Let's begin at check-in when the clerk asked if we would need underground parking for our car. After a few questions, we were told it's $9 a day to park underground, or outside for free behind the hotel or in adjacent lot. Really?? There is no wifi in the lobby, but rather a coin operated machine. $2 for 15 min. Am I in the 1990's? Wifi in the room was $10 a day. No thank you. The decor was very dated, lots of forest green and mauve. The balcony has no furniture on it and the carpet in the room was pretty old. Here's my favorite. The lodge is very long. We stayed in the furthest room on the Rundle side and while you can exit on that end of the building, you can't enter it! Seriously, you have to walk the length of the lodge to come in the entrance, to then walk the entire length back to get to your room. Perhaps you've heard of a door with a key reader? This place was oddly dated in the early 90's and its lack of technology and nickle and diming of the patron was kind of ridiculous. On the plus side, it is a block away from the main drag.
