Best part of experience were the views, both from the balcony and the main great room/dining area. Appreciated the nicely updated bathroom, and am hopeful they will soon begin updating/replacing the mattresses and carpeting in the rooms. All beds in my room had lumpy uncomfortable mattresses. There was also peeling wallpaper/paint in my room. Something that really bothered me was...

I have such mixed feelings about this place. All the staff I interacted with were very nice. The view from our room was beautiful... But I really struggled with the rest of the experience. I don't want to make a long string of criticisms, just to be negative, but the place really needs some TLC. There was trash under one...

I'm sorry to hear of the issues you encountered. Yes, we are going though some remodeling and updating. We try very hard for this to have as minimum an impact as possible. We hope you decide to visit us again in the future and see the changes we are working on.

Deer Creek State Lodge is one of the finest in Ohio. We go in the winter for several reasons. 1) prices are great! 2) Beautiful views of the lake 3) Lodge is family friendly. 3) Its rustic charm and cozy fireplace are both functional and gives you a sense of peace. 4) Its our family time between winter and summer...

First the good part; it's short. The location is fabulous. The hotel sits on a great piece of property overlooking Deer Creek Lake. The views of the lake are terrific and there is plenty to do: hiking, swimming, boating, tennis and golf among them. I was there for a wedding so I can't speak to the conference facilities. The other...

The setting of this lodge is beautiful - an Ohio State Park with hiking trails, recreation areas, a scenic lake and so much more. The rooms are a bit pricey - I got an off-season special wedding block rate for $129.99 plus lots of taxes. The person at the desk told me that most of the rooms were over $180.00...

So I stayed at the lodge to attend a conference. I was given a loft room which sleeps 8 people so there was plenty of room however, when I walked into the room I walked into a huge spider web. Most of you would think that's not really a big deal but when you're a person with bug phobia it's...

We stayed here on a weekend in mid September with high school students. This is an old facility but it is very charming setting.

I went to the restaurant at the lodge and the food was sub-par. I had lunch Rueben with coleslaw $10. The view is nice, but with a closer look the windows are dirty and the roof overhang outside looks like it hasn't had attention in years. The slaw had way too much mayo so my nice waitress asked if I...

I apologize your lunch didn't meet your expectations. I will pass your information on to our Chef for him to follow up on. I agree it is a great view and that is why our windows are professionally cleaned once per month and in house as needed. The overhang is done every spring and I will follow up on that...

What a wonderful weekend. Our teenage children enjoyed themselves, no xbox! The staff was incredibly hospitable and helpful. The young man preparing omelets taught our son how to make them. Rooms were clean, beds comfortable and so much to do or simply enjoy nature. We will definitely return! A thankful Westerville family.
