The room is very expensive when compared to other B&B's in the area, granted, they have no view. The food is terrible. The menu is very limited and they run out of many items on the menu leaving even fewer choices. The restaurant is run by Aramark and the quality, service and selection is among the worst I've ever seen.
While on this trip, we did eat at the Gustavus Inn because we were tired of bad food at the Lodge. The dinner at Gustavus Inn was fabulous. You need reservations and its $50 per person, but good quality, fabulous preparation, and excellent service ... Just the opposite of the food at the Lodge.
The location is beautiful with most rooms having a view of Bartlett Cove. The National Park staff was also wonderful. There are guided hikes and a great 8-hour boat trip into Glacier Bay. We saw moose, brown bears, bald eagles, porcupines and glaciers.
