We spent one night here recently. It was a good value, even though the bathroom was a little quirky. However, it was clean, the bed was comfortable, it was quiet and the staff were friendly. About the only complaint I would have had, and this may not be a problem for others -- our room was close to the office... More

Service is good, breakfast is ok (enough for the morning) and the rooms are clean! The good part is the location (you can walk to nevada, to the restaurants around and, most important, to the slopes). The best part is the price!!! I booked online for 7 days and paid something like 45 bucks per night during ski season (end... More

For the price we paid, I was very happy with the room we got (33$). It is very clean, bed is comfortable, bathroom is equipped for disabled people. The only negative point is the absence of heater in the bathroom (it was snowing when we were there ). Breakfast is included in the price, it is served in the lobby... More

Its my third time staying here. I was provided with a large clean room, WiFi is awesome even across the street. The new owners are really making a difference here, the breakfast is simple, but hey I only paid 23.00 for a nice room. I had money left over to spend 15.00 for a breakfast at IHOP. If you want...

The Blue Jay Lodge was very reasonably priced and we weren't expecting very much but were very pleasantly surprised. The room was clean with good sized bathroom with a bonus of a microwave. It's a little walk to the ski lift but fine. Breakfast was just donuts and coffee but that's fine. Would stay again.

We came in and the owners had a smile on there face. Had a great sense of humour and were able to accommodate our request even though it did require changing the room. The room is really clean for a motel. Bathroom was spotless! Beds were decently comfortable (I like them soft). One suggestion is to bring ear plugs, the... More

My boyfriend and I called ahead because we had such a great experience last yr that we wanted to stay in the same style room this yr. However upon checking in we were told that the people staying before us didn't want to check out so we'd have to have a different room. It would not have been a problem... More

This is a great value for the money if you keep in mind that it is a TWO STAR motel and have realistic expections. We recently stayed at a two star motel (right down the street) that made the Blue Jay Lodge look like the Marriot. Pros: Large clean rooms/ Clean bathroom Good room service Great location (walking distance to... More
