“That 70's Show”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2014

I believe that "that 70's show" was filmed at the Inn at Snowshoe. My family (2 adults, 2 kids) stayed there for the two days in a 2br, 1 bath room (277).

First I will say that the room was kinda clean and the staff was very helpful, but after that it was down here faster than Lindsey Vonn. The room was old and musty, peeling wallpaper, stained ceilings, sleeper sofa was broken, bathroom had mold around tub, and the carpet was worn and dated.

I understand that it suppose to be cheaper at the bottom but I paid $600 for two nights and feel that was entirely to high.

If you do stay there utilize the shuttle for access to the top of the mountain, there is very limited parking on top, and if you rent skies use the Ski Barn near the Inn (they were great and it was cheaper than the top).

There is no cell phone coverage on the mountain (AT&T is very spotty) and the Inn's WiFi did not work, I had to buy a calling card (blast from part right) just to make some contact with home.

This hotel was average. The staff was polite, the room was clean. There is NO cell service at the base of the mountain. The Internet was limited to the center of the of the lobby and directly above the lobby. The indoor pool was cold but the hot tub was just right! The price was fair for what you get. If you stay at the resort at the top of the mountain you will twice the price. The resort food and the skiing were great and will go again soon!

I made a phone reservation, the customer rep was charming and I had great expectations for the this hotel, but we were so disappointed. The check in was so unpleasant, perhaps she had a rough day, but when I asked for the coupons for the free chair lift ride, described to me by the reservation agent, she was so condescending, - you want the coupons she said! The room was no better, the wall paper was peeling, it smelt of damp and was sorely in need of renovations. The breakfast food was pretty awful too. It was a hot buffet, but it was very poor quality. I know accommodations are few and far between in the area, and I guess Snowshoe has a reputation, but this hotel does not live up to that. When I mentioned my disappointment when I checked out, they said, well we only have one maintenance man, and it takes him along time to renovate 1 room.

Spent a lovely three days here and was rejuvenated and refreshed upon departure. The staff was helpful, kind and considerate. Would recommend during in-season as well as off. I was there during non peak season. The restaurants and stores have limited hours, but I was still able to shop and eat well. I loved dining at The Fox Fire, as did others, there were local groups as well as tourist groups. The Inn is a good spot to stay if you are sight seeing, train riding and leaf looking.

We stumbled into the Inn at Snowshoe on very short planning, after coming off the Stargazer train of the Durbin & Greenbrier Railroad, where on the way back down the mountain we noticed in a local area flyer that the Green Bank National Radio Astronomy Observatory was having a free Family Fun Day the next day on Sunday.

Rather than make the two and a half hour drive home, we decided to make a total astronomy weekend out of our train trip and drove late down to Snowshoe. It and a few other distant hotels, spread out in the area, are sort of the only game in town, so we hit Snowshoe to see what kind of deal we could get.

Coming in late, the lady working reception was extremely friendly, and sympathetic to our plight being late with sleeping kids, etc., and gave us a great deal. She also provided us with free passes to recreation facilities there and the tram for the following day as well, and free breakfast. We only used the breakfast since we were heading for the NRAO, but the intent was awesome.

The room was decent, general and typical of an average hotel room, the beds were comfortable, the room and bathroom was clean. There was nothing spectacular about it ,but nothing out of the ordinary or bad either. We had 2 full size beds, a few chairs, a table, separate HVAC unit with in room controls, full back, TV and dressers. It was fairly spacious as well.

The hospitality is what made the different. The next day, in order to use the pool and hot tubs, they gave us a late checkout, which was perfect to have a pleasurable breakfast (sausage, waffles, bisquits and gravy, fruit, teas, coffee, cereals, muffins, etc) and then the kids were able to enjoy the pool for a good while.

The Inn is in the middle of the national radio blackout area, with strict controls on radio signals, so they have internet, but it's limited to the pool and lounge/lobby area. People complaining about the pool being off the lobby are ridiculous. It's a public hotel pool, you expect privacy? Seriously? Anyway, had it not been where it is located, we wouldn't have been able to sit there on our laptops and iphones reviewing our pictures and catching up on email/etc, which we hadn't been able to do since early the day before when we drove into the radio blackout area.

From past experiences there are a ton of great recreational activities in the area, including those offered by Snowshoe Resort. The Inn has ample parking, is attractive, and is staffed by very friendly folks. Ignore the naysayers and come with confidence. Don't expect the Ritz of a 5 star hotel, but you're in the middle of some of the most beautiful mountains in the world, and you're not paying 5 or even 4 star prices either (unless you're good at Priceline like me).

It is what it is, and it's a deal for what it is. Some people can't be pleased. I don't want to stay in a room next to them anyway. Enjoy the Inn at Snowshoe in the beautiful mountains, go for a hike, take a bike ride, ride the train, ride the tram. Get fit, get active, and enjoy yourself. Then go relax in the pool, with or without your kids. Cheers.

The rooms are very comfortable and reasonably priced. If you are coming to this area, and need to save a little, this is the place to stay. If you need something to eat, you are out of luck. We have stayed here several times and the food is just not up to par. You would think with the skiing population, it would be more than it is, but it's not. Staff is very friendly.

This place was a dump. Old, peeling wallpaper, chipped paint, not very clean. There is a pool and hot tub smack in the middle of the circular designed building, absolutely no privacy. The restaurant was only open for breakfast (August). The food was mediocre, eggs seemed like powdered eggs, served luke warm. Fruit was canned not fresh. There was no fitness center.
