Property could use some updates, but was adequate and convenient to park attractions. You’re definitely paying for the location and not necessarily the amenities.

Great location, great staff, and good sized room. Due to current conditions, there wasn't an opportunity for a lot of extra amenities. The lodge and the park service are definitely doing their best to make it a memorable visit.

There is a grab and go section with food for a microwave which is great if arriving late in Winter once the restaurant is closed. The fire was lit and lovely by the friendly front desk employee. Appreciated some of the explanation on how to conserve water and be environmentally friendly as well.
