We love the Lodge. Just returned from our third visit this year, and I look forward to returning next year.
This time we got to stay in the Main Lodge for the first time (previously we've stayed in the Fireplace Rooms and the Boathouse) and it was a nice change of pace. Our room, a lake facing queen was lovely with a very nice bathroom with clawfoot tub and shower. Note the main lodge rooms DO NOT have TV, while the Fireplace rooms DO. All rooms seem to have comfortable beds, nice sheets, and are quite clean (major clean-o-phobe here!) No phones and no room service.... it wouldn't take much to make this a 3-4 star property with those types of things, but it isn't so don't expect that kind of stuff. No spa either.
This really is the quintessential National Park Lodge (although it's actually not in the National Park it IS publicly owned by the National Forest Service and run just like a NPS lodge by a concessioner, Aramark, who also runs the Olympic National Park facilities and and they do a good job here). The Lodge feels very well maintained and they (Aramark) are always updating it while maintaining its historic character...
The entire lodge now has free WiFi and it worked great. Food in the dining room was fine but I still recommend the Salmon House up the road a mile for fantastic, lower cost dining. We're from Seattle and know what good Salmon tastes like - the Salmon House has some of the very best!!!
The extra warm indoor pool was wonderful as ever, and even though it rained we got in some fantastic hikes amongst the giant ancient trees.
Thanks for another wonderful stay Lake Quinault staff!
