My wife and I really enjoyed staying here. The room was small, but it was clean and charming. It had a great location, very close to shops, restaurants, and bars. It was also on the bus route to the ski resort! Also had ski lockers for every room so that you had a place to store them at night. The...

This place is pretty great. I had a nice and cozy feeling. Almost like I was staying at my Grandma's house, expect there was a bathroom connected to the room. They also offer military discounts so that was nice. Would definitely consider staying again.

Nice "old school" ski lodge. Rooms are clean with refrigerators. Lockers for skis and snowboards. Beverages served in lobby, ski shop and retail shop on property. Copper Creek Square across street with multiple restaurants within walking distance

The Viking Lodge is a great place to stay. Its family owned and operated. The owners are extremely nice and will accommodate any of your needs. The whole place has a cozy, mountain get away feel, with spacious rooms and cute lofts in some! It is extremely clean and well-kept. I would recommend the Viking to anyone!

The viking is a great place to stay if you are looking for a nice get away to the mountains. I stayed for the weekend with several friends and they directed us to local hikes and other fun activities. We ended up renting bikes and taking the trail across the street to the resort for the day. The lodge itself...

Had an awesome time at the Viking lodge. We loved the room which had plenty of room and a cool loft! It's located right in the middle of winter park and is walking distance to everything you may want to do.

Love the cute old rooms of varying size and shape. The rooms with lofts! The rec room, hottub, sauna, shower by the sauna, the "lobby" with coffee and hot chocolate. The ski rentals and t shirt store. Plus it's right at the heart of the town. Great food 100 feet away. Free concerts in the park 2 blocks away.

We stayed here and loved thee fact that everything was so close. The owner was friendly and approachable when we asked to stay another night. The room was clean and comfortable. No frills though, but when all you do is sleep there then goout for the day, that's all you need. Thanks Scott!

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
