Good location and view. But bathroom was never cleaned upon arrival. Cleaned it and moved on. Who wants to spend time awaiting for housekeeping to get back to you. Also lock to room door did not work well. Explained this in my review and was told that I would receive a discount that never materialized.
As always for national park lodges, you are paying a premium to stay in the park, not for the room. Location is great, view from the room was gorgeous. Bathroom had been updated, as had the room. But, room smelled musty, hair left in the bathtub from prior guest. I would come back, but as others have noted, price seems high for what it is.
