Reviewed 22 May 2013

Overall a very nice place. Great location, good value, clean and beds were comfortable. Nice new flat screen TV on the wall. Make sure you request extra towels as they gave us two and we had 1 adult and two kids. Bathroom is nothing grand and do not expect the tons of soap bars or the luxry shampoo that you get at the higher $ Chains, like Marriott. But for one quick trip for a soccer tournament, it was great. The office closes early and once they are closed they don't reopen until the next morning. So not sure how to get any extra towels or soap, etc.

Room Tip: Request one on first floor so you can park and walk in. A little noisey from the road to Wrightsvil...

the person who wrote dump, not sure you stayed at the waterway lodge most rooms have been remodled if you walk into a room and dont like it you need to request another room then not at the end of check out trying to get something free. Maybe you sould have gone to a beach where other people don't go.

Room Tip: rooms are so pretty and updated, pool area great and staff awesome

We stayed at the Waterway Lodge April 6th weekend of 2013 and loved it. We had checked online for other hotels and this one had the best rates. We had stayed there two summers ago and love the proximity to some of our favorite restaurants. The room is the perfect size for a couple. It is all you need for a quick weekend away.

Room Tip: We stayed on the first floor in a king room. It had a jacuzzi tub.

I cannot believe they're asking $600 a week or $1,000 a month for this old, run down place in need of renovations! I don't know what room the picture show's but it's not the one we stayed in.

When you make reservations they glorify the place.

Pool adjecent to busy roadway. Very noisy.

Inadequate service, the kids at the front desk couldn't care less if you have a problem.

We had previously stayed at this Lodge in a room and we truly loved it. We booked a one bedroom condo for our recent stay Thanksgiving week-end. The price was high but we were in town for a family reunion and we expected the rates to be higher on a holiday. The condo was a major disappointment.
It was dirty, ants in kitchen area, no linens for the sleeper sofa, bathrooms not clean, no soap in bathroom, 2 bath towels, one hand towel, no bath mat, tub and toilet dirty! Towelbar had been pulled off the wall. Dishes in the "fully equiped kitchen" were dirty. TV in living room area not viewable, etc. When we expressed our concerns we were told the manager would be in to talk to us. He never showed. No reduction in price offered as the person at the desk was not authorized to do anything. She did bring us linens,washed the glasses in the kitchen area and brought us soap for bath and kitchen sink. Needless to say we were frustrated and disappointed in the lack of concern and service. We stayed in unit 401. We understand that these are privately owened condos at this lodge, The management is NOT doing it's job. We are also sorry that we will not stay here again as we love the area and the location. We expect more when paying $200 a night. I hope the owners and or management read these reviews.
