The Kandahar Lodge was good. The room was cozy. It’s definitely older, but it’s well kept up. The continental breakfast was well stocked. Friendly staff. Easy check in/out process. There are very pretty views from the property.

We loved our stay at Kandahar Lodge! Very clean rooms, we loved that it was very spacious. Good breakfast. I want to mention that this is a ski resort and it is in the mountains. about 10-15 minutes drive to the city center.
