We regularly stay at this hotel (more than 7 times) while skiing at Crystal Mountain and have been very satisfied. Now, let's be honest here. This is an Econo Lodge so you need to be realistic with your expectations. We have found the rooms to be clean, the staff to be really friendly and helpful, a reasonable selection for continental...

We are happy you enjoyed your stay. You and your group were great and we would love to have you back. We replaced pillows earlier this year and they were not the quality we were led to believe so we just received a new shipment from a different supplier and they will be going in the rooms next week.

The beds sag, there was mold in the tub and on the shower curtain, the pastries for the breakfast keep getting re-served until some dumb fool eats them, and the coffee is weak. The bed spread is original, and it is doubtful that it has been washed since the place opened

Agreeing with previous reviewer, I would have expected these low standards at a $50 hotel but for $100 i would at least expect clean sheets and towels. The first bed that we turned down had stains on the blanket, sheets and yellowed pillows. The second that we ended up sleeping in had a comforter that smelled like a stinky armpit.... More
