I recently spent a week at the Mittersill Alpine Resort for a ski trip in March. We had a one bedroom unit. We arrived very late on Friday night and were awakened early in the morning by our downstairs neighbors having a conversation and the baby next door screaming. With trepidation, we went to the front desk to complete our check in process. The man said he has never gotten any complaints of noise and there are quiet hours in place. It was not as if these people were being loud, just living their lives. We decided to not request at that point to move units because our view was awesome of a ski run coming down Mittersill Mtn. As it turns out, it seemed as if everyone checked out and we had the place to ourselves. You can still hear people talking and walking in the hall but it was not a big deal. I imagine when the resort is full it would be very loud. Apparently ski season is off season up there. The unit was sufficient. The kitchen was well stocked with cooking stuff (no blender). It was kind of tight for 2 people to be in the kitchen at the same time but no big woop. It looked as if some parts of the condo had been updated as far as furniture. Nothing was dilapidated and falling apart. There was a flat screen tv in the living room, old one in the bedroom. The bed was pretty comfortable but the linens were awful as were the towels. Blankets had us sneezing all night. The bathroom had not been renovated and was pretty gross. The tub was peeling off paint or something and was moldy. I would absolutely never take a bath in it. The shower head was so old it put out one small steam of water. But it seemed like there was radiant heat in the bathroom floor which heated the tiles and toilet and that was awesome on a cold night! So, some parts of the unit were very outdated but some were not. Overall, it was a comfortable place to stay for a week. I would be concerned about neighbor noise if I was to stay there again. There also is no a/c which I imagine might get hot in the summer. There was a small fan in the closet. There is NO mid week maid cleaning. You can switch towels at the desk if you want. The resort is kind of like a maze and it’s easy to get lost which was fun. Its still very old school decorating which I happened to find appealing but it is certainly not fancy or luxurious. The game room was pretty cool with ping pong and air hockey. There were 2 hot tubs which intermittently were heated. The sauna was not working. The indoor pool was too cold for me but there were definitely kids playing in there every day. The restaurant was only open on Fri-Sun so we didn’t eat there. They are quite adamant about it being a non-smoking place but there were ashtrays located by all the entrance doors so you’re greeted by the smell of old cigarettes as soon as you walk in. It was really weird not to mention gross since they stated over and over you can’t smoke. It is pretty isolated from anything to do. It’s about 15 minutes to get to a store in Franconia proper. If skiing at Cannon, it’s an actual hike (15 minutes uphill) to ski Mittersill mountain and if you can find the run right down to the condo you would have to walk back to the lift. So, I would call it ski in but not ski out. And it’s all ungroomed terrain so you can’t ski-in with novices/kids. Most of the restaurants around the area were closed for the season so I can’t recommend any places to eat. Lincoln had a nice little Main Street with some galleries and shopping. So, I would stay here again for a ski trip. It’s not fancy but good enough. I would worry about no a/c in the summer and the noise factor when it’s crowded. I would ask for a room facing the mountain. Many units faced the parking lot. But the location is central for venturing to a lot of places.
