Mountain Lodge good but can be improved
Posted Aug 28, 2015 on Hotels
The Mountain Lodge has an outstanding appearance from the outside. It has a log cabin feel with excellent lighting. The outdoor pool and hot tub are also a plus in addition to the lounges that surround the pool area. The hotel staff were extremely helpful with showing us how to use the gondolas and where the various hiking trail heads were located; they even gave us an outstanding map. The main drawbacks of the hotel are the small size of the room and the lack of sound deadening between rooms. At check-in, the person tried to upgrade us to a larger room (for $60 more a night); however, since we were already paying over $200 a night, we declined to upgrade. Anyway, the room we were in was next to a utility room with a loud hot water heater that cycled on and off all night. Also, the walls were so "thin" that we could hear the conversations of the people next to us. To top it off, there were two rooms near us with barking dogs; one two doors down and one right across the hall. We found out later that they put the people with pets on the first floor; therefore, I suggest that you request a room off of the first floor if you don't want to hear pet noises. All-in-all the stay was fine but the amount of noise in the room was unacceptable.
