We stay at Alta Crystal once or twice a year when we spend a weekend at Crystal Mountain to ski. Our kids are 3 and 5, and the place is great for families like ours with small kids. I write this review with some reluctance knowing it could just increase the score for this place, thus making it harder for... More

Although I'd like to write a great review, we actually did not get to enjoy the hotel at all. See we booked our room probably a month or two prior and did not expect our 9month old to be in the hospital. My husband called a day before our expected arrival and said we could not come due to an... More

We are very sorry this guest's baby went to the hospital and she couldn't come as planned. We know her brother-in-law came the same weekend, had a great stay and in fact, stayed with us a second time this past weekend. Last-minute cancellations are hard to fill since most last-minute people are looking for one night at the lowest possible... More

Our family has stayed at Alta Crystal Resort for the past three holidays--right after Christmas through the New Year. (We also stay a few times during the ski season.) Vivian and Steven are such warm and accommodating hosts. Each night they organize an activity that is appropriate for all ages. We've enjoyed bingo games, movie nights, craft and cookie decorating...

My wife and I spent the weekend in the Honeymoon Cabin. The log cabin was relatively new and very clean with comfortable furnishing and a nice layout . The plush queen bed was up in the loft, so not great if you have a problem with stairs at night, but a nice place to nest otherwise. Has a small kitchen... More

Spent a night here in January 2014 after a day at Crystal Mountain with my wife and 3-year old daughter. It was our first visit to Alta Crystal. The rooms were very clean and updated. We had fun playing in the pool while it was ~20 degrees outside. It sure made getting out of the pool a challenge because of... More

I am the angry woman the co-owner at Alta Crystal refers in her response by samoil99 review. My bed was on the upper floor and I was the most affected by the smoke. The reason we didn't report the issue immediately was that the first evening we were there this issue didn't exist probably because there were no guests in... More

Everything was good except that we chocked every night from the smoke that was coming from the lower unit's fireplace. I dreaded going back to my unit after a day of skiing in fresh air. Don't stay in the upper unit if you don't like to breathe smoke every night. My daughter developed a cough and they left for home... More

Dear Guest: I am always sorry when a guest has a complaint as our goal is for everyone to have a wonderful vacation here. I am also very sorry that the ski conditions were not as you had hoped, and I really wish we could control Mother Nature. Our rooms have side-by-side chimneys for the upper and lower units, and...

We wanted a quaint gettaway in the Mt. Rainier area and Alta Crystal Resort is just that. We stayed in the Honeymoon Cabin to celebrate my 60th birthday. Beautiful cabin, cozy, tv with good connection, plus wifi. Be aware no cell service, but with wifi you can still communicate if need be. We brought the majority of our food as... More
