We've contacted quite a few 'lodges' that seem like a good option.

Anyone else have any suggestions?

Thanks very much in advance

I'd recommend a Motel. There are many and lots have a gym and an indoor or outdoor pool, jacuzzi maybe.
You can usually negotiate a good rate for extended stays.
Spent nights in a few of them around and about and they are pretty comfy.
Some of them even have a cafe/restaurant for breakfast/lunch/dinner and you can have your car right outside your door.
