We had a ski vacation in Squaw Valley during a period when there was virtually no snow, so overall we were disappointed with the trip so you might want to read this review in that light. When we arrived at the Plumpjack with our two families and large entourage of children we were engaged almost immediately in a spat with... More

Where to begin? I have been disappointed time after time with PlumpJack, and would not recommend this hotel to anyone. While the location is nice, the staff treated us with less-than-ideal respect when we stayed last winter. No one offered to help us with our bags/luggage when we checked in, then they surprised us with all kinds of additional fees... More

I stayed at this establishment for a wedding in May, which was perfect as we were the only group of people staying here (Off season). This beautiful hotel offers spacious rooms and a variety of amenities. The bathrooms were also very modern and spacious, offering a romantic edge to our room. Beds were comfortable as well as pillows. The wedding... More

Stayed over New Years a last minute reservation but they seemed to have plenty of rooms, maybe because the attention to detail and cleanliness is just not there. Broken blinds stains on the hallway carpet, hair in the shower. I did note this at checkout someone attempted to follow up but dropped the ball never heard from them them to... More

The inn has great access to lifts, but feels more like a motel that's been spruced up as opposed to a nice inn. Quite a bit of ambient noise in the rooms from hallways etc. I think you're basically paying for location.

This is a wonderful place to stay with a family. We were 11 total spread out in 5 rooms over Christmas. I changed our room numbers and dates multiple times and the manager was so accommodating. There are a lot of young kids staying here with their parents for the holidays. The staff is very friendly and super helpful. Ski... More

Just returned from a three night stay at the Inn. Family wedding was on the grounds and reception at the PlumpJack Conference Center. The hotel is steps away from skiing at Squaw. Shopping, restaurants, and outdoor activities are located across the street from PlumpJack. The staff was courteous and friendly. The breakfast bar is a highlight each morning and the... More

Overall a good hotel. Be warned that you will have to use your windows and fan to cool down the room as there is no air conditioning. They've done a great job updating the facility and the rooms are modern and comfortable. I had a bit of trouble with electrical, it kept shorting out in the bathroom. Included breakfast was... More

The Mrs. and I wanted to get away over labor day. Squaw Valley had a wine walk, so we stayed a night at the PlumpJack inn. We checked in early after noon . The front desk person said they were having a wedding tonight but, it shouldn't effect us. The room they gave us faced the pool and the outside... More

Dear Sir, I'm sorry to hear your stay with us wasn't comfortable and relaxing. We do have an intimate property that was originally constructed for the Olympic Games hosted here in 1960. The Sierra Nevada summer nights tend to cool down nicely, but we experience some warmer days/nights as well throughout the summer months. Granted, room location with a special... More
