Lodge on the Lake Hotel
Ranked #1 of 1 Hotels in Darien Center
Reviewed 11 August 2016

This lodge was a reminder of a mini "Great Wolf Lodge". The rooms were huge and comfortable. We loved the pool and peaceful respite option to walk to and from Darien Lake Theme park. Older children could stay at the park, while younger or older could hang out at the hotel It was a great set up! The staff was very helpful!

Room Tip: Third floor is quiet, but if you are staying facing the pool it could be louder.

I arrived in mid afternoon to a frustrated looking group. Turns out a very recent reservations system upgrade was being learned. My patience was rewarded by the manager with a room upgrade and free meal vouchers for our entire (two day) stay. That saved us a lot of money (and all the food was fine, especially the pizza). All staff was friendly and engaging, rooms were fine. Go see them.

My family of 4 stayed here and were very happy with it. I forget what package we purchased but we got 1 night stay, 4 tickets to the park which we could use for 2 days, free parking, free large pizza, and 4 breakfast buffets for around $350 - well worth it! The walk from the hotel to the park was about 10 minutes. It's too bad they don't have a little shuttle for people who have disabilities from the hotel to the park. The path was well lit at night too. And the hotel had a little snack bar that had some nice variety. Easy check in with very friendly staff and the rooms were very clean. We did not use the pool but it looked very nice. We will definitely stay there again!

I was actually unimpressed; I don't typically expect much out of a hotel room other than being clean and sanitary. We purchased the suite and for the price point we were expecting a suite with 2 rooms, 2 queen beds, and 2 bathrooms, but what we actually got was a standard room with another room that had a couch, kitchen island type thing, and fireplace. So they advertised it literally to mean 2 rooms, that had bathrooms, and the 2 queen beds in one room with a converted attached standard room turned into a living-room.

After driving four hours, realizing the predicament that we found ourselves in, and surrendering to the situation, we started to look around the room. Everything seemed fine, until we saw some old nasty socks, a sticky coffee table in that stupid suite not a suite living-room, and some dust.

The front desk staff was super accommodating, helpful, and the cleaning staff came up quickly and courteously cleaned the room without problems.

All in all its a decent place to stay, just don't waste your time money and effort on a suite, and if you have problems let them know.

Overall I rate this place: Just as disappointing as when I scored my first touchdown and looked up into the stands and realized my dad was never coming back.

We managed to get the one night vacation package. It was well worth the price tag! We got to stay on premises and make everyone happy. The girls went to the Disturbed /Breaking Benjamin and the adult went back to the lodge and relaxed with a cold beverage(wink wink). The lodge rooms are very nice. Would recommend this deal!
