We have stayed here previous two summers so my husband could run the race here. It's pretty much we have to stay here or else very far away. This year things seem to have gone down hill. Rate still good and they don't require us to stay two nights on the weekend which is good. Room had cracks in wall... More

I was part of a group that recently stayed at Devil's Head Resort in summer. The area is quite spectacular with high bluffs, rollling countryside and the beautiful Devil's Lake. Unfortunately, the resort needs quite a lot of work. It is aging and has a lot of deferred maintenance. The staff tried very hard to make the best of the... More

My husband and I stayed at the resort for one night because we were chaperones for an event and it was the closet hotel nearby. Overall, the staff was friendly during our stay there. However, this place is seriously outdated, it feels more 60's late 70's and didn't have a warm clean feel. The rooms are bare bone, beds are... More

We have stayed at Devil's Head twice. This last time I decided would be the last. The rooms are really borderline acceptable and in great need of renovations. We were woken at 2a.m. by drunken 20-somethings swearing and fighting with their girlfriends. It took three calls to security to get them quieted down. We did complain in the morning and... More

It's definitely not luxurious. It needs some updating but our room was clean and the bed/sheets were clean so I was happy enough after reading the reviews since I knew what I was going into. We had dinner at Cornucopia at the resort and had a very nice dinner. Shrimp cocktail was impressive and yummy. I had the filet and... More

Really enjoyed the skiing. The package we purchased included lessons, rentals, lift tickets and meals. Ski instructors and equipment rentals excellent. Food and service was horrific. All greasy bar food. Thought we'd safe with Cornacopia with salmon or filet. Gross. Service was good 2 nights. 3rd night we were seated and didn't see wait staff or menu for 45 minutes... More

old school resort and rooms. kind of a time vault locked in the 70's. the rooms however, are clean and comfortable. the staff is kind and helpful, and the skiing is fun and accessible. very fun resort, just don't expect the four seasons...

This review is for the ski area only. When the first thing you notice as you get off the chairlift at the top is a field of harvested corn, you definitely know you are skiing in the midwest. As such, one must set expectations accordingly, and enjoy what is there. Devils Head offered good snow coverage, excellent grooming, and plentiful... More

I brought the family up from Chicago for a day of skiing and my first impression of the room was bad news. As soon as I walked in the room it smelled like wet dog and I had to kill two bees that were hanging out on the window sill. We went down to Dante's to grab lunch before hitting... More

The lodge side of the resort was ok. Room was plain but not gross. Great time skiing staff was great and had a ton of fun but the food in the restaurants were not worth the time ad money we spent. If you can bring your own food or venture out to get something it's well worth it. The food... More
