If the hotels of the world collectively decided one day to adopt a new policy of not permitting a renter to bring a guest back to their room, the hotel industry would collapse in a big huge heap. I'd say at least 80% of all hotel rooms are rented for the sole purpose of having a sleepover guest. Can you even imagine the businessmen of the world being told no women allowed back to their rooms? Hey, rock bands, no groupies? Hey spring breakers, no hookups allowed back in your rooms? No. That would be ludicrous. And yet, apparently that is the Kaatskill Mt Club's policy.
During the weekend of the Country Music Festival in June, I and a group of other girls rented a suite to stay in. The hotel had no problem accepting a large amount of money from us, then turned into the hookup police. They expected us to wear wristbands and no guests were allowed back in the hotel with us. This was especially unfortunate for myself and my cousin, who were forced to change in our car bc the management decided they had let enough people from our party in the hotel. I paid 200 dollars to sleep for about 5 hours on a pullout couch, not shower and no breakfast. Who has ever had to wear a wristband to get into their hotel room? The staff was rude and treated everyone with suspicion. I'm not talking about just my group. The management was so worried about extra people sneaking into rooms that they forgot to treat their paying customers with any professional
courtesy. They knew what kind of a venue was being held and we all paid dearly to secure a place to stay. And the place wasn't even worth it. If you are looking to pay a fortune to be treated like a 16 year old on a school trip, then this is the place for you. I have been to the mountain every year since I'm a kid and a lot of the new improvements are not improvements at all. Give me the old Hunter Highlands or HVI or Slopes over this tacky shitbox. Those places had charm and history. The Kaatskill
MT Club with its inane spelling is bland, boring and NOT where you want to stay.
