Beautiful property and Lodge. Very good value for the money. Clean rooms with comfortable beds. I try to stay here everytime I am in the area.

The Lodge is one of my favorite places to stay. It is unique, quaint, historical and beautiful. The food and service are extraordinary. Top the stay off with the boat trip! The thing i dislike the most is having to leave and go home!

Wonderful experience step back in time to a place where wealthy guests were treated like in the 30's. Very lovely grounds at the beginning of the Springs to the Wakulla. If you're expecting modern new amenities, this is not for you! The dining was top notch service. Recommend!

This lodge was built in the 1930’s, no tv in room but checker and chess tables in the beautiful lobby. Last night we had a fire in the fireplace in the lobby. There is a restaurant on sight.

Amazing setting in a State Park with a beach right on the spring. Take the boat tour of the spring and river. It is so worth the $8.

Unique lodge built in 1937, trails need to be marked better. We (75 year old) did the short loop. I would have liked a map on trail to show where I am. Got snack in cafe, ice cream was good but peanuts were too salty. Breakfast at restaurant was good.

The service was 5 star. The hotel all though it’s almosy 100 years old is updated and extremely cooll

Historic lodge makes this stay a special occasion. Especially enjoyed boating excursion on nearby river.

Everyone on staff was friendly and helpful, from the front desk and the maids to the restaurant servers and the tour boat captain ! The river tour was fun and educational - a highlight of our stay in addition to the excellent food and the elegant feel of “Old Florida.” What a refreshing change from the commercialized motels !

The front desk hard to locate. Had to wait to talk about check in. Was told rudely check in was only at 3 even though there was very few guests. The soda fountain was very bad. The lady waiting on customers was grumpy because it was cold. Very few food items were microwaved and over priced. Looked more like a storage unit. The beds were very old and horrible. Loved the antiques. Grounds were beautiful. The restaurant very overpriced microwaved and not very good. The boat ride was Awesome. The building was Awesome. It is sad it is a state park and run so very poorly.

No TV in rooms, only in lobby which gave a completely different atmosphere. Thurs/Fri/Sat offers a piano player using karaoke equipment for evening sing along. Great meals and free breakfast in formal dining room plus a snack bar/souvenir shop. Enjoyed boat tour and swimming in 69 degree spring water. There's a high dive platform for viewing manatees below. Easy hiking trails and park benches to sit with coffee viewing the Wakulla River, The hotel is on National Historic Register so has maintained old architectural features like ancient elevator.

It was built in the 30's and has remained to tell what Florida was like then, it is not a hotel on an expressway but a living experience of the past to enjoy.

The area is quiet and tranquil. We visited with our son who is working on an archaeological dig next to the hotel

We had driven 4 hours only to find the Inn in the middle of a controlled burn with heavy smoke in the area.When we tried to check in the desk clerk said we didn't have a reservation because Expedia had problems the last couple of days. The reservation was made through Orbitz.We were told they had sold their last room 30 minutes ago. We had to travel 30 minutes to the nearest city and pay $60 per night extra for the 3 night reservation. I will not be booking again.

Staying at Wakula Springs is a wonderful outing. The setting and the wildlife are exceptional. The hotel has a very well-trained staff and the dining experience is excellent. The hotel is a wonderful property; however, the financial cuts to the State Park Facilities shows in the furnishings of the hotel. Everything is very clean and well-cared for. Hats off to the staff for maintaining such a grand facility on a limited budget. Loved being there!

Old hotel in great condition complete with full service dining room. Don't expect to sit in your room and watch TV (there are none). There is wifi but a boat tour or swimming in the spring is a great reason to stay here.
