were on the second floor and had a great view. Room was very clean, lots of pillows, all the amenities in the bathroom (nice large shower). The lodge works hard to be environmentally friendly in the products it uses/supplies, how it recycles and serves some organic items in the bar and breakfast buffet. They have four kayaks and four paddle boards that are free to guests. They also have a couple peddle boats giving you lots of options if you want to get out on the lake. There is a nice beach area with chairs and picnic tables. They also have two fire pits. And between 8-9pm you can make smores which I thought was a pretty neat treat. Hot breakfast is included and had good options; waffles, fresh baked goods, oatmeal, eggs, potatoes, sausage, cereal, yogurt and fresh fruit. There is also a bar/lounge area where you can order food in the evening and have a drink while looking at the lake. Was a 10 minute walk to the Fireside Restaurant. Really enjoyed our one night and would definitely be back!

A business associate and I planned to stop where we ended up on the day we were there. We ended up in Detroit Lake and had a little trouble finding a place we wanted to stay. We accidentally ended up at The Lodge and were thrilled. The hotel is gorgeous and the views were amazing. We both ended up with rooms with balconies facing the lake. The property is private with its own beach and has lovely amenities, most of which we didn't have time to try. While we enjoyed dinner on the lobby balcony, the food was not very good. But, the breakfast included with our room the next morning was great. If I ever have the opportunity to be around the area in the future, I will be back.

We are considering returning next year for a longer visit to be able to take in more of the sites and be able to make use of the spa @ the lodge

Lots of amenities for the guests to use including: kayaks, paddleboat, SUP's, boat slips, beach area. Fantastic view of the lake from all the rooms with balconies or patios. The Spa Within is fantastic!!!!!! Ordered food from Lola's, very good. Pool area is small but nice.

We wanted to get away for a few days and chose this hotel. It was a great choice! The rooms are spacious and clean. We had a ground floor unit that walked right out onto the hotel's sandy beach area. The hotel offered free paddleboards, kayaks, pedal boats, and fire pits in the evening. They also had an outstanding breakfast buffet. At 8PM every evening there was a small smores buffet for the kids to enjoy. It was a great time and we would stay here again.

We had a family group and stayed in 3 rooms at The Lodge for 3 nights. It started off right, by the staff ensuring our rooms were not just close together (as we had requested) but that they connected so we could vacation as a family. And, it got even better! The rooms are very clean, spacious and nicely decorated. The location on the lake is the BEST. We had great views of the beach and lake from our patio. There are free kayaks and paddle boards for use by hotel guests. We're already talking about another trip we enjoyed it so much. This place exceeded our expectations and there's not a thing I'd change.

Doug at the Holiday inn screwed up our reservation over the biggest weekend of the year at the Lake! Robin at the lodge came to our rescue and found us the last 3 rooms at their hotel! The place is gorgeous a total hidden treasure! Jim and Mari were so accommodating! You would never have known the hotel was full! The rooms are gorgeous free breakfast a fun little bar from 5-10 and a spa. We had fun on the free paddle boards. We got s boat slip and it was clean and easy to use. Loved the s'more parties and the free fire pits. For the same money we will never go back to holiday inn. Thanks for the incredible and relaxing vacation!

Stay here every couple of years and it is always excellent. Friendly staff, excellent location on the Big Detroit Lake. 1st floor rooms (and maybe others) have full kitchens for maximum flexibility. Can not go wrong here.

"Great family vacation."

We had a family reunion in Detroit Lakes and as it turns out, most of our family had reserved rooms at the Lodge. With rooms that opened to the beach, it was perfect for kids. The Lodge offered free boats to use on the lake. We look forward to staying there in the future.

We had a family get-together and decided to stay here instead of a hotel downtown somewhere. It was a great decision. There was something for everyone to do. The rooms are all facing the lake and very comfortable. All of us agreed we could do this again.

