Was here several weeks ago for a wedding - the wedding was at a venue off site - thank goodness. The accommodations at this place were deplorable! It is an insult to injury to call this place a resort much less charge customers close to $150/night to stay here. The mold around the door frames and in the shower was... More

Thank you for taking the time to review our property. I am terribly sorry your stay did not meet your expectations. As I mentioned when we spoke, our hotel is scheduled to update rooms again starting in 2015. They will be outfitted with new furniture including beds, desks, TV stands, chairs, new bedding, curtains, and brighter lighting. We also continue... More

I've stayed at this hotel about six times. This time was not good and the worst visit so far. The hotel is severely outdated and needs major improvement in the rooms. The "towers" section rooms resemble that of a tomb as when you walk in, you enter into a narrow hallway that immediately opens to a SMALL two-part bathroom and... More

Late check in and restaurant closed for dinner. No room service and needed to drive for dinner as nothing was available within walking distance. Pool was closing down the next day for maintenance. I would have liked to have been forwarned of the hours of the restaurant and pool status before booking. Room clean but air never really cooled down... More

We went for a family reunion in August. The resort is located in a pleasant area of western Maryland. Of course there is no skiing in August but one can go up on the chairlift. There is a golf course which we did not use but it looked nice. There are activities for kids. The room and service for our... More

The rooms were OK, beds and bedding older. Sheets didn't fit properly so uncomfortable as they didn't stay on. Coffee pot in room had a bad smell. The meeting rooms, food and service for our reunion were very good. Area was very nice. Overall it was enjoyable.

I just returned from a 3-day visit to WISP as part of a three-generation party. We were very pleased with the lodging (3 adjoining rooms) and the kids enjoyed many of the activities, although the major ones were a bit pricey. Food at the resort was okay, but nothing special. We chose to eat at non-resort restaurants most of the... More

Rooms were clean, but a bit outdated. The mattresses need to be replaced, as you could feel the edging and sank in the middle. It was okay for a one-night stay, but not the comfort of a "resort." The restaurant on site was cozy and the breakfast very good. The lobby was nicely appointed (looks like it's been updated), but... More

Visited the area on business and stayed one night at the Wisp. The area has many thing to do and I would like to go back and spend some time for pleasure. The Wisp Resort Hotel is dated but it is adequate. My room was clean and had a good night sleep. Had a great country breakfast before leaving the... More

There is so much to do at the Wisp. It is a beautiful resort. My kids had fun doing all the activities they offer, such as corn hole, chess, checkers, the entire family did the Mountain Coaster $29 for 3 tickets $14 for one. We brought our boat along and had no problem finding a place to park it. It... More

Visit the area as it is wonderful. However, this hotel is outdated. The suite and luxury rooms are awkward and enclose the bedroom without a window view. Desk manager was not very helpful. Seemed to be an inconvenience to explain the charges on our bill. We left one night early and inquired about a potential one night refund. She was... More
