The Alta Lodge is popular with many guests returning annually. The staff is very helpful and nice and the food at dinner was quite good. That said, for the price point, we were highly disappointed. When you arrive, you enter down a stairway that looks like a beat-up Irish pub entrance in Boston. Once down the stairs, you see the dining room on the left with chairs from a bad wedding reception and with velvet booths. You expect something like the Yellowstone Lodge - and you get a small, cramped room with a tiny bathroom and low quality furniture, chairs etc. The view of the mountains from the large window in the room was beautiful. Yet, the room almost felt like a Youth Hostel from my backpacking days in Europe. We selected the Alta Lodge given the reviews on Trip Advisor. We just want to give you a balanced view so you have a realistic expectation when you arrive. Good luck.
