I stayed at the Lodge the night before taking the day boat trip through Glacier Bay National Park. The Lodge provides convenient transport to and from the airport. The accommodation was nothing special and I do think the Lodge is overpriced for the quality and amenities on offer. Dinner and breakfast are eaten at the Dining Room, which has a nice selection but again is probably overpriced. The National Park Visitor Centre was located in the main building and was nice to look at after arriving on the first night. It is good for a one night stay to enjoy the National Park but there are some other (limited) accommodation options in Gustavus worth investigating.

After the short flight from Juneau, the Lodge bus met us at the airport. We were delighted with the lodge and the charming rooms! There are about 50 rooms, and some of the other guests were with small tours; we were independent. Food in the dining room was okay, but we did not have high expectations. We had to be down at the dock at 7 am for the day-long tour, and it was worth every minute! We saw Johns Hopkins glacier from 1/4 mile away, calving off pieces of ice. We saw 8 bears in the day, including 2 different families, and a male catching and eating salmon. Mountain goats, seals floating downstream on ice floes, the sound of the ice calving. Also there was a Tlingit clan house, and a Tlingit man teaching as docent. That closes at 8 pm, and we only got to talk to him for a short while. I wish we'd had longer.

Before making reservations, some of the negative reviews gave me pause. I have stayed in many national park lodges and decided to go with this one also as I believe that it gives a different experience from staying outside a park. Yes, it is rustic-goes with the territory. The rooms have been updated and were clean , comfortable, quiet and spread throughout a spruce forest. We did not have one bad interaction with an employee. they were all friendly, accommodating and happy to help out with whatever your need was. The whole operation runs smoothly. With day hikes, excursions to experience and rangers to learn from, we were sad to leave. With the length of time spent there, we sampled quite a few menu items and found them all tasty and well prepared. Even requested an item not on the menu and it was no problem.

It is hard to express the wonderful culture the Joe the GM has created. I made a booking error and did not have a reservation for the days I thought when I arrived. The lodge was completely full and it is the only hotel in Gustavus (not to mention that I had no cell or internet service). Joe called personal friends until he found a place for my family that night and then personally drove us there. The next day on the boat tour (a must!) and at the restaurant his employees showed the same level of commitment and service. Over the next few days we ran into several of them throughout the park and the were just as helpful and friendly even when they were off the clock. My family travels constantly and this is the best customer service experience we have ever had!
