We were a little startled at first because we're from the south and there were no fans in the rooms, even in mid-July when it was 80 degrees outside! But we quickly realized that fans would probably not be practical for use only one month of the year and the nights were cool so we got over it. They walls are very thin, but we had pretty good neighbors when we were there so it wasn't really an issue. We had a room with a private bath and I think it was well worth the extra cost. The cafe was lovely and had a pretty great variety, with much better hours and prices than the dining room. We ended up not eating in the dining room at all and opting for pizza/pasta in the Visitor's Center! You really can't beat the view, the beds were comfy, and the weather was perfect for hiking. I would definitely stay here again.
