We had a very relaxing stay at this Inn. The pool and spa were excellent and the complimentary bicycles were taken advantage of by us. Superb location immediately across from aerial tram. The quality of the restaurant food was a bit disappointing for the price and the appearance of some of the wait staff was less than professional, in our... More

The staff is great, but our room--and much of the hotel-- was dark and a little dreary with outdated decor. Nice pool area and great location, plus dog friendly. My biggest complaint was the noise level we experienced from our room, which faced the patio and restaurant. Some kind of fan or vent was blasting from early morning until late... More

I have stayed at Plump Jack 4 times over the last 7 years, attending the Wanderlust Festival. Perhaps my background in Luxury Hotel ownership and management makes me a bit more observant, but this perfectly located luxury inn has become worn out and needs some serious updating, especially considering their Rates, and the fact that the views are horrible. Carpeting,... More

Exceptional service from the valet and check in throughout our stay. The staff is very friendly and always willing to help. Great hotel location in the heart of squaw valley. We stayed at the hotel for a friend's wedding. The food during the reception was excellent. I have a lot of food allergies, and they were easily accommodated .

I loved almost everything about this hotel except the AC was broken. All the employees were super nice and the dog loved this hotel. However, for almost $400 I would hope the AC would work. We did have a fan in the room but it didn't do too much. The hotel was within walking distance to the mountain and restaurants... More

Hi Tiffany - thanks for joining us recently. We love it when guests bring their dogs as Squaw Valley and all it has to offer is a stellar spot for the entire family to enjoy. Summer temperatures were above average as of late and it can make evening relaxation a bit warm. We do have AC in public spaces and... More

Only one suite in this upscale hotel has air conditioning. While the public areas are air conditioned, our room wasn't and with the summer heat, it was difficult to sleep. The front desk suggested using the fans in our room, which we did, but it was still too hot to sleep.

We booked our son's and daughter-in-law's wedding here. Everything was first class, expecially the way we were treated by the staff. The staff was so very accommodating!!! The wedding venue was beautiful and the conference rooms for the banquet and for the dancing were perfect. The next day, we held a bocce ball tournament on the grounds, which capped off... More

PlumpJack is a funny name and a nice place to stay. No less than six pillows backed the king size bed. A beer-stocked fridge but no microwave hides in a bureau that is topped by a flat panel and a couple bottles of "honor" wine. A June visit will have you leaving a window cracked or wide open. Either way,... More

Good day John B - Thank you for the recent visit and for sharing insight into your stay. Our hotel was built just prior to the 1960 Winter Olympics and it definitely has its quirks and historic charm. We look forward to welcoming you back this summer or perhaps when the snow flies in the coming winter season. Take care,... More
