Room was basic but nice. Clean. Nothing extraordinaire but suits the purpose for staying one night. No breakfast included. I thought it was pricey for what it was. Did find a great restaurant for breakfast in town.

My two brothers and I stayed in one of the condos for three nights. Condo open floor plan was disappointing. One private bedroom, open loft with two twin beds, sofa bed in living room. Lacking in privacy. Whenever one person got up in the morning everyone had to. One small out of date tube tv. Torn patio door screen. Cheap...

Reception staff could have been considerably more friendly. Room comfortable. Restaurant a little overpriced. No breakfast option in restaurant. Location to the town, lake and Rocky mountain national park is good.

A place that has some good grub to eat......check. 3. a place you feel at home and comfortable at.....check again. Rapids Lodge is simple, but...

Stayed in the historic unit. Neat old place but could use a new mattress. Really squeaky and not very comfortable. River view a must. Decent value for the price. Restaurant is a bit pricey for Grand Lake but worth it for that special evening or even lunch. Location is great since you can walk to downtown and all the shops...

We stayed in the cabin facing the River RV-1, it was very nice and the river scenery is beautiful. I ended up leaving my laptop there by accident. Carol called me, told me they found it and is shipping it to me - great customer service! We will stay there again !

2 couples in #6 which faced the river with a full balcony. Nice kitchen, not enough glassware. No paper towels provided, although this was disclosed in the reservation, it would have been nice to have it provided. Toilet seat and tile in bathroom were broken; not sure why the maid didn't report this. Beds ok. Lock a little sticky on...

We returned to The Rapids for dinner by the rushing river 18 years after our first romantic dinner there. We decided to stay at the Rapids Lodge for convenience and to enjoy the view of the river. We enjoyed our stay and found the cost reasonable, however the windows were sealed shut and there was no A/C so it got...
