A basecamp for outdoor enthusiasts. No frills and a cheap price. Not for those wanting to sit in their rooms. For those who are outside all day and out on the town at night. Hot showers and a bed with family like hospitality.

Although the web site declared that there was a shared hot tub, upon arrival I was told that they no longer had one due to vandalism. After skiing, being able to soothe and heal muscles is a necessity and I would have changed my reservation had I known this in advance.

Hi John - sorry about the hot tub...There is great rec center right down the street with two HUGE hot tubs, sauna, steam room, pool and lazy river.

No thrills, but clean and a convenient place to stay and ski at Winterpark. Can't beat the rates. Only downside is no WiFi .. be nice if they would invest in this for their guests. Close to slopes and restaurants.

The viking lodge is like taking a step back in time to when ski travel was all about getting the whole family out on the mountain and plain old having a good time. Loved it, and would definitely go back.

This lodge is awesome! I will 100% stay here when I come back. It is family owned and operated, and close to everything. I could hit 4 different restaurants and a brewery with a rock from the front desk. Not to mention that it is directly at the heart of the shuttle route - so it is SUPER easy to...

Don't expect a huge spacious place to hang out. But great takeoff point for other winter park activities like hitting up ski hill and visiting local bars and restaurants Friendly staff. Limited internet. Very cozy!

This place is pretty basic and they're quite forthcoming about that. It's near a lot of unique places to eat and get coffee. It's right next to the free shuttle that goes between Winter Park and Fraser. The owners can give you suggestions on places to go and things to see. I stayed for 2 nights and enjoyed myself. The...

Room was clean comfortable and warm. Exactly as described on website. Location was good. Buses run about every 30 minutes. Walking distance to several good restaurants, shops, and free ice skating across the street.

Great place to stay. The rooms are small and the entire place is old but charming. Close to buses and food spots. There is wifi, hot chocolate and a fireplace. Oh and ski lockers, those come in handy.

Very nice owners in an older, unique establishment. I wished the lobby provided a place to hang out but it was small and cluttered due to rehab work. Do not expect any amenities like coffee although there are places near buy where you can purchase for a very reasonable price.

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
