My wife and I went for our 3 year wedding anniversary to hit the slopes and ski for a long weekend. We picked the hotel for the proximity to the ski slope. It seems like the hotel banks on getting service due to being right on the slope and does not try to impress otherwise. The rooms were outdated, the... More

We stayed one night last weekend. We had a pet friendly queen two room suite. The layout of the room was strange. Upon entering the room, there was a very long hallway leading to the bedroom and the living area. The living area had a murphy bed and was tiny. It made what would have been a very large hotel...

This place has seen better days. My room had extremely dated furnishings, except for the tv which was at least a flatscreen, and had a musty feel to it. My biggest complaint was the issue with the wifi though. Cell service is very spotty in this area so I was looking forward to being able to utilize the hotel's wifi.... More

Stan, I am terribly sorry you had a bad experience connecting to our Wi-Fi during your recent stay. I understand how frustrating that can be. As we speak, we are completely upgrading our system throughout the entire hotel. All new wire is being run and new hardware is being installed. As habits change so does the need for Wi-Fi. What...

We stayed a few days for a midweek ski break. This hotel is right at the base of the slopes and our suite had a slope view, seperate bedroom and a murphy bed in the small living room area and 1 bathroom. The bed was very comfortable and the room was clean. You are given a ski locker on the... More

This is the 2nd year we've stayed there for a conference we stayed in the "nicest" suite level available but after we got there we found the room having cosmetic issues and the suite hospitality lounge closed. Hotel hasn't see common area updates in years and almost nonexistent food and beverage on site in off season.

The hotel is nice enough, and ski in, ski out is definitely great and very convenient. That said, I think the hotel is relying on that convenience to draw visitors rather than making sure service is up to par. To start with, the rooms are small, old, and outdated. The layout of the lodge and its connection to the ski... More

We recently stayed the mid-week after Presidents Day weekend. They are apparently under new ownership and seem to have added to their off-season activities (rope course, etc). Surprisingly (and happily!) it was cheaper to stay there, with more amenities, than to stay at Liberty, even with our Advantage Card. They have added a ramen noodle and burrito bar, and soy... More

While the skiing and ski instructors were good, the accommodations and food need a boost. Lots of choices in the buffet area of the lodge, but not very tasty. Fast food at best. Lodging spacious in general areas but bathrooms are cramped, why?? And why the murphy bed? Overall, a nice time had but we'll seek out another, more current,... More
