We stayed at Kalaloch Lodge October 29 2013. Our check-in and reservation experience was easy and the staff was friendly and efficient.
As we were checking in later in the evening we made our way directly to the dining room. I had read other reviews that were not great about the food but there are NO other options in the area. We were both surprised that our dinners were delicious!!! I had the Mushroom Strudel (at the suggestion of our server) and my husband thoroughly enjoyed his Link Cod--both were wonderful and the service was really good. The only disappointment was the atmosphere--cute dining room with rustic charm but really, really bright multiple recessed cans on a dark night created an unwelcoming cold atmosphere--if they just turn down the lights and added some candlelight, it would completely change the dining experience.
Our room (room 8) was adequate--carpet was not very clean but the bed was clean and inviting.
The room feels very old school lodge, which is exactly what it is. The bathroom had been updated and was very clean. Our only complaint was that with the tiny vanity there was nowhere but the floor for a toiletries case--adding wall mounted shelf under the window or a small bench or chair would make a huge difference.
It was wonderful sleeping with the windows open listening to the surf on the beach and waking to a gorgeous view. Our breakfast also proved to be delicious and our server Andrea was very friendly and great to chat with.
