We love staying at the lodge when we go to Mt Hood. Spring mid-week was perfect condition for our two kids to get their first skiing experiences. We got a great deal on lift tickets by staying at the lodge, too.
The rooms can be a bit small and are designed with an older sensibility in mind. They are rustic but very comfortable. The staff at the lodge were helpful and friendly. We really loved the 2 St. Bernard dogs that visit behind the front desk most days.
The lodge has several places to eat, including the "day lodge" as well as the hotel. Unless you pack a cooler before you head up, the lodge establishments are your main options. The Cascade Room is supposed to be their upscale dining options but the prices far outweigh the freshness and quality of the food. Go for the more reasonably priced day lodge fare or the bar food, which is good and MUCH less expensive. They have a nice bar area with gorgeous views of the top of Mt Hood. We had a sunny, clear day and the views of Mt Jefferson were phenominal. There are 2 balcony levels where you can just sit and relax by the giant fireplace. We had a great time exploring all the passages and hallways.
The pool and hot tub are such a great experience after a day of skiing. I don't think I could have skiied on day 2 without the incentive of some time in the hot tub after. The pool and hot tub get a lot of use from kids at the lodge, so I think they keep the hot tub temperature down for that reason, but it is still great and relaxing on sore muscles at the end of the day.
