Guest reviews for The Lodge at Cedar River, Shanty Creek Resort

1 out of 5

Unless you really like golf, stay away!

Pros: nice staff, well kept golf course
Cons: uncomfortable room, overpriced restaraunt, hideous interior
I hate starting with complaints, but there are just so many. Here's the list: The lobby was sparse and underwhelming, the whole place was detailed and decorated with plywood, the sofa in the room was hard as a park bench, the bed felt like I was sleeping on a stone slab, the shower head was so crusted with calcium that it blocked some water flow, and the "grill" was overpriced for the low quality food. The staff was friendly, although oblivious to how bad this place is. The hotel sits right on a golf course, but guests still need to pay to play. I didn't stay around long enough to see if there was breakfast. As soon as I cleaned up in the morning, I checked out and drove away. #Never to return...#
