The lodge has pros and cons. Pros: it's cheap, there are bathrooms attached to the rooms, it has an amazing view of the mountains. Cons: the layout is quite odd and there is no real communal area even though there is so much space for it, and the kitchen. The kitchen is FILTHY. We stayed for three days and the same pieces of food and dirt were in the same place the whole time, so the floor obviously didn't get cleaned.There is old food spattered all over the walls, heaters, microwaves...very very dirty. Also, the kitchen is small. Our room didn't get cleaned the whole time we were there and there was scummy stuff all around the taps. But because it was so convenient to have our own bathroom I didn't really mind. So if you can handle the kitchen it's a good deal.
