I booked a private room for two nights and was given the key and escorted to room #8 located on the 1st floor which was nicer than I thought. On Saturday when I returned from a very strenuous hike, I was told by Reyna the receptionist that she had moved my belongings to another room #3 on the second floor because they had made a mistake. I was surprised that our property which consisted of iPads and iPods were moved along with our personal belongings without our prior consent or permission. I was surprised since Reyna was the one who checked us in on Friday and never mentioned a room change during our stay. I voiced my concern of the move without my consent. It fell on deaf ears. I am an avid hiker and will not recommend the Bascom lodge at all. The bathrooms and showers on the second floor are in need of upgrading especially when the water temperature cannot be controlled once your in the shower. Best to stay in one of the many accommodations located in the towns below the summit.
