It was okay, I slept well and the breakfast was very good, the fact that the trails start right behind the lodge is good too! But, for this price, I could easily slept in Gorham or Glenn in a bigger hôtel room with two double beds, a private bathroom and a TV that I would not have had to share...

I have stayed at Joe Dodge Lodge in the summers of 1996 (twice), 2001, and now 2014 before and after backpacking in the White Mountains of New Hamphsire. They cater to guests with a sense of community of all those who love and respect the wilderness and nature. As it has been a step toward the further challenge of hiking...

Way overpriced for the accommodations provided. Expensive hotel prices, for hostel quality. The shared bathroom / shower areas are overcrowded and untidy. The bedrooms are tiny without closets or dressers. Just a few hooks on the wall. The rooms are very stuffy as there is no air ventilation system. The temperature outside was actually quite cool, but our room was...

Don't think of this as a hotel but as an alpine hostel. Most of the rooms have bunk beds, there are shared bathrooms and showers and most guest tend to be early birds. Space is sold by the bed not the room but it is possible, and common, to buy all the beds in a room so you have a...

This Lodge is so well kept up that it seems almost brand new. Staff friendly and extremely competent. The Library is sunny and a great place for some quiet time, with comfortable chairs and sofas. The bathrooms are shared, but this wasn't a problem, as we never had to wait long for access to the showers. We had a 4-bunk...

The rooms are very comfortable and I didn't find the noise from other rooms to be nearly as big a problem as other reviewers have. My gripe is with the food. The needs and tastes of hikers do not change with elevation. AMC-employed college students serve 5-star meals at 5000' feet in the huts. Why is the food so much...

I have been staying at Joe Dodge lodge for the past 10 years. It is located at the base of Pinkham Notch just 4.1 miles (depending on the trail) to the top of Mt. Washington. Love the place, just do not like many of the inconsiderate guests. As many of the other reviewers have stated the walls are paper thin...

I love this place for what it is: a clean place to rest your head in a great location with fantastic food. A no frills no glitz atmosphere with a first class staff willing to help, treat you kindly and answer any questions that you may have. It sits at the base of natures playground so you can roll out...

I have been an AMC member for a long time. I hadn't been up to the Whites since before I had kids, and decided it was time to get up there again. My husband couldn't join us (work!) so I decided to head up with the kids. We spent 3 nights/4 days in August, 2013. Thanks to amazing adventures available...

I stayed here on new years eve to have an old fashioned lodge experience and be close to all the winter activities in the Pinkham Notch area. The rooms are basic, just as you would expect an AMC lodge to be, but they were warm, clean and had all kinds of shelves and hooks that were so convenient when you...
