Some of the reviews I read compared the Desert Lodge to a "Motel 6"...I have to say that they were being too generous. This place is a dump, with broken lamps in the room, old look, no updates, and just terrible. Someone raved about the pool. OMG, it is small and very unattractive. When I complained about two lamps not...

I had an amazing time with my best friend staying here at Desert Lodge! The stay was so peaceful and serene. Just minutes away from the downtown shopping area, which was perfect for us! They have an awesome room service menu for breakfast lunch and dinner. The manager Eric was very helpful, friendly , and polite. I would rather stay...

Desert Lodge reminds me on the good old days .... Very charmy, a place to relax and hang out. So close to nature AND downtown. South Lykken Trailhead is just around the corner. Clean rooms, nice pool area and friendly & helpful staff. Will come back for sure!

I gotta admit, I took my chances in booking a room at this hotel, even though I've read mostly negative reviews about this place on hotels.com. Rooms were pretty cheap, so I went ahead and booked it. When I got there, you can tell that the property was in dire need of refurbishment, and guests were not that classy. Check-in...

Ok so the best part of my stay was that they were available at 11pm at night last minute reservation. The worst part was a dirty room, stained towels and wow. I simply offer this review as a heads up.. If you have no where else to go.. This is the place to stay! I had no place else and...
