The Good: The hotel is very close to the centre of town (a block!) which makes it convenient to walk to breakfast and dinner. There is a great brewpub in Ellicottville that is only two blocks away. The room was large and clean, and there were a lot of towels in the bathroom (enough for 4 people in a room... More

My husband and I could stroll the shops, while the kids did there own thing by simply walking a block from our room. The Holiday Valley shuttle picked the kids up to night ski and then dropped them off, while we walked and had a cozy dinner and hit a few of the clubs. We had 2 adjoining rooms and... More

We got the upgraded room. You get what you pay for. Pleasant room, fresh flowers and spotless. Pretty much walked everywhere we needed to. What an awesome location. No risk partying. With everything so close, we didn't have to risk driving after having a few. We will be back!!

We stayed New Year's Eve and the only reason we stayed here was because of terrible road conditions. I now understand why there were 4 vacancies. It was definitely not worth $200. I know we were in room 10, just not sure if it was 4-10. But the room was like being in a dorm room. There were a few... More

We have stayed in the main building and it was fine, adequate for the price. Seems they are slowly updating the rooms in the main building. Last weekend we came to ski and stayed in the annex building and it was horrendous. The smell was noxious and the window did not open. The annex building is very old and in... More

I booked a room at this hotel, paid the total amount upfront (seems as though they have pretty ancient systems) only to be called 3 weeks later to tell me I could not have the room I already booked and paid for. They cancelled my reservation and told me I had no options but to try and book somewhere else... More

Trust me when I tell you I'm easy going. I understand things get old and break but a little maintenance and cleaning go a long way. It appears this place hasn't been maintained correctly in 10+ years. The front steps are rotted and sagging as is the deck and don't dare lean on the railing. Their cleaning staff needs to... More

Let me start by saying I’ve stayed at the Edelweiss on and off for over 20 years and this year was the last. The one and only reason I kept going back is location, it certainly wasn’t because of a friendly, helpful welcoming staff/owner. It is set up like a compound with the main house, which is the newest, in... More

The Edelweiss Lodge is a small family owned business, and we do try to accommodate our quests and their needs. Compared to some of the other lodgings we have very few rooms available and a rather small staff. The weekend of Fall Festival is one of the busiest of the year. Upon check-in, all quests are given a flyer with... More

I have stayed in both a chalet and the main building for 2 different snowboard trips to Holiday Valley. Chalet a bit dated, but good for crashing after a long day of boarding. Hotel style corner room was much nicer and had a wrap around style balcony. There is a heated full size swimming pool under a tarp barn kind... More

We arrived to be welcomed by a snarky receptionist who showed us to our room. We cringed at the outside of the building and when we opened the door to go in we were hit by the smell of urine or must- couldn't differentiate. There was body hair in our bathroom, even the evaluation form had water damage. We called... More

We're sorry these young ladies had a bad experience when it could have easily been avoided. We don't typically rent the older standard rooms in the off-season. I asked the desk clerk why they were put there. She answered that they had seen the lower rate room online and had insisted on booking it. After checking in, they called the... More