"Offers a Small Beach front and nice grassy lawn"

Our daughter is attending Concordia Language Villages (Chinese Immersion Camp) in Calloway,MN this week. Instead of flying back and forth to South Texas, I decided to stay the week nearby and get some MUCH needed RR. My mother recommended this hotel, which is a Best Western. To be frank, Best Western hotels are not very nice in Texas. So I was leery. As the hotel snob that I am, I must admit, this hotel passes the test. First off, it faces Detroit Lake and has a small BEACH front entrance! There are picnic tables, barbque grills, paddle boats, etc! It is lovely. There is a decent sized indoor pool and hot tub. My daughter enjoyed it after a day of flying. It was clean and enjoyable. All rooms have a view of the lake (and I think balcony or patio). The breakfast room offers outdoor seating that looks over the lake. The breakfast that is included with your room currently offers Gluten Free options! The food was above average. I wished there had been a expresso machine or Cappuccino machine (even if I had to pay for those separately I would have). A tiny bar is located in the Great room that has a grand piano and fireplace. You can watch the sunset from there or your room. The rooms have mini fridges, coffee makers, lots of lamps, etc. The bathrooms are spacious. Everything is very clean. The front desk staff, bartender, housekeepers all seemed to genuinely care about you. I'll be back next summer.

"Lakeview rooms and nice amenities"

20/06/2016

My husband and I were in Detroit Lakes for a family reunion and stayed here for two nights on Father's Day weekend. It has lakeview rooms, complimentary breakfast and some other perks, including offering spa services, etc. What a nice find outside of town! It's quiet, with environmentally friendly bath items, in-room refrigerators, complimentary wifi, and rentable lake items. We will definitely stay there again.

"A Great Experience!"

My wife and I have stayed numerous times at The Lodge on Detroit Lakes and always enjoyed it. The staff, breakfast and rooms are excellent. I highly recommend The Lodge for anyone desiring a lakefront, resort experience!

""The Best" Best Western in Detroit Lakes"

Located right on Detroit Lake, the BW Premier Lodge was an outstanding value for the price. We were able to get a walk-out room to the lakefront which is all in traditional lodge style. The help provided by the check-in staff of Valerie and Mari was much more than expected. They also pointed out some sites to see and visit while in the main part of town. The property is fairly new (10YO) and very well maintained inside and out. The pool/Jacuzzi area is inside and also well kept and managed. They have a bar that serves delicious Denver Bulldogs and Tequila Sunrises for a romantic interlude in the beautiful lounge area in front of the rock fireplace. You can watch the sun set to the west while sipping and chatting with your loverly. Sunday breakfast comes with the room ($$) and you notice I didn't say anything like a "continental breakfast" because it certainly wasn't. Enjoy your visit to the Detroit Lakes area at the BWPL properties.

"Lakeside Relaxation"

04/06/2016

We had a wonderful mid-week experience. The rooms are extremely clean, comfortable and well appointed...love the jazz upon arrival. The staff and owners are very friendly and helpful. Very relaxing-spa, lobby/bar, gorgeous views/sunsets from our balcony, loungers on the beach. We rented a pontoon for a 1/2 day and it was convenient to use The Lodge's dock. A nice walking path right outside the front doors. The unlimited fresh fruit flavored water, tea, coffee bar as well as the evening s'more bar were nice touches. The breakfast had many healthful and appetizing options. We will definitely be back for another dose of lakeside relaxation!

"Great setting, consistent service, wonderful lakeside views"

5
04/06/2016

A first-class rural Minnesota resort hotel, The Lodge on Lake Detroit has lakeside rooms, resort amenities, meeting space for business, and excellent service. Rooms are well designed and appointed. I like the little touches at The Lodge such as the historic photos in the common areas and rooms. Complementary breakfast is among the best you'll find. Limited bar service most evenings. Top notch hospitality from a well-trained staff. Thank you, Robin!

"One of my best hotels ever"

01/06/2016

This was my second stay at this hotel. I average 40 nights a year in hotels all across America. I would put this hotel in my top three. Everything about this hotel is first class. The staff is friendly, knowledgeable, and courteous. My room had a kitchenette that had everything you would need to fix and eat a meal. It even had a dish washer. The towels are plush, the bed comfortable. and everything worked. The place is spotless. It is located on a large lake. I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel.

