Family oriented hotel. Great for families learning to skie or who plan near by trips. Not fancy, a bit old but with retails for super cheap, great breakfast, pool, jacuzzi sauna and awesome service. Ideal for families

We had such a great time. We booked an executive suite and were so pleasantly surprised when we checked in. There was a full kitchen, living room, fireplace, dining room, and two bedrooms. The breakfast buffet was great. The hot tub was relaxing and clean. We will definitely come back.

At our first stay ever, we arrived in our hotel room at 9pm on a Friday. The room smelled of musty dorm room. The décor was far from pleasant and needed updating. That aside, we turned down the sofabed, to find that the sheets were not changed from a previous guest's stay. Called to the desk and they brought us... More

We stayed here for 5nights and enjoyed every night, the catering staff are absolutely out of this world and will see to your every need. Our room was cleaned every day and the logs for the fire were replenished at the same time. It is quite a way from alpine and squaw valley but it didn't bother us too much.

With 2 little kids during an extremely busy long week-end, Granlibakken was an amazing experience. We had everything we where looking for on-site! Breakfast, lunch and dinner where served there, no need to drive to a restaurant and wait 60-90 minutes in line with hungry cranky kids. The sledding area was Heaven for our kids. The Sauna and Hot Tub... More

The Granlibakken was a great choice for us. We have four kids and usually have a terrible time finding a hotel suite that is comfy, with amenities like a kitchenette and fridge, semi-modern, and not crazy expensive. We had a connecting master suite and put our kids into a larger room with a murphy bed and sleeper coach. Plus, the... More
