Best Western Premier The Lodge on Lake Detroit offers the latest hotel style and amenities in the Detroit Lakes, Minnesota area. Located on the shore of pristine Big Detroit Lake, Detroit Lakes’ newest Minnesota lake resort features dramatic sunsets and is nestled in a lovely tree-filled setting with eco-friendly rain gardens, guaranteed to enhance your stay.
Your day spa, Lake Detroit style, is waiting at our Detroit Lakes resort hotel. We believe you should be pampered on vacation, and feature The Spa Within, the only day spa in Detroit Lakes. Choose from our menu of delectable treatments to have you looking and feeling your best.
All rooms are lakefront with patio or private balcony. Renewal Spa Suites feature a whirlpool and fireplace, ideal for a little romance. Check out a complimentary kayak or paddle boat for water recreation, with boat slips and a private beach steps away. Outside fire pits are the perfect place for making s’mores and a favorite gathering spot for friends and families.
Enjoy music, fun, good food and drinks at The Lodge. We regularly host live music in our lakefront, fireside lobby, as well as wine tastings, special retreats and murder mystery events! The region is a favorite for destination weddings, and we welcome many business travelers and meetings to our Detroit Lakes hotel, too. Employees of BTD, Lakeshirts, Snappy and the healthcare sites, including St. Mary’s Hospital, Sanford Health and Essentia Health are all regulars here.
Many guests prefer to relax on our private sandy beach, or with outdoor activities like biking, snowmobiling, fishing and bird watching. The Tamarac National Wildlife Refuge is a must-see for nature lovers.
WE Fest, a country music festival, is a local favorite, as are the annual Street Faire Festival, Water Carnival and Beardsley Half Marathon that all take place nearby.
