“Basic, but everything you need on a snowboarding trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

If your looking for luxury, your looking at the wrong hotel. That being said thou, I dont think you can ask for more than what this hotel offers. Its close to town and the bus stops to the slopes. It offers basic, HUGE rooms with plenty of space, its warm and inviting. The owner is a real nice guy always happy to help, and he has a raft of local info. Parking is easy and free, you get a locker by the door to store your gear. Its very reasonably priced, the kitchenettes are perfectly fine for what they are needed for. My humble opinion is that in a small mountain town like this, a hotel like this is a real gem. quite, un assuming and very welcoming. The hot tub is a hot tub what more can you say.

Arrived from Denver International after a long trip from New Zealand. The motel building is a bit dated but clean with spacious rooms. Very friendly and helpful manager quickly had us all relaxed. Comfortable beds, reasonably quiet for the main road position and certainly handy to retaurants and ski shops. Orange juice and croissants outside the door in the morning. We stayed for a couple of nights and found it very good value for the price paid.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

Our room was very spacious, 2 queen beds and space for a roll away bed since we have 3 kids. Bathroom/kitchen was separate with a door so mom could get up and shower without waking everyone. Clean, comfortable. Beds were ok, a bit bouncy for my taste, but overall comfortable. People above us were noisy - sounded like kids jumping off the bed and running across the room until very late, so soundproofing could be better. Next to main road into winter park, the snow plows woke me at 5:00am. Got some earplugs the 2nd night. Continental breakfast was limited, but my kids loved it. Hot tub was outside and a bit too cold to go out there.

Room Tip: Might get a room on the 2nd floor to avoid noise from people above you.

We drove around Winter Park looking for a place to stay and settled on the Valley Hi. So happy we did! We have a large room, cozily furnished. The property is a bit older but the owners have done a lot to make it comfortable. The staff is really friendly and knowledgeable about the area.

Winter park seems to be very quiet during the off-season. So I guess there were just a few guests. The hotel might be a good place during a skiing vacation. If you stay there longer than one day, you should think about a more comfortable place. Breakfast consisted of a croissant and orange juice. The reception area of the hotel was just a small room reminding of a camping cabin.

This is a great motel to stay in...the owner is very kind and the rooms are very clean. For the summer months you need to know that the rooms don't have air conditioning so the rooms can get a little warm. I imagine that in the winter months the room would be very comfortable. The rooms are very large & spacious and they have microwaves & and small fridge for all of your needs. I would definitely stay here again.

We were really impressed with the motel, it's location, the cleanliness and the staff. I stayed with a friend in a spacious two queen bed room that seemed to have been recently refurbished.

I thought the value for money was great - for the price it definitely exceeded our expectations.
