When we arrived at the hotel we were advised that dinner reservations were required and that we should check on availability immediately. Since we were willing to be seated right away, we filled a cancelled reservation. The dining room was lovely-with close up views of the mountains and woods. Two of us shared 1) a 3 course meal of steak, Caesar salad, and cobbler; and 2) lamb shank, risotto and broccoli rabe. Everything was delicious except for the "roasted potatoes" that seemed to be baked potatoes sliced in four parts. The lamb shank and risotto were especially wonderful. Dinner for two with one glass of wine, one tea and tip was $87, which didn't seem too bad for a national park meal.
Because we ate before going to our room, it was dark when we moved in. Despite the warnings and waivers about bear activity, there was very poor lighting in the parking lot and on walkways. We had some difficulty determining where to enter the middle building and were surprised to find that the entry was on the second floor, although our room was on the first floor. This wasn't a problem for us, but I think that it could be for some folks since there was no elevator. When we arrived in the room, we were dismayed by the condition/cleanliness, but felt that we had no option at 9:30 since we had been told that the lodge was full. The next morning I spoke to a manager who reduced the price by 75%.
The buildings were in a lovely location, and I would stay there again, despite the problems we encountered.
