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

We had planned our trip to Devil's Head for the Christmas holidays. We had not been on skis for almost 30 years, but based on past experience at the resort, decided to go again. Reading some of the bad reviews I feared we had made a mistake. The mistake had been reading the reviews! Yes, the rooms are not posh... More

My wife and I stayed this past week - skied and stayed at lodge. The skiing was good. Lodge room pleasant. Price was great. I had been in Chicago on business and this was a perfect get away. Wish we could have stayed longer. Terrific value

We had 7 rooms for a group of families for New Years. The hotel was gross, dirty, filthy, way dated. Food everywhere was horrible, service not good. The fruit was even expired and sour. We will never return!
