Have stayed here several times and the stay is always wonderful. The rooms are clean and the staff is great. Walking distance to town. Always a great place to see the elk.

It was easy to find however old and room smelled of smoke. Shower squeaked the entire time. The entire AC unit is covered by the privacy curtain, so we opened the window and the traffic noise was very loud.

We stayed here, family of 5, for 2 nights in June. We wanted to be at the feet of the Rockies. Discovery Lodge was unique...bigger room with 2 queen beds and they charged us $20 per night extra for the air mattress. I had to ask for a hair dryer, which seemed strange. Breakfast was hit and miss as they put out 6 small OJs which ran out quickly. I had to ask the staff to put out more items for a few of the breakfast foods. However, I rate this highly as there were outdoor activities for the kids to engage in. AND, the location was ideal, just a few block from down town and access to all the regular stores. Having been in and around National parks for a few stays, this location was very nice. We recommend this lodge for those with kids and those who are interested in eco-awareness.

Elk roaming around. Doors that opened up on both sides of room if you have a balcony. My room (408) had a nice view of the Snow capped Rockies! For a one night stay it was good. Could be a little cleaner. Doorknob coming off bathroom door.

We stay here every year and it's always nice. This year snow was heavy and parking areas weren't cleared well in some areas.

The location was excellent. The log buildings were very cozy and the views from the lodge were beautiful. Watching the sunset from the hot tub was a very nice perk!
