When we checked in and went to our room, the temperature in the room was about 105 degrees, outside temp was around 70 degrees. We stayed in a corner suite so the sun was shinning on those windows all day. They shut the air off 1 October, seems a little odd since each roon has its own unit. We were able to open the sliding glass door and the entry door to cool it down a bit, still was very hot for sleeping. The lodge was built the the late 60s and hasn't been updated since. The screen on the balcony was torn and wouldn't stay on its track, bathroom fixtures leaked and the tile was cracked and poorly patched. Very pricey for the condition, view was excellent, overall we were highly dissappointed with this visit!!! Take the tram and jetboat ride. Oh, I almost forgot, skip the restautant, view is nice, but since there was no AC, it was about 105 degrees in there also. The food was just so-so and again pricey for what you get, and I do mean for what you get, they were out of most items.
