Verified Reviews of Wildwood Lodge

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"I scheduled online for an EXEC KING but because I asked for lower level facing a certain parking lot"
Overall Score3.0/ 5
At check in I didn't get the exec king! I wish the clerk would have told me that by asking for a lower level I wasn't going to get the exec king. The room didn't have a tub! It was a room designed for someone with mobility concerns or disabled. I didnt need that. THE ROOM appeared TO BE in need of some TLC The breakfast buffet was not what I expected. HOUSEKEEPING KNOCKED ON OUR DOOR AT 9am ! ?? The door entry device was a pain! I had to knock on the door to be let in by the person I was sharing the room with. Not what I expected after reading all of the review before choosing this hotel! Finally we called the desk around 7 or 8pm for an extra blanket but they never came. So, when I walked up to the desk around 9:30, The guy behind the desk sai, “oh, didn't they deliver that to you”? No, honestly, I do not think I will staybthere again! I like the location!

Testimonials icon
"This is a great tool and I will highly recommend it to others. Loved getting quotes from all different hotels in the area. It not only saved me countless hours of blind calling, but it took out the guesswork of where hotels are and what they are offering. I loved being able to check out their websites before dealing directly with the manager at the hotel." D.O. - Hershey, PA
