Based on the reviews on trip advisor, I was expecting a really luxury style lodge. The lodge is nice, but its more a of a lodge hotel - it is nice, but lacks character and the little extras that make a 5 star hotel. We were expecting something more in lines with White Face Lodge in Lake Placid (which is a true 5 star). Below is an honest assessment of our stay.
- We stayed in a junior suite with a view of the mountain (according to the front desk, the best view in the house). While we had a great view of the mountain, we also felt like we were in the parking lot - the hotel balconies all face the parking lot! Other views in the hotel offered pool views (but there was construction). The junior suite is ok, the kitchen is very small and offers a microwave, stove top and mini fridge. The furnishings are what you would probably find in an old cabin (not luxe at all), The bed however is very good. One annoying thing to note is that the smoke alarm in the rooms flashes very brightly when you are sleeping - its like strobe lights!
- We used the hot tub and pool, the water was tolerable, but not as warm as one might expect for an all season pool.
- Excellent Food! Food is very reasonable, but the coffee/drinks etc are very expensive ($6 for a hot chocolate; 5 cappacino etc).
- Very spotty. Front desk people are great; housekeeping is very SLOW. We needed to call down a number of times to have our room serviced. They didn't come until 3 pm. (that is after a number of phone calls).
- You are charged for each game.
- Nice, but not the best.
It may seem that we are fussy travelers, but when you are paying for a hotel that is 5 stars, you expect 5 star service/amenities.
