Just returned from a 2-day stay at Lodge on the Lake. There is plenty of parking and check-in was a breeze, no crowds when we arrived at 1pm. The setting is much like a smaller-scale Great Wolf Lodge motif, only a little understated. Our room wasn't ready when we arrived so we went to the park. When we returned at 3 we were given our room on the second-floor. As soon as I opened the door the first thing I saw was a large rip in the sofa upholstery. No big deal, but not the best way to start. We also found the room to be pretty small, contrary to some reviews here that suggested the rooms were big.
That said, the hotel is clean and the staff is friendly, and you really cannot beat the convenience of a 5-minute walk around the lake to the theme park. The kids enjoyed the pool there as well, although a hot tub would also be nice.
We are not campers, so this is really the best choice if you're going to Darien Lake.More