17/05/2016

I love staying at this property, the hotel is well maintained and the staff are super friendly. Great amenities and a fabulous view and small beach area. The breakfast is a great variety and the small bar in the hotel offers a number of snacks in the evening which is handy. Pool and hot tub are a bonus for cold or rainy days. I would definitely recommend staying here!

"Great get away!!"

Right on Detroit Lake. Every room has a view. Very spacious and comfortable. Staff is very professional and helpful. Great for family or pampering. Many elite services in-house - massages, facials, etc. Recommend trying Spanky's for dinner - great food.

"Amazing View!"

09/05/2016

I stayed at the Lodge for business last Tuesday. I was a late check in so missed out on the amazing views. I woke up and was running like a mad woman trying to get on the road when I saw the sun rising over the lake...I was stunned! The staff was awesome, rooms clean and beautiful but nothing beat that amazing view! I will be back.

"You won't want to leave!"

5
04/05/2016

You will not regret staying here. If I could give more than 5 stars I would. This hotel, staff and service are better than most top hotels around the world I have stayed in. What it makes it amazing is not the beautiful, clean, spacious rooms with an amazing view of the lake...isn't not the wonderful, attentive staff....it's not the amazing breakfast buffet (included in your stay) nor the stunning lobby...its the LITTLE DETAILS that amaze you around every turn. Like hot, lemon towels so you can freshen up while checking in, it's the soft jazz music playing as you enter your room upon arrival, it's the infused water they have available, the lighted make-up mirror in the bathroom and a nightly smore bar! Don't get me started on the bathroom...it's like a spa! I wanted to take the shower head with me and the shower...it fits more than one person! :) The hotel is located in a wonderful location so you can enjoy a run/walk along the lake and build up your appetite for the breakfast buffet! It is HUGE! And, the staff was so well executed that no matter what time you came...it looked like it just opened. Everything was fresh. It had a yogurt bar, waffles, pastries, quiche, sausage/bacon, oatmeal, english muffins, roasted veg's and potatoes, 6 different coffees, juice, variety of tea, and LEFSE! A Minnesota/Norwegian tradition. And, if you want family or friends to join you who aren't staying at the hotel...they may pay $10 for the buffet. The pool was nice...not huge and the only thing I can recommend is a clock in the pool area so we knew we had to leave although we didn't want to. Can't wait to return!

"Member # Problem"

21/04/2016

Did not ask member # so I didn't get credit for stays (1-2 week each) x 6. However, the sunset view room over the lake was beautiful. The room was clean and comfortable . Staff were nice. The breakfasts last year had too much meat and eggs and not enough healthy choices. But this year they have added roasted vegetables, nuts, raisins and oatmeal to the already plentiful fruits and dry cereals with waffles and pastries.

We had the best time at The Lodge on the Lake! It was clean and comfortable. The lake was clear and the kids got to put their feet in and play in the sand. I would definitely recommend to others. The food was tasty and pool area was relaxing. It would be great in the summer!

ExperienceCreator, Owner at BEST WESTERN PREMIER The Lodge on Lake Detroit, responded to this review
We appreciate your feedback about your recent stay, and are so glad to hear you and your family enjoyed your stay. Thank you for your compliments about the cleanliness and comfort of your room, the pool and food. Yes, The Lodge is also a fun place to be in the summer, too, when the outdoor fire-pits are available for guests, and when the beautiful rain gardens are in full bloom by the lake. We hope you will be able to come back and visit us again sometime soon - maybe this summer!

I give this hotel a 10. Every stay has been wonderful. I traveled here for business but would definitely consider this hotel for a pleasure trip as well. The staff went out of their way to assist when assistance was needed. I loved the breakfast selections--both hot and cold items were available. There were lots of breakfast items to choose from--even great healthy choices too.

