Toiletries were amazing! There were ear plugs provided in the room due to the lodge being right beside the train tracks with frequent trains which was a nice touch.

The bathroom walls were covered in pee as well as the toilet base. The soap and hand cream were used. The shower had no water pressure to rinse the shampoo out. The whole bathroom was atrocious. There was no handicap parking for me. The second night we came back and there was no parking. The clerk said he had used all his tricks and started being really rude to my wife. When she called him out on his rudeness he stopped. He told us we had to park across the road down a small side street. There is no way I was going to do that. I would not be able to bring my luggage across the main road. Next he said to the park in the snow bank on a side angle. The drivers side of my truck was raised around two feet in the air. To the side of my truck around 4 feet away was the fire hydrant. My wife asked about getting towed or ticketed and she was told that they own the property so it was ok. We know it is not. When she asked about who is going to pay any tickets if we receive one, there was no comment. The clerk told us that the more expensive hotel next door has suites for 4-10 people. They sometimes bring more than the allotted 1 vehicle parking they are entitled to. So they then come over to the sister hotel and take up all the spots leaving nine for the guests at Base Camp lodge. I convinced my wife that this was the nest he is going to offer us. We went to leave the next morning, and my wife stopped to talk to the morning clerk. The manager brushed her off and said to emailher

We would not stay here again. We ended up forgoing our paid stay and went elsewhere. I would recommend the other facilities, as this one is not worth the price.

Hotel was really nice. No breakfast, but Rocky Mountain Bagel & Georgetown Inn serve breakfast, which were a 1 minute walk. No pool. No hot tub. Parking was extremely tight for anything larger than a small car or SUV. If you have anything larger do not stay here.
