Usually when one is trapped in eating in one's accomodation, disappointment can occur. Not so with this restaurant; one night of elegant dining; and one of completely gourmet bar food. It will never disappoint!

Would rather pay $10 each for the convenience of eating breakfast at the hotel as the surrounding area is very peaceful. Free breakfast was HORRIBLE! Powdered eggs, cold oatmeal, cold stale tortillas, very stale cheap nasty muffins. Very sad. The Apple was good. LOL. People...More

Stayed here for a birthday "get away" weekend. Good location for our needs. Room was quite large and therefore comfortable while we were actually in the room. The biggest drawback was that for the size of the room, there was only one comfortable chair. One...More

I am planning a 9 people wedding dinner and scouting many restaurants in Town. We are Italians so we want to eat something we do not have at home. I am familiar with the area of Lodge on the Desert but never been inside. I do not know the ambiance. It is a very small private dinner and my mother is a retired Executive chef so I am going crazy to find the right place!
