We visited the Kalaloch restaurant in the early 1990's and I have great memories of that visit. We visited again in August of 2022. I found the restaurant to be in disrepair and in serious need of a refresh. We ordered the fish and chips and it was good, but not excellent. The service was very good. They are clearly understaffed, but trying. Pricey, for what it is.

Beautiful views but needs maintenance.

We were there with friends. The views were amazing. The 2 bedroom cabin was not very clean. No soap or shampoo in the attached containers in the shower. It is very overpriced and not many upgrades from our stay years ago. Will not be coming back.

Total disappointment.

Have made trip round the Olympic peninsula mainly to hike HOH rain forest, the trip was 4days/3nights. The reservatioins were made more than 2 months in advance, and date was determined by this being first available. Very disappointed in room and restaurant. Fisrt night was I will just say up the road by the ocean and room quality was 75% better at $100+ less. Night after being at Kalaloch room was $100 less and satisfactory. Each hotel had a + for locations. Will never return to Kalaloch Lodge.

Great views - ask if you will need to bring utensils and a blanket with you.

Great scenery - WOW and the sunset was amazing! Very friendly staff! The cabin we had was clean and we had a bundle of wood waiting for us. There could have been a few things that would have made our stay so much more comfortable. We had a small fridge, microwave, and a Keurig coffee maker. I was told I could cook - so I arrived with a menu of things to make... However, it is hard to do anything with a microwave - nothing to stir with. It would have made it so much nicer to have napkins, eating utensils and paper plates in the room. The blanket on the bed was a quilt with no lining - a down comforter would have felt plush - A Real blanket on the necessity on the list... The wood was great - however, there wasn't anything to start the fire with. A newspaper or a firestarter? I asked for a skillet to be brought to our room - but they fell through on bringing it to us. There ARE corkscrews available to be purchased at the lobby or in the mercantile. I was pleasantly surprised with the quality of the soap, shampoo, and conditioner. They had full size in a dispenser - not a sample size. I do like sample size to bring home - but this saves the environment too. Our had someone come in and empty the trash and give us new cups, but they didn't make the bed. Usually, I have had maid service make up the bed everywhere else I have stayed. This was a first. But I guess everyone is short-staffed these days due to covid. I will definitely go again, but next time, I will bring my own serving wear, cooking stuff, and a stove. Stuff that you wouldn't thing you would need when you go to a hotel. Be specific when you reserve your room. Ask if you will need to bring utensils with you.

Another world

As far as national park lodgings go, this place is a bit underrated. Consider that this lodge is sited on a bluff in an architectural manner that is respectful to its environmental context. While the furnishings are admittedly nothing to write home about, the fact that these cabins are actually quite comfortable feels almost incidental, as we were too utterly blown away by the spectacular setting to gauge something as mundane as the level of luxuriousness, which is rather impertinent here. One of the most magical evenings in our lifetimes was marked by a simple stroll on the adjacent beach at low tide during sunset. Then the dense fog rolled in, rendering the clam diggers as amorphous silhouettes against the darkening orange sky, and we felt as if we’ve been transported to a different world. Even the fact that the kitchen here serves very decent food that would be considered very decent anywhere else is just amazing to us, considering that this establishment is rather isolated geographically, and it certainly feels like you’re hundreds of miles from civilization, but in a good way. In case anyone would notice, this place does cover most of the basics (with a few glaring omissions): cleanliness, fair room temperature controls, noise levels under control (you’re in discrete cabins among national park guests who want to get an early start), reasonably comfortable beds, good toilet pressure and water temperature controls in the bathroom, sufficient supply of towels, acceptable lighting options in the rooms, just enough electrical outlets to charge your piles of modern junk, decent housekeeping, and helpful staff. You’re forced to commune with nature, or with your companions here, as mobile coverage and wifi are spotty. Be grateful that you’ve managed to snag a cabin here.
