Winter Park's Best Hotel Deals

Located in downtown Winter Park, The Viking Lodge and Ski Shop is an icon in Winter Park. Since 1953, we have been providing Winter Park's best hotel deals 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.  However, 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're telling you, it's a great deal!

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.

We keep our prices reasonable and promise you a clean, comfortable, warm room with a private bath and cable TV, which is exactly why you should be booking right now!

“Perfect for hard core skiers or boarders who have one thing on the brain – powder. Friendly staff, best deals around, and great location. Walk to the many bars and restaurants on the Winter Park ‘strip.’ Free bus to Winter Park Resort stops literally right out the back door. There is also a hot tub to have a soak after a long day on the slopes. The Viking doesn’t have large rooms or five star amenities, but its quaintness and charm wins out in the end.”

“Love the cute old rooms of varying size and shape. The rooms with lofts! The rec room, hot tub, 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…”
