AAA Inspector Notes
This is one of the original hotels built by railroad magnate J.J. Hill to provide lodging for turn-of-the-century visitors from the East wishing to explore the park. It still serves that purpose. Train service makes scheduled stops here. Accommodations include converted cabooses, locomotives and cabins. This is a rustic experience for the hiker, fly-fisherman or casual visitor. Outdoor dining is offered. Did not meet all AAA rating requirements for viewports/peepholes in some guest rooms at time of last evaluation on 04/20/2017. Facilities, services, and décor characterize a mid-scale property.

Pros: Some historical feeling, staff friendly.
Cons: Room extremely small, basically you get in your room, you will be on your bed; you get off your bed, you will be outside your room, literally.The onsite restaurant charges a decent price for the meal, but the taste doesn't match. Isolated, not much todo

Pros: remote, historic, pretty, very good restaurant Note that there is no tvs and other modern things in the room (AC, coffeemakers, etc) and cell service in the area. It is historic and they try to make it look and feel like you are in the past
Cons:

Dream Lodge I will return...
Pros: The sense of being transported to another time and place, quite magical. Nonetheless, all the modern conveniences (well, no elevator to room with a view but friendly staff was quick to offer to carry my bags). The outdoor jacuzzi with magnificent mountain view and the immediate access to walking trails before breakfast in the morning. On site restaurant with local dishes like the elk I had with view of the great northern railroad. Lovely ambiance in the room and note - even the corridors as well as common rooms.
Cons: That I only booked one night! If I were to say anything critical, the wait staff in the restaurant was not on the superb level of the hotel reception.
