Stayed for two nights mid Feb. Had a standard room and paid apx $90 per night. Room was clean and comfortable. The room heater was incredibly noisy, but did keep the room warm. The bathroom had seen better days, and I had to ask the front desk for instructions on how to get the shower to work.... apparently, my room was known to have a 'tricky' shower, but the front desk didn't have the sense to warn me about it on checkin.
The staff at the front desk didn't appear too interested in the guests, and the one that I dealt with on checkin didn't seem to know much about the lodge. Which was a little un-nerving.
There was a free 'continental' breakfast on the first weekday morning, which consisted of two cereals, cheap bread and mini-muffins and pre-packaged fruit cups all served on disposable plastic plates. Although free they could do much better. At the the weekend the free 'continental' breakfast was not provided, instead, breakfast was $10.95 (plus $2 for orange juice) in the adjoining restaurant. There was a much better range, but quality was not good.
As other's pointed out, there is no cell phone access at the lodge, but that's not the lodge's fault. I did pay for the wifi ($10) and had no problems with it. It was usable in the checkin area and my room.
Given the close proximity to the park entrance, I thought that the lodge's room rates were quite reasonable
