After leaving the miserable Quinalt Lodge this was our next day booking. Remember, Aramark Co. has the exclusive rights to three properties within the Fed Nat Park of Olympia and they are, in my opinion, gouging the public and poorly managing these properties till their 10 year lease expires in a few years.
It is near the end of the season and the staff has only 1 more month to go. You will not believe the attitude that welcomers you from the crabby old lady that checks you in to the apathetic teen that provides the free bfast. The management cannot motivate them and only hope they will not quit till closing day.
I paid $ 191/n for a miserable cabin crammed among 20 others. Clean and marginally adequate- how can they justify the price ?- a monopoly on a location walking distance from many incredible hikes. The Hot Springs are a few small concrete swimming pools filled with warmish, smelly water. Not the real deal- disappointing to me.
Drive to the parking area, hike, then sleep elsewhere.More
