I have always wanted to stay at Sun Mountain Lodge. Now that I have, I don't understand what people rave about. Because of the early dark nights, no lights for driving and a 10-15 min windy drive to town, I never left the lodge. I was bored and felt trapped.
Food/bev - there are only two choices for dining. The main dining room is very expensive, so I ate at the more casual bar/grill. There is little variety on the menu and too many game meat selections. I got very bored with the choices. The service was okay. Wine by the glass choices was moderate. At each meal, my water glass smelled like bleach. Coffee and espresso were awful.
Main rooms - the lodge has beautiful grand fireplaces. On more than one occasion the lobby area smelled like gas. The conference rooms were freezing cold and had poor AV. The cell phones interferred with the audio and gave a horrible sound that interrupted the presentations. Why can't they fix the problem? Every other hotel conference room can handle cell phones and AV. The catering for snacks was better than the bar/grill.
Guest rooms -The bed was nice, but the comforter was a little thin for the winter. The bathroom was very nice. I had a room with a TV. Thank goodness, as most guests had to sit around community televisions to watch. It felt like a dorm room. The lighting in the rooms was poor.
Spa- way too expensive
