    Really enjoyed the staff at the Lodge on the Desert, from checkin, to the restaurant, to check out. Friendly, professional, and helpful. Room was spacious, beds comfortable. Had supper and breakfast at the restaurant, both meals were delicious.

    Three small things. Shower faucet needed fixing. Grout cleaned. All LED lights need to be changed out from 100 watt cool white to a more softer pleasing brightness. Everything else was great.

    Beautiful place to stay and nice restaurant. Negative is after 3 weeks we are still waiting on a refund for the extra night we had booked and not used as our flight back home was a deal earlier than plan. It leaves a bad taste when they don’t go the extra mile as promised.
