Our family really enjoyed the location, the ski lift, hikes, and pool. We stayed in the suite that could sleep 8. This was a 2 story room. The room had a microwave, fridge, table, 2 person couch, toilet/sink, and pull out bed upstairs. Not enough seating and odd not to have a sink with the "kitchen" area. The pull out bed was very comfortable but the edges of the bed were bare metal. My husband sliced his toe pretty badly on the corner of the bed and my children banged the corner many times. We had to put pillows on the floor to protect our feet and ankles. This could be a cheap fix with a plastic corner guard.
Downstairs had two bedrooms: one with two bunk beds and the other with a queen. At night we discovered the bunk bed room had no lights due to an electrical problem in the room. A lamp was brought in.
A plus is the quiet rooms, you cannot hear the ppl in the adjacent rooms. A minus is 1 shower for a room that sleeps 8.
Breakfast came with the room. The food was good but the service was terrible. Both days we had to ask for drinks. Both days we were told excuses, "we only have 1 person working or we just had a rush." It's not to hard to know the occupancy rate and be able to staff for it. The servers were friendly when you finally were able to get service. I heard someone ask the waitress if there was an ice machine and she didn't know where it was.
I wouldn't go there again because I thought the price of the room wasn't worth it. I'd stay down the hill in Driggs, ID.
