The Lodge at Plamer Gulch is an ok place but nothing fancy here. You can tell the place caters more toward the campers (Plamer Gulch is also a KOA campground), but if I wanted to camp I would not have picked the "Lodge". The "Lodge" seemed to be a manufactured type of structure with wood siding making it 'appear' to be a wood structure. The main picture you see everywhere (with the huge bear) is probably the only thing going for it. It is also kinda out of the way if you are more into sight seeing or touring the neat little towns in the area. Make sure you have your own internet unless perhaps the lady at the front desk finally figured out how to use their wi-fi. We called the desk and even went there face to face but she just gave us a piece of paper on how to use the wi-fi, which was pretty worthless. You could tell she had no idea how it worked and didn't seem very interested in finding out. The room was clean and ok, but we were only there to sleep since (not being campers) there is nothing else to do at the "Lodge". I am torn between the poor rating and average rating --- so I will go with poor and 1/2, as there were many other places to stay in the area that seemed to have been a better pick.....but you just don't know until you get there.
