visited 1 night for the Divide Music Festival and Viking Lodge was perfect. Room was rustic, very clean and cozy. You can tell they had to be creative with use of space to keep the cost low - thank you! Location was awesome, walked to a fabulous breakfast and enjoyed the art fair going on that weekend. We had a...

We stayed 2 nights to celebrate the 4th of July. Our room was very comfortable, the owners are great. The coffee was made early for us. This hotel is a true Colorado Lodge from years ago. The price was more then reasonable and the location is wonderful.

Everything is Winter Park has been torn down and built up anew. This lodge is one the oldest and maybe the only old time buildings in the area. The rooms are small but unique. Great value in the heart of the city.

We liked the atmosphere and room, our style is laid back, comfortable and unpretentious. We felt at home. The location is perfect along the main street since everything is walking distance. We'll be back for sure.

This lodge had some character by the wood. The dark color was depressing. No curtains to close. A perfect place perhaps in winter but not in summer. There was A hottub. Outside en closed. The lodge needs some maintenance. The bed was good.

You've read others' reviews. You can go to the website and read the owner's comments as well. That pretty much covers it. This is a ski lodge for people who just want to ski and have a clean place to sleep. We never saw anyone is the office, our key was there for us and we returned it the same...

Had a lovely one night stay in early June. This is a great place to enjoy the night life of Winter Park. I was there in the summer but I'm sure it would be awesome for ski season too. Very charming and great service.

If you are just looking for some place to crash on a bed, that is what you need! The bed was ok, the shower was ok, the cleanliness was also ok. The only thing I would change is that they have only a few energy plugs on the room...

Hello Nathan - thank you for reviewing your stay at The Viking Lodge. We are glad you enjoyed your stay. We are trying to come up with cost effective solutions for the walls. Maybe we will start handing out earplugs, ha! Scott

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
You get what you pay for… Located in downtown Winter Park, the Viking Lodge and Ski Shop is an icon in Winter Park. Since 1953 we have been providing affordable lodging to guests who just want to ski and have a great time. At The Viking Lodge you get what you pay for. The carpets are old, the walls are thin, and the TV’s are not flat screen. But we won’t break your budget; we offer cheap accommodations in an old ski lodge at a great location in downtown Winter Park. We have 21 rooms; from VERY small to apartments. All rooms have private baths and color televisions; box style televisions, yes they are old TV’s, but you should be outside not sitting in your room watching TV. Pool, gym, ice sculptures, room service, robes, bell boys, 24 hour front desk, spa – this is a list of stuff we don’t have. We do have clean rooms, a great downtown location, hot tub, game room, friendly staff and the best dirt parking lot in Winter Park. We don’t do daily maid service or mints on pillows, but if you ask we will clean your room and find a mint somewhere. If you’d rather be surfing the web than skiing, riding, biking, hiking, reading, chatting with friends or meeting new ones, you’ll be pleased to know that we have Wi-Fi in the lobby. I suppose some have to work anyway. You can make use of our luggage room before check-in and after check-out. Our reception is not open all day (heck we would rather be outside skiing, riding, biking or hiking too) but no fear, we will leave directions for check-in; usually at the Ski Shop or T-shirt shop. If you will be arriving after hours (like 6PM) please call. Coming soon The Viking Lodge is a work in progress; despite all attempts to the contrary we are becoming more impressive on a daily basis. Some rooms even have tile in the bathrooms, new sinks and fancy bedspreads and curtains. ... more   less
