A friend and I spent one night at the Inn at Sugar late in the ski season and got a great deal that included two lift tickets and breakfast.
While the conditions were mediocre at best due to the warm weather and lack of fresh snow, the accommodations far exceeded our expectations. The porter, the hotel manager, and front desk staff all greeted us warmly. If you arrive before your room is ready they will put your bags in storage and give you access to the lodge's private locker room to change into your ski gear.
The Inn itself is small consisting of only about 20 rooms. We stayed in room 300, top floor on the corner. All rooms face towards the ski resort, have a patio and an amazing view. The rooms were very clean, spacious and well appointed. It had a classic, European flair to it, and is the perfect compliment to a long weekend on the slopes. There is a great little bar downstairs, a high-end restaurant and a cozy common lodge room for guests with free Wi-Fi.
Parking is included with your stay, but you have to take the gondola from about a mile away, but it drops you right in the hotel, so from your car to the room, you don't have to step outside.
The biggest bonus of them all is that you get to step out of the front doors of the Inn and walk about 20 yards to two different ski lifts! A huge plus.
Upsides - Impeccable service, clean and comfortable, convenient to ski lifts, great classic ski atmosphere, and free parking.
Downsides - Noise from the snowcats grooming at night. The rooms look out onto the lodge's deck which during peak times could get noisy during the evening.
