So, I think the Kalaloch lodge cabins need a fair review of the cabin accommodations. Read the history, and read what the other reviewers have said. We had a 5 star experience, but it is not a Four Seasons or Ritz Carlton. It is a cabin in the woods experience with a billion dollar view of the Pacific Ocean. Our cabin, number 12, did not have critters, the bed was comfortable, the shower clean, and matched our expectations based on everything we had read. The wood stove was great! The staff was friendly and they were nice. But remember, it is a cabin in the woods on the coast experience.

Don't go-Filthy room and critter visitation- READ THE REVIEWS!

If it was possible to give this lodge a zero, I would. My husband and I went on a 12 day trip around Olympic National Park in September 2021. We stayed in 6 different locations on our trip and Kalaloch Lodge was the most disappointing. We were there Sept. 23 and 24, 2021. We were so excited for the stay as we had a beautiful view from our deck. However that view did not make up for the disgusting filth we found in the room. We didn't notice the dirt when we walked in the room the afternoon we arrived. We went straight out to enjoy the sunset. The next day however when I went to shower, that's when I first noticed the mold in the shower. I started looking around more and that's when I noticed all the other nasty things. The room did not look like it had been vacuumed, filth on the baseboard heaters, dust bunnies, candy left on the floor (not mine), etc, etc. The pictures will speak for themselves. When we went down to the front desk, the man there was very nice and offered to comp us a night. They sent down the cleaning people but there was not much they could do. . We stayed one more night. That night I thought I heard something but didn't get up to investigate. I wish I had. The next morning when we were packing up, we found that our food which was in bags (remember they have a microwave and refrigerator in the rooms so food is expected to be in rooms) had been eaten. We had critters in our room. We were given another $100 to cover the cost of the food. Probably the most ironic thing about all of this was that they had a sign at the front stating how much cleaning they were doing and they kept sending emails to my husband about all the covid precautions they were following. I wish I had been more careful reading the reviews before we went. When we talked with the cleaning supervisor she said they were unable to get cleaning supplies like bleach. I told her this was not a short term lack of cleaning situation but was long term and according to the reviews this has been going on for years now and is not covid related. Needless to say, we will not be returning.

Cabin 2 on the bluff and the scenery was spectacular, beach access has been repaired and the beach was incredible. The cabin however was a problem. Keep in mind this is a 325/night accomodation, the black mold in the bathroom made it unusable, "kitchen" is a bit of a stretch, bird crap at the entry

*Bring Your Own Cleaning Supplies For years, I’ve wanted to stay at Kalaloch Lodge, but it was way too pricey for me. Finally, my sis who lives out-of-State was coming for a visit! I saved and was able to snag us a lower-priced room in the Seacrest House! I was excited and off we went. My excitement turned quickly to disappointment. The dining room was closed, even though they have a lovely outdoor deck. The menu for takeout was limited. We ordered snd took our food to the room, planning to eat on the balcony, listening to the ocean’s roar snd watching a lovely sunset. But there was no table on the balcony, not even a tiny one to set a drink on. No where to set our food. The rest of the room was old snd tired, beds included. In the bathroom, the floor didn’t appear to ever be cleaned into the corners. The baseboard and baseboard heat were coated in dust and dirt. The inside of the shower was filled with mold. For what I paid, especially, I was pretty disgusted. I will not ever do it again. Unless maybe I bring my own cleaning supplies? Oh yes - the ocean, as always, was beautiful and not a disappointment.

Once was enough for me.

Lodge was practicing Covid restrictions. The restaurant was barely open to order from a limited menu. No eating in, take out only. There were a few tables & chairs outside where a person could consume their food. We took our salads back to our room and discovered that there were 2 chairs on the balcony but no table. Beds were not very comfortable, pillows worse. But the worst part was the terrible mold in the shower & dirt on the bathroom floor. For almost $300 per night they need to do a lot better!
