We have stayed at the Lantern for at least 5 years. We love it there! It is not too crowded and has a great list of extra activities for kids. We love going to Santa's village and then chilling at the pool at night. It is also very reasonably priced!

We love the Lantern and go every year. The grounds and pools are exceptional, the playground is excellent, and my kids love the small petting zoo. There is awesome hiking nearby and Santa's Village across the street. I can't wait for this year's trip!

First time stay over Memorial Day weekend. What a great place - will definitely stay there again! The room was clean and well appointed; no appliance or random weird noises. Despite being on the second floor near the stairs, we didn't hear foot traffic/noise. That was awesome - because who wants to be woken up early on a holiday weekend?...

We stayed here for three nights and relly enjoyed our stay. My husband checked in and set up the camper only to find that the family next to us had a dog that barked non-stop. He asked for a relocation and it was a much better match for us. The Resort was easy to find and everything was clean and...

I just stayed at the Lantern Resort Motel for 3 nights. This is the first review I've ever written and I am motivated to write it because of the quality of the customer service my family received.

This motel was a great value and is across the street from Santa's Village. There is also a campground on site but we were staying at the motel. Very pleasant staff on check in and check out. Rooms include tv with cable, microwave and small fridge. There are 2 pools, a playground and a store on site. Wonderful for families!

I have probably been to about 100 campgrounds in my adult life and can honestly say this is the cleanest one I have ever been to. We stayed in the motel and our friends brought their camper.