"Fantastic!!"

20/03/2016

We stayed here for our anniversary. It was WONDERFUL! Peaceful relaxing atmosphere. Really clean. BEDS ARE SO COMFORTABLE! Pool area was clean, air was clear (no strong chemicals). Breakfast was really tasty with lots of variety (hot and cold). Different kind of sausage every day. What a treat. BUT THE BEST PART was the service. The staff were excellent! AMAZING CUSTOMER SERVICE!! We had a fantastic weekend!

All was good, Staff members are very professional. Very nice place to stay. Hot tub is large and spacious. Breakfast is good. Would have liked to visit the spa to get a massage, hopefully the next time I stay in DL I will be able to schedule this time for myself.

The hotel is really nice. The rooms themselves are spacious, including a small balcony, fridge and microwave, and a sink as well as a desk. The grounds are really nice, and you're only a quick 6 minute drive from the central DL beach. Breakfast is very good and complimentary which is always nice. Lots of natural sunlight, big windows. The heated pool and hot tub are also a nice touch.

Beautiful hotel, great service,friendly,wonderful location,cleaning very comfortable.They also gave town information like restaurants ,shoppes,ect. In my option the setting of the Hotel was a big part of my stay. The pool and the hot tub were also clean and inviting.The breakfast was good for a continental . I would love to stay at this Hotel the next time i come to Detroit Lakes.

"The only place to stay"

14/01/2016

I am really not sure how Elizabeth J. could rate this hotel so low... I have stayed at The Lodge at least 6 times for business while in Detroit Lakes. I have always been treated fantastic! The staff has gone above and beyond getting me rooms during their busy seasons. When you walk in, you will be overwhelmed by the relaxing atmosphere. It is a gorgeous hotel, with fantastic rooms and even better staff. The beds are extremely comfortable and the rooms are always very clean. I am not sure what I would do if I couldn't stay at The Lodge when visiting. There is simply not a better hotel in the area. I suspect Elizabeth J. may be working on behalf of other hotels in town... Sad they have time in their day to try and beat up the great people at The Lodge. Shame....Shame....

"Terrible Customer Service"

11/01/2016

Need new desk staff at night. Wow. Issues with jetted tub, loud guests and not answering the front desk phone. When finally able to reach the staff, got yelled at/it was our fault. Checked out in the middle of the night and drove home. When talked with the Manager the next day, she said she would credit us, but that is it. Good luck.

ExperienceCreator, Owner at BEST WESTERN PREMIER The Lodge on Lake Detroit, responded to this review
Thank you for providing feedback regarding your recent stay at our property. On behalf of our entire team, I would like to apologize for not exceeding your expectations. We were sorry to learn your stay was not a typical, positive one & that you left by 12:30 am. Management issued a full refund the next morning. Our team strives every day to provide superior customer service. We used your feedback to ensure we provide better service in the future. We also followed up on the whirlpool & found it to be in working order. It has a special purge cycle that blows out any water remaining in the air jets 20 min. after all the water has drained out of the tub. If any of the buttons on the control key pad are touched when the purge cycle is activated, it may trigger another drying cycle to run. Although we are not sure if this is what happened during your stay, it is unfortunate if this disrupted your rest. We hope you will consider staying with us again so that we have another chance to provide you with a superior experience

I don't often review hotels, but this place warrants a great review! The staff, the building, the rooms, the lobby, everything was wonderful! I would not have changed a thing! The room was extremely clean, the entire place was inviting, I felt at home. All rooms face the Lake, and I couldn't help myself but to be relaxed during my stay here. The staff was so helpful with any question no matter what it was, and I was actually sad to leave! I hope to plan a trip for fun with friends on my next visit there, I will be back to stay here again! The breakfast was delicious, and the choices were wonderful! Plus since it's Holiday time, they had a beautiful tree decorated in their lobby as well. I would definitely recommend anyone I know to stay at this hotel, in fact I've already told many about my stay here!

