Stay away from this lodge. It is dingy, disgusting, extremely outdated and is 50 yards from a train track with a train passing every 30 minutes except between 2 am and 5 am when it only seemed to come every hour. There is no air conditioning and no fans so you have to leave your windows open to keep from boiling. But with the train going by and blasting its horn about 8 times, there is no way to get any sleep. We ended up only staying here one night and then requested to be moved to another resort. The only thing available through Interval International was in Breckenridge. We moved and ended up far happier. Breckenridge is extremely clean, safe and has so many great things to do, places to eat and shops.
The only good thing about the Lions Gate is that you can walk to all the restaurants and shops in Winter Park. Unless you bring an industrial set of ear plugs - stay away.
