Actually staying at the lodge this night. The only good thing is the location: right in the middle of hiking. The room is overpriced $110 (that was an october special deal price) for a small two bed with no space to walk or keep luggage. One of the few things to do here without wasting more money is watch tv and even that is terrible. Only 6 channels that keep going in and out and one of them was porn. The bathroom is tiny with absolutely no counter/storage/room to function. The front desk girl was very rude and we got chased to the lodge door by a pack of raccoons. Very strict. Not allowed to bring our snacks into the room...we had to sneak them. Next time we're staying at the Best Western in Oglesby. We highly recommend staying somewhere else.
On the plus side, the hiking was great.