Went on a weekend get away with two other women. The room was wonderful - clean and well decorated. Actually was a suite since it was two rooms plus a small kitchen. Every room overlooks the lake. Very relaxing. We also visited the spa which was great, too.

Highest quality hotel we've ever been pampered in! Breakfast was a lovely buffet of yummy choices. Be SURE to get there before SUNSET with your camera ready! Plush but north-woods rustic with even under the counter night lights in the huge bathrooms! We will be SURE to stay here again on our travels through Minnesota! VERY QUIET as room faces the lake-view.

My mom and I stayed here for a couple nights while I was in from Phoenix. My parents live in DL and I have made several trips over the years. This was my first time at The Lodge. Wow! Excellent service from the moment we walked in. Our room was beautiful and I love how all of the rooms face the lake. The lobby was gorgeous, and I enjoyed my morning coffee by the fireplace. The continental breakfast was appreciated and had a good selection. We also enjoyed the spa services which were phenomenal! I utilized the work out room both days and was so thankful for the amenities. It was everything I needed. I hope to stay again in the future. I highly recommend The Lodge!

From top to bottom, inside and out, from room to facility to staff...complete satisfaction! First trip to Minnesota and, therefore, to The Lodge and the hospitality that the entire staff provided will certainly ensure a return trip back this spring! Clean, spacious room, beautiful views and a cozy place to enjoy a relaxing time. More HR Managers should follow the lead of The Lodge in recruiting professional, accommodating, welcoming staff (such as was provided) by the staff at The Lodge...job well done and THANK YOU!

22/11/2015

The facility is on the lake, attractive and well maintained. Sleeping rooms are spacious and well appointed. The meeting room accommodated our group of about 60 well including AV equipment and technical assistance. Breakfast was included in our rate and was delicious while also offering many options for attendees with food allergies. A formal dinner with live music and silent auction were hosted in a beautiful lake view setting with a cozy fireplace. All staff were welcoming, helpful and available when needed.

I was concerned when I arrived about the train noise since the tracks were right across the highway, but no worries. It appears that all of the guest rooms face the lake, and they have lovely views. In addition, I enjoyed the kitchenette that was in my room, I could make coffee on the stove. The rooms were immaculate and spacious. The hotel staff were wonderful. I would definitely recommend if you are going to the Detroit Lakes area.

"A Destination that is a Vacation in Itself"

01/10/2015

Although we were only passing through, this Best Western is a vacation whether you are staying for one night or for one week. We arrived at The Lodge on Lake Detroit after a very long day on the road in our subcompact and immediately were transported to a totally great relaxing environment. The lodge itself is an impressive modern, yet rustic appearing, structure sitting directly on Lake Detroit. Dave on the front desk provided a royal welcome and supplied us with information on an array of things to do and see within the surrounding communities. All of the rooms face the lake, and our upper floor room had everything we could have asked for...not the least of which was a great view of the lake. There are numerous activities available for guests to sample. We took advantage of strolling through the grounds and watching a magnificent sunset while enjoying drinks in the hotel's cozy bar. We went to sleep listening to the waves on the lake and the wind in the trees. The next morning we enjoyed an impressive breakfast prepared by Oscar the cook. In short, this is a great place to kick back and relax after a day on the road.

"Feels like coming home"

30/09/2015

This is our second time here and typically you're a little let down after the first trip, but that was not the case here. It feels like coming home. The staff is friendly, the rooms clean and the hot breakfast delicious. This time we took a room on the 3rd floor and loved it, although the 1st floor is nice too with a walk out patio. Great sunsets and quiet room. LOVE!

29/09/2015

We were pleasantly pleased with our visit to this facility! The room was so nice and rustic with lots wood used in the decor. Our balcony room gave us the perfect view of Lake Detroit. The sunset that evening was spectacular! The bed was comfortable, and the bathroom featured a walk-in shower! We chose to eat dinner at the hotel, and the food was delicious, as was the morning breakfast buffet. The buffet had numerous selections of prepared breakfast foods that were delicious! We highly recommend this property!
